No matter what kind of surgery you get, there will be a risk of something going wrong. You’re willing to take that risk because you believe it’s worth the opportunity to fix a serious issue that’s been causing you a lot of pain and health issues.

Complications from back surgery are especially worrisome because the spinal cord is such an important part of your body’s functionality.

If you’re having ongoing pain after undergoing spinal surgery, you could be experiencing some of the common complications from back surgery.

In this blog, we’ll discuss some of the possible complications you could be dealing with.

3 Complications From Back Surgery

The origin of issues with the back and spinal cord can be difficult to pinpoint without the help of a doctor, but here are three common back surgery complications you could be experiencing.

1. Infection

As with any surgery, there is always the risk of infection because you are working with open wounds and bacteria can easily get into your bloodstream. To prevent infections, antibiotics are often prescribed before you undergo surgery. However, infections can still occur in a small number of back surgeries.

If the incision wound looks abnormal and does not seem to be healing, but rather getting worse, you may have an infection. If it’s only an external infection, this can be easily treated with antibiotics.

If you experience symptoms like fever, chills, and increasing back pain, you may have a more severe infection. If the infection spreads into your spinal cord, this is much more dangerous and may require an operation to drain the fluids. Call a doctor immediately if you believe you have an infection.

2. Dural Tear

There is a sac of membrane tissue that covers the spinal cord called dura mater. If surgery is being performed on the spine, it is quite common for dural tears to occur. Usually, the surgeon will notice the tear during surgery and fix the issue right away. But sometimes, these tears can go unnoticed, leading to complications later on.

If you have a dural tear, fluid will leak from the membrane sac and cause spinal headaches and potentially lead to infection. Typically, the leaking fluid will seal the tear on its own. If it doesn’t, you’ll need to go back in for another operation to have it re-sealed.

3. Nerve Injury

When performing surgery on the spine, the biggest complication that can occur is damaging the nerves. The nerves in the spine are so important to our body’s functionality, which is why nerve damage can lead to paralysis.

Nerve damage is common in back surgeries and can occur from bruising or accidental scalpel cuts.

If you’re experiencing numbness, tingling, difficulty walking, or neuropathic pain, these are some of the signs you’ve experienced nerve damage from your surgery. Nerves can and usually will repair itself, but it may take a long time. If the nerve does not repair itself, then the nerve damage may be permanent.

For More Information

If you are having ongoing issues after getting back surgery, call your doctor to find out exactly what it is. Spinal issues are complicated and can be dangerous and harmful if not treated right away.

carpal-tunnel-therapy-1200x800.jpeg

April 10, 2018 Chiropractic0

Carpal tunnel syndrome currently affects approximately 2.7 percent of the U.S. population.

If you’re part of this group, your doctor may have been told that you’ll eventually need surgery or dangerous prescription drugs to eliminate your symptoms. There are other options, though.

If you’re not interested in having surgery, consider trying one of the alternative carpal tunnel therapy options listed below.

What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome starts when the carpal tunnel — the opening below the base of the wrist that holds the median nerve — becomes inflamed.

This inflammation presses on the median nerve. This pressure causes pain, tingling, and numbness in the hand and/or wrist.

Some other symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include:

  • Difficulty moving the hands or arms
  • Muscle weakness and shaking
  • Loss of awareness of your hand’s position in space (proprioception)

You may also notice that these symptoms get worse when you’re using your hands a lot (e.g., when you’re driving, typing, or reading a book).

Alternative Carpal Tunnel Therapy Options

These non-surgical alternatives are a great place to start if you want to relieve your carpal tunnel symptoms.

Wrist Splints

Wrist splints help stabilize your wrist to avoid overextending or flexing it. They also help you avoid too much repetitive use, bending, or pressure.

Most people only wear splints at night to avoid accidentally aggravating the median nerve while they sleep. You can also wear it during the day, too, if you find your hands and wrists aching a lot.

Postural Adjustments

One of the easiest ways to treat carpal tunnel syndrome is to adjust the way you sit while you’re at work. Some adjustments that can have a major impact on your pain include:

  • Raising or lowering your desk
  • Raising your computer screen
  • Sitting up straighter

As soon as you start noticing symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, check your posture to see if it could be aggravating your pain.

Chiropractic Treatment

Surprisingly, if your spine is out of alignment, you’re more likely to experience nerve compression throughout the body.

