We ask you to please call the office and reschedule your massage appointment if you have any of the following: COVID-19, Colds/flu, drug or alcohol intoxication, any contagious disease (especially of the skin), recent operations or acute injuries that prevent you from having a massage, neuritis (unless indicated by a doctor that massage is recommended).
You must reschedule any appointments you have at Health Link if:
You have had a fever of 100.4 or higher in the past 14 days
You have had any symptoms of COVID-19 (shortness of breath, cough, fever, chills, sore throat) that you cannot relate to any other health condition in the past 5 days.
You have been in contact with anyone testing positive in the past 3-5 days and you are not a healthcare worker, first responder or someone using PPE (personal protective equipment)
Face coverings are optional for all patients and team members at Health Link. All team members and providers will place one on at any time by request.
Massage and Acupuncture clients MUST wear face masks covering their nose and mouth throughout the entire session. (Governor’s orders- no exceptions as this supersedes his other executive order.)
*If you have a new injury/condition that requires extra time you MUST alert us before your appointment. Our adjustment appointments times do not allow for additional time for re-evaluation or additional history, and in our efforts to keep people moving in and out of the office, we must know in advance to allow us to stay on time for other patients who are scheduled. If you require extra time without advance notice, we may have to reschedule you for another time.
You are able to wait in your car. Simply call the office and let us know you have arrived and someone will call you when it is time for your appointment.
We are offering appointments outside of our normal office hours for those in the highest risk group. Simply call the office and make the request and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Precautions Heath Link is taking for your health and safety:
Tables are cleaned multiple times daily and by patient request.
High contact surfaces are being cleaned daily.
We have acrylic shields at the front desk.
Massage schedule has been altered to accommodate additional cleaning procedures.
Absolutely. Chiropractors are trained to care for pregnant women, and many women report significant pain relief as a result of chiropractic care. Health Link has special tables and pillows to accommodate a woman in all stages of pregnancy.
Studies report that woman who had regular prenatal chiropractic care experienced decreased labor times by 25-30% and 50% less drugs used during pregnancy. Other positive reports included fewer delivery complications, less back labor pain, improved milk production and reduced likelihood for postpartum depression.
Chiropractors do not treat diseases, they help to correct spinal subluxations that can cause health problems. Through regular adjustments, advising on proper nutrition, exercise, and posture, your chiropractor can help you raise a child who is structurally and functionally healthy.
The number one “illness” in children is everyday falls and accidents. Doctors of chiropractic can correct issues stemming from these accidents, while helping the body to naturally function at its optimum level.
Birth or as soon as you can get their first spinal check up! An infant can have their first subluxation in the womb. After birth, a child’s spine grows almost 50% in length during the first year of life. These developmental changes make it important for every child to get a spinal check-up.
We want our children to have the best start in life. That includes healthy prenatal care, proper nutrition, and taking the child to a chiropractor to ensure there are no nervous system interferences.
Chiropractic is one of the safest forms of children’s health care. The benefits for children are far ranging, including improving nervous system function in children dealing with ear infections, colic, bed wetting, asthma, allergies, frequent colds, injuries, postural challenges, scoliosis, ADD/ADHD and so much more.
We use very gentle techniques to care for children. A chiropractor does not adjust a baby or a child the same way as an adult. The pressure you would use to test a tomato for ripeness is the pressure we use on infants.
Children respond so well to chiropractic adjustments that we often say they are like sponges! Their bodies haven’t had the stresses an adult has had. Some of the happiest practice members in our office are the children.
