Charity Event for the ARL

Charity Event for the Animal Rescue League

Central Health Chiropractic gives back

Local Des Moines Chiropractor Charity Event

Its that time of year to announce our first annual charity event. This year we will be supporting animals and the Animal Rescue League. On Friday, March 27th all proceeds collected from chiropractic spinal adjustments will be donated to the Animal Rescue League. Our goal is to raise at least $1,000.

This event will be for both NEW and EXISTING patients.

This is a great opportunity to align your spine and help animals at the same time.

Event Details

There will be all sorts of animal related giveaways and items ready for everyone who stops in this day. There will also be a raffle giving away various donated items from local businesses around the area. It is our goal to have enough raffle items that EVERY PATIENT will win something thus negating the cost of the adjustment for the patient.  We will continually update this page below to show all the items donated from local businesses. These will be the prizes that patients will win.

We would also like to thank each business for supporting the ARL and this event.

Disc herniation

Disc herniation treatment. Dr. Jake visits Iowa Ortho to learn surgical options

On Thursday, December 12th, Dr. Jake had the opportunity to visit and shadow the spinal surgeons at Iowa Ortho on the Mercy Hospital Campus to learn more about disc herniation treatment options. Prognosis and outcomes for patients improve greatly when there is co-management and an understanding among all local doctors of all options available. Learning from experts in the field such as Dr. Harbach and Kraig Holtorf greatly increased my understanding of surgical and medical options for severe spinal conditions. These guys are some of the best at what they do and I highly recommend them. Recently, there has been a shift in surgical methodology to a more conservative outlook. It was made very apparent to me that surgery was always a final option after all conservative methods have been attempted.

This visit is just another way we go the extra mile for our practice members here at Central Health. To truly be great at your craft, you must fully understand the entire field. Too often people in the medical field see conditions only through the scope of their specialty. In order to provide the best care possible, a full understanding of all treatment options is a must. I am a firm believer in co-management with the medical field when discussing disc herniation treatment options. These doctors reinforced my believe and trust in our medical community. Thank you to Dr. Harbach, Holtorf and their staff for hosting!

For more information, click the link below. Doctor Jake has spent years studying these injuries and is a leader in conservative management for disc injuries. These problems have the potential to last months to years if not taken care of correctly. If you suspect you might have a disc injury, don’t hesitate to see your doctor.  It is much easier to correct disc injuries if they are caught early.
