What to expect from IDD Therapy
With IDD Therapy, you will undergo a course of treatment. For some patients, symptomatic relief can come suddenly but, for most, with longer standing conditions, change occurs more progressively. Your supervising clinician will discuss your treatment plan with you.
Pain relief and improved quality of life are the key aspects of treatment. The principal objective of IDD Therapy is to decompress the disc which is causing the Sciatic Nerve entrapment and restore mobility. By progressively improving mobility in the spinal segment over the course of treatment, the body’s natural healing mechanisms can operate more efficiently and the goal of long term pain relief rather than a short term fix can be achieved.
Injections – patients who are considering or are having spinal injections can undergo IDD Therapy. Most spinal injections are intended to relieve pain and create a pain-free window for other treatments. Injections on their own do not address underlying compression and immobility of spinal segments and should be given in combination with structured rehabilitation to address the causes of a condition.
