'Spinal decompression' is a therapy that seems really interesting to me. I've been seeing infomercials about it for years, and it sounds great - completely non-invasive. It decompresses the spine and allows problems to heal naturally.
I just wonder if the treatment is covered by most people's medical insurance.
I googled for Vax-D, and this is one link that came up.http://americanbackcenter.org/?gclid...FRFYYQodK0SnRQ
VAX-D is at the core of our program for treating severe low back conditions like herniated, bulging, slipped and degenerated discs, facet syndrome, sciatica, and spinal arthritis.
VAX-D is state-of-the-art spinal decompression. It is a non-surgical, non-invasive, and non-chiropractic medical protocol that decompresses lumbar discs and enables them to heal. It has been approved by the FDA since 1989, and its efficacy is backed by eight (8) research studies published in peer-reviewed, medical journals. At the American Back Center we have been successfully treating patients suffering from low back conditions with VAX-D since 1993.
If anyone has experience with this treatment, or knows someone who has, I'd certainly be interested in hearing how well it worked, how many treatments were required, and how much it cost. Thanks.
Wrt chiropractic adjustments, I think they can be very helpful. When I used to go - after a car accident - they'd put me on traction using weights to stretch out my spine for 10-15 minutes, and then the chiropractor would adjust my neck and back.
After several of these treatments, I remember walking through the parking lot to get to my car, and suddenly my nasal passages cleared and were completely open. I don't think I'd ever breathed so well and clearly in my entire life. I had no idea that nasal congestion might be caused by a pinched nerve, so this experience was pretty eye-opening.
