At Sierra Tahoe Laser and Wellness Center, Dr. Michael Nelson treats patients of all backgrounds through a nurturing, holistic philosophy. Dr. Nelson draws on 19 years of experience in chiropractic and functional medicine as he follows a lab-based approach to identify the root causes of bodily issues, using detailed reports and recommendations to help mend everything from adrenal fatigue to Type 2 diabetes.

The Class IV laser, meanwhile, targets deep tissue and alleviates maladies such as arthritis and ligament sprains from competitive rock, paper, scissors tournaments.
