MedX Treatment: What Is It?

Our treatment centre is equipped with specialised MedX equipment designed to rehabilitate your spine and deal with spinal pain by removing weaknesses and instability from the spine.

MedX is a tool used for assessing and rehabilitating your spine using advanced technology. It measures your backs flexibility and strength with utmost accuracy and compares the results you get with the data of other individuals of the same gender, age, weight, and height.

The main focus and target of MedX are the paravertebral muscles found in your back. The muscles are affected by shutdowns and injury, negatively affecting the movement pattern in and around your spine.

In severe and chronic cases, the spinal muscles can become weak and deconditioned, creating excessive pressure on your spine’s passive structure such as discs and facet joints. Should patients let this condition persist, it can cause degeneration of the passive structures. As such, the discs might suffer from herniation, or they might become bulged. The facets, on the other hand, might suffer from facet joint arthropathy.

Is MedX The Right Treatment For You?

MedX has utility in treating chronic back conditions as well as acute onset of the back conditions. Even with a proper diagnosis, most pathologies can cause spinal muscles to weaken and malfunction when left untreated. This increases the load on your back’s passive structures, causing such structures to degenerate over time.

Below is a comprehensive list of the conditions that MedX can successfully treat.

  • Arthritis
  • Scoliosis
  • Recurrent Low Back Pain

Unfortunately, not everyone can benefit from MedX treatment. This can include individuals with the following:

  • Severe Osteoporosis
  • Acute Post-Surgical Patients (before six weeks of recovery have elapsed)

Weak backs become sore and this can inevitably weaken the back. MedX is ideally suited to break this cycle and rehabilitate your back while strengthening it. Our experience points to over 80% of our patients reporting significant rehabilitation and sustained improvements from our treatment programs.

Our highly qualified clinicians have been specially trained and use their expertise to treat a wide variety of back conditions.
