Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Dana J Lawrence, DC, MMedEd, MA (Palmer College of Chiropractic)
Description: This text examines the concepts and hands-on skills and techniques involved in the study of a number of different allied health careers. It looks at the core concepts for each profession and the basic scientific principles that govern them. The specific opportunities covered include chiropractic assistant, massage therapist, sports medicine assistant, physical therapy assistant, and personal professional trainer. There is also a general overview of health careers provided, with emphasis on good science and ethics.
Purpose: The purpose is to expose the reader to the key components involved in the different health careers. This can then help the reader to better decide which of these careers may be of greatest interest.
Audience: The book will be of greatest use among high school or college students interested in studying for a medical assistant career. It will be of use as well to admissions counselors and career counselors in liberal arts colleges. It may be useful as a marketing tool for the health professions represented.
Features: The book has a number of sections, starting with one that introduces health careers and one that describes the scientific principles in physical medicine. Each profession has its own section, and there is also information on the administrative work involved in each profession.
Assessment: This is a nice career planning text for anyone interested in working in allied health as an assistant. It is very open and generous in its discussion of each field, and it does a superb job of presenting difficult concepts at a level that the high school or early college reader can understand; it keeps the technical jargon down. This is packed with information, yet is easy to read. This book will find its place in most college and high school career placement centers.
