Re: Office Hours & Updated Procedure When Arriving at the Office for Treatment

Dear Practice Members,

We want you to know that we are praying for protection for you and your family during this time and eagerly looking forward to when this craziness is behind us and life gets back to normal.

We do not know what the coming week or two will bring so we are encouraging everyone who needs to, to get into the office this week. The office will be open tomorrow (Wednesday) and Thursday 8-11 am and 3-6 pm yet this week. Come in anytime between those hours.

Please call or text us upon your arrival and wait in your car. We will text or call you back as soon as it’s your turn to come in for your adjustment. This has been working great, is fast and efficient while reducing the number of people in the reception room at any one time. Please wash or sanitize your hands as soon as you come inside. Hand sanitizer is available at the front desk.

We are meticulously cleaning the tables with an anti-viral cleaner between each patient use, not permitting any sick patients to enter the building and as stated earlier minimizing the number of people in the building at any one time. We also have suspended doing spinal scans before adjustments to reduce time in the office. Every hour the countertops, door handles, light switches, toilets, etc. are cleaned. We are doing everything possible to protect you and keep the risk of any exposure as low as possible.

Remember to wash your hands frequently, get plenty of sleep, take your Agrisept, take supplements that support your immune system, do your spinal exercises and watch your posture if you’re working from home at a makeshift workstation. Hope to see you tomorrow or Thursday.

Sincerly,

Dr. John Madeira and Your Health Team at Madeira Chiropractic Wellness Center, Inc.

We have implemented the following changes to our practice until the threat of the virus has subsided:

A Message from Our Office Regarding Being Proactive and the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As a valued member of our Madeira Chiropractic Wellness Center, Inc. family, we appreciate the trust you place in us. As the concerns about the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) intensify, please know that we are taking steps to ensure your safety at home and when you visit us.

We are daily staying abreast of all recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), US Department of Health and the PA Department of Health.

In the clinic we have intensified our housekeeping and infection control procedures and being diligent with hand washing and use of hand sanitizers. We strongly encourage all patients to wash their hands when you first walk into the clinic. Most people who do get sick will only experience the typical signs of the common cold or flu. Those most at risk are seniors (and those of any age) who are immune-compromised such as those with heart, lung or immune disorders or are diabetic.

Please be reminded that one of the best ways to keep your immunity strong is with regular chiropractic care. Additionally, we will continue to keep you updated on everything you can do to be proactive at home to protect you and your family as more information becomes available.

Steps You Can Take Now to be Proactive in Preventing the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

  • Keep your immune system strong by getting regular chiropractic adjustments.
  • Increase the frequency of your chiropractic care between now and June 1, 2020.
  • Wash your hands often for 20 seconds with warm water and soap. Focus on thumbs and especially fingertips.
  • Get plenty of sleep each night. If you have difficulty sleeping, ask us to recommend a natural supplement to enhance your ability to sleep.
  • Eat a healthy diet and limit your intake of sugar as this is known to lower immunity.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth as much as possible.
  • Consider using preventive supplements to boost your immunity such as Agrisept-L, Elderberry (syrup or lozenges), probiotics and daily Vitamin C intake.
  • Avoid non-essential plane travel, avoid cruise ships.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid being around others if you become sick.
  • Cover your cough and sneezes with a tissue or elbow instead of your hand. Throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands afterwards.
  • Clean frequently touched objects and surfaces at home such as doorknobs, light switches, faucets, toilets and countertops.
  • Please note the CDC recommends that face masks only be worn by those who are sick.

Sincerely,

Dr. John Madeira and Your Health Team at Madeira Chiropractic Wellness Center, Inc.
