(Aren’t you glad someone finds it exciting?)

LEARNING ANATOMY IN SCHOOL

When we were in school, we were all guilty of learning only to pass an exam. When in professional school, such learning is more important than ever since it will impact everyday work. (How much do you remember from your school days?) An international survey of chiropractors and anatomists described that chiropractors felt that a higher level of anatomy teaching during chiropractic school was advantageous for clinical practice, allowing better understanding, application, and analysis of anatomical material to justify a clinical decision in their daily clinical practice. (1) An Australian study of chiropractors compared their knowledge of anatomy to that of chiropractic students. The chiropractic practitioners reported that they knew their anatomy and demonstrated it by taking a test of their knowledge. This was compared to the equivalent in their chiropractic student counterparts. The chiropractors demonstrated that they kept their knowledge of anatomy - and knew they did! – contradicting the hypothesis that chiropractic practitioners may not keep it after a period of time. Knowledge of anatomy is used every day in chiropractic practice, and chiropractors understand their anatomy. (2) Your Severna Park chiropractor does! Just ask to find out more.

SPINAL ANATOMY KNOWLEDGE PUT TO USE IN CHIROPRACTIC CLINICAL PRACTICE

Applying spinal manipulation daily applies knowledge of the spine’s anatomy every day. The most ordinary reasons people reported seeking chiropractic care were low back pain (49.7%), neck pain (22.5%), and extremity issues (10.0%). The typical treatment they experienced were spinal manipulation (79.3%), soft tissue therapy (35.1%), and formal patient education (31.3%). (3) Spinal conditions get a lot of attention from chiropractic patients and their chiropractors, of course! But positive side effects of chiropractic care emerge in the medical literature as well like potential cardiovascular benefit. In a placebo-controlled, assessor-blinded, randomized trial, researchers described the immediate effects of manual therapy to the upper thoracic spine on cardiovascular autonomic control of musculoskeletal pain patients (ie, back pain, spine pain, neck pain, etc.). The researchers explained that musculoskeletal pain increased the risk of cardiovascular events.
