Hollstrom & Associates Inc Knows Anatomy Well, Knows Your Spine Well

Your Largo chiropractor understands your spine! Hollstrom & Associates Inc understands anatomy. Back in chiropractic school, your chiropractor learned much about anatomy of the spine and puts that knowledge to use daily. Knowledge of the spine’s anatomy is continually at the forefront of your chiropractor’s mind as you and each spine pain, neck pain, back pain patient walks through the door! It is so exciting! (Are you not you delighted someone finds it exciting?)

LEARNING ANATOMY IN SCHOOL

When we were in school, we were all guilty of learning just to pass a test. Going to professional school, such learning is more important than ever since it will influence 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 instruction during chiropractic education was beneficial for clinical practice, permitting better understanding, application, and analysis of anatomical material to support 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 proved it by taking a test of their knowledge. This was compared to the same in their chiropractic student counterparts. The chiropractors showed that they retained their knowledge of anatomy - and knew they did! – contradicting the thought that practicing chiropractors may not retain it after school. Knowledge of anatomy is used daily in chiropractic practice, and chiropractors know their anatomy. (2) Your Largo chiropractor does! We will be happy to talk about it!

SPINAL ANATOMY KNOWLEDGE PUT TO USE IN CHIROPRACTIC CLINICAL PRACTICE

Performing spinal manipulation daily applies knowledge of the spine’s anatomy every day. The most common reasons people said they sought chiropractic care were low back pain (49.7%), neck pain (22.5%), and extremity issues (10.0%). The typical treatment they received were spinal manipulation (79.3%), soft tissue therapy (35.1%), and formal patient education (31.3%). (3) Spinal conditions get a lot of attention from chiropractic patients and their chiropractors, of course! But fortunate side effects of chiropractic care materialize in the medical literature as well like potential cardiovascular benefit. In a placebo-controlled, assessor-blinded, randomized trial, researchers described the immediate effects of manual therapy to the upper thoracic spine on cardiovascular autonomic control of musculoskeletal pain patients (ie, back pain, spine pain, neck pain, etc.). The researchers explained that musculoskeletal pain increased the risk of cardiovascular events. (4) Come feel these benefits of chiropractic treatment based on spinal anatomy knowledge.
