Latest Resource From Dynamic Disc Designs Helps Physicians Educate Patients

The United States continues to spend more money on health care than other nations. Low back pain is the number two most common reason Americans visit their doctor---second only to colds and flu. Patients with low back pain or other spinal issues will now be able to see, touch and thereby better understand common spinal disc problems.

Issaquah, WA (PRWEB) April 12, 2010 -- Dynamic Disc Designs and QuickMedical have teamed up to provide the latest in patient education resources to help physicians educate their patients about spinal disc issues.

With the time constraints faced by health care professionals, it is often difficult to effectively communicate the complex issues associated with spinal disc problems and lower back pain; Dynamic Disc Designs can help.

With help from their U.S. distributor, QuickMedical, Dynamic Disc Designs (ddd) is offering to physicians and health care educators the most realistic disc models that include many important demonstrative concepts. Now more than ever, spinal conditions that often physicians don't have time to talk about can be explained more quickly and with better understanding.

"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," said Anthony T. Yeung, MD, Endoscopic Spinal Surgeon at the Desert Institute for Spinal Care in Phoenix, AZ.

Dynamic Disc Designs recently signed QuickMedical as a U.S. distributor for the educational models. "The demand for the models in orthopedic clinics, medical schools, hospital resident programs and universities necessitated that we utilize the expertise of a major medical equipment and supply company like QuickMedical for our U.S. sales and marketing," said Dr. Jerome Fryer of Integrated Health Centre in Nanaimo, BC and the developer of the Dynamic Disc Design models. "Fundamentally, we are a company driven by the latest spine research. I am pleased to offer educators and doctors realistic dynamic disc models with six degrees of natural freedom."

Robert A Zielke of the Zielke Law Firm in Seattle, Washington said, "Finally, a realistic spinal model that can demonstrate real-life spine injuries and importantly, show load related pain problems like disc herniations, disc bulge, nerve root and dural sac encroachment with a dynamic deforming load sensitive model. This model can explain high intensity zones (active inflammation), for example, of annular tears on MRI with a see-through vertebral lens and view of the intervertebral disc. A powerful educational tool for any Personal Injury Lawyer involved with spinal related injuries."

About Dynamic Disc Designs:

All Dynamic Disc Designs models have been identically copied from natural specimens with their natural details. The currently featured LxH model (with the H referring to herniation) is a specimen with minimal osteophytosis. This specimen was carefully chosen to help demonstrate intervertebral motion in clinical and educational settings and importantly reveal earlier signs of degenerative disc disease These models are simply much closer to the real thing, allowing curious minds to understand more clearly the dynamic nature of intervertebral motion.
