West Des Moines WALKING
The ability to walk is valuable
for West Des Moines living. How many times a
day do you think about walking? How many times are you grateful
for the ability to put one foot in front of the other?
Most West Des Moines folks don’t give walking a second thought
until we or a West Des Moines loved one can’t do it or isn’t able do it as effortlessly as we did at one time. Chronic non-specific low back pain
is apt to disrupt
West Des Moines back pain patients’ motor control while walking. It is thought that the
erector spinae are working overtime
in these patients, leading to a stiff lumbar-pelvic region
and more difficult time walking. (1)
A recent report shows that spinal manipulation in combination with
individualized exercise improves the walking ability in back
like those Executive Chiropractic of Iowa sees every day who are dealing
with lumbar spinal stenosis
better than medical care (medications/epidural
steroid injections) and/or group exercise in the short term. (2)
spinal manipulation for patients with lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) also benefits
the relief of leg and back pain, disability, range of motion and patient
The West Des Moines chiropractic care
at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa uses
one or all these approaches as needed to get
you the West Des Moines back pain relief you want and keep
you walking without a doubt.

Exercise Just a Little Each Week; It Helps!

not! A new report says
that just 60 minutes of progressive exercise once a week makes
a difference. Such exercise improves overall physical
health and lowers the occurrence
of cervical disability and low back pain in patients with musculoskeletal pain.

you might fill those 60 minutes with useful,
do-able exercises just for you, our West Des Moines chiropractic patient!
