A Note To our valued Patients and Staff

To our valued Patients and Staff,
There is no higher priority to our patients and staff than everyone’s safety. Be assured that we are monitoring the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), government agencies, and internal teams to stay on top of this evolving situation. According to the most recent information from the CDC, for most people, the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to be minimal. However, the World Health Organization has recently declared Coronavirus as a global pandemic.
We want you to feel confident when coming to our office. As a result, we have enhanced some of our cleaning procedures in the interest of our patient’s and employees' health and safety.
Office Cleaning: We clean all equipment and other surfaces after every patient. Typically, we use an EPA approved, hospital-grade disinfectant in the lavatories and on equipment. Now, we are expanding the use of bleach and disinfectant throughout the office, on elements in the front and back office, and in the lavatory.
In addition, we want to remind our patients that if you are scheduled for non-emergency care and you are sick, stay home or take precautions by wearing a mask. We also have masks available for your use. If you are unable to keep your appointment, please have the courtesy to call our office to reschedule your appointment.
Thank you for your patience and trust in Barton Chiropractic Clinic, P.C.. We are prepared to navigate through these challenging circumstances with your safety and confidence in Barton Chiropractic at the forefront of everything we do.
We look forward to seeing you soon,
Dr. Diane Barton

Having trouble believing that Spring has sprung? As we continue to advance in years, it seems like the seasons come and go with breakneck speed. It's important that as time winds up and lurches forward that your spine isn't in a knot -- it can cause all sorts of problems for you as you engage in those springtime activities, like camping, kayaking, kite-flying, beach-going, mini golfing, and more.

Stuff You Can Do to Protect Your Spine

Even something like Spring cleaning requires you stretching and putting your body in unusual positions that you're not used to, which can incite injury quite easily. All it takes is a sneeze or a jerk while you're in the wrong position and your back is done for, putting you out of commission for weeks.

Stay conditioned and make sure you stretch on a regular basis. This will keep your body strong and flexible, ready to endure any sort of pressure you put on it.

Taking your time as you go through your seasonal chores will go a long way, too. Don't try to jam everything into one Saturday, or a weekend. Budget your chores out over the entire month of March to ease into things. The same goes for your fitness routine. The idea is to build a reliable, consistent practice, not burn yourself out.

Hit the Links Softly, Unless You Golf Year Round

If you're getting back into the swing of things, you might want to practice your golf swing beforehand. It's also a good idea to schedule an adjustment with Barton Chiropractic Clinic. Take gentle swings at first. Maybe start with a 9-hole before you play two rounds in a day. Invest time into making sure that your swing is smooth and even, and that your swing rotates and shares the load between your shoulder, pelvis and your thoracolumbar segments.

Travel Smart, Travel Light

When you travel, it puts a lot of pressure on your back and spine, especially if you carry large, cumbersome bags along with you. If you're on a flight for long periods of time, it might be a good idea to incorporate a stretch routine with some Yoga-style moves, focusing on your hips and your lower back in the process.

We hope some of these tips help you as the seasons change. We're all about keeping our patients and readers active year-round. If your back, spine, hips, or legs are feeling anything less than 100%, chiropractic care is an avenue worth pursuing. Schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Barton today at (708) 922-1400.
