Open Brighton Chiropractors

Brighton Chiropractic Clinic Open

Brighton Chiropractic Clinic Open for Appointments

We are happy to announce that Core Chiropractic Clinic in Brighton is Open for Appointments as of the 1st of June
Since the 23rd March Core Chiropractic has been closed to prevent the spread of Covid-19 throughout the community. However in the previous few weeks advice from the Government, Public Health England and the British Chiropractic Association have changed and approved the reopening for clinics

After a thorough risk assessment and procurement of relevant equipment needed we have made the following measures for opening of the clinic to protect its patients and practitioners

What we ask of you!

1. Please do not attend any appointments if you suffer with any symptoms of Covid-19 including the following
• A positive Covid-19 diagnostic test
• A high temperature
• A persistent cough
• Shortness of Breath
• Change in sense of taste or smell
• If a member of your household is self isolating
• If you are classed as or live with anybody who is considered venerable or high risk. If you are in these groups then please email m.bateman@ccsussex..co.uk and we can try to either book a video appointment or mitigate risks even further. For further information on Vulnerable/High Risk Patient groups please see https://ccsussex.co.uk/vunerable-patient-groups-and-high-risk-patient-groups/

Clinic Premises

1. Doors will be kept open to minimize need for touching surfaces on entrance and exit
2. Seating and clutter has been removed in the clinic reception to prevent patients sitting and loitering
3. Bench fabric has been removed and no towels will be used during treatments to ease clinic cleaning

What you need to do during Appointments

1. Please do not arrive early- please arrive exactly on time for your appointment to avoid meeting people during cross over times between appointments
2. Your temperature will be taken at the start of the appointment via a non-touch visual forehead infrared thermometer (please do not be offended)
3. I have extended appointments to enable thorough cleaning in between appointments and so there is no patient cross over in the clinic
4. We ask you wait outside the clinic until being invited in. If the weather doesn’t allow this then please wait in your vehicle to be called in
5. Please come in and wash your hands before the session, then wash your hands again before leaving
6. Please do not bring anybody else with you too appointments unless needed to chaperone
7. We ask please provide card payments. Cash will not be accepted on site
8. There will be a copy of our Risk Assessment which w will ask you to sign consent to being aware of

Clinic Cleaning

1. In between patients the clinic surfaces will be cleaned with 70% + alcohol cleaning products and/or antibac antiviral cleaning sprays including the bench, doors, chairs and tables
2. Toilets and reception areas will be cleaned in between morning and afternoon sessions
3. Professional cleaning will occur 2 x weekly

Personal Protective Equipment

1. Practitioners will be wearing PPE during appointments including disposable surgical masks, gloves, aprons and shoe covers. Cleanable full face visors will be worn and practitioners will change clothes in each session
2. Patients will be required to have facial coverings. If you do not have anything then you will be offered a disposable surgical mask. Please do not be offended when offered

Please be aware that these measures are taken for your safety, the safety of your families and the community. We will ask these things of our patients as a whole and not on an individual basis so to help mitigate the risks in such an environment and help keep clinic open

We look forward to seeing you soon however in the mean time please stay safe

The Core Health Essentials to Health

With Dr Matthew Bateman (Doctor of Chiropractic)

Welcome to the Core Essentials to Health column. Last month’s column covered psychological stress and this month’s column focuses on my favourite, physical wellbeing.

Very simple levels such as 20 minutes of active exercise daily can make you 50% less likely to have diabetes, 30% less chance of heart disease and 30% less likely to suffer from depression or dementia. So obviously even low levels of exercise not only helps us physically but also mentally. Sticking to long term exercise is a problem that I see in my patients regularly. You need goals that are achievable for you and then enjoy fulfilling them. Goals can be as simple as walking the dog daily or tough as running a marathon, it must fit around your current lifestyle so you can plan it at the beginning of the week and execute it by the end. You goal can be integrated into your current schedule like walking your children to school or even going to the gym in your lunch hour. The key aspect is to then celebrate your goal! Tell people about your achievement and then set a new goal. My wife ran the Brighton Marathon but after race day, her running stopped. So now she has set another goal of a 12 week fitness plan and is enjoying executing her new goals. Don’t make excuses, remember the satisfaction after going to the gym, walking to dog or swimming and make that feeling a priority in your life.

Combined exercise, psychological happiness and nutrition can help you to be healthier and happier. Next month you can learn simple easy methods to introduce new and fun healthy eating to your lifestyle.

Is lemon water good for you?

When life gives you  lemons……make lemon water in the morning

From a personal standpoint I find it is a fantastic way to re-hydrate first thing in the morning, it eases muscular aches post work out and also improves my cognitive function during the day.

It  and has far more health benefits beyond that as well.. take a look
