About Us

behind the scenes At La Starza Wellness

Merritt Island Chiropractor |
Dr. Marco La Starza

Dr. Marco La Starza attended Parker College of Chiropractic, graduating in 2004. He established a practice in Rockledge, spending 16 years there before deciding to make a change. La Starza Wellness opened in Merritt Island in 2019, allowing Dr. La Starza to serve patients in his home area. You might recognize Dr. La Starza from his episode of “Island Life” on HGTV! He loves being in our area with the beach as his backyard and so much to do for his entire family. There are some essential ingredients you need to be healthy. Chiropractic is a part of how you can take proper care of yourself, along with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

At La Starza Wellness, we understand that you may be visiting us because you’re experiencing a form of discomfort. You’re searching for a resolution to your challenges so that you can continue doing all of the things you love. Dr. La Starza will help to eliminate your pain by creating a care plan specific to your needs.  Then, he’ll assist you in maintaining that level of correction to keep you healthy in the future.

Growing Up In A Chiropractic Family

As a child, Dr. La Starza grew up with a chiropractor uncle. When someone in the family got hurt or sick, going to the family chiropractor was always the first choice. Growing up playing sports and having a family that was into health and fitness led Dr. La Starza to research careers that involved health care that would get to the root cause of the problem(s). When Dr. La Starza was in high school, he knew early on that he wanted to be a chiropractor. After many years of undergraduate college, he moved to Dallas Texas to attend Parker College of Chiropractic to earn his Bachelor of Science in Anatomy as well as his Doctor of Chiropractic.

A Deep Understanding Of Your Health Struggles

Dr. La Starza understands what it’s like to have a serious health condition and go to many doctors’ offices, specialists and have many tests done that ultimately lead nowhere.

“Chiropractic keeps me healthy. I’m blessed that I can get that support for a healthy lifestyle.”

Dr. La Starza stays up to date with the latest research and techniques in health care. He was named a Young Alumni for Parker College of Chiropractic, his alma mater, in 2009. His additional qualifications include certification in acupuncture.

Putting God And Family First

When Dr. La Starza is not serving patients at the office, he is with his wife Shawna and his three boys: Merrick, Easton and Roman. Their personalities are all unique and different. Dr. La Starza loves spending family time outdoors or even taking a quick trip to Orlando. He also enjoys martial arts, flying airplanes and K9 dog training.

“God uses everyone in many unique ways. He has given me the gift of chiropractic healing and uses me to heal people every day. Chiropractic is not a job but a gift I was given to share with the world. Your health affects everything you do and everyone you know.”

This place is awesome! I have been going for almost five months and I can’t describe how much better I feel mentally and physically. The doctors and all the rest of the staff are professional and yet caring and understanding. As soon as you walk into their office you can feel the good and calming vibes. And it only gets better with the healing process. Thank you all for being here when I needed you!!

I have never been to a chiropractor previously and didn’t know what to fully expect of the experience. From the minute I walked in, I was welcomed and felt at ease. Dr. La Starza did a thorough examination and spoke with me about my concerns as well as how it was limiting me from activities. He synthesized that information into my short and long term care plan and was very straightforward with his recommendations and costs. I truly appreciated that along and decided to proceed. I have had a few weeks of treatment now and can already feel a reduction of the tension in my upper back as well as an improvement to my digestive system and knee functionality. It has absolutely been worth it!
