I started at McKinley Chiro a little over a month ago. I woke up one morning for work and I was in excruciating pain (could barely put my shoes on... I'm an active 24 year old firefighter). I was reluctant to see a chiropractor because of the things my peers--who have probably never been seen by a chiropractor--would tell me. Dr. McKinley and his staff took me under their wing, and since then they have demonstrated how truly beneficial chiropractic adjustments are. In the short time I have been coming into McKinley Chiro, my back feels better and continues to improve. My mobility is the best it has been in a long time. The staff is so kind. They can schedule your appointments to fit your schedule. I always leave McKinley with a positive outlook!read more
Dr McKinley has changed my life! I was always in pain opioid dependent and was unable to do normal tasks due to living in pain and just feeling bad all the way around. I have been going to his practice for a little over 3months now and he has transformed my life! I no longer take a bunch of pills to feel better . With his adjustments , techniques and different programs available, I feel really good about myself not only physically but mentally as well. I no longer suffer from pain like before! I thank God for allowing me get better and to Dr McKinley who has truly been an angel and has helped me in my healing journey to living a better healthier blessed life! I recommend him to everyone ! He is top notch! Thank you Dr McKinley from the bottom of my heart ! 😂❤️🙏read more
How do I start? I had a really — in my opinion — severe case of neuropathy where at my peak I was just feeling like complete and utter doo-doo. I didn’t know what was happening to me. Symptoms included tingling and prickling in the chest, arms and legs. I couldn’t go through out the day without it just overpowering me and keeping me from going about my business. It only got worse at night, which caused me to fear even trying to go to bed.
So, naturally I started booking appointments left and right that included getting a physical, acupuncture, chest x-rays, and blood work. I was basically told nothing was wrong with me. That it could just be “anxiety”. But, one day, like a miracle, an ad popped up on social media for the McKinley Family Chiropractic that listed what they specialize in. This included the symptoms that had been occurring to me.
Once I did my consultation with Dr. Heath McKinley, I almost cried. Because he knew EXACTLY what I was going through. He almost took the words out of my mouth as he started going over what my body was experiencing. He explained the functions of the nervous system and how the body is all one big circuit. I was feeling total relief that I knew I had come to the right place.
Fast forward past several appointments and body adjustments, and all I can say is I feel 95% better. I say that because I technically still have several appointments left in my 3-month adjustment plan that I am going to fulfill. However, that 95% is wayyy better than when I was at my peak state of discomfort. I have been “tingle free” the past several days now, and even before that the symptoms were dwindling.
As I write this review, I’ve completed a little over a month of seeing the awesome and wise Dr. McKinley, and of course Dr. Ray, who by the way has enlightened me with his love of Star Wars while also making the adjustments to my body on days Dr. McKinley needs to spread the love to other clients. I’m in good hands either way, and I recommend McKinley Family Chiropractic if you’re in need of some proper body tuning, along with welcoming and knowledgable professionals! Not to mention their staff who will always greet you and “add energy to your day“! 😁
P.S. Don’t forget to go for those 45 minute to 1 hour walks everyday! 🚶🏽♂️🚶🏽♀️read more
Normally I'm the one who reads reviews, not writes one. But I'm hoping that this reaches someone like me. Someone who puts their problems to the side to "deal with it later". I have been dealing with back issues for YEARS. I have OK days and then theres really horrible days. Days where I can barely walk straight or even show up to work. I've tried physical therapy and failed it. I've seen specialists who keep recommending me more physical therapy or pain management. My Doctors kept prescribing me more medication than I can count. I just felt like it was time for me to give up hope. One day I'm scrolling through my Facebook news feed and happen to come across this place. I see the picture and notice a girl I went to high school with was standing in it. I sent her a message and set up an appointment. After just one adjustment I felt different. I felt like I was floating, standing tall. I felt "hopeful". Dr McKinley and Dr Ray are AMAZING! In a matter of a month the pain I went to see them for became a memory. I can sleep better, and my husband doesnt have to worry about me moving all over the bed to find my comfort spot ;). I will continue to work with McKinley Family Chiropractic for as long as I can. Because without them, I would be a 34 year old women with a 80 year old body.read more
