Fernandina Beach Chiropractor is Well Trained in Anatomy to Care for Your Spine

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

ANATOMY IN SCHOOL: Motivation

Learning new material 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; 2nd year chiropractic students valued anatomy education greater than med students. Chiropractic students’ motivation and anatomy performance were interwoven in 1 study. If they were motivated to learn, they performed better in anatomy. (2) Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor was highly motivated to learn anatomy!

ANATOMY IN SCHOOL: Technology

Testing the impact of technology on anatomy knowledge, researchers shared videos with chiropractic students as bonus resources for their study. Of the 71% of students who chose to study anatomy on video as well as dissection, 82% said the videos were “helpful” and 73% saw them as “an enjoyable way to study”. (3) That’s 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 designed to enhance anatomy knowledge every year of the program. Retrieving the knowledge when useful in clinical practice is the target. A survey of chiropractic students revealed that they showed 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 combined with seeing how the knowledge is applied in the clinical context boosted students’ learning and motivation to learn. (6)

ANATOMY IN PRACTICE

Anatomy has been one of the main preclinical subjects in chiropractic education. Its importance is well-known. Linking clinical skills to anatomy knowledge in the late years of school benefit chiropractors as they enter clinical practice upon graduation and beyond.  (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 the next two top important courses. Anatomy is highly pertinent to clinical practice.
