Chiropractic Models – Helping to Improve Outcomes

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.
