Drs Zair and Dias-Zair Study with Lance Armstrong's Chiropractor!

Late last month, Dr. Zair, my husband and partner, and I attended a seminar in Scottsdale and were part of a small group of doctors privileged to learn from Dr. Jeff Spencer! As the team chiropractor, he helped the United States Postal Service Cycling team achieve 8 consecutive victories at the Tour de France! As Lance Armstrong's personal chiropractor, Dr. Spencer worked with the team closely, keeping their spine aligned and nervous system optimally charged for the gruelling demands of the tour.
We spend a day and a half with Dr. Jeff, learning hands on techniques in cold laser therapy and assessment protocols. I have to say, it was an honor just to be in his company and pleasantly surprising how humble a doctor with such accomplishments can be. (He himself competed on the US Olympic cycling team in 1972.) We just scratched the surface on the science behind cold laser but as a patient myself of the treatment, I do feel the difference and my shoulder range of motion has improved even faster! (I have my rolfer, Mark Hutton to thank for that too! He is one of the very few in the Northwest Valley that integrates laser therapy in his office).

Stay tuned and we'll keep you updated on our experience with cold laser.
