What is VAX-D® Treatment?

VAX-D® is a non-surgical treatment developed for the management of disabling low back pain.

VAX-D® Treatment is designed to relieve pressure on structures that may be causing low back pain. It relieves the pain associated with herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome and radicular pain.

VAX-D® achieves its effects through decompression of intervertebral discs and facet joints, that is, unloading due to distraction and positioning on the VAX-D® Table.

Intrasiscal pressure

Much like gauging the air pressure in a car tile, scientists have been able to use pressure sensors to measure the various pressures put on spinal discs while lifting, standing, sitting, lying down, undergoing traction, and undergoing VAX-D® trerapy. Like other pressures found in the body such as blood pressure, intradiscal pressure is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg).

High intradiscal pressures cause discs to bulge out and press painfully on nerve roots. It has been clinically proven that AX-D® creates a vacuum of negative pressures as low as -160 mmHg within the injured disc during the treatment session. This repositions the disc, taking pressure off of spinal nerve roots, which helps to reduce or eliminate back and sciatica pain.

Vax-D treatment
This breakthrough was developed by Dr. Allen Dyer, former Deputy Minister of Health who pioneered research on the heart defibrillator used around the world. 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.

All treatments are administered with patients fully clothed. However, two-piece clothing, that separates at the waist and can be loosened at the wrists, is the most comfortable.

The VAX-D® Treatment Table is protected by patents issued in the U.S. and Internationally.
