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

You only get one spine, and that can be a sad fact of reality to some. But others who choose to be conscious of their bodies and take charge of their wellness can start taking an interest in their spine health at any stage in life.

Read on to learn a few ways that you can keep your spine healthy, because your spine is at the center of everything, in charge of support of your body as well as protection of your internal organs and central nervous system.

As promised, here are a few ways you can increase your spine health on a daily basis.

Let Your Spine Rest

When you sleep, make sure that all of your spine structures are in a comfortable (and supported) resting position. Choice of pillows and mattress is entirely up to your preference, but your body will tell you quickly what it likes and does not like. You want the right blend of comfort and support.

Engage That Core of Yours

It's important to work and engage your core muscles as they are rarely used in everyday activities. Try targeted exercises, many of which you can do at home, in the office, or outside during a lunch break. People might look at you weird, but who cares? This is your wellness we're talking here. Your core is your midsection; it involves all muscles in that area (including the traverse abdominis (TVA), the obliques, lower lats, and your erector spinae. Your core acts as a stabilizer for your entire body.

Wear Good Shoes

Many of us are guilty of going cheap when it comes to work shoes. However, the fact that many of us work 40-60 hour work weeks, this can be a bad idea. Make sure to spring for shoes that provide good lower back support. Having a good base keeps your spine in line. Consider orthotics or inserts if you need more balance and support.

Another great way to take care of your spine is to visit your experienced chiropractor near you. Barton Chiropractic Clinic provides chiropractic care treatments year-round, for patients of all fitness levels and from all walks of life.
