By now, you have probably read about or seen a commercial for the highly effective spinal decompression procedure VAX-D. VAX-D stands for vertebral axial decompression. It is a non-surgical, non-invasive, spinal decompression, medical treatment for a number of low back disc conditions, including herniated, bulging, ruptured discs, degenerative disc disease, annular tears, sciatica, internal disc disruption, and scar tissue.
If you are suffering with low back pain, it is likely in your best interest to learn more about the procedure that is becoming the standard of care for chronic back pain. One of the biggest benefits of VAX-D is that it eliminates pain without surgery. A full VAX-D treatment lasts under an hour, is delivered by someone who has been certified in the delivery of the treatment, and involves a decompression table and a computer. During a treatment, you wear a pelvic girdle, and lay on the VAX-D table. The girdle attaches at the foot of the table, and you hold on to handles at the head of the table. Although it sounds medieval, it is in fact very helpful.
Prior to VAX-D treatment, patients are fitted with a patented ‘pelvic harness’ and are then placed in a prone position on a VAX-D table and console (patients remain fully clothed during treatment). The VAX-D Therapeutic Table and Console technology applies and maintains a baseline tension of 20 to 24 pounds to the patient’s pelvis throughout the treatment session (even when at rest). Distraction cycles then move from the 20 to 24 pound range up to a pre-determined tension based on the patients’ condition.
During treatment, patients utilize handgrips to extend the arms above the head (like hanging from a bar) to stabilize and restrain the upper body during lumbar distraction. The pneumatic-hydraulic cylinders of the Table are used to separate the lower table section from the upper section and apply tension to the patient’s pelvis.
Our tables allow them to lie on their back, for those who have difficulty tolerating on stomach. It is not like traction in that it does not treat patients in the face-up position and does not use a chest harness, which tends to restrict breathing and may interrupt blood-flow return to the heart.
Many patients will notice a benefit early on in the treatment protocol, and as treatment progresses, they will experience a continual reduction of symptomsThe idea behind VAX-D is to treat the spine where usually most of the back pain problems derive from. What VAX-D focuses on is the stretching of the spine and disc decompression. VAX-D produces efficient results on lower back pains, sciatica, failed back syndrome, herniated discs and neck pains.
Additionally, it is helpful to know that the treatment pulls fluid and nutrient cells into the troubled disc, which promotes faster healing.
Rest assured knowing that there have been several clinical studies published on the efficacy of VAX-D treatments. It has been featured in numerous medical journals, in which all report that VAX-D was effective in treating at least 70% of those who underwent the treatments. No other non-surgical procedure has been demonstrated to have this level of effectiveness. Since 1989, VAX-D has been registered as a non-experimental, medical procedure by the Division of Surgical and Rehabilitative Medicine of the FDA.
Awareness of VAX-D has grown rapidly over the years. The VAX-D treatment has been featured on national networks CBS and NBC. Physicians and healthcare providers enthusiastically share the phenomenal results the treatment has achieved. It is no surprise that VAX-D has become the standard of care for chronic low back pain for many physicians.
