Auburn 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’s 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 knowledge usually was via dissection, but today new technology allows knowledge of the body without it. (1) Your Auburn chiropractor is well-trained in anatomy. Your Auburn chiropractor’s knowledge of anatomy informs your treatment plan from exam to nutrition to treatment for Auburn 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 vary: first year dental students were more anxious than chiropractic students; second year chiropractic students valued anatomy education greater than medical students. Chiropractic students’ motivation and anatomy performance were intertwined in one study. If they were motivated to learn, they did better in anatomy. (2) Your Auburn 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 bonus resources for their study. Of the 71% of students who chose to study anatomy on video as well as dissection, 82% stated the videos were “helpful” and 73% viewed 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 necessitates a solid knowledge foundation of musculoskeletal anatomy. Chiropractic school curricula is designed to enrich anatomy knowledge every year of the program. Retrieving the knowledge when needed in clinical practice is the goal. A survey of chiropractic students revealed that they demonstrated significant increase 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 linked with seeing how the knowledge is utilized 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 significance is well-known. Connecting clinical skills to anatomy knowledge in the later years of school help chiropractors as they start 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.
