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.”
