What is IDD Therapy?

IDD Therapy is an innovative, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment that offers a new approach to treating sciatica and chronic disc-related issues, eliminating the need for injections or surgery.

Developed in the USA by neurosurgeons, IDD targets low back pain, neck pain, nerve pain, and sciatica caused by disc problems like bulging discs, degeneration, or facet joint inflammation.

It’s particularly effective for patients with spinal disc damage unresponsive to manual therapy, providing an alternative to spinal injections or surgery.

How Does IDD Therapy Work?

IDD Therapy uses advanced computer engineering to target damaged regions of your spine in your lower back and in your neck.

Through precision and controlled movements, the procedure gently and painlessly decompresses the affected spinal segment, releasing pressure on your discs, relieving trapped nerves, thereby reducing your pain and relaxing muscle spasms.

Our Results...

We Have 30+ Years Experience Helping Patients Like Julia Overcome their Pain and Get Back to Normal Life.

At 36 years old, Julia was suffering from crippling sciatic leg pain. She came to us because nothing else was working, and she was told she needed urgent surgery. Julia was very scared, and wanted a second opinion.

We identified an extremely large disc bulge in her lower back, and started her on a course of IDD Therapy to decompress her disc.

AFTER

*As with any medical procedure results will vary from person to person and cannot be guaranteed

After six weeks of IDD Therapy, combined with rehabilitative exercise, her crippling leg pain was gone completely. Her disc prolapse had all but disappeared, and she was back to enjoying the active, pain-free life she remembered.

And, years later, she still is.

While every patient story is unique, Julia’s results aren’t. Hear directly from some more of our happy patients whose lives our IDD Therapy has transformed…

Frequently Asked Questions

Intervertebral Differential Dynamics (IDD) Therapy has emerged as a credible, safe, and effective alternative to surgery for various conditions including low back pain, neck pain, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and facet syndrome. Clinical studies have shown that as many as 92% of patients, who were initially considered for surgery, were able to successfully avoid it due to the significant, long-term improvements in their symptoms following IDD Therapy​ 2​.

At our clinic, these positive findings are mirrored in our patient outcomes. 

IDD Therapy treats damaged discs in the lower back (lumbar spine) – most commonly the L4/L5 or L5/S1 level – and in the neck (cervical spine) which are C5/C6/C7. It is not used to treat the thoracic (mid) spine. 

Patients have a series of treatments typically spread over 4 to 6 weeks.  This is to allow time for the body to adapt to treatment with a goal of progressively improving spine function.  Whilst symptomatic relief can be experienced in the early stages of treatment, the body does not adjust overnight where chronic conditions have built up over time. The exact number of treatments depends on the nature of your condition and how you progress with treatment, but as a guide, most neck problems will require 10 treatments and low back problems 20 treatments. To ensure that your spine is working optimally so that your condition doesn’t recur, a specialised physio rehabilitation course will run alongside your IDD sessions.

Our IDD Therapy programme is priced between £1190 and £1995, depending on each individual’s specific needs. This comprehensive programme includes targeted decompression, custom-tailored physiotherapy, and extensive rehabilitation to ensure the best possible recovery and prevention of future issues.

We believe in complete transparency with our pricing to ensure you can make informed decisions without any surprises. We provide all cost information upfront, so you know exactly what to expect.

Additionally, we offer flexible finance options, allowing you to spread the cost over up to five years, making it easier to manage your investment in your health.

Each IDD treatment lasts for approximately one hour. Your session will begin with 15 minutes of heat therapy, using a TherMedic belt, to warm the tissues and get blood flow into the injured area. You’ll then progress to your IDD Therapy session on the Accu-SPINA® machine, which lasts for 25 minutes. This is followed by 15 minutes of cold therapy to reduce the possibility of any inflammation.

All chronic pain conditions are different. Some patients start seeing relief from pain symptoms in just a few sessions, but for most, you’ll typically start to see an improvement in your condition in the 2nd or 3rd week of treatment.

No, it doesn’t hurt. IDD Therapy is a safe, gentle procedure, and our patients feel relaxed during treatment. In fact, many of our patients have fallen asleep while undergoing their treatment. Some patients may experience a temporary soreness after their treatment session—this is much like post-exercise, and is just a sign that your muscles have been working in a new way. We finish each treatment session with cold therapy to help reduce discomfort.

After decades of use, and millions of treatments, IDD Therapy has maintained an exemplary safety record.

Yes you will. IDD Therapy targets the specific part of the spine that’s damaged, which is why an MRI is needed to confirm our diagnosis and whether IDD Therapy is the right choice for your specific condition or if another treatment would be better. If you’ve had an MRI in the past 6 to 8 months, you won’t need a new one. If you don’t have one, we’ll arrange a fast and affordable private referral for you.

Patients who have had surgery can have treatment, provided that the procedure was not within the previous six months (to allow for complete healing) and there are no surgical implants.

Your GP or consultant may refer you on to us for IDD Therapy, but as we’re primary care providers, you don’t actually need a referral to book in with us

At this time, IDD Therapy treatment is not yet available on the NHS. It is available privately across a network of osteopathy, chiropractic and physiotherapy clinics. It is anticipated that IDD Therapy will be available through the National Health Service at some point in the future. Globally, there are over 1000 IDD Therapy providers.
