Our Denver Chiropractors will be OPEN this week (week of March 23)

We are open this week (week of Monday, March 23)and will operate a normal schedule. We are here to help you and pledge to continue to be here for you during this Covid-19 / novel coronavirus crisis. Call us at 303.300.0424 to get in touch with us.

The 50 US State Chiropractic Boards, including the Colorado Chiropractic Board of Examiners (which falls under the control of the State of Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies) are in agreement that chiropractors are essential healthcare workers and therefore should remain open.

Barring a specific order from Governor Polis stating that chiropractic offices should close, we will stay open. We will continue to follow all safety and social distancing procedures that we’ve had in place for weeks now.

(Note: The recent order by Governor Polis that suspended elective procedures applies to surgical procedures or other such procedures that require ventilators, anesthesia machines, and personal protective equipment. This is to preserve such equipment for critical care. Since none of our procedures requires any of this equipment, this ruling does not relate to what we do in our office.)

Denver Chiropractic Center Covid-19 update

We have great concern and empathy for everyone who is dealing with this difficult and unprecedented viral pandemic, both locally and globally. We do intend to keep our office open during this Covid-19 crisis. (Of course if any federal or state government entities order that we close, we will.)

As we stay open we are implementing a few procedural changes to practice social distancing within our office. In order to do that we will:

  • Limit the number of daily appointment spots available
  • Bring patients into treatment rooms and out of the waiting room as quickly was we can
  • Continue thoroughly disinfecting each treatment room after each patient

We ask of you:

  • If you are sick, have a cough or have a fever please don’t come in (please stay home entirely).
  • If you have been exposed to anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19, please don’t come in (again you should self-quarantine)
  • Please try to come as close to your appointment time as you can (we want to avoid having several people in our waiting rooms).

We still fully intend to operate our normal schedule. As I said last week, we have always taken steps to prevent spread of viruses: flu virus, norovirus, various other stomach viruses, and cold virus (which is also a coronoa virus).

These things are almost always circulating in some form or fashion. We will continue to take steps to prevent the spread of this new virus. These steps include hand sanitizing after each patient visit, table disenfecting, and so forth. We do have gloves in the office and if you would prefer that Dr. Samantha or myself wear them during your treatment, just ask.

We will continue to follow all advisories and directives from the state and Federal governments.

Please make sure to stay home if you are sick, wash your hands, and avoid large crowds. Move away from heavy sneezers and coughers. Use hand sanitzer and good hygeine practices.

With some common sense and persistence we will all get through this together.

Here is today’s 1-Page Health News:

Diet: Foods That Raise/Lower Diabetes Risk. The current research notes that a diet rich in whole grains, lean dairy, fish, nuts, and fresh vegetables and fruit is associated with a reduced risk for type 2 diabetes. On the other hand, a diet featuring high amounts of red and processed meat, refined grains, and sugar-sweetened beverages is linked to an elevated diabetes risk. National Institute of Public Health (Pakistan), December 2019

Exercise: Exercising in Very Cold Weather May Harm Lungs. Researchers from the University of Alberta warn that lung function can worsen over time when they are exposed to cold weather, especially during exercise. Experts advise that if you work out in the cold, it’s a good idea to do the following: perform an indoor warm-up to help dilate the lungs, reduce your exercise intensity to allow the lungs more time to warm and humidify the air, and shield your mouth from the cold air during exercise. University of Alberta, January 2020

Chiropractic: Spinal Pain and TMD. Using data from the Korean National Health Insurance Review and Assessment database, researchers report that nearly half (48%) of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) patients also have spinal pain. Additionally, the more severe a patient’s TMD symptoms, the more likely they were to also have neck pain or back pain. Past research has demonstrated that dysfunction in the cervical spine can cause or contribute to TMD, and treatment to improve function in the upper spine, such as chiropractic care, can reduce jaw pain and associated disability. BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, December 2019

Mental Attitude: Peppermint and Dementia Risk. Among a group of 948 seniors, researchers observed that those unable to smell peppermint and other strong odors were more likely to develop dementia in the following five years. Neuroepidemiology, January 2020

Wellness/Prevention: Losing Tongue Fat May Ease Sleep Apnea. In a study involving 67 obese patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) who participated in a weight loss program, researchers found that a reduction of weight in the tongue contributed to about 30% of the benefit in OSA improvement associated with weight loss. American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, January 2020
