Sure, shots and pills can get rid of back pain…for a little while. Surgery can wipe out pain for good, but it may also wipe you out for a few months and leave you in more pain than you had initially. If you’re looking for a permanent fix for lower back pain that’s noninvasive and low risk, IDD Therapy (Intervertabral Differential Dynamic Therapy) is the best option. And, if you’re looking in Texas, then you’ll find Champion Chiropractic in Lakeway is one the few clinics that offers this technology.
What is IDD Therapy?
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
• 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 pulpous (the elastic core of the inter vertebral disc).
The pressure inside the disc is reduced to facilitate the transfer of fluids, nutrients and oxygen back inside the 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, physiatrist, 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.
