Aberdeen Back Pain Clinic – The Little Clinic Provides IDD Therapy Spinal Decompression

Husband and wife Osteopaths Chris Ross and Sarah Nolan have added an Accu SPINA to their practice to develop their non-invasive spine service.

Becoming the fifth clinic in Scotland to offer IDD Therapy Spinal Decompression, The Little Clinic is well placed to serve the city.

Originally Chris had a video call with Steve Small and they discussed the placement of their Accu, with a view to partition part of the reception area.

As it turned out, Sarah felt the machine might work better the other way around and so we spun the machine around (fortunately there was space).  And the result, MUCH better!

Chris’s father Colin is also an Osteopath in the city and joined for training to ensure everyone is able to get involved.

Wishing Chris, Sarah and Colin every success.


Milton Keynes – ISIS Chiropractic Centre expands with IDD Therapy Spinal Decompression

We are delighted to welcome the team, led by Jatinder Benepal and Per Kleberg, to the IDD provider network. 

With growing awareness of the benefits of IDD and having seen the outcomes from some patients who had travelled for IDD, the clinic has expanded their spinal suite with an Accu SPINA.

The clinic has a full range of a treatments, including a first class rehab gym, and IDD helps to complete their conservative spine treatment offering.

ISIS was established in 1986 and has clinics in Milton Keynes, Northampton and Aylesbury.

Delighted to welcome the team to the provider network, best wishes to the whole team.

IDD Therapy Spinal Decompression was developed in the late 1990s to address the failings of traditional traction and the objectives of manual therapy. 

It is suitable for:

  • Herniated / Bulging Discs
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Sciatica and cervical radiculopathy
  • Facet Syndrome

It is also used to relieve pain associated with spinal stenosis.

Lyfe Health Bournemouth Expand With IDD Therapy Spinal Decompression

The physio team at Lyfe Health in Bournemouth have expanded their spinal services suite with IDD Therapy spinal decompression.

Established in the city for many years, the team recently moved into new premises, completing a full conversion of a former bank building, complete with original vault!

Offering a full spectrum of physiotherapy and rehab services, including Shockwave Therapy, Joint Injections and a substantial Pilates Reformer studio, we are delighted to welcome the team at Lyfe Health to the IDD Therapy provider network.

Congratulations on a fantastic job getting the clinic ready, a huge project which they can be immensely proud of.

IDD Therapy Spinal Decompression

Study finds non-surgical back pain treatment may promote cellular healing and achieve higher success rates due to patented oscillation feature

Delighted to share a news release about an interesting study just published, looking at the mechanisms of the patented oscillation component of IDD Therapy Spinal Decompression under fluoroscopy.

Active oscillatory signaling introduced during the high-tension period of decompression treatment may lead to higher levels of self-healing through improved tissue repair and uniform separation of the vertebrae.  

A non-invasive treatment that works to mechanically decompress the spine in order to provide back and neck pain relief from herniated and degenerated disc disease is generating new interest in the arena of cellular biology. 

Videofluoroscopy imaging was used by researchers to study how the spine responds to dynamic forces during IDD Therapy® treatment, an advanced spinal decompression treatment performed with a device called the Accu-SPINA® System.

IDD Therapy specialist, Richard E. Busch III D. C. in collaboration with Prahlad G. Menon, Ph.D., took images of the spine while treating a patient using a primary sine wave decompression force, and then again using the same primary decompression force plus an additional oscillating waveform at the height of each treatment cycle for comparison.

The results were published in the online edition of the Journal of Rehabilitation Therapy. Researchers, Prahlad G Menon, Bioengineering, University of Pittsburgh, and Sergey Leo Sorin, M.D., DABFM of the International Institute of Holistic Medicine, observed that the treatment performed with the additional oscillation feature demonstrated greater uniformity in the positioning of the vertebral structures while unloading was occurring. Having equal force around the circumference of the disc causes superior and even distraction.

When a joint is under excessive force from either the anterior or posterior side of the vertebra, the joint can rotate due to uneven loading/unloading. Eliminating rotational movement of the joint reduces the risk of strain on surrounding tissues allowing for a better treatment outcome. 

The addition of oscillatory signaling changed the behavior of vertebral structures during treatment, indicating that the connective tissues and nerve endings between the vertebral structures respond differently when oscillation is introduced. 

Oscillation may play a role in the higher treatment outcomes achieved through IDD Therapy® because the treatment employs dynamic specificity for intra-cellular communication. Oscillatory signaling can be a powerful means of encoding and transferring information within the body.

Oscillation serves to mobilise the targeted spinal segment, providing 13 full minutes of longitudinal mobilisation at the point of maximum joint distraction.

The biomechanical benefit of uniform unloading, due to the addition of oscillatory signaling, is increased overall space between the vertebra during treatment, which has an inverse relationship (and desirable effect) on lower intradiscal pressure to reduce pain and aid healing.  

Dr. Busch stated, “We believe that IDD Therapy® using the Accu-Spina® may achieve 92% positive results because the secondary oscillatory signal induces mechanotransduction; that is, mechanical stimuli can convert effectively into electrochemical activity at the cellular level.” 

“While more studies are needed,” stated Dr. Sorin, “it’s exciting to begin the exploration of the regenerative properties possible with this form of advanced spinal decompression on the Accu-SPINA® System.”
