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

Gross. Macroscopic. Microscopic. Topographical. Sounds like we’re talking about geography or something, but it is really human anatomy. Anatomy is a 2000+ years old study. The ancient Greeks did anatomy long ago! Understanding human anatomy is critical to healthcare practitioners…and their patients! Anatomy study usually was via dissection, but today new technology allows knowledge of the body without it. (1) Your Tonawanda chiropractor is well-trained in anatomy. Your Tonawanda chiropractor’s knowledge of anatomy informs your treatment plan from exam to nutrition to treatment for Tonawanda 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; 2nd year chiropractic students appreciated anatomy education greater than medical 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 Tonawanda chiropractor was highly motivated to learn anatomy!

ANATOMY IN SCHOOL: Technology

Testing the impact of technology on anatomy knowledge, researchers presented videos with chiropractic students as extra resources for their study. Of the 71% of students who chose to also use video to learn as well as dissection, 82% stated 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

Anatomy is put to good use in chiropractic. Chiropractic obliges a solid knowledge foundation of musculoskeletal anatomy. Chiropractic school curricula is created to enhance anatomy knowledge every year of the program. Retrieving the knowledge when needed in clinical practice is the goal. A survey of chiropractic students found 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, particularly for topographical anatomy and neuroanatomy. (5) It appears that learning anatomy in the classroom combined with observing how the knowledge is applied in the clinical context enhanced students’ learning and motivation to learn. (6)

ANATOMY IN PRACTICE

Anatomy has been one of the key preclinical subjects in chiropractic education. Its significance is well-acknowledged. Linking clinical skills to anatomy knowledge in the late years of school benefit chiropractors as they start clinical practice upon graduation and beyond.  (7) Surveyed practicing chiropractors stated 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.
