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 3-part series, Barton Chiropractic Clinic goes over the 5 areas of your spine. Today we start with your Cervical Spine, which consists of the first seven vertebrae at the very top of the spine. In short, it's the neck area.

The Job of the Cervical Spine

Your cervical spine has the vital job of supporting your head. Your cervical spine also enables flexibility and movement while facilitating blood flow to your brain. Your cervical spine houses and protects the top section of your spinal chord.

Cervical Spine Misalignment

Physical traumas and more minor stressors can have an impact on your cervical spine. Having bad posture is another way to get your cervical spine misaligned. Subluxations occur when vertebrae get knocked out of alignment, putting pressure on spinal nerves, which disrupts communication between the brain and the rest of the body.

The Many C's

Your C1-C7 communicates with optic nerves, auditory nerves, sinuses, pituitary gland, scalp, face bones, cheeks, outer ear, vocal chords, neck muscles, shoulders, tonsils, thyroid gland, elbows, and so much more! So, as you can imagine, a subluxation in your cervical spine can cause some serious troubles.

So, what to do when you have troubles in your cervical spine? Contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today. Schedule your initial consultation and we'll get you back to active in no time.

Stay tuned for our next entry, which covers your thoracic spine!
