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 the spirit of the summer season (which is still very much in full swing), we'd like to talk about one possible outdoor activity that is great for your back and core -- both of which are instrumental in your spine health.

Today's blog goes over a few reasons why paddle-boarding is worth your consideration. Read on and maybe we'll make a believer out of you.

1.) It's a total body workout

All of your main muscle groups become activated as you paddle and stabilize yourself on the board. Your mid back muscles (latissimus Dorsi), abs, arms (biceps and triceps), and shoulders (deltoids) are all incorporated, not to mention your thighs and calves. Paddle-boarding really is a workout that incorporates your entire body -- all you're doing is reaping physical rewards from engaging your core.

2.) It's soothing

Usually, paddle-boarding will have you out on a scenic lake, taking in the visuals, breathing fresh air, and becoming one with mother nature. Stress is a key contributor to subluxation (spine misalignment), so it's important to take some time out from the daily grind to do something good for yourself.

3.) It's a well-balanced activity

Getting outdoors and in nature will help your mind and your spirit. The rigorous activity will help your body. It's a great activity to strengthen your back and your core, which will help you enjoy lasting wellness and spine health.

If you're feeling anything less than 100% when it comes to your back, neck, or even your legs, contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today. We'll schedule your consultation and get you back to active!
