FOUNDER / DC
After traveling from coast to coast, Dr. Michael Graybar has been a North Carolina resident almost 30 years. He grew up in East Brunswick, New Jersey and attended St. Joseph's High School in Metuchen. Dr. Graybar graduated from The University of Scranton in May 1991 with a B.S. in Biology. While at the university, he played soccer and captained the Scranton Royals to a #12 National Ranking in Men's Soccer, Division III during his senior year. After graduation, he attended the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic (L.A.C.C.) and graduated with Dean's List Honors in December 1994. Dr. Graybar began his chiropractic practice in Wilmington, North Carolina in 1995 and is an active member of the North Carolina Chiropractic State Association.
Family, Faith, and Friends are a staple of the Graybar Family. Dr. Graybar met his wife Tracey while he was in Chiropractic School in Los Angeles and got married the following year. Officially, there are 7 children for the Graybar’s. Tyler, Sarah, Ryan, Kenny, Madison, Jack, and CJ. The older six have all graduated from high school and many have graduated from colleges. As of March 2023, our son Jack has enlisted with the US ARMY and the family couldn’t be more Proud.
Athletics and Sports remain a huge part of our family. Dr. Graybar served as the head coach for Wallace Rose Hill Men’s Soccer from 2009-2918. During this time, “Coach Graybar” would lead the bulldogs to state championship in 1A soccer in 2013, 2014 and 2016.
These are Dr. Graybar’s comments on his chiropractic graduate work: “My chiropractic education in Los Angeles was fantastic! It was an amazing experience spending four years of my life in L.A., but I am glad to be back on the East Coast. I always get asked about my education and the truth is the chiropractic curriculum is almost a mirror image to a Medical University during the first two years of schooling. The major difference occurs in the third year when the focus shifts to “chiropractic holistic philosophy and spinal manipulation” instead of pharmaceuticals-drug therapy. This was the favorite part of my entire education. I got to understand the cause and effect of “health and wellness” rather than to numbing or masking the symptoms with medications. L.A.C.C. prepared me to be the “complete doctor” and this is the concept I try to bring into the clinical setting every day.
Dr. Graybar is in great standing with the North Carolina Chiropractic Association and is presently completing his fellowship with his son, Ryan (presently a third-year student @ Sherman Chiropractic) in Pediatrics. This is a two-year fellowship offered through International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). “I am excited to expand the degree and enhance the health of our community.
