Laser Therapy

“Healing your Pain…..Changing your life

Class IV Laser Therapy is a non-surgical, drug free, pain free treatment option for advanced pain relief and enhanced tissue healing.  Laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) that interact with tissues at a cellular level to create therapeutic effects.  During each painless treatment laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area.  This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain.  As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved. 

Our Clinic has been offering K-Laser Class IV Laser Therapy for Advance Pain Relief and Enhanced Tissue Healing to our patients since 2011 and have experienced phenomenal healing results!  Every condition that we have treated has a success story.

Corrective Exercises

At Langel Chiropractic Clinic, P.C., we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.

Lifestyle Advice

Many of our patients come to see Dr. Langel to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While Dr. Langel will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.

Nutritional Counseling

What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our West Des Moines chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
