Patrick Ward, D.C., F.I.A.M.A.
A native to Christiana, Delaware, Dr. Ward received a Bachelor of Arts in General Sciences with an emphasis in Chemistry from Lincoln University and then went on to obtain not only his Doctorate in Chiropractic from Life University in Marietta, Georgia in 1999 but also received an Acupuncture certification in 2005. While obtaining his doctorate and treating patients is his foundation, Dr. Ward continues his education unlike most, by completing over 40 seminars during his tenure to date that range from but are not limited to, Graston Technique, Kinesio Taping, Foot Leveler Orthotic Training, and most recent Selective Functional Motion Assessment. His unique ability to make complex situations enticing, has led him to annually take these seminars so that he may only not improve the care that he gives to his patients by keeping up with what is current, but to also continue to feed the side of himself that is eager to learn.
Dr. Ward’s passion has always lied with being able to assist others. It is not something that he does but is genuinely who he is. His approach is unique and the relationships that are grown with anyone who walks into his practice come naturally. His sense of humor will always lighten the room, his smile is infectious, and his personality sanguine and enthusiastic, but when it comes to someone’s care, is very direct and encouraging. He has committed his life to promoting optimal health and well-being of patients. A “whole person approach” to wellness is taken at his office in Wilmington, Delaware which means that Dr. Ward, as well as the patient, look for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time, identifying that cause, intervening, and making lifestyle adjustments that would optimize conditions for normal function and a higher quality of life. Using this unique approach, Dr. Ward has been able to assist his community accelerate or even maintain your journey to good health.
Dr. Ward’s influence has not only excelled in his private practice but has also expanded to being the DMA Cross Country Team Chiropractor, Brandywine Warriors Football Team Chiropractor, being on the board for Wilmington Headstart and his drive has allowed him to begin the AIM Well Program in conjunction with the Children’s Exercise and Nutrition Program. He serves as a mentor to many of the youth in the area and also grants individuals an opportunity to complete internships to expose them to opportunities that may not be afforded to many. When not in the office, Dr. Ward enjoys spending time with his family, playing with his dogs Remi and Luna, and enjoys his sports.
