Rehabilitate Your Spine With MedX

Did you know that back pain is the leading cause of disability in the world. In fact, up to 80% of the population will experience back pain at some point in their lives. If you suffer from this common condition, the MedX system could be the perfect solution for you.

Dr. David Sudderth is a board-certified neurologist in Fort Myers, Florida, with years of experience in treating back pain. Your spinal health is our greatest concern, and we’re dedicated to providing you with treatments that can give you effective and lasting relief. That’s why we’re proud to offer MedX spinal rehabilitation, a revolutionary treatment for your back problems.

What causes back pain?

Back pain could be the result of injury, or it could be due to degeneration as part of the natural aging process. Certain conditions like osteoporosis, which weakens your bone mass, can also cause back pain. 

There are also certain lifestyle factors like not exercising very much, carrying excess weight, or smoking that can cause or worsen back pain. Those who have jobs that involve heavy lifting or performing the same repetitive motions also seem to be at a greater risk for developing the condition. 

No matter the causes, back pain can be debilitating and greatly affect your quality of life. Back pain can present as an aching, shooting, or stabbing pain. And it can even radiate down your legs and cause numbing or tingling. So, it’s important to get back pain treated right away, as waiting can worsen the problem.

How the MedX system treats back pain 

The MedX system is an advanced spinal rehabilitation exercise machine. Considered the gold standard for treating back pain, MedX is currently helping more than 5,600 satisfied monthly users. And, the system is designed to be effective for all ages and fitness levels. 

The treatment fits conveniently into your busy schedule. With MedX, you come into our office for two 15-minute appointments per week, where we guide you through exercises on the machine that are designed to strengthen your spinal muscles. 

The machine is great for strengthening the smaller muscles of your spine that aren’t targeted with traditional physical therapy methods. You should notice immediate results. In addition to strengthening your back, MedX decreases pain, increases your range of motion, increases blood flow, and pumps out inflammation and fluid build up that can worsen back problems. 

If you’ve tried more traditional therapeutic methods for your back pain and have experienced little to no relief, then the MedX system could be the ideal solution for you. Call us to make an appointment and to get more information today.
