The short answer: A resounding YES!
Chiropractic treatment has been shown to be beneficial for patients of all ages and from all walks of life -- basketball players included.
One simple chiropractic adjustment can have just about any basketball player feeling re-calibrated -- spine misalignment can result in less sharp cognitive abilities, which will make your reaction time slower and your decision-making on the court of less high quality.
Chiropractic treatment has been shown to provide patients with a better night of sleep as well as drug-free pain relief, which will help basketball players recover from their workouts faster and more fully.
Jumping up and down on either the hardwood or on concrete courts will certainly cause the body to experience trauma and tension. One way to counteract this abuse you put your body through as a basketball player is to explore the many benefits of chiropractic treatment. Contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today to learn more about why professional athletes of all sports utilize chiropractic treatment in order to stay a few steps ahead of the game.
You've likely heard about us raving about the immense benefits one simple chiropractic adjustment brings our patients. But maybe you're still unclear about what exactly a chiropractic adjustment is. No need to fret! Barton Chiropractic Clinic is here to clarify any questions you might have about what a chiropractic adjustment entails in this handy-dandy article.
A chiropractic adjustment, performed by a chiropractic specialist, is a controlled thrust in a given area of the body -- most often your spine or some sort of joint in question. The goal of the chiropractic adjustment is to restore movement to the spine and the body's extremities.
When a chiropractic adjustment occurs, receptors inside the joint experience a huge amount of relief, which inspires the brain to reduce pain signals that are coming from the joint.
Chiropractic adjustments are safe when performed by a trained and licensed chiropractic specialist. One simple chiropractic adjustment can provide drug-free pain relief, improve your nightly sleep, boost mood, improve brain activity, and much, much more.

At Barton Chiropractic Clinic sometimes we think it's best to tell it like it is. 2020 has been a real mulligan of a year and as we take this roller coaster ride to its finale, it doesn't seem like things are getting any less stressful. We're in the middle of a very important election year and no matter on which side of the line you stand, you're likely stressed about how things are going to go down.
However, we'd like to remind our patients and readership that there's only ever been one thing you can control in this life, and that's YOU. So, let's take a moment to think about some healthy things we can all do for ourselves to get the most out of October, regardless of what's going on in the world around us.
First, build a yoga practice, which will release tension in the body, not to mention help you get in tune with your mind/body/breathing connection. It's therapeutic as all get out.
Next, try to meditate for a few minutes each day as a way to let your mind settle. Think of the inside of your head as a busy snow globe -- all you're doing is letting those little snowflakes (restless thoughts) settle. The more you do it the better you'll get. Eventually, you'll be able to sit for your allotted time without much thought interruption. Meditation will help build an inner calmness that you never thought was possible, not to mention help increase focus and mental clarity.
Lastly, chiropractic treatment is a great way to reduce anxiety, get a better night of sleep, not to mention get the drug-free pain relief you need -- without prescription drug intervention, which is hugely important during our current opioid epidemic.

We know it's Fall season and the weather is getting a little more chill. Seasons change and we tend to hibernate, or at the very least hunker down a little more, eating comfort food, and maybe binge-watching a few too many meaningless TV shows.
During the Fall season, there are a few rampant bad habits that Barton Chiropractic Clinic would like to raise awareness about. If you can avoid these bad fall habits, you'll likely have a more productive season and feel healthier through it all.
1.) Ditch PSL Lattes
We know that pumpkin spice is life during the Fall season, so maybe it's a good idea to have one huge PSL latte at the beginning of fall, then pretty much write them off. Drinking sugary coffees in the morning loaded with high-fructose corn syrup is a horrible way to start the day. Cut out all processed sugars this Fall season for a boosted immune system and other health benefits.
2.) Have Active Recovery Days
Instead of sitting in front of the TV with a big bowl of mac and cheese every weekend, make it a point to get outdoors, whether you go on a nature hike or a simple neighborhood stroll. Take a yoga class, meditate, and get a full body massage. Find creative ways to be productive while giving your body the space it needs to recharge itself.
We know Fall season means winter (and the end of the year) are right around the corner. Many of us attempt to force a ton of things into the last quarter of our year, grasping for straws as a way to close out the year productively.
Instead, try to set one simple work goal that will carry you through the year and work diligently at that. When the new year starts, create a new simple goal that will carry you through the next quarter.
As Fall season commences, it's natural that old aches and pains might start to show up. Give us a call at Barton Chiropractic Clinic today to learn more about how our treatments can get the best out of you.
As of today, September 18th, the chiropractic profession turns 125 years old.
Back in 1895 D.D. Palmer performed the very first chiropractic adjustment for Harvey Lillard. Up until that point Palmer had specialized in alternative treatments and would eventually perfect The Palmer Method, which a majority of chiropractors incorporate into their practices to this day.
Palmer would start Palmer College of Chiropractic two years later in 1897, which also is still in operation today.
This means that chiropractic treatment has been serving patients who seek drug-free solutions to a variety of health conditions and maladies for one and a quarter-century. At Barton Chiropractic Clinic we're so very proud to be a part of such a rich history of service.
And chiropractic treatment is only going to be more relevant and necessary in today's opioid epidemic. We have a ton of drug-free options that will have you feeling happy and healthy on a daily basis, not to mention help you deal with any injuries and work out any kinks that show up along the way.
