COVID 19 Updates

We will be updating this page as we learn of new information regarding chiropractic care.

To our Elite Chiropractic Family,

Things have been dramatically changing over the last few months and it is our commitment to keep serving and providing a safe environment where anyone can come to make sure their spine is functioning and healthy. We will be open and available by appointment only, as we were deemed essential by the state of Washington.

We have increased sanitation in numerous ways to ensure that we are acting responsibly, in accordance with the CDC. Here are just a few of the steps we have taken:

  • We have switched to a digital check-in process.

  • We are checking the temperatures of patients upon check-in.

  • New patients can fill out all of their paperwork online in advance of appointments or use a tablet in our office that we sanitize after each patient use.

  • Waiting room chairs have been moved to ensure social distancing between each patient.

  • Masks, disinfectant wipes, and hand sanitizers are made available at the front desk.

  • We are staggering appointment times so that there are never too many people in tight quarters.

  • All of our chiropractic tables, chairs, and other surfaces that see regular contact are constantly being sanitized between patients.

Here are a couple of the reasons chiropractic care has been deemed essential and will remain open during this time:

  • If Chiropractic adjustments help regulate the nervous system, and the nervous system controls the immune system, then chiropractic adjustments will help to maintain a healthy immune system.

  • Here is some research to affirm this: In 1989 “Ronald Pero, Ph.D., chief of cancer prevention and research at New York’s Preventative Medicine Institute as well as a professor of medicine at New York University” followed up that discovery. He found over a three-year study, looking at the immune system of the following patient types: People receiving chiropractic care, some having cancer and additional terminal illnesses, and the general public not under chiropractic care: patients under chiropractic care for 5 years had a 200% boosted immune system compared to those who were not under chiropractic treatment and 400% when compared to individuals with cancer who did not receive care.“Pero R.” “Medical Researcher Excited By CBSRF Project Results.” The Chiropractic Journal, August 1989; 32.

  • Low back pain is the number one cause of disability worldwide. These people often end up in hospitals, which are currently at maximum capacity, and it is our duty to help those hospitals from being overwhelmed.

REMINDER!

If you feel any of the following symptoms, please do not come to your appointment:

  • Fever

  • Dry cough/Respiratory issues

  • Shortness of breath

  • Extreme fatigue

We are committed to maintaining a safe and clean environment for you to visit, so we can continue promoting health and wellness. We are in this together! It’s not forever, but for now.

In great health,

Your Elite Chiropractic Team