A chiropractor can help adjust the spine to get things aligned properly and reduce your symptoms, as well as adjust the bones in the wrist and forearm directly to relieve pressure on your median nerve.

Ultrasound Therapy

You can also visit a chiropractor or physical therapist for a therapeutic ultrasound.

This treatment uses high- or low-energy sound waves to penetrate the tissue in the wrist and hands. These sound waves help relax the muscle and reduce inflammation to minimize your symptoms.

Hand and Wrist Exercises

There are lots of hand and wrist exercises you can also do to relieve your pain and improve your range of motion.

Some good exercises to start with include:

  • Clockwise and counter-clockwise wrist circles
  • Spreading the fingers apart (wrap a rubber band around your fingers for extra resistance)
  • Holding a prayer pose to stretch the wrists and forearms

You can do these simple exercises while watching TV or hanging out at home. Just be sure not to overstretch the painful areas — you could end up doing more damage.

March 27, 2018 Back Pain

7 out of 10 Americans take at least one prescription drug ranging from birth control prescriptions to antibiotics. While taking medications to help with problems like back pain may make you feel better at first, they may be harming your body in the long run.

Instead, there are a number of at-home-remedies on how to fix back pain and none of them involve medication. Find out how to ease back pain and rid your body of medications you may not even realize are harming your body.

Back Pain Symptoms

It’s important to know what your symptoms are and what’s causing your back pain to know what remedies will help, and which ones to stay away from. Knowing what’s causing your back pain will narrow the treatments to fix back pain.

Types of Back Pain

Chronic neck and back pain has a number of different types, including herniated discs and sciatica. Luckily, there ways to alleviate the pain without having to make a trip to the medicine cabinet.

Stretching

The easiest way to treat back pain is to begin stretching at home. Simple yoga stretches in the morning and at night will loosen your muscles and relieve pressure in the back. Stretching for as little as 10 minutes or as long as 30 minutes will prevent lower back pain. Start with yoga positions that don’t require you to leave the floor and work your way up.

Make sure to breathe deeply, and talk to your doctor before starting any stretching routines.

A Good Night’s Sleep

Getting a good nights sleep each night will prevent back pain and energize your body and mind.

Make sure your mattress has a firm top, and experimenting with sleeping positions could ease the pain as well. This can include propping a pillow between your legs to help with the natural curve of your spine.

Hot and Cold

Know when to apply a hot pad or a cold pack. Cold packs are commonly used when there is inflammation, while hot pads are used to relax muscles and alleviate pain. Apply a heating pad for 15-20 minutes at a time and a cold pack for 10 minutes at a time.

Herb Relief

Herb relief is a natural remedy that helps your body in the same way an over-the-county drug can. Ginger, chamomile, and arnica are natural herbs used in teas, essential oils, and ointments for the body.

Chiropractic Help

If home remedies aren’t working, it may be time to reach out to a chiropractor. There are many treatments on how to fix back pain that won’t involve medications or surgery.

One type of treatment on how to fix back pain is the DRS Protocol which is a nonsurgical, drug-free treatment that has helped thousands of patients get relief from chronic pain conditions.

The DRS Protocol, offered at the Davis Clinic of Chiropractic in The Villages(R), FL, is an effective treatment for the relief of neck and back pain conditions.

opioid-epidemic-1200x800.jpeg

February 27, 2018 Pain KillersPain Medication

More than 64,0000 people died from an opioid overdose in 2017 in a continued upward trend. The rate has nearly doubled in just 10 years.

What are opioids? What’s fueling this opioid epidemic? Is it happening where I live? Am I at risk?

You probably have a lot of questions.

Let’s explore the answers.

What Are Opioids?

Opioids are a specific class of painkillers. This drug class includes illegal drugs like heroin. But it also includes painkillers that can be obtained legally like:

  • Fentanyl
  • Oxycodone (Oxycotin)
  • Codeine
  • Morphine
  • Hydrocodone (Vicodin)

These drugs interact with the opioid receptors in the brain, causing feelings of relaxation and/or euphoria. This is in addition to their intended purpose of relieving pain.

Are Opioids Inherently Dangerous?

Everyone’s talking about the opioid crisis these days for good reason. When taken as directed, prescribed opioids can be effective at masking symptoms. But they have many side effects like:

  • Constipation
  • Difficulty thinking
  • Shallow breathing
  • Sedation

On top of this, taking them as directed isn’t as easy as pharmaceutical companies would like us to believe. These drugs are highly addictive.

