At ChiroCure Clinic we are taking every precaution; all currently working staff are being screened and tested weekly, we are screening patients before appointments, limiting the number of clinic appointments, staff are self isolating except for going to work and upholding excellent hygiene.
On top of this we will also be extending our care to include Skype and Telehealth online consultations for chiropractic home care and advice.
Consultations assist with continuity of care and include home care education and personalised rehab programs with prescribed and demonstrated exercises and stretches, monitoring, supplement and sleep advice, ergonomic support and more.
