IDD Therapy

Do you have persistent back pain or neck pain which is having a negative impact on your life?

If you have been in pain for some time and your condition is making it difficult to go about your normal daily activities, the IDD Therapy Programme at Broad Oaks Health Clinic is designed to help you.

What is IDD Therapy?

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.

Many back pain conditions are located at a particular level in the spine. With IDD Therapy we use computer-controlled pulling forces delivered by the SDS SPINA medical device to gently distract (draw apart) targeted segments of the spine in order to take pressure off specific discs and nerves whilst at the same time, gently stretching tight muscles and stiff ligaments.

By decompressing (taking pressure off) an injured or bulging disc and stretching the soft tissues, we can improve mobility in the spine and allow the body's natural healing mechanisms to operate more efficiently. In so doing, we can relieve pain caused by muscle spasm and alleviate nerve compression and irritation cased by bulging discs.

As clinicians, we can treat most back and neck pain with manual therapies but for some conditions - particularly those which are disc-related - patients need something more to help their condition improve.

Why choose IDD Therapy?

Typical candidates for IDD Therapy are people who have back or neck pain and may have tried various other treatments without success.

They may be taking pain medication and may be considering invasive treatments such as injections or in extreme cases, surgery.

Clinic Director Mark Webb MCSP

We are seeing more and more patients at the clinic with back pain and sciatica. Most respond well to manual therapy and exercise but it has been frustrating not to have been able to help certain patients with longer term issues, particularly disc-related conditions.

Having used traction in my career over the years, the IDD Therapy spinal decompression gives us a far more precise, yet powerful tool to treat targeted spinal segments in a way which manual therapy cannot replicate.

The IDD Therapy programme gives patients a real opportunity to resolve their back and neck problems, before they get to a stage of considering injections or surgery.

Broad Oaks Health Clinic in Solihull is part of a UK network of IDD Therapy providers which includes physiotherapy, osteopathy and chiropractic clinics as well as some hospitals, and over 1,000 providers internationally.
