There are 7 ways that human beings learn information.
The 7 ways are known as the 7 learning styles and they include:
- Visual (spatial): prefer using pictures, images, and spatial understanding.
- Aural (auditory-musical): prefer using sound and music.
- Verbal (linguistic): prefer using words, both in speech and writing.
- Physical (kinesthetic): prefer using your body, hands, and sense of touch.
- Logical (mathematical): prefer using logic, reasoning, and
- Social (interpersonal): prefer to learn in groups or with other people.
- Solitary (intrapersonal): prefer to work alone and use self-study.
According to recent research visual learners are the largest group. This is important for you to understand when working with new patients to communicate ideas and understanding related to upper cervical care.
When conducting your report of findings with new patients the more effectively you can utilize visual demonstrations of the upper cervical misalignment the better.
But you also want to keep in mind the other learning styles.
We tend to default to our own learning style when presenting information so it’s important for you to understand what your learning style is so you know your tendencies. If you don’t already know your learning style you can take a learning style quiz here.
Let’s take a look at how you can utilize the 7 learning styles in your practice to effectively communicate upper cervical.
As the largest group within your practice visual demonstrations using pictures, images, and spatial understanding are critical to effective patient learning.
We have some excellent posters in our store that demonstrate the upper cervical misalignment for you to utilize in your report of findings that make a tremendous impact on visual learners including:
- The Effects of the Upper Cervical Misalignment Poster
- Posture Changes from an Upper Cervical Misalignment Poster
- The Upper Cervical Misalignment and the Brain Poster
- Blood Flow through the Upper Cervical Spine Poster
Utilizing these images as you describe the impact of the upper cervical misalignment on the health and life of your new patient can be extremely effective.
When conducting progress exams and also during your report of findings I would recommend a chart from Dr. Noel Lloyd that we also have available in our store here. The three phases chart pictured below is excellent at communicating how upper cervical care helps a person find fast relief, maximum recovery, and long-lasting results.
Using these types of posters and charts is a great way to connect with visual learners during your report of findings and progress exams.
