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

Read on for what might be an unpopular opinion, but what also might be the difference between having a healthy back or a shoddy spine for St. Patrick's Day.

St. Patrick's Day is the day we all get to be a little bit Irish, right? Some of us might even plan a trip out to Ireland to visit The Blarney Stone (Irish: Cloch na Blarnan). This block of Carboniferous limestone was built into the battlements of Blarney Castle, which is about 8 kilometres (5 miles) away from Cork. Kiss the stone, gain the gift of gab, legend has it.

Bending Over Backwards

But did you know that you literally have to bend over backwards to kiss the Blarney Stone? If you're not properly used to doing that sort of motion -- many of us aren't, as a matter of fact -- you could risk back injury.

Make sure you give yourself a good stretch before performing your Blarney Stone kiss, if you must. Before you venture out to Ireland, engage in some yoga classes, which will increase your flexibility. Incorporate some cardio and core training to make sure you're travel-ready. It's a hike up there, and you have to complete the act by ascending the castle's peak to get to the stone, then bend over backwards over a railing while someone assists you. Proceed with caution.

What if You Hurt Your Back During Your Travels?

That's okay. A UNC School of Medicine study found that 80% of people will suffer a back injury during their lifetime. But it's important you call Barton Chiropractic Clinic immediately. We have treatments and can provide adjustments that will have you back in tip-top shape. Call (708) 922-1400 to schedule your initial consultation today.
