The world is grappling with a pandemic, but that doesn't mean your needs have changed. If you rely on regular chiropractic care in Jacksonville FL, chances are you've had to make a different kind of adjustment during this time.

Chiropractic and COVID-19 in Jacksonville FL

This crisis has made many people reevaluate their needs, but we believe that chiropractic care should never be put on the back burner. Here's how we're responding to the current global crisis:

Chiropractic Care is Essential

The American Chiropractic Association declared chiropractic care essential early in the outbreak, which allowed many chiropractors to remain open to their patients. We're observing social distancing and other public safety guidelines to ensure the safety of everyone in our office and would love to see you come in for your first or your regular appointments.

Chiropractic Care is Flexible

There's a way to avoid losing progress and keep up with your regular chiropractic care all from the comfort of your own home. If you or a loved one is considered high risk for COVID-19 or you simply don't feel comfortable leaving your home just yet, we completely understand. We'd like to do everything we can to support you from a distance.

We can still assess your symptoms, evaluate your progress, and give you advice on how to manage your condition with range-of-motion therapies and postural stretching techniques, all from a virtual platform.

While we never recommend trying manipulation and adjustments on yourself or others, you can do some gentle, low-impact at-home exercises and stretches to relieve pain and improve your mobility. Call Dr. Wilson and he'll direct you toward the best at-home techniques until you can see him again for your regular appointments.

Chiropractic Care Can Keep You Healthy

There's no link between chiropractic care and COVID-19 protection, but it does keep your body healthy and supported with reduced inflammation, lessened pain, and increased circulation. Everyone can benefit from keeping their bodies in tip-top shape during this time.

We understand how crucial it is to stay healthy as the virus remains a threat. We'd like to continue to be a part of your health and wellness journey in any way possible.

If you'd like more information, need some guidance, or want to schedule an appointment, give our friendly staff a call at either of our two Jacksonville, Florida, locations.
