Dermatologic Pathologies

November 26, 2010

Review of Mosby’s Pathology for Massage Therapists, 2nd edition, by Salvo and Anderson. Within the course of Dr. Johnson.

I found this chapter to be nice review for skin pathologies. While chiropractic care does not involve as global skin contact as massage therapy, it is still important to recognize these pathologies. Visual inspection is a major component of chiropractic physical examination. Therefore, it was not a lost for me to have this review of common dermatologic pathologies. Some of these pathologies being: impetigo, folliculitis, tinea pedis, HSV, eczema, rosacea and contact dermatitis. The pictures are helpful, even though not very delightful.
