COVID 19 UPDATE

Patients of Pinehurst Chiropractic Center,

As many of you know the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has frequently changed the regulations and recommendations regarding COVID-19. We would like to assure you that we are abiding by the mandates of the Governor as well as the ever-changing recommendations of the CDC. It is imperative that we give our best efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, and as a public facility we simply cannot do that without the help of our staff but more importantly the help of our patients.

Please make sure you read this letter in its entirety before coming to your next appointment. Listed below are some questions that have been composed to help prevent potentially compromised patients from entering our facility as well as patients who are at a higher risk of infection. If you answer yes to ANY of the following questions, please call our office immediately and do not enter the building under any circumstances.

1) Have you or anyone in your household had a fever in the last two weeks?
2) Have you or anyone in your household had symptoms of a cold or the flu such as: a cough (even if it’s not productive), runny nose (unrelated to allergies), body aches, vomiting or diarrhea?
3) Have you or anyone in your household traveled outside of the state in the last two weeks?
4) Have you, anyone in your household or anyone that you have been in contact with been diagnosed with COVID-19 or could potentially have COVID-19? (Many people are contagious without symptoms. It is important to remember that just because someone does not appear to be sick; it doesn’t mean they were not in contact with someone who was/is infected with COVID-19.)   
5) Do you have any of the following conditions?

  • Undergoing chemotherapy
  • -Immunocompromised/ autoimmune disorder

***If you have any of the following conditions please use your discretion in deciding if you would like to keep your scheduled appointment but it is imperative that you understand you have an elevated risk factor for contracting COVID-19.

If none of the above pertain to you in any way and you wish to keep your appointment, please sit in your car until your scheduled appointment time. If anyone is with you and they are old enough to stay in the car, they need to do so.

The Doctors and staff at PCC are doing their best to keep the office extra clean and sanitized during this time. Please make sure that you use hand sanitizer or wash your hands immediately when you arrive for your appointment and again as you leave. We also have gloves and masks available. If you wish to wear them during your appointment, please inform one of our staff members.

Also, if you or anyone that you know needs any food or supplies during this time, please let us know. We will do as much as we can to help.

Pregnancy Aches and Pains: How Chiropractic Can Treat Them


Aches and pains during pregnancy are part of the experience. From the moment of conception, a woman’s body goes through a plethora of changes. During these discomforts of back pain, pelvic pain, and postural adjustments, chiropractic care is among the popular alternative medicine therapies for providing relaxation and relief.

Body aches are a common complaint throughout pregnancy. Whether the pain is affecting a specific area such as pelvic pressure, or the patient feels sciatic nerve pain in the lower back and legs, chiropractic care will help maintain spinal health and correct misaligned joints. Chiropractic is a non-invasive, safe, and beneficial way to support your body in the midst of this magical time.

Subluxations and Irritations during Pregnancy

Commonly known as joint dysfunctions, subluxations of the spine occur when two or more vertebrae become restricted and block the body’s ability to communicate with itself. Most pregnant women seek out chiropractic treatment for localized back pain, sciatica (radiating leg pain), as well as headaches, neck pain, or posture imbalances. When the body begins to gain weight in the abdomen, the muscles will work harder and a rotation of the pelvis will force the body to unnaturally adapt to additional stress that has been placed on the spine – resulting in negative joint function and poor nerve communication.

How Can Chiropractic Help?

Chiropractors are trained to locate and treat joint dysfunctions with spinal adjustments and hand manipulation. By applying a gentle, targeted movement to the body’s spinal column and extremities, the chiropractor will restore proper joint function and improve nerve communication throughout the body. Chiropractors who are trained to work with pregnant women may use adjustment tables and use techniques that avoid undesirable pressure on the abdomen. These adjustments are designed to re-establish balance and alignment to the pelvis and spine, leaving the patient pain-free and able to enjoy the remaining weeks of pregnancy.

Additional benefits of chiropractic care include:

  • Controlling symptoms of nausea
  • Reduction in time of labor and delivery
  • Potential prevention of cesarean delivery

Before seeing a chiropractor during pregnancy, it’s best to obtain your doctor’s approval first. Chiropractic care is not recommended if you’re experiencing vaginal bleeding, placenta abruption, ectopic pregnancy and/or moderate to severe toxemia.
