Update from Dr. Dusty
I want to let you know that Mattingly Chiropractic is committed to remaining open for business in order to care for the community during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.
Although residents of the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County are under “stay-at-home” orders, visiting Mattingly Chiropractic is still possible because traveling to a healthcare provider is classified as an “essential” activity.
As health officials work to curb the spread of the virus, keeping patients healthy is critical for three reasons: (1) to strengthen their bodily defenses against any illness and (2) to keep them healthy despite spending far more time in the home than they normally would (3) to prevent adding more patients in need of medical attention to our already-overloaded healthcare system.
For those reasons, I agreed to keep our doors open to care for our community. My staff and I feel fortunate for this opportunity to continue to care for patients’ health during this crisis. I am grateful to them for their dedication in showing up each day to help others during this time.
CDC Guidelines in Full Force
I also want to assure you that we are following all CDC guidelines for your protection and safety, including:
- Maintaining social distancing between patients
- Screening all patients for illness upon arrival
- Staff handwashing and disinfecting between patients
- Sanitizing treatment rooms and equipment between patients
- Regularly sanitizing individual staff work areas and restrooms
To serve the communities wellness needs, we are putting extra emphasis on nutritional products to fortify the immune system and keep the body healthy. To facilitate this, we offer no-contact curbside pickups of all nutritional products, as well as delivery by mail if needed. We are also providing phone or video nutritional consultations to help determine the right nutritional program for each individual person.
We’re Here for the Community
We’re here to treat you, advise you and do whatever we can to help you stay safe and well during this healthcare crisis. So, do your exercises, eat right, stay informed on government heath guidelines and focus on the positive things in life. If you have free time, work on a project you really love or other productive activities. And when you need us, just call for an appointment. But if you have a fever, cough or shortness of breath, wait until you are fully recovered.
Yours in health,
Dustan Mattingly, DC
