COVID-19 Information

UWS, as a primary health care provider, is working to protect our patients, students, and our staff. UWS continues to monitor the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. All patients must call 503-255-6771 in advance to help determine how to best treat you and directing you to the most appropriate care. We are currently not accepting walk-in or maintenance care patients.

We currently aren’t scheduling patients who are experiencing any symptoms of:

  • Fever of more than 100 degrees Fahrenheit
    • If no thermometer available, symptoms may include:
    • Headache, chills, shivering, sweating, soreness and aching, weak muscles, sore eyes & general fatigue
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • International travel
  • Close contact with others with similar symptoms

There is no specific treatment for COVID-19. There is no credible scientific evidence that chiropractic spinal adjustment/manipulation confers or boosts immunity to fight or prevent COVID-19. Most infected healthy people will recover on their own. Others will require expert guidance.

UWS and your community all need to work together in avoiding unnecessary travel and contact with one another. Whenever possible, please stay home. UWS does not have the materials for COVID-19 testing. We will continue to monitor and update our clinical protocols per Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and Oregon Health Authority (OHA) directives.

Our approach to health care is to consider the patient as a whole person, instead of simply addressing symptoms. We take the time to learn about each patient through an assessment of health status, history, personal priorities and preferences. This allows our providers to offer personalized recommendations to enhance overall health and wellness, as well as target specific concerns and conditions.

The Health Centers of UWS promotes healing through conservative methods rather than aggressive or invasive treatments. We instruct and support our patients in a variety of wellness strategies to actively optimize treatment and help them become empowered advocates for their personal health.
