“Regulated health professionals are prohibited from providing in-person services except those services they deem essential for the health and wellbeing of their clients.

Any chiropractor conducting urgent or emergency care services must consult the Guidance for Primary Care Providers in Community Setting document. 

Accordingly, the definitions below should help you to determine whether cases are urgent:

 1. The patient is in an urgent state if they would be severely physically limited from basic daily activities without chiropractic care. Severe limitations could require patients to seek further medical services (e.g. emergency care) if left untreated.

2. The patient is in an urgent state if left untreated would be vulnerable to an acute flare-up that could leave them severely physically limited from basic daily activities.

3. Patients who are not experiencing urgent-type pain or dysfunction as described above, are not considered emergent care.
