Want to know if IDD Therapy is the right solution for your pain?
Frustrated with your pain? Not sure what to do or who to ask?
An intervertebral disc is the spongy shock absorbing tissue between the bones in your spine.
What is commonly known as a 'slipped disc' is more accurately described as a herniated or prolapsed disc, when the central tissue for the disc (the nucleus) breaks through the outer casing of the disc (the annulus) causing herniation.
This can cause the following symptoms:
Degeneration or wear and tear can happen in the spine as we get older, particularly in people with manual jobs. This causes the discs in our spine to thin and dehydrate, making them more vulnerable to injury from normal everyday movements, bending or lifting.
Injury to a disc in the spine is often caused by trauma, commonly in the form of heavy lifting. The force of lifting a heavy object can cause damage to the outer casing of the disc, resulting in a sudden shape change, also known as a bulging or slipped disc.
There is some evidence to suggest that you can inherit a predisposition to develop back pain. You may be more likely to suffer a disc injury if your parents or siblings have also experienced a disc injury.
You should consider IDD Therapy if:
The video below will explain how IDD Therapy, a safe and gentle approach to back and neck pain, has helped 1000s of people in the UK break free from a cycle of painkillers and get back to normal life.
A Safe and Trusted Approach to Degenerative disc disease, Spinal Stenosis and Back Pain
Intervertebral Differential Dynamics (IDD) Therapy is a successful and trusted non surgical spinal decompression treatment for back pain, neck pain and related problems such as sciatica.
It is particularly useful to sufferers of:
IDD Therapy is a targeted treatment used by clinicians to relieve pressure on specific spinal discs whilst gently restoring mobility.
Patients lie comfortably on the Accu SPINA machine. Using ergonomic harnesses to connect the patient to the machine, computer-controlled pulling forces are applied at measured angles to treat the affected spinal segement.
By decompressing (taking pressure off) an injured or bulging/herniated disc and stretching the soft tissues, we can improve mobility in the spine and allow the body’s natural healing mechanisms to operate more efficiently.
Patients lie on the Accu SPINA for 25 minutes, soft music is played and many IDD patients go to sleep.
Treatment is combined with other modalities including gentle exercises and manual therapy where necessary. The key point about IDD Therapy is that it is not possible to deliver such a treatment with the hands or old fashioned equipment.
So for those patients in pain who need something more for their condition, IDD Therapy is an excellent option since it is non-invasive and can help patients avoid surgery.
Patients do not typically feel any pain during treatment. The treatment itself is actually quite gentle, it is not unusual for people to fall asleep during their decompression treatment.
The decompression pulling force used is set at a precise proportion of your body weight. This means it is specific to you and therefore unlikely to cause any pain or discomfort.
The decompression forces used are built up slowly and gradually during the course of your treatment, depending on your history and how you are responding to treatment.
After your treatment, we apply a cold compress to the area, this helps to reduce any soreness after the treatment. Some patients do report soreness similar to what you would expect after having hands on treatment, such as massage, but this generally gets less intense as the treatment course progresses.
Every case of back pain is different but typically takes place over a 6 to 8 week period. This allows time for the body to adapt with the goal of gently improving and restoring normal spinal function.
The exact number of treatments required will depend on your specific condition and how your body responds to the decompression therapy.
While relief from pain can be experienced in the early stages of treatment, the body does not adjust over night, especially when chronic conditions may have built up over a long period of time.
Typical candidates for IDD Therapy are people who have back or neck pain and may have tried various other treatments without success. They may be taking pain medication and may be considering invasive treatments such as injections or in extreme cases, surgery.
