As more individuals go back to work, some are also catching up on missed out on medical professionals consultations.
During the health orders, healthcare facility leaders at both Crestwood and Huntsville Hospital worried how crucial it is for people to continue preventative care.
Dr. Jessica Koelker-Davis, the owner of Cove Chiropractic in South Huntsville, said a lot of her patients are still getting care. However, she stated back in March her office saw the effect of coronavirus because numerous clients were too anxious to come for their visit.
“We truly saw a reduction in patients since individuals didn't know if they ought to go outside let alone leave their house,” she explained.
Koelker-Davis treats a range of clients of all ages doing preventative care and helping those who battle with neck and back pain, neck discomfort, headaches and a range of other problems.
She stated patients who are now working at home said it's taking a toll.
“In the last couple of weeks [I have heard], ‘Oh my gosh I have been working from the sofa with a 2-year-old hanging off of my shoulders, and I had this terrific set up at work and now I'm working from the cooking area table. I'm working from the couch and I am miserable. Can you please assist me?'” Koelker-Davis stated.
She said once chiropractic care was deemed essential by the Alabama State Board of Chiropractic Examiners. A lot of her patients were experiencing concerns with their home/work set-up.
“We lovingly describe it as ‘tech neck' or ‘Netflix back.' We live our entire lives here. They're miserable, and they do not have their terrific ergonomic set up like we made certain they had at work,” she said.
In order to keep patients safe, she informed me they removed group treatment and are not having people in the waiting space.
Koelker-Davis and her personnel are likewise all using masks and inviting clients to do so also.
“Every client has their own room, so they're personal and safe and secluded. We have scaled back hours a little bit to make certain we have enough time to sterilize and thoroughly scrub this put so everybody is safe as they can be,” she said.
Koelker-Davis stated she's also changed hours here at Cove Chiropractic to offer her staff and her lots of time to tidy flooring to ceiling.
They are asking anybody who has coronavirus signs to stay at home until they are well.Source: waaytv.com
