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

Ice therapy is an excellent companion to chiropractic care for the athlete and for regular folks who work busy workweeks as well.

What is Ice Therapy?

Ice therapy entaisl the application of ice as a method of reducing inflammation and temporary pain in the body.

What Happens During Ice Therapy?

During ice therapy, ice inspires constriction in the veins of the affected tissues of the body, which ends up limiting blood flow -- which acts as an all-natural, drug-free anesthetic. When we remove the ice, your blood will rush back to the  area, which will provide useful nutrients which will help boost the healing process.

When is Ice Therapy Useful?

Ice therapy is incredibly useful for the treatment of back and neck pain and lessens muscle spasm severity, reduces overall pain without drug intervention, and also aids in diminishing soft tissue damage.

If performing ice therapy at home, you should apply an ice pack to the affected area within 24-48 hours from your initial ache or injury. You can reapply every 10 minutes to achieve maximum effect. Do not leave on for more than 20 minutes at a time.

Ice therapy should not be used by patients who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, Raynaud's Syndrome, colds or allergic conditions, paralysis, or areas of impaired sensation should not use ice therapy.
