COVID-19 Update in Minneapolis

From our Minneapolis chiropractor,

I wanted to send you some information as regarding your chiropractic care during this very important time in the public’s effort to control the spread of the coronavirus. While we are resuming some services it is not necessarily “business as usual” quite yet. We will be following the recommendations of the Minnesota Chiropractic Association (MCA) and American Chiropractic Association (ACA). Both have recommended the following:

“It is our recommendation only to see acute, musculoskeletal patients through the end of March. The reasoning behind this is to support "flattening the curve" while keeping those who can benefit greatly from chiropractic care out of Urgent Care and/or the Emergency Room.”

Please consider this when considering your need for care as against the need for continued social distancing. This is a judgment call I leave to you.

Additionally, the following recommendations are based on the current CDC and MN Department of Health guidelines. If you meet any of the following criteria you should cancel your appointment (or not schedule) and follow the advice to self-quarantine.

  • It is our recommendation that you, any patient or staff member not come into the office and enter a 2-week self-quarantine if anyone they have been in contact with exhibits any of the following symptoms:
