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

Barton Chiropractic Clinic we honor the inborn potential of all our patients to be truly healthy. A part of health and wellness is taking care of our bodies, which go through a lot of wear and tear, not just when we're exercising, but when we're going through our daily activities. Our jobs, stuff we do at home -- it all has an effect on our bodies after prolonged periods of time as well as repetition.

Below are a few stretches that are beneficial for your back. Stretching has many benefits and it's meant to be used not just before and after workouts, but as a daily ritual for wellness and body balance.

1.) Lumbar Extension Stretches

This stretch is done by lying on your stomach and pressing your palms flat on the floor or matt's surface with your elbows bent. Lift your upper torso slowly while keeping your hips and pelvis flat on the surface. Pro tip: make sure you keep your back muscles relaxed!  Make sure you only go as high as you are comfortable with. Try to aim for 10 repetitions while holding each for 10 seconds. Eventually, work your way up to 30 seconds.

2.) Lumbar Flexion Stretches

We're a big fan of stretches that engage your lumbar spine. Start by lying flat on your bag, then bring your knees up to your chest, hugging them closely towards your chest. You can perform this stretch for 2-3 repetitions, make sure to hold each one for 15-30 seconds. You can perform this stretch with one or both legs at a time.

3.) Prayer Stretch / Child's Pose

Do this stretch on your hands and knees. Sit back so that your buttocks are resting on your heels, then reach your hands forward and lengthen your spine. When done correctly, you should feel a stretch in your middle back. Reach your hands to either side in order to focus your stretch on the opposite side of the spine. Make sure to hold this pose for 10-30 seconds. Perform 2-3 repetitions.

We hope some of this helps. If you have back pain / spine problems that continue to persist, schedule a consultation with Barton Chiropractic Clinic today.
