Chiropractor Des Moines IA

Our office offers a variety of services that set us apart from other offices that offer chiropractic care in Des Moines IA, such as:

The time we spend with patients. Rarely in healthcare will you find providers who spend such lengthy amounts of time with each patient. We use this time to thoroughly treat conditions rather than see patients on an 'assembly line' format.

The array of services we offer. Soft tissue techniques, whether it's myofascial release, deep-tissue work, trigger point therapy, or any of today's most popular sports medicine approaches, you'll find them all seamlessly integrated here. We offer these in-conjunction with progressive chiropractic care to get patients better, faster, and for longer.

Integration. Your doctor trusts our clinic. One would be hard-pressed to find another chiropractic clinic that receives as many referrals from other healthcare providers as ours. Doctors know we treat on short-term timelines, strive for high-level results, and release patients when they've overcome their condition. We're entrusted by dozens of physicians around Des Moines to care for the pain-related complaints of their patients.

We Look Forward To Hearing From You!

In our office you'll receive state-of-the-art care designed to integrate with your medical doctors as a team-based approach. No referral necessary. New patients can schedule directly with our font desk, with same-day or next-day appointments available. Our chiropractic team at KC CORE in Des Moines looks forward to your visit!

Why Des Moines?

From the people (who are Iowa nice!), to agricultural roots, and what it means to embrace family, there are few places as great to live. The wax and wane of each season and what it brings to the state is something special. Spring embraces the rejuvenation of golf courses, bike paths, and 'grilling season' with family & friends. RAGBRAI and the Iowa State Fair are summer events that are unmatched elsewhere. Autumn is Iowa's best season with fall color, harvest activity defining the landscape, football season in the air, and sportsmen pursuing Iowa's trophy game. And while winters can be long, it's hard to beat living in a place with a white Christmas!

Over the past 10 years, Des Moines has seen a resurgence of business, culture, and population. Local restaurants and breweries have emerged and revitalized the downtown core. Major publications continue to award the city as the best place for young professionals, best place to make a living, and best place to raise a family. All of these factors contribute to why this state is such a great place to call home.

Common Chiropractic Misconceptions

Generally speaking, chiropractic care is a widely accepted profession in the Des Moines area. The most common misconception we hear is, "Once you start, you'll never stop!" or "They keep you coming back over and over."

Neither of these is true here. In our clinic, you'll never be subjected to sales tactics or endless care plans. We specialize in short-term care with functional improvements focused around pain control. Most of our treatment plans are concluded in less than 2-3 weeks.

We put emphasis on empowering the patient to overcome their condition by making the necessary correction, then dismissing them from care. One of the patient types we treat often is someone who has seen another chiropractor 3x per week for a year with little-to-no result.

We look forward to hearing you. Please call KC CORE in Des Moines today for more information on how we can help.
