Naples and Fort Myers Florida
Voted #1 VAX-D in Naples. Is a patented non-surgical therapy developed for chronic low back pain and sciatica.
VAX-D Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical option to treat chronic lower back pain, sciatica, and neck pain. Collier Chiropractic & Accident Rehabilitation Center has been Voted #1 for VAX-D treatment in Naples. Our treatment is safe and effective without any of the risks associated with surgery, injections or anesthesia.
VAX-D Spinal Decompression is non-invasive, meaning you don’t have to be concerned with the risks, pain, and complications associated with surgical options, injections, and anesthesia. Before beginning VAX-D patients are required to complete a MRI scan to determine that no serious conditions are a determining factor. The treatment plan lasts 30 days, and each session lasts around 30 – 40 minutes. VAX-D can be performed while you are in a comfortable position, reducing continued pain. Each session is billed directly to your insurance provider and is Medicare friendly.
Spinal decompression treatment reduces the pressure in your spinal discs which, in turn, relieves the stress on the pinched, inflamed nerves in your spine. During treatment your spine is gently stretched and the discs are decompressed. As the disc is repositioned the pressure is released from the nerves. VAX-D Spinal Decompression ends the pain of bulging disks, sciatica, and other chronic neck and back pain without the need for surgery. Let your body heal naturally with VAX-D Spinal Decompression.
When you choose surgery to treat your chronic back pain your surgeon will relieve the pressure on your spine through decompression. The goal of surgery is the same as VAX-D treatment, but without the dangers associated with a medical operation.
Traction devices stretch the lower back, but they do not possess the ability to decompress cervical and lumbar discs. They have also not been able to reduce spinal nerve compression.
Traction can’t address the reason for spinal pain, VAX-D can. Spinal disc pressure can be as high as +180mm of mercury. With treatment that pressure can be reduced to -160 mm of mercury. VAX-D reduces the disc pressure to negative levels, and negative pressure leads to negative pain.
VAX-D, therefore, unlike popular though relatively ineffective traction devices, more precisely addresses the reason for spinal pain. Although traction devices can stretch the lower back, they have not demonstrated the ability to decompress the lumbar and cervical discs or reduce spinal nerve compression. VAX-D works by reducing the pressure within the discs, not to zero, but to negative levels! No other device has been shown to reduce the disc pressure to these desired negative levels. It is this negative pressure that causes the disc bulging or herniation to decrease in severity. This in turn reduces pressure on the spinal nerves, which ultimately leads to less or no pain.
Outcomes after a Prone Lumbar Traction Protocol for Patients with Activity-Limiting Low Back Pain: A Prospective Case Series Study, Archives of Physical Medicine. Paul F. Beattie, PhD, PT, OCS, Roger M. Nelson, PhD, PT, Lori A. Michener, PhD, PT, ATC, SCS, Joseph Cammarate, DC, Jonathan Donley, DPT. Outcome: On the 180-day follow-up, paients reported signifigantly improved pain after 16 to 24 daily VAX-D treatment sessions.
Short and Long-term outcomes Following Treatment with the VAX-D Protocol for Patients with Chronic, Activity-Limiting Low Back Pain. P.F. Beattie, PT, PhD, OCS; R. Nelson, MS, PhD; J. Cammarotta, BS, DC; J. Donelly. Outcome: Signifigant improvements were reported in a sample of 118 patients with unfavorable prognosis due to chronic low back pain.
A Prospective Randomized Controlled Study of VAX-D and TENS for the Treatment of Chronic Low Back Pain. Eugene Sherry, MD, FRACS; Peter Kitchener, MD, FRANZCR; Russell Smart, MB, ChB. Outcome: VAX-D treatment obtained a statistically signifiigant reduction in pain and improvement in functional outcome in patients with disc-related chronic low back pain. TENS treatment recorded 0% improvement, while VAX-D treatment yielded a success rate of 68.4%.
Effects of VAX-D on Intradiscal Pressure. Gustavoo Ramos, MD; William Martin, MD. Outcome: VAX-D creates a negarice intradiscal pressure force as low as -160 mm Hg.
Many VAX-D patients report feeling better during their first several treatment sessions. As treatment continues our patients experience a gradual reduction in symptoms.
Numerous clinical studies have proven that VAX-D Spinal Decompression Therapy is safe and effective, and 3000+ patients are treated daily. These studies have also shown reduced pain and an increase in mobility as a result of non-invasive VAX-D treatment. VAX-D is an easy and painless alternative to spinal surgery.