Dr. McKinley came strongly recommended by our birth class instructor(Bradley Method). I was 31 weeks in my pregnancy when we found out that the baby was in breech position. After having only completed 5 sessions with Dr. McKinley, he was able to successfully turn our baby in the right position using the Webster Method! He is very good at what he does, personable, takes the time to educate me and my husband and is very efficient! We are very thankful to have found him! I’m still going in for treatment in order to maintain the baby’s position and to keep muscles relaxed for a smooth and healthy pregnancy/delivery! And now, my husband is also looking forward to being treated as well ;)read more
I'd been experiencing horrid lower back pain throughout the start of my pregnancy. I asked my OB at my 20 week check up for possible remedies and he told me that the only chiropractor he'd trust is Dr. McKinley. I've been seeing Dr. McKinley for a couple of months now, and my pain level has decreased from an 8 to a 2 on a good day, 3 on a bad. I cannot speak highly enough of him and it also helps that all the staff are wonderful. I'm moving with much more ease now at 35 weeks than I did when I met him at 20 weeks. Highly recommend.read more
The whole staff is very friendly and helpful! I’ve only been going here for a few weeks and even after the first week I felt so much better! I’ve been in discomfort for years due to previous sports injuries and in the short time I’ve been here, there is already so much improvement.read more
My wife went in to correct lower back pain along with a host of additional issues that have improved her quality of life. I started going as well because of upper back pain and the treatment has greatly improved my sleep and overall comfort. I’m very grateful to Dr. McKinley and Dr. Ray and would certainly recommend their services.read more
MY chiropractors! I started visiting the office soon after it opened on Irving Park. They all smile & take care of me, 75-yr-old woman, bad posture forever, never able to do a sit-up. I count on them day-to-day, for the random pain & after I ran my car into a ditch (worst pain & incapacitation of my life), Dr McKinley reassured me I would be able to take my planned trip to Europe. I did. I am a welcomed individual there--altho' they would like me to understand the science of an adjustment, it's been long accepted that I come for the magic.read more
I am putting this review as a thank you to the doctors and staff of McKinley Chiropractic Care. I was giving up on hopes that my arm and shoulder would ever be normal again. Apart from feeling physically great after the adjustments, I feel great mentally as well. The staff treat you like family and that's just as important.read more
I lived with neck and shoulder pain that led to frequent headaches for as long as I can remember. I also injured my shoulder and could no longer do yoga. After 7 months of terrible pain, my coworker suggested I visit this chiropractor. Since then, my health has significantly improved. I'm not in pain every day, my shoulder injury has healed quite well, I sleep better, and my mood has improved. The staff members are all welcoming, friendly, and helpful. The 2 chiropractors I see there are both very knowledgeable about the impacts of the nervous system on your overall well-being, and they give great tips on how to improve your life even more on your own. I would highly recommend this place to improve your health. Life isn't as difficult anymore.read more
Came in with pretty bad back pain as many firefighters deal with, and after three weeks of going consistently I noticed a huge difference. Almost no pain anymore and also sleeping much better with no discomfort! These guys know what they’re doing and the entire staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!read more
All of the staff at McKinley are super awesome and professional. I have been getting adjustments from Dr Ray and Dr Mckinley for the past 3 years and have never felt better! It is very easy to get an appointment and they have a good range of hours open. Highly recommend!read more
McKinley Family Chiropractic has helped me in so many ways. My health, energy, and mindful attention to nutrition and body have all been impacted by the wonderful people at McKinley. I highly recommend this practice to anyone seeking a individual chiropractor and/or a prenatal chiro.
