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

In this day and age many of us wrongfully overvalue requiring little or no sleep to go through our daily lives. You might hear about the high-powered executive only sleeping 4-6 hours nightly. Maybe that works for them now, but that lifestyle is sure to catch up with them down the road.

Read on to learn how prolonged lack of sleep can lead to all sorts of health problems and diseases, even Alzheimer's.

Are You Putting Sleep in the Backburner?

Chronic sleep loss can put you at an increased at risk for the following:

  • Heart Disease / Heart Failure
  • Heart attack / Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Irregular Heartbeat

Lack of sleep can also affect your sex drive if those serious health issues mentioned above aren't enough for you.

The Chronic Sleep Deprivation / Alzheimer's Connection

Prolonged lack of sleep has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease. Why? Because there's strong evidence that a good night’s sleep is important for clearing beta-amyloid out of your brain, which is a type of metabolic waste product found in the fluid between neurons. Beta-amyloid buildup impairs brain function and, consequently, is a huge contributor to Alzheimer’s disease.

Lack of Sleep and Dim Bulb

Dim bulb is a condition where you're not firing on all cylinders. Chiropractic adjustments have been proven not only to help body functionality but also improve brain functionality. Lack of sleep can lead to slower hand-eye coordination, which puts you and others at risk when you're on the road and makes you less-than-effective in your daily life.

What is a good night of sleep? Nothing less than 7-9 hours on a nightly basis.
