Unique, Non-Surgical Neck and Back Pain Therapy Now Available in N. Colorado; Mallory Osteopathic Family Practice the Only Provider North of Denver Offering IDD Therapy®

Loveland, CO (PRWEB) July 20, 2005

Mallory Osteopathic Family Practice is pleased to announce the availability of IDD Therapy®, a proven, non-surgical therapy for those suffering chronic back and neck pain. Previously, patients in northern Colorado or southern Wyoming who had exhausted other treatment options for neck or back pain had to consider surgery, or travel to Denver for Intervertebral Differential Dynamics (IDD) Therapy. Given that four out of five Americans will experience some sort of back pain during their lives, 65 million suffer from low back pain each year, and a similar number are afflicted with neck pain, thousands in the area stand to benefit from this treatment.

Â?Patients are typically relieved to learn that there is a treatment option that can allow them to avoid surgery if other types of treatment for back or neck pain fail,Â? notes Dr. Mallory. Â?Surgery works well in many cases, providing full or partial relief from pain, but there is no guarantee of success, and IDD Therapy provides an alternative to consider for those who view surgery as a last resort.”

IDD Therapy is performed on an Accuspina Machine from North American Medical Corporation ( IDD Therapy is completely non-invasive and painless, and has proven successful in treating 86% of people with lower-back pain from bulging or herniated discs, facet syndrome, sciatica, stenosis and non-specific causes often treated with surgery. Patients who have not found relief from back or neck pain after standard medical treatment should consider IDD therapy prior to choosing surgery in their search for relief.

A recent Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre study of 349 back pain sufferers in the U.K. was featured on CNN and other major news sources. The study found no evidence that surgery was a better treatment, even though it cost nearly twice as much as rehabilitation in the U.K. IDD Therapy can cost one half to one tenth of what typical back pain surgeries can run in the U.S. Besides the common cold, back pain is the most common cause of lost workdays in adults younger than 45 years of age. Patients seeking relief spend $ 25 billion annually.

IDD Therapy offers one of the most advanced methods of decompression therapy available today. During the IDD Therapy treatment session, the Accuspina machine gradually applies pressure on specific neck or low back discs, gently opening the discs and allowing oxygen, proteins and other substrates to enter and re-hydrate the discs. This negative pressure, or vacuum, promotes the regression of herniated or bulging discs, thereby effectively relieving the patientÂ?s pain.

The majority of health insurance plans, including Medicare, cover IDD therapy treatment sessions with the Accuspina machine. The therapy offers relief from post-surgical patients still suffering neck or back pain. Dr. Mallory is board-certified in family practice and osteopathic manipulation. Mallory Osteopathic Family Practice is located at 1952 Blue Mesa Court, just west of McKee Medical Center. Mallory Osteopathic Family Practice brings this unique treatment to northern Colorado, along with traditional family practice services and osteopathic treatment focusing on preventative healthcare.
