If West Des Moines walking is a problem, West Des Moines chiropractic care may well get you walking better.  

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 points out that spinal manipulation in combination with individualized exercise improves the walking ability in back pain patients 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) Further, spinal manipulation for patients with lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) also benefits the relief of leg and back pain, disability, range of motion and patient satisfaction. (3) The West Des Moines chiropractic care at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa uses one or all these tactics as needed to get you the West Des Moines back pain relief you want and keep you walking without your giving it a second thought.
