Dynamic spine models designed by chiropractors. Our spine models are scientifically accurate, showing details in the discs, lumbar, pelvis and cervical spine. They can be used to demonstrate a range of clinical conditions which contribute to back pain or discomfort. Our models use an elastomeric two-part intervertebral disc design to show important anatomical features so are perfect for chiropractors, osteopaths, spine surgeons, physiotherapists and medicine students. See the back under compression and conditions such as disc herniation, epidural punctures and more.

Understanding and Managing Low Back Pain: Patient Education and Dynamic Disc Models

Patient Education | Prevalence and Impact Low back pain (LBP) is a widespread condition, with about 80% of people experiencing it at least once in their lifetime.[1.Acute and Chronic Low Back Pain] It ranks as the fifth most common reason…

Restricting Lumbar Spine Flexion During Lifting More Efficient

Introduction When intervertebral joints bend, they can't hold as much weight. Limiting lumbar spine flexion may lower the chance of low-back disorders (LBD). However, lifting retraining programs encouraging less lumbar flexion does not always…

Subchondral Bone and Osteoarthritis – Reviewing the Microenvironment of Synovial Joints

Goal of the Study? Pain from osteoarthritis is widespread. However, it is also common for osteoarthritis not to cause pain. So what gives? One anatomical microenvironment that appears to play a critical role is the subchondral zone of joints.…
