What Can I Expect?

Getting Started

Your doctor will recommend an X-ray or MRI to pinpoint the specific areas of damage and discomfort.  Using this information, your doctor will determine your course of therapy and whether you are a candidate for VAX-D.

At the beginning of each session, you will be comfortably fitted with VAX-D’s patented pelvis harness shown in clinical studies to achieve optimal decompression of the lumbar spine.  Patients may choose to receive their treatment lying face-down or on their back.  Face-down is generally the ideal position, as it allows gravity to assist in the re-positioning of herniated disc material.

The Pressure Is Off!

During VAX-D treatments, you will probably notice a slow lengthening of your spine as your discs are gradually decompressed and relieved of pressure.  This process of decompression is safe and painless.  While some patients with extensive injuries may report mild discomfort during the first few treatment sessions, their discomfort should subside upon subsequent visits.  Release of optional hand grips, or use of an emergency stop button allow you to stop at any point.

Keeping Comfort a High Priority

For face-down treatments, a quiet fan in the base of a memory foam pillow supplies a gentle breeze, keeping your face cool with plenty of fresh air to breathe.  Some patients prefer to be treated while lying on their back. This treatment position is usually a choice for individuals with respiratory problems and other health issues that make it uncomfortable to lie face-down for long periods.

Biofeedback for Better Results

VAX-D’s computerized biofeedback mechanism takes multiple samples of the tension being applied to the spine many times per second during VAX-D therapy.  The tension is then automatically adjusted according to the specific responses of each patient, resulting in a highly personalized treatment.  The process is fully automated and all treatment information is displayed for the technician.  Settings are adjusted according to teach patient’s unique treatment plan.

What's In A Typical Treatment Regimen?

A typical VAX-D treatment regiment consists of 20-25 total sessions, each lasting up to 45 minutes.  Some conditions may require fewer visits while some occasionally may require more, depending on your doctor’s recommendation.

Many patients report relief from their pain and other symptoms during the first few treatment sessions, and most experience dramatic pain relief after completion of their prescribed VAX-D therapy program.

VAX-D—not to be confused with linear traction—lengthens and decompresses the spine.  High intradiscal pressures are reversed, achieving negative pressures via a patented slow ramp-up process.  Negative pressure creates a vacuum inside the discs, which not only takes pressure off of pinched nerves, but helps to re-position bulging discs and pull extruded disc material back into place.

Spinal experts surmise that nutrients, oxygen, and fluids are drawn into the disc, stimulating the body’s repair mechanism to provide the building blocks necessary to mend injured discs.  VAX-D’s process is the only patented treatment clinically proven to decrease disc pressures to the negative levels needed to facilitate healing!

Over a series of relaxing treatment sessions, patients experience powerful pain reduction and healing.  Some even notice an improvement in their symptoms after the first few treatments!

Leading physicians in orthopedic medicine, pain medicine, neurology, and other specialties, in hundreds of clinics around the world currently utilize VAX-D’s patented technology. Many doctors choose VAX-D over other devices because it employs the original, patented technology from which non-surgical spinal decompression therapy was born.  VAX-D makes a commitment to back pain sufferers to offer an honest product backed by clinical research.  VAX-D gives you real science with real results.

VAX-D: Published Credibility

The definitive reference textbook on “The Practice of Minimally Invasive Techniques,” published by the College of Physicians Publishing Division, has an editorial board comprised of several world-renowned orthopedic surgeons.

Chapter 35 of the 2005 edition of this text focuses exclusively on VAX-D.  The summary concludes that, “VAX-D should not be considered traction in the traditional sense but as decompression.  VAX-D is the only non-invasive treatment that has been proven to decompress the disc; with other traction devices, there has been only indirect proof.”

I injured my back lifting a suitcase and initially found brief relief with traction exercises. Persistent pain led me to reveal a herniated L5-S1 disc. Starting VAX-D treatment immediately, my pain dropped significantly after the first session. A month into treatment, I traveled abroad for a semester, enduring a long flight and extensive walking across Europe pain-free, thanks to VAX-D and Dr. Pete.

Very friendly staff! Jennifer is very welcoming and efficient at the front desk. Then April, the doctors assistant is always friendly, no matter how busy she is. She knows her stuff and makes you feel comfortable throughout your treatment and checks on you to make sure all is well the whole time . Dr. Peduzzi is very knowledgeable, professional and he has helped me with my neck problems. He has me well in the way to recovery.

Extremely friendly staff, including the front desk and the chiro assistant. Polite, welcoming and they care about their patients. Dr. Peduzzi is very thorough when explaining any type of treatment. He makes sure that each patient is well taken care of. The other thing I love is that the practice strives to use all natural products when it comes to their supplements, creams, and sprays. Thank you for the amazing care.

Even though I have only been going to Dr. Peduzzi for a few weeks, I am so much better. They pain was just awful from disc compression. I could not get in or out of bed for weeks. I am out of the recliner and back to bed at night without the lightning bolt pain I had. I look forward to each treatment because it is relaxing and it is working.
