Chiro Plus
I was in Des Moines for several days and had been experiencing pain and tightness in my left shoulder and lower back. I’d been sitting and driving a lot in the past few weeks. I saw the sign for Chiro Plus and the $50.00 for 60 minute massage and thought it would do me a world of good. I was right. The massage therapist, Lori, listened to my concerns, made certain the pressure was appropriate and most important made me feel at ease throughout the massage. Little did she know that I too am a massage therapist in Missouri. I must say that this is one of the best massage’s I have ever received. Thanks Lori, you are amazing!

Pulley Chiropractic Health Center
Dr. Pulley is awesome! Will work with anyone regardless of insurance. Visits are always quick and if you happen to miss an appointment he can always work with you to get you in immediately! I will never use another chiropractor! Also, Dr. pulley isn't arrogant like many chiropractors out there and will refer to a healthcare specialist if necessary! Definitely worth the treatment!

Hammans Chiropractic Clinic
Dr. Hammans helped me with a back problem a couple years ago and I've been going every month since. I feel great after every visit and Dr. Hammans is very knowledgeable and friendly. Much better than any other Chiropractor I or my wife have ever been to.
Tips & Advices
Scoliosis is a disorder where the spine curves sideways. Most people develop the condition during the growth spurt before puberty. The cause of scoliosis is unknown and most cases are mild, but the rare severe instances can disable a person.
Orthopedic surgeons attend four years of medical school, then four to five years of orthopedic residency in a hospital. They must also be licensed and certified in orthopedic surgery by the state in which they practice.
The terms "orthopedic doctor" and "orthopedic surgeon" refer to the same profession. Related specialties include podiatrist, a doctor who works with the bones, tendons and ligaments in the feet, and a sports medicine physician, a doctor specially trained to treat athletes.
The cost of a visit to an orthopedic surgeon depends on the type of tests ordered and treatment given. For example, an MRI costs $500-$1,300. An initial consultation costs $100- $500, while anesthesia for a procedure generally ranges from $2,000-$4,000. Overall, an orthopedic surgery can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000.
During a consultation or first appointment with an orthopedic surgeon, the practitioner will ask the patient a variety of questions to understand the situation. The surgeon might ask about the patient's pain levels, medical history, and any prior injuries. Then, the surgeon will administer a physical exam and possibly schedule tests to better understand the problem. Possible tests include a stress test, x-ray, or MRI.
