Our patient education dynamic spine models help low back pain sufferers better understanding of their pain sources.

A dynamic spine model can empower a patient to help him or her get to know the motions postures and loads related to pain. Once the specific movements are identified, a patient can learn what exercises and movement strategies that will reduce their symptoms. A disc bulge is often an MRI finding but it can also tells a story about hypermobility. For lumbar spinal stenosis, it is also common for a person to have symptoms while their spine is in relative extension. The Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Model helps a practitioner deliver this important message to engage with accurate patient education.

Pain Education Models for Better Patient Education

There you are, as a clinician, with a patient's eyes glaring at you for a reason. WHY do they hurt? It made me uncomfortable in my early years, but later, I learned that sharing your 'probable' diagnosis is essential. As a chiropractor, we are…

Can MRI findings predict lumbar instability?

Goal of the Study? Vertebral slippage (spondylolisthesis) can occur in the ageing spine. In listhesis, one vertebra is either forward or backwards relative to its adjacent vertebral partner in the vertebral column. In this research study [1.Magnetic…
