Professional Bio

Dr. Beck Forsland is a chiropractic physician with a degree from the University of Western States. During her tenure as a graduate student, she was the senior intern for the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) for UWS and former CMO for the United States Olympic Committee. 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 and is Webster Certified for pediatric and perinatal needs through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). She is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine.

In her free time, Dr. Forsland enjoys living lightly on the earth with her husband, son, and backyard chickens.
