Chiropractic Care and COVID-19: What You Should Know

These are difficult times, and you may be wondering if you can see your doctor in these days of stay-at-home orders and social distancing. If you’ve been getting chiropractic care for your back pain, for instance, are you still allowed to visit your chiropractor?

The answer is yes! You can still go to the chiropractor during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you’re one of the 16 million Americans who suffer from back pain, then this is indeed good news.

At AllCare Chiropractic, with three Maryland locations, our chiropractors understand that this is a stressful time for everyone and are dedicated to providing you with the best pain relief solutions. We’re open and are following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

Chiropractic care is an essential service

According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, chiropractors are considered essential workers because back pain is a serious medical condition. In addition to back pain, our team at AllCare Chiropractic offers chiropractic care to treat neck and shoulder pain, headaches and migraines, sciatica, and work and auto accident injuries.

When you need to schedule a chiropractic appointment 

In Maryland and elsewhere, chiropractors treat patients who need care for a number of acute and chronic health conditions, including neurological and musculoskeletal injuries and painful degenerative conditions. That hasn’t changed, even in the time of COVID-19.

If you’re experiencing painful conditions like sciatica or symptoms like pain and numbness, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team at AllCare Chiropractic.

For your safety as well as that of our staff, you may want to hold off coming to the office for services that aren’t critical. If you’re not sure, please contact us so we can discuss how best to proceed.

What to expect when you visit

Chiropractic care is more than chiropractic adjustments. When you visit AllCare Chiropractic, we use diagnostic imaging, like X-rays, and perform exams to determine the source of your pain. We can refer you to other medical providers if we discover a problem that needs specialized care.

If your problem relates to an issue with your alignment, then it generally takes a series of visits to address the source of your pain. In time, you should notice significantly less pain and stiffness and experience increased flexibility and range of motion.

At AllCare Chiropractic, our doctors are dedicated to your whole-body health. We’re working hard and taking all necessary precautions to provide you with a safe, clean environment so you can get the chiropractic care you need even now.

Call us today at one of our three convenient locations in Bowie, Laurel, and Annapolis, Maryland, or schedule an appointment on our website.
