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've been a satisfied patient with Dr. McGraw and his awesome staff for 4 years now. Initially, I had acute pain that was work and sports related. Rather then just fix it for now, he comprehensively evaluated me from my diet to my posture. His recommendations have allowed me to be pain free ever since. More importantly I am a healthier person. I will continue to with my regular appointments as long as they'll let me in the door, because it works!"
I spent 7 years in the Marine Corps including two combat deployments and three years teaching martial arts to Marines. My neck had gotten to the point where I'd have muscle spasms 2-3 times a week and could barely function. Conventional medicine couldn't cut it and they just gave me muscle relaxers. Dr. Bradburn and his exquisite assistant Kara did such a phenomenal job getting my neck, back, and hip back into shape that I'm now competing in the Highland games.
I cannot tell you enough how drastic of a change this has made in my life and I would doubt that any other chiropractor would give you the same level of care. I finally got into physical therapy for my neck and found out Dr. Bradburn already had me doing all of the right things for it. Exquisite individuals with a wealth of knowledge and a care cup that is always full.
