Per Governor Kelly’s Executive Order No. 20-52 on July 2th, 2020, face masks are required while obtaining services in the healthcare sector. This includes our office. Starting Monday July 6th, when we reopen after the 4th of July holiday, we kindly ask that you wear a face mask before entering our lobby.
Certain health conditions may prevent some people from wearing a face covering. For your privacy, you are not required to disclose your health information to other visitors in our office. As this is a health care facility, there may be patients present that cannot wear a mask. We would ask all our visitors to refrain from questioning other patients on their ability to wear a mask. For this reason, you are still able to wait in your car till your room is cleaned and ready if you choose to do so.
The executive order also details other exemptions, which will be observed in our office and are detailed below.
- Children under the age of 5 are not required to wear a mask and children under the age of 2 are requested to NOT wear a mask.
- Communicating with people who are deaf or hard of hearing where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication.
- Temporary removal may be required during examination and/or treatment
Chiropractic Care is Essential
Doctors of Chiropractic are included in the Kansas Essential Functions Framework and we will continue to see patients in-person for necessary care.
We offer care and diagnosis for a variety of issues while maintaining a safe practice atmosphere. This includes:
- Neck, back, and other joint pains
- Sharp and shooting pains
- Headaches, migraines, and sinuous issues
- Neurologic assessments
- Nutritional counseling
- Exercise advice
- Nutritional products
We have the opportunity to lessen the load on emergency rooms, hospitals, and other offices that are dealing with the current crisis. In addition, our screening process is designed to identify those at risk for COVID-19 and get them the help they need at an appropriate facility without seeing them in our office.
- 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 are not feeling well (even if its mild), stay home, rest and hydrate.
- Ensure you’re getting proper nutrition and maintain any exercise schedule as prescribed or recommended by this office as you are able.
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, call your healthcare provider immediately. Your healthcare professional will work with your states 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.
If you have any questions about any health care need or injury, please reach out to us. We would be happy to answer your questions, schedule you for an office visit, or point you to the right facility for your issue.
