Stress Free Gardening

By Barton Chiropractic Clinic | September 14, 2023 |

Gardening is supposed to soothe the body, mind, and soul.

Home is Where the Pool is, Happy 4th!

By Barton Chiropractic Clinic | July 4, 2023 |

Getting wet: refreshing for the mind and soul; and, incidentally, extremely beneficial for the spine. With the downward force of gravity suspended, feel your body come alive in the pool.

Talk about a 21st-century condition: the name itself is enough to conjure images of buses full of commuters, head-phones in and heads down, scrolling through their individual news feeds.
