How IDD Therapy Works

IDD therapy is a non-invasive and effective solution for those suffering from disc pain. It works by gently and precisely decompressing the affected discs in the spine. This process helps to relieve pressure, increase circulation and promote the healing of damaged tissues.

During IDD therapy, the patient is comfortably positioned on a specialised table. The table then moves the spine through a series of precisely controlled movements. These movements are designed to target the specific discs that are causing pain.

The decompression process creates a vacuum effect, which helps to separate the disc, providing space for the bulging or herniated material to retract. This process can significantly relieve pain, increase mobility and improve function.

IDD therapy is a safe and effective alternative to surgery. It is suitable for a wide range of disc-related conditions, such as herniated, bulging or degenerative discs, spinal stenosis and sciatica.

Overall, IDD therapy is a new, unique, and exciting solution for people suffering from disc pain, providing an easy pathway to a pain-free life.

Head Therapist Daniel cassells

“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”
