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

Leg pain can put a real damper on anyone's day. Most of us take our legs for granted every day, only realizing how delicate the balance of our body is when it gets thrown out of whack.

If you’re experiencing leg pain, it could be due to a problem with your back, as a matter of fact.

Barton Chiropractic Clinic runs into many cases where our patients experience pain that is not limited to just areas of their back or spine. The sciatic nerve is actually the largest nerve in the entire human body. Problems with the sciatic nerve happen to be the number one cause of leg pain.

Sciatica and Leg Pain

Sciatica is believed to be caused by nerve dysfunction, which is likely caused by compression of one or multiple lumbar or sacral nerve roots brought on by herniated disc (when the disc’s liquid center swells and bulges). These bulging discs push against external ring fibers, making contact with the spinal canal, compressing the nerve root against the lamina or pedicle of a vertebra.

Sciatica can extend all the way down to the foot. Patients often experience numbness, tingling, even burning or pricking sensations.

Radiculopathy is So Not Radical

Radiculopathy is another condition that can result in leg pain caused by nerve root problems. It can be caused by direct pressure from herniated discs or degenerative conditions in the lumbar spine. Irritation and inflammation occurs.

Herniated Disc and Pinched Nerve

Herniated disc and pinched nerve can also result in leg pain. Discs can not only bulge, they can rupture or even tear. This also results in leg pain that can happen while walking, or when immobile.

We think we've made our point. Leg pain can mean there's a lot more going on than just problems with your legs. If you’re experiencing leg pain, maybe it has something to do with your back. Don’t accept living in pain. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Diane Barton today. During your initial visit we'll discuss our wide range of treatments and solutions that will increase your quality of life.
