IDD Therapy Spinal Decompression

Do you suffer with sciatica, herniated (slipped) disc or trapped nerves?

If you have had pain or neck pain for some time and your condition is making it difficult to go about your normal daily activities, the IDD Therapy Programme at The Ashleigh Clinic is designed to help you.


What is IDD Therapy?

Intervertebral Differential Dynamics (IDD) Therapy is the successful and trusted non-surgical spinal decompression treatment for back pain, neck pain and related conditions such as sciatica.

Many back pain conditions are located at a particular level in the spine. With IDD Therapy we use computer-controlled pulling forces delivered by the SDS SPINA medical device to gently distract (draw apart) targeted segments of the spine in order to take pressure off specific discs and nerves whilst at the same time, gently stretching tight muscles and stiff ligaments.


By decompressing (taking pressure off) an injured or bulging disc and stretching the soft tissues, we can improve mobility in the spine and allow the body’s natural healing mechanisms to operate more efficiently. 

In so doing, we can relieve pain caused by muscle spasm and alleviate nerve compression and irritation cased by bulging discs.

As clinicians, we can treat most back and neck pain with manual therapies but for some conditions - particularly those which are disc-related - patients need something more to help their condition improve.

Why choose IDD Therapy?

  • Current treatment is not working
  • Want to stop taking painkillers
  • Seeking long-term pain relief
  • Want to return to normal daily activities

Typical candidates for IDD Therapy are people who have back or neck pain and may have tried various other treatments without success. 

They may be taking pain medication and may be considering invasive treatments such as injections or in extreme cases, surgery.

The Clinic Director:  Craig Mortimer

“IDD Therapy is able to do so much more for my chronic back and neck pain patients as it targets specific spinal segments where discs are herniated (‘slipped’) - in a manner not possible with manual therapy and exercise or traditional traction.

In the past, this type of chronic back pain patient would probably resort to invasive procedures - even surgery in some cases.  Now, IDD Therapy is there as an effective non-invasive option for them.

Having tried the treatment for myself and spoken to other UK clinicians, I’m very excited for my patients to experience the excellent outcomes which I know are possible with the treatment.”

The Ashleigh Clinic is part of a UK network of IDD Therapy providers which includes physiotherapy, osteopathy and chiropractic clinics as well as some hospitals, and over 1,000 providers internationally.
