Leading physiotherapy clinic in Croydon introduces IDD Therapy disc treatment

Croydon-based spinal experts, Back in Shape are one of the latest IDD Therapy Disc Clinic recruits to launch the specialist disc programme.


Clinical Director, Anthony Padgett and his dedicated team of physios, sports therapists and Pilates instructors have a special interest in unresolved back and neck issues.

Anthony has amassed a wealth of knowledge and experience in his 30 years as a physiotherapist and lecturer; treating every patient with the same genuine care – from office workers to elite athletes at the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre.  The IDD Therapy spinal disc programme is a welcome addition to his clinic’s back pain services.

He says: “The biggest frustration in my job is knowing that there are people living in pain who we could help.  Often patients think that there is nothing more that can be done, particularly when they have tried many treatments.  By including IDD Therapy in our programme of care, we are able to offer patients with difficult spine issues such as herniated discs and sciatica, greater options to get them out of pain.”

Back Into Shape’s Anthony Padgett & William Herbert welcome their new arrival


Whether it’s a large herniated disc or a small disc bulge causing intense sciatica in the legs, the IDD Therapy disc programme is designed to get patients back on their feet again without resorting to pain management or invasive procedures.
