Back To Health COVID-19 Resource Center
Our office has been working hard to keep the tables clean between patients and we believe that hand washing is one of the best deterrents to the spread of disease. When you arrive, you will find tables cleaned with EPA approved cleaning solutions and we will have washed our hands or used alcohol hand sanitizer before we enter your adjusting room.
We are currently in PHASE 1 which is BE KIND. We ask that if you have symptoms, stay home and we will do the same. We ask that you walk into the office with a mask to be asked the COVID questions (called triaging) but if you have a condition which prevents you from breathing comfortably with the mask on, you are welcome to take the mask off in the individual adjusting rooms as the state mandates allow for.
These are extremely trying and stressful times. We are learning the truth about this virus as time marches on. We're doing our best to make sure you are comfortable in the office so that you can continue to receive your Chiropractic adjustments. I hope this page is helpful and enlightening and enhances your ability to make sound, science based decisions for you and your family.

This is very interesting too..."Table 3 shows the types of health conditions and contributing causes mentioned in conjunction with deaths involving coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death."
Take a look at this mask demonstration.

This one is a must watch...
In a world where it's nearly impossible to separate the news from the fake news, I think this video from a Pulmonologist working in an ICU in New York City is perhaps the most important video that I have seen giving real world advice on what is really going on and what to do. Do yourself a favor and take the time to watch this video!
Have you ever heard of the New England Journal of Medicine?
Universal Masking in Hospitals in the Covid-19 Era
List of authors: Michael Klompas, M.D., M.P.H., Charles A. Morris, M.D., M.P.H., Julia Sinclair, M.B.A., Madelyn Pearson, D.N.P., R.N., and Erica S. Shenoy, M.D., Ph.D.
"One might argue that fear and anxiety are better countered with data and education than with a marginally beneficial mask, particularly in light of the worldwide mask shortage, but it is difficult to get clinicians to hear this message in the heat of the current crisis" ...

This study tested 455 contacts of an "Asymptomatic Carrier" to determine how contagious an asymptomatic carrier actually was.
STUDY METHODS: "455 contacts who were exposed to the asymptomatic COVID-19 virus carrier became the subjects of our research. They were divided into three groups: 35 patients, 196 family members and 224 hospital staffs. We extracted their epidemiological information, clinical records, auxiliary examination results and therapeutic schedules."
RESULT: "No severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infections was detected in 455 contacts by nucleic acid test."
CONCLUSION: "In summary, all the 455 contacts were excluded from SARS-CoV-2 infection and we conclude that the infectivity of some asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 carriers might be weak."
IN SHORT: ZERO people in direct contact with an Asymptomatic Carrier of COVID-19 became infected. So, if you have symptoms including a cough, a fever or shortness of breath STAY HOME or Get to the hospital if breathing is difficult JUST LIKE WITH ANY OTHER INFECTION like The Flu! BUT, based on this study, if you're not symptomatic it is VERY unlikely that you can infect someone else AND it is very unlikely that you can BE INFECTED by an asymptomatic carrier.
By the way, do you know what we call an asymptomatic carrier? -- A HEALTHY PERSON fighting off an infection with their innate ability and immune system.

This is a very interesting, albeit different point of view, with credible scientists, doctors and mathematicians and epidemiologist's opinions.

Not feeling well in a mask?
Danish Mask Study: No Benefit
Published: November 18, 2020
The Danish randomized controlled trial on the real-world efficacy of face masks against coronavirus infection – the first of its kind – has now been published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. As expected, the trial found no statistically significant benefit of wearing a face mask. The study used “high-quality surgical masks with a filtration rate of 98%”.
For political reasons, three major journals had previously refused to publish the Danish study.Meanwhile, US researcher Yinon Weiss has updated his charts on mask mandates and coronavirus infections in various countries and US states. The charts indicate that mask mandates have made no difference, or may even have been counterproductive.
People who want to avoid a coronavirus infection must avoid situations in which they can get infected. If they cannot avoid such situations, and if they belong to a high-risk group, they should discuss prophylactic and early treatment options with their doctor, which according to international studies may reduce the risk of severe disease and hospitalization by up to 90%.
