Spinal Decompression for Naples Residents


Why VAX-D Spinal Decompression Works!!

VAX-D Spinal Decompression is an effective spinal rehabilitation program for conditions of the spine. The program consists of an FDA cleared non-surgical spinal decompression therapy focused on decompressing the discs. Pain relief is thought to result from lowering the pressure on the discs, allowing areas of bulging and herniated disc material to be drawn back into place.

As the ligaments that hold disc material in place become stretched or torn due to bulging and herniation, decompression is believed to assist the ligament bands that hold the disc material in place to heal, preventing future recurrence.
  • Degenerated Discs
  • Bulged Disks
  • Sciatica
  • Back Pain

Reverse High Intra-Disc Pressure

Over time as we age and as we sustain injuries, pressure can build up inside the vertebral disc, causing the disc to bulge. With increasing or prolonged pressure, a disc can rupture or herniate.

The bulging disc material puts pressure on the nerves and other structures and can cause pain or other nerve symptoms. This pain can travel into the buttocks and down the legs/arms or into the toes/fingers. Pressure on nerves can lead to numbness or problems with movement.

Common Questions

What are my chances for success?
Non-Surgical VAX-D Spinal Decompression has had great success with patients suffering from herniated intervertebral discs. It's even greater for other conditions. At Hiler Chiropractic we have an excellent success rate because we only accept patients who we truly believe we can help.
What kind of conditions does the Decompression program treat?
Disc problems of multiple varieties as bulging discs, degenerated discs, herniated discs or ruptured and protruding discs of the cervical (neck) and lumbar (low back) spine, as well as joint arthrosis, facet syndrome, sciatica, mild spondylolisthesis and stenosis. We have two units to meet the growing needs of the community.
Patient Evaluation
The doctor will conduct a thorough initial history, perform a physical evaluation, review all data and combine it with any complexities involved. They use the information to make decisions to be certain the patient qualifies for the decompression procedure.
What is the difference between VAX-D Spinal Decompression & Traction?
VAX-D Spinal Decompression is a much more sophisticated technology which overcomes the body's resistance to traction. In terms of herniated/bulging ... Read more
What is the cost for the decompression therapy?
Good news! The cost is reasonable and we provide everyone the opportunity to receive decompression therapy. We've eliminated the worry of finances by offering generous discounts on pre-payment, no-interest and flexible payment plans and we also offer ... Read more

Our Comprehensive Program Helps Ensure the Permanency of Your Decompression Results

Med-X “Boot Camp” Back Strengthening Program
We offer a follow-up physical therapy program designed to stabilize and strengthen the core muscles of the spine to relieve and prevent back pain recurrence after you have completed a course of non-surgical spinal decompression therapy.

Studies reveal that the muscles of the back called the “multifidi” atrophy in 80% of patients with back pain.
Our Med-X Back Pain Relief Program is intended for patients to strengthen and maintain the spinal muscles after decompression therapy for the disc(s) is completed in order to promote long-term stabilization of the discs.
What Makes It Unique?
The Med-X Program is different from conventional physical therapy. It is not intended to stretch or limber up muscles, rather it is an intensive program which targets specific back muscles weakened from disuse and puts them through an isolated workout. We consider it a “boot camp” approach to strengthen muscles of the back and the approach makes a real difference.

Research has shown that people with back pain have a tendency to “favor” the weakened muscles and recruit other surrounding muscles to compensate. The favored, pampered or unused muscles begin to atrophy within two (2) days. This makes them more vulnerable to further weakness and injury, exacerbates back pain and triggers a self-perpetuating chronic cycle of muscle deconditioning.

After the disc undergoes decompression, the involved, weakened back muscles must be identified, isolated and then exercised to build up the muscles of the spinal column. This is critical to aid in healing and maintaining a healthy spine.

A regular exercise routine will not isolate the back muscles sufficiently. Regular exercise allows other non-weakened muscles to be recruited to do the work of the weaker muscles of the spine, overlooking the disused muscles.

For maximum results, you must use specifically designed core and back exercise equipment that allows specific spinal muscles to work by blocking out other recruiting muscles in order to target and isolate the weakened muscles of the spine.

Spinal Longevity Program

After completing a course of decompression therapy at Hiler Chiropractic, it's now time to ensure that you maintain the maximum, long-term benefits from your treatment and reduce the risk of recurrence. Once your tissues reach the final remodeling stage of healing, which helps form the final matrix of the newly regenerated tissues, you'll want to ensure that the benefits will continue.
Why Do I Need the Spine Longevity Program?
Quite simply, to ensure that you live the rest of your life free from back pain and avoid recurrence. In the medical profession, it's termed maintenance. We've put our own twist on it and call it our Spine Longevity Program.

The way to minimize the risk of having a recurrence of your back pain is to maintain the strength of the spinal column musculature. This is accomplished by maintaining spinal muscle strength through a scheduled care plan of maintenance, specifically our Spine Longevity Program.

We encourage our patients to play an active role in living their lives pain-free and extending the longevity of their spine by enrolling in our routine exercise program for the extensor muscles of the spine. Without maintenance, most patients spinal muscles will weaken, become vulnerable to further weakness, re-injury and muscle deconditioning.
What Makes the Spine Longevity Program Unique?
We employ specialized machines, not found in gyms, that specifically target vital, but hard-to-activate muscle groups. You also have to stabilize the pelvis through the use of a special machine as well. Exercise machines found at the gym may not target these vital muscle groups since larger, stronger muscles tend to be activated by these more common machines. These specialized exercises have been found to increase bone mineral density in those over age 50, helping to ameliorate osteoporosis.

We focus on our patients literally to help them get their backs back. We're confident our Spine Longevity program is perfect for maintaining the strength of your spine muscles with ease and in the comfort of a physician supervised environment. We promise to be the best physicians we can to make your maintenance scheduled visits as much of a fun experience as we can. It's maximum results in the most convenient setting and we're sure you'll enjoy the experience and the rest of your life.
