VAX-D Therapy is an Alternative to Surgery

You don't have to live in debilitating pain. Whether you have lower back pain, a pinched nerve, sciatica, or a variety of symptoms related to damaged or degenerative discs, as well as syndromes of the lumbar spine, decompression therapy may be for you.

This gentle, non-surgical therapy can provide lower back pain relief, sciatica pain relief, and is a state-of-the-art therapy for bulging or degenerative disc disease of the lumbar spine.

The gentle distractive forces of the VAX-D therapy create a decompression of the spine with unloading due to distraction and proper positioning, to improve blood flow and nutrient exchange to the injured area. You will experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation, which is repeated over a period of 30 minutes.

A complete program targeting the function of the stabilization muscles is a vital part of VAX-D Therapy. Exercise and adjunctive therapies such as heat, muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and cold therapy can assist in rehabilitation of these structures. Our goal is to not only help heal the disc, but to also enhance muscular control and support of the back.

Regular home exercise and periodic visits to our office will help in maintaining your spinal health and reduce the probability of reoccurrence. Clinical results of this type of therapy have been effective in over 75% of the patients treated and most patients find long-term relief or effective management of their pain when they complete the entire program of treatments utilizing the VAX-D Spinal Decompression Therapy.
