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

We'd like to go over some pursuits, activities, and everyday acts that many of us engage in that are less than ideal for our spine in addition to other areas of the body, like the lower back and the neck, for instance.

At Barton Chiropractic Clinic we believe just as much in preventive medicine as we do in our Chiropractic Care treatments -- which is why we like to provide educational materials to our diverse patient base as well as our readership online.

Read on for key contributors to spine pain.

Lack of Exercise

This is particularly true of your abdominal strength-building exercises -- also has to do with "engaging your core," which you've probably heard many fitness enthusiasts talk about.

Lack of exercise also contributes to poor posture, which can inevitably lead to lower back pain. Being active and working your core will increase your stability when it comes to the back muscles, which will help prevent future injury. Do lots of cardio, like swimming, walking, and bicycling. If you run, it's important to complement your training with Chiropractic Care.

Sitting All Day / Poor Posture

It's a sad reality that many of us spend long periods of time sitting at a desk -- if not all day. We stare at the computer screen at weird angles and many of us practice less than perfect posture (to put it lightly). It's important to invest in an ergonomic chair that has a head and neck rest. 

Improper Lifting

This is one of the most common culprits when it comes to back injury. When you're lifting objects that are anything over 5-10 lbs, it's important to incorporate your legs and that you keep the weight close to the body. In other words, don't hold what you're carrying away from the body.

If you take these considerations to heart, you may just end up sparing yourself an injury. But we do know that accidents happen. And if such an event occurs, contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today to schedule your consultation. We provide wide-ranging, drug-free treatments that will get you back to active in no time.
