Dusyk & Barlow  - COVID-19 continued service plan for the health and safety of staff and customers


Dear Dusyk & Barlow clients


We have been working diligently to develop plans for our offices in preparation for the potential impacts of COVID-19.  We are constantly referencing and utilizing the information available from World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Health Canada to create and update these plans as needed.


Using the information currently available, we have implemented various staff safety protocols including:

  • requirements that employees remain at home if they or an immediate member of their household are not feeling well and have symptoms of an illness, until the symptoms have passed. 

  • those experiencing flu-like symptoms, are required to consult a doctor or call the health line to seek medical care/advice.  

  • Staff who are in positions that allow remote work will be able to do so if they find themselves in a quarantine situation that allows for such an option. We are working to ensure we are properly set-up for work from home options.  

  • we have implemented a ban on business travel and are encouraging staff to change out of office appointments of more than 10 people, even here in the city, to telephone appointments.


We have ramped up daily office cleaning routines including regularly wiping down and sanitizing workspace and counter areas. 

We encourage both our employees and clients to maintain good health practices including: 

  • washing hands properly and regularly; 

  • using hand sanitizer whenever possible; 

  • maintaining a healthy lifestyle (ex. proper diet, sleep and exercise) to help keep the immune system strong; 

  • respecting social distances when appropriate (ex. 2 meter distance; respect choice to not shake hands).


Although we prefer to deal with our clients face-to-face, we are in a business where most of our services can still be effectively provided in a socially distanced fashion such as via telephone or email.  As such, we ask that our clients observe the same protocols we are asking of our staff. For the good of all in the community, we ask that clients please remain home if they, or anyone they have been in close contact with, are experiencing any symptoms listed above.  If those experiencing symptoms do require our services, rest assured we will do so via telephone, email or fax.


We want to protect the health and well-being of our employees and clients and, if need be, will amend plans accordingly by continuing to monitor recommendations through the noted health agencies.

Dr. Shawn Bachorick, Chiropractor shares some helpful information about Concussions Part 2

Based out of Riverview Health Professionals, Dr. Bachorick enjoys working with patients who have complex and challenging problems, He finds his training in neurology has been an immense help in assisting all of his patients improve their health and level of function. Dr Bachorick has spent this much time and energy pursuing this knowledge because it has been invaluable in learning new treatment approaches to complex and chronic problems.

In his previous post Dr. Shawn Bachorick explained some information about what is a concussion, who is most at risk and prognosis.  

Here he continues his discussion and gives us some more in depth information and insight. 

In the acute, initial stages of concussion there are a few potentially serious conditions that need to be ruled out for patient safety. Skull fractures and bleeds in the brain are rare but potentially fatal sequelae to concussion injuries. CT is the preferred option for these, with MRI more helpful for detecting bleeds after more than a day or two. fMRI (functional MRI) is commonly able to demonstrate brain activity patterns which can correlate to injury severity and potential for recovery.

Assessment of balance is very important and not just in patients whose symptoms include complaints of dizziness or vertigo. Assessment of inner ear function and movements of the eyes is a necessity. Commonly, concussion patients will have dysfunction of eye tracking (horizontal and /or vertical) as well as poor ability to track a target towards their nose, difficulty keeping their eyes on a target while moving their head and others. I prefer basic cognitive testing in any concussion patient with more advanced evaluation by a trained neuropsychologist performed in cases of delayed recovery. Occasionally neck injuries will mimic concussion. These cases can be much easier to resolve through basic manual therapy treatments like chiropractic and massage, physiotherapy, etc.


There are several nutritional supplements that can be helpful in minimizing neuroinflammation and cell death from injury-related damage. Magnesium, fish oil, turmeric and resveratrol are some of the most commonly used. Other supplements are useful in delayed recovery and post-concussion syndrome. These are often involved with problems in blood sugar, cerebral blood flow, various aspects of gut function and excessive immune activation in the brain.


When you are ready to start treatment, after more serious possibilities have been eliminated, begin in a cautious fashion aiming to minimize symptom aggravation. Ideally we want to see some improvement in abnormal test results (sway less on balance testing, do eye exercises without getting a headache, etc.), but the main goal is to establish limits on how much stimulation the patient can endure. Once that is established, they can be given home exercise/therapy with firm guidelines on when to stop. As the patient demonstrates improved stamina, the intensity, frequency and duration of rehab can be increased gradually. Treatment needs to be individualized for each client. Although different concussions have common features, there can be a wide disparity in how they respond to various treatments. The important point is that treatments need to demonstrate improvement in function (balance, eye movements, cognitive testing, etc.). Relying only on symptoms is not a valid or successful strategy for managing these injuries. Treatment should be performed at a stimulation level that does not significantly trigger symptoms or cause any worsening of test results. 

There are several professionals commonly involved in concussion management. These range from chiropractors and physiotherapists dealing with spinal and rehab issues(or, depending on training, inner ear and/or eye movement issues) to neuropsychologists (assessment of cognitive, memory, emotional issues) and rehabilitation optometrists (advanced training in vision rehab). Some concussions resolve in an uncomplicated manner, but others may require the expertise of several or even all of the aforementioned professions.

If you suffer from post concussion symptoms, book an appointment with Dr. Shawn Bachorick today. His training in neurology has been an immense help in assisting all of his patients improve their health and level of function.

Dr. Shawn Bachorick, Chiropractor shares some helpful information about Concussions 

Lots of media about this issue with high-profile athletes having their careers jeopardized by concussions. However, you don’t have to be a famous football or hockey player to end up suffering the effects of a concussion.

What is a concussion? 

Simply, it is a traumatic brain injury which impairs brain function and commonly causes symptoms including, but not limited to, dizziness, nausea, cognitive impairment, headache, visual disturbances and balance problems.

Who is most at risk? 

Obviously participants in contact sports (martial arts, football, rugby, hockey, etc.), but other sports like soccer, baseball often see accidental contact lead to problems as well. Other traumas like car accidents and falls are also frequent causes of concussion. 


Prognosis 

The majority of people will recover from their symptoms in a few weeks. However, this does not mean that they are fine. There is promising research in blood biomarkers for concussion injury and recovery which suggests that the healing process takes much longer than previously thought. This is why anyone experiencing concussion-like symptoms needs a thorough evaluation by professionals with substantial training in the field. “How many fingers do you see” is not adequate. These patients also require follow-up to ensure recovery of function, not just symptom reduction. 

In the case of a suspected concussion, players need to be removed from play until they can be properly evaluated. A quick sideline evaluation can be performed in less than 5 minutes and will test many of the parts of the brain commonly affected by these injuries. My preferred screening tool is the Vestibular/Oculomotor Screen (VOMS). It quickly tests the function of the inner ear and parts of the brain associated with eye movement. Other good tools include the Maddocks questions:

1) Where are we playing today?

2) What period/quarter/inning are we in?

3) What team did we play last game? Did we win/what was score?

Depending on the sport/circumstance and patient age the questions may need to vary. But the injured person needs to be tested as to their knowledge of location, time/date, short-term and long-term memory function. 

In the case of loss of consciousness or severe symptoms (confusion, headache, dizziness), it is important for the injured person to be evaluated for the need for MRI or CT evaluation to rule out potentially life-threatening brain bleeds. This also applies to individuals who display increasing severity of symptoms (e.g.: headache keeps getting worse).  CT is usually the best test in the early stages. 


If you suffer from post concussion symptoms, book an appointment with Dr. Shawn Bachorick today. His training in neurology has been an immense help in assisting all of his patients improve their health and level of function.
