IDD Therapy – Intervertebral Differential Dynamics Therapy® is a proven treatment for the relief of lower back pain. With a significant success rate, thousands of patients have experienced dramatic pain relief and healing.

IDD Therapy is an innovative approach for the relief of lower back syndromes, including:

• Herniated or bulging discs
• Degenerative disc disease
• Posterior facet syndrome
• Sciatica
• Acute or chronic back pain

IDD Therapy is non-surgical, non-invasive, and typically does not involve pain medications. The treatment is not only safe and painless, but also comfortable and relaxing. The course of therapy includes approximately 20 treatment sessions and is completed in about 35 days. Each procedure is performed with a unique, patent pending physio-therapeutic device and is performed by a certified clinician, specializing in back pain care. The treatment sessions are brief, lasting approximately 30 minutes.

How does IDD Therapy work?
IDD Therapy can isolate each lumbar vertebra (L1, L2, L3, L4 or L5) and distract the vertebrae surrounding an injured disc 5 to 7 millimeters. The 25 to 30 minute treatment provides static, intermittent, and cycling forces on structures that may be causing low back pain.

Negative pressure promotes the diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrients into the vertebral disc area, thereby re-hydrating the degenerated disc. Repeated pressure differential promotes retraction of a herniated nucleus pulposus (the elastic core of the intervertebral disc).
The IDD Therapy treatment can
reduce pressure on the vertebral joints,
promote retraction of herniated discs,
promote self healing and rehabilitation of damaged discs,
thereby relieving low back pain.
Several sessions are required to achieve optimal results.

Why should you consider IDD Therapy?

IDD Therapy is credible. It is the only treatment that was developed by a team of back specialists including neurosurgeons, orthopedists, physiatrists, osteopaths, chiropractors, neurologists, and physical therapists.

IDD Therapy is proven and effective. The procedure has been studied extensively over the past six years and has been clinically validated. Thousands of patients have been successfully treated with IDD Therapy.

IDD Therapy is non-surgical and non-invasive. The complications from surgery can be severe and may result in debilitating conditions.

IDD Therapy is painless and involves no recovery time.

IDD Therapy is convenient. Treatment sessions last only 25 to 30 minutes. And because the procedure is non-invasive, most IDD Therapy patients can carry-on with normal daily activities. Additionally, patients can expect only minimal absence from work.

IDD Therapy is cost-effective. The cost of treatment is minimal compared to the cost of surgery. And, in most cases, financing is available for those without insurance or with less than comprehensive insurance. Several payment options are available and a monthly payment plan can be a much better financial decision than a 10% or 20% insurance co-payment on back surgery.



Medical protocol does not involve surgery. IDD Therapy treatment costs just a fraction of surgery.

IDD Therapy is non-invasive. The official protocol does not involve penetration of body tissue to address organic pathology.

IDD Therapy is not only painless, but is comfortable and relaxing as well. The intervertebral machines designed to deliver IDD are state-of-the-art medical devices. In regards to engineering and design, paramount attention has been given to ergonomics and function.

Treatment is completed in approximately 35 days with minimal follow-up. Contrarily, surgery requires significant recovery time and extensive follow-up.

Cash payments for IDD Therapy treatments are available to IDD Therapy providers.

For many patients, non-strenuous work can continue during therapy. Employers benefit from less work loss and will refer future employees for treatment.

IDD Therapy is convenient for patients. All evaluation, diagnostic work and therapy can be performed in the clinic environment. Patients do not need to make special trips to large, impersonal hospitals for management.
