FAQ Vax-D (Vertebral Axial Decompression)

What Is VAX-D?

VAX-D (aka Spinal Decompression) is a new computerized treatment for chronic neck pain, low back pain and sciatica. The treatment is safe and effective without the risks of injections, anesthesia or surgery.

It is the first patented FDA registered computerized spinal decompression treatment in the world. It corrects herniated, bulging, and degenerative discs in the cervical and lumbar spines. It has been effective for sciatica and radicular symptoms in the extremities.

Chronic pain is one of the most debilitating health conditions. Studies show that back and neck pain is often recurrent even if the original problem resolves, many patients suffer chronic symptoms at intervals. Chronic pain sufferers often live a life of compromise in their daily activities.

VAX-D treatment is designed to correct the pressure on the structures that may be causing chronic spinal pain. It can correct the pain associated with herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and sciatica.

Can VAX-D work for you?

Our office utilizes The Genesis system, which provides relief for patients suffering from the common causes of low back pain, neck pain and leg pain. VAX-D is the only back treatment device that has been shown to decrease the disc pressure in clinical research.

Many patients experience a relief of their pain and other symptoms during the treatment sessions, and then a gradual reduction in symptoms as treatment progresses.

The treatment consists of about 20 daily sessions of 45 minutes each on the system. Dr. Pollack can determine your course of therapy and whether or not you are a candidate for treatment.

Patients with certain conditions such as tumors, bone fractures, or severe osteoporosis are not candidates for this therapy. Patients that have had back surgery and continue to have pain may also be treated (Failed Back Syndrome).

Why is VAX-D effective?

VAX-D distracts the spine, taking the pressure off the discs and spinal nerves, and allows the back to heal itself.

Here at Pollack Health and Wellness, we use a system that uses the latest technology available. The system can be programmed to apply tension while following the natural curvatures of the spine.

About VAX-D Therapy

Patients find the treatment to be comfortable and relaxing. All treatments are administered with the patients completely and fully clothed. Clothing that separates at the waist and that can be loosened at the wrists and neck is the most comfortable.

Many patients are not satisfied with the effectiveness of the treatment choices offered like drug therapy, chiropractic, physical therapy, exercise, acupuncture, injections and surgery choose VAX-D as an effective alternative.

If you are suffering with chronic pain, VAX-D may be the answer you have been looking for.
