Healing Above All: Dr. Ryan Morningstar’s Commitment to Faith, Family, and Chiropractic Excellence

Nestled within our community, Above All Chiropractic Center emerges as a sanctuary of healing, guided by the compassionate hands of Dr. Ryan Morningstar. Celebrating a decade of service, Dr. Morningstar’s practice is a testament to his unwavering commitment to faith, family, and the transformative power of chiropractic care.

A Calling Rooted in Personal Experience

Dr. Morningstar’s chiropractic journey began in his middle school years. As a young boy, Ryan experienced persistent back issues that were dismissed as “growing pains.” The turning point came when he visited a chiropractor, experiencing relief that charted the course of his future. “I saw people coming in and out of his office, and it just seemed like an upbeat, positive place where he was helping people,” Dr. Morningstar reflects. This early encounter with chiropractic care ignited a passion that would define his career.

Above All Chiropractic: A Name with Meaning

The process of naming his practice was a deeply personal journey for Dr. Morningstar. Not only did he want the name to appear first in any search, but he knew that it needed to be rooted in his fundamental beliefs. “What do we hold above all?” was a question he and his wife asked countless times. The answer was clear: faith, family, and chiropractic excellence, but how could they convey that in a name? One day it clicked that “Above All” embodied all of those beliefs, and so Above All Chiropractic Center was born. This name laid the foundation for every aspect of his practice going forward.

The Gonstead Method: A Dedication to Precision

Dr. Morningstar adheres to the Gonstead method of chiropractic care which focuses on precision by using postural X-rays to visualize the structure of a patient’s spine and a nervoscope to detect inflammation and nerve pressure. This technique ensures that only the necessary areas of the spine are treated, avoiding unnecessary manipulation. “We’re adjusting from behind forward, actually lifting and setting the joint,” Dr. Morningstar explains, highlighting the method’s meticulous nature.

Faith and Healing Under One Roof

One thing that’s clear the moment you walk through the door to Above All Chiropractic Center is that it reflects Dr. Morningstar’s Faith. It’s a space where Christian values are woven into the fabric of the practice. From playing Christian music to incorporating faith-based perspectives on the body’s design, the clinic is a haven for those seeking solace in their healing journey. “We decided up front that we were not going to be shy about our faith.  That’s who we are, and we’ll build our office the way we want to build it and serve the people who want to be served here,” says Dr. Morningstar. “We’re creating a positive space for people to feel loved, appreciated, and cared for.”

Family First: Balancing Professional and Personal Life

Dr. Morningstar’s dedication to his family is evident in every facet of Above All Chiropractic Center, from its very name to its day-to-day operations.  By thoughtfully setting the clinic’s hours, he guarantees quality moments with his loved ones, embodying his deep-seated belief in family first. “When I’m here, I’m all in. But I value my family time,” he candidly shares. It’s a sentiment that resonates deeply with his patients and team. Remarkably, despite the hundreds of individuals seeking his care each week, Dr. Morningstar ensures that every patient feels valued and prioritized during their visit. This unique blend of personal attention amidst a bustling schedule showcases his professional expertise and extraordinary ability to balance widespread healing with personal connection.


Facing Challenges and Embracing Growth

Establishing a practice straight out of chiropractic school presented many challenges, from educating patients about the benefits of chiropractic care to navigating financial hurdles. However, Dr. Morningstar’s focus on patient care and his commitment to the Gonstead method laid the foundation for his success. From the outset, Dr. Morningstar made a conscious decision to concentrate solely on providing genuine patient care, steering clear of any distractions and lucrative offers that promised quick financial gains. “When you forget about the financial component and focus on genuinely caring for people, the finances will naturally follow,” Dr. Morningstar believes. As Dr. Morningstar looks to the future, he plans to expand by bringing on an associate to serve more families in the community. He has a vision of making chiropractic care accessible to as many people as possible, from the tiniest of infants to people wanting to make the most of their remaining years.

A Beacon of Hope and Healing

Dr. Morningstar’s story is one of perseverance, faith, and dedication to serving others. Above All Chiropractic Center stands as a beacon of hope for those in pain, offering a unique blend of chiropractic care infused with compassion and grounded in faith. As Dr. Morningstar looks to the future, his journey continues to inspire and heal, one adjustment at a time.
