Due to the progression of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in the United States, I wanted to update you on additional procedures we are implementing at ChiroCenter One Chiropractors in Grand Forks to keep you and your family safe.
First, ChiroCenter One is open and encourages all patients who are symptom free to keep up with your chiropractic adjustments! The premise behind chiropractic in the first place is that your body heals itself, and chiropractic treatments remove interference that decrease your body's ability to heal itself. Studies have shown a benefit to the body's immune system and health in general through chiropractic adjustments as well.(https://health.usnews.com/
That being said, we would ask all patients who are experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath, as well those patients with family members experiencing these symptoms, to please reschedule your appointments and visit www.ndhealth.gov to see if your symptoms warrant a COVID-19 test.
We have always upheld high standards for cleanliness, but have implemented more frequent cleaning throughout the day. This includes inside and outside door handles, counter-tops, and areas in the waiting and treatment rooms. We have always used face paper on the adjusting table as an additional measure of safety, but will now be sanitizing surfaces on the table and in the adjusting room after EVERY patient.
Although no correlation has been made thus far regarding pets and COVID-19, Nico the office dog will be staying at home for the time being. So many people liked to pet and touch her that I thought this would be the best course of action for her, other patients, and my family at home.
If you have any other questions or concerns regarding our response to Coronavirus, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 701-775-0223.
