Vax-D vs. the DRX 9000
Call (212) 645-8151 for Spinal Decompression in Manhattan
Let me again explain the difference between the DRX spinal decompression and other typical spinal traction units. The DRX is three generations past the initial VAX-D table developed years ago. Actually, the former North American distributor of VAX-D is the present manufacturer of DRX who had requested upgrades to the VAX-D unit but was refused, which explains why the VAX-D hasn’t changed in twenty years. So he and other decompression spinal practitioners brainstormed the problems with VAX-D, and with the help of many engineers, the DRX 9000 unit was developed just a few years ago.

The problems with the VAX-D were numerous:

· non-specific for disc levels with its straight-line traction
· required patients had to hold on with their hands causing severe shoulder/arm problems
· inherent muscular resistance failed to achieve direct or specific decompression of the spinal column
· and the prone position was very uncomfortable for most patients, especially to women.

The DRX engineers solved these problems and improved the outcomes greatly:
· patients are placed supine wearing two harnesses to avoid holding on with their hands and, thus, avoid the muscular resistance found in the VAX-D
· the amount of decompression can be targeted to the specific disc level by varying the angle of traction
· computers automatically gauge the amount of decompression for each patient
· clinical studies have shown the DRX significantly reduces back pain in many patients who complete the program.
