Want to know if IDD Therapy is the right solution for your pain?
Frustrated with your pain? Not sure what to do or who to ask?
An intervertebral disc is the spongy shock absorbing tissue between the bones in your spine.
What is commonly known as a 'slipped disc' is more accurately described as a herniated or prolapsed disc, when the central tissue for the disc (the nucleus) breaks through the outer casing of the disc (the annulus) causing herniation.
This can cause the following symptoms:
Degeneration or wear and tear can happen in the spine as we get older, particularly in people with manual jobs. This causes the discs in our spine to thin and dehydrate, making them more vulnerable to injury from normal everyday movements, bending or lifting.
Injury to a disc in the spine is often caused by trauma, commonly in the form of heavy lifting. The force of lifting a heavy object can cause damage to the outer casing of the disc, resulting in a sudden shape change, also known as a bulging or slipped disc.
There is some evidence to suggest that you can inherit a predisposition to develop back pain. You may be more likely to suffer a disc injury if your parents or siblings have also experienced a disc injury.

By decompressing (taking pressure off) a slipped or bulging disc and stretching the soft tissues, mobility in the spine can be improved. This can relieve pain caused by muscle spasm, and alleviate nerve compression and irritation caused by herniated or prolapsed discs.
IDD Therapy targets the specific area of your spine that is causing the pain using our highly accurate Accu Spina machine.
The gentle decompression force is also a precisely calculated proportion of your body weight and is therefore specifically tailored to you.
Each session of decompression force is gently increased. This treatment progressively decompresses your spine allowing your range of movement to improve, so you can get back to doing normal things.
Patients do not typically feel any pain during treatment. The treatment itself is actually quite gentle, it is not unusual for people to fall asleep during their decompression treatment.
The decompression pulling force used is set at a precise proportion of your body weight. This means it is specific to you and therefore unlikely to cause any pain or discomfort.
The decompression forces used are built up slowly and gradually during the course of your treatment, depending on your history and how you are responding to treatment.
After your treatment, we apply a cold compress to the area, this helps to reduce any soreness after the treatment. Some patients do report soreness similar to what you would expect after having hands on treatment, such as massage, but this generally gets less intense as the treatment course progresses.
Every case of back pain is different but typically takes place over a 4/6 week period. This allows time for the body to adapt with the goal of gently improving and restoring normal spinal function.
The exact number of treatments required will depend on your specific condition and how your body responds to the decompression therapy.
While relief from pain can be experienced in the early stages of treatment, the body does not adjust over night, especially when chronic conditions may have built up over a long period of time.

What Our Patients Say About IDD Therapy:
Colin, Hertfordshire: "IDD Therapy was my last resort after over a year of excruciating leg and back pain. The pain was affecting both my work and sleep, making me feel depressed. I found the treatment very relaxing and even fell asleep during treatments. It has been life-changing and after 15 sessions I am now pain free. I would highly recommend to you if you have sciatica"
Monica, Hertfordshire: "After 2 years of not being able to compete at my favourite sport, tennis, I have finally found a treatment that is getting me active again. Gillian Brown at Sportsnspinal in Harpenden recommended this brilliant method of traction using the latest technology called IDD. It's helping release the pressure on my lower back discs and the results are phenomenal. I've gone from being scared to run to competing at international level in a year. I get to lie down on the machine for 26 mins of chill time while it works its magic. No regrets here"
John Coleman, Harpenden: "I have been extremely pleased with my IDD Therapy Disc Treatment. The way it targets the problem areas has significantly improved my back. I felt better after 3 sessions and carried on improving over the 8 sessions to the point that I am now essentially pain free."
" I found it extremely comfortable . . . I would certainly recommend it"
