I currently receiving Vax-D treatment. This is spinal decompression therapy. I am about 17-18 treatments and I am responding very well. My chronic neck pain (bulging, herniated disc with some degeneration) has gone from a pain level of 8-9 down to 4-5. I am nearly half way through my treatment. I can actually move more freely with an increase of range of motion. I have been suffering for about 8-9 years. Could not bear it any longer and made it my New Year's resolution to do what ever it takes to stop the painful life I was living. Even though my pain is only half of what it was...It is making a huge difference in my life. I am hoping for more improvement as I get closer to completing my treatment. They have estimated about 33 treatments with my case. This is along with chiropactor service. I am going 3 times weekly for 2 months then 2 times weekly for 1 month. I suggest that people with this problem seriously consider this treatment before surgery. It maybe all you need.
