Are there any age restrictions?
Treatment is suitable for patients over the age of 18. This is when growth plates are fully formed. There is no upper age limit although we will assess suitability for treatment on an individual basis.
Will I need a course of treatment?
Yes. Patients have a programme of treatment. We divide the programme into stages of adaptation and progression. Spinal issues that have built up over time leave spinal segments stiff and immobile. Muscles and ligaments which have become weak and inflexible need time to adapt as treatment
How long is treatment?
You will be in the clinic for up to one hour. Treatment begins with ten minutes of deep penetrating heat to warm tissues. You are on the IDD Therapy machine for twenty-six minutes and we cool the affected area for ten minutes after treatment.
How much is IDD Therapy?
Treatment forms part of a programme and is charged from £70 per treatment. Patients have the option to pay for the programme in one or two stages. Our programme includes 4 Physiotherapy Rehab sessions at no extra cost. IDD is far cheaper than more invasive Spinal Injections or Surgery.
Will the effects of treatment last?
The treatment programme is designed to put patients onto a path of long term healing. As we progressively restore spinal function, the body’s natural healing mechanisms can operate and maintain the spine and this is the route to long term pain relief.
What is the difference between IDD Therapy and traditional traction?
IDD therapy was developed to address the failings of traditional traction to treat targeted spinal segments. Whereas traction delivered a general pulling force to the spine, IDD Therapy is able to focus distraction or pulling forces to a specific level of the spine. Many problems are located at specific levels and the ability of IDD to focus treatment at the effected level is what separates IDD from traction. It also combines the pulling force with a gentle mobilisation, all part of a process to restore function and allow the body’s natural healing mechanisms to operate.
How long has been IDD Therapy been used?
IDD Therapy was developed in the early 2000s. It was developed in America and is now provided at a national network of independent clinics in the UK as well as in countries around the world. There are more than 2,000 Accu SPINA systems in use globally.