People who were on them temporarily may become dependent. A dependent person “feels” like they need it even after they have healed.

This dependence eventually becomes a full-blown addiction.

What may start as genuine pain relief often leads to drug-seeking. Eventually, people purchase on the black market to feed a growing addiction.

People who start out on prescription opioids may turn to heroin when their prescription runs out to get a similar “high” for less money. Around 60% of opioid deaths are not caused by the prescription opioids themselves.

But they often started with people legitimately seeking pain relief.

What’s Feeding the Crisis?

There’s a lot of blame to throw around. Some people blame the doctors who prescribe them. Others the pharmaceutical companies that develop them. And yet others blame the insurers.

The largest issue is the fact that doctors are prescribing these medications to their patients when there are much safer options to relieve pain.

A patient comes in with lower back pain. Instead of discussing how to actually stop the source of the pain, the patient is sent home with a prescription.

Where Is the Opioid Epidemic?

The opioid epidemic isn’t isolated to prominent cities like New York City, Los Angeles or Chicago. It’s all over. You’ll find “hot spots” in states across the nation like New Mexico, West Virginia, Florida and Maine.

Opioids can be found in both the suburbs and the city. They’re found in rural communities and small towns alike.

For teens, the opioid death rate rose 19% between 2010 and 2015. Preventing the flow of drugs into schools has been a high priority over last few years.

You Can Help

The opioid epidemic is growing. But people like you can make a difference.

If you’re using these medications or seeking pain relief, know that there are better and safer choices.

Explore other pain relief options like lifestyle changes, yoga, exercise, chiropractic care, dietary changes, etc.

February 13, 2018 Back Pain Treatment

Valentine’s Day is a beautiful day of love and affection.

But love doesn’t only need to be expressed toward your partner. Your back needs some special attention, too.

Flowers and chocolates won’t do, but there are other great ways to say “I love you” to your back. Here are 4 ways to treat your back this Valentine’s Day.

1. Get a Massage

A massage is one of the most classic ways to pamper yourself. It’s also a way to keep your back in top shape.

Not only do massages relax you, but they are medically beneficial. Massages are known to decrease stress hormones and promote the production of white blood cells.

There are many massage techniques, from a general Swedish massage to sports massages that target specific areas. Other techniques are more spiritual and incorporate meditative elements. Evaluating your needs and personal outlook will help you choose the right style for you.

Whichever technique you choose to get, know that a trip to the spa for a massage is a fantastic way to treat your back on Valentine’s Day.

2. Go to a Chiropractor

Chiropractic may not hold the same luxurious, pampering connotation that massages have. But depending on the origin of your pain, it can be an even more effective way to treat your back.

While massages focus on your muscles, chiropractic treatment concentrates on your skeletal system.

Sometimes your bones and joints become misaligned. This can cause grinding, pinched nerves, or other problems that result in debilitating pain.

Luckily, a quick trip to a licensed chiropractor can literally snap you back into shape.

Even if you don’t have significant back pain, regular appointments with a chiropractor give you a frequent tune-up and can prevent major injury down the line.

3. Stretch

Imagine a rubber band. It’s stretchy and flexible.

Now imagine that same rubber band after it’s been put in the freezer for a few hours. It’s stiff, brittle, and could easily snap if mishandled.

Muscles aren’t much more than big fleshy rubber bands that help move your body.

When primed, they’re strong and can demonstrate surprising flexibility. But when they’re put to work without being properly prepared, they have limited range of motion and are more prone to injury.

That’s why it’s important to stretch and warm up your muscles. Stretching in the morning and after you’ve been sitting for long periods keep your body limber and healthy.

Want to strengthen your back and your relationship with stretching on Valentine’s Day? Sign you and your partner up for a couples yoga class.

4. Buy a Massage Chair

Wouldn’t it be great to access the relaxing, revitalizing effects of a massage from the comfort of your own home?

If you’re really looking to splurge on your back for this holiday of love, consider buying a massage chair. It won’t quite replicate the expert hands of a therapist, but you have the freedom of treatment any day, any time of day.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to purchase the super expensive chairs you’d find at a mall kiosk. As a cheaper alternative, you can buy a massage chair insert that fits right in your favorite armchair.

With a V-Day purchase of a massage chair, you can love your back year-round.

