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

The back can become injured in a variety of ways and it can happen even when we're doing the most innocuous activities.

However, there are certain types of back injuries that we see a lot of at Barton Chiropractic Clinic.  We specialize in drug-free treatments which help our patients recover from injury and enjoy a better quality of life. A large part of what we do as chiropractic care specialists is provide education and information to our patients and readership that can help them avoid back pain and avoid sustaining injury.

Read on for a few of the more common ways that people injure their backs.

Back Strain (and Sprain) 

It's a sad fact of reality that our lower backs end up taking the lion's share of the pressure, the largest amount of stress -- not to mention wear and tear. When we lift heavy, cumbersome objects and twist our backs, this can often result in injury or strain. Lumbar Strain is one possibility (occurring in the muscle fibers -- which become torn in the process), same with Lumbar Sprain (this happens when your bone-holding ligaments are torn). The lumbar spine is the most common area of injury when it comes to the back.

Herniated Disc

You've likely heard of this condition, but we'll elaborate on it anyway. Herniated discs occur during disc tear, which ends up spilling out, putting undue pressure on your surrounding nerves. This can result in sharp, shooting pains. This pain might radiate outward from the buttocks, reaching the backs of the legs (this is also referred to as sciatica), which will often be a sign of herniated disc.

Pinched Nerve

Nerve functionality can be damaged or compromised when nerve roots start to compress around your cervical vertebrae. This will, again, result in radiating pain, this time coming from your neck and shoulder region. Those who experience a pinched nerve might experience muscle weakness, tingling sensation, or a feeling of numbness in the extremities.

If you're experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned above, it's a good time to call your local Chiropractor. Barton Chiropractic Clinic serves the Homewood, IL area and its surrounding communities. Call today to schedule your consultation.
