West Des Moines Exercise May Be Inspired by Social Interaction & Listening Docs

What inspires you to exercise? Everybody is different. Pain relief, social interaction, a listening, attentive healthcare provider who’s encouraging you to exercise, feeling like you are heard and understood all help. There’s something for everyone! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa works to inspire our West Des Moines back pain patients to exercise to keep their back pain in check.


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.


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 disc herniation with sciatica patients 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!
