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

In this day and age, many of us are hard-pressed to identify a time in our recent lives where we took a day away from screens -- whether it be the computer, TV, or our smartphones. As a result, many people out there suffer from neck tension, neck pain, and some even tendonitis in the neck.

Tendonitis has to due with tendons suffering from inflammation which generally comes about from overuse and failing to practice good posture.

Many athletes experience neck tendonitis, especially MMA fighters, who often spend time "in the clinch," which really does a number on the neck. That's probably why many professional MMA fighters have close relationships with their local chiropractors.

The good news is that there are things you can do at home to help treat neck pain and tendonitis. For one, start stretching in the morning and in the evening -- even just 10 minutes each time will do your neck a tremendous amount of good. 

Next, make sure that you limit excessive neck movement while you perform your own PT. Give yourself a week or two of limiting extraneous movement. Make sure you practice perfect posture and try to limit the amount of time you spend sitting during the day by standing.

Do minimal resistance exercises with your neck -- make sure not to overdo it, because you'll end up doing more harm than good. Slowly building your surrounding neck muscles will give you more support and provide pain relief.

Massage your neck -- do it with your own hands, if you have to. There are tons of good products on the market, but make sure you consult with a professional to make some recommendations.

Chiropractic treatment is also a drug-free alternative to medication and surgery that will help treat your neck pain the all-natural way. Contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today to learn more.
