Chronic back pain and in particular disc problems don’t resolve overnight.  They have typically built up over time and therefore need some dedicated care to help the patient go about their daily life without pain, or with as little pain as possible.

The IDD Therapy treatment programme helps deal with the causes of the disc problem, typically the compression of the spinal segment and immobility, in a very safe and gentle manner with very little effort on your part.

A disc problem is usually associated with a particular spinal level.  The discs are given names in relation to the vertebrae (spinal bones) they lie next to.  E.g L5S1, L4L5 (lower back) or C5C6 (neck). 

When a spinal segment becomes stiff and immobile, you end up with the familiar vicious circle of compression and immobility ... of the already injured disc!  

If the disc then presses onto the nerves exiting the spinal column, that can cause nerve compression or irritation leading to shooting pain or dull pains down the leg or arms!

IDD Therapy is the starting point to getting you moving again by targeting and then decompressing the injured spinal segment. 

Developed in part to address the failings of traction IDD Therapy takes pressure off the targeted disc using advanced computer controlled pulling (distraction) forces. 

It then gently mobilises the spinal joint to help it become more mobile and allow the body's natural healing mechanism to operate more efficiently.  In the process this can help take pressure off the nerves and relieve pain.

All the while you as the patient remain fully clothed and completely relaxed.

MRI Scan – An MRI scan helps determine the nature and location of your problem.  If you have an MRI scan , bring it with you.  If you need an MRI, we can help get you one for between £200 and £250.

Vertebral SegmentThe reason we use the SDS SPINA machine to decompress the disc is because it is a physical impossibility to achieve the necessary level of control, strength, accuracy and duration of distraction and mobilisation using our hands, whatever someone may tell you they can do.

IMPORTANT – If you are not suitable for our treatments, we can refer you to an appropriate consultant.  

IDD Therapy is supported by a body of evidence and has been featured in national press and specialist publications such as Spinal Surgery News.
