IDD Therapy® Treatment


What is IDD Therapy® Treatment?

Intervertebral Differential Dynamics (IDD) Therapy is an advanced, computer-assisted technique for spinal decompression, aimed at relieving pain by expanding the space between specific vertebrae. This method addresses issues stemming from compressed discs, such as bulging, slipped, ruptured, prolapsed, or herniated discs, which can lead to discomfort not only in the neck and back but also in the arms, legs, and other parts of the body.

What sets IDD Therapy apart from other decompression therapy methods?

IDD Therapy® distinguishes itself by applying dynamic energy at varying intensities along the spine, facilitating gentle mobilization during the treatment to alleviate pressure. This approach makes IDD Therapy a superior option for treating a range of conditions, including bulging and herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and sciatica, thereby offering an enhanced solution for most lower back pain causes.

The exclusive use of the Accu-SPINA® system for administering IDD Therapy underscores its uniqueness. Developed collaboratively by neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, and other healthcare experts, this system aims at the non-surgical relief of back and neck pain. With decades of application and millions of treatments performed, IDD Therapy boasts an exceptional safety record and impressive success rates, underscoring its effectiveness and reliability in pain management.

Exploring the Healing Process: The Mechanisms of IDD Therapy® on Spinal Health

IDD Therapy® allows practitioners to precisely target the affected area of the spine, employing gentle, oscillating movements to mobilize the joint and ease muscle spasms. This narrative illustrates the therapy’s effectiveness, particularly in treating a herniated disc, where disc material extends beyond its normal boundary, potentially pinching nerves or causing discomfort.

Through IDD Therapy®, each session aims to expand the space between vertebrae and discs, mitigating disc pressure. This process encourages the absorption of essential fluids, blood, and nutrients, promoting cellular repair and disc revitalization. Over time, this can lead to the reduction or even resolution of the disc protrusion.

With continued treatment, the healing of tissues is fostered, disc height is restored, and spinal flexibility is regained. As the spine’s condition improves, optimal spinal function is reestablished, leading to significant pain relief and enhanced quality of life.

What sets IDD Therapy apart as significantly more successful than traditional spinal decompression therapy?

Leveraging advancements in technology and biomechanics, our innovative treatment allows healthcare providers to precisely focus on specific spinal segments, both in the lumbar and cervical regions. This method gently expands the space within the vertebrae around a damaged disc. The Accu-SPINA® system’s ability to alternate between active and passive tensions facilitates a progressive process of neuromuscular re-education for the spine and its adjacent tissues. This process effectively decompresses and rehydrates the disc.

Technically speaking, the treatment lowers the intradiscal pressure from positive to negative, encouraging the absorption of water, oxygen, and nutrients into the disc area, thereby fostering disc health improvement.

The Accu-SPINA® system ensures that IDD Therapy® provides an efficient and straightforward physical therapy experience for patients. Our commitment to excellence is underscored by our continuous assessment and integration of the latest technological and medical innovations into the Accu-SPINA system, ensuring superior patient outcomes through the ongoing enhancement of our approach.

What objectives does the treatment aim to achieve?

IDD Therapy is administered using the Accu-SPINA®, a class II medical device approved by the FDA, designed with three primary objectives:


Enhance the well-being of the intervertebral disc


Restore and instruct the surrounding soft tissues


Correct the alignment of spinal components

How does undergoing IDD Therapy® for disc treatment feel?

During an IDD Therapy® session, you might notice a gentle stretching sensation or the feeling of the bed moving beneath you, often bringing an immediate sense of relief to the painful area. It’s common for some individuals to see a quick improvement following the initial treatment, while others may temporarily experience a resurgence or slight increase in their pre-treatment pain levels. This reaction can arise as the spinal structures adjust to newfound mobility.

Similar to adapting to a new exercise routine, any initial discomfort typically diminishes after more sessions, and the periods of pain relief extend progressively longer—even as you resume or increase physical activities at home. Discover more about what to expect during a treatment session.
