Dr. Scott B. Smith was born and raised in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. When Dr. Scott was young, he wanted to be a physician. Yet he realized that most people would take a pill for their problems, only covering up the symptoms. As Scott researched the different health care fields, he learned that Chiropractors eliminate the biomechanical cause of disease, allowing the body to heal itself.
In December of 1997, Dr. Smith graduated from Logan Chiropractic College in St. Louis, Missouri.
Dr. Smith opened his own office where he still practices:

It is my objective to raise the bar for the standard of care for chronic neck and low back pain patients.
I get excellent results here for three reasons: One, I only accept patients who are candidates for this procedure and I truly believe I can help. Two, I make it easy to follow the treatment recommendations. Finally, I get such good results because I look for the cause of the true problem and I correct it.

Make an appointment or just send anyone who needs a drug or alcohol test to our testing facility. We will collect their specimen and process their testing. Depending upon your requirements you may have the results within minutes or it may need further analysis and it could take one to four days for the results.
We can come to your business location and perform drug and alcohol screenings. This works best for multiple employee testing and reduces time spent off the job, liability in sending personnel off site, and is convenient for employer and employees.

What is Lipo Laser?
The lipo laser utilizes the latest low level cold laser technology to reduce girth and spot fat over almost all areas of the body without surgery, down time, or redness. A typical 30 minute waistline treatment can reduce an individual by 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch in a single session; while a full 12 treatment protocol usually results in multiple inches lost.
How does it work?
Lasers safely penetrate a patients skin at a specific wavelength targeted for adipose (fat) cells. Adipose cells are permeated, releasing free fatty acids (FFAs), water and glycerol. Together these compounds are known as triglycerides. Triglycerides are normally released from fat cells when the body needs energyy. Once released the glycerol and FFAs are used by the body as an energy source. Adipose cells shrink significantly resulting in inch loss for the patient. Exercise or a 10 minute whole body vibration immediately following lipo laser treatments help to burn the released FFAs and help stimulate the lymphatic system.
Why is it different?
The lipo laser's non-invasive treatment is considered one of the most innovative methods to treat stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. Laser lipo treatments help create a new and improved look without any pain or discomfort.
Most people are familiar with traditional liposuction and some with the new 'Smart Lipo' procedure. Laser lipo, however, has some advantages over these procedures due to the fact that there is no need for either local or general anesthetics. Lipo laser also carries fewer risks than traditional liposuction and there is no risk of scarring and no recovery time.
What should I expect?
For best results, a minimum of 12 treatments are required per body area. Each laser treatment lasts 30 minutes. The laser paddles are placed on your body for the area we are treating, how many paddles depends on which body area we are working on. You will only feel a minor heating sensation, but you will not experience any pain, discomfort or other sensations.
