Chiropractors see more skin than any other primary health provider, and have a perfect opportunity to make early diagnoses of serious skin conditions, such as malignant melanoma. In order to provide comprehensive patient care, chiropractic physicians must have a solid foundation of dermatology. Essentials of Dermatology for Chiropractors is the first dermatology text designed specifically for chiropractic students and professionals. Essentials of Dermatology for Chiropractors is a full-color reference on general dermatology for chiropractors and chiropractic students. With over 200 full-color photos and illustrations it is also a valuable resource for understanding the natural and complementary treatments available for many common skin disorders. Including a completely cross-referenced listing of conditions and treatments, this text is an ideal source of relevant dermatological information for chiropractic college dermatology instructors, chiropractic students, and practicing chiropractors. PowerPoint slides available for instructors.
