Chiropractor Council Bluffs IA

Mouw Family Chiropractic

Welcome to Mouw Family Chiropractic located in Council Bluffs, IA. Chiropractic is one of the most amazing healthcare professions, but very few people understand what it's all about. This article is here to help you gain a basic understanding of how our Council Bluffs Chiropractors can help you and your family.

Mouw Family Chiropractic is truly about our family serving yours. We believe in finding the root of the problem and fixing it with corrective care, not just using a band-aid approach.

Chiropractic care is the practice of using spinal alignment to alleviate a wide variety of physical ailments, including muscle strain, neck pain, chronic back pain, and more. This is accomplished by adjusting the position of the spinal column to its proper shape, providing a non-invasive solution for pain relief.



After taking your health history into account, your chiropractor will perform a physical examination. Your chiropractor may feel your spine, joints, and examine your range of motion.



A chiropractic exam will be thorough and may include X-rays, orthopedic tests, and neurological tests.


Spinal Exam

To determine what parts of your spine would require chiropractic treatment, your chiropractor will likely use a palpation technique to find what areas of your spine's mobility are restricted.



Many healthcare providers employ the use of x-rays for diagnostic purposes, including chiropractors. They are useful in helping identify the source of a problem, its potential severity, and potentially guiding the course of treatment.

Exceed Your Health Goals

We envision Council Bluffs and the surrounding communities as a place in which people have become empowered and regained control of their health; a community where drugs and surgery are a last resort and not a first choice; a community where longevity and a better quality of life go hand-in-hand; a community where every child has an opportunity to experience the joys of life without disease or dysfunction; a community where every individual is living clear and connected. By utilizing state-of-the-art technology and the most up to date research in healthcare today, we will bring this vision to life.

Combined, our chiropractors have over 60 years of experience in helping individuals and whole families meet and exceed their health goals. Our office was established in Council Bluffs in 2005 and we focus on using a “whole person approach." This approach to wellness means looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that would optimize the conditions for normal function.

Common conditions

Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back or neck pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, upper back and mid back pain, whiplash, neuropathy, sciatica, chronic pain, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury, car accident or muscle strain, and much more.

Last but not least, we treat infants and children. Many babies have nursed for the first time in their lives in our office, slept through the night, or enjoyed the cessation of bedwetting because they have musculoskeletal issues that have not been addressed leading to dysfunction. Fussy babies, ADD/ADHD children, and those hurt in accidents are all familiar to us - with most experiencing noteworthy decreases in their troubles as a side effect of gentle and effective chiropractic care

Common misconceptions

Chiropractic doctors go through a minimum of four years of schooling at a chiropractic college, generally preceded by an undergraduate degree in the basic sciences or several years of experience in a prior relevant health care field.

Students of chiropractic care must spend a minimum of at least 4,200 hours with their teacher, and a minimum of 1,000 hours of fully supervised clinical training with an instructor as they learn the appropriate diagnosis and treatment techniques to help heal your body and restore it to its natural, fully functioning state.
