"I visited Dr. Wims in the West Des Moines office to help with back and shoulder issues.  She took the time to listen to my updates every visit and address any changes in my conditions.  Always made sure I was comfortable with the treatments she was giving.  The front office staff was always helpful and courteous as well.  I am grateful for their services and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for PT." - Brian

Client Success Story

A woman in her fifties came to Core with a spinal disc injury that had happened eight months before. She had pain when bending forward and returning to an upright position. After weeks of appointments with another physical therapist and chiropractor that still left her with symptoms, she was recommended by her physician to consult with an orthopedic surgeon. However, she wanted to avoid surgery and treat the pain with a more conservative method, if possible. 

After her first few treatment sessions with Connor, one of our Core PT's, that focused on spinal range of motion activities, visceral mobilization, and lumbosacral mechanics and correction, her pain was reduced. By the second week, she had total pain resolution and was discharged not long after, allowing her to return to weightlifting and other active recreational activities.
