Herniated Disc? Sciatica? Back Pain?

GW Osteopathy is a well established spine clinic which moved to the Dapdune House Surgery by Guildford cricket ground in 2017. 

We have a special interest in chronic back pain, neck pain and sciatica where there is a disc-related issue.  We can help people of all ages.

Whether you have a large herniated disc or a small disc bulge causing intense sciatica in your legs, the IDD Therapy Disc Programme is designed to get you back on your feet again. 

Our goal is to ease pressure on the targeted disc and ease stiffness in the affected area by gently restoring spinal mobility.

We can treat other discs, these are the most commonly affected.  Some back pain and disc issues can also cause nerve pain in the arms or in the buttocks/legs (sciatica).

The key thing is to understand what is causing your problem and then tailor an appropriate programme of treatment.  This can include IDD Therapy and/or manual therapy.  In extreme cases we can refer patients to a consultant for a surgery opinion.

If you would like to better understand your back or neck pain condition, or are interested to see whether IDD Therapy may be an option for you, book our Back Pain Assessment for just £30.

What is IDD Therapy?

What is IDD therapy

IDD stands for Intervertebral Differential Dynamics (IDD) Therapy, or more simply IDD Therapy for short. Developed in the USA in the late 1990s, IDD Therapy is a targeted treatment which relieves pressure on specific spinal discs and gently restores mobility.  It is used to treat low back pain, neck pain and sciatica.

Disc problems affect people of all ages.  At GW Osteopathy we see a lot of office worker who sit at computers for hours at a time as well as people who develop back issues from lifting or working outside.  Often the discs get squashed to the point where it is injured, function is impaired and then our bodies let us know about it through pain. 

An everyday term for a common type of disc injury is a “slipped disc” or more technically a herniated disc or prolapsed disc.  If that sounds familiar, we can help you.

We have an IDD Therapy machine (Accu SPINA) which patients lie on as part of the treatment.  It is computer controlled and perfectly comfortable. 

By decompressing (taking pressure off) an injured or bulging/herniated disc and stretching the soft tissues, we can improve mobility in the spine and allow the body’s natural healing mechanisms to operate more efficiently.  In so doing, we aim to relieve pain caused by muscle spasm and alleviate nerve compression and irritation caused by bulging or herniated discs.

IDD Therapy addresses the failings of traditional traction to treat targeted spinal segment in a precise, safe and comfortable manner.

As clinicians, we can treat most back and neck pain with manual therapies but for some conditions – particularly those which are disc-related, – patients need something more to help their condition improve.   That is where IDD Therapy Disc Treatment comes in.

Why choose IDD Therapy?

  • Current treatment is not working
  • Want to stop taking painkillers
  • Seeking long-term pain relief
  • Want to return to normal daily activities

Typical candidates for IDD Therapy are people who have back or neck pain and may have tried various other treatments without success.  They may be taking pain medication and may be considering invasive treatments such as injections or in extreme cases, surgery.

Clinic Director:  Gemma Ware, DO

“There are so many back pain sufferers who are frustrated by the lack of options when manual therapy and exercise alone aren’t enough to resolve their problem.  The IDD Therapy Disc Programme appeals to practitioners and patients because it is non-invasive and it addresses the causes of many people’s problems in a way which is not possible with hands-only treatments. Combined with gentle exercise, the IDD Therapy Disc Programme provides a framework for patients to get lasting relief.”
