What is a Bulging or Herniated Disc?

Our spinal discs – the cushions that sit between the vertebrae of our spine – act like shock absorbers that work tirelessly to keep our spine functioning smoothly. They perform a delicate balancing act, constantly adjusting and readjusting to counteract the pressure and forces we put on our spines every day.

But despite being strong and resilient, they are not invincible. Abnormal stresses, past injuries, or nutritional deficits can lead to structural damage and biological changes in these discs.

Mechanical stresses, when combined with bending forward, lifting and twisting, can weaken the disc’s outer layer, allowing the gel inside to push through, like a squishy stress ball bulging out of its covering, resulting in a bulging, herniated or prolapsed disc.

When this occurs in the neck, it can cause symptoms like arm pain, weakness, or numbness. In the lower spine, this protrusion often leads to sciatica, characterised by sharp pain shooting down the leg, past the knee. Both are due to the irritation or impingement of the nerves by the bulging or herniated disc material and are clear indicators that the affected disc is no longer functioning optimally.

Advances in Treatment for
Bulging and Herniated Discs

It was once thought that damaged spinal discs can’t heal without surgery. But many studies now show that discs can heal, and bulges can reduce naturally. Our bodies possess remarkable healing abilities and emerging evidence suggests that the key to disc healing is creating a more effective environment for recovery. 

If Osteopathy, Physiotherapy or Chiropractic treatment hasn’t worked after about 6 weeks then you need something more. Traditionally this meant Spinal Injections and then Surgery, which due to the greater risks should only be considered as a last resort.

Since 2010 we’ve been pioneering IDD Therapy Spinal Decompression as part of our complete non-surgical treatment programme for disc-related problems, aiding the body’s repair mechanisms without the need for invasive procedures.

Since then, we’ve helped numerous patients get better naturally without needing drugs or surgery.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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 on the specialist IDD machine, which lasts for 25 minutes. This is followed by 15 minutes of cold therapy to reduce the possibility of any inflammation.

The number of IDD Therapy sessions you need all depends on your level of pain and injury. As a rough figure, a full course to treat neck pain is around 10 sessions, and a full course to treat back pain is around 20 sessions.

Our aim is to help you live a life free of back and neck pain, so we’ll recommend the optimal number of treatment sessions to achieve this. Speak to our IDD Therapy specialists to get a better idea of what this looks like for your treatment.

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 a number of weeks.

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.
