Functional Health and Wellness exclusively offers the MedX Lumbar Extension Machine to strengthen the lower back for injury prevention but also to treat patients with chronic low back pain. The MedX Lumbar Extension Machine provides functional testing and spinal therapy. A unique system of pelvic stabilization provides true isolation of the deep muscles of the lumbar spine. Weakness of these muscles can be responsible for chronic disability and persistent or recurring pain.
