As always, the wellbeing of you and your family is our highest priority at Null Chiropractic. 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. COVID-19 has not changed our sanitation procedures, but we are emphasizing our commitment to keeping everyone as healthy as possible.
We wanted to detail some of our sanitation and cleaning measures for you as well as further steps we are taking to screen patients and limit interactions to increase safety in our office.
What we are doing
These include our normal protocols. We are adding extra thought to keeping everyone as healthy as possible.
- The office is being thoroughly and regularly sanitized.
- We use hand sanitizer or wash our hands between each adjustment.
- We wipe down our tables and use new paper for each patient.
- We are giving specific, scientific adjustments so each nervous system functions optimally to boost immunity against all germs and viruses.
What this means for you
We’re implementing extra precautions to reduce interactions at the office between you and other patients.
- We will be calling all scheduled patients prior to their appointment to determine if care is necessary that day.
- Patients with pre-existing lung diseases or other risk factors for infection may be postponed if able to ensure their safety.
- Pre-screening via phone will be performed to determine the necessity of care and help protect against the spread of illnesses.
- We ask that only the patient receiving treatment enter the office if possible.
- Pre-screened patients should wait in their vehicles until called into the office.
- We will be billing by mail instead of collecting at the time of service.
Kansas Gov. Kelly signs Executive Order No. 20-16
On Saturday, March 28, 2020, Governor Kelly signed Executive Order No. 20-16, establishing a statewide stay home order. EO No. 20-16 requires all individuals within the state of Kansas to stay in their homes or residences unless performing as essential activity.
Included among the essential activities are:
- Seeking medical care
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.
Additionally, EO No. 20-16 states:
No individual leaving their home in order to perform an activity or function allowed under this order shall be required to carry or present any letter, identification card, or other paper proving they are allowed to leave their home
You will not need a notice from our office to travel to your appointment.
- 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 arent 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.

If you are feeling unwell, we ask that you please take steps to safeguard others and remain at home.
