Murfreesboro Chiropractor is Well Trained in Anatomy to Care for Your Spine

Gross. Macroscopic. Microscopic. Topographical. Sounds like we’re talking about geography or something, but it is really human anatomy. Anatomy is a 2000+ years old study. The ancient Greeks did it long ago! Aware of human anatomy is vital to healthcare practitioners…and their patients! Anatomy study usually was via dissection, but today new technology permits knowledge of the body without it. (1) Your Murfreesboro chiropractor is well-trained in anatomy. Your Murfreesboro chiropractor’s knowledge of anatomy informs your treatment plan from exam to nutrition to treatment for Murfreesboro back pain relief. 

ANATOMY IN SCHOOL: Motivation

Learning new material can be intimidating. Healthcare and chiropractic schools are full of learning and students. Students’ reactions to learning anatomy are different: first year dental students were more anxious than chiropractic students; second year chiropractic students valued anatomy education more than med students. Chiropractic students’ motivation and anatomy performance were interwoven in one study. If they were motivated to learn, they performed better in anatomy. (2) Your Murfreesboro chiropractor was highly motivated to learn anatomy!
