IDD Treatment – How we treat back pain

Intervertebral Differential Dynamics (IDD) Therapy is the successful and trusted non-surgical spinal decompression treatment for back pain, neck pain and related conditions such as sciatica.

IDD TherapyMost back and neck conditions can be traced to a specific level in the spine, for example, L5/S1 in the lower back. IDD Therapy can target specific levels of the spine and gently distract (draw apart) individual vertebral segments, taking pressure off the joints, discs and nerves.

Because IDD Therapy is computer-controlled it can sense resistance in the spine (muscle spasm) and adjust the forces slowly and gently to achieve a comfortable and painless stretching of the injured area.

UK clinicians report a good to excellent improvement in 70-80% of their IDD Therapy patients. Moreover, in one study, 86% of IDD Therapy participants experienced a positive outcome with the treatment.

You should consider IDD Therapy if:

  • Your current treatment is not working
  • You want to stop taking painkillers
  • You are seeking long-term pain relief
  • You want to return to normal daily activities
  • You are looking to avoid surgery

IDD Therapy is suitable for the following conditions:

  • Chronic back and neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Referred arm pain (Radiculopathy)
  • Trapped or irritated nerves
  • Bulging, herniated or slipped discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Facet joint disease

What other people say about IDD Therapy

“I suffered for years with three herniated discs which left me in agony, unable to walk and sleep.  After all other treatments failed I found Sports and Spinal Physio who treated me with IDD Therapy.  I finished my treatment programme a couple of months ago and I’m feeling incredible; I’ve got no pain whatsoever and I’m able to walk my dog, drive long distances, ride my motorcycle and sleep without waking at all.

I’m back at work too which means travelling on long-haul flights again.  I can’t explain how thankful I am to the team at Sports and Spinal Physio and IDD Therapy… I’ve truly been given my life back.”    Chris S, Ingrave

About Sports and Spinal Physio

Sports and Spinal Physio provides specialist assessment and treatment of head, neck and back conditions and sports related injuries.

Dan Smith with IDD TherapyOur philosophy is based on a combined approach of hands on therapy and specific exercise rehabilitation with integration of our other clinical services (including IDD Therapy). It is this approach that has enabled many of our patients to recover from their problems and return to work, the sport they love or just back to living their life again.

Dan Smith – Physiotherapist and Lead Clinician

Dan graduated from the University of Liverpool in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physiotherapy and immediately started his career in the NHS. Whilst working for the NHS, he became aware of the disadvantages for patients caused by short appointment times and limited number of sessions available and often felt he was unable to deliver the best care to his patients. As a consequence, he moved into the private sector and over the past 16 years has developed a clinical practice, which represents the ultimate modern physiotherapy service.

As a Physiotherapist Dan has had the opportunity to treat a variety of elite sports men and women including international and premiership football players, elite PGA golfers and Olympic 2012 hopefuls.
