Dr. Hargraves knows firsthand the benefits that Chiropractic care can provide. As a child growing up he participated in many sports and never thought twice about pain during a rough and tumble childhood that included falling out of trees and getting mowed down on the playing fields by the 'big kids'. Despite always being the youngest and smallest kid on the block, Dr. Hargraves did eventually grow to his present height of 6'5' and became an All -American Athlete in college. From his athletic training, Dr. Hargraves learned to ignore pain and to keep going no matter what.
Unfortunately, as happens to alot of us, after graduating college, getting married, and having two kids, Dr. Hargraves finally hit a challenge that no amount of discipline or willpower could overcome. One day, while helping to carry a big screen tv, the tv was dropped. Dr. Hargraves' resulting back injury defied every medical doctor and all pain medication. Sleeping, working, and even playing with his kids seemed impossible. Out of sheer desperation, in an effort to avoid surgery, Dr. Hargraves finally took the advice of a friend and went to see a Chiropractor.
The rest is history. Dr. Hargraves, D.C. recovered so well, and so completely, without surgery, he decided to become a Chiropractor himself, so he too, could help other people get out of pain. Now he sees people at Outer Banks Chiropractic in Nags Head for help with chronic pain, car accident and work injuries, backache and shoulder and arm pain, just to name a few. Once Dr. Hargraves helps patients get out of pain, it is his privilege to continue seeing patients to help them maintain their health and wellness and help prevent future problems.
