Vax-D for Back Pain in Chicago

VAX-D is a clinical breakthrough in treating neck and back injuries. Some of our clients have even called it miraculous.

Vertebral Axial Decompression (VAX-D) is a non-invasive gentle therapy that uses revolutionary technology and techniques to decompress, or take the pressure off, the discs in your neck and lower back. The result: relief from pain that, in some cases, has existed for years.

VAX-D for your back: What to expect

The VAX-D treatment process for low-back problems is very simple and painless.

A VAX-D certified therapist will fit you with a uniquely designed lumbar support belt. You then lie on the VAX-D table and hold on to a handle or use a support harness – whichever is most comfortable for you.  Your therapist selects the optimal setting, based upon the recommended treatment by your physician – and the magic of VAX-D begins.

The process consists of alternating cycles of decompression and relaxation, lasting about 30 minutes. The result is that the pressure inside the injured disc is dramatically reduced and the healing is well underway.

VAX-D treatments are done in conjunction with physical therapy to support your muscles and help you to stay relaxed. While the treatment is painless, your muscles are working hard to do their job. Physical therapy allows your muscles recuperate.

The first step in all our treatment at American Back Center is a free consultation with our physicians. It involves standard orthopedic exams as well as a detailed accounting of your treatment history and current symptoms.  Based on this consultation, an individualized treatment plan will be created for you. Your visit will be coordinated by our patient advocate and he or she will continue to be available to you throughout your treatment plan.
