Wellness begins with treating the problem, not the symptoms.

VAX-D Therapy offers a first choice, non-interventional therapy for patients with disabling low back pain.  VAX-D Therapy is designed to relieve pressure on structures that may be causing low back and peripheral radicular pain associated with herniated lumbar discs, degenerated disc disease, sciatica nerve compression, and posterior facet syndrome.

What is VAX-D Therapy and is it right for you?


VAX-D stands for Vertebral Axial Decompression.  This is a breakthrough for the treatment of disabling low back pain and sciatica caused by degenerated and herniated disc disease.  VAX-D is a patented technology that gently stretches the spine and decompresses discs. Pressures in the lower lumber spine can be as high as +180 mm of mercury during many common daily activities. VAX-D Treatment is able to reduce the pressure in the lumbar spine down to levels of –180 mm of mercury, allowing fluids and nutrients to re-enter the disc; reducing swelling and relieving the pressure on pinched nerves. In short, VAX-D breaks the cycle of pain caused by bulging and degenerated discs and helps the body heal itself.
This therapy is an inherently safe procedure that is not just aimed at treating symptoms but is designed to alleviate the underlying problems that cause low back pain.  Patients are treated fully clothed and are fitted with a harness that fits around their pelvis as they lie face down on a motorized Table. A Certified VAX-D technician operates the table from a computerized console. Each treatment takes about 45 minutes. Most patients find VAX-D to be comfortable and relief of pain can usually be noticed in the first few sessions.
