We are OPEN as usual.  Also, patients may schedule a telehealth visit with one of our doctors.   We closely follow local and national public health updates.  Both Memphis and Bartlett list us as an essential business.  Additionally, attending a doctor’s visit is considered to be an essential activity.  As the situation with COVID-19 evolves, we will post updates to our operations on this page.  

The following are ways we are working together to protect your health:

  • If you or someone in your household has had recent fever, cough, worsening asthma, or shortness of breath, please first call our office to discuss rescheduling your appointment. (source)
  • To maintain social distance, drivers and other guests who do not have an appointment should wait in their car as opposed to the reception area. (source)
  • All staff in the office are screened twice daily to ensure symptom-free status. (source)
  • Doctors and therapists will continue to wash their hands prior to each individual patient visit. (source)
  • Treatment tables and equipment will be cleaned between each use.
  • Public use surfaces (counter tops, door knobs, etc) are regularly cleaned.  

We have chosen the above strategy based on a combination of biomedical and societal factors.  Since we are a healthcare facility that does not directly treat infectious disease, we are able to focus in-office procedures on treatment of musculoskeletal disorders (spine, muscle, and movement-related health problems).  If a patient has both a musculoskeletal disorder and symptoms of infectious illness, our doctors may advise the patient over the phone or via telehealth rather than in-office consultation.  As such, patients may continue to access chiropractic care at this office.  We are committed to adhering to evidence-informed precautions to prevent both personal exposure to and community spread of COVID-19.
