KLS Chiropractic expands with IDD Therapy spinal decompression and Accu SPINA technology

KLS Chiropractic in Gainsville Georgia took delivery of their Accu SPINA last week to provide IDD Therapy spinal decompression.

Non-surgical spinal decompression is well established in the US as this is where the category of treatment was developed.

Dr Lisa Richter has expanded her practice and as can be seen, is delighted with her new technology.


Whilst 2020 is a year most of us will want to forget, the reality is that many people suffer with unresolved back and neck pain.

IDD Therapy is best known as a treatment for disc-related problems such as herniated discs.

When manual therapy and exercise alone is not enough, IDD Therapy spinal decompression is the next stage in treatment.

Most patients do not need injections and only some patients may still require surgery, especially if treatment is not left for years.

So we congratulate Dr Richter and wish her continued success.

How clinics evolve – IDD Therapy Liverpool at Balance Health Centre

Earlier this year we installed an Accu Spina in Liverpool for Michael Furlong of Balance Health Centre.

This was me with Michael (center) at the training.

Michael actually moved some walls in his clinic to make room for IDD in a dual purpose treatment room.

Having suffered with his back and wanting to avoid surgery, Michael’s friend had recommended he have IDD Therapy in Buxton.

After that his receptionist went to Nantwich for IDD and the decision was unanimously taken that the clinic should definitely have IDD!


When a clinic gets IDD, change does not happen overnight. Rather, it is a case of gradual changes and improvements over time.

Whether that is systems, marketing, new website, staffing or just improving the non-surgical spine programmes.

Here is Michael now. He has actually moved the position of his Accu SPINA (by moving a door which was where the tower is now) and as you can see, he’s made signage.

I like the sign. Of course it gives patients confidence when they come in. But it’s actually an important detail.

A detail of progressive improvements in the clinic, a clinic ticking off those small improvements in every area of the business.

Evolving Clinics

Each individual change on its own in clinic does not change the world, but cumulatively and collectively, when you add them up they propel the clinic to a higher level further down the line.

We all have our “would like to do” or “really need to get round to” lists, (usually in our heads!) but as the famous development coach Tony Robbins says, it’s when our “shoulds” become our “musts” that we make the changes.

Those changes can be small or large, but they set us on a different path and it’s that which translates into those significant progressions years down the line.

Bringing IDD Therapy to a clinic is an important decision.

I see it every time, having IDD in clinic forces people to take care of those details … because they want to progress. And the changes aren’t huge, but when you have IDD, things get done and things move forward.

If what you are doing now isn’t going to take you to where you want it to be in five years time, then IDD is a powerful catalyst.

The uncertainty of society isn’t going away. But most people will still have jobs, there will always be back pain and people will rather go to a clinic than a hospital.

Steve Small
Clinic Development Director
IDD Therapy Disc Clinics

Two physiotherapists from Sheffield have published an article about ID Therapy.  John Wood and Lewis Payne of Sheffield Physiotherapy have been using IDD Therapy for almost ten years.

John says:

“When I first saw IDD Therapy I thought it was like traction, as many physios do. Traction, as we know, had faded out of clinical practice because at that time there were few trials that showed it to be effective. Although, ask any older practitioner who used traction and they will tell you that for some patients it really helped them.

IDD Therapy got our attention initially because unlike traction of old, it was specific and able to target particular levels of the spine.”

Lewis has been instrumental in developing research tools for all clinics using IDD Therapy to be able to audit their outcomes and have consistency in the way all clinics manage data.  This is an important step in developing understanding of the treatment.

John finishes:

“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.”

IDD Therapy now available in North Yorkshire at Cathedral Osteopaths

Located just north of Harrogate in Ripon, Cathedral Osteopaths has emerged from lockdown with an enhanced spinal service incorporating IDD Therapy.

Led by Clinic Director Vanessa Robinson, Vanessa ordered her Accu SPINA machine just before the lockdown.  2020 has been a challenging year for everyone and yet Vanessa knew that IDD Therapy needed to be part of her practice.

Vanessa says: “There are some patients who just need something more for their pain.IDD Therapy fits the principles of Osteopathy by helping the body the body to heal itself.

The Accu SPINA machine we have gives our clinic far greater scope to do more for patients who previously we wouldn’t have been able to help.”

The clinic is located directly opposite Ripon Cathedral and receives patients from across the county.

Bury Chiropractic Centre brings IDD Therapy to Lancashire!

“Where there’s a will there’s a way” so the saying goes.  This applies perfectly to chiropractors Wendy Davis and Alicia Leontieff of Bury Chiropractic.

Keen to do more for certain back and neck pain sufferers, owners Alicia and Wendy had decided they needed to bring IDD Therapy spinal decompression to their expanding clinic in Bury.

However, there was no space to put an Accu SPINA (IDD machine)! Fortunately with a can do attitude, the duo and their team started looking at ways to change things around a little.

This team is always positive!

So with a little creativity and a handy builder, they rearranged some storage, added a door, divided a large treatment room and all of a sudden there was space for an Accu SPINA and voilà!

Preparing for IDD Therapy, Andris with Wendy.

Oh and to get the machine up the stairs and into the treatment room, the carpenter whipped out a banister on the stairs and hey presto, the IDD room was ready for action!

It is fantastic to have Bury Chiropractic in the global network of IDD Therapy providers and they are already seeing how it is providing help to an under-served population of back pain sufferers.
