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 best exercises for low back and core stability – Both Sided Dead Bug

Here is the both sided or “Bilateral Dead Bug” which is one of our exercises for low back pain. The development of both sides at the same time is harder along the progression from the normal Dead Bug. It should only be attempted when the Dead Bug is pain free and easy….or becoming no challenge any more. By improving CORE strength you can prevent further low back pain and improve your performance in every day activities.

The Bilateral Dead Bug again should be done in 3 x 8-10 reps and can have dumbbells added if needed.

Oh and wait there is still a further progress to come

Enjoy…….

The best exercises for low back and core stability – Dead Bug

The Dead Bug is one of my favourite exercises and is done to stabilise the low back and core when your arms / legs are moving. It will help you stay strong when you are doing regular activities like lifting children, playing contact sports or performing overhead activates.

Pick the level which is appropiate for you and complete 3 x 8-10 reps within your core workout

Enjoy….and wait for the harder progression
