How does IDD Therapy work?

Many back pain conditions are located at a particular level in the spine. IDD Therapy uses computer controlled pulling forces delivered by the Accu SPINA medical device to gently distract (draw apart) targeted segments of the spine in order to take pressure off specific discs and relieve muscle spasm.

By decompressing (taking pressure off) an injured or bulging disc and stretching the soft tissues, IDD Therapy aims to improve mobility in the spine and allow the body’s natural healing mechanisms to operate more efficiently. In so doing, it can relieve pain caused by muscle spasm and alleviate nerve compression and irritation caused by bulging intervertebral discs.
