Below is an actual patient's initial MRI and post treatment MRI of the lumbar spine. Notice the large paracentral disc herniation in the first picture. This patient was successfully treated with specific spinal rehabilitation (MedX) and non-surgical spinal decompression (VAX-D). There was no surgery performed on this patient.
Spine & Disc is the center of excellence in spine care in Phoenix, AZ, for neck pain and back pain treatment, as well as spinal decompression and physical therapy. VAX-D Spinal Decompression Therapy is effective for chronic lower back pain, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, bulging discs, and sciatic leg pain also known as sciatica. Dr. Blankenbaker (Chiropractic Physician since 1974) was the first in Arizona (1995) to install the VAXD (vertebral axial decompression device) developed by Allan Dyer, M.D., PhD. who is known for his contribution to the heart defibrillator. There are more than 10 research articles published on VAX-D in peer reviewed medical journals. VAX-D is FDA cleared and is the only Spinal Decompression device that holds 3 US patents.
Dr. Blankenbaker was also the first Chiropractor to install the MedX Lumbar and Cervical Extension Machines (1989) in Arizona. These instruments strengthen the muscles that support the spine. Our treatment techniques and physical therapy are for patients who have neck pain and back pain associated with bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica and facet syndrome. There are more than 40 research articles published on MedX in peer reviewed medical journals. VAXD and MedX therapies are safe and effective without the risks associated with spine surgery, epidural injections, or anesthesia. VAXD and MedX are designed to relieve pressure on the discs of the spine that may cause chronic back pain and neck pain. Dr. Blankenbaker’s proprietary method [Spinedex Back System] is recognized and practiced throughout the United States. We welcome you to tour our evidence based medical center.
