I highly recommend Vermont Laser Chiropractic!
I have had chronic neck, mid and lower back pain, since an accident in 2004. I have never been able to say that I had a day without pain. After one laser treatment, with Vermont Laser Chiropractic, I noticed that my mid back pain was almost gone, and my neck and lower back pain was significantly less. I have had a couple more treatments to help with the lower back and neck pain, and only return for treatment if I have aggravated the sites.”

Dr. Shawn McDermott is a compassionate problem solver who radiates kindness and wisdom. He listens well, asks excellent questions, and diligently searches for the root of a problem. His expertise in the chiropractic field is stellar. His technique is gentle. He is soft spoken, but his words of advice on how to heal are powerful. Not only is he exceptionally skilled at manually adjusting bodies into alignment, he utilizes cutting-edge technology. It has been proven that when light is emitted at a specific wavelength (635 nanometers), it generates cellular healing. Dr. McDermott has invested in top of the line cold lasers. The science and research in this area is astounding, and Dr. McDermott’s results are sometimes described as miraculous. If you have a challenge or just like to maintain optimal health, I highly recommend visiting Dr. Shawn McDermott.”

When I was 17, I herniated two lower discs in my back while working on a neighbors dairy farm. For 10 years I tried so many things to improve the pain and my mobility, but nothing seemed to help. I saw 3+ chiropractors, had two different types of physical therapy, cortisone shots, cupping therapy, and took several tripe to the ER where they prescribed me an assortment of pain medicine. You name it, I tried it., and nothing seemed to help. I had lost all hope that I would ever live a “normal” life again. I had given up the physical activities I had always loved so much, I wasn’t sleeping well, and as much as my pain was hurting me physically, it was also very disruptive mentally and emotionally.
All that changed when I started seeing Dr. McDermott (and in time Dr. Drebber). I was hesitant to get my hopes of relief up again, but Shawn was very understanding and he answered all of my questions thoroughly. By my second visit, I was already feeling immense relief in my back, hips, and leg. I absolutely couldn’t believe it, but I was committed to continuing the laser therapy. About two months after I started treatment, I was able to join the gym I had always wanted to try, play softball again, and I was sleeping through the night without pain. Though not as regularly, I still make appointments as needed, and they are always accommodating and quick to get me in.
I keep a stack of Vermont Laser Chiropractic cards in my car, and I am not shy about handing them out. I would recommend at least making a consultation appointment to anyone who lives in pain or is trying to heal their bodies. The science of the lasers, paired with the knowledge and compassion of the gentleman who run them have given me my life back, and that has been a true blessing.”

I have had the pleasure of experiencing Shawn’s work first hand. There are several things that stands out to me. The first is that his nature is truly caring, thorough and inherently a compassionate, born healer. The second is his adjustment technique is incredibly deft, low impact and just enough to manipulate. I’ve never been hurt or in the slightest stressed. The third is his Laser work is very effective and state of the art, a great benefit to the healing process. Lastly his practice never feels likes a processing machine it’s humanistic not materialistic.
As the first and most experienced Acupuncturist in the Upper Valley I have been in the Healing Arts and Martial Arts for over 40 Years and after having experienced at least 5 Chiropractors I can easily say Dr. Shawn McDermott work is my all time favorite and best.”
