The Value of West Des Moines Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you define that? Do you embody it? What are healthy living behaviors? Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is all about healthy living. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! West Des Moines chiropractic patients can expect their West Des Moines chiropractor to be a guide to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only help them cope with current spine pain issues but also avent future bouts of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best avoided.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Non-smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those make sense, don’t they? A new study proved that men who abided by more of these healthy choices had lower risk of long duration low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Eating fruit and vegetables is an additional advantageous healthy behavior. This in addition to the other behaviors appeared to decrease the risk of developing long term troubling low back pain in women and even potentially improve the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Participating in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program improves the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Using a lumbar support orthosis increases postural control when standing on unstable ground.  This may be notably welcomed by34 patients with non-specific low back pain as they are predisposed to be more unsteady. (4) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa works with our West Des Moines back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues leads to more healthy behaviors. When patients are able to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were less than if they went to their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access results in a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief found that their knowledge of the doctor’s treatment, social network recommendations, how close they were to the doctor’s office, and doctor’s qualifications influenced their choice.
