“Before I became a Chiropractor, I knew about back pain from my own experience of it. We help patients at the clinic with a variety of hands-on treatments. But we know that some patients, especially those with disc problems, can struggle to get out of pain and get moving freely again. IDD Therapy Spinal Decompression delivers a targeted treatment which can transform the lives of patients, when they might have felt they had nowhere else to go.”
What is IDD Therapy?
IDD Therapy is the specialist non-surgical spinal decompression treatment which relieves pressure on
targeted spinal discs and gently restores mobility in the affected area.
We have an Accu-SPINA machine which delivers IDD Therapy, the gold standard in spinal decompression
treatment. Patients lie on the Accu-SPINA table. For comfort and safety the table goes from a vertical position to horizontal. Using a system of ergonomic harnesses, the patient is connected to the machine.
IDD Therapy is computer controlled and a treatment programme is set using specific algorithms.
A series of controlled pulling forces are then gently applied at precisely measured angles to decompress and mobilise the targeted spinal segment.
In the lower back this is most commonly the L5S1 or L4L5 levels and in the neck C5C6.
Treatment is suitable for the lower back or neck, it is not used to treat the thoracic spine.
Patients are on the Accu SPINA machine for 25-26 minutes.
By decompressing (taking pressure off) an injured or bulging/ herniated disc and gently stretching the soft tissues, we can improve mobility in the spine and allow the body’s natural healing mechanisms to operate more efficiently.
The goal is to work stiff ligaments and tight muscles, help the body to retract a disc bulge and to help restore what we refer to as the disc pump.
Your First Step – The Consultation
You’ve had pain for more than three months, perhaps you’ve already seen a therapist but it’s not helping or you’ve been considering spinal injections or surgery. To assess whether you’re a candidate for IDD Therapy we offer an Initial Consultation with our Senior Chiropractor and IDD Consultant Ali Elphick. Ali will discuss your reasons for seeking treatment and conduct a thorough examination to determine how IDD or other treatment options might be best for you. There is no obligation to have treatment. At the IDD Therapy Consultation we will provide all the information you need to make an informed decision with a personalised treatment schedule, expectations for improvment and pain relief as well as simple transparent pricing.
