Dr. Sean Dawson
Our Oak Lawn Chiropractor
Education: National University of Health Science
Hometown: Chicago, IL
Every visitor to Dr. Dawson’s clinic notices how much he loves seeing patients smile. He’s determined to ensure each patient gets the exact care he or she needs and to motivate them all to become their own source of inspiration, and to seek chiropractic first, instead of as a last resort.
During his Chicago childhood Dr. Sean was in and out of the hospital and constantly on rounds of medication due to severe stomach pain. At age 13 he was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and continued to try treatment after failed treatment through age 23. When he decided to pursue a career in holistic medicine, he didn’t realize how far reaching the benefits would be — chiropractic has allowed him to live a life without pain. Since he began paying attention to his spinal health and diet, Dr. Sean no longer experiences Crohn’s related flare-ups.
After graduating with his BS in biomedical science from Grand Valley State University, Dr. Sean earned his master’s degree in acupuncture and his Doctorate of Chiropractic from National University of Health Science. During his time in chiropractic school, he was an active member of the Adjusting Club, Rehab Club, as well as the ACA and ABCA associations.
To promote his own wellness he follows the same advice he gives patients: he exercises, plays golf, tries new clean eating recipes and spends time with family and friends. Martin Luther King, Jr. is a source of inspiration for Dr. Dawson, and he especially loves the quote, “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step,” which he applies to all area of his life.
