Chiropractors and other medical services were specifically exempt from The Health Protections Regulations (Coronavirus Restrictions) that came into effect on 26th March 2020.
Before you visit please complete this form. Your chiropractor will prioritise your health and have the final say as to whether they accept you for treatment.
The main symptoms of coronavirus are:
- high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
Most people with coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms.

Government guidance on social distancing for everyone
Consider the risk to you and others:
In some cases of Coronavirus (Covid-19) the symptoms and complications are severe or even fatal. The safest place during this pandemic is at home. Every time you leave your home you increase the risk of catching or transmitting Covid-19. Please reflect on this before coming.
People at higher risk should have had a letter from the NHS asking them to “shield” for 12 weeks, for example you’ve had an organ transplant or are on chemotherapy. If this is you then you must speak to your chiropractor before coming in.
There’s also a larger group of people who are at moderate risk from coronavirus. These are people who:
- Aged over 70
- Are seriously overweight with a BMI of 40 or above (check at home if unsure)
- Have a long-term lung condition (such as COPD, bronchitis or emphysema)
- Have chronic heart, kidney or liver disease
- Have diabetes
- Have chronic neurological conditions (e.g. Parkinson’s disease, motor neurone disease or MS)
- Have problems with your spleen (e.g. sickle cell)
- Have a weak immune system (e.g. HIV, AIDS, steroids, immunosuppressants or chemotherapy)
- Are pregnant
NHS advice for people at high-risk
- DO NOT COME IF YOU SHOULD BE SELF ISOLATING DUE TO CORONAVIRUS SYMPTOMS
- Speak to your chiropractor before coming if you should be “shielding” for 12 weeks as per Government guidance
- Consider your personal risk factors before coming (e.g. aged 70 plus)
