MVMT Chiropractic has expanded its spinal decompression service and now has two Accu SPINA machines at their expanding clinic in Houston.
MVMT is owned by Dr John Mason and the clinic has a full spectrum of services to help patients return to an active lifestyle, without medications and avoiding the need for surgery wherever possible.
It is great to have such a forward thinking clinic in the network and having two Accu SPINA at the clinic highlights again the impact IDD Therapy spinal decompression is having in conservative spine care.
Great to have MVMT in the IDD Therapy family.

Working with a global network of IDD Therapy spinal decompression providers, I get to see what is happening on the ground.
I was sent this picture last week from the US. This is an IDD Therapy provider in Pekin, Illinois and you can hopefully get a sense of how spinal decompression is creating a shift in spine care.
IDD Therapy is delivered by the Accu SPINA machine. When I first got involved with IDD Therapy over ten years ago, the perception of the Accu SPINA and IDD Therapy was that it was traction. Given that traction was outmoded, why should anyone be interested in IDD Therapy spinal decompression?
The key information gap which we have been working hard to bridge is that IDD Therapy was developed precisely to address the failings of traction … and the natural limitations of hands on treatment.
Decompressing targeted spinal segments, working soft tissues and mobilising joints longitudinally with a patented oscillation capability is what makes IDD Therapy the global leader in spinal decompression and separates it from traction.
Whilst IDD Therapy isn’t yet mainstream in many countries, what you can see from this picture is that spinal decompression is real and happening.
It won’t be long before we are at 50 UK provider clinics. IDD Therapy has been covered by Aviva insurance for several years now because of the cost benefits they observed with surgery.
Whilst there are huge advances in spinal surgery, the mid ground of spine care has been stuck with very minor changes. Certainly nothing scalable like IDD Therapy to make a real difference to both patients and the clinicians treating them.
Many clinics outside the UK now have multiple Accu SPINA, the biggest provider has 12 machines at a number of locations. In the UK one clinic in Glasgow has two Accu SPINA and another in Essex now has two IDD Therapy spinal decompression locations.
I was speaking to the factory this week and a new clinic just ordered two Accu SPINA from the get go. Not one Accu SPINA to see how it would go but two because they were opening a new spinal decompression dedicated practice and in north America spinal decompression is well established.
If you have a spine care service and you are not using IDD Therapy, then I know that you are not getting as good outcomes as you could be.
I have a clinic in London since 2014 (www.spinexdiscclinic.com). I knowthe outcomes in my clinic and I work with clinics around the world using IDD Therapy. Nobody is ever saying IDD Therapy doesn’t work.
Imagine investing in something and discovering that you could achieve the same results with your hands or with another piece of equipment. That doesn’t happen.
IDD Therapy may not have 100% success rates, but what treatment does? However, consider that with IDD Therapy spinal decompression we are treating the patients for whom manual therapy and exercise HAS NOT worked.
Which makes the results with IDD Therapy all the more impressive.
If you are old enough, you mayremember when you were young and you first heard about McDonalds. It may be that you have grown up always knowing McDonalds but there was a time when it was only in America.
Now MCDonalds is global.
IDD Therapy is to spine care what McDonalds is to fast food.
Slightly different markets of course but when you see and hear clinics opening purely as spinal decompression centres, then you can be sure that a seismic change is happening in spine care.

If you work in the public sector, the cost savings of conservative treatment over pain clinics, injections or surgery make IDD Therapy extremely compelling. And of course, treatment is safe, gentle and non-invasive, with no side-effects.
We are delighted to welcome Eastbourne Back Pain Clinic to the IDD Therapy provider network as they take delivery of their Accu SPINA.
Led by Osteopath Steve Crossley, Steve has been treating backs for over twenty and is now providing IDD Therapy.
He is passionate about helping people get out of pain and moving again. Steve says:
“Hands on treatment is able to bring tremendous change for most patients. However some conditions need something more and IDD Therapy provides a means to help people get out of pain without relying on pain medication.
Where possible we aim to avoid the need for invasive treatment such as injections or surgery. IDD Therapy ensures we have the best possible opportunity to relieve pain and restore function through conservative treatment”.

November 12 2020 – Spinal Surgery News publishes article by physiotherapists John Wood and Lewis Payne of Sheffield Physiotherapy examining the expansion of IDD Therapy.
The authors conclude:
“Change happens slowly, especially within physical therapy. Having used IDD Therapy for many years, both on its own and in combination with other modalities, we believe it provides the greatest opportunity for scalable improvement for patients with unresolved back and neck pain.”
