Cross Chiropractic Center Knows Anatomy Well, Knows Your Spine Well

Your Sandy Springs chiropractor understands your spine! Cross Chiropractic Center understands anatomy. Back in chiropractic school, your chiropractor learned a lot about anatomy of the spine and puts that knowledge to use daily. Knowledge of the spine’s anatomy is always at the forefront of your chiropractor’s mind as you and each spine pain, neck pain, back pain patient comes through the door! It is so exciting! (Aren’t you happy someone finds it exciting?)

LEARNING ANATOMY IN SCHOOL

When we were in school, we’re all guilty of learning just to pass an exam. When in professional school, such learning is more important than ever since it will affect everyday work. (How much do you remember from your school days?) An international survey of chiropractors and anatomists found that chiropractors thought that a higher level of anatomy teaching during chiropractic school was beneficial for clinical practice, allowing better understanding, application, and analysis of anatomical information 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 proved it in a test showing their knowledge. This was compared to the equivalent in their chiropractic student counterparts. The chiropractors showed that they kept their knowledge of anatomy - and knew they did! – breaking the thought that practicing chiropractors may not keep it after a period of time. Knowledge of anatomy is used daily in chiropractic practice, and chiropractors know their anatomy. (2) Your Sandy Springs chiropractor does! Just ask to find out more.

SPINAL ANATOMY KNOWLEDGE PUT TO USE IN CHIROPRACTIC CLINICAL PRACTICE

Performing spinal manipulation every day uses knowledge of the spine’s anatomy every day. The most common 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 experienced were spinal manipulation (79.3%), soft tissue therapy (35.1%), and formal patient education (31.3%). (3) Spinal conditions receive 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 reported on the immediate effects of upper thoracic spine manual therapy on cardiovascular autonomic control of patients with musculoskeletal pain (ie, back pain, spine pain, neck pain, etc.). The researchers stated that musculoskeletal pain increased the risk of cardiovascular events. (4) Come experience these benefits of chiropractic treatment based on knowledge of the spine’s anatomy.
