Spinal Decompression (IDD Therapy)
What is Spinal Decompression?
Simply put, spinal decompression creates negative pressure between your vertebrae by a gentle pulling motion. Here at Total Health, we use the Accu-Spina system-the only decompression table able to perform IDD therapy-Intervertebral Differential Dynamics, utilizing oscillation with the gentle pulling.
Intervertebral: between the bones of the spine
Differential Dynamics: computer generated algorithm used to change the angle of the pull. This allows us to isolate specific vertebrae, thereby providing targeted treatment for the affected disc.
During the actual decompression period, the negative pressure allows water and nutrients to flow back into the disc. This in turn, promotes healing of the disc and not just pain management. There are other spinal traction or inversion tables that can alleviate some of the symptoms, but without isolating the specific vertebrae, actual healing can’t occur.
Treatments are about 30 mins each and typically require 3 sessions per week, for a total of 20-30 sessions, depending on the severity of the injury. Most patients have no side effects, although mild muscle spasms have rarely occurred.