I saw Dr. McKinley all through my pregnancy and ever since my son was born, we all go together. My son is almost 2 and loves to get adjusted and feels so comfortable with everyone at McKinley. Thank you for all you do for our family!read more

Back in the summer of 2018 I needed relief from intense back pain after having moved a piece of furniture. A friend recommended McKinley Chiropratic. I had never been to a chiropractor before but was desperate. Of course I had an idea of what it would be like. WOW! This was not what I expected. On that particular summer Saturday morning the place was swarming with families, kids and smoothie giveaways. My treatment took place in the middle of a beautifully comfortable and open environment filled with the sounds of happy families. My follow up visits were just as comfortable and effective but a little quieter without the smoothie giveaways. Since then my only regret is that I didn’t start coming here years ago!read more
The doctors at McKinley Family Chiropractic saved so many important aspects of my life. I was a runner barely making 2 mile runs, pushing through pain, and riding my motorcycle for nothing more than 1 hour because of the flaring sciatica pain I had been experiencing for 5 years. Enough was enough. I was 33 and wanting more out of my activities. Two weeks with 6 adjustments later and I was a completely different person. Happier because the constant pain and discomfort was mostly gone. Running recovery is immensely improved and I took my longest ride this summer. I can't say enough about the doctors and lovely back-office staff. They really are like a family. ❤️🙂read more
Visiting McKinley Chiropractic is part of my wellness routine. I opt for their wellness package which allows me to afford to go regularly whether I think I need it or not. That keeps me healthy along with eating right. They also give great hugs and truly care about their patients. Highly recommended for those of you who want to be proactive about health and wellness.read more
As a professional healthcare provider and patient who is interested in more than just having chiropractic adjustments, I feel I have found excellent holistic care. The staff and doctors listen well, treat you individually, compassionately and professionally. Not only do they treat family members of all ages but treat you as if you are part of their family. Dr. McKinley has developed a caring team around him which is reflective of his leadership and personal interest for the benefit and health of others.read more
I was battling neck pain for years and finally went here- I was so happy to feel so taken care of! The doctors were really thoughtful in detailing what I needed and each adjustment was wonderful! I will continue going here for maintenance- such a wonderful and friendly staff.read more

A friend recommended Dr. McKinley. I felt as though my nerves were on fire. Couldn’t sleep. Legs hurt. Joints hurt. Dr. McKinley explained everything he was going to do. He told me after he took a few x-rays he would be able to tell me what he could and could not fix. I’ve now had three appointments with him. I’m already sleeping better. No more lower back pain. Joints don’t hurt. Skin no longer on fire. I still have a couple major spots that he is working on but I’m already way better than I was. He’s simply the best! And his staff is wonderful and kind. Never had to wait. The best.read more
I have had a great experience with McKinley Family Chiropractor. It’s been about 2 months since my first appointment and right now I already feel the results such as better posture and better sleeping. In my opinion, their method of having consistently appointments is very helpful to get your body used to be aligned. I am glad I found them.read more
I was hesitant on seeing a Chiropractor. However, after giving birth to my 3 month old daughter I needed some adjustment in my back. Finally sleeping better and healing. Extremely professional and love getting updates of my upcoming appointments.read more
I’ve been going to McKinley Family Chiropractic for a few months now and I’ve become such a big fan. I had a bad experience with a chiropractor in the past and was a a bit nervous to see another chiropractor, but knew it would help in the long run. During my first appointment, Dr. Matt made me feel so comfortable. I immediately knew this was going to be much different than my past experiences, and was so excited to start care. Everyone at the office is so welcoming and helpful. It’s only been a couple of months, but I am really feeling so much better all around. I originally went in because my neck was in pain all the time. I didn’t even realize how much the rest of my body was being affected until things stopped hurting every day. I’m truly grateful for the care, service, compassion, and answers I’ve received here. Highly recommend for anyone even thinking about starting chiropractic care. Make a positive change in your life and start feeling better! Thanks Dr. Matt and Dr. McKinley!read more
Dr. McKinley and his team are top notch! We originally started to see him for my 4 month old son when he was having sleep issues. From the very first treatment, he loved it! They are so gentle, kind and loving towards him he smiles when we walk in because he knows where we are. Seeing the results we were getting for my son, I became a patient. Dr. McKinley has been able to help my alignment since pregnancy and increase my milk production for breastfeeding. All in all highly recommend the team!read more
I have had a great experience with McKinley Chiropractic! I came in due to shoulder issues and have been extremely happy with the work to get my shoulder and the rest of my body back on track.

