Valued patients,

Due to  the COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking extra safety precautions to keep everyone safe. Safety measures taken include limiting the number of people in the building, patients and providers wearing masks per state guidelines, and allowing for extra time in between patients to thoroughly sanitize the room. All who enter the building must wash their hands or use sanitizer immediately. There is hand sanitizer throughout the building. Patients are asked to call or text us upon their arrival and wait in their cars or in the parking lot until notified for their appointment. We are currently open for all patient visits and are accepting new patients.

We follow the Minnesota Chiropractic Association Guidelines:
No one (staff member or patient) should come into the office and enter a 2-week self-quarantine if they or anyone they have been in contact with exhibits any of the following symptoms:

  • Bronchitis or Respiratory Infection
  • Sore Throat
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Digestive Complaints, including Vomiting or Diarrhea
  • Severe fatigue not associated with travel, myalgia and/or arthralgia
  • Anyone exhibiting these symptoms should enter a 2-week self-quarantine.
