Dr. Brian Anderson is an assistant professor and attending clinician at the NUHS Whole Health Center in Lombard. Before coming to National University he spent time in private practice at a large integrative medicine clinic. His areas of expertise are mechanical diagnosis and therapy (MDT), rehabilitation of spine for pain management, functional medicine and research methodology and interpretation.
He earned his doctor of chiropractic and his master of science in advanced clinical practice from National University along with his master of public health from Benedictine University. He is also certified as a clinical nutritionist and in mechanical diagnosis and therapy.
Dr. Anderson is currently working toward his doctorate in health sciences at Northern Illinois University. A big focus of the doctorate program and research is interdisciplinary patient care, which he encourages students to pursue. He believes the most important thing doctors can teach patients is how to care for themselves. This might take the form of lifestyle advice or specific exercises for their musculoskeletal complaint. Too often health challenges prevent people from doing what they are passionate about; Dr. Anderson's goal is to get them back doing those things.
