Nutrition as a factor in the care of spinal pain conditions is not novel. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa knows that. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa follows reports about nutrition in the spine literature. Dr. Cox, developer of Cox Technic flexion distraction, discussed it back in 1993 (and even earlier). (1) A French researcher told of the benefits of vitamin B back in 1968. (2) Another researcher in 1985 discussed the connection between spinal canal size (as a small canal size doesn’t permit much room for a disc herniation, inclining a person to higher risk of low back pain) and infant malnutrition. (3) The renowned spine researcher, Alf Nachemson, MD, discussed that nutrition of the intervertebral disc is improved by introducing motion to the spine. (4) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa’s treatment of the spine includes just that, motion. Cox Technic, the West Des Moines chiropractic treatment method Executive Chiropractic of Iowa uses, brings motion to the spine, segment by segment. Nutrition renders a positive change in a person’s health status. Nutrition makes a positive difference in the West Des Moines health of the spine. Nutrition may influence positively the course of West Des Moines back pain relief and prevention.


A newly published medical research report discusses the advantage of multivitamin nutrition for taking care of disc herniation with radiculopathy (aka a pinched nerve of the spine causing extremity pain), a condition Executive Chiropractic of Iowa welcomes into its West Des Moines chiropractic practice! A randomized trial of 100 patients with this condition investigated how well treatment alone and how well treatment plus a multivitamin nutrition supplement (with vitamins like B6, B12 and others) changed their pain, disability and requirement for NSAID drugs. They found that adding a multivitamin enhanced the treatment outcomes. (5) Adding a nutritional element to the treatment seems simple, but it does prove to be quite effective for West Des Moines chiropractic patients with back pain, neck pain, and radiculopathy.
