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.

Eric & Kelli C.
My wife Kelli started coming to Active Care for some recurring neck pain, while I was seeing another chiropractor in town. As I became increasingly disappointed with my own doctor, Kelli kept encouraging me to give Active Care a try. I'm incredibly glad I did. Not only did Dr. McGraw listen to the multiple issues I was having and devise a plan that really got results, the staff is incredibly friendly and very flexible in accommodating my unpredictable schedule. My wife and I have both been extremely happy with the results we've gotten from the active release therapy. We're both able to continue enjoying our physical activities without pain, and more importantly, we're able to keep up with our two energetic girls. Thanks to Dr. McGraw and the great staff at Active Care Chiropractic!
Thanks Active Care for keeping me healthy and able to pursue my random goals!
I struggled with lower back pain for about two years. It affected daily tasks like getting dressed, going for walks, and cooking. Active Care Chiropractic was able to see me quickly, and Dr. Bradburn developed a plan to help me get better. He used a variety of techniques such as adjustments, active release therapy, and exercises to relieve the pain and increase my mobility.
My quality of life has improved dramatically since receiving treatment, and now that I'm not in constant discomfort, I'm able to move much more easily. Throughout the whole process Dr. Bradburn and his entire staff were very professional, friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. They always made time to answer my questions and work with my schedule. I am so grateful to have found quality care, and awesome results!
