Due to the notice of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the DFW, we wanted to update you on procedures we are implementing to keep you and your family safe during this time.
**As we work hard to keep everyone safe and practice social distancing, we are asking ALL patients to wait in your car. When you arrive in the parking lot, give us a call and we will check you in. When a table or room is available for you we will call you to come into the office.
Please advise us if you have traveled internationally in the last 14 days or have been in close contact with another person who has been diagnosed with or under investigation for COVID-19, and whether you have a cough, fever or shortness of breath.
Prior to the outbreak of COVID-19, our team members would disinfect the adjusting tables before and after shifts, and periodically throughout the day as needed. We have always had disinfectant wipes available to our Practice Members at the adjusting tables. You are more than welcome to use these at any time. Our office is professionally cleaned each week. Due to the recent pandemic, we following strict cleaning policies for the protection of both our staff and our patients. Each staff member maintains rigorous personal hygiee standards as well preparing for every patient ineraction. Our Doctors will also be washing thier hands frequently, using hand sanitizer, and cleaning the adjustment intrument with alcohol wipes.
We are using EPAs recommended disinfecants across the entire office. All adjusting tables and rooms are cleaned after every use (if not used cleaned every 10 mins.), and taking extra precautions to clean all surfaces of our office throughout the day, including: door handles, keyboards, countertops, computer screens, phone scanners, etc.
Each of our practice members have been instructed to wipe down thier tables before use and to place face paper down on the adjusting table prior to laying down for their adjustment. This regular use of face paper serves as an additional safety measure to protect the practice members that we serve.
What Can YOU Do Now to Protect Yourself:
1. GET ADJUSTED!
It is now more important than ever to stay on track with your weekly chiropractic adjustments. PREVENTION of sickness and dis-ease is key! In fact, we have several practice members receiving extra adjustments this month, to help keep them healthy. We are eager to keep you well-adjusted through this time. With specific, neurologically-based chiropractic care.
2. STAY ACTIVE & MOVING!
Movement is vital to proper immune function. Have you ever noticed how people tend to get more sick in the winter months? This is partially due to inactivity. Science shows that movement and active lifestyles increase immune function. Keep an active lifestyle through this time to promote better immune function.
3. AVOID FEAR & WORRY!
Fear and worry leads to stress. Stress leads to decreased immune function. Don’t allow fear to creep into your life and win. We don’t want to minimize the seriousness of this global event, however we also recognize the need to keep ourselves as healthy as possible through this time, to maximize our health and body function. Utilize relaxation techniques to stay at ease, spend extra time enjoying life with your family and friends, think about the positive in every situation, and take action steps towards better health that you have control over.
We are aware that this COVID-19 outbreak is an active and rapidly evolving situation. We will keep you up to date if there are any further changes in our procedures.
