Covid 19 Crisis – Updates from Basics First:
Kelly Broadman, PA and Dr. Misty Paul Discuss Covid-19
This is a podcast where we discuss Corona Virus symptoms, how patient care has changed for us, and prevention/tips.
Dear Basics First Chiropractic Family,
Undoubtedly, you’re receiving emails daily, as concerns grow about the spread of Coroavirus (COVID-19) in our area and beyond. Rest assured that Basics First Chiropractic continues to care deeply about your health and wellness. We are writing to let you know the steps we have implemented in our office at the beginning of March. We have been and will continue to closely monitor this situation, being responsive to any guidance provided by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), VCA (Virginia Chiropractic Association) and other prominent state and local public health agencies.
Basics First Chiropractic has developed an integrated plan to safeguard your health while you visit our office.
· In addition to our regular nightly office cleaning, every hour we are cleaning all points of contact and surfaces, including doorknobs, chair arm rests, light switches, computers, faucets, etc.
· Each night our entire office is being disinfected using ozone treatment protocols, particularly on hard surfaces. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3312702/
· Soft surfaces are being cleaned daily with high temperature steam treatments.
· Multiple numbers of CDC-approved hand sanitizers have been placed through out the office for all to use.
· Dr. Paul will begin offering 15 to 30-minute Video Calls from Thursday, March 19, 2020. These calls are a great way to go over exercises and discuss at home solutions for decreasing neck, back and joint pain while staying in the comfort of your own home. You can also use this to do a Wellness Consult to review nutritional needs and best immune boosting practices. You’ll simply go to: https://zoom.us/j/8100316762 and follow the steps. Please call our office for more information and to schedule a complimentary 10 min intro with Dr. Paul to try it out!
Our massage therapists always use sterilized sheets and towels for each patient. All staff members continue to wash our hands before and after contact with each patient.
Everyone should cover mouths with the crook of their arm when coughing and sneezing. Additionally, keeping yourself healthy includes some commonsense practices of getting plenty of rest, eating a well-balanced diet, taking nutritional supplements, staying hydrated, regular daily exercise, and lowering stress.

If you have traveled to a high risk area as determined by the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/after-travel-precautions.html) or are experiencing symptoms related to the Coronavirus, please call our office prior to your visit. A doctor will call you back to discuss whether you should be treated. We feel hopeful in our team effort to get our community back to health! As always, it is our honor to treat you and your family.
We are now operating on reduced hours:
Mon & Wed: 10-12 and 2-5 pm
Fri & Sat: 8am – 12:30pm
Appointments may be available outside of these hours but must be requested via phone call. We are strictly adhering to principles of social distancing as we schedule patients during this crisis.
