Learn about this provider

Dr. Forgeron's Care Philosophy

The nervous system is the master system of the human body. The brain and spinal cord, or central nervous system is vitally important to life, and is surrounded and protected by the skull and vertebral column. Optimal postural alignment of the skeletal structure is important to overall nervous system functioning. As a chiropractor, I detect and correct postural asymmetries and give patient education regarding health and wellness lifestyle choices.

Dr. Forgeron says...

I was one of the first chiropractors in the country to be on a HMO panel.  I saw a variety of primary care cases.  Cases with complicating factors were properly co-managed with my medical director, the late M. Eisenstein, MD, JD, MPH

I was also one of the first chiropractors in the country to be on staff at a premier orthopaedic practice.  As part of the affiliation with that group practice, was also granted staff privilege at St. Alexius Hospital in Hoffman Estates, IL. 

Patients under my care diagnosed with cancers have been referred to oncology specialists for evaluation and management.  One patient with lower back pain was properly diagnosed with a Helicobacter Pylori infection and referred to a GI specialist for proper evaluation and management. 

Patients present to my office most often with neck and back pain.  It is my responsibility to determine if I can help that patient or refer for specialty medical care.  In the neuromuscular realm, I have a 98% patient satisfaction rate documented by outcome assessment questionnaires.  When a case is systemic in nature, I offer the natural approach education, and do due diligence and refer to appropriate medical specialists. 

 

Dr. Forgeron says...

I offer three types of care: 

  1. Relief Care - insurance based to decrease pain, muscle spasms, inflammation, and increase ranges of motion and muscle strength.
  2. Corrective Care - non-insurance based postural correction skeletal adjustments and posture based mirror image exercises.  For additional information, visit http://www.idealspine.com 
  3. Wellness Care - non-insurance based elective care.  Patients come in periodically to have a spinal check-up and adjustment.  Emphasis on home therapy exercises and healthy lifestyle coaching.
