Essential Healthcare Service Statement

As we continue to respond to the ever-changing environment around COVID-19, the safety of our patients, staff and doctors is our highest priority. We understand that this is a difficult and uncertain time for everyone and that you may have some concerns

As we navigate this situation, Cannington Chiro is relying on guidance from national and local chiropractic associations and healthcare organisations to direct our actions. Many, including the International Chiropractors Association, view chiropractic care as an essential healthcare service that can be used by patients with a wide array of health conditions.

As a result, when and where possible, the Cannington Chiro clinic is open, and we remain committed to providing convenient and affordable chiropractic care in our local community . We know that many will continue to have healthcare needs that can be helped through chiropractic care, and we feel a responsibility and commitment to our patients.

We are 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. We pledge to communicate if our position needs to be modified as the COVID-19 circumstances develop.

Policy

As a precautionary measure, we have implemented increased hygiene routines, monitoring and operations protocols and are following clinic procedures outlined by healthcare organizations and leading authorities within the chiropractic profession.

Patient Support

We recommend patients follow guidelines issued by the CDC, and if you are feeling unwell, please take steps to safeguard others and remain at home.

IF YOU ARE SHOWING ANY SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19, HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH A CONFIRMED CASE OR HAVE TRAVELLED OUTSIDE AUSTRALIA IN THE LAST 14 DAYS, PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE CLINIC!

To date, routine hygienic measures are the suggested best practice for prevention of viruses like the coronavirus.

Frequently Asked Questions Q: Who Goes To a Chiropractor?

The answer is everyone from all walks of life. The common feature of chiropractic patients is that they wish to be proactive about their health and are sick of hearing
“it’s your age” or “learn to live with it”. The chiropractic patient participates in their return to health by exercising, concentrating on posture and correct spinal ergonomics.
They don’t tend to believe a tablet is going to realign a joint and do all the work.
