chiropractor-adjusting- patient

To Our Valued Practice Members:

As the COVID19 affects our communities, our work as your family chiropractor continues. We are vigilant; heeding all
federal, state and local health advisories; and where it makes sense, adjusting efforts to safeguard the health and safety
of our staff and practice members.

To date, we have taken the following precautionary measures as well as have some insightful tips for you on boosting
your immune system:

1. Health Survey Upon Entry:

As you may have noticed, we are having every client answer 2 questions before walking in:

1) Have you expressed any of the following symptoms within the last 14
days: Fever, cough, headache, shortness of breath, migraine, nausea, sore throat, loss of taste OR smell?
YES or NO
2) To your knowledge, have you been in contact with someone with known or suspected COVID19?
YES or NO

If the answer is YES, then we will need to reschedule your appointment to protect you along with the other practice
members

2) Increasing Practice Hygiene:

All doctors and staff are using hand sanitizer on a FREQUENT basis between practice
members as well as frequent hand washing for a minimum of 20 seconds. For those that feel more comfortable bringing
in their own towels instead of using our face paper, we encourage you to do this as well. Seriously, a couple clients have
brought towels from home to use when going face down on the table and we are completely OK with that. We will also
have latex gloves at the front for those that would rather put those on when entering the office rather than touching
anything with their bare hands.

3) Increasing Routine Cleaning:

In line with our longstanding commitment to provide a safe and clean environment, our
office has increased the frequency of cleanings, paying close attention to high touch areas such as traction beds, adjusting
bays, iPads, hand baskets, and warm-up stations. We have placed Clorox wipes all over the office for you to feel more
comfortable to wipe down any equipment before use, and please know we will continue to wipe down very frequently
between patients.

4) Diffusing On-Guard in the Practice:

On Guard is a “protective blend,” used to support the immune system and help kill
off harmful bacteria and viruses. It contains a blend of five essential oils, including: wild orange peel, clove bud, cinnamon
bark/leaf, eucalyptus leaf, & rosemary leaf/flower. If you need some for your home, we have extras at the office and our
office manager can get this for you to diffuse at home. We will continue to diffuse this throughout the office indefinitely
to help reduce bacteria in the air.

5) Maintain Appointments:

We strongly encourage all of ours clients to please maintain their adjustments. Whether you
skip the exercises or the massage tables due to your comfort level, we want to make sure you are getting your
adjustments (especially your cervicals) as the research has shown time and time again the strong relationship between
the immune system and the nervous system. The latest research in 2013 showed a link between the immune system cells
(macrophage) and the sympathetic nervous system. A specialty of coming to a Corrective Chiropractic office is our
specificity on the adjustments and how they are proven in this study to balance the sympathetic nervous system.                                                                                                                                                  Our best defense is building a titanium immune system to give us the best chance of not getting sick or mitigating symptoms if we do get sick.

 

6) Expanded Hours:

As we stated above, getting adjusted is one of the best things to be doing right now to build a
healthier immune system. However, we understand many of our clients either have compromised immune systems, are
over 60 years old, or have some respiratory issues that may limit them from coming into the office during busy times because of COVID19.
Our doctors are going to be working extended hours to make sure that their community is well taken care of so whether you need to come early, over lunch,                                                                        or after the shift, please let us know and one of the doctors will gladly accommodate to help you. There is no additional expense to these special times as our
doctors truly want to make sure you are well adjusted and being the healthiest version of yourself.
Please call or text the office at 404-355-5499 if you have any questions, concerns, or if you would like to speak with a
doctor on strategies to boost your immune system.

There is nothing more important to us than the health and safety of our practice members and staff. We will continue to
provide information about what steps we are taking during COVID19 to address this evolving situation but please rest assured, we are on
this.

In Health,
Shelby Wheaton
Office Manager
