All you need to know about the Zerona laser

Family & Sport Chiropractic is now offering Zerona laser treatments.

The team at Family and Sport Chiropractic is always working hard to make sure we’re able to offer our clients the latest and greatest services in care. Our priority is making sure our customers feel their best, look their best, and are living their best lives. So today we’re bringing you the best new technique in body contouring, the Zerona laser!

Family and Sport Chiropractic is excited to now offer our clients Zerona laser treatment, the most effective and effortless body contouring procedure in the health and beauty industry today. Zerona uses cold laser technology to remove excess fat and efficiently sculpt the body without any surgery.

It’s completely safe and the most effective body-slimming treatment available today.



Cold laser technology has the remarkable ability to stimulate the body’s fat cells, subsequently releasing the cellular contents of those cells without disrupting other cells or capillaries. After the fat content has been emulsified, it is eventually absorbed by the lymphatic system, drastically shrinking the size of your fat cells. (It’s important to note that this does not harm your fat cell any way). This effectively sculpts the natural contours of the body. Simply through low-level stimulation, these lasers can remove over three inches from the waist, hips, and thighs!

Ultimately, Zerona laser treatment is the first FDA-approved procedure of its kind to offer a non-invasive alternative to surgical operations such as liposuction.

That means no negative side effects, no discomfort, and an easy, effortless recovery period. Plus, no anesthesia or other pain medications are required for the Zerona treatment.

During treatment you are feel free to relax, check your emails, and even make phone calls! Your technician will set up the laser so it’s directed at the area you’re targeting and you’ll spend twenty minutes on the front of your body, and then twenty minutes on the back. The entire procedure takes less than an hour. After treatment, you can go right back to business as usual! It is typically recommended to schedule at least 6 sessions, within 72 hours of each other, to begin with.

This procedure is ideal for people who have established a healthy diet and fitness routine and are looking for an extra boost or have specific pockets of fat they’d like to work a little further on. You can expect to see significant improvements after about four sessions, and by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, the results of Zerona will be long-lasting.

The Importance of a Healthy Spine

The Importance of Maintaining a Healthy Spine

Often times when we think of feeling well, we don’t consider our spine, or how many of our body’s functions are directly related to this amazing structure.


What does your spine do?

Support your body’s weight
Controls movement and flexibility
Protects all your body’s structures
Enables sensory perception, thought and motion
Supports life functions of your organs



From the time we are born, our bodies have already experienced great trauma to the head, neck and spine. The many falls, accidents and strenuous movements we experience every day adds to the stress we put on our bodies, and let’s be honest- most of us do not have perfect posture. The hours spent slouching at a desk and all the heavy lifting takes a toll on the strength and stability of the spine.

All of this leads to our spine being out of alignment, thus putting undue stress on our muscles and nerves- all of which are connected to every single organ in our body. Regular chiropractic adjustments and massage not only get your spine to align properly, they take pressure off your nerves and muscles, which in turn relieves chronic pain.

For many people, feeling pain leads to taking some form of medication, usually painkillers, and hoping for the best. There is no such thing as an aspirin deficiency in our bodies, and pain associated with the spine is not normal and can lead to a variety of serious issues. Our bodies are structured to hold our weight, carry weight, and move freely. The only thing standing in the way is a healthy spine, muscles and nerves.

FACT: Americans consume around 80% of the world’s pharmaceuticals, and most of these are opioids.

FACT: Painkillers are not a CURE for pain.

Here at Family and Sport Chiropractic, we want you to feel better, and be a part of NATURAL healing and NATURAL body care. It is important to us to deliver not only pain and illness management, but for our patients to continue to feel better throughout their lifetime.

You only have one spine- Let us help you keep yours healthy!
