    Ryan Woods, Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr. Ryan Woods moved to Boone in 1984 and has called it home ever since. Ryan fell in love with the mountains and the outdoors which provide ample trails for running and hills for skiing. At Watauga High School Ryan excelled in cross country and was a member of the 1996 4A State Championship team. From there he took his studies and running legs to NC State University where he majored in Zoology. Ryan walked-on to the Cross Country team which was nationally ranked. After some early struggles Ryan’s running made a huge break through in 2000 under the guidance of a skilled chiropractor. By graduation Ryan earned the distinction of All American and Atlantic Coast Conference Champion. He also became obsessed with optimal living. After graduation Ryan chose a career in chiropractic because of the profession’s ability to optimize performance and prevent injury in his personal running career. Ryan attended Palmer Chiropractic College in Florida where he studied as many techniques as he could learn. Today he continues to set an example of healthy living and still strives for optimal performance whenever he laces up his running shoes.  Ryan utilizes the Palmer package of adjusting focusing on Diversified technique and the Activator protocols with a focus on the soft tissue with Active Release Technique and Graston Technique.
