Chiropractic Models – Helping to Improve Outcomes

Chiropractic Models - Dynamic Disc Designs

Chiropractic Models help with outcomes.

Doctors of chiropractic use chiropractic models to educate patients on the anatomy in question. Often patients just want to know where and why it hurts and how can the chiropractor relieve the symptoms.

Pain can come from a few common spots in the spine. The lumbar or cervical discs, themselves, can cause pain and are known to house nerves primarily on the outside of the intervertebral discs but also can migrate into the core when degenerated.

Models that show this kind of pain have only been developed by Dynamic Disc Designs with a lens to see inside the disc contents. This type of pain usually presents with sitting and also in the morning upon first get up.

Other common painful anatomical sites include the facet joint which often presents with pain in those patients that have pain bending backwards or prolonged standing.

Chiropractic models can also be useful when they can create and audible cracking or snapping sound. The Oracle Model has been recently developed for chiropractors to help in the patient’s understanding of the adjustment. This innovative product can generate the audible release of a chiropractic adjustment.

When patients understand that flexion stresses the posterior (or back of) the discs where the delicate nerves exit, they make changes to their lifestyle to minimize harmful movements after treatment. Having patients understand this simple principle will aid in the doctor-patient team to get the best possible outcomes for treatment. Visible particles in the nucleus can be seen now and easily demonstrated with Dynamic Disc Designs models. Innovation to improve outcomes.

    At our chiropractic facilities, one of the keys to our patient education system is diversity in explanation.

    With Dr. Fryer’s DDD models, we provide uniquely specialized explanations that help our clients better understand the nature of their problems and how our care programs help them towards their own health goals.

    As no two clients are the same, using DDD models allows us to be diverse with our explanations to perfectly suit each clients individual condition.

    Our team takes pride knowing that each client leaves each visit knowing more than they came in with.

    Thanks to Dr Fryer and DDD models for helping to put us ‘on the map’ as the docs that take the time to listen, explain, and educate…even before our care programs begin.

    The dynamic disc design models that we have in our office are the single most important patient education tool that we use. The number of patients that tell us that they were told they have a bulging disc but never understood what it really meant until they saw these models is astounding. We even had a patient take one of our models and bring it to a deposition so that she could show the employers attorney why her pain was worse when she sits in better when she stands. She won, by the way, and then had to pass the model around the room so everyone could look at it. There’s absolutely no better model on the market. It is a must have. Thank you for helping our patients understand the true biomechanics of disc and spine disorders.

    I’ve used the lumbar model for several years now and I couldn’t imagine not having it. It’s wonderful to see how fast patients “get it” once they see the effect of joint loading on the annular tear. So much more effective than simply showing a picture!

    I have used the dynamic disc design model in my office for over four years with great success. Patients can easily understand how loading the disc (with flexion) causes them more pain. For many patients it “turns on the light bulb” for the first time into understanding why they hurt so much with sitting, bending, and other movements in their daily life. Thank you for the great model.

    You can use a poster or a tablet to educate your patients, but they will see an image on a poster or a tablet. If you use a 3d model, they will have a spine in their hands. There is not a minute to loose in a clinic and a DDD model is simply the best way to demonstrate back pain. I use the same model since 5 years and it is still in very good condition. Quick, visual, concrete, straight to the point.

    I have been using the LxH disc model for over 2 years now. The “I Get It Now” comment is a given when using the Dynamic Disc during a report of findings with the patient. Many times patient’s will remark that no other provider has explained their condition so well and in such a way they can actually see and understand their issue. The LxH model has just been a great addition for patient education.

    Patients want to know what is causing their pain and this model provides them with the answer. They get it immediately and after explains their treatment/solution they are ready to start care.

    The Dynamic Disc model enhances patient education and has been invaluable at explaining what happens with disk pathology. I have been using these models for many years and have not seen a better product on the market. Well done Dr. Fryer!

    The Dynamic Disc model has condensed my detailed report of findings to “this is your disc, this is what decompression therapy does, any questions?”.

    I have used the Dynamic Disc model for over 5 years. It has been an extremely valuable tool in educating my patients throughout their treatment. It clearly demonstrates what the patient’s problem is and what we can do to help treat them.. A well educated patient will usually follow your recommendations therefore making your practice outcomes more successful.
    Thank you DDD for making such an awesome product !!

    I would highly suggest to purchase these models for your practice or law firm. I have used the herniation models in trial and the ah ha factor is overwhelming. Being a non surgical spinal decompression specialist, the models have allowed me to explain the disc injury in such vivid detail, that patients have no issues writing checks to cover the cost of the therapies. I have basically sold my “old and outdated” models to young docs to make room for the Spine Education Models.

    Thank you so much and am so glad I bumped into you a number of years ago at the Parker Seminar in Vegas and hope to see you there again.

    In health,

    JT Anderson, DC
