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 Piriformis is one of your smaller muscles which is located deep in the buttocks -- right behind the gluteus maximus. Your Piriformis runs from the lower spine to the upper femur in a diagonal fashion. Your sciatic nerve runs underneath (or through) the muscle. The piriformis muscle helps the hip rotate, turning the leg and foot outward. The Piriformis is the muscle responsible for hip rotation and gives you the ability to turn your foot and leg outward.

Being that the Piriformis is in close proximity to the sciatic nerve, trouble can arise. One such case is Piriformis Syndrome, which is a condition that causes pain due to the muscle tightening and intruding upon the sciatic nerve in the buttock area. Pain, numbness, tenderness, and other symptoms can occur, including radiating pain that can run down the leg, sometimes reaching down to the calf.

Piriformis Syndrome Has 2 Possible Causes

Piriformis Syndrome can arise from either sitting for long periods of time, or from an injury to the buttocks (usually a fall, an athletic injury, or something of the like). Trauma such as injury can cause the Piriformis to expand, swell, and irritate your sciatic nerve. Spasms are also another issue that can cause Piriformis Syndrome.

Chiropractic treatment offers a variety of options to treat and heal Piriformis Syndrome.

Treat Your Piriformis Syndrome with Chiropractic Care!

When it comes to chiropractors, they view the patient's whole body in its entirety view the body in its entirety, which will often extend to the leg and buttocks areas.  Your chiropractor has the power to utilize a regimen of pelvic and spinal adjustments, or even joint manipulation or stretching which will end up loosening the muscle, helping to heal the affected area.

If you need help treating your Piriformis Syndrome, contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today. We have a long, successful track record of treating pain and injury the drug-free way.
