Meet the Chiropractor

Dr. Townsend was educated at the prestigious and progressive Life West Chiropractic College in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. Life West is a leading Chiropractic college offering unique exploration and training in many different areas of chiropractic techniques and research.

Prior to attending Life West Dr. Townsend helped the people of the San Francisco Bay Area in the emergency medical field as a Paramedic. He helped countless patients during their most trying times and developed a knack for reassuring and calming patients during a crisis. Dr. Townsend is able to utilize and blend these experiences to suit individual patient needs and preferences. Each patient's spine is unique; therefore each patient's care plan must be unique as well.

He interned in a large busy San Francisco based office seeing up to 500 patients a week. Doctor Townsend moved his family to Vermont in order to operate a practice where he could spend the time necessary with each patient to form a trusting bond and lasting relationship that would deliver effective total care. He opened his South Burlington, Vermont based practice in 2001. He remains accessible to all of his patients, new and established. The Doctor believes that healing takes many forms. And armed with that philosophy Chiropractic First engages in ongoing community outreach programs which benefit local charities.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."
    Neck Pain
  • "I have benefitted tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine: golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
    Back Pain
  • "Dr. Anderson has allowed me to be headache free for quite some time now. I used to have daily nagging headaches that often would turn into a migraine leaving me unable to function. For the longest time, I thought I could just keep taking medication to have the pain subside."
  • "As a court reporter, using my hands to type on a daily basis is a requirement. The work is speedy and can often last for hours at a time. Several months ago, every movement I made became excruciatingly painful. I started seeing Dr. Anderson and he put together a program for me that helped right away. He stressed the importance of my posture and proper hand and arm placement."
    Carpal Tunnel
  • "It's been 7 months since I got wiped out by a monster wave. I sought treatment at the hospital and they took x-rays and said everything seemed normal, that I would just have some pain for a few days. A few days actually turned into several weeks, so at the suggestion of my girlfriend, I went to see Dr. Anderson."
