There Hasn’t Been a More Crucial Time to Get Chiropractic Care
I know your inbox is full of Coronavirus alerts and updates right now.
While there is a lot of valid fear and panic going around, realize that we have to constantly remind ourselves to focus on what we CAN do to navigate our way around this pandemic.
We are taking extra precautions in our office, which I'll explain in detail below for those who are interested.
Did you know...
During the 1918 Influenza Pandemic, medical doctors treated 93,590 cases of influenza patients, with 6,116 deaths - that’s a mortality rate of 6.53% or approximately 1 out of every 15. On the other hand, 4,735 patients were under chiropractic care, with only 6 fatalities - a mortality rate of 0.12% or approximately 1 out of every 789.
In the past 32 years in practice, many our patients have reported that chiropractic care has helped them improve their allergies, improve their immune system (they don’t catch as many colds), and improve their overall health.
There is research that suggests patients under chiropractic care experience improved immune system function.
Our team at South Valley Chiropractic is dedicated to your overall health, wellness, and comfort.
We have disinfectant wipes in each room, and by each adjusting table. It’s our policy to wipe down all tables and equipment before and after each patient.
For those who would be more comfortable, you can let us know once you arrive for your appointment that you'll be waiting in your car and we can call/text you when it's your turn to go back.
I also want to give you some tips on how to boost your immune system to protect against microorganisms of all kinds, not just the one that everyone is so concerned about right now.
I'll bet you have a friend or family member that seems to never get sick, right? And it's probably not because they quarantine themselves or avoid all human contact. I'm sure their immune system has a lot to do with it. That's why different people can be exposed to the same germs, and some may be just fine while others come down with whatever it is.
My daily regimen that I encourage you to adopt as well for optimal immune function is healthy eating, exercise, rest, chiropractic care, and supplements. A good bio available multi vitamin is a place to start before adding others. There are specific herbs too that will be able to fight off viral infections. We recommend Wei labs as our source since they are science based and effective.
If you have any questions about supplements or anything else you could do for your immunity please let me know.
Yours in good health,
Richard Monsour D.C.
