VAX-D Has anyone tried this

I went to a back pain institute that preforms this procedure, however it is not covered by insurance and is quite expensive. I was wondering if anyone has tried this, and what the results were. I have bulging disks at L4-L5 & L5 S1 and I can hardly tolerate the pain in my back and hips. Anyone else having this problem? My MRI says mild everything, but I'm in major pain. Don't understand why? Please share info. Thanks

Re: VAX-D Has anyone tried this

Insurance company suggested I try this before surgery 8 years ago. On the table about 4 months into it I had an incredible pain in my legs, found out another disc ruptured. (3 disc levels) Don't know if it was because of the VAX-d as much as I probably wasn't a good candidate for that procedure. The ortho warned me but the HMO wouldn't approve epidural or surgery until the VAX-D. Now, I've had 4 major surgeries since. I know people that it did work for. Buyer beware i guess
