WHAT IS IDD THERAPY?

Non-Surgical Disc Repair Therapy

Do you struggle with back pain?

Have you experienced numbness, tingling, or burning in your hands or feet?

 

These issues often come back to a single fundamental problem: 

Damaged spinal discs. 

 

If you’ve been told that you have:

  • A disc bulge

  • A disc herniation

  • A degenerative disc

  • Sciatica….

 

We may be able to help you, without surgery. 

 

Here at Midwest Disc Clinic, we treat spinal disc damage with IDD Therapy. 

 

IDD Therapy is a non-surgical approach that has up to a 92% success rate. Compare that to traditional back surgery, which has only a 53% success rate. 

 

Before I explain how IDD Therapy works and why it’s so effective, let me take a minute to break down the problem. I want you to understand what’s going on with your back so that you make an informed decision about how you want to recover. 

 

Understanding Spinal Disc Damage

Your spinal discs are sensitive, delicate sections of living tissue that sit in between your vertebrae. 

 

These discs can be damaged by: 

  • An impact injury (like a fall, a car accident, or a sports injury).

  • Long term problems (like poor posture).

  • A simple wrong movement (like twisting the wrong way in bed).

 

When an injury happens, it can be severely debilitating and lead to a lifetime of chronic pain.
 

Wondering why this is happening?
 

Here is the answer…. Your disc pump is broken!

 

Yes, the disc pump is broken, which leads to

  • Disc Bulges,

  • Herniations,

  • (eventually) Disc Decay. 

 

A healthy spine works on pumps.

 

Let me explain.

 

The disc is a water balloon that has no blood supply but needs nutrients and oxygen and needs to get waste products out in order to stay healthy. 

 

Without a direct blood supply, none of that can happen. This causes the disc to break down.

 

As the disc starts to become increasingly damaged, you can no longer get waste out and oxygen in.

 

This creates an acidic environment in the disc, breaking down cells and creating inflammation and pain. You can’t get Glucosamine and Chondroitin into the cells of the disc and the tissue continues to weaken and break down. 

 

The outer 1/3rd of the disc has nerves that supply the disc with feeling. When the pump stops working correctly, the nerves start to become overactivated and start to cause pain.

 

What is the answer you ask? 

Well, fix the pump of course!!

But that’s easier said than done!! 

 

First, you need to know at which level the pump is broken. The only way to do this is to get a great MRI to see the exact level of damage and what type of disc injury is present. Then and only then can you go to work to repair the disc pump with what we call IDD Therapy.

 

IDD Therapy includes MRI analysis of the specific disc that needs help and then a targeted separation of the specific disc level.

 

That's when the MAGIC happens, as the disc begins to relearn how to pump to really repair itself.

 

IDD Therapy has 2 phases:

 

Phase #1: 

We decreasing the size of the disc injury by targeting the specific disc with specific, guided separation of the segment.

 

This is followed by technology only found with our IDD Therapy tables, which we use to repair and retrain the disc pump. As the pump returns to optimal functionality, the disc begins to heal. This process leads to up to a 92% success rate and a 74% success rate 4 years later!

 

Phase #2:

The second phase comes after the pump is working properly on its own on the IDD Therapy table.

 

We then teach the pump how to work on its own off the table. 

 

We do this by using the table to create 26% more force in the pumping mechanism. This forces the pump mechanism to work on its own, creating a 74% success rate of the disc being healed 4 years later! 

 

If you or somebody you know has a disc bulge, herniation, or decaying disc please let them know that IDD Therapy is a NON-surgical option with up to a 92% success rate.
