I just wrote a couple articles on VAX-D. This recent technology, developed 15 years ago, decompresses the spine through a process that creates a vacuum in the vertebrae that pulls-in, by the suction of a temporarily created vacuum, of the soft tissue of a herniated disc. This essentially means that the spinal vertebrae are pulled apart until herniated discs are sucked back in to their proper position. While this may sound slightly extreme, it certainly seems preferable to invasive surgery.
