Help for West Des Moines Back Pain Connected to Poor Posture at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa

Good posture can be successfully acquired only when the entire mechanism of the body is under perfect control. - Joseph Pilates

Of course we were often cautioned to stand up straight! Posture matters. West Des Moines back pain patients are quite familiar with this. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa makes sure that they do! Poor posture and back pain often go together. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa treats them together. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa and our West Des Moines chiropractic patients experience improvement in one often is followed by improvement in the other.


Many factors affect how posture and West Des Moines back pain are linked. The body mechanism truly is at work as Pilates says. Researchers say that poor posture is documented to alter joint position and cause pain, like back pain. Musculoskeletal back pain is bettered when postural issues are fixed. (1) Recent research says that even patients with plantar heel pain experience more low back pain and higher rates of low back pain disability because of decreased foot and ankle function. (2) When one leg is shorter than the other, hip pain is recorded to occur on the longer leg side. Sciatica (leg pain) and disc protrusion do , too. (3,4,5) Leg length inequality alters posture and may initiate back pain. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa addresses this myriad of issues with chiropractic care options like spinal manipulation, exercise and sometimes orthotic lifts for our West Des Moines chiropractic patients.


A foundation of the West Des Moines chiropractic treatment plan for patients with West Des Moines back pain and postural issues is frequently manual therapy spinal manipulation (after a thorough examination, of course!). Executive Chiropractic of Iowa picks this option as spinal research presents that it is effective accompanied by posture correction. Manual therapy treatment furthers posture improvement and low pain reduction more notably than low back massage. (6) Three treatments of manipulation improved posture control and reduced pain in a female patient with low back pain and uneven balance. (7) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa offers posture-correcting, pain-reducing West Des Moines chiropractic care.
