Active Care – A Form of Rehabilitation

Active care is a form of rehabilitation designed specifically for each patient to achieve balance in their bodies by facilitating under-active muscles and achieving efficient movement patterns.

We work with patients to design a program that works with their needs as well as their lifestyle to make sure that the at home exercises and stretches are easily integrated into their daily routines.

A combination of strength, stability, mobility, and flexibility training are used to achieve muscular balance during the active care sessions. Once you’ve gotten to the active care stage of your treatment plan, you will be taught stretches and strengthening exercises during your appointments and also be given easy to follow take home sheets.

Many of the exercises we teach do not require any tools at all so they are easy to do both at home or your office.  We always say that similar to wearing a retainer after braces are removed, active care stabilizes the progress we’ve had thus far to decrease the chance of recurrence.

Active Care Facts

  • Active care is for everyone! From marathon runners looking to up their performance to someone looking to get their range of motion back after years of sitting at a computer for work.
  • Some people like to bring a change of clothes for active care but it’s not necessary. As long as you feel comfortable in what you have on we’ll be just fine.
  • Benefits patients see from active care include decreased pain, increased flexibility and the knowledge of preventative steps to do on their own.
  • The tools that we use in active care, like foam rollers, stretch out straps and more, are all available for purchase in office if you would like to have them at home.

I quickly felt comfortable here, and they clearly valued my time. I’ve enjoyed my interactions with each member of the staff, and extracted a lot of value from my time spent at AHC.

My treatment at Absolute made it possible for me to resume my daily life. The ease of scheduling appointments, no wait time, professional, friendly and knowledgeable staff provided the ongoing sense of possibility that ‘every little thing was going to be alright.’ And so it has. I participated in my treatment and am back to enjoying all my physical activities. The combination of treatment with TENS and active care gave me the opportunity to regain my health. THANK YOU!

Per the statement I made in preceding box: I do and will continue to recommend Absolute Health Chiropractic to anyone who is looking for a chiropractor. The team is outstanding!

I have been visiting the office for monthly maintenance for 3 years +. It’s always fast and very thorough and I feel tremendous when I leave the office. It’s been amazing preventative back therapy. When I slack with my own routine and “throw out” my back, the recovery is very quick by making a couple of adjustments in that week.

I wish I still lived in Portland so I could continue coming here.

Verified Reviewer July 20, 2016

I called to get an appointment and they were able to get me in within 24 hours. I am so happy to have a team that cares for and supports their patients.

The advantage to the Clinic is the range of talent in the office. While I like to stay with one Chiropractor, I know I can see someone else as well if they are unavailable. All three of us in my family go to the Clinic. I have recommended the Clinic to friends and co-workers.

Absolute Health Chiropractic has been flexible and attentive to my needs for the past three years. They treat you with respect and are very personable. They always make me feel comfortable and welcome, and my body loves it too!

Absolute Health provides professional, comprehensive and therapeutic care. I became an active participant in my care and have reaped the benefits of the services provided.

Absolute Health Chiropractic is a welcoming and caring office that provides phenomenal service. I am able to get through each day without pain and with mindfulness towards my body. The active care inspired me to maintain my health, the adjustments help release tension, stim helps to slow down and sooth. Also the Aline inserts make a huge difference! I have worn all kinds of inserts over the years and nothing compares to these. They are affordable, comfortable, and provide unbelievable support. I wear them in every shoe and wish I had had them sooner. Thank you!

Everyone at Absolute Health Chiropractic is absolutely lovely to talk to and shows interest in not only my well-being but me in general. I am so glad that I chose Absolute Health as my chiropractic clinic!

Dr. Morrisroe and the entire staff at Absolute Health Chiropractic Clinic are awesome. Everyone is very knowledgeable, explains everything in great detail, and takes the needed time to ensure great care. Most of my aches and pains are gone, and those that are left will no doubt be gone soon! I’d recommend Dr. Morrisroe and AHCC to anyone that has a need to see a chiropractor. No need to look elsewhere!

Absolute Health Chiropractic is simply the best. From the second you arrive, you feel welcome and like you have been a patient there for ever. The entire staff is friendly and so smart, giving you the exact care you need. So glad I found them and I will continue visits as long as necessary – or forever.

Dr. Cait and the staff of AHC are incredible! Not only is everyone very personable, they are also very knowledgeable and helpful. Not only did Dr. Cait and her staff help with my back issues, but they also gave me “active care” – exercises I can do at home that keep me feeling good! As busy as the office is, you never feel rushed, and everyone takes their time listening and explaining. A great experience and totally recommend!

Absolute Health Chiropractic and Dr. Cait have greatly helped with the migraines I suffer from. Before I started seeing Dr. Cait, I was suffering from migraines 15+ days a month. Now, with regular chiropractic care, I’m down to one migraine every 6-8 weeks. I love everything that they do there. And will keep coming back for a long time!

I have been a client of Absolute Health Care Chiropractic for many years. I find that regular adjustments help me avoid more serious back and joint problems. This office has always been responsive to my needs and professional in its high quality chiropractic care.
