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

Gross. Macroscopic. Microscopic. Topographical. Sounds like we’re discussing geography or something, but it is really human anatomy. Anatomy is a 2000+ years old study. The ancient Greeks did it long ago! Understanding human anatomy is vital 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 Malverne chiropractor is well-trained in anatomy. Your Malverne chiropractor’s knowledge of anatomy informs your treatment plan from exam to nutrition to treatment for Malverne 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; 2nd year chiropractic students appreciated anatomy education more 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 Malverne chiropractor was highly motivated to learn anatomy!

ANATOMY IN SCHOOL: Technology

Challenging the impact of technology on anatomy knowledge, researchers shared videos with chiropractic students as additional resources for their study. Of the 71% of students who chose to also use video to learn in addition to 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 necessitates a solid knowledge foundation of musculoskeletal anatomy. Chiropractic school curricula is created to enrich anatomy knowledge each year of the program. Remembering the knowledge when useful in clinical practice is the goal. A survey of chiropractic students found that they showed 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 seems that learning anatomy in the classroom linked with observing how the knowledge is applied in the clinical context boosted students’ learning and motivation to learn. (6)

ANATOMY IN PRACTICE

Anatomy has been one of the key preclinical topics in chiropractic education. Its importance is well-known. Connecting clinical skills to anatomy knowledge in the late years of school help chiropractors as they start clinical practice upon graduation and after.  (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 the next two top important courses. Anatomy is highly relevant to clinical practice. (8) Your Malverne chiropractor at Malverne Health & Wellness brings everything together: examination findings and anatomy to treat and alleviate your pain.
