Spinal Care and COVID-19: What You Should Know

Amid stay-at-home orders and the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, you might be weighing your options when it comes to getting spinal care and other health care services.

Dr. Brian Subach and our team at Subach Spinal Solutions understand that health and safety are at the front of everyone’s minds right now. That’s why we’ve compiled this guide to spinal care and COVID-19, including self-care tips, immune-boosting options, and answers to your top questions about spinal treatment services.

Caring for your body during COVID-19

Caring for your body and overall health is more important now than ever. By doing what you can to boost your immune system, you’re giving your body the best fighting chance against COVID-19. Some ways you can maximize your health are:

If you have neck or back pain, try these methods to alleviate your symptoms:

IV nutrition therapy

To help our patients get a healthy boost of nutrients in the most effective way, we offer IV nutrition therapy. IV therapy delivers highly concentrated doses of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals directly into your bloodstream, skipping your digestive system altogether (which may filter out some of these important ingredients). 

Some IV treatments we recommend to help protect you from viral infections are:

The team at Subach Spinal Solutions evaluates your condition to determine the best IV nutrition therapy for your needs. We ask about your current health, any symptoms you’re experiencing, personal and family health history, and lifestyle. We then create an individualized IV therapy mixture, as well as a treatment plan, to help you get in the best health possible.

Should I move forward with my spine surgery?

The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) recommends that elective and nonessential surgeries be postponed at this time in order to reserve personal protective equipment for those on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis. If you need to postpone or reschedule your upcoming surgery, please contact us to discuss your options. 

If you have reservations about getting an essential surgery or feel like you may be developing COVID-19 symptoms, please reach out to us as well. Our caring and knowledgeable staff is happy to answer your questions and help you determine the next steps in getting the spinal care you need.

Note: If you’re experiencing severe COVID-19 symptoms, including difficulty breathing, persistent chest pain, inability to stay awake or conscious, or bluish face or lips, please call 911 or go to the nearest hospital right away.

What alternatives do I have for in-office visits?

For our returning patients, we’re offering virtual visits, including telephone and video conferencing. If you would like to set up a virtual visit with Dr. Subach, just give us a call at 571-732-0044 to schedule an appointment.
