KD360 Healing Programs - Spine
KD360 Healing Program for Spine: Our nonsurgical healing program for spine is a safe, nonsurgical, drug free treatment program for patients who suffer from chronic neck or back pain as a result of one or a combination of: herniated or bulging spinal discs, degenerative disc disease, stenosis, degenerative joint disease of the spine (spinal arthritis) and other degenerative conditions. These conditions may result in a combination of pain, numbness, tingling, muscle weakness, balance problems and bowel or bladder issues. As part of our program, if appropriate, we provide spinal decompression therapy. Spinal decompression therapy is a nonsurgical effective approach that slowly and gently stretches and lengthens the spine and releases pressure through computerized repetitive movements of the decompression table. The decompression equipment stretches and releases, resulting in a negative pressure change within the intervertebral disc, nearby soft tissue and spinal joints. The reduction in pressure inside the disc allows the disc bulge or herniation along with the nutrients essential for healing of the disc material to be pulled back into the disc. Rehydration to the disc and structures creates a physiological change which can decrease pain, decrease inflammation and decrease chronic and constant irritation allowing the body’s healing mechanism to do it’s job. Patients typically experience significant improvement within 25 to 35 treatments. Research shows continued improvement is seen up to 4 years following the spinal decompression program.
Our KD360 Healing Program for Spine is appropriate for:
- Bulging, herniated or degenerative discs
- Facet Syndrome
- Degenerative disc disease (DJD)
- Pinched nerves
- Failed back surgery
- Pinched nerves
- Numbness, tingling in hands, feet, arms, legs
- Unresolved chronic neck or back pain
How can KD360 Healing Program for Spine help you?
As the herniated or bulging disc moves out of place, it can compress the nearby structures, including nerves. The compression can block nerve impulses (messages) from the spinal cord and brain (central nervous system) leading to neurological damage and symptoms including pain. As long as the compression continues, the structures (joints, discs and nerves) are not likely to heal and will likely result in a decrease in one’s health and quality of life.
Nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy induces negative intradiscal pressure providing room for the damaged disc to retract and reposition itself. When this occurs, the pressure is relieved on the surrounding structures, tissue and spinal nerves. Reversing the effects of spinal compression can increase circulation which facilitates the influx of nutrients, oxygen and fluids (proteoglycans) into the disc which again supports the body’s healing process. Our spinal decompression program helps the body's built-in natural physiological self-healing mechanism to re-establish itself. All without drugs, injections or surgery. This procedure is 100% noninvasive.

Clinical Studies and Publications
American Journal of Pain Management: Long-term Effect Analysis of IDD Therapy*** in Low Back Pain: A Retrospective Clinical Pilot Study. July 2005. Vol. 15. No 3. C. Norman Shealy, MD, PhD; Nirman Koladia, MD; Merrill M. Wesemann, MD. Outcome: of 24 study participants, each reported consistent pain relief and continual improvement of symptoms one year later. Improvement in pain continued after the treatment sessions were completed.
Practical Pain Management: Technology Review: IDD Therapy* April 2005. Vol. 5, Issue 3. Norman Shealy, MD, PhD. Outcome: The treatment leads to satisfactory pain relief and improved quality of life in up to 88% of patients – many of whom have failed other “conventional” approaches, IDD THERAPY* appears to be the current optimal recommendation for most lumbar pain syndromes.
Anesthesiology News: VAX-D Reduces Chronic Back Pain: A Four Year Outcome Study. March 2003. Vol. 29. R.H. Odell, MD, PhD and D.A. Boudreau, DO. Outcome: VAX-D showed remarkable levls of sustained relief in 23 back pain patients. Average pain levels before treatment: 7.41 out of 8. Immediately after treatment: 3.4`. Four years later: 1.74-Pain relief not only lasted, but improved.
Journal of Neuroimaging: MRI Evidence of Nonsurgical, Mechanical Reduction, Rehydration and Repari of the Herniated Lumbar Disc, April 1998. Vol 8, No 2. Edward L. Eyerman, MD. Outcome: All but 3 of 20 patients reports significant pain relief and complete relief of weakness and immobility, when present. This study also shows a correlation between the improvement on the MRI and the reported improvement in pain.
Journal Of Neurological Research: Vertebral Axial Decompression for Pain Assoc with Hearniated Degen Discs or Facet Syndrome: An Outcome Study. April 1998. Vol. 20, No. 3. E. Gose, PhD; W. Naguszewski, MD; R. Naguszewski, MD. Outcome: pain, activitiy and mobility scores greatly improved for 71% of the 778 patients studied. The authors consider VAX-D* to be a primary modality for low back pain due to lumbar herniations, degenerative disc disease, and facet arthropathy. The authors concluded that post-surgical patients with persistent pain or “Failed Back Syndrome” should try VAX-D before further surgery.
American Journal of Pain Management: Decompression, Reduction, and Stabililzation of the Lumbar Spine: A Cost Effective Treatment for Lumbosacral Pain. April 1997. Vol. 7, No. 2. C. Normal Shealy, MD, PhD; Vera Borgmeyer, RN, MA. Outcome: The authors compared the pain-relieving results of traditional mechanical traction (14 patients) with a decompression device (25 patients). The decompression system gave “good” to “excellent” relief in 86% of patients with ruptured discs and 75% of those with facet arthrosis. The traction yielded no “good” to “excellent” results with ruptured discs and only 50% “good” to “excellent” results in patients with facet arthrosis.
