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 did
it long ago! Understanding human anatomy is vital
to healthcare practitioners…and their patients! Anatomy study usually
was via dissection, but today new technology permits
knowledge of the body without it. (1) Your Montreal chiropractor is
well-trained in anatomy. Your Montreal chiropractor’s knowledge of
anatomy informs your treatment plan from exam to nutrition to treatment for Montreal 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 are different: first year dental
students were more anxious than chiropractic students; second year
chiropractic students appreciated 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 Montreal
chiropractor was highly motivated to learn anatomy!
ANATOMY IN SCHOOL: Technology
Challenging the effect of
technology on anatomy knowledge, researchers presented videos with
chiropractic students as extra resources for their study.
Of the 71% of students who chose to study anatomy on
video in addition to dissection, 82% stated the
videos were “helpful” and 73% viewed them as “an enjoyable way to
study”. (3) That is 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 enhance anatomy knowledge every
year of the program. Remembering the knowledge when useful
in clinical practice is the goal. A survey of chiropractic
students revealed 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, particularly
for topographical anatomy and neuroanatomy. (5) It seems that
learning anatomy in the classroom combined 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 value is well-known.
Connecting clinical skills to anatomy knowledge in the late
years of school help 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 next in line of importance. Anatomy is highly relevant
to clinical practice. (8) Your Montreal chiropractor at
