Spinal Decompression (IDD) Therapy

The Accu-SPINA System

IDD (Intervertebral Differential Dynamics) therapy is a form of non-invasive, non-surgical treatment used by many doctors across the US to treat low back and neck conditions. We are pleased to be able to offer our patients this form of therapy that will help relieve their pain, leaving them comfortable and functional.

Through the use of computerized technology, the Accu-SPINA machine can target the specific location that needs to be treated with minimal adverse effect on surrounding muscles. Each session last about twenty minutes, during which the machine will pull at a patient-specific weight. This pulling causes a negative pressure within the disc allowing oxygen and nutrients, necessary for healing, to enter the space. To assist in pain relief heat and massage may be included during the therapy session. Other therapy modalities such as core strengthening and stretches may be done before or after your session.

To maximize your results in using the Accu-SPINA system, it is recommended that each patient completes 20 sessions of IDD therapy. However, some patients may feel relief sooner. Sessions are typically done 1-3 days apart so as not to lose any progress made. Studies have shown that there is an 86% success rate for patients who comply with their treatment protocol. Please call our office to set up an appointment time to discuss with our doctor your specific treatment plan to get you on the road to functioning more fully!
