Spinal Decompression


Spinal Decompression With The VAX-D Table

VAX-D is the only medical device that delivers treatment through its patented logarithmic decompression curve. The treatment is designed to relieve pressure on structures that may be causing back pain usually associated with bulging or herniated discs and degenerative disc disease. VAX-D is safe, effective and does not involve the risks associated with surgery or injections also used to treat chronic back pain.  Studies have proven that VAX-D reduces the pressure within the discs from a positive pressure to a negative pressure.  (Average standing pressure on the discs is 200 mm. of mercury; With VAX-D, minus 150 mm. of mercury).  This creates a vacuum-type effect on the disc and allows for a suctioning of the disc material back into its normal position.  VAX-D addresses the disc problem rather than just relieves the pain.  A four-year study showed that the majority of patients were still pain-free four years after completing the VAX-D regimen and 91% had returned to normal activities. 

VAX-D is the original patented, Non-Surgical Treatment for Low Back Pain and the only treatment that delivers VAX-D’s patented decompression curve, resulting in a success rate of over 70%.  VAX-D Therapy has been proven safe and effective in numerous clinical studies. Over 3000 patients a day are being treated with VAX-D Therapy.

Many patients and physicians have asked if VAX-D Treatment is any different than ‘traction’. In addition, the emergence and success of VAX-D Therapy has spawned a host of new medical devices (copycats) all claiming to be the same as VAX-D in their principles of operation and in their success rates. This has created a lot of confusion and questions about their similarities and effectiveness.   Many doctors with simple traction devices are advertising them as “decompression”.  Although traction devices can stretch the lower back, they have not demonstrated the ability to decompress the lumbar discs and spinal nerves.  VAX-D research is published in peer-reviewed medical journals.
