Our Spinal Decompression Tables:

-The VAX-D Table: VAX-D is short for Vertebral Axial Decompression.

How does VAX-D work? High intradiscal pressures cause discs to bulge out and press painfully on nerve roots. They also make for a compressed, anaerobic environment unsuitable for healing. Decompression produces and sustains negative pressures within the disc, creating a vacuum effect that draws in nutrients and fluids to promote the repair of injured discs and surrounding tissue. This vacuum has also been shown to aid in the retraction of escaped cushioning gel from herniated discs.
