IS IT RIGHT FOR ME vertebral axial decompression?

You may BE a candidate for nonsurgical Vertebral Axial Decompression (VAD), if:

+ You have chronic pain or serious back caused by bulging or herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and / or facet syndrome.


+ Lumbar surgery syndrome failed.


+ It has been considered and proposed surgery.


You can NOT BE a candidate for VAD if:

+ Has undergone back surgery fixing his vertebrae with titanium rods that are connected together, spinal fusion.


+ You have been diagnosed with clinically unstable back (spondylolisthesis).


+ He has suffered from abnormal spinal infections, or pelvic or abdominal cancer.


+ He has suffered a recent vertebral fracture.


+ If you suffer from severe osteoporosis (DEXA T - 2.5 points or less).


+ You have ankylosing spondylitis.


+ Have an abdominal aortic aneurysm.


+ If you are pregnant.

When can I expect results?

Many patients achieved a reduction in pain after the first treatment sessions. It's a great sign that has the VAD, but scientific reality is that the healing process is not finished or completed. Leave early treatment regime usually results in a relapse of symptoms as well as the loss of time and money.


On the other hand, it requires several sessions before a noticeable remission of symptoms are experienced. Why is this? Bulging and herniated discs may need several sessions to fully regain their position based on their physiology. You can be sure that your column responds to the vacuum effect of the VAD, but the results are not always immediate.


Respect the number of sessions is extremely effective in eliminating back pain.

VAD works, now is the time.

In herniated discs and degenerates, the nucleus pulposus can be partially or fully retracted back into the disc after the first session (usually it takes longer), so relief is noticed. This reduction of pain does not indicate a full recovery, it is essential to complete treatment to prevent a relapse. This means serve a maximum of 20 sessions complete treatment. In older people or the most serious may require more sessions. As with all wounds, tears in the disc wall need time to heal. The absence of pain does not mean that the tears disappear forever.


We must prevent the nucleus pulposus, recently retracted, move and put pressure again on the nerves, therefore it must complete all sessions. Consequently, if you want to achieve a successful recovery, patients should contribute to adopt changes in lifestyle that promote the health of the spine and postural education classes.