I was a bit nervous beginning my healing journey at McKinley Family Chiropractor. After my adjustments, my body is improving especially in my gate. Doctors Matt & Heath have worked hard in helping me maintain excellent progress. Chelli makes you feel welcomed as soon as you walk in.

Dr. McKinley has done an amazing job for myself and both my kids! I came in with what I learned to be a pretty bad case of sciatica and within the first 2 weeks of visits my mobility and comfort is %100 percent better! The staff is friendly and inviting. And you really feel like family here! Thanks guys!read more
This is a fantastic place! I’ve been coming regularly with my 10 year old daughter for several months and I couldn’t be happier with the progress we have made with neck pain and headaches. McKinley Family Chiropractic is high quality professional care in a family friendly environment that I would not hesitate recommending to anybody. The staff is friendly and always willing to accommodate our scheduling needs. Dr. McKinley and Dr. Ray rock. Look no further!read more
Best in practice doctors and staff, love this place!! I found McKinley chiropractor about a year ago after doing some research/reviews and have been a client ever since. The reason I decided to see a chiropractor is because I work a lot of long hours on a computer and didn’t feel right – the doctors were able to show me the impact it was having on areas of my body. After working with Dr. McKinley and Dr. Ray for the past year, there is a dramatic and noticeable change in several aspects – stress (work + life), sleep and more energy. I would recommend this place, as I did to my wife.read more
I feel so lucky to have Dr. McKinley and Dr. Ray as my doctors. They are incredible chiropractors and so much more. I changed jobs from working in an office to becoming a yoga teacher and my body went through many changes including throwing out my back twice. I've asked them many tough questions for me and my clients/students. They've helped me physically, emotionally and even philosophically through some really tough times. If you want to improve your health and wellbeing, perhaps even in ways you're not sure how of yet, go to them. You'll be very well taken care of by them and their amazing team. Honestly, just go already. and keep going. No do it. Stop making excuses you only have one body!!!read more
LOVE THIS PLACE! Super friendly and loving staff. The environment is extremely soothing. I feel super at home with my family because everyone here has positive and caring energy. Would definitely recommend (already sent in like 10 of my family members). Also, the background music is always poppin’.read more
I've been a patient for several years. After my first year, I realized my social anxiety was completely gone, and fears of heights and spiders greatly lessened. After being treated during my second pregnancy, I wished I'd started coming during my first! The doctors got me up and around again pretty soon after I had a bulging disc earlier this year, the entire staff going above and beyond helping me in and out of the car when I could barley walk (and also with walking back and forth in the office when I couldn't yet walk around the block). Dr. McKinley and Dr. Ray are miracle workers! They care about their patients while caring for them, and my family and I were blessed to find them.read more
Extremely professional Clinic with two very experienced and knowledgeable Medical doctors who finally I found someone who could relieve a chronic and serious sciatic nerve pain running down both my legs was even unable to bend over or pull my pants up and was able to relieve the pain in a few days. I'm not sure that everyone would have my success but I certainly don't hesitate and recommending them and giving them an opportunity to help you as well like they've helped me George arvanitisread more
I recommended this place. Every time you come in, the workers are always positive. I came here with my back problems. Usually take a months for me to recover. My mom recommended me to McKinley and now, I got better in two weeks, full of energy that I never had since I was in teenage years and sleeping early.read more
Better sleep, less anxiety, more mobility, no allergies, and happier in my body! I came to McKinley Family Chiropractic with neck pain and a severe fear of chiropractors. They listened and treated me with the utmost generosity and compassion, while at the same time, holding me accountable for doing the same for myself. After my first few sessions, I noticed a significant difference. I've now been going to McKinley Family Chiropractic for over a year and am still experiencing the benefits. My neck, back, and knees feel great. I'm sleeping better. I have less anxiety and I actually feel happier. Also... the allergies. So weird. They're just gone! I could not recommend this place more. Amazing doctors, amazing staff, amazing practice. Thank you for helping me so much!!read more
What a well run office with amazing staff. I came in October ‘18 barely able to walk because of a back injury with tears of pain rolling down my face based on a recommendation from my wife. I had never been as unstable and in as much pain as this and I had a golf trip scheduled in 10 days. Even in the condition I was in, Dr. McKinley assured me that I’d be able to go on my trip and play. While I wasn’t 100% confident, he was and I went in the trip pain free. He is a magic man and I’m continuing treatment today to prevent that awful injury from happening again. High praise to Dr. McKinley and his staff!read more
I have been going to McKinley Chiropractic for years now and I continue to do so because of the high level of treatment given to me. Both Dr. McKinley and Dr. Ray care very much for their patients.

