Largo 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 anatomy long ago! Understanding human anatomy is critical to healthcare practitioners…and their patients! Anatomy study usually was through dissection, but today novel technology allows knowledge of the body without it. (1) Your Largo chiropractor is well-trained in anatomy. Your Largo chiropractor’s knowledge of anatomy informs your treatment plan from exam to nutrition to treatment for Largo 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; second year chiropractic students esteemed anatomy education more than med students. Chiropractic students’ motivation and anatomy performance were intertwined in 1 study. If they were motivated to learn, they did better in anatomy. (2) Your Largo chiropractor was highly motivated to learn anatomy!

ANATOMY IN SCHOOL: Technology

Testing the effect of technology on anatomy knowledge, researchers presented videos with chiropractic students as additional resources for their study. Of the 71% of students who chose to also use video to learn 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

Anatomy is put to good use in chiropractic. Chiropractic requires a solid knowledge foundation of musculoskeletal anatomy. Chiropractic school curricula is designed to enhance anatomy knowledge each year of the program. Retrieving the knowledge when needed in clinical practice is the target. 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 appears that learning anatomy in the classroom linked with seeing how the knowledge is applied in the clinical context increased students’ learning and motivation to learn. (6)

ANATOMY IN PRACTICE

Anatomy has been one of the key preclinical topics in chiropractic education. Its significance is well-acknowledged. Connecting clinical skills to anatomy knowledge in the later 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.
