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

It’s the dead of winter, so maybe the last thing you’re thinking is what to do for less obvious forms of exercise that get you outdoors. Or, maybe you’re an outdoor enthusiast who doesn’t let the fickle seasons dictate whether or not you get your daily dose of mother nature.

Get Outside While Being Good to Your Back

If you engage in certain activities safely, you can benefit your spine and back at the same time. We’re not talking about bungee jumping or hang-gliding when we say outdoor activities, either (neither of which are good for your spine).

Here are some activities that incorporate spine health into your routine.

Cycling

Cycling is a great activity, as long as you’re not riding on uneven or rocky surfaces. Notice how we didn’t say mountain biking, which will often put a lot of undue stress on your back and your discs. Keep your back straight and make sure your seat is at the proper level.

Swimming

Swimming we highly recommend because there is no impact whatsoever. Sure, there will be a little bit of pressure on your bones, joints, and muscles, but your movements underwater will help build muscle and increase flexibility. There’s a reason why many physical therapists have their patients swim during recovery.

Hiking

Stay mindful of rocky surfaces. Make sure you get a good stretch in before you hit the trails. Use a backpack that is designed for support, wear the right hiking boots, and incorporate any protective equipment you might need (walking poles, gloves, etc.).

These are 3 great ways to stay active, to avoid the humdrum of the gym, and to set your spine up for success. We'd like to give an honorable mention to paddle boarding, which is great for your back and core, and low-impact at that! 

If you're ever having trouble with your back, or if your spine is keeping you anything less than active, contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today.
