Spinal Decompression

VAX-D is a non-invasive treatment for acute or chronic back pain, radicular pain, and symptoms (leg pain and numbness) from herniated or degenerated discs and facet syndrome. Patients who have had back surgery and continue to have pain (Failed Back Surgery Syndrome) may also benefit from VAX-D Therapy. VAX-D is an effective and safe procedure without any of the risks associated with surgery, injections, or anesthesia.

People who suffer from severe, chronic pain know how it can utterly disrupt one’s life. Pain can make it hard to enjoy even the simplest daily activities and make it a challenge to carry out exercise routines and other healthy, physical activities. People often live a life of compromise in their activities. Many patients find that as they grow older, episodes of low back pain become more frequent, their pain worsens in intensity, and it takes longer for them to recover. 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 Treatment
VAX-D can relieve the pain associated with herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome and radicular (nerve root) pain.
  • Avoid the merry-go-round of drugs and nonspecific treatments
  • Used by professional athletes in NBA, NFL, NHL, and Olympics
  • Industry of spinal decompression devices created by VAX-D
  • Prior to VAX-D, non-surgical decompression did not exist
  • Patented process of “vertebral decompression”

Unfortunately, the spinal decompression industry is full of misinformation, unsubstantiated claims, and marketing hype. In fact, finding credibility in any of the devices and information supporting such claims is a daunting task in itself. Many use research done on VAX-D equipment, as though it applies to their device.

Spinal Decompression Claims

Manufacturers masquerade articles about “decompression” as clinical research studies, when, in fact, the articles are merely informational posts about care and successful treatments. It is disconcerting that the industry has grown so large, yet a search of the medical literature reveals 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, which provides negative feedback for devices that are actually effective, and four hard facts stand as the foundation to what we hold as clarity of separation between VAX-D and those other devices.

Hard Facts

Clinical Research

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).


The results with VAX-D are factual and based on research (on our product) published in peer-reviewed medical journals.


VAX-D is the only medical device that delivers treatment with the patented logarithmic decompression curve.


Despite what other manufacturers would like you to believe, all decompression devices are not equally effective.
