The models I have purchased from Dynamic Disc Designs are the most anatomically accurate and useful spine education models on the market today. An essential piece for patient education in spine.
There is a wealth of misinformation amongst both health care providers and the lay public regarding spine related disorders. As a clinician who practices as a Primary Spine Practitioner, my patient population is almost entirely comprised of neck and low back complaints. Contemporary evidence-based management of these patients requires the adoption of a biopsychosocial model of care. In turn, many of the psychosocial risk factors associated with poor clinical outcomes have become potentially modifiable targets for treatment. Fortunately for clinicians, their most powerful and influential tool for managing the aforementioned risk factors, is their ability to effectively communicate with their patients. Having an accurate and interactive model available to help convey pathomechanical and pathophysiological concepts is therefor extremely valuable. I believe the ddd models enable me to quickly and effectively educate my patients, allowing me to better manage inappropriate attitudes and beliefs concerning their diagnosis, treatment options, and subsequent prognosis.
Your Professional LxH Model is the most detailed and useful spinal disc model I have ever encountered. It illustrates not only the normal anatomy of a Lumbar disc segment, but its innervation, pathoanatomy of annular tears, and how the tear progresses to disc herniation when the spine is loaded in flexion and extension. This model is extremely valuable in helping me explain my patient’s pain and how I plan to address the pathoanatomy with my endoscopic minimally invasive techniques.
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.