More Ways to Treat Your Back

Sometimes these options aren’t enough to make your back feel the love.

If you suffer from serious chronic back pain, consider expert treatment through the DRS Protocol(TM).


Back-Pain-and-Depression-1200x800.jpeg

January 18, 2018 Uncategorized

Back pain is a very common issue that affects a whopping 80% of people. Of course, the severity of the pain and injury varies from situation to situation.

But it’s not just the pain some of these individuals have to deal with. For instance, some also have other seemingly unrelated conditions, such as depression.

It makes sense for someone with a debilitating back injury to develop depression at some point in time. However, what we’ll discuss is whether back pain and depression interrelate.

What’s the Science Behind it?

You may find it surprising that back pain doesn’t necessarily have to come before the depression. There’s a study that suggests otherwise – those with depression are 60% more likely to develop low back pain.

It’s not quite clear why the two correlate, but there are a few theories.

The Relationship Between Back Pain and Depression

There were over 61,000 cases of lower back pain in the aforementioned Australian study. Based on the findings, it was determined that lower back pain was due to depression, or at least in part.

The evidence also showed that the deeper the depression of the individual, the more severe their back pain.

Now, medical professionals are still not convinced of the correlation between back pain and depression. This is especially true since the two conditions have differing causes.

For instance, lower back pain can stem from all sorts of conditions that relate to the nerves, muscles, bones, disks, and tendons.

The Typical Causes of Lower Back Pain

There are a number of reasons why someone’s lower back may develop pain. For instance, it may be due to irritation in the nerve roots in the region. Or there’s a strain in the muscles of that area. Then there’s the possibility of a degenerating intervertebral disc.

Is It All a Coincidence?

Depression stems from different life circumstances we face. For instance, the death of a family member or losing a job. This condition results in an individual’s ability to enjoy life and the activities they once did.

It’s hard to conclude definitively that back pain and depression correlate. However, when you look at the data, you’ll see those who are depressed somewhat set themselves up for lower back pain.

For instance, they don’t work out as much or do any physical activities. Or they suffer from sleep disorders that can wear down the body. Increased physical activity and restful sleep show improvements in back pain.

Not to mention, the disruption in neural transmitters that affect mood can also diminish your pain threshold.

Treating Back Pain and Depression

Typically, doctors will look to treat both the depression and lower back pain at once. For instance, receiving psychiatric and chiropractic therapy at once.

At Davis Clinic of Chiropractic Inc., we can provide you with top-notch chiropractic care. We also offer assistance with depression using neurofeedback therapies and various others.

If you’re currently suffering from back pain and are depressed, then we can help you. Contact us today to see how we can assist you in becoming happy and pain-free.

Did you know that 11% of Americans are living with chronic pain?

When you break this down, it calculates to about 25.3 million people.

Most feel a lot of pain in their joints, muscles or bones for a period of months or years. Whatever the cause of the pain, when it lasts too long, it can impair your ability to function daily.

And for some, it inhibits their ability to work. But before reaching this point, it’s best to use preventive methods to remain pain free.

Let’s review some tips on how to do so.

Wear the Right Shoes So You Can Be Pain Free

This is important whether you’re working out, running or walking.

When you’re wearing the wrong type of shoes, it can lead to pain in your feet, legs, and hips. And it’s especially important to have the right shoes when you’re running or working out.

Not doing so can lead to additional injuries.

Lift Objects Correctly

A lot of people lift large and heavy objects incorrectly. And this leads to them going from having a pain free life to one filled with agony. Your lower back is very fragile, so it’s necessary to safeguard it any way you can.

One way is to ensure you squat down before you lift versus bending over to lift. Your legs will support your back rather than have your back do all the lifting.

Sit with a Good Posture

You don’t have to be working at a factory to get a back injury. If you’re one who sits at a desk most of the day, then you too are at risk of getting a spinal injury.

Poor posture is the culprit here. You can correct your posture by sitting in an ergonomic chair and have your monitor at eye level. It’s also essential to set a timer, so you can get up and walk around every hour or so.

Stand up desks are growing in popularity for this reason.

Stay Physically Active

The more out of shape you become, the more prone you are to injury. Trying to lift heavy objects, run up a flight of stairs or do anything else that’s more strenuous than a sedentary activity can injure you.

By remaining active, your muscles, joints, and bones stay strong enough to handle just about any task.

