Freqently Asked Questions
What is VAX-D
VAX-D applies clinically proven principles to relieve pressure on vital structures of the lumbar spine that may be causing low back pain and peripheral pain associated with herniated lumbar discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, nerve compression and posterior facet syndrome. VAX-D is non-surgical and is an inherently safe procedure that is not just aimed at treating symptoms but is designed to alleviate the underlying problems that cause low back pain.
How does VAX-D work to relieve pain and disability?
Is there any evidence that proves there is decompression of interdiscal space during VAX-D?
Where is decompression of the spine the greatest?
What conditions will VAX-D help to improve?
What is the cost of VAX-D and will my insurance cover it?
If you compare the cost of VAX-D to surgery you will find that VAX-D Is less than 20% of the cost. This huge saving does not include other costs that accompany the surgery such as prolonged physical rehabilitation. These savings are appreciated by our patients as well as their insurance companies.
How many treatments will be needed for my condition?
The actual number of sessions depends on the severity of the patient’s underlying condition. For example, patients with herniated discs generally respond within twenty to forty sessions while patients with degenerated discs often achieve significant relief with the same number of sessions but may need ongoing treatment at regular intervals to remain pain free.
On the other hand, patients with posterior facet syndrome usually achieve complete remission with fewer than twenty sessions. The more severe the patient’s overall condition the greater the number of sessions that may be required.
