COVID-19 Resources for Chiropractors in Colorado

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) IN THE CHIROPRACTIC OFFICE UPDATED

October 28, 2020

Editors Note: This article is being constantly updated as new information is made available. Please continue checking this article for updates.

In the last month, our nation and the entire world are coming to terms with the unprecedented health and business impact of Coronavirus. At the CCA, we have never been more acutely aware that many chiropractors operate as solo practitioners or small businesses who may feel more isolated than large group practitioners. 

In addition to providing information updates, the CCA believes it is just as important that we serve as a bridge to remind members that our chiropractic community is strong and that we are here to help in any way we can. The CCA continues to work to stay abreast of developments and to share them with our members.
