to inspire our West Des Moines back pain patients to exercise to
keep their back pain in check.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one frustrating
back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it curbs
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A study
contrasted three tactics: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and personalized exercise.
All the participants stated that exercise improved
their pain levels and function but that these effects were temporary.
They had to keep exercising. The most common issues
for not carrying on with these activities were other
health problems and transportation. The medical care approach had slight
to no effect. The community group exercise offered social
support and participants continued these classes after the
study. These back pain patients stated that the doctor’s ability to
relate to them and listen to their concerns were so
important. (1) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa wants to listen, inspire, and see
our West Des Moines back pain patients get West Des Moines back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
A recent study found that six
weeks of twice-a-week (better than one
time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy brought
about significant short-term improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It harkens back to the classic paper by Weber who pointed
out that 90% of patients with a disc herniation and sciatic leg pain responded to active,
energetic, non-operative care. (3) That is what
it’s all about at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your West Des Moines

Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is ready and willing to do just that to bring
relief to our West Des Moines back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
