What is IDD Therapy?
IDD Therapy is the successful and trusted non-surgical spinal decompression treatment which is helping chronic back and neck pain sufferers to regain a normal active life. Safe, gentle and non-invasive, IDD Therapy addresses the failings of traditional traction and the natural limitations of what clinicians can do with the hands alone.
The treatment involves the gentle distraction (drawing apart) of targeted spinal segments to remove pressure from spinal structures including the discs and spinal nerves to reduced pain, promote healing and improve mobility. With over 1000 clinics internationally and more and more clinics providing treatment in the UK,
In 2011 our Chigwell clinic, was proud to be the first clinic in Essex, and the 3rd in the UK, to offer IDD Therapy treatment. Following our success in Chigwell, two years later we established the first IDD Therapy clinic in central London. Currently we clinics offering IDD Therapy in Chigwell and Hornchurch.

How does IDD Therapy work?
An Introduction to IDD Therapy
IDD A Patients Story
Do You Suffer With Lower Back Pain, Neck Pain, Sciatica, Slipped Disc or Trapped Nerves?
See How Spineplus IDD Has Helped John!
Having suffered with low back pain and Sciatica for 4 years and despite having tried various other physical therapies, John came to see us at Spine Plus Clinics for a Free Review. His MRI scan revealed, a broad based disc injury (protrusion) at L5/S1 vertebrae that was compromising the left L5 nerve root in his spine. This had been causing him serve pain and discomfort for 4 years. We established a treatment plan with a combination of IDD Therapy, and Medical Acupuncture (Paraspinal dry needling) and core strengthening exercise this is his story.

Computer-controlled treatment at precisely measured angles
These fluids and nutrients help with healing and repair and the gentle, oscillating movement helps the joints to become lubricated and to move more freely.
Where a disc is pressing on a nerve and causing pain, this mobilisation may help the body to retract a bulging disc and thus remove or reduce the pressure and therefore relieve pain.
Our goal is to help the body move freely. Whilst we can do this with our hands most of the time, IDD Therapy gently stretches tight muscles and stiff ligaments in a manner which is not possible with the hands alone.
Working the soft tissues with the SPINA machine helps the body move more freely and as you get more mobility in the spine, this helps the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
Improve joint mobility to free the body's natural healing mechanisms
Each treatment on the SPINA machine lasts approximately 25 minutes; this is the time needed to work the spinal structures adequately to help bring about the physiological changes we are seeking.
Before treatment we apply infrared heat to the area to increase blood flow into the soft tissues. After treatment we apply cold packs to reduce post treatment inflammation and encourage improved collagen formation within healing discs.
