However, non-surgical spinal decompression gained notoriety in the early 1990’s with the advent of VAX-D, a mechanical traction device controlled by an on board computer which precisely targets the force and angle of disc distraction. With the advent of VAX-D, back pain sufferers now have a better than 70% chance of resuming a normal life without the risks, complications, and inconveniences caused by surgery.
VAX-D is a non-invasive treatment that involves the alternate stretching and relaxing of the spine, releasing pressure from cushion discs and vertebral bones that commonly cause low back pain. Typically administered in 45 minute sessions, the patient is strapped face down on table, gripping to hand holds. The table separates, creating a stretch in the lower back. If the patient feels uncomfortable at any point, they can end the session by simply releasing the handgrips.
VAX-D is FDA approved and has been a common tool among chiropractors for over two decades.
