Results: Dramatic Results Without Surgery

Below are the pre- and post-MRIs of a 21-year old female patient who spent two and a half years severely disabled with chronic back pain due to a workout injury. Physical therapy, pain medications, muscle relaxants, chiropractic care, and acupuncture provided no relief. Traction provided through her HMO resulted in severe pain and further injury from the reflex spasm often produced by the linear force of traction.* Although surgery was strongly advised, the patient refused. The constant, agonizing pain caused her to become unable to take care of herself, depressed, and unable to socialize, and she exhibited an altered gait contributing to acquired scoliosis.

Diagnosis and Treatment Plan
The patient presented Corespine Institute of West Hills, California with an MRI showing a herniated disc at L4–L5, a degenerative disc at L5–S1, and straightening of the spine due to spasm. The Corespine staff implemented a treatment plan of six weeks of 30-minute VAX-D treatments as well as their own tailor-made exercise program.

Within six weeks, pain free and with an almost normal
range of motion, the patient was able to make her
long-awaited trip to Europe for the summer. One year
later, she remains 100% pain free.

   I was very cynical that VAX-D would help me. Within a matter of weeks, however, I was out of excruciating pain and I had my life back again. It still upsets me that I had to suffer for two and a half years before finding treatment that actually worked. I can’t say enough about the caring professionalism of the Corespine staff. The treatment was painless and I’ve remained pain-free now for over a year.
