Dr. Sean Woods


Dr. Sean has been in practice for 18 years and has spent all of them in Old Town Alexandria. He has the opportunity to observe the healing power of the body through chiropractic care for people of all ages, from 1 day old to 100 years young. Over the last several years he has incorporated nutrition into his practice. This was not by choice, but out of necessity. Proper nutrition and the right supplementation are crucial to improving any health problem. The technique he uses is called Nutrition Response Testing and is powerful in finding the exact nutrients a body needs in order to heal. He found that restoring balance to the body with chiropractic and nutrition is not only effective in correcting problems, but also helps people reach their most optimal state of well-being.
