With the goal of relieving back pain, spinal decompression treatment incorporates a motorized device to stretch the spine, releasing the pressure on intervertebral discs. Chiropractors and other health professionals have applied similar treatments using spinal traction for many years, with the goal of encouraging herniated or bulging discs to realign. In turn, discs are in a better position to receive oxygen and nutrients that are needed to heal. Without question, spinal decompression treatments are a welcome therapy for those hoping to avoid surgery.

Today, IDD Therapy (Intervertebral Differential Dynamics Therapy) treatment, using the SPINA System, is the latest form of spinal decompression that assumes a complete disc therapy approach. Designed by multiple specialists, IDD Therapy is administered using a computer-applied regimen where specific segments of the spine are manipulated according to the needs of the patient. Compressed spinal segments are unloaded, while a cyclical waveform generates a pumping effect that restores the flow of oxygen to the affected disc. Furthermore, a second modality is applied called oscillation, and this releases pressure on the surrounding muscle tissues that have become rigid.

IDD Therapy – Relief for Neck and Back Pain

IDD Therapy as provided using the SPINA System, is an FDA-approved treatment for pain and discomfort for neck and back pain associated with herniated discs, degenerative disc disease and facet syndrome. Even so, a number of other symptoms and conditions have been treated successfully through the Spina System program. This includes nerve compression, cervical and lumbar disorders or strains, sciatica, injury to the cervical or lumbar nerve root, arthritis in the spine, joint disease, myofascitis syndrome, piriformis syndrome, muscle atrophy, acute cervical or lumbar pain and post-operative neck and back pain.

As a specialized treatment, IDD Therapy is an exciting and revolutionary approach to many debilitating neck and back problems. The staff at Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness value IDD Therapy as a customized, non-surgical option for patients that is safe, comfortable and relaxing.
