Dear Patients and Friends,
As you are all aware the COVID-19 pandemic has got us all in a whirlwind of uncertainty and stress. We wanted to reach out to you and let you know that we are here to support you and yours.
3Ways Chiropractic Marrickville and MVMT Chiropractic & Sports Medicine Belmore will be continuing treatment as per usual, and our practitioners and staff have undertaken and passed the government COVID-19 Infection Control Training module. We will be implementing:
- more spaced appointments between patients as to allow for better social distancing between patients
- practitioners and staff will be using face masks
- wipe down tables and equipment between patients (a practice we employed prior to COVID-19)
- Full stock of immune boosting supplements to aid with both immune support for COVID-19 and the upcoming autumn and winter flus and colds.
Whilst the government and world health organisation believe there is no evidence in supplements combating COVID-19, the fear and anxiety the media have propagated, as well as the general uncertainty around the virus is causing more STRESS (the fuel for depressing the nervous system and immune system).
Things shown to combat both stress and boost the immune system:
- Mushroom extract
- Zinc + Vitamin C
- Vitamin D + K
- Magenesium (Meta-Mag)
Up to 5% all cases of COVID-19 are contributing to severe reactions to the virus. Contrary to the fear-induced news the media is putting out, you will be okay if you take the correct hygiene and self-distancing measures in a public setting.
Please note, for your own care and for the care of others around you, if you are experiencing fever, dry cough, and sore throat, as well as fatigue, you should get checked for COVID-19. As a professional courtesy to our patients that are still coming in for treatment, anyone suspected of having any of these symptoms will be refused treatment and referred off for testing.
We hope to keep you all fighting fit for the current and upcoming times surrounding COVID-19, and again want to reiterate we are here to support you during this time. We will continue to keep you updated with any changes to the clinic schedule.
In good health,
Dr. Aaron Obeid & Dr. David Pham
