Procedure of Spinal Decompression
Pressure can build up inside your spinal discs over time. If it’s prolonged or has increased pressure on the disc, it can cause a herniation or prolapsed disc and leads the disc material to spill out.
The displaced material can again cause pressure on your nerves and other structures causing pain. It can radiate down into the buttocks, toes, legs, and spine, causing a loss of feeling or numbness and lead to dysfunction.
The VAX-D is made to specially target the cervical and lumbar spine. It applies a gentle yet effective distraction to the vertebrae below or above the injured or diseased disc.
The objectives of this revolutionary procedure are to reduce the pressure inside your spinal disc, and increase blood, nutrients, and water pushing it into the discs. In addition, it strengthens the ligaments that hold the disc material in place to prevent the problem to reoccur.
Our professionals are committed to providing you with personalized care and attention to details. For this reason, we perform a thorough and complete initial history, conduct a physical evaluation, and review your recent MRIs or X-rays. We collect this information to determine if you are eligible for the spinal decompression therapy.