I highly recommend McKinley Family Chiropractic. The staff is friendly and Dr. McKinley and Dr. Ray are amazing! I used to have a lot of tension and neck/back pain but after going through my wellness plan, I'm very happy with the results. Most of the tension has been relieved and I'm no longer constantly in pain. I've also noticed improved energy levels and much better sleep!read more
I started my treatment about a month and a half ago. I was in pain every single day and thought that it was my normal. After a thorough assessment, Dr. Ray and Dr. McKinley started their treatment which consisted of adjustments and alignments. Within the first week I was able to feel much better. The pain on my neck and shoulder blades diminished and I started feeling more positive, healthier. I have become more mindful of my body. McKinley Family Chiropractic has a very welcoming environment with an awesome staff. They radiate an attitude that you take charge of your own health and by guiding you they just activate your body’s innate ability to heal itself. Thank you McKinley Family Chiropractic!read more
The doctors and staff at McKinley Family Chiropractic are incredibly knowledgeable, kind, and caring.

I've been a patient at McKinley Chiropractic since 2014. I first came here due to sciatic nerve pain. I did the recommended treatment plan they suggested and it was amazing! Dr. Ray totally saved me! During that time, Dr. McKinley holds a lot of free educational workshops. I found myself in awe at some of these and intrigued to learn more about my body.
Before coming here, I would literally get sick every 3-4 months, and my colds would last WEEKS. It was awful. Dr. McKinley will educate you on your immune system, and ways to actually build it up, and do its job. I completely stopped taking over the counter medicine whenever I got sick, and let my body fight it. Since doing that, I rarely get sick anymore, and when I do, it doesn't last very long. A few good nights of sleep, water, and chicken soup, and I'm good to go.
So why come back here after the treatment plan was completed? Because Dr. McKinley and Dr. Ray don't just treat back pain, they treat many other issues. My previous job got in the way of me coming regularly for a few months, but now I am on a normal schedule. I went to a Podiatrist last week because I was having such horrible heel pain. This doctor wanted to give me a cortisone shot and prescribe 1000mg ibuprofen. I declined both. I messaged Dr. M and asked for his input, and let me know he treats this as well. I came in the same night he messaged me back! On top of my awful heel pain, I have horrible insomnia, menstrual cramps, and was starting to get headaches pretty frequently.
After my first adjustment in a little while, I slept amazingly! The second night? I passed out at 8:30pm. My body just needed rest, and was able to finally get it because of chiropractic adjustments. Also my stress level was an immediate change. I felt very relaxed, and able to handle stress better. My heel pain has significantly gotten better, but more importantly, my mobility in my ankle is back to normal. Just because you don't have "back" pain, doesn't mean you don't need Chiropractic care. If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, call this practice.
And most importantly, if you don't want to be dependent on medications, Dr. McKinley's office will be your first and only stop.read more
I've been coming to McKinley Family Chiro for a few months now and my body feels great. My recovery is a lot better after an intense workout or 90mins of soccer. I wake up less tired and I can sleep the whole night without being restless!
The vibe and atmosphere in the office will really boost your day! Doctor McKinley and Doctor Ray are fantastic! They also do an awesome detox program which helped cleaned all the bad toxins and feel great!! The whole family comes!!
If your thinking about starting to be healthy and looking after your body, start with a visit to The practice!
Here we have the little one getting adjusted for the first time with the goal of helping her inmune system get better!! Think Chiro for kids!!read more
