Hi again everyone.

I am just wondering what if anything anyone knows about a treatment called VAX-D??? Seems a number of people here at work have tried this for disc hernias. I have difficulty in seeing how exactly this works and am a little concerned about even trying it. I asked my orthopaedic surgeon who is looking after my current problem and he said it is very similar to just strengthening exercises. What information can any of you offer on this???

Thank you,

Sponsors Lightbulb

Re: Vax-d????

I had a chiropractor who specializes in back problems say that vax-d would do little to help and could cause more problems. Further, he says that any help you do get would be temporary and thinks burning your money would be just about as productive.

Just something I read.

Re: Vax-d????

I hope that you feel better from your spondi.

I am considering the VAX D too. COuld you tell me how was your step dad when he finally ended the treatment? I am considering this option. but it is quite expensive (1900 euros in Madrid, Spain) so i would definitely like to look for real opinions before getting into this.

Thanks a lot!
