Who can IDD Therapy help?
Most patients we see for IDD Therapy typically have chronic back pain, neck pain or leg pain, usually with an underlying Slipped Disc problem. By “chronic” we mean they have been experiencing pain for more than three months.
They will often be suffering from shooting pains down the arm or leg, caused by a Slipped Disc pressing on or irritating a nerve as it exits the spine. The most common nerve pain caused by a Slipped Disc is Sciatica (nerve pain which travels down the sciatic nerve through the buttocks and legs and sometimes into the foot causing pins and needles or numbness). Similarly, nerve entrapments in the neck caused by Slipped Discs will cause symptoms in the arm and hand.
When pain is not resolving and manual therapy is not working, IDD Therapy helps to bridge the treatment gap. Rather than live in pain, or consider pain management, spinal injections or in extreme cases surgery, patients can undergo non-invasive, effective treatment.
