NBC News’, Health Watch, segment on VAX-D Therapy
What is VAX-D?
VAX-D stands for Vertebral Axial Decompression and it is the ultimate breakthrough solution for chronic neck and back pain.
VAX-D Therapy has given us the opportunity to effectively treat and provide relief for:
- Herniated or Degenerated Discs
- Facet Syndrome
- Failed Back Surgery
- Peripheral Neuropathy (when the cause is found to be from compressed discs and nerves)
VAX-D is a non-invasive treatment designed to alleviate the pain of impinged nerves, and/or disc and joint pain. When there is pressure on the spine, pain can be extreme and constant. It can cause bulging discs, degeneration of discs, and pinched nerves. VAX-D Therapy allows us to relieve this pressure.
VAX-D, also known as Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression, is the original and only medical device that delivers treatment with its patented decompression system. This treatment has been in the USA since 1995 and is the only equipment proven to lower disc pressures, creating a “vacuum” in the disc. This vacuum gently pulls the disc back into place and also pulls healing nutrients into the disc for recovery.
Other “decompression treatments” simply do not have published clinical studies proving they can lower pressure inside the disc.
Research to develop the treatment was conducted over a period of six years with the combined efforts of physicians, engineers, and technicians at major teaching hospitals. There are 9 Medical Peer-Reviewed and Published Studies on VAX-D therapy.
The procedure is simple. The patient lies down on the VAX-D table and a harness is attached around their pelvis or neck. The computerized table then gently and slowly stretches the back or neck relieving the pressure on the spine, providing pain relief for the patient.
