APRIL 16, 2021 – COVID-19 UPDATE

April 16, 2021 by spencerjean_do

To all current, future and past Osteopathy patients,

It breaks my heart to inform you that the Windsor Essex County Health Unit has informed me that under the current provincial covid-19 restrictions (Schedule 2) Manual Osteopath’s are not permitted to see patients for in person treatments until further notice. This is extremely disheartening.  The reasoning for this is that in Canada Osteopathy is self-regulated instead of provincially regulated.  This means that there are several governing associations and societies which manual osteopaths can choose to join based on those associations requirements as well as the individual practitioner’s needs. Due to this, Osteopathy has been an oversight and has not been included in the “Schedule 2” of our current covid-19 regulations.

I am actively working on solutions with our local health unit as well as The Ontario Minister of Health and the provincial MP. I assure you that I am fighting for my patients as I know how detrimental this will be for those who are on current treatment plans.

If you have a scheduled appointment with myself, I will be in contact with you to discuss treatment options while I am restricted from seeing you in person. For example, home exercise programs, referral to our chiropractors for those who are receiving radial shockwave therapy, low level laser therapy and iontophoresis treatments.

If you would like to voice your opinion to our health unit and government officials, you may do so by emailing the following officials: phatfield-co@ndp.on.ca; mfines@wechu.org; premier@ontario.ca; enadalin@wechu.org; christine.elliott@pc.ola.org; irek.kusmierczyk@parl.gc.ca.

Again, I am extremely disheartened to inform you of this news and will continue to do my best to help you in any way I can through email, referrals, and Telehealth. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please email me at spencerjean_do@outlook.com and I will respond as soon as I am able to. I will continue to fight for my patients and hopefully will be able to see you in person soon. I will update you all as soon as I am updated.

Thank you for your understanding.

Yours in health,

Spencer Jean, DO, DO(MP), MBA

The guy is a wizard. I’ve been looking for a long time for someone that knows what they’re doing when it comes to backs. I will only see Spencer now going forward. If you decide to see someone else for back pain I’m not sure if you really want to get better. Whole clinic is great.

After many years of cervical spine discomfort and osteoarthritis most likely as a result of sitting at a desk for a good number of years, I found myself wanting to find an alternative means towards improving my spine health!My Naturopath Doctor recommended I see an Oesteopath namely Spencer Jean who came highly recommended.Spencer welcomed me into his office and the conversation began as to how to go about the process of correcting my posture! A plan of attack was formulated as to how to begin the process which was amazingly positive based on his confidence in doing so along with my part in wanting to do so!Today my posture has improved tremendously and I cannot thank Spencer enough for getting me to this point! The exercises are not difficult and As I see the progress, I am so much more encouraged in doing so! Thank you so much Spencer and the wonderful welcoming staff at Community Chiropractic Centre! I am truly blessed!
Spencer has been a great benefit to me, as he listens to what is wrong and works to help with that problem; so that I get some relief & can do more of my ADL. Before meeting Spencer & being under his care; I had very limited relief of discomfort. I would recommend anyone with chronic pain & skeletal ailments to give Spencer a try. He maybe just what you need in your life.

Spencer is an amazing osteopath. I brought my 3 week old to see him for colic and he has helped her immensely! She is now 3 months and doing so well. Spencer is fantastic with babies. He is so caring and my little just adores him! Highly recommend his service.

I actually love going to see Spencer. He addresses my problems and I'm not sitting around for hours past my appointment time waiting to see him. In and out within 30 minutes. He takes care of my kids as well. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.Thanks for keeping us all in one piece and keeping us at our 100% for our tournaments.
