Here’s a quick sample composite from last week’s photo shoot I did for a local chiropractic office. The doctors posed the model to demonstrate four stages of spinal degeneration.

I was contacted by a nice chiropractor, Dr. Smith, that had previously created a poster similar to the above photograph showing the many stages of spinal degeneration.  His was drawn up by an artist and shows in much more detail (both text and illustration) how our bodies can “de-evolve” over time.

While my image is not for sale, Dr. Smith sells his illustration in poster form for a very reasonable amount.  To purchase this poster and/or to learn more about his products, visit his website at
