meet the team

We believe that your health is a reflection of your lifestyle choices, so we take a whole person approach when it comes to your wellness and chiropractic needs. Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on treating disease once it occurs, Sea Coast emphasizes reducing the risk of it occurring in the first place by improving your health. We work with you in three key areas of your life – how you eat, think and move. We personally tailor a wellness program that fits your needs and goals using the least invasive, yet highly effective, techniques and services. Moving beyond just treating symptoms, we work with you to pinpoint what can be causing them in the first place and support your body’s self-healing properties.

Chiropractor Wilmington NC Brent Seaver


Brent Seaver D.C.

Dr. Brent Seaver was born in 1974 in Keokuk, Iowa, along with his twin brother. He entered the chiropractic world after a car accident left him unable to lay flat. For six months, he slept in a recliner. He tried physical therapy, orthopedic surgery, osteopath, and many medications — with minimal results.

Then he found a chiropractor and started noticing relief from pain, the ability to sleep lying flat again, and even an eventual resolution of his seasonal allergies. Mindful of his overall improvement, he wanted to explore the possibilities of helping others with their health. That's where he discovered what it means to be a chiropractor.

Below are a few professional and personal highlights of Dr. Brent’s adult life to date:

  • Graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic with a Bachelor of Science and Doctorate of Chiropractic, where he focused his training in the Gonstead Technique Club and Sports Injury Club, expanding his training in sports injuries and mechanical analysis of the spine.
  • Moved to Sydney, Australia, in 1998 and practiced chiropractic for one year, then moved to Cairns, Australia, for the next two years. While enjoying the adventures of diving the Great Barrier Reef, he would fly to the Cape York Peninsula to treat the remote population in Cooktown and the surrounding areas while also serving the Cairns and Mareeba communities.
  • Moved to Hampstead, North Carolina, in 2002 to practice chiropractic while reuniting with his twin brother, who was stationed at New River Air Base (in Jacksonville), flying helicopters for the Marines.
  • Moved to Shallotte, North Carolina, and practiced for five years with Family First Health Center.
  • Joined Sea Coast Chiropractic and Wellness in early 2020 and now serves our local Wilmington community and surrounding areas.

Dr. Seaver focuses on making sure his patients understand their problem and what needs to be done to correct it. Then, he gets to work on restoring optimal nerve function and health through chiropractic adjustment, education on food/nutritional habits, and a better understanding of exercise and body movement.
