Arizona Sports Chiropractic - Dr. Wood

Christopher Wood, D.C., C.C.S.P., M.U.A.C.

Owner and Chiropractor

His love for sports, experience as an amateur athlete, and desire to treat athletes with a more natural approach led Dr. Wood into the rehabilitation field in the mid-1980s when he was given a position in the Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation department at his Alma Mater, Cal State Fullerton. There he helped treat the athletes and student population. To further his knowledge base he accepted a position as a Physical Therapy Assistant at South Coast Physical Therapy in Orange County, California where he worked hand in hand with Orthopedic surgeons and Physical Therapists providing non and post-surgical rehabilitation. He graduated from Cal State Fullerton in 1989 with a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Medicine achieving a 4.0 GPA in his major.

After receiving his undergraduate degree, Dr.Wood applied to and was accepted to the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic. During his studies there he served as the President of the school’s Sports Injury Council. Dr. Wood graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1993 with his Doctorate degree in Chiropractic. Soon after, he undertook and successfully completed his coursework as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician.

During his career in the Phoenix area, Dr. Wood has worked at countless sporting events and given numerous educational lectures. He has worked closely with and supported youth sports clubs and schools. Despite his success, Dr. Wood is continually driven to further his certifications as a DNS Exercise Instructor, Manipulation Under Anesthesia, Functional Movement Assessment, and Dry Needling among others.
