Learn More about Us
“Dr. Gesicki is a professional, kind, and attentive doctor. I began seeing Dr. Gesicki for chiropractic care for my back, neck, and shoulders. She also did acupuncture to help relieve me of my migraines, and after some time I was able to stop my preventative medication. Dr. Gesicki also provided prenatal care and support during my pregnancy. She provided exercises and overall body care. Once the baby was delivered she encapsulated my placenta, which was great to help prevent the baby blues. She did a home visit to deliver my encapsulated placenta as well as she provided an acupuncture treatment to help with postpartum care. Dr. Gesicki has been an important part of my wellness, I’m grateful for her caring spirit and heart.”

In addition to her training in pediatric and prenatal care, Dr. Forsgren's chiropractic education has been informed by the McKenzie Institute, Motion Palpation Institute, and the Prague School’s Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization. The education from these fine institutions has provided Dr. Forsgren with approaches proven to be effective and safe for patients of all ages, from infants to the geriatric population and everyone in between.
Dr. Forsgren's interest in whole health for the whole family has led her to post-graduate training in Functional Medicine.
