Assisting West Des Moines back pain patients get relief is what Executive Chiropractic of Iowa does.  Does such confidence and experience allow for better outcomes for West Des Moines chiropractic patients? Quite possibly reports a new study. When a musculoskeletal patient anticipates a positive outcome from the care he or she is getting, the odds of a positive outcome are raised. What about the inclination for a type of treatment? Does the patient’s or healthcare provider’s inclination  for treatment type impact the outcome? The provider’s does; the patient’s doesn’t as much. Intriguing! The odds of living up to a back pain patient’s expectations for back pain relief rose by 69.3 times when that back pain patient participated in care from a healthcare provider team which strongly preferred the care recommended to the patient. The patient’s preference for a back pain relief intervention method didn’t influence the odds as much (just 29.7 times). It appears that the provider’s influence and preference is more influential than the patient’s preference. (1) So good!

Including non-surgical distraction therapy to the treatment of lumbar disc herniation aids the back pain relief. Patients suffering with back pain for at least 8 weeks obtained electrotherapy, massage and stabilization exercises. The patients improved. Their pain improved, their function restored and their disc herniation thickness dropped. But those patients who also underwent the distraction therapy found more improvement. At the end of their care, clinical and radiological findings were better. The disc herniation reduction was more evident in the patients with distraction therapy added to the treatment plan. (2) That is not surprising at all! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa sees it all the time!
