Careers in Chiropractic Health Care: Exploring a Growing Field

Chiropractic is the second largest physician-level health profession in the United States, with chiropractors providing care to at least 20 million patients annually. As chiropractic health care has been proven to be both effective and cost effective for many musculoskeletal conditions, particularly back pain, the inclusion of Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) in a variety of health care settings is likely to continue to increase. Surprisingly, there is little readily accessible information on chiropractic as a career path. This book provides concise yet comprehensive information about career paths, training, and professional roles in chiropractic for students considering chiropractic as well as health care practitioners in the field. Written in an easy-to-read style, Careers in Chiropractic Health Care: Exploring a Growing Field serves students, those in non-chiropractic health fields, and general readers considering chiropractic as a career change option. The chapters explain the training and specific licensure requirements for chiropractors in all 50 U.S. states and provide information useful to health care professionals for referrals and management of patients using chiropractic care.

Functional movement disorder : an interdisciplinary case-based approach

This book is a practical manual for clinical practitioners seeking to take an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and management of functional movement disorder (FMD). It discusses case vignettes, reviews the diagnostic approach, provides an update on available treatments, highlights clinical pearls and details references for further reading. Organized into three parts, the book begins with a framework for conceptualizing FMD - including its historical context, the biopsychosocial model and an integrated neurologic-psychiatric perspective towards overcoming mind-body dualism. Part II then provides a comprehensive overview of different FMD presentations including tremor, dystonia, gait disorders, and limb weakness, as well as common non-motor issues such as pain and cognitive symptoms. The book concludes with chapters on updated practices in delivering the diagnosis, working with patients and care partners to achieve shared understanding of a complex condition, as well as an overview of evidence-based and evolving treatments. Supplemented with high-quality patient videos, Functional Movement Disorder is written for practicing neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, allied mental health professionals, and rehabilitation experts with an interest in learning more about diagnosis and management of FMD.
