Q: How does IDD Therapy® Work?
A: IDD Therapy® provides a computer directed method of applying and achieving physical therapy treatment objectives without requiring the patient to participate in any exhaustive or painful exercise regimen. It is performed by a certified clinician. The IDD Therapy® device gently manipulates the offending spinal segment, while helping stretch and re-tone underlying musculature. The result is improved lumbar health and pain elimination in about 86% of patients treated.
Q: If I use IDD Therapy®, when will I start feeling better?
A: Many patients start feeling improvement by the second week of the treatment.
Q: Are there any side effects to the treatments?
A: Most patients do not experience any adverse side effects from undergoing IDD Therapy®. Occasionally, a few patients experience muscle spasm for a limited time.
Q: Are there any drugs used in the treatment?
A: Although drug therapy is not a mainstay of IDD Therapy®, some clinicians advocate the use of anti-inflammatory medications and muscle relaxants.
Q: How long does it take to complete the treatment?
A: Each treatment session lasts approximately 30 minutes and is repeated approximately 24 times over the course of 35 days. The number of sessions depends on the severity of the problem.
Q: How successful is IDD Therapy®?
A: IDD Therapy® has undergone extensive clinical testing and has achieved success rates as high as 86%. Thousands of satisfied patients have been successfully treated with IDD Therapy®.
Q: Does IDD Therapy® involve surgery or injections?
A: No. IDD Therapy® is completely non-invasive, is non-surgical and involves no injections. Not only is IDD Therapy® safe and painless, it's also comfortable and relaxing.
