Spanish Terminology for Chiropractic Care

Modeled after the way chiropractors or chiropractic assistants interact with patients, this convenient pocket guide helps those working in the chiropractic office to communicate more effectively and improve the quality of care delivered to Spanish-speaking patients. Discussing everything from salutations and case histories, to specific procedures and follow-up care, this highly portable handbook is easy to reference when taking a patient history or performing adjustments. Using simple, non-technical words, with both open-ended and yes/no questions, it includes a wide range of terms from all of the topics that are essential to communication in the chiropractic office. A pronunciation guide further assists readers in formulating explanations, instructions, and questions in Spanish.
