Phase 1: Care Relief

Many people go to a chiropractor because they are in pain. In this first phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms. Sometimes this will require daily visits, or two to three visits per week for a time.

Most people are under the assumption that if they don’t feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them – that they are healthy. Unfortunately, pain is a very poor indicator of health. In fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced.

For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is also the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition remains.

Phase 2: Corrective Care

Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a persons care. If all that the chiropractor does is to reduce the pain and stop there, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone.

During the correction / restorative phase of your care, you will not have to receive adjustments as often as you did during the first phase of care and, depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches either at the center or at home to help accelerate your healing.

Do not be discouraged if you have mild flare-ups in your symptoms on occasion. This is normal. Flare-ups are bound to occur during this phase because your body has not fully healed. Depending on the severity of your injury or condition and how long you have been suffering from it, this phase of your care may last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Once your body has fully healed, routine chiropractic care can help ensure that your physical problems do not return, and keep your body in optimal condition. Just like continuing an exercise program and eating well in order to sustain the benefits of exercise and proper diet, it is necessary to continue chiropractic care to ensure the health of your musculoskeletal system.

When you make routine chiropractic care a part of your lifestyle, you avoid many of the aches and pains that so many people suffer through, your joints will last longer and you will be able to engage in more of the activities you love.

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!

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.

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 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!

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!

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!