Just make sure you perform your exercises with a proper form, so you don’t end up pulling a muscle or worse.

Go to a Chiropractor

Some people believe you don’t go to a chiropractor until they have an injury. However, going to one can actually prevent all sorts of pain. The cracks and adjustments will keep you in alignment, so your joints and bones don’t ache.

A chiropractor will do this to your entire body. Plus, they can identify problems before they grow into major issues.

Use these Tips to Stay Pain Free

Knowledge is power, but only if you put it to use. These tips can be a great help if you’re serious about leading a pain free life.

If you’re trying to prevent pain or already have some, you can get the assistance of a chiropractor. In many cases, they can help you avoid surgery and medication.

This is exactly what they do at Davis Spine Institute. Contact us today to see how we can help prevent or treat your pain.


braincore-neurofeedback-450x300-1.jpeg

December 18, 2017 BrainCore

 

Depression is often a misunderstood mental health condition. Yet, over 40 million Americans are struggling with it. Moreover, there are negative stigmas associated. Sufferers are often told they’re lazy or overly emotional. Many people brush off the idea of depression as something to ”just get over”. But depression is a serious condition that requires treatment.

The good news is that awareness around depression and available treatments are on the rise. Braincore neurofeedback is one such revolutionary treatment. It’s a powerful way to overcome this mental disorder, bringing new hope to millions of people across the globe.

Understanding Depression and Neuroplasticity

Negative stigmas aside, you may be depressed and not even know it. This condition affects all aspects of your life, including how you feel, act, and think. Most sufferers experience:

  • Feeling sad most of the time
  • Losing interest in hobbies
  • Loss of appetite or emotional eating
  • Oversleeping or restless sleeping
  • Feelings of malaise
  • Feelings of worthlessness or guilt
  • Difficulty thinking and making decisions
  • Thoughts of death or suicide

The brain is an incredibly powerful muscle – this is where neuroplasticity comes in. Neuroplasticity is the brain’s mechanism for creating brand new neural pathways. Our brains are far from hard-wired – they have the ability to heal themselves.

Braincore neurofeedback works on the basis of neuroplasticity. Basically, it teaches our brains to react and think differently in order to beat depression.

Braincore Neurofeedback Explained

Braincore neurofeedback is also known as EEG biofeedback. This form of therapy monitors your brain’s electrical activity, such as the brainwaves. It also tracks the reactions of all five forms of brainwaves: delta, theta, alpha, beta, and gamma.

During this process, a therapist regulates your brainwaves by tracking brain activity. He sends this information back to the brain via computer imagery and electrical signals. Sounds like a big ol’ bunch of quack straight out of the ’60’s, doesn’t it? Well, the process does date back to this time period.

Initially, Neurotherapy was used on NASA astronauts to prevent rocket-fuel induced seizures. And yes, they were successful.

Essentially, Braincore neurofeedback is a form of learning for the brain. This organ begins to adjust itself to the positive signals sent by electrical stimuli and imagery. The treatment is not only used to treat depression but a host of other conditions including:

  • Anxiety
  • ADD
  • ADHD
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Learning disabilities
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • PTSD
  • Insomnia
  • Migraines
  • Traumatic brain injuries and memory loss

The goal of neurofeedback is to improve your brain’s ability to self-regulate without medications.

You can get your life back on track as your brain learns how to maintain its flexibility between states of relaxation and stress.

About 8 in 10 people in the U.S. will have back issues at some point in their lives. With numbers like that it’s no wonder most of us view the oncoming Christmas season with as much trepidation as we do cheer.

But back pain needn’t put a dampener on the holidays.

Here are 5 tips to help manage your back pain this season.

1. Don’t Shop Til You Drop

Americans spend a lot of time at the mall. It might not seem like it, but shopping puts a mighty strain on the body. As well as being on your feet for long stretches, you’re also lifting and carrying bags, shifting your weight unevenly, and often forgetting to hydrate.

If you can’t avoid the mall, be mindful of how long you spend on your feet. Take regular breaks to sit and give your back a rest. Make use of trollies and don’t be proud of loading the car up all by yourself.

If you can avoid the hustle and bustle altogether that’s even better. Look at buying your gifts online and having them pre-wrapped and delivered.

