Vaccinations & Immunization

January 1, 2021

The prevention and treatment of infectious disease is not within the scope of chiropractic practice. Accordingly, British Columbia chiropractors cannot provide any professional advice or counseling to patients in relation to vaccination issues.

 

Patients with vaccination questions should contact their Medical Doctor.

Face Masks are Mandatory inside the Office

November 25, 2020

   On November 24, the Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General issued an order requiring everyone to wear masks in         many indoor settings, including chiropractic clinics. There are exemptions for:

  • People with health conditions or with physical, cognitive or mental impairments who cannot wear one

  • People who cannot remove a mask on their own due to a medical condition.

  • Not wanting to wear a mask is not an exemption. 

We are OPEN Monday to Thursday by Appointment Only

June 1, 2020

 Under the new health regulations, at this time we CANNOT accept unscheduled appointments. Please call the office or use or contact form to request an appointment. Please note that every appointment request will need to be pre-screened for covid-19 infection. 

Please arrive at your designated appointment time. Late appointments cannot be accommodated at this time. All appointment times have been specifically staggered to allow for proper physical distancing and enhanced cleaning and hygiene protocols between patients. 

If you are suffering from seasonal allergies and are coughing or sneezing, you will be required to wear a face mask while in the office. 

We are NOW open for full patient care !

May 21, 2020

Under the new mandatory provincial health regulations, you will be required to complete a covid-19 self-assessment every time you request an appointment time. Once you submit an appointment request, a self-assessment link will be emailed to you. * PLEASE NOTE: We can only book an appointment once we have received your self assessment form. 

We are Re-opening on Thurs. May 21, 2020

May 15, 2020

We are excited to announce that Armstrong Chiropractic is NOW booking appointments 

for full patient care starting on Thursday May 21, 2020.

 

To meet our commitment to patient’s safety, we have taken new measures to ensure our office remains safe by modifying our booking procedures to include pre-screening questions and staggered appointments to help ensure physical distancing is always maintained. We understand that these “new” safety protocols may feel unnecessary to some, but under the circumstances, we are asking our patients to help us with this new transition by following the new protocols in the clinic.

 

What to expect at your next chiropractic visit?

 

  • The same friendly smiles and welcoming office environment!

  • All appointments will be screened for COVID-19 infection prior to receiving an appointment time. Please note, that we are unable to provide “in-person” care, if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms in the last 14 days:

  1. Cold or flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, runny nose, chills, sore throat, sneezing)

  2. Shortness of breath

  3. Have traveled internationally or have been in contact with someone who has traveled internationally in the last 14 days.

  • Please arrive at your appointment alone unless you require a caregiver to be present or are being treated with a family member.
