Medical Laser Therapy
Low Intensity Laser Therapy, also known as Laser, Cold Laser, Medical Laser, LILT, and LLT is a Clinically proven effective Medical Therapeutic Modality, that utilizes light to naturally stimulate a healing response. The healing process promoted by laser therapy is uniquely and precisiely initiated at a cellular level, where the available cells are noursihed by packets of photon energy (of light), in a similar way that sunlight naturally nourishes the earth's plants, to fuel the process of photosynthesis.
In humans, where the natural healing potential is God-given and programmed, laser therapy effectively turns "on" or speeds up a healing response and process, where possible and when required. Medical Researchers have known that Light has unique properties, which can be harnessed and modified to activate specific healing cells and processes within the body. Past clinical application of electromodalities such as Ultrasound (which uses "Sound" Waves), TENS and IFC, are being phased out in modern clinical and hospital settings, by the advanced therapeutic modality of Laser Therapy.

Dr. Anderson is a Low Intensity Laser Therapy Specialist, and Master Trainer for a Private Clinical Education Group, specializing in Advanced Medical Therapeutics.
Dr. Anderson suffered injuries stemming from a series of Youth Sport related concussions and related spine injuries, that were initially managed by conventional medical treatments prescribed by his Family Doctor.
Eventually he was referred to a chiropractor by his family doctor, which was supported by his mother (a Registered Nurse), for the co-management of debilitating headache symptoms, poor quality of life and deteriorating health. Chiropractic didn't prove to be a fool-proof solution, and it did provide meaningful insight into health and the healing process, which fuelled Dr. Anderson's academic curiosity and interest in possible supplemental treatment approaches. The knowledge gained as a patient under both traditional and alternative medical approaches, continues to be valuable.
Dr. Anderson utilizes a combination of safe and gentle manual manipulation approaches. He appreciates and understands that many different forms of therapy and care exist, including but not limited to chiropractic and he strives to work with Individuals, to develop a treatment approach that meets their needs, and comfort levels.
