Avoid Disc Surgery and Injections with IDD Therapy. IDD Therapy is a non-invasive treatment tool which relieves pressure, and restores mobility, in targeted spinal segments using computer controlled forces. We can use IDD Therapy to optimise disc health, and restore function, by enabling the body’s natural healing mechanisms to operate more efficiently. It can be used to treat a number of disc related conditions including bulges, herniation and degenerative changes.
IDD Therapy has been shown in several studies to be highly effective in reducing the pain that is sometimes associated with these changes, especially in patients who have responded poorly to other conservative treatments such as usual physiotherapy, and are resigning themselves to injections or surgery. IDD Therapy can help improve the quality of disc, and other soft tissues in the spine, that can otherwise lead to a more sensitive nervous system and ultimately to pain felt around the back and neck. This can really help improve patient’s pain and function and facilitate a return to Physiotherapy and especially the more active based treatment that we associate with longer lasting improvements in spinal health. Our Disc Clinic is committed to helping you break the pain cycle, helping to keep you active, feel positive, sleep better and stay healthy.
There are a number of commonly used terms used in describing disc pathology, many of which are inaccurate and potentially misleading. At any given time, many of us without back pain are walking around with disc abnormalities, even bulges or herniation. Not all disc pathology results in pain and, in most cases, symptoms settle with a short period of rest and Physiotherapy. However there are times where pain associated with disc pathology persists. This can be due to a number of factors such as ongoing issues with movement quality, poor postural habits, stress and anxiety culminating in avoidance of normal movement and function. Evidence indicates that, in such instances, conservative measures alone tend to be less effective and a more comprehensive programme of targeted disc treatment, education and progressive reintroduction of exercise form a long term model for reducing pain and restoring normal function again.
