Moses Chiropractic Knows Anatomy Well, Knows Your Spine Well

Your West Palm Beach chiropractor knows your spine! Moses Chiropractic understands anatomy.

Knowledge of the spine’s anatomy is continually at the forefront of your chiropractor’s mind as you and each spine pain, neck pain, back pain patient comes into the practice! It is so exciting! (Are you not you happy someone finds it exciting?)

LEARNING ANATOMY IN SCHOOL

When we were in school, we’re all guilty of learning only to pass a test. When in professional school, such learning is more important than ever since it will influence everyday work. (How much do you remember from your high school or college days?) An international survey of chiropractors and anatomists discovered that chiropractors thought that a higher level of anatomy teaching during chiropractic education was advantageous for clinical practice, permitting better understanding, application, and analysis of anatomical information to substantiate a clinical decision in their daily clinical practice. (1) An Australian report of chiropractors compared their knowledge of anatomy to that of chiropractic students. The chiropractic practitioners reported that they knew their anatomy and proved it in a test showing their knowledge. This was contrasted to the same in their chiropractic student counterparts. The chiropractors demonstrated that they retained their knowledge of anatomy - and knew they did! – contradicting the hypothesis that chiropractic practitioners may not retain it after school. Knowledge of anatomy is utilized daily in chiropractic practice, and chiropractors know their anatomy. (2) Your West Palm Beach chiropractor does! We will be happy to talk about it!

SPINAL ANATOMY KNOWLEDGE PUT TO USE IN CHIROPRACTIC CLINICAL PRACTICE

Performing spinal manipulation daily utilizes knowledge of the spine’s anatomy every day. The most ordinary reasons people said they sought chiropractic care were low back pain (49.7%), neck pain (22.5%), and extremity issues (10.0%). The most common treatment they received were spinal manipulation (79.3%), soft tissue therapy (35.1%), and formal patient education (31.3%). (3) Spinal conditions get plenty of attention from chiropractic patients and their chiropractors, of course! But fortunate side effects of chiropractic care materialize in the medical literature as well like potential cardiovascular benefit. In a placebo-controlled, assessor-blinded, randomized trial, researchers described the immediate effects of upper thoracic spine manual therapy on cardiovascular autonomic control of musculoskeletal pain patients (ie, back pain, spine pain, neck pain, etc.). The researchers explained that musculoskeletal pain intensified the risk of cardiovascular events. (4) Come experience these benefits of chiropractic treatment based on spinal anatomy knowledge.
