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

Spinal stenosis is a disorder that you might not have heard about until affects you or someone you know. It's a disorder brought on by the narrowing of the spinal canal --  which comes as a result of facet joint and intervertebral disc degeneration. During spinal stenosis, bone spurs (also known as osteophytes) start to develop, which grow into your spinal canal. Your facet joints enlarge and become arthritic, which leaves minimal space for nerve roots. 

Spinal Stenosis and Spinal Distortion Symptoms Include:

Painful legs or buttocks, which is believed to be due to the compression of microvascular structures. Microvascular structures carry blood to nerve roots.

Patients living with spinal stenosis might also experience discomfort in the lower back area -- some might experience such severe discomfort that they won't be able to walk.

Some patients living with this unfortunate degenerative disease of the spine might not experience any symptoms at all.

In the most severe cases numbness may occur, or tingling, or weakness to the lower extremities.

A certain amount of spinal distortion is going to occur virtually every individual. For most of us, it's an unfortunate fact of life as we age. The severity of symptoms generally depends on the patient's spinal canal size as well as nerve encroachment. Deterioration rate will be different from patient to patient.

If you believe you suffer from spinal stenosis or spinal distortion, chiropractic care might be the right choice for you. Contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today to schedule your consultation.
