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

Gross. Macroscopic. Microscopic. Topographical. Sounds like we are discussing geography or something, but it’s really human anatomy. Anatomy is a 2000+ years old study. The ancient Greeks started it long ago! Understanding human anatomy is critical to healthcare practitioners…and their patients! Anatomy knowledge usually was through dissection, but today novel technology allows knowledge of the body without it. (1) Your Millville chiropractor is well-trained in anatomy. Your Millville chiropractor’s knowledge of anatomy informs your treatment plan from exam to nutrition to treatment for Millville 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 vary: 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 1 study. If they were motivated to learn, they did better in anatomy. (2) Your Millville chiropractor was highly motivated to learn anatomy!

ANATOMY IN SCHOOL: Technology

Challenging the effect of technology on anatomy knowledge, researchers shared videos with chiropractic students as extra 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 obliges a solid knowledge foundation of musculoskeletal anatomy. Chiropractic school curricula is created to enhance anatomy knowledge each year of the program. Remembering the knowledge when useful in clinical practice is the target. A survey of chiropractic students found that they showed significant increase 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 observing how the knowledge is utilized in the clinical context enhanced students’ learning and motivation to learn. (6)

ANATOMY IN PRACTICE

Anatomy has been one of the main preclinical subjects in chiropractic education. Its significance is well-known. Linking 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 stated that the most applicable 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 relevant to clinical practice.
