Dear Nasa Chiropractic friends, family, and patients,
We wanted to take a moment to address the concerns of the Coronavirus pandemic with you. As you may know, the Coronavirus is a significant public health crisis. While for most individuals, the illness is not a large personal risk, the risk of the Coronavirus relates to how contagious it is and how quickly it can spread, especially before symptoms appear. Due to these factors there is a potential for an exponential spread of the virus which can create a situation where the healthcare system becomes overloaded and unable to take care of the most vulnerable population.
Nasa Chiropractic always implements a high level of safe sanitary practices, but we have implemented even more procedures to disinfect the clinic making it less likely that we become a place where the Coronavirus could spread. However, the very nature of what we do and the contact we have with our patients puts our facility into a category of higher potential exposure.
While we continue to see patients and are implementing even more strict disinfecting techniques, our treatment philosophy and our hours of operation may change in response to the changing public health environment created by the Coronavirus pandemic. I know some of the steps taken in regard to public health may seem drastic to some people (including myself to an extent). However, I do believe taking the necessary precautions to slow the spread of the Coronavirus is the best way we can serve our patients and our community at this time.
As of now, we recommend that all of our patients follow the recommended CDC guidelines as related to personal behavior and activity. This includes taking the necessary steps to prevent the potential spread of the Coronavirus:
- Frequent and proper washing of hands.
- Decreasing unnecessary public contact.
- Staying home if you are sick or showing symptoms.
- Covering cough and sneezes with a tissue.
- Wearing a face mask if you are symptomatic.
- Cleaning and disinfecting well. If you are in a higher risk population (older adults and people with other underlying medical conditions) we strongly urge you to decrease your public contact to only places of utmost importance.

If you are in a higher risk population, we would ask you to protect yourself from potential exposure by limiting your time in public places, including our clinic. While many of the conditions we treat can cause significant pain and discomfort, no musculoskeletal condition we treat is life-threatening or emergent. If it is best for you to not come into the clinic under the current circumstances, the doctors at Nasa Chiropractic will gladly have phone consultations to discuss the best home and self-care treatments for our patients.
Additionally, we are implementing a simple screening process, which we hope will reduce potential exposure risks. We will be asking our employees and patients some basic questions, including:
- Have you had a recent fever?
- Do you have any respiratory symptoms?
- Have you had recent travel?
- Have you had any potential corona virus exposure?
Thank you for your understanding and consideration of others during this time.
