“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa hears you! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa knows your back
hurts. Many West Des Moines chiropractic patients come for just that reason:
West Des Moines back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of West Des Moines spinal stenosis or a West Des Moines disc
herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or extends
down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible via our joint
effort: West Des Moines chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and
West Des Moines SPINAL STENOSIS AND LEG PAIN
Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain show
decreased cross sectional area of the spinal extensor muscles and fat
infiltration on MRI. What does that mean? There is a
a loss of muscle power in the low back when pain is present.
(1) One of the causes of low back pain is lumbar hyperlordosis (sway back). A
type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo revealed improvement
in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa checks for
such causes and has just the exercise to address the issue.
West Des Moines NECK PAIN
Neck pain patients experience less neck pain and improved
dysfunction neck posture and range of motion with thoracic spine manipulation.
The relief lasts up to 6 months post-treatment.
(3) This goes to show that spinal manipulation is an important
component in West Des Moines pain relief treatment plans.

West Des Moines BACK PAIN
Chronic low back pain patients with weak abs were cared for
with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”). This
produces a spine-stabilizing effect by tightening
the muscles increasing intraabdominal pressure and increasing the efficiency of these muscles to
make them better spine stabilizers. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered
as an option for patients with weak abs and intractable low back pain who have failed conservative management. (4)
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa can offer you some specific
exercises that will do the trick before resorting to a surgery!
INTERMITTENT CLAUDICATION (cramp-like pain in the legs upon
exercise like walking)
Peripheral artery disease patients with intermittent
claudication were cared for with a home-based exercise program a
supervised exercise program and usual-care control. Both exercise programs had
patients exercise with a step activity monitor for 12 weeks. The patients stuck with these programs which both proved useful
in improving claudication measures comparable to a standard
supervised exercise program. Such exercise appears more successful
in increasing daily activity in the
community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Executive Chiropractic of Iowa
is prepared to be your community!
West Des Moines NON-SPECIFIC
LOW BACK PAIN
Persistent non-specific low back pain drives some
West Des Moines back pain sufferers mad…with good reason! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa
gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a
good option to try to reduce back pain and ease disability. (7)
West Des Moines POST-SURGICAL BACK PAIN
Even after back surgery, exercise eases pain. Aerobic
exercise beginning one month after first time
single-level lumbar microdiscectomy brought about a more marked
functional improvement than home exercise. (8) Whatever it takes to help reduce
back pain is the important factor. Listen in to a PODCAST that shares how Cox Technic helps relieve post-surgical back pain. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa will help you explore
