Christopher Wood, D.C., C.C.S.P., M.U.A.C.
His participation and love for sports coupled with his desire to learn more natural ways to treat injuries led Dr. Wood into the Rehabilitation field in the early 1980’s when he was given a position in the rehabilitation and sports medicine department at his alma mater, California State University, Fullerton. There he helped treat and rehabilitate the college’s 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.
Feeling that Chiropractic offered more treatment options than Physical Therapy, Dr. Wood applied 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 numerous sporting events and provided drwood_adjust2.jpgmany educational lectures. He has also worked closely with a number of High School and Club athletic teams. His office, Arizona Sports Chiropractic and Wellness Center, provides all the tools necessary to treat a variety of injuries for patients of all ages.
Dr. Wood is currently establishing The Center for Postural and Ergonomic Development which will help educate and treat patients with the most common cause of musculoskeletal injuries today….Postural Dysfunction.
When he is not working, Dr. Wood enjoys spending time with his family and coaching youth football.
