Would you please define exactly what is done with decompression?

A negative force is applied to the spine and a vaccum is created in the disc allowing for protruding segments to retract, relieving pressure on nerves. Vertebral Axial Decompression or 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 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 todayâ€™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 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 â€˜spinal decompressionâ€™ 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 â€˜vertebral decompressionâ€™.
