Crewkerne Chiropractic Clinic

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Last reviewed: 18 July 2020

We are currently able to offer 'hands on' face to face appointments for all our patients unless they have been told to self-isolate. This follows advice from our professional association, the British Chiropractic Association, and an updated position from the statutory regulator, the General Chiropractic Council.

We are still in the process of contacting the many patients whose appointments were postponed during lockdown; however, if you have not yet heard from us and need an appointment urgently, please contact the clinic and our reception team will help you reschedule your interrupted care.

Please be aware that, in order to be fully compliant with the Government's COVID-19 secure status, we have had to extend and stagger appointment times. This means less availability and possibly a longer wait to be seen; appointments are offered on a 'first come, first served' basis but we will always try to prioritise urgent cases wherever possible.

We would ask all patients to co-operate with our extensive social distancing and PPE measures, which are there to make sure treatment can be given in a safe environment. This now includeds the requirement to wear a mask when visiting the clinic; if you are unable to bring one with you, we do have a limited supply of disposable masks for you to wear. You may be asked to remove the mask by your chiropractor in certain circumstances.

For people needing to self-isolate at this time, we will be continuing our 'remote' appointments, which allow us to take a clinical history; perform orthopaedic testing to reach a diagnosis, and treat using video exercises, modalities, posture, ergonomics and directed self-treatment.

Our reception is, as ever, open 9-7 on weekdays and 9-1 on Saturdays.
