Spinal Decompression

VAX-D is a non-invasive treatment for acute or chronic back pain and radicular pain and symptoms (leg pain and numbness) from herniated or degenerated discs and posterior facet syndrome. Patients who have had back surgery and continue to have pain (Failed Back Syndrome) may also benefit from VAX-D.

The treatment is an effective, safe and cost-effective procedure without the risks associated with drugs, surgery, injections or anesthesia. VAX-D treatment is backed by years of clinical research studies, and the only decompression treatment that uses the patented smooth logarithmic curve method to distract the spine.


How It Works

VAX-D is a non-invasive treatment for chronic back and neck pain.  It's an effective and safe procedure, without any of the risks associated with surgery, injections, or anesthesia. Recovery time is minimal, and resolution of symptoms can be long lasting.


VAX-D can relieve the pain associated with herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome and radicular (nerve root) pain. Patients can avoid the merry-go-round of drugs and non-specific treatments.

VAX-D clinics have been now been successfully operating for over 15 years in the US, as well as in Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Colombia, Guatemala, Thailand and Australia.  More than 3000 patients a day now receive VAX-D therapy in the US.  Results from all of the independent sources (hospitals, private clinics, clinical studies) show levels of success in the range of 7+ out of 10 people. VAX-D therapy has been used by the best professional sports figures including those in the NBA, NFL, NHL, Olympic athletes and more. Today there is an entire industry of ‘spinal decompression’ devices, all based upon developments pioneered by VAX-D. Prior to the research on negative disc pressures with VAX-D (in 1994), non-surgical decompression did not exist.  VAX-D Medical Technologies patented the process known as ‘vertebral decompression’.
