During this time of uncertainty, we will remain open and continue to offer our services to treat patients
in need unless instructed otherwise. Rest assured, we are taking precautionary steps as recommended by the American Chiropractic Association and the Minnesota Chiropractic Association which are based on the current CDC and MN Department of Health guidelines.
As stated by the ACA, Doctors of Chiropractic are primary contact healthcare providers who provide essential care, including, but not limited to, managing acute and urgent musculoskeletal conditions. These services are critical for helping triage and manage cases that otherwise may end up in urgent care and emergency rooms. Chiropractic helps keep healthcare providers, first responders and critical infrastructure in place, including transportation that supports healthcare and food supplies during this pandemic.
As per the MCA, we are recommending keeping and scheduling your appointments if you are suffering from acute musculoskeletal conditions only. We are asking that you please refrain from coming in to our office and enter a 2 week self-quarantine if you have or have come in contact with anyone with the following symptoms:
- Fever (+100.4)
- Cough (Productive or Non-Productive)
- Bronchitis or Respiratory Infection
- Sore Throat
- Shortness of Breath
- Digestive complains such as Vomiting or Diarrhea
- Severe fatigue not associated with travel, myalgia and/or arthralgia.
We are currently taking steps to do our part and prevent the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to monitor what our state and local health officials recommend and will update as things progress.