2. Keep up Your Routine

Once the holidays hit it can be all too easy to let your eating and exercise routines fall by the wayside. But while skipping your stretches to get a head start on your Christmas cooking may seem harmless, ’tis the season to stay on top of your self-care.

Christmas is a strenuous time, both mentally and physically. Taking care of yourself by maintaining your stretching and strength exercises is essential lest you ring in the new year in pain.

3. Meal Prep Is Your Friend

Putting on a spread for the big day? Plan your cooking ahead of time so you’re not over-exerting yourself rushing around on the day.

Activities like chopping and dicing can be done ahead of all the major cooking. You also needn’t be hunched over the bench to do it. Look around and see if there are other surface areas to use that will put less strain on your back issues – the dining room table for example.

Don’t stay in any one position for too long at a time. If you’re prone to losing yourself in a task and forgetting to shift, employ a kitchen timer to remind you to sit, stand, or stretch.

4. Don’t Be Afraid to Ask for Help

It can seem galling to ask for help with activities that you used to achieve alone with no issues but remember your family and friends would rather lend a hand than see you in pain.

Don’t be afraid to delegate tasks like shopping and cooking preparations. Getting the kids involved in decorating or present wrapping is a great way to give your back a break and give them some extra responsibility to boot.

5. Be Kind to Yourself

Christmas is a strenuous time for anyone, let alone someone with chronic back issues. It’s important to be kind to yourself and your body during the runaround.

Take frequent breaks and keep yourself hydrated. You may need to lean more heavily on your coping mechanisms as the silly season ramps up but be mindful that this isn’t a failing on your part.

Back Issues Needn’t Ruin the Holidays

Back pain can be particularly disruptive over the holiday season. With these 5 points, you can keep your back problems in hand and help manage your holiday stress to boot.

December 5, 2017 Healthy LivingWeight Loss

Need help losing weight before the holidays? The busy hectic holidays are approaching fast. You might think you don’t have time to lose that weight. But you do! It won’t even require a strenuous exercise regiment.

The traditional routes of diet and exercise are not effective enough for most people. Add the stress of the holidays, and they’re nearly impossible.

Read on to see how you can lose weight with a program that won’t require you to drastically change your life.

Forget the Diet and Exercise Programs

If you’ve tried to lose weight in the past, you may have had the “plateau” experience. You change your diet and start exercising, only to see your weight just plateau. What happened? Your body became accustomed to your weight loss plan and began to make its own adjustments.

Other factors can derail your efforts, too. If you’re suffering from chronic back or knee pain, getting started with an exercise program can be difficult (if not impossible). Yet, you also know that movement with pain is important and that losing weight could help to ease that pain. It’s a Catch-22, but don’t give up hope. With newer and more effective technology, you can lose weight before the holidays!

Introducing Chirothin and Zerona Laser Therapy

Zerona is a new, non-invasive body contouring procedure. It targets excess fat without the negative side effects associated with some surgical methods. This technology was once used to help assist in liposuction procedures. Researchers found that the cold laser treatment also helped patients to emulsify fat from the:

  • Waist
  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Bra area
  • Knees
  • Ankles

This technology, along with our fat-burning weight loss program, has enabled some patients to lose up to 40 pounds in as little as 6 weeks! Others have reported losing 25 inches in as little as 6 weeks.

How Does Zerona Work?

It’s simple. You lie down in a comfortable position in a relaxed environment while the cold laser does all the work. Since Zerona uses cold laser technology, you’ll feel nothing during the procedure. The only thing you’ll feel is lighter as you exit the treatment area.

The Zerona low-level laser is applied to the targeted areas of the body. This is generally for 20 minutes on the front or anterior side. The same treatment is then applied to the back or posterior side.

Is Zerona Laser Therapy Safe?

Yes. In fact, it’s the only body contouring device of its kind that has been approved safe by the FDA.

Best of all, it’s 100% effective!

You can expect to lose inches from your waist, hips, and thighs in the first two weeks. As an added bonus, losing this weight could be the first step in easing chronic back or knee pain.

You CAN Lose Weight Before the Holidays

Forget the fad diets. You’ll have more success with the Zerona Laser Treatment at the Davis Clinic of Chiropractic in The Villages® and you won’t have to disrupt your life to get results. Plus, the reduction in pain from losing weight will give you a renewed sense of living!

For more information on our effective weight loss program coupled with Zerona Laser Treatment, contact us today. We’ll help you say goodbye to that extra weight before the holidays.
