In keeping with our tradition of introducing new and effective treatments we were the first Clinic in the Country to introduce IDD Therapy® which has been in America for some 10 years and has helped many tens of thousands of patients get relief from the pain and discomfort of a slipped disc and from degenerative disc disease which has not responded to other therapies. Many have been able to avoid spinal surgery and gone on to live normal pain free lives after being a patient on the IDD programme.
IDD Therapy® is a safe and effective way of targeted distraction of the vertebrae on either side of the offending disc. This allows a change in the pressure within the disc and gradually allows the disc material to slowly be reabsorbed back into the disc reducing nerve compression and bringing about much needed relief. IDD therapy can be successfully used in the treatment of both neck (cervical) and lower back (lumbar) conditions. Chronic symptoms with radiating pain to the lower limbs may require between 15 – 20 sessions to achieve optimal results.
After the IDD Therapy® is complete, we recommend a session with one of our physiotherapist or sports therapists to test your range of movement, screen for abnormal movement patterns and try to encourage a normal function in walking, bending etc. This can help in the prevention of future spinal problems.
This treatment is not suitable for all conditions, please contact us to discuss if this treatment would be suitable for you.
