Chiropractic Care during Covid… Why It Remains Safe!
During these uncertain times of Covid-19 as cases and deaths continue to climb in the United States, Chicagoans continue to work from home as their employers put their health and safety first. As more Chicagoans work from home, their work from home (WFH) setup may not be ideal. It is important to identify how your WFH setup can maximize productivity and efficiency, so you do not suffer an injury (or injuries) as you continue to work.
Also, if you are working out from home, ensuring that you are stretching and/or engaging your core to support your body through the various movements/exercises is important to prevent injury. If an injury occurs, and you decide to see a chiropractor to improve posture, decrease your aches and pains, and prevent future episodes from occurring, these post will address questions to ask/address prior to your first/initial visit.
Before visiting a chiropractor in these uncertain times, one must ask the appropriate questions to ensure one’s safety prior to entering his/her office. You should ask the front desk staff/doctor questions surrounding sanitizing and disinfecting protocols, mask requirements, spacing appointments, and contactless payment options. These concerns will ensure your safety when presenting to the office.
Despite the ratings/reviews this chiropractor may have online pre Coronavirus, it is important to address this so that you feel comfortable to get the help you need. Any office is hopefully going to address this and ask you questions prior to you presenting as they want to protect themselves too.
These measures should satisfactorily suffice before visiting a chiropractor for an injury (or injuries) you suffered. If an office cares about your safety and the safety of others, both you and the chiropractor you decide to visit ensure that the necessary precautions are taken to get the care you need during these difficult times.
