I started coming to Dr. McGraw at Active Care Chiropractic in March of 2016. I have suffered from migraines since I was a little girl and for the past 2 years they progressively got worse. I had been under the care of my Primary Care Physician as well as a Neurologist for 2 years trying to solve my migraine issue with medication. My migraines were severe to the point they mimicked the symptoms of a stroke; I had numbness in my face as well as my right side, my vision would become blurred and I had trouble speaking. During the course of my treatment I had a CAT scan, a MRI, and several other tests performed to help solve my migraine problem. I drive for work great distances every day and I was petrified of having a migraine because the only medicine that was prescribed to me made me sleepy. I lived in fear because I didn’t want to become stranded from home and unable to drive. My problem became considerable worse and it started to affect my focus, concentration and sleep. I was self-medicating with 8 Advil and 4 Excedrin a day just to function for work and I had no energy to attend the gym. I heard about Dr. McGraw through a patient referral and decided to conquer my fear of the chiropractor. I called and they were able to fit me in the very same day! Upon meeting Dr. McGraw I held nothing back and told him I thought I was losing my mind and he was my last resort. I described in detail my head pain and my overwhelming fear of him and his services. He assured me that he could help and he wouldn’t stop treating me until my headaches subsided and boy did he live up to his word! I have not experienced a migraine in over 8 months but not only that I now have focus; concentration and I started attending Burn Boot Camp. Being migraine free has given me back a quality of life that I thought I would never have again and I owe it all to Dr. McGraw. I’m forever grateful to Dr. McGraw and the awesome staff at Active Care Chiropractic!

I originally went in to see Dr. McGraw about a case of Plantar Fasciitis that had been causing me pain for 3 months. It was also beginning to affect my opposite knee from limping so much. I’ve only been going for a few weeks but I’ve already noticed a significant decrease in pain. His full body approach to healing has shed new light on problems I have with my spine. I’ve gotten relief from leg pain that 3 months of physical therapy was unable to fix. We’ve still got a ways to go but I’m confident that Dr. McGraw and his staff will continue to help me progress to the active lifestyle I’m accustomed to.

I am a runner with piriformis syndrome, ITB irritation and plantar fasciitis that had become progressively worse over time. Things progressed to the point that I couldn’t walk more than a quarter mile without pain and cramping in my low back, glutes and hip. I had read favorable reviews about ART and my doctor recommended Dr. McGraw. After 5 weeks of therapy I can say with confidence that we are making progress! I can move better and have less pain. I am walking again. I am not running yet, but am confident we will get there.

I started going to Active Care Chiropractic when I was suffering with plantar fasciitis. The treatment I received was amazing! I was able to keep doing my activities and in no time my pain was gone! I followed the home instructions and went regularly to get therapy from Dr McGraw. I was very satisfied with my care. I have had other issues as well that Dr McGraw has been able to treat! The office is very pleasant and sends reminders through text messages as well as a phone call! Highly recommend Active Care Chiropractic.

Dr. McGraw recommended D-Hist to me after I had complained about springtime allergies that were affecting my sinuses, especially at night. I was never sold on traditional medicines (Claritin, Zyrtec, etc.) as they had never seemed to help, but after a week on D-hist, I noticed I was breathing easier and sleeping more soundly. D-hist is one of the few allergy medicines that helped alleviate my symptoms without making me drowsy as well.

I’ve been receiving care from Dr. McGraw for a few years now and he is so different from other chiropractors I’ve been to in the past. The active release technique he does has helped me with numerous pulled muscles and tendons from my active lifestyle, all over my body, not just in my neck and back as other doctors simply focused on. He keeps me feeling ready for whatever my next adventure is and his staff is a pleasure to work with. Thank you!

I have been going to Dr. McGraw for about 9 months now for my shoulder and back. My shoulder feels the best it has in years and the maintenance for my back has allowed me to get back to working out full-time pain free! The staff is wonderful, courteous and will assist in helping you find appointment times that work with your busy schedule. I would definitely recommend Active Care chiropractic!

I injured my wrist 3 years ago and have been seeing Dr. McGraw ever since. Using ART techniques, my wrist healed up fast and allowed me to get back to CrossFitting. I currently switched over to Dr. Bradburn at the satellite office across town. Dr. Bradburn has helped me with neck and back pain. The knowledge and expertise at Active Care is the best I have experienced with chiropractic care in Wilmington! Highly recommend.

I am a 68 year old avid tennis player with double knee replacements. I am committed to playing competitive tennis for as long as I can. But as an “older” player, I often experience injuries that basically result from my passion for tennis. Times and time again, Dr. McGraw’s treatment has helped me overcome a number of tennis related injuries. His care and skill, through his use of Active Release Techniques, have kept me on the courts and, consequently, have helped me maintain a decent quality of life. I have referred a number of my tennis friends to Dr. McGraw, and with Dr. McGraw’s help, they too have been able to recover from tennis relates injuries. If you are committed to staying with Active Care through the “Golden Years”, without reservation, I recommend Dr. McGraw and Active Release Therapy.

I went to see Dr. McGraw before my first marathon to make sure I was in tip top shape based on recommendation from a fellow runner. I was expecting my legs to feel better but not only did my legs feel better Dr. McGraw fixed a pinch in my lower back that I had been living with for years. My schedule at work has been hectic and the office has been incredibly flexible and has worked with me to get me in. Definitely a great first experience with a chiropractor!!!

The doctors and staff at Active Care Chiropractic are simply the best! I been a patient of Dr. McGraw’s for over four years, and while I originally came to see him to address symptoms I was experiencing with my hip, his care has evolved as my body has evolved. He and his staff are excellent listeners, and they truly care about my well being and health. The Active Release technique has been very effective in treating my hip problems, and recently I have used laser therapy to address some chronic issues with my ankle, which has also been helpful. I am a 54 year-old sports endurance junkie! I love running, cycling, and swimming, and I ran the Boston Marathon last year and am looking forward to another Boston in 2019. Recently I ran the fastest 1/2 marathon I’ve run in over 20 years! Dr. McGraw and his amazingly invaluable assistant, Amy, help me continue to pursue my athletic adventures. I highly recommend Active Care Chiropractic to anyone living in the Wilmington area; they make you feel like part of the family!
