Why You Don’t Have to Live With Low Back Pain “Is LowBack Pain Holding You Back FromYour Fitness Goals? ”

Do you suffer froman aching back?Whether it is a short-lived muscle spasm, or a long-term problem, your back is telling you something! Your spine is a complex structure made up of bones, muscles, discs, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. It is the hub of your nervous system where messages to and from your brain travel to different parts of your body. It is so complex, that it takes years for you to master the ability to stand up straight, walk, and run. As we age, it is very common to suffer aches and pains in the lower back, typically because of poor posture and prolonged sitting, or previous injuries; however aches and pains are a sign of underlying problems. Your spine relies on proper posture, alignment, strength, and coordination. When any one of these key areas doesn’t work right, strain and stress occurs on the spine, sparking inflammation and pain. Inflammationweakens the spinal muscles and leg muscles, causing difficulty with everyday activities. Getting up and down from the floor, squatting, standing for long periods, and even walking can become a problem. This can really affect your life and the longer the problem persists, the more long-term damage can occur. (continued inside)

3 Common SPINE Problem Areas “ What Could Be Causing My Low Back Pain? ”

Whether you have back pain, neck pain, or radiating arm / leg pain, we can help. Your spine must be flexible, strong, and healthy in order for you to maintain a pain free body. We ensure that you’ll achieve the best results for your back/neck pain with the Fit 4 Life spine program. UPPER SPINE Pain or injury here is often responsible for headaches to the scalp and face. This area helps with overall body balance and the ability to rotate the neck. Conditions involving the upper spine often present as limited motion and contribute to a forward head posture. As a result, this increases strain on the neck causing muscle pain and tension. In addition, weakness and pain to the shoulders, arms, hands, and fingers can be common. MID SPINE Pain or injuries here can cause limited motion and mid-back pain. The nerves exiting this area are responsible for digestion, heart and lung function. Limited motion here also increases the amount of strain on the lower spine. LOWER SPINE A common area of low back pain and radiating leg pain. This area can cause a significant amount of back pain because it is supposed to rotate with walking. Furthermore, this is a common area for disc herniation that can cause pain, numbness and tingling into the buttocks, thighs, legs or feet.

Tech Spotlight HISTORY OF MEDX: Arthur Jones is the legendary founder of Nautilus. In 1986, he founded MedX to perfect the testing of human strength, endurance and range of motion. After years of development and testing, validated by independent research teams at the University of Florida, MedX perfected its medical Lumbar Extension machine. It has since helped tens of thousands of people around the world reduce or eliminate their back pain. Subsequent developments produced the MedX Cervical Extension, Rotary Neck and Torso, and Knee/Hamstring machines, providing the medical community with the first tools capable of producing specific and accurate tests of functional ability, as well as the finest source of rehabilitative exercise. MedX applied the knowledge gained from its medical machines to the design of a full line of exercise-only machines. These machines incorporated MedX’s patented compound weight stack which produces less friction and enables several hundred levels of available resistance in increments of 2ft-lbs. This feature reduces user strain and, for the first time, made it possible for individuals to select the exact level of resistance required regardless of their strength. In 2002, MedX created 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 can help reduce or eliminate back pain by focusing on strength, stability, flexibility and endurance of the body’s core, providing a solid foundation for whole-body strength.
