In light of the recent Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we realise it is important to keep appropriate perspective and balance the risk by taking measures to limit the spread and protect particularly the vulnerable from infection without inciting undue fear.
Chiropractic and Osteopathy are fully regulated health professions and our practice has robust infection control measures in place. Our benches are disinfected regularly, the team are all using hand sanitising gel and headrest paper is changed between every patient. We have asked our team to remain vigilant in keeping high standards of hygiene at all times. We have also been asked by our regulator to monitor the advice regularly issued to the public and healthcare professionals by Public Health England which we continue to do on a daily basis.
As per the government guidance, we ask that if you do not feel well and have a temperature or flu-like symptoms that you self isolate for 7 days at home from the onset of your symptoms. Do not visit your G.P and there is no need to contact 111 unless your symptoms worsen or last beyond the 7 days. Please postpone your appointment with us until after your isolation period has finished to help minimise the spread of this virus in the UK and protect the vulnerable from exposure such as the elderly who attend the practice.
Please follow the current government guidance and focus on what you can do to keep yourself healthy and well. Regular and thorough hand washing is good practice at all times but particularly in reducing your risk of catching this virus. We would also recommend focusing on good nutrition eating fresh fruit and vegetables and taking any recommended supplementation to help boost your immune system to fight any virus regardless of this recent outbreak. Keep yourself active, ensuring you are well hydrated and only access the news to gain information in relation to planning how to deal with any changes in daily life.
