Our Chiropractic pain management treatments include many Therapeutic Modalities including: IDD
– IDD stands for Intervertebral Differential Dynamics, which can only be applied through a computer directed, highly advanced technology which allows a specific spinal segment to be targeted for a treatment which uses a computerized means of differentiating between spinal segments and applying a dynamic therapy to mobilize a spinal structure.
Q: How does IDD Therapy work?
A: IDD Therapy provides a computer directed method of applying and achieving physical therapy treatment objectives without requiring the patient to participate in any exhaustive or painful exercise regimen. It is performed by a certified clinician. The IDD Therapy® device gently manipulates the offending spinal segment, while helping stretch and re-tone underlying musculature. The result is improved lumbar health and pain elimination in a significant portion of patients treated.
Q: If I use IDD Therapy, when will I start feeling better?
A: Many patients start feeling improvement by the second week
Q: Are there any side effects to the treatments?
A: Most patients do not experience any adverse side effects from undergoing IDD Therapy.
Q: Are there any drugs used in the treatment?
A: Although drug therapy is not a mainstay of IDD Therapy, some clinicians advocate the use of anti-inflammatory medications
Q: How long does it take to complete the treatment?
A: Each treatment session lasts approximately 30 minutes and is repeated approximately 20 times over the course of 35 days.
Q: How successful is IDD Therapy treatment?
A: IDD Therapy treatment has undergone extensive clinical testing and has achieved substantial rates.
Q: Does IDD Therapy rehab involve surgery or injections?
A: No. IDD Therapy treatment is completely non-invasive, is non-surgical and involves no injections. Not only is IDD Therapy treatment safe and painless, it’s also comfortable and relaxing.

Cold Therapy – Used to decrease inflammation, pain, injury and spasm, cold therapy has long been a treatment used by medical professionals.
Electrical Stimulation – Electric Muscle Stimulation is the most common form of electrical stimulation. It is not painful and does not require needles.
Heat Therapy – Also referred to as Thermotherapy, the application of heat to the body via various modes, including Ultrasound, to promote health and wellness after an injury or stiffness.
Hydro Therapy – The use of water to aid with pain and injury.
Injection Treatments – Local anesthetics, with or without cortisone-like medicines can be injected around nerves or into joints. These may act to reduce swelling, irritation, muscle spasms or abnormal nerve transmissions that can cause pain.
Medication – Treating pain with medications is sometimes necessary to control pain.
Muscle Stripping – Muscle Stripping involves deep tissue manual therapy to clear out the adhesions (scar tissue) formed in muscle fiber during physical activity. The technique is more effective than a deep tissue massage or a sports massage, as it elongates the muscles and removes the knots. For athletic patients, muscle stripping works to accelerate recovery, prevent injuries, as well as increase stride length, flexibility, and strength.
Relaxation – Biofeedback or other forms of relaxation therapy are often used to relieve pain, reduce muscle spasms and diminish stress. Surgery – When necessary, surgical treatment may be recommended to help alleviate symptoms.
Strengthening Exercises – Your practitioner may recommend exercise to maintain weight, build and maintain bone density, muscle strength, and joint mobility.
X-Ray – Images are taken to help identify problems and symptoms of pain and misalignment. Using this technique allows the practitioner a more detailed analysis of symptoms.
