Arthur Jones, the founder of Nautilus, founded Med-X which developed an incredible medical Lumbar Extension machine which has helped thousands of people reduce or eliminate their back pain. MedX continued on to develop the MedX Cervical Extension, Rotary Neck and Torso, and Knee/Hamstring machines which produce specific and accurate tests of functional ability.
MedX progressed even more to develop a full line of exercise-only machines. These machines incorporated MedX's patented compound weight stack which reduces user strain and made it possible for individuals to select the exact level of resistance required regardless of their strength.
MedX has recently developed exercise versions of its medical machines and branded them the Core Spinal Fitness System. In less than 20 minutes, twice a week, these five machines focus on the strength, stability, flexibility and endurance of the body's core, providing a solid foundation for whole body strength.
CIPT is pleased to offer the MedX system to its patients whereby their experience and physical therapy benefits are maximized. We are one of the few physical therpay clinics in Georgia to offer this exceptional treatment method.
