Can I have IDD therapy?

Many back pain conditions are located at a particular level in the spine. With IDD therapy we use computer-controlled pulling forces delivered by the SPINA medical devices to gently distract (draw apart) targeted segments of the spine in order to take pressure off specific discs and nerves whilst at the same time, gently stretching tight muscles and stiff ligaments.

By decompressing (taking pressure off) an injured or bulging 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 can relieve pain caused by muscle spasm and alleviate nerve compression and irritation caused by bulging discs.

99% pain free...

My whole quality of life has changed following the IDD treatment and I am now 99% pain free without the use of any pain relief.

I would recommend IDD...

Now I am a lot better and glad I had the treatments. I was being treated for lower back pain with tingling and numbness to the lower legs. I found the staff caring and professional and would recommend giving IDD a try

Thoroughly recommend IDD Therapy...

I would thoroughly recommend IDD Therapy with Berkhamsted Osteopaths. Having been in pain for years with a slipped disc, I was not expecting much but from the very first treatment I had more mobility and less pain and over the weeks I felt better and better.

Tim and his team are very caring and do all they can to help their patients feel better. The service they give is very good indeed.

Significant transformation with IDD Therapy...

I have been a patient of Tim Hanwell since 2005 when my Lumbar Stenosis problem first started. At the time the pain was excruciating.

Following referral to an orthopaedic consultant surgeon the decision was to operate; however, my GP advised osteopathy as a possible alternative to surgery, and recommended Tim.

Following intensive osteopathy sessions the transformation was significant; I’ve been visiting Tim since then and whenever my back problem recurs. I always found Tim highly professional, caring and engaging.

I am now free from pain...

I have suffered for many years with back problems which were particularly severe in April/May 2019. Having tried physio and chiropractors, I arranged my own MRI scan and Xray and took those results for a consultation with a specialist back consultant.

The consultant diagnosed L3/4 stenosis and a Grade 1 degenerative spondylolisthesis at L4/5 causing bilateral buttock pain and back pain. The consultant would not resort to surgery, as he felt that it would not give much benefit if any, because I also had facet joint arthritis.

However, after undertaking my own research, I discovered IDD Therapy and Tim Hanwell at Berkhamsted Osteopaths, who are equipped to deliver IDD Therapy. I have just completed a 6 month programme of IDD Therapy, which consisted of over 20 sessions. Initially, there was little improvement until we had completed 15 sessions. It is different for different patients. I am now free from pain.

I recommend Tim Hanwell and his team to you and of course the IDD Therapy
