I had hoped that I could open the clinic again on April 6, but it is in everyones best interest to delay reopening the clinic. I have not set a re-open date.
Chiropractic IS listed on the Ontario essential services list. However, this is only for URGENT CARE. My regulatory college has defined urgent care as:
1) Care for patients experiencing a sudden and debilitating change in functional abilities (understood as walking, standing, sitting, lifting floor-to-waist or waist-to-shoulder, stair climbing, ladder climbing) or significant restrictions (experienced during bending/twisting, repetitive movement, pushing/pulling with right/left arm) as well as injury to head/neck/back and extremities.
2) Treatment aimed at alleviating significant pain, understood as pain that is incapacitating for the patient and interferes with their ability to carry out normal functioning.
If you have an urgent issue, please call my office and we will figure out what needs to be done.
Otherwise, I will hopefully see you in a few weeks!
