Paramus 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 started anatomy long ago! Understanding human anatomy is critical to healthcare practitioners…and their patients! Anatomy knowledge typically was via dissection, but today new technology allows knowledge of the body without it. (1) Your Paramus chiropractor is well-trained in anatomy. Your Paramus chiropractor’s knowledge of anatomy informs your treatment plan from exam to nutrition to treatment for Paramus 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; second year chiropractic students valued anatomy education greater than med students. Chiropractic students’ motivation and anatomy performance were interwoven in 1 study. If they were motivated to learn, they performed better in anatomy. (2) Your Paramus chiropractor was very motivated to learn anatomy!

ANATOMY IN SCHOOL: Technology

Challenging the impact 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 study anatomy on video in addition to dissection, 82% said 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 obliges a solid knowledge foundation of musculoskeletal anatomy. Chiropractic school curricula is created to enrich anatomy knowledge each year of the program. Retrieving the knowledge when needed in clinical practice is the goal. A survey of chiropractic students revealed 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, particularly 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 boosted students’ learning and motivation to learn. (6)

ANATOMY IN PRACTICE

Anatomy has been one of the key preclinical subjects in chiropractic education. Its importance is well-acknowledged. Connecting clinical skills to anatomy knowledge in the latter years of school help chiropractors as they start clinical practice upon graduation and beyond.  (7) Surveyed practicing chiropractors reported 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 next in line of importance. Anatomy is highly relevant to clinical practice.
