Chiropractic Offices are Using UVC Lighting to Sterilize During COVID-19

Hygiene and cleaning protocols have always been especially important in medical offices, but never more so than in 2020. Especially during COVID times, it’s important to have your offices, homes, and places of work immaculately clean so germs don’t cultivate and spread within them. Doctor Jayson Sher, DC, our Doctors on Liens’ chiropractor in West Los Angeles, has been stepping up his game with UVC Lighting Technology. He shared with us a quick tip on utilizing UVC sterilization as an extra precaution during COVID.

Dr. Sher, DC explained that UVC Lighting is used in most hospitals and operating rooms to clean the room completely in 59.9 seconds. This is something he is happy to utilize in his chiropractic office. You can turn on a timer, set it for 5 minutes, and wait for the light to sanitize the room. He ensures this procedure is implemented as part of his cleaning protocols in between every patient. This makes sure each patient receives a clean room with purified air. The system he utilizes is a brand-new technology and it is in every treatment room of his West Los Angeles office.

UVC Lighting (also called Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradation- UVGI) is a disinfecting method that works by using ultraviolet light to kill (or inactivate) microorganisms (such as bacteria, viruses, mold, and more) by destroying their DNA. As mentioned above by Doctor Sher, DC, this method has been used to sterilize food, air, water, and locations, especially in hospitals and doctors’ offices. This method can be coupled with a filtration system to sanitize air and water in most environments. With the rise of COVID, this technology is even being implemented on planes and in many more practical situations, especially in chiropractic offices such as Dr. Sher’s location.
