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

As we continue through the dog days of summer, it's important that we remind ourselves to stay hydrated. It's easy to forget for long periods of time to drink water -- and please don't consider your morning coffee as your first glass of water. 

Instead, drink half your body weight in ounces -- which is the requisite amount of water to consume in a day. You want your urine (sorry) to be mostly clear. If it's intensely yellow or even brownish in color, you're already dehydrated.

Below are a few reasons why it's a good idea to stay hydrated -- for your health!

1.) It's Good for Your Joints

If there's ever been such a thing as a magical elixir, it's H2O. Making sure you're properly hydrated ensure toxins get flushed out of your body. Water helps your joints stay well-lubricated -- it even helps prevent bouts with gout! 

2.) Staying Hydrated Fight Inflammation

Because staying hydrated helps flush toxins out of your body, this reduces the body's inflammation. Inflammation can lead to all sorts of health problems, 

including (but not limited to) certain types of cancers as well as rheumatoid arthritis.

3.) Dehydration is Hard on Your Heart

When you're dehydrated, your blood volume gets lower, so that means your heart has to work harder in order to pump this reduced amount of blood to supply your cells with oxygen. Everyday activities become harder when you're dehydrated -- simple tasks like walking up stairs, not to mention exercise.

So stay hydrated out there as a part of your overall wellness plan. Another part of your overall wellness plan is regular visits to your chiropractic treatment specialist in Homewood, IL. Contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic to schedule your consultation today.
