LEARNING ANATOMY IN SCHOOL

Going through school, we’re all guilty of learning just to pass a test. Going to professional school, such learning is more vital than ever since it will impact everyday work. (How much do you remember from your school days?) An international survey of chiropractors and anatomists found that chiropractors thought that a higher level of anatomy teaching during chiropractic school was beneficial for clinical practice, permitting better understanding, application, and analysis of anatomical material to substantiate a clinical decision in their daily clinical practice. (1) An Australian report of chiropractors compared their knowledge of anatomy to that of chiropractic students. The chiropractic practitioners rated their knowledge of anatomy and demonstrated it by taking a test of their knowledge. This was compared to the equivalent in their chiropractic student counterparts. The chiropractors demonstrated that they kept their knowledge of anatomy - and knew they did! – breaking the thought that practicing chiropractors may not keep it after a period of time. Knowledge of anatomy is utilized daily in chiropractic practice, and chiropractors know their anatomy. (2) Your Pensacola chiropractor does! We will be happy to talk about it!
