Stretching TIPS by a Chiropractor in Rockledge Florida

Back pain is a very common reason someone comes to La Starza Wellness in Rockledge.  If you are in pain, you should never stretch yet.  Stretching should be done after the inflammation and pain has gone down and the pain has decreased significantly.  Never start any stretching and/or an exercise program unless you talk to your Doctor first.  When stretching, make sure it does not hurt.  If so, back off and dont push so far as your mobility and range of motion will improve over time. If your looking for a Chiropractor, Acupuncture treatment, or K-Laser therapy, call La Starza Wellness today and see how a stretching and strengthening program can help you with your health goals.

Chiropractor in Rockledge talks about STEM CELL TREATMENT WARNING SIGNS


Many patients are confused when it comes to stem cell treatments.   Patients have 2 questions; 'Should I do it and can I?'"  If the patent can do it, then they assume that "they should" do it and that can be very dangerous. There needs to be much more research on stem cell therapy.

The International Society for Stem Cell Research warns patients if:

1. Claims there is "No Risk" (all medical procedures carry some type of risk)
2. Source of stem cells is not clearly documented
3. There should be a protocol manual that the Medical Physician follows that shows how the treatment is done.
4. Making claims based on patient testimonials
5. Legitimate clinical trials don't charge patients.  Some clinics even pay patients to participate
6. The same stem cells are used to treat multiple diseases

There are many great alternatives that cost less and are more effective.  Call us today at 321-230-7071 to see if we can help you with your health challenge.  We provided Chiropractic care, Acupuncture, and K-Laser therapy.  We have been helping patents in Rockledge over 10 years.

School physicals in Rockledge, Florida

Students in grades K - 12 who are making their entry into a Florida school must present a record of a physical exam completed within the past 12 months.   The exam form should be taken to the childs school upon enrollment. 

School Physicals are also required when a student starts a sport in order to make sure everything is ok and safe to participate and there are no contraindications.  The "sport physical" is known as the pre participation physical examination (PPE). After talking to many parents that come to our office, many were not even aware that a Chiropractor can do school physicals.  Many patients have had to wait 2 or more hours just to get a physical for their kid(s).  At La Starza Wellness, can get a school physical and it usually takes approximately 15 minutes and the fee is ONLY 20.  We have the form in our office, so you do not need to bring a form with you.  If you need a school sports physical, call us today

CAUTION! Laser pain therapy CLINICS with NO DOCTOR?

Over the last few years laser pain therapy has become more and more popular.  Laser pain therapy is very effective in relieving pain and helping patients function. Many laser pain centers have sales people and NOT PHYSICIANS giving patients medical advice on whatever health challenge they may be facing. I have personally witnessed laser office owners, sales people, and even staff ; give patients advice on treatment recommendations, looking at x-rays or MRIs acting as a Physician.  Please avoid these offices as they have no medical degree.  They will usually have a medical director who is a physician put his or her name on the business, but are never in the office and therefore you never meet with a doctor.  
There are many great offices who have actual Physicians that do a complete case history, examination, and review any significant diagnostic imaging before they recommend any treatment.  After a physician reviews your case and gives you recommendations it is then ok for another staff member to use the laser.  Here at La Starza Wellness you will always see a Medical Doctor and/or a Chiropractor before any treatment is recommended.
Any questions please call 321-230-7071 or check out
