The story of one of our patients of IDD Therapy has been featured in the National Newspaper the Express.
While searching online for an alternative treatment he stumbled across intervertebral differential dynamics (IDD) therapy. Relatively new to the UK, IDD is suitable for those with unresolved chronic back pain, neck pain and sciatica as well as leg or arm pain caused by irritation to spinal nerves, diagnosed via an MRI.
It is offered in 17 private clinics across the UK and costs £70-£90 per hour. It is not yet available on the NHS.
Craig had a consultation with osteopath and IDD specialist Sally Lansdale who has been practising the therapy for four years at her central London-based clinic [Spinex Disc Clinic, NW1 5AW].
The therapy is delivered via a mechanical, computer-controlled stretching machine. Patients lie fully clothed on a treatment bed while gentle pulling forces draw apart specific spinal segments where discs are damaged, taking pressure off any trapped nerves and encouraging movement in the spine.
