Meet The Chiropractor
Dr. Mick Wilson
San Diego Chiropractor & Explorer
Born in the scenic Pioneertown near Joshua Tree, I ventured to San Diego over two decades ago for my studies at San Diego State University. My chiropractic journey was shaped at the University of Western States in Portland, but San Diego’s charm brought me back, with its therapeutic beach energy influencing my practice’s location.
Embracing the philosophy that movement is medicine, I’ve dedicated my life to restoring spinal movement, aiding natural healing, and reigniting passions in my patients. The profound impact on their lives reinforced my calling.
Beyond my clinic, I cherish moments with my wife Ashlyn and our French bulldog, Waylon. Our shared wanderlust has painted our years with global adventures. My downtime is spent breathing life into classic vehicles, with a ’73 Bronco and ’95 fj80 currently under restoration. Life for me is a blend of healing, exploring, and cherishing every moment.
“Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is a paradox: What is flexible is strong.‘ – Lao Tzo

Dr. Mick Wilson champions simplicity in his approach to good health. His philosophy? In a word: Motion. For the body to perform at the highest level, in all lifestyles, responsible living and a regimen of motion are integral. A simple answer to many of our health problems is the prescription of movement.
A Modern Approach: Motion – Flexibility – Strength
A moving joint is a healthy joint. A flexible muscle is a healthy muscle. A strong body is a healthy body. As the joints begin to move and the muscles surrounding the joints begin to relax strengthening can occur. Once joints and muscles are moving, Dr. Mick Wilson enacts a strengthening routine using functional movement to improve the condition of muscles and assist the body in self-correcting posture. A regimen of motion therefore allows for improved health, flexibility, and overall wellness.
Dr. Mick Wilson encourages patients to be active participants in their own care. In addition to Chiropractic adjustment and manipulation he provides diet advising and improved active lifestyle recommendations.
Eclectic Experience: A Chiropractor in the Community
Comprehensive experience in a community setting has helped to shape a Chiropractic technique of Doctor-Patient collaborative health improvement. Having treated patients of diverse history afflicted with a variety of health issues has afforded Dr. Mick Wilson an encompassing exposure to physical ailments.
While involved with the Sports Medicine Group in Chiropractic College Dr. Mick Wilson was given the opportunity to treat a variety of athletes. From Mixed Martial Arts participants to Cyclocross riders; from avid runners to weekend warriors; Dr. Mick Wilson has treated patients with an array of injuries. He has assisted athletes in improving physical performance and decreasing recovery time.
Giving back to the community through treatment, Dr. Mick Wilson provided Chiropractic therapy to both the homeless community and to residents dealing with chemical dependencies while practicing at a non-profit clinic in Portland, Oregon. His time at Columbia Integrated Care, a University of Western States affiliated clinic, provided him an opportunity to treat additional members of the Portland community.
Now a member of the San Diego community, Dr. Mick Wilson hopes to use his eclectic experience to foster a continued culture of active lifestyle in Southern California. The Sun, the Ocean, and the Mountains call for a lifestyle of constant motion, there is no better place to be healthy than in Pacific Beach….
A Passion for Health: The Active Lifestyle
A passion for the human body, in particular the mechanics and biology of its workings, led to a bachelor of science degree in Biology from San Diego State University. A desire and longing to assist others in their quests to improve personal health pointed Dr. Mick Wilson towards the Doctor of Chiropractic program at the University of Western States.
Being immersed in the intensive university program solidified both the desire to help those in need and a rock solid passion for human health. Coupled with his love of working out and his active lifestyle, this passion to foster good health in himself and those around him makes Dr. Mick an asset to patients. His goal is to create an atmosphere of encouragement towards better individual health, active lifestyle, and rewarding life experience.
After a full day’s work at Symmetry Health Dr. Mick Wilson enjoys hanging out and TRAVELING with his wife Ashlyn. He also enjoys coaching at CrossFit Kivnon, being outside, rain or shine, with his playful french bulldog Waylon. He spends time doing CrossFit, lifting weights, working on their house, and hanging out with his twin brother and friends.
