Dr. Donald Anderson
Dr. Anderson graduated from Cornell University in 1979. He first became interested in chiropractic while being treated by a chiropractor for a rugby injury. Dr. Anderson was so impressed with how it enabled him to play with a serious disc injury, he decided to pursue chiropractic as a career and help others experience its benefits. He obtained his degree in 1991 from Life University in Marietta, GA. While attending Life University, he was a first side player of the nationally ranked rugby team and played on several tours in the British Isles and France. After graduation, he moved back to his native New England and purchased an existing chiropractic practice in White River Junction, VT. In December of 2010, the office relocated to 2577 Hartford Avenue in Wilder, VT. Dr. Anderson is certified in Active Release Technique, a form of muscle treatment used with many Olympic athletes. He specializes in sports-related injuries, family wellness, and workplace injuries.
Dr. Anderson lives in New Hampshire with his wife Susan and three daughters. An avid outdoors man, he spends much of his free time saltwater fly-fishing, bird hunting, and cross-country skiing.
Dr. David Parella
Dr. Parella graduated from the University of Massachusetts in 1987 with a bachelor’s degree in Zoology. He worked as a Zookeeper at the Utica Zoo, and as a Veterinary Technician at Harvard University’s Primate Research Center. Later experience working as a chiropractic assistant allowed Dr. Parella to see the benefits of the profession, and led him to return to graduate school, obtaining his Doctorate in Chiropractic from the University of Bridgeport.
Dr. Parella lives in Vermont with his wife, Sarah, and two cats Curtis and Fern.
