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