Each year, millions of adults who are suffering from back pain head to their trusted chiropractor. Most probably aren’t sure why they hurt, they just know – thankfully – that their chiropractor can help them feel better. But wouldn’t it be nice if our patients better understood the complexities of the spine and why it is they feel like they do?
In most cases, what’s needed for more complete spine education is a well-made, detailed 3-D ligament injury model that can truly show patients where their problems occur and what needs to be done to fix those problems.
Dynamic Disc Design’s Classic LxH Lumbar Disk Model, for example, is ideal for demonstrating ligament injuries.
Such a model can assist patients in understanding the role of the vertebral discs, the shock-absorbing structures between each vertebra, and the invertebral discs, which hold the vertebrae together and act as cushions between those vertebrae.
It can also help them grasp the particulars of injuries to ligaments, the gristle-like tissue that surrounds the joints and attach bone to bone, and why these injuries happen.
Spinal ligament injuries account for many visits to the chiropractor and occur when the ligaments are stretched too far and too quickly. Often, an automobile accident, a sports injury, or another traumatic event is the cause.
The patient arrives in obvious pain and is looking for relief but often doesn’t understand what’s happened to them. After all, they can’t see their spine and what’s inside.
Use a ligament injury model to educate patients.
By using the LxH Lumbar Disc Model, however, patients can literally see what’s happening to their spine. The patient can then leave the office better able to understand disc herniation, thanks to this 3-D model that’s been touted as one of the best spine education tools available for not only educating patients but also for instructing the next generation of chiropractors.
Far superior to videos on YouTube, colorful posters, or written information that distributes medical jargon that’s hard for the patient to understand, the Classic LxH Lumbar Disc Model can literally be put into the hands of the patient, allowing them to “feel” their injury in a different way and helping them understand what chiropractic decompression therapy can do to ease their pain.
In addition, it helps the patient to grasp what it is they need to do on their own to aid in their healing. It can also assist orthopedists and spine surgeons in pre-surgery discussions with patients.
The realistic look and accuracy of the DDD models is what has convinced chiropractors and other medical professionals around the world that this is the tool they need. Furthermore, owners of the Classic LxH Lumbar Disc Model and other models made by Dynamic Disc Design note their durability.
If they are treated with care, they’ll last for many years, making them a sound investment for any chiropractic practice. In addition, the more models purchased, the lower the price, so those with multiple offices or multiple practitioners can garner a good deal on the purchase of several at one time.
