Welcome to my resources page.  The organizations on this page and their products and services are my personal recommendations for the devoted clinician who serves those dealing with musculoskeletal disorders.  I have been fortunate over my career to be exposed to a wide spectrum of clinical approaches, patient exercise and education tools, patient outcome platforms, and therapy product distributors.  One could certainly go a number of different directions to obtain what they need to function as a clinician, but these are some of the most helpful resources that I have experienced as the best of the best.  

 

I have obtained an affiliate relationship with some of these companies and therefore may receive a small commission upon your purchase.  I don't promote these products because of the affiliate relationship but rather because these products and services have shown to be most helpful and reliable in my experience.  I have, on your behalf, secured special rates and offers for you in some instances.  If you chose to purchase through my affiliate offers, you can be confident that you'll have a good experience, and, in addition, you'll indirectly be supporting the continuation of more great content from MCF!

DYNAMIC DISC DESIGNS

Handcrafted models with unparalleled anatomical detail designed for chiropractors, osteopaths, spine surgeons, and physiotherapists. Our dynamic models show movement and compression allowing the spine professional to demonstrate the causes of back pain. They show a multitude of spinal conditions including disc bulge, disc herniation, dynamic disc height loss in all six degrees of freedom. The models improve patient outcomes through building an understanding of which movements stress elements of the spine. Our anatomical lumbar models are dynamic in nature to show annular disruption in the case of an overload in flexion, for example. These models connect a patient’s low back pain with their own anatomy to reduce fears and find mechanical solutions.  I am an affiliate and I will earn a small commission upon your purchase.
