Essential Healthcare Service and Operation Statement
As I continue to respond to the ever-changing environment around COVID-19, the safety of our patients and staff is my highest priority. I understand that new information surrounding the changing landscape of our everyday routines has many feeling concerned.
As I navigate this situation, I am relying on guidance from national and local chiropractic associations and healthcare organizations to direct my actions. All healthcare is considered essential when it is provided to regain and maintain the health of the human body, and I am here to do just that.
Chiropractic is not a cure or panacea for anything, it only is a tool to help your body function as optimally as it can whether healthy or in crisis. Many, including the International Chiropractors Association, the American Chiropractic Association, and the California Chiropractic Association, view chiropractic care as an essential healthcare service that can not only help people in need during this time of Shelter in Place, but can also help decrease the demand on the hospitals and clinics for non-infectious conditions.
Therefore, I will remain open and I will provide chiropractic care for as long as I can safely. If that changes I will let you know by phone, email, and text. I know that many will continue to have conditions and needs that I can help through chiropractic care and I feel a responsibility and commitment to you.
I am 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. If other circumstances develop where am no longer able to provide care or I am called as a First Responder to help at other facilities, I will notify you.
Per healthcare guidelines, I have increased or implemented sanitary routines, monitoring of patients and general office routine protocols. I am following procedures outlined by the leading healthcare organizations and authorities within the medical community.

I also recommend patients follow guidelines issued by the CDC, and if you are feeling unwell, please take steps to safeguard others and remain at home.
To date, routine hygienic measures are the suggested best practice for prevention of viruses like the coronavirus. Wash your hands, but don’t make them raw. Don’t despise-Sanitize!
