Hello Friends, Family, and Neighbors,
With the increasing spread of the coronavirus and its impact reaching our community, I want to share with you our thoughts on COVID-19 as your healthcare provider.
As always, the wellbeing of you and your family is our highest priority at Germantown Chiropractic Clinic. We continue to follow and apply health and safety regulations, regardless of season or sickness. This is how we ensure that our practice members can trust us, not only for chiropractic care, but for the office environment. We wanted to proactively inform you of all the steps we’ve taken in our clinic.
We wanted to detail some of our sanitation and cleaning measures for you, as we all try to make wise, positive choices. These include our normal protocols. We are adding extra thought to keeping everyone as healthy as possible.
What We Are Doing
- We are giving specific, scientific adjustments so each nervous system functions optimally to boost immunity against all germs and viruses.
- The office is being thoroughly and regularly sanitized.
- We use hand sanitizer or wash our hands between each adjustment.
- We disinfect our tables between each patient encounter.
- If you do not want to use the keypad, just ask the front desk to sign you in. We wipe down the check-in stations between each patient.
- For those of you concerned with sitting in waiting room, we will now allow you to wait inside your car. All you need to do is call as soon as you arrive. Once the doctor is ready, we will call you and you can go straight to a treatment room.
- Directing staff members who may not feel well to stay home. Currently, we have not had any unwell staff member.
- We are working to be more efficient, avoiding crowding in the office.
Just over 100 years ago, there was another pandemic: the Spanish Flu of 1918-1919. Invaluable statistics came to light in that difficult time about the value of chiropractic care and fully functioning nervous systems.
- Continue to get adjusted, so your brain and body can communicate without interferences.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Use an alcohol-based sanitizer.
- Keep away from others who are sick.
- Avoid touching handrails, door handles and other high traffic surfaces in public places.
- Avoid touching your face, nose, eyes, etc.
- Avoid non-essential travel.
- If you aren’t feeling well (even if it’s mild), stay home, rest and hydrate.
- Maintain your current nutritional and exercise schedule are prescribed or recommended by this office.
According to the CDC, if you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing, stay at home and call your healthcare provider immediately. Your healthcare professional will work with your state’s public health department and the CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19. If you are feeling unwell, we ask that you please take steps to safeguard others and remain at home.
We care about each of you so deeply and want you to know we are here for you. Please reply with any questions or call 901-757-9000 to make an appointment. We have your back!
Yours in Health,
Dr. Darrin Jessop, Dr. Kristen Cook, Dr. Brian Spiecha
