Chiropractic can help the condition of your body and could improve your sick state, and lift you to a new, improved state of improved health and wellness for those who have no visible serious health concerns. Dr. Forbess has helped many painful conditions affecting the back, neck, as well as conditions affecting other joints including the jaw, shoulders, arms, wrist, hands, hips, knees, ankles, and feet. He only treats an area if he feels chiropractic treatment will help improve your condition.
Some specific conditions Dr.Forbess has had particularly high levels of success include headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, scoliosis, fibromyalgia, tennis elbow, knee injuries, foot pain (plantar fasciitis), as well as more common back pain, neck pain, and headaches.
Dr. Forbess has found cold lasers to be of help in many conditions not easily helped by other therapies. He also uses, when indicated, other therapies such as ultrasound, electric stimulation, traction, trigger point therapy, and massage.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold Laser therapy helps a wide array of problems and conditions. It is helpful especially in carpal tunnel syndrome and a variety of painful conditions. Laser light therapy has been found to be antibacterial and antiviral, so it may help with certain skin conditions.
This utilizes readings from meridian points primarily on the hands and feet of the individual involved, that help us to determine the energetics of the organs. Based on the readings, appropriate nutrition can be found that will balance these organs, allowing us to be more specific about what will or will not help the body. The testing is painless and very informative.
Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Children have spines too! Many common pediatric conditions such as frequent ear infections and colic have responded to chiropractic care. Chiropractic care is safe for infants and children. We use appropriate pediatric chiropractic techniques.
Among my own four children, three have had ear infections and one had colic. All responded favorably with minutes to hours of treatment, without medication. Many children respond more quickly than adults, as the problems have not usually been present very long. Outside of my family, the youngest person seen in my office so far is 4 days old.
Recently I had a 7-year-old patient that had been diagnosed with “growing pains” since 2 years old. The patient had been on pain medication due to related pain. When evaluated, we found a chiropractic problem, and within a matter of weeks of care, growing pains were improved and resolved.
Chiropractic and Older Adults
Older individuals benefit from chiropractic. The oldest patients seen in our office have been in their 90’s. Gentle chiropractic treatment is utilized.
