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

Most of the time when a person carries a child, the main focus is on the child, and that's completely right and well. Obviously, you want to hold onto that sweet little one -- we're not going to fault you for that. However, at the same time, you can be friendly to your back while looking out for the young.

Read on for a few ways you can be spine-friendly with the munchkins around. So many of us either have kids, have family members or friends with kids, or come into contact with kids in our daily lives. If you're going to pick one up (make sure you have permission, of course), you should lift with your legs. Don't bend downwards and put awkward pressure on your spine and lower back.

For Those Who Have Kids and Those Who Are Expecting

Don't hold a baby outward as it also puts undue stress on your back -- the spine, the muscles, everything really. Hold the baby close to your body with a wrap-around. That way your muscles and back don't strain. Go one step further and get a fabric wrap or a back-friendly carrier to make sure you're not putting stress on your spine on a daily basis.

Engage Your Core

You've heard trainers say this before, but it doesn't make them any less right.

If you exercise your core -- your hips, abdomen, and lower back (the internal and external obliques, the rotatores, and the transversus abdominis) -- you're less likely to sustain an injury. Strengthening your core will end up strenghening your back in the process.

If you experience pain or stain in the back, the spine, the legs, or even any sort of persistent headache that you might think comes along with parenting or pregnancy, contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today for a consultation. There's a lot we can do the all-natural way, without prescription meds or cumbersomle surgery.
