While we have always prided ourselves on keeping our office clean, we have recently stepped up our efforts amid concerns of the Novel Coronavirus Covid-19. We have been diligently disinfecting our office multiple times per day and have been following information and recommendations from the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as new information becomes available.
Obviously our primary concern is for the safety and wellbeing of both our patients and staff. Along with regular disinfecting and handwashing, we have decided to temporarily remove our toys from the children’s play area. We continue to welcome your children into the office and will be able to provide them coloring sheets for their entertainment while here.
Please keep this in mind – our bodies’ nervous system is like an air traffic controller that directs the immune system in detecting and eliminating invaders. The more powerful your immune system, the less likely you are to get any virus. Now, we’re not suggesting that structural correction is going to ward off Coronavirus. What we are saying is that it is completely reasonable to suggest that a perfectly tuned nervous system can increase 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’ve probably heard it a thousand times, but here are some tips to keep your immune system functioning at its best:
• Make sure you are getting adequate sleep • Stay away from processed sugars • Drink plenty of water • Wash your hands frequently • Cover your cough • Supplement your nutrition. There are many supplements out there that can boost immune function. If you would like more information on this, please send us an email at [email protected] or talk to us at your next appointment
Knowing how structural correction can boost your immune system, during this time we welcome you to come into the office to get adjusted. If you are experiencing any respiratory distress, or fever, please call the office ahead of time so that we can schedule you at a time when there are no other patients in the office and we can properly disinfect afterwards.

We welcome any questions or concerns. We want to continue to make every experience at Platinum Chiropractic a positive one.
Yours in Health,
