Modern Patient Education and Pain Science Research has shown language is important and key for patient recovery. Showing a patient the standard spine model with the dangerous looking big red bulge doesn't inspire confidence in healthy, normal spinal movement. We decided to change that!
Our model features
a relaxing blue nucleus
full spinal movement in all planes
a nucleus that both extrudes AND reduces with spinal extension - give patient hope that recovery can come from movement and that disc changes are normal!
This model is hand made in Canada by a Clinician and Researcher Dr. Jerome Fryer
What do clinicians think about the Blue Nucleus Model?
When I saw this on social media, I knew I HAD to have it for my lumbar patients education! It didn't disappoint! The model is well made, accurately moves, and everything about the model is high quality. It's even better than it's made by a clinician and researcher
I first saw Dr. Fryer's Dynamic Disc models online. We starting communicating back and forth and he realized that his models were so accurate that he created an annular tear, AND the nucleus both extruded and reduced with normal spinal movement! I suggested he create a blue nucleus model so patient's wouldn't be alarmed at the normal red "danger" sign. I love using this in patient education when I am giving them repeated end range loading resets! You should too!
