Benefits of VAX-D
The effectiveness of the VAX-D Treatment has been the subject of published clinical studies which highlight the following benefits achieved in the majority of patients:
- Relief of acute or chronic (long term) low back pain and/or associated leg pain or numbness, generally within 1 month
- Early return to work
- Non-invasive and nearly always safe
- No patient hospitalization
How is VAX-D Treatment Applied?
Patients with low back pain are first examined and then evaluated in accordance with the indications for VAX-D Treatment. Patient medical histories, X-rays and CT/MRI scans are carefully reviewed to determine whether the individual patient qualifies for the procedure. If a patient qualifies for VAX-D Treatment, an individual treatment plan (usually consisting of 20+ treatment sessions) is developed to meet their specific needs.
Each session begins by fitting the patient with a patented pelvic harness designed to achieve optimal decompression of the lumbar spine. The patient lies fully dressed on the VAX-D® device and is properly positioned by a trained VAX-D technician to maximize comfort and safety.
The controls and settings are adjusted in accordance with the individual patient’s treatment plan, and the procedure commences. The VAX-D device then applies precisely controlled tension along the axis of the spinal column to distract the vertebral segments and posterior facets of the lumbar spine and decompress the inter-vertebral discs.
Each distraction cycle, lasting 60 seconds, is followed by a relaxation cycle of similar duration.
