In the recent IDD Newsletter, there is an interesting article about ‘Reducing the Back Pain Burden on Primary Care with IDD Therapy. It goes on to say:-

The opioid crisis in America highlighted the dangers from over prescribing pain medications for back pain and has raised consciousness amongst health care professionals of the need and desirability to consider alternatives.

Whilst pain medications help patients with back and neck pain, are they the optimal go-to treatment when pain persists? Targeted IDD Therapy programmes restore spinal function and relieve pain, allowing patients the opportunity for long term relief and better life quality.

As the availability of IDD Therapy spreads, non-invasive, non-pharmacological treatment programmes take on an increasingly valuable role, both for patient health and for reducing the burden on primary care providers.

Spinal Surgery News is a prestigious publication and whilst the main focus is spinal surgery, most spinal surgeons operate on a fraction of the patients they see.  Instead, they advise patients not needing immediate surgery to try all non-surgical options.

Over the past few weeks we have seen more and more patients who are requesting IDD Therapy to help them with unresolved pain, that needs more than manual therapy. A number of these patients have back and neck pain.  IDD Therapy is a treatment tool we have been using, especially for patients with disc problems like a bulging or herniated disc as well as sciatica.

Here at Theale Wellbeing Centre, we provide IDD Therapy and use it in combination with manual therapy and exercise.  It’s great to see IDD Therapy getting the coverage it deserves.
