What is DRX9000c and how does it work?

Vax-D short for Vertebral Axial Decompression , is a non-surgical therapy proven to be as much as 88% successful at treating chronic low back pain and sciatica, caused by bulging, herniated or degenerative discs. Vax-d treatment is able to reduce the pressure in the spinal disc, allowing fluids and nutrients to re-enter the disc, reducing swelling and relieving pressure on pinched nerve.

Will DRX9000c help a slipped disc?

Yes, unless you have fixed surgical hardware used to fuse the spine. Clinical studies show that Vax-D provides relief for patients who have had one or more surgeries. Vax-D is also used as a maintenance program after surgery.

If I have had back surgery, can I still have DRX9000c?

Some difficult cases needs additional sessions.

Will Vax-D help a slipped disc?

Is Vax-D better than surgery?

Yes. In most cases Vax-D is better than surgery. Surgery alters the spine by removing all or part of problematic disc. Although, this can reduce the pressure on the nerve and relieve leg or back pain, the surgery tends to place more stress on healthy disc below and above. Surgery can have severe complications.

Are there any reasons that I can not go on Vax-D?

Individuals that have conditions such as: Tumors, fractures, advanced osteoporosis( which can be ruled out with plain X-ray) or pregnant.

How much does Vax-D cost, and will my health insurance cover it?

If Vax-D works so well, how come I have not heard more about it?

DRX9000c is a relatively new medical procedure in the United States. The therapy has worked for thousands of patients worldwide. The awareness of DRX9000c is growing every day, as physicians and health care providers learn about DRX9000c and the phenomenal results it has achieved in numerous clinical studies. As a result, DRX9000c is now becoming the standard of care for chronic low back pain.

How is Vax-D different from traction or the other treatment claiming to decompress the spine?

Traction is not decompression. With traction, weights are added one by one to the end of the traction bed which, in turn, adds tension to a harness secured around the spine. The intention is to reduce pressure but the force of this traction can produce spasming which may lead to greater injury.

Why should I consider Vax-D therapy?

Vax-D therapy in non-invasive and without the risks and complecations associated with surgeries, injections and anesthesia. Vax-D is painless and patients can remain at light duty work while taking treatment. Vax-D is also easy and convenient. Sessions last about 45 minutes a day for 15-20 days. It’s that easy.
