HPC Checkup Show – Episode 7

Hey Patient Family,

We hope you are healthy to start 2021 or beginning to rebuild from a tough or even tragic year.  We all know what 2020 was so we don’t have to go there.  This year will hopefully restore some normalcy and allow opportunities to flourish once again.

COVID Vaccination & HPC Safety Measures

We have been open and operating throughout the entire pandemic.  It was initially the wild west of not knowing what was coming next, but we have definitely settled into a solid routine.  Thankfully we have had no known infections occurring within the office or within the gym (CrossFit Levo).  Some of this has come from a common-sense approach to enhancing our standard operating procedures.  But most of this success has come from patient’s self-screening and asking the right questions at the right times.

Dr. Jared has now received both Pfizer vaccinations with only mild side-effects, if any at all.  While it may seem strange for a chiropractor to rush out to get a vaccine, he viewed this as a duty to the community and the patient family.  Honestly, we wanted to add another layer of protection so that everyone could feel safe and comfortable coming to HPC.

We always say that we are blessed with the best patients (kind of like Cardinals and Blues fans).  There have been many occurrences where patients have called the office for clarification due to a close contact or simply self isolating.  Many of these occurrences resulted in the person becoming COVID-19 positive.  Had they neglected their situation or symptoms, no prevention measures on our part would have prevented something bad from happening.  Thankfully we are still batting 1.000 with our patient family being smart, courteous, and kind.

Thank you for being honest and awesome people.

Congrats to Mr. Ted

We want to give Ted Smith a shout-out for all the work he has been doing to reduce his pain and live a fully capable life.

Ted started his journey with us because of foot pain that was preventing him from running. We identified “a few” things that needed some tweaking with his alignment, muscle tension, posture, and movement patterning. With focused attention and a commitment to redefine his movement awareness, Ted overcame his running issues and will be ready for more come spring.

But Ted didn’t stop there. A recent bout with neck pain found him in a similar situation with the upper half of his body. With the same focus and commitment, Ted has not only improved his entire lower half, but also his upper half and spinal mid-line.

He truly is one of the most complete and impressive patients we have. So, CONGRATS TED!!!
