Executive Chiropractic of Iowa Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain isn’t picky. Back pain may pick any of us at any time whether we’re stay-at-home people or out-in-the-world workers, active military folks or veterans. The reputation of chiropractic for helping back pain sufferers continues to grow in the civilian and military/veteran care systems. The more recent interest has been how much chiropractic care is optimal for back pain relief. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa keeps track of this research since military/veteran back pain resembles our civilian West Des Moines back pain!


80% of us will experience back pain at some point in our lives, in our youth, middle years, or elder age. 264 million work days were documented to be lost in one year because of back pain. (1) West Des Moines chiropractic care is made to help all ages! Somewhere between 25 and 33% of older folks in fact experience low back pain each year. Low back pain for older adults is reported to be debilitating as it often limits their independence and multiplies their doctor visits. A study that combined primary care with chiropractic care for their back pain brought about modest improvements in their disability and back pain and higher patient satisfaction and perceived improvement over just primary care. (2) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa sees these same outcomes for our West Des Moines back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain who also have other medical issues who used only chiropractic spinal manipulation for their back pain had reduced overall costs of care, briefer occurrences of back pain, and decreased costs of care per back pain episode. (3) Back pain relief in a briefer time at less expense…a threefold bonus for West Des Moines back pain sufferers!


Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans struggle with back pain and experience relief with chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic is well-integrated into the VA system for veterans with low back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions. A newly proposed study of chiropractic care in Veterans Affairs healthcare facilities for low back pain seeks to see if low dose (one to 5 visits) or higher dose (eight to twelve visits) chiropractic care for 10 weeks is most beneficial for chronic low back pain relief. (4) (The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management documented in a study of 1000 back pain patients that 12 visits and 29 days were the mean number of visits and days to achieve maximum improvement for such patients. (5)) A related finding was made when chiropractic care was inserted into usual medical care for active-duty military personnel who had low back pain. Moderate short-term improvement in back pain intensity and disability was documented. Multidisciplinary care of back pain that involves chiropractic is suggested to be beneficial. (6) The aim of West Des Moines chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is prepared to provide that!
