Effect of Focused Strength Training After Low Back Injury

    This research project which involved patients in the Orthomed program at the University of California San Diego studied the efficacy of a conditioning program using the MedX Lumbar Extension Machine. The study tracked back strength, lift capacity, self-perception, pain rating, and activity level.

    Effect of Resistance Training on Lumbar Extension Torque Production

      This study is from a physical therapy research paper which examines the impact of isometric lumbar extension torque across 12- and 20-week periods. Participants were put into 5 training groups after completing the 12- or 20-week training. The participants were tested in a seated position at 7 different angles at a 72-degree range of motion (ROM).
