Pensacola Chiropractor is Well Trained in Anatomy to Care for Your Spine

Gross. Macroscopic. Microscopic. Topographical. Sounds like we’re discussing geography or something, but it’s really human anatomy. Anatomy is a 2000+ years old study. The ancient Greeks did anatomy long ago! Aware of human anatomy is vital to healthcare practitioners…and their patients! Anatomy knowledge usually was through dissection, but today new technology allows knowledge of the body without it. (1) Your Pensacola chiropractor is well-trained in anatomy. Your Pensacola chiropractor’s knowledge of anatomy informs your treatment plan from exam to nutrition to treatment for Pensacola back pain relief. 

ANATOMY IN SCHOOL: Motivation

Learning new information can be intimidating. Healthcare and chiropractic schools are full of learning and students. Students’ reactions to learning anatomy are different: first year dental students were more anxious than chiropractic students; second year chiropractic students esteemed anatomy education greater than med students. Chiropractic students’ motivation and anatomy performance were interwoven in one study. If they were motivated to learn, they did better in anatomy. (2) Your Pensacola chiropractor was very motivated to learn anatomy!

ANATOMY IN SCHOOL: Technology

Testing the impact of technology on anatomy knowledge, researchers shared videos with chiropractic students as additional resources for their study. Of the 71% of students who chose to also use video to learn in addition to dissection, 82% said the videos were “helpful” and 73% saw them as “an enjoyable way to study”. (3) That is a good use of tech!

ANATOMY IN CHIROPRACTIC SCHOOL

Chiropractic puts anatomy to good use! Chiropractic requires a solid knowledge foundation of musculoskeletal anatomy. Chiropractic school curricula is created to enrich anatomy knowledge every year of the program. Retrieving the knowledge when useful in clinical practice is the goal. A survey of chiropractic students revealed that they demonstrated significant rise in knowledge throughout the program as expected. (4) Anatomy instruction in chiropractic education is similar in design, delivery and assessment, especially for topographical anatomy and neuroanatomy. (5) It seems that learning anatomy in the classroom linked with observing how the knowledge is utilized in the clinical context increased students’ learning and motivation to learn. (6)

ANATOMY IN PRACTICE

Anatomy has been one of the key preclinical subjects in chiropractic education. Its value is well-acknowledged. Connecting clinical skills to anatomy knowledge in the latter years of school benefit chiropractors as they enter clinical practice upon graduation and after.  (7) Surveyed practicing chiropractors reported that the most pertinent and applicable course for clinical practice in chiropractic school was neuroanatomy (100% agreement). Gross anatomy (99.2%) and histology (86%) were next in line of importance. Anatomy is highly pertinent to clinical practice.
