McGrath Chiropractic helped me with my nerve pain!

In August, 2006, I was diagnosed with a disc protrusion of my L5 vertebrae and could barely remain upright. This condition was accompanied by constant sciatic nerve pain. The pain was so severe that I thought surgery was the only alternative.

However, to my delight, just 10 weeks after my initial visit and consultation at McGrath Chiropractic, the pain has subsided tremendously and I have experienced a significant increase in strength. The doctors prescribed a comprehensive approach to my recovery which includes a combination of physical therapy, cold laser therapy, electronic stimulation, traction, therapeutic massage, and chiropractic care.

These doctors utilize the most advanced medical technology and techniques available in the field of chiropractic while incorporating proven fundamental methodologies. The staff at McGrath Chiropractic is courteous and professional. The treatment that I have received from McGrath Chiropractic has been nothing less than “World Class!”

Dr. McGrath is amazing, he has the magic touch. I drive 140 miles for one of his treatments. He approaches the whole body and not just one area, which is what I like and need. Hood River is very fortunate to have a Chiropractic Dr. like McGrath.

If I could give Dr. McGrath a 10 out of 5, I would! I initially was hesitant to try his services due to the amount of pain I was in. I didn't believe anyone could help me! How wrong I was!! Not only is he thorough but he's gentle and accommodating to each person's individual needs. You are definitely more than just a patient to this Doctor. I cannot recommend his office strenuously enough! Try it, you'll love it!
