What's Your Exercise "Thing" That You'll Do?

What’s your exercise “thing”? Do like to hear “Do this.” or “Which do you prefer?” We all like choices! We all have preferences. Your West Des Moines chiropractor is up for offering you options when it involves exercise.  Executive Chiropractic of Iowa just hopes you exercise. You choose how! When you choose, the outcomes are better in terms of satisfaction and pain relief. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa's chiropractic care is all about you and your West Des Moines back pain relief.


Adding spinal manipulation and/or supervised rehabilitation exercise to home exercise alone for older adults suffering with chronic low back pain improves their satisfaction with care. (1) Could this result from having a professional check on you and your healing periodically? If you are performing home exercise all by yourself, you do not get the benefit of someone being concerned about you, checking on your progress objectively, letting you know you are healing. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is here for our West Des Moines chronic low back pain patients with spinal manipulation, exercise supervision and objective reassurance. Chronic low back pain is tough to deal with. It often limits what you can do. It tends to also diminish your quality and enjoyment of life.


Executive Chiropractic of Iowa wishes our West Des Moines back pain patients to do what they want and enjoy what they do. Exercise is essential. Doing a type of exercise that a back pain patient enjoys raises the possibility that he or she will exercise. What do you like to do? A recent study of older adults – 65 to 85 years – compared the usefulness of Pilates exercise to aerobic exercise on a treadmill for chronic low back pain. The study suggests that either will decrease pain and increase balance and function and that Pilates may be more useful since its exercises are directed at the trunk stabilization muscles. Either way, having a patient choose an exercise program is the goal to enhance patient care satisfaction, pain reduction and quality of life. (2)
