Gross. Macroscopic. Microscopic. Topographical. Sounds like we’re discussing geography or something, but it’s really human anatomy. Anatomy is a 2000+ years old study. The ancient Greeks started anatomy long ago! Understanding human anatomy is vital to healthcare practitioners…and their patients! Anatomy study typically was through dissection, but today new technology allows knowledge of the body without it. (1) Your Williamson chiropractor is well-trained in anatomy. Your Williamson chiropractor’s knowledge of anatomy informs your treatment plan from exam to nutrition to treatment for Williamson 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; second year chiropractic students esteemed anatomy education more than med 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 Williamson chiropractor was highly motivated to learn anatomy!

ANATOMY IN SCHOOL: Technology

ANATOMY IN CHIROPRACTIC SCHOOL

Chiropractic puts anatomy to good use! Chiropractic necessitates a solid knowledge foundation of musculoskeletal anatomy.
