Essential Healthcare Service Statement
As we adapt to these new times with daily changes of COVID-19, the safety of our patients, staff, and doctors is our uppermost priority. We understand the concern of our community and clients, which is why we have created specific policies and upgraded our sanitation requirements per clinic.
As we circumnavigate this situation, Corrective Chiropractic is relying on direction from the CDC, FEMA, WHO, and local and national chiropractic organizations. Recently, the International Chiropractors Association, put out a statement that chiropractic care is an essential healthcare service to keep patients from seeking treatment at physicians offices and hospital, thus helping to minimize the spread of COVID-19. . ICA President, Stephen P. Welsh, DC, FICA stated, “While Coronavirus-19 has everyone’s attention, it cannot be forgotten that health promotion and non-opioid pain management through chiropractic adjustments of the subluxation is essential and should not be curtailed or restricted because of this pandemic.”
In the jurisdictions and states where possible and safe for everyone, Corrective Chiropractic clinics will remain open. We know and have seen many clients that have needed chiropractic care and we feel responsible to support these clients to prevent them from opioids and clogging the medical system. We know that many will continue to have healthcare needs that can be helped through chiropractic care, and we feel a responsibility and commitment to help our patients.
We are closely monitoring recommendations and protocols established by the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as state and local health departments. As more information develops about COVID-19, we are committed to changing our position if circumstances change.
As a precautionary measure, we have created a policy manual to be followed by each Corrective Chiropractic clinic that creates proper sanitation and social distancing protocols
