WHAT IS ACTIVE
Chiropractic care focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Dr. McGraw and Dr. Bradburn practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment.
Active Release Technique®, or ART®, is a hands-on muscle treatment used to identify and treat soft tissue injuries that can occur from trauma or repetitive over use. Active Release treats scar tissue in muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves without injuring the surrounding soft tissue. Active Release maintains the health of the soft tissue surrounding the joints ensuring proper function of both the soft tissues and the joints.
Scar tissue is the dense, weak connective tissue which forms a scar; it can be found on any tissue on the body, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. This fibrous material binds itself to damaged soft tissue fibers in an effort to draw the damaged fibers back together and can impede the function of surrounding muscles and proper joint motion. This can cause muscle tension and nerve entrapment, leading to a reduced range of motion, loss of strength, pain, or numbness.

I began coming to Active Care in November of 2013 for a nagging neck injury. Dr. McGraw and his staff worked with my crazy schedule to help get me adjusted & back to where I needed to be! Over time, Active Care has helped me with other various injuries like hip pain, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, a hand injury and shoulder pain. With the care of this team I have been able to participate in a Strongman Competition and soon a power lifting meet and Sprint Triathlon.
Thanks Active Care for keeping me healthy and able to pursue my random goals!
Well how could I start... it's been almost two years since I started to have this little pain in my lower back, that was increasing every day, but I kept working and doing “normal life”. I just thought it'll go away, so I didn't tell anybody. But when I was sitting down or standing up I couldn't hide it any more, I wanted to scream because of the pain. My family noticed and told me to take care of it, which I didn't so it just got worse!!
I love to sit on the floor, so one day I decided to try because I felt better, but that was worst thing I could've done, when I wanted to stand up I just couldn't. My brother had to help, I was just crying because of the pain, so I finally got up and went right away to look for a chiropractor. I saw Active Care’s rating online and I called right away. The staff was SO nice and they found a time for my appointment the same day because of my crying and demanding pain voice, so that's when I met my lovely Dr. Bradburn and the next day Dr. McGraw. Then we started treatment at Dr. Bradburn's office. Wow!!!!! What can I tell you, I recommend Active Care to everyone!!!!
Thanks to all the staff for everything, thanks doctors for all the help. Thank you Dr. Bradburn for being so patient with me and even answering my million questions, and helping with my English!!!
If you have a problem just give it a try at Active Care Chiropractic, you won't regret it ;)
P.S. Guess what, I can sit on the floor again!!! God bless!!!"v
