Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre Knows Anatomy Well, Knows Your Spine Well

Your Toronto chiropractor knows your spine! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre understands anatomy. Back in chiropractic school, your chiropractor learned a lot about anatomy of the spine and utilizes that knowledge daily. Knowing the anatomy of the spine 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’s so exciting! (Are you not you glad someone finds it exciting?)

LEARNING ANATOMY IN SCHOOL

When we were in school, we were all guilty of learning only to pass a test. Going to professional school, such learning is more important than ever since it will influence 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 information to support 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 rated their knowledge of anatomy and proved it in a test showing their knowledge. This was contrasted to the same in their chiropractic student counterparts. The chiropractors showed that they retained their knowledge of anatomy - and knew they did! – breaking the hypothesis that chiropractic practitioners may not retain it after school. Knowledge of anatomy is used daily in chiropractic practice, and chiropractors understand their anatomy. (2) Your Toronto chiropractor does! Just ask to find out more.

SPINAL ANATOMY KNOWLEDGE PUT TO USE IN CHIROPRACTIC CLINICAL PRACTICE

Performing spinal manipulation daily applies 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 received 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 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 patients with musculoskeletal pain (ie, back pain, spine pain, neck pain, etc.). The researchers stated that musculoskeletal pain intensified the risk of cardiovascular events. (4) Come experience these benefits of chiropractic treatment based on spinal anatomy knowledge.
