IDD Therapy

Specialist non-invasive treatment in ediburgh for: Herniated Discs, Slipped Discs, Prolapsed Discs, Bulging Discs, Sciatica

There is a variety of terms for spinal disc issues which can contribute to back pain, neck pain or nerve pain such as sciatica.  Many resolve themselves and most can be addressed with hands on treatments and exercise.  However some do not get better and these ones are traditionally the more challenging to resolve.

At MoveFreely, we are passionate about helping people to move with ease and without pain.  If we take care of that for people, the challenges of daily life become much easier.  As part of a UK network of clinics, we use IDD Therapy Disc Treatment as part of a non-invasive programme of care to help people who need more for their pain than manual therapy and exercise alone.

IDD Therapy on the Accu SPINA

IDD Therapy on the Accu SPINA

IDD Therapy is the non-invasive, targeted disc treatment developed to take pressure of the affected disc.  At the same time it gently mobilises the often stiff and painful area with a goal to help restore movement in the affected spinal segments.  And where there is nerve pain such as sciatica or pain in the arms, by carefully improving the spinal function and unloading the disc, we aim to take pressure off nerves which may be causing the pain. 

There are certain disc problems which have traditionally been difficult to address with hands on treatments. Many patients can end up on a vicious cycle of pain and immobility leading to a reliance on pain medication, possibly spinal injections and in some cases surgery. It is important to use non-invasive means to help patients wherever we can and IDD Therapy gives physiotherapists the opportunity to do more for these patients and help them out of pain using conservative means
