Dr. Beck Forsland is a chiropractic physician with a degree from the University of Western States (UWS). During her tenure as a graduate student, she was the senior intern for the former Chief Medical Officer for the United States Olympic Committee (USOC). There, she worked with a wide variety of patients. Many wanted to address pain, illness, and injury in the most minimally invasive way possible. Many others wanted to achieve peak performance and continue to feel well and move freely.
She is patient-centered in her approach and desires to empower her patients through education and active care. Dr. Forsland continues to draw on her extensive background in yoga therapy and active care therapies including home exercise, as well as gentle manual adjusting, activator adjusting, fascial release techniques, craniosacral therapy, instrument-assisted soft tissue massage (IASTM), taping, and more.
Dr. Forsland has completed training in Craniosacral Therapy through the Upledger Institute. She is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine and is studying with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association to become Webster Certified for pediatric and perinatal needs.
In her free time, Dr. Forsland enjoys CrossFit, running, hiking, backpacking, rollerblading, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, biking, boondocking, yoga, meditation, decaf coffee, drawing, painting, playing the piano, perfecting her masala chai recipe, and living lightly on the earth with her husband and their two backyard chickens.
Dr. Forsland grew up in Andover, Minnesota. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin – River Falls with a degree in Sociology and Art. After graduation, she moved around the midwest and found herself in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Following a year-long yoga teacher training program, she opened a yoga studio in Menominee, Michigan. Dr. Beck relocated to Oregon to manage a nonprofit yoga studio when she discovered the University of Western States. She received her Doctor of Chiropractic in 2021.
Dr. Beck is an author at TwigandTrail.com where they share boondocking adventure experiences.
Historical interest: Dr. Beck bought her first house: an uninsurable, unlivable foreclosure that she renovated (and have since sold).
