Dr. Michael Forbes has been operating a well-respected chiropractic center in New Hampshire for over 14 years and has helped thousands of patients and families lead a healthier, more comfortable and productive life.
“Dr. Mike”, as his patients affectionately call him, was born and raised in Dover, NH and decided to come back to his roots to open his chiropractic center back in 1998. Ironically, his practice is directly across the street from the Dover Ice Arena where he was the very first skater at the age of 3. Dr. Mike started experiencing mid-back pain when he was only 12 years old. After numerous tests and countless medications over the span of 4 years he was recommended to wear a back brace 23 hours a day for 9 months. After being cleared from the brace, his condition did not change. While in the middle of his senior year in high school, a friend “dragged” him to a chiropractor. He claims that he had never even heard the word “chiropractor” before then. On that day, at the age of 17, Dr. Mike’s life would be changed forever. He received his first chiropractic “adjustment” and his pain was immediately relieved for the first time in 5 years. Since that day, Dr. Mike’s mission is to change the lives of others by teaching them how to think differently about their health and educating the community on the importance of spinal hygiene. His purpose is to adjust as many families as he possibly can through natural chiropractic care. Even though he had an amazing first experience with chiropractic and witnesses astonishing results it in his office on a daily basis, Dr. Mike wants his patients and community to understand that chiropractic care is a vital component to living a healthy lifestyle instead of the treatment of symptoms, sickness and disease.
After completing his pre-chiropractic studies at Plymouth State University and the University of New Hampshire, Dr. Mike completed is formal education at the “Fountainhead” of chiropractic, Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA receiving a Doctorate of Chiropractic. Dr. Mike has completed hundreds of hours of continuing education and continues to travel thousands of miles annually to continue learning the latest science on wellness and prevention. Dr. Mike is currently working on his postgraduate Chiropractic Wellness Lifestyle Practitioner Certification. His goal is to empower and teach his patients the implementation strategies on how to maximize their potential for health and vitality. This life changing information is based on the science of determining the eating, moving and thinking lifestyle patterns that match the human genetic requirements for wellness and prevention.
