Decompression. These days, most people think that’s a word that refers to stress relief; i.e. “Let’s go out for a walk and decompress.” or “I sure need to decompress after such a long day at the office.” Chiropractors know, however, that decompression is a practice that they use each and every day, one that makes millions of patients feel better after their visit.
Technically, decompression practice refers to that which uses intermittent traction to reduce pressures within the discs of the spine to help resolve issues such as disc herniation, disc bulge, disc protrusions, and degenerated discs.
In more simple terms, the spine is stretched and relaxed intermittently in a controlled manner, which can pull the herniated or bulging disc material back into the disc and, researchers maintain, also promote the passage of healing nutrients into the disc.
So, perhaps in a way, spinal decompression does relieve stress. At least, it conquers the stress involved with feeling bad, which can truly impact the daily lives of pain sufferers.
Nevertheless, many victims of back pain are helped by spinal decompression therapy. Not only is pain relieved, often immediately, but this therapy promotes an optimal healing environment for bulging, degenerating, and herniating discs.
Often, however, it’s difficult to explain to a patient how decompression works and why it is to their advantage to partake of such therapy.
ddd Spinal Decompression Models
Spine models can assist with this dilemma. How better to understand the workings of the spine than to have a movable model of it right in front of you? With Dynamic Disc Design’s (ddd) various models of the spine, you can show patients why they’re experiencing pain and how it is that you’ll help them.
These carefully handcrafted models are about as accurate as you can find and can detail both normal and pathological problems found in the spine. Patients can actually see and feel a bulging disc or other spine problem and can visualize what happens when decompression therapy is rendered.
The common medical poster can’t do that nor can those static models of old, but the revolutionary models produced by ddd can overcome the challenges chiropractors have in getting their patients to understand the complexities of the spine.
The result of good patient education – whether you’re a chiropractor, physical therapist, spine surgeon, or anyone else who deals with spine issues – is a client that truly understands why a particular treatment, such as spinal decompression, is good for them and why they should continue their treatment.
This leads to better patient retention and, in many cases, referrals from satisfied patients as well.
Those who’ve used Dynamic Disc Design’s spine models can attest to their quality and usefulness. “The level of detail and anatomical accuracy are impressive, and patients are greatly benefitted by being able to see the area in question move dynamically,” Dr. Dale MacDonald recently noted. “An outstanding tool for patient education, and quite frankly worth every penny.”

Positive reviews from Dr. MacDonald and other medical professionals note that the models are essential to spinal decompression therapy success. Patients walk away with a clear understanding of their problem and the things they can do to keep their spines feeling strong and healthy and, of course, a happy, satisfied, and healthy patient is the aim of every doctor!
