Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression,
IDD Therapy®


What is it?

IDD Therapy®, also known as Intervertebral Differential Dynamics Therapy, is an advanced spinal rehabilitation treatment. IDD Therapy® treatment is administered using the industry-leading Accu- SPINA® system to gradually and gently alleviate pain caused by a variety of issues, most of which involve injury or compression within the spinal column. Disc degeneration or disc compression - as seen in bulging, slipped, herniated, prolapsed, or ruptured discs - puts pressure on the nerves in the area, which leads to pain that may extend beyond the back and/or to the neck, arms, legs, and extremities. Treatment for this pain oOen involves manual therapies, medication, and sometimes surgery. IDD Therapy® treatment, with its long history of success, offers an excellent alternative to traditional treatment options. Initially developed in conjunc8on with neurosurgeons, IDD Therapy® is used by orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, and other healthcare professionals, who want to provide their patients with a proven, non-surgical option for the resolution of back and neck pain. Moreover, with millions of treatments performed over multiple decades, IDD Therapy® continues to maintain the highest standards with an exemplary safety record and outstanding success rates.

The Goal of IDD Therapy® Treatment

In simplest terms, the goal of treatment is to create space between the vertebrae in order to alleviate pressure on the nerves which cause pain. Unlike other types of generalized spinal treatments, many of which are a form of traction and are forced to treat the entire spine, IDD Therapy® targets only the injured spinal segments. The advanced, computer-directed treatment applies dynamic energy and gentle motion to the specified areas to slowly relieve pressure

What to expect at a session

Each treatment session takes 25-30 minutes. At the start of the session, the treatment table or bed is in a vertical position making it easy for any patient to get onto the table. Next, the treatment table is moved to a flat position and the patient will have 2 stabilization harnesses, pillows, and bolsters adjusted for comfort and safety. The doctor or technician will enter information, which is detailed to meet the specific treatment needs of the patient, into the computer program; and then will start the session. If, for any reason, the patient wishes to stop the treatment, they are able to do so with the safety button they will hold throughout the session. When complete, the table will slowly return to a vertical position.
