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.”

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.

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.
“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.
“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.”
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.
