At Schulze Family Chiropractic, Inc., it is always our top priority to provide all of our patients with the best experience in our office while protecting the health and safety of our patients and employees.  Like each of you, we understand that we share a responsibility to protect our families and community, which has caused us to take a number of actions in response to the novel Corona virus (COVID-19) threat.  To start, we have already increased our robust quality assurance and safety standards.  Because of this, you may find that there is a slight increase in wait times during peak hours as we adjust to this increased vigilance.  We are also closely monitoring and following guidance and advice from the Kern County Public Health Department regarding this illness.  There are additional personal guidelines that you may review on the Center for Disease Control (CDC) website found here:  www.cdc.gov

In addition to the CDC recommendations, staying current on your chiropractic treatment will support a healthy immune system.  Fight back against the COVID-19 virus with a strong immune system response from chiropractic adjustments, in addition to the recommendations by the medical community.  Historically, chiropractic patients have demonstrated a strong immune response with continued chiropractic adjustments.  As a reminder, adjustments optimize the body’s nervous system which regulates and controls all body systems including the immune system.  Nutritional supplements are also a key component in fighting against our current challenge.  You may find advice and supplementation at your local health food stores.

We ask that anyone that is experiencing any cold or flu symptoms, i.e. fever, dry cough, shortness of breath, please CALL to reschedule your appointments.  Please avoid coming into the office, and call your medical provider for further instructions and/or evaluation.  Testing for this virus is becoming more and more available through your primary medical physician.

We will get through this as long as we follow the recommendations and help one another out.  To our younger patients (who are not showing any symptoms, of course), look for ways to help our valued senior citizens during this time.  They are the most vulnerable right now and may be afraid to leave their houses.  Ask if you can go to the grocery store for them, and then leave the items on their porch so they can maintain their distance from you.  Ask them what else they may need that you can assist with.  Help your family, friends and neighbors whenever and wherever safe to do so.  

Finally, my personal advice to you is to pray.  Pray for protection, comfort, peace and healing while the dangers from this virus, and the panic that is going along with it, slowly decreases over time.  Pray for our leadership in our state and federal government as they continue to look for answers to the many challenges they are facing currently, helping to keep us safe.  As it says in Matthew 6:26, “Look at the birds.  They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for you heavenly Father feeds them.  And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?”  Also, Isaiah 41:10, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”  We are His children.  Difficult times are inevitable in this world.  Trust in our Heavenly Father to provide for our needs.  Stay safe.  Stay well.  May God bless you and your family and keep you safe.

Thank you for your continued trust and confidence,

Randall Schulze, D.C.
