The latest dynamic spine models allow us to see the effects of forces on intervertebral discs.
Manual therapy typically uses an anterior-posterior directional mobilisation to treat spinal segments.
IDD Therapy treatment comprises a targeted longitudinal distraction, with a longitudinal oscillation/ mobilisation at the point of maximum joint distraction.
This decompresses the discs and works soft tissues simultaneously in a way which is not possible with the hands alone.
