Navigating the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Greetings!

Please note: Information in this message is accurate as of this writing, approximately 8am on Saturday, August 13, 2020.

We hope this message finds you well! The world continues to grapple with the enormous scale and human impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19), and our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the outbreak.

As licensed health care providers in New York State, our number one priority is and always has been YOUR HEALTH AND SAFETY. As such, we want to reinforce our procedures and commitment to protecting you, as well as our staff and doctors.

The protocols we have in place are based on guidance from the New York State Health Department and the CDC which are our usual and standard protocol. In light of these unusual circumstances, our protocols have evolved and expanded well beyond the recommended actions and intervals including sanitizing all surfaces that could come under human touch multiple times per hour.

If you have an upcoming appointment and have traveled internationally or have been to one of the quarantined states in the last 14 days, OR have had close contact with someone who has, please call us prior to your appointment. Further, if you have a fever, cough, muscle pains, malaise or loss of smell beyond a usual level, please first call your PCP’s office. If you do not have a PCP please call The Monroe County Department of Health at 585-753-5555! They will advise you on how to proceed. THEN, when it is feasible, give us a call to reschedule your appointment.

A note regarding immunity: As you know, it is your body’s electrical system (the nervous system) that controls and optimizes your immunity. Your nervous system is like an air traffic controller that directs the army of the immune system in detecting and eliminating invaders. The more powerful your immune system, the less likely you are to get sick. Simple. As you probably have guessed, when your immune system is not working the way it should, it’s really no different than having a 100 watt light bulb operating at 50% – as if it were stuck halfway on the dimmer switch. Does that make sense? We are not suggesting that NeuroStructural Chiropractic Adjustments (which is what we do in our office) is going to ward off coronavirus, or any other virus for that matter. What we are telling you is that it’s completely reasonable to suggest that a perfectly tuned nervous system can optimize your immunity and not only provide some shielding from coronavirus, but very likely all invaders. The other side of the equation is providing your body with what it needs functionally and nutritionally. You’re heard it a thousand times…get enough sleep, stay away from sugary foods and eat a well balanced diet, drink a lot of water, etc.

As we continue to navigate this situation, we will be in contact via our here, Facebook, email and via text and phone regarding changes in schedule and availability. Our offices are open normal hours unless informed otherwise. Thank you for being a loyal patient. As always, if you have any questions please ask. 

Perhaps most importantly, please keep an eye on yourselves, your family and your neighbors. IF YOU NEED HELP, we are a family, we here for you and will do whatever we can to assist you so please do not hesitate to ask.

Yours in Chiropractic,
Dr. Charlie, Dr. Stephanie, Anna, Eli and Lisa

*UPDATED!!!* The Best Mattress Value!

This is updated with a new link!

We are often asked what is the best mattress to purchase. Simply put, it is an important decision and there is a lot of misinformation out there. But, it doesn’t have to be hard. You don’t even have to go into the mattress store either. This is the one. See the links below for the 8″ thick models which are considered firm.

The Best Mattress!

The 8″: https://amzn.to/3zOiA2V

I know! Right? How can I recommend a mattress for this kind of money. Aren’t you supposed to spend a ton on a bed? Well, you can, but you don’t have to. I did. Full disclosure, I have a $3000 bed. It is great. It is also $3000. The bed I recommend is 90+% of the bed I have at less than 10% of the cost. Most people won’t be able to tell the difference. In fact, this bed is what my children sleep on (and I commonly fall asleep on myself). I will buy this in the future. You will need a solid base or a box spring or slatted base to place the mattress on. Here are the links for the box spring or slatted base if you have a metal frame:

Full Box Spring: https://amzn.to/2IhQa8N – Slatted Base: https://amzn.to/2EQwTuo

Queen Box Spring: https://amzn.to/2Wqqq3n – Slatted Base: https://amzn.to/2WqEo67

King Box Spring: https://amzn.to/2KaBURX – Slatted Base: https://amzn.to/2WI5eG5

So there you go. You have just saved $2500. Enough for a lot of other things for your health including chiropractic care! 🙂

C19 LATEST UPDATE 5/27/2021

HELLO AGAIN EVERYONE!

Please note: Information in this message is accurate as of this writing, approximately 8am on Thursday, May 27, 2021.

We hope this message continues to find you well! The world continues to evolve and manage the C19 situation as have we at ELEVATE Chiropractic.

As licensed health care providers in New York State, our continued priority is and always has been YOUR HEALTH AND SAFETY. As such, we want to reiterate our procedures and commitment to protecting you, as well as our staff and doctors.

The protocols we have in place based on guidance from the New York State Health Department and the CDC which are our usual and standard protocol have evolved.

The most notable change is the CDC edict that those who are vaccinated can abstain from mask wearing in some businesses and enclosed spaces. This however is not the case in any health office. As such, it is still mandatory for patients entering the building to continue wearing masks regardless of vaccination status. This will continue until further advisement is received from the CDC.

As per previous restrictions, if you have an upcoming appointment and you have had close contact with someone who has contracted C19, please call us prior to your appointment. Further, if you have a fever, cough, muscle pains, malaise or loss of smell beyond a usual level, please first call your PCP’s office. If you do not have a PCP please call The Monroe County Department of Health at 585-753-5555! They will advise you on how to proceed. THEN, when it is feasible, give us a call to reschedule your appointment.
