The Clinical Compass has released a paper, “COVID-19 Prevention and Treatment,” prepared by chiropractors Tom Augat, DC, MS, CCSP, FASA; Ronald Farabaugh, DC, CCSP; Wayne Whalen, DC, FIACN, FICC; Alec Schielke, DC; Jay Greenstein, DC, CCSP, CCFI-L1, CKTP, FMS; and Cheryl Hawk, DC, PhD, CHES, LMT; with an intent to “provide relevant, timely and accurate information regarding conventional medical and non-pharmacologic treatment and prevention options regarding COVID-19.”
The Clinical Compass (Council on Chiropractic Guidelines and Practice Parameters, CCGPP) “recognizes the worldwide impact of COVID-19 and is concerned over the distribution of inadequate, misleading and often inaccurate information spread primarily over social media.”
In choosing what behaviors and precautions should be embraced to help decrease one’s chance of contracting COVID-19, health care providers and the general public should evaluate the most current research and recommendations, the paper states.
“Additionally, the CDC, FDA, NIH, and WHO have many resources available for the health care community and public. Their websites provide up-to-date public health recommendations and information. Understanding and leveraging all available resources helps providers and patients alike make the best possible educated decisions.”
