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

Chronic pain can cause a person to suffer from multiple problems that exist beyond the actual pain aspect. Chronic pain can cause anxiety and make a person feel like they're losing control of their body -- which is the ultimate humbling experience. 

Living with chronic pain is no easy task, but learning a few coping methods can help patients navigate their lives with less anxiety and more acceptance.

Though we treat patients who suffer from neck, back, and leg pain, we also deal with patients who suffer from chronic pain, and a large part of what we do is educate our patients and readership about ways they can live their best lives, which includes natural, at-home pain management techniques. Read on for 3 ways to cope with chronic pain at home, without resorting to prescription medication.

1.) Practice Meditation and Deep Breathing

There's a reason why monks are able to sit in extreme temperatures and never break their meditation. It's because the mind is a powerful tool. Meditation can help reduce anxiety, and deep breathing techniques have been shown to bring calmness to the mind and the body. A balance of meditation, deep breathing, and yoga (if you're physician permits) can all work as a wellness trifecta, helping reduce pain and mental clutter.

2.) Get with a Support Group

If you suffer from chronic pain, there are support groups who meet regularly as a way to communicate and spread information. These people will understand what you go through on a daily basis and may even have answers to some of your problems and questions.

3.) Chart Progress and Acknowledge Success of All Sizes

Keep track of the healthy things you're doing with your mind and your body. Invest in a dry erase board and log how many times you meditate, eat healthily, and do yoga. Set positive yet realistic goals and reward yourself when you achieve them. Having a positive frame of mind is key to successful pain management.

If you suffer from back, leg, or neck pain, schedule a consultation with Barton Chiropractic Clinic today. We have a long demonstrated history of treating many different types of pain the natural, holistic way.
