Dear Houston Community,
We are taking steps to ensure the welfare of our office and staff at Alexander Chiropractic. The reason we have not closed, and have no plans to at this time, is that chiropractic is considered an essential health care service. The #1 thing we all must work towards is keeping the ER, Urgent Care, and medical care as clear and open as possible.
Chiropractic plays a huge role in doing that. It’s been proven that chiropractic care reduces the need for medical care of all kinds; so that is crucial right now since the #1 reason for adults to visit the ER is severe musculoskeletal pain and issues, we remain here to limit that.
Many of you, your friends, your co-workers need help with any number of health care challenges from the lower back pain, the neck pain, the headaches and all the new pains developing from working from home all of a sudden. Some of you cannot get into your usual doctors’ offices as THEY are caring for the Corona virus patients, Or YOU have been told what you have IS NOT AN EMERGENCY.
I understand that this is a tense time. We are here to help you. I have been a part of this community for many years, and I have never felt a stronger time to do what I can. No, we are not taking anyone even suspecting themselves of having the virus. But we are gladly opening our doors to all the rest of you have literally nowhere to go and feel like you have been put aside.
We have put in play every procedure possible from the CDC, the state, and our own to ensure our staff stays healthy and so do our patients and community. During this time, let’s all do our part to combat what we can control and keep using chiropractic to keep your body functioning and feeling as best it can.
Feed your body the good stuff! More greens, less processed + sugary foods, cut way back on dairy.
Get plenty of exercise and outdoors. Even if your workouts go from the gym to home, or happen in the home itself, movement is so calming to your brain + great to boost your immune system! Make sure to break a sweat, because that’s how our body gets things moving on out!
Manage your stress levels. In times like this, our stress levels skyrocket. Stress is known to cause many illnesses and will only dramatically decrease our body’s ability to FIGHT. Amidst all the unknown and chaos right now, try and find peace. Meditate, stay away from social media, show love, and stay calm.
Get plenty of restful sleep. Your body requires large amounts of energy, so it depends on adequate sleep to function at full capacity.
And of course, wash your hands!
If we can decrease the burden on the health care system to allow them to do what they do best, then we have done our job.
I look forward to serving you, helping you, and getting our community back.
