Since its development in the late 1990s and early 2000s, IDD Therapy treatment has had a commitment to evidence-based medicine.

Overall, the evidence shows that IDD Therapy to be as effective or more effective than manual therapy and exercise and more effective than traditional traction.  Below are various studies and articles.

Commitment to Evidence-Based Medicine

IDD Therapy providers all use internationally recognised-research tools to track and monitor patient progress (Oswestry Disability Index and Visual Analogue Scale) as well as objective outcome measures.

In addition, the IDD Therapy treatment is unique as the ONLY physiotherapuetic device to have these measures built into the software.  In addition, all treatments are recorded and thus IDD Therapy provides a duplicable and measurable programme of treatment.


There is no such thing as a cure-all for back pain sadly, however with IDD Therapy there is a genuine commitment to evidence-based best practice which is backed up by the recording capabilities.
