North American Medical Corporation Announces Major Expansion in IDD Therapy® Clinics

Published July 20, 2021. GeorgiaChron.com.

Dr. Graham Kern with his three IDD Therapy machines called Accu-SPINAAt the beginning of 2021, like many CEO’s, Carlos Becerra of North American Medical (NAM) Corporation, wasn’t sure what to project for equipment sales for the upcoming year.  He certainly couldn’t have predicted what occurred.

NAM’s flagship product, the Accu-SPINA® system, administers nonsurgical spinal treatment known as IDD Therapy® for disc disease and injuries.  Historically, the majority of Accu-SPINA® systems are purchased by doctors seeking to expand their treatment options by adding IDD Therapy® treatment to their practice, in other words by purchasing their first Accu-SPINA® system.

This year, the biggest surprise was the number of doctors acquiring their second or third Accu-SPINA® system in order to meet patient demand for IDD Therapy® treatment.

Dr. Graham Kern (pictured), Lakeland Disc Center in Lakeland, FL, said, “As patients started to emerge from lockdown, we experienced a surge in people seeking nonsurgical options to treat back and neck pain.”  After years of successfully treating painful issues such as bulging and herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and disc degeneration with IDD Therapy®, Dr. Kern didn’t hesitate to add additional Accu-SPINA® systems in order to meet the needs of his patients….  continued

How IDD Therapy® can help to relieve unresolved sciatica from a bulging disc

Published June 2, 2021. Lisa Baker, Editor, Wellbeing News. Written by Richard Hughes, MCSP.

If the discs become weakened or too much force is exerted on them from certain twisting or awkward bending for example, the wall of the discs can bulge.  A disc bulge, or herniation, where the walls of the disc are pushed outwards can put pressure on these nerves exiting the spinal cord.

Pressure on, or inflammatory irritation of the sciatic nerve from a bulging or herniated disc can cause intense pain traveling down the buttocks and legs.  It can be a constant dull ache or feel like jolts of electricity….  continued

Tackling Unresolved Back Pain

Tackling Unresolve Pain Article IDD Therapy Spinal Surgery News

~ Michael Furlong, Clinic Director, Balance Health Centre

It is rare for someone to get through life without an episode or two of back pain. As a clinician, back pain is by far the number one reason people come to see me. The same applies generally to osteopathy and chiropractic. We see people with back pain who fall into both categories of unresolved pain: unresolved because they have put off doing something about it; or unresolved because despite a number of treatments, pain persists.

Depending on the nature of the problem, in practically all cases something can be done to help people: from manual therapy and exercise to more advanced treatments such as IDD Therapy spinal decompression….  continued

5 Ways IDD Therapy Can Help Older People With Their Unresolved Sciatica

IDD Therapy Can Help Older People With Their Unresolved Sciatica

~Richard Hughes, MCSP

Sciatica becomes more common as we age. This does not mean, however, that older people should accept it as a part of life! So, what can they do to tackle unresolved sciatica?

Most bouts of back pain are short-lived and a lot of issues are referred to as ‘non-specific low back pain’, meaning it is difficult to ascribe the symptoms to a specific structure. The body typically deals well with these issues and recovery is just a matter of time.

However, when back pain persists, is reluctant to settle and then the symptoms are felt in the legs as sciatica, it may be the case that disc-based pathology is at fault. This is where IDD Therapy® non-surgical spinal decompression can help people without them having to be dependent on pain medication just to get through the day…  continued

How I Beat a Slipped Disc Without Surgery

What Doctors Don’t Tell You.  January 2020

When Sally Lansdale finished her training at the British School of Osteopathy (sic Chiropractic) in 1984, little did she realize that one day her own body would take her past the limits of what osteopathy and chiropractic could effectively treat back then.

“I always had back pain”

she says. “Most chiropractors have back problems because of our training. First you have students practicing on you, and then it’s always a bit dodgy for a while after college when you are first treating patients.”  She didn’t think much about the low-grade chronic pain in her cervical and lumbar regions (neck and low back).  Beyond her practice, she had an active lifestyle that included a passion for playing tennis and horseback riding.

Then, a series of accidents – a fall off a horse, a windsurfing accident, and another accident while skiing – exacerbated the existing problem…  continue news article

Managing Slipped Discs

The Hippocratic Post. December 17, 2018
Managing Slipped Discs Blog about IDD Therapy and herniated slipped discs

The term slipped disc refers to a condition where the center of a spinal disc bulges outwards and presses on a nerve. The spinal discs act as shock absorbers and through a variety of causes, the walls of the disc can become weaker. If the center of the disc pushes out, this can cause the disc wall to bulge and that can be when pain strikes.

Here are six steps of management that should be considered in this situation:

  • Painkillers
  • Manual Therapy
  • Injections
  • IDD Therapy
  • Spinal surgery
  • Other treatments
