VAX-D Therapy

VAX-D (vertebral axial decompression) therapy is a type of non-invasive, non-surgical spinal decompression therapy used to treat chronic back pain. It is a patented form of therapy that uses a computer-controlled traction device to gently stretch the spine and relieve pressure on the spinal discs and nerves.

During a VAX-D treatment session, the patient lies down on a specialized table while the device applies a gentle pulling force to the spine. This force creates a negative pressure within the discs, which can help to reposition and realign the discs and reduce pressure on the nerves. The treatment is typically performed over several sessions, with each session lasting between 30 and 45 minutes.

VAX-D therapy is intended for patients with chronic lower back pain due to herniated discs, bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, or other spinal conditions. It is a non-invasive and non-surgical alternative to traditional treatments such as surgery, injections, and pain medications. However, VAX-D therapy is not suitable for everyone, and a consultation with a qualified healthcare provider is necessary to determine if it is an appropriate treatment option for a particular patient.
