IDD Therapy

Back pain affects nearly everyone at some point during their life. Whilst most back pain resolves itself or with a short course of treatment, for some people back pain can become an unwelcome companion. The Intervertebral Differential Dynamics (IDD) therapy is the non-surgical spinal decompression treatment for people suffering with chronic back pain and neck pain. Treatment works by gently distracting and mobilising targeted spinal segments using a series of carefully controlled oscillatory pulling forces which we call distraction forces. The distraction helps to improve mobility in the painful area and this is important for healing. The IDD Therapy, is currently one of the well sort after alternative to spinal surgery.

As the distraction helps relieve pressure on spinal nerves, the intervertebral disc and facet joints; which are the most likely causes of spinal pain, the oscillation enables patients to adapt to higher pulling forces whilst remaining completely relaxed for the duration of treatment (some patients actually go to sleep during treatment!). Patients safety is paramount with IDD treatment, hence it is equipped with many safety features for complete peace of mind. Treatment lasts for approximately 25 minutes, during which the joint will be fully distracted for 13 minutes.

IDD Therapy is a tool used as part of a complete programme of care. As treatments progress and pain is relieved, you will be shown simple exercises to help condition the body and are advised on lifestyle changes to help get the most from the treatment and achieve lasting pain relief. The number of treatments you require will vary depending on the nature of your condition. Some patients can experience relief within a few treatments, whilst other patients require a course of treatments to give the body time to adapt to changes, heal and strengthen.
