IDD Therapy can help when manual therapy alone is insufficient to achieve lasting pain relief
Is IDD Therapy for you?
It’s suitable for adults of all ages. Perhaps you may have tried other treatments without success and are considering invasive options such as steroid injections or even disc surgery? You should consider IDD Therapy if:
Gillian Brown. Osteopath and Co-owner of Harpenden Sports + Spinal:
“We wanted the IDD Therapy treatment because it enables us to help patients who are often stuck. With IDD Therapy, we now have a tool which enables us to do far more for our patients, with the aim to help them avoid going down the surgery route.”

How IDD Therapy Works
IDD Therapy uses an Accu SPINA machine to target treatment at specific spinal segments, safely and gently. It works by taking pressure off spinal discs. These may be “bulging” or “herniated” and be pressing on nerves, causing pain.
Many back pain conditions are located at a particular level in the spine. With IDD Therapy, computer-controlled pulling forces gently distract (draw apart) targeted segments of the spine taking pressure off specific discs and nerves. This also gently stretches tight muscles and stiff ligaments.
By decompressing (taking pressure off) an injured or bulging disc and stretching the soft tissues, mobility in the spine can be improved and the body’s natural healing mechanisms can operate more efficiently. This can relieve pain caused by muscle spasm, and alleviate nerve compression and irritation caused by bulging discs.
