We strive to provide you with objective information that allows you to make the best decision for you and your situation. We do not intend to speak on behalf of other healthcare providers but wish to help you make an educated decision.

There are many treatment options provided by medical providers and other healthcare practitioners in the Des Moines area. Most doctors look to manage symptoms (secondary conditions) and provide temporary relief. Often they are able to create good outcomes. Courses of treatment (prescribed by other doctors) begin with medication or homeopathic remedies, which can reduce the sensitivity of pain receptors or for a period of time. If medications are not successful, physical therapy may be suggested to strengthen muscular weakness, or temporarily reduce spasms and increase mobility. Following that, injections to calm the site of pain may be introduced. When those fail to work, more invasive procedures, like surgery, are also options.

Each of the above treatments have different goals, and may be necessary at the appropriate time and place.

Our goal at Keystone Chiropractic is to help you restore neurological function and the structural integrity of your spine and nervous system. We do this by using gentle, science-based techniques to provide a lasting FIX to your health challenge rather than a temporary patch.


We don’t have the solution to every health problem. We guarantee that if we believe you are not in the right place to get the care you need, we will find you the best health care professional to help you.

We know you only want to work with the best, and Drs. Ries are experts in NeuroStructural Correction. However, we also recognize there is always a person behind the problem. We guarantee to always treat you like a human being, not the next number on an assembly line.
