VAX-D TREATMENT
The VAX-D therapeutic Machine (Vertebral Axial Decompression) addresses the functional and mechanical aspects of discogenic pain and disease.

VAX-D Machine was invented by Dr. Allan Dyer, former Deputy Minister of Health from Ontario Canada and a pioneer in the development of the external cardiac defibrillator. The VAX-D Machine is designed to apply distraction tension to the patients lumbar spine without eliciting reflex paravertebral muscle contractions. The patient lies in a prone position, the upper body is over the stationary portion of the VAX-D Machine, and the body is restrained by the patient holding on to adjustable handgrips which can be released at anytime for safety.
The VAX-D Machine is a split table design, whereby distraction tensions are applied to the patient through a pelvic harness attached to a tensionometer and by separation of the movable part of the VAX-D Machine. The distraction-relaxation cycles are automated or variably timed. Distraction tensions and rates are continuously monitored and measured by the tensionometer and the output is shown on a digital gauge and captured on a pen-write printout. The VAX-D Machine exerts its effects through decompression of the intervertebral discs.
VAX-D is a non-invasive treatment for chronic back pain and neck pain from disc and facet joint disease.

VAX-D is an effective and safe procedure without any of the risks associated with surgery, injections, or anesthesia. Time off from work or in recovery is minimal, and resolution of symptoms can be long lasting. A new study published in 2008 showed that patients had significantly improved pain and disability scores at end of treatment, at 30 days and at 180 days post-discharge.
Low back pain has become one of the most significant medical problems in today's world. The statistics on the magnitude of the problem are overwhelming, and the number of chronic back cases continues to grow each day. In fact, low back pain that is related to work is the most common complaint presented to primary care physicians and workers compensation.

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 treatment in the US. Results from all of the independent sources (hospitals, private clinics, clinical studies) show levels of success in the range of 8+ out of 10 people.

VAX-D treatment 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'.
This 'spinal decompression' industry is so full of mis-information, unsubstantiated claims and marketing hype, that it is difficult to find credibility in any of the devices. Many use research done on VAX-D equipment – as though it applies to their device. Manufacturers masquerade articles about 'decompression' as clinical research studies. It is disconcerting that the industry has grown so large, when a search of the medical literature reveals there are no studies published in peer-reviewed medical journals on other devices. Many spinal decompression device manufacturers claim that their device will lower the intradiscal pressure.

To this day, VAX-D is the only device shown in clinical research to decompress the discs to negative levels (Ramos G., Martin W. Journal of Neurosurgery). It makes you wonder how they all make this claim. VAX-D is the only medical device that delivers treatment with the patented logarithmic decompression curve!
