Dr. Roby Taylor Myers, Owner & Lead Chiropractor at East Coast Elite Chiropractic-Sports Performance & Rehab
I appreciate all the support over the last 2 years while setting up my new practice. I have had successful results with over 90-95% of my patients with disc injuries/ neck/ back pain in utilizing the DTS table as a stand alone treatment. I will be honest- it was a tough decision initially because of the financial investment/ commitment while I was starting practice. I am glad that I decided to integrate the DTS into my practice from the start because of the referrals and the wonderful response from my patients. Thanks again for all your help over the last 2 years and continued support.

Disinfectants and Sanitizers
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What disinfectants are used in a chiropractor’s office?
As healthcare providers, chiropractors take infection prevention seriously, and disinfecting common surfaces is a crucial part of keeping patients safe. There are several disinfectants that chiropractors commonly use. One of the most commonly used is alcohol-based solutions, which can kill bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Quaternary ammonium compounds (quats) such as benzalkonium chloride are also popular disinfectants in chiropractor's offices, as they are effective against a broad range of microorganisms. Hydrogen peroxide-based disinfectants are also useful in reducing the spread of infections in a chiropractor's office. These solutions, available in many forms including disinfecting wipes, disinfectant sprays, and pumpable hand sanitizers and soaps, are just a few of the disinfectants that chiropractors use to ensure that their patients are not exposed to harmful bacteria or viruses during their visits.
What is the difference between sanitizers and disinfectants?
Sanitizers and disinfectants are both used to kill germs and bacteria, but they differ in their approach. Sanitizers are intended to decrease the number of germs and bacteria on surfaces to a safe level, while disinfectants are designed to completely eliminate them. Although effective in most situations, sanitizers should not be used in high-risk areas, such as hospitals or public restrooms. In summary, sanitizers are great for everyday use, while disinfectants should be reserved for areas where a greater level of germ and bacteria elimination is necessary.
Do you sanitize or disinfect first?
While both sanitizing and disinfecting are effective methods for killing germs and bacteria, they have different purposes. Sanitizing reduces the number of germs on surfaces to a safe level while disinfecting kills a higher percentage of germs and viruses. So, which should you do first? The answer depends on what you’re cleaning. If you’re dealing with a particularly dirty surface with visible debris, it’s important to clean it first to remove any grime or dirt. From there, you can sanitize or disinfect as necessary. However, if you’re dealing with a surface that’s already relatively clean, you can go straight to sanitizing or disinfecting. Medical environments, for example, require disinfectants between patients whereas cleaning with a quality sanitizer in the home will most likely suffice.
What are the main types of sanitizer?
Sanitizers play an important role in keeping hard surfaces and hands clean and free of harmful bacteria. There are several types of sanitizer, each with its own unique characteristics and purpose. Alcohol-based sanitizers like hand sanitizers are the most commonly used type and effectively kill a variety of pathogens. Chlorine-based sanitizers are often used in the food industry and can be effective against viruses and bacteria. Quaternary ammonium sanitizers are popular in healthcare settings and are effective against a wide range of microbes. Lastly, hydrogen peroxide-based sanitizers are becoming increasingly popular due to their eco-friendliness and broad-spectrum effectiveness against bacteria and viruses. Sanitizer wipes and sanitzing sprays are both popular options for cleaning hard surfaces; while sanitizing detergents are effective for cleaning soft materials in the washing machine. Choosing the right sanitizer for your facility is crucial for maintaining a clean and safe environment for your clients.
What are the most common disinfectants?
Disinfectants are chemical agents used to destroy harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi on equipment and tools. They are essential to maintaining cleanliness and hygiene in the office space, treatment rooms and patient waiting areas. The most common disinfectants include bleach, hydrogen peroxide, alcohol, quaternary ammonium compounds, and chlorine dioxide. Each disinfectant has its unique mode of action, and the choice of disinfectant depends on the pathogens to be eliminated, the type of surface or equipment, and the degree of contamination. It is essential to use disinfectants correctly to prevent the spread of infectious diseases and promote public health.
What sanitizers and disinfectants do hospitals use?
In a medical setting, selecting the proper sanitizers and disinfectants is crucial to maintain a safe environment. The best sanitizers and disinfectants in this setting are those that can eliminate a wide range of bacteria and viruses. For sanitizers, look for alcohol-based solutions known for their fast-acting and proven efficacy. As disinfectants typically rely on chemical solutions such as bleach or hydrogen peroxide to kill a wider range of pathogens than most sanitizers, be sure to look for a product with the right active ingredients for your establishment. Broad-spectrum disinfectants include Protex, Lucas Products, and ecodioxide. It is important to note that using the appropriate concentration and contact time for these solutions is essential to ensure their effectiveness.
