What is IDD therapy?

Intervertebral Differential Dynamics (or IDD therapy) is a treatment that targets specific spinal discs to relieve pressure and gently restore mobility. IDD is used as a non-surgical and non-medication treatment to relieve multiple conditions and was developed in the USA.

At Bolton Spinal Health we use IDD for the more severe cases of back or neck pain that we see particularly those that involve nerve root irritation. These can be cases that have not responded to manual treatment or to medications. IDD has a record of reducing the need for surgery.

Conditions treated include:

  • Herniated and bulging discs
  • Sciatica or nerve pain
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Chronic pain
  • Neck pain
  • Facet joint syndrome

IDD is used in 1,000 clinics globally including the UK. Lots of research has gone into the making and use of the IDD machine and it is one of the safest techniques to help alleviate spinal conditions.

Ask your practitioner or any of the Bolton Spinal Health team about IDD and whether IDD would be beneficial for you.

IDD Therapy

How does it work?

The IDD machine uses Accu-Spina technology that engages computer controlled pulling forces in order to distract (draw apart) segments of the spine to take pressure off specific discs and nerves. This allows tight muscles to gently stretch and relax stiff ligaments.IDD therapy also promotes movement and absorption of nutrients and fluids back into the disc, which is essential for disc health. This allows the body’s natural healing mechanisms to operate to their highest ability. The treatment takes place when the patient is laying down comfortably as this allows the spine to relax.

Why choose IDD therapy?

  • Current treatment not giving you desired results?
  • Do you want to stop taking pain killers?
  • Are you seeking long term pain relief?
  • Is your pain stopping you from doing your basic daily activities?

If you are suffering with back or neck pain contact us and we would be happy to recommend a course of care for you that will hopefully relieve your symptoms.

I have suffered with neck, shoulder and arm pain and the treatment I have received has really helped me. I would certainly recommend anyone who is suffering with pain to attend this clinic.


It has been fantastic to get some treatment that cures the cause and not just the symptoms.  I’m now pain free – Great!


Before coming for treatment I had severe discomfort in my lower back following an operation.  This caused problems with my posture.  I am now able to stand taller and walk more freely.


Seeing a Chiropractor has changed my life. Previously I was in pain most of the time and my quality of life was restricted. Now I know that there is hope for a future without pain.


This is a practice whose staff are friendly, helpful and professional.  My treatment is far from over (arthritic spine, hip surgery etc.) but I am certain that without it I should be in a far worse state than that which I presently enjoy.


Before any treatment, I was very stiff and did not have much movement in my neck.  I now have full movement in my neck.
