Corona Virus Resource page

We understand your concern about the Corona Virus. We are only seeing patients in acute pain or has a condition that warrants a physical appointment who have not been out of state, have not been in contact with someone who has tested positive with COVID-19, have no fever, nor respiratory symptoms such as no difficulty breathing and no cough in the last 14 days.

COVID-19 Update: Governor Holcomb has issued a "Stay-at-home" order from March 25th - April 7th, but we can continue to see our acute pain patients that meet certain criteria.

We are offering "virtual appointments" to our patients during this pandemic. Good news, virtual appointments can be billed to your insurance.

If you can wait over two weeks for your next appointment, or are unsure if your condition warrants a physical appointment, feel free to email us at [email protected] and let us know you would like a "virtual appointment" with one of our chiropractors. We will listen to your concerns, give you advice on what you can do at home for your health concerns until this "stay-at-home" is lifted, or we can let you know if your condition warrants a physical appointment with us.

Here are some facts and resources we put together for you:

If you are healthy, your immune system is very likely to combat this virus, like it does other pathogens. We encourage you to eat well, sleep well, destress and move well. Remember, the Corona Virus is not the only pathogen out there.  Thousands of Americans die every year from the flu alone. So as always, it is best to follow guidelines from the CDC and Indiana State Department of Health. We have always and will continue to follow these guidelines at our clinic:

  • Wash hands with soap and water regularly for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue.
  • Disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Avoid close contact with others who are ill.


It is inevitable we are going to be exposed to the virus at some point. The government is attempting to slow down the spread so our hospitals can handle the number of cases of those who succumb to the virus. Without slowing down the spread, it will spread so fast that the hospitals will be overwhelmed and more high risk people will be at risk of dying. We are doing our part by

  • Scheduling so there are no more than 10 people in our clinic at one time, including our Drummond Team 
    • (tons of space between people in our spacious office)
  • Sanitize, sanitize and sanitize some more
  • Keep everyone at least 6 feet apart while in common areas
  • Since we are within 6 feet of our patients during the treatment, we are wearing masks during treatments
  • We are asking patients to wait in their car until their appointment time, so we can take them straight back to the treatment room (minimizing the number of people in our common area)
  • We are also scheduling patients their following appointment (if needed) while they are still in the treatment room with the doctor, so they can go straight out the door to their car right after treatment (again, to minimize the number of people in our clinic at all times)
  • We have the capability to accept online payments, which has been helpful during this time of need to minimize patients in our waiting room.
  • Did we mention sanitize, sanitize and sanitize some more :)

But if you are a healthy person, it is very likely you will recover! Just like with any flu, you may be a carrier and not even feel sick, and if you do get sick, you are likely to get better. Experts in infectious disease epidemiology are reporting that at least 97% recover. That is over 97% odds in your favor!!!  SO KEEP YOURSELF HEALTHY TO BETTER THESE ODDS!!!

If you have traveled out of state (even just to a neighboring state, not just out of the country), have been in contact with someone testing positive with COVID-19, have a fever over 100 degrees, difficulty breathing or a dry cough, contact your medical doctor immediately to schedule for a COVID-19 test. If you are sick, self quarantine for 14 days.

There is no stopping this virus. It would be like trying to stop the wind. So here is our top three ways to help you stay well: 

Eat Well, Think Well, Move Well

  • Eat well 
    • Eat real food
      • not "out of the box" food with suspicious ingredients
    • Avoid junk food, soda beverages and alcohol
    • Drink plenty of water
      • Half your weight in ounces of water
    • Take your Vitamin C 
      • 1000 mg per day
      • Ester-C is best (available at our office)
    • Elderberry syrup is great for boosting the immune system
  • Think well
    • Sleep well
    • Practice de-stressing
      • avoid "sensationalized news" 2 hours before going to bed
      • meditate
      • breathe out twice as long as you breath in when feeling tense
      • work on relaxing your muscles from your toes to the top of your head
  • Move well
    • Stretch often
      • even if it is just rolling your shoulders back and down
      • it does not have to be a fancy, but it is best to be done frequently
    • Exercise
      • go for a walk
      • find a physical activity you enjoy doing
      • laugh and find joy in life
    • Get a chiropractic adjustment
      • There is scientific evidence that getting an adjustment, especially if it results in a cavitation in the spine (a popping sound), that it increases the level of immune-globulins in the blood (boosts your immune system)
        • To be clear, we are not claiming that getting an adjustment will make you immune to the virus
        • An adjustment is another tool you can use to boost your immunity, just like taking a supplement, or washing your hands
        • We just know that getting regular chiropractic adjustments helps boost your immune system and helps keep your body well
