Dr. Mike Forstner - Chiropractor

Dr. Mike Forstner

Dr. Michael Forstner is a structurally based chiropractor who focuses on the health of the Nervous System, to allow the proper communication between the brain and the body. He believes that each body can reach its full potential with correct alignment in the spine. Dr. Michael also believes that a healthy lifestyle outside the office can be the difference between pain relief and true wellness care.

Dr. Michael grew up in small town Wisconsin where he was the “work horse” of his soccer team. His dedication to soccer and his ability to play the sport at an elite level often lead to wear and tear on his body. When he began to play Varsity, he accumulated multiple injuries and chose chiropractic care to alleviate the pain. While attending University Wisconsin of Oshkosh, Dr. Michael declared a major in Pre-Med Biology to pursue a career in Chiropractic, in hopes to one day help athletes like himself.

Dr. Michael was accepted to Palmer College of Chiropractic in the Fall of 2013. During his time at Palmer he not only worked side by side with Dr. Cherrie Marriot, D.I.C.C.P., Palmer College of Chiropractic’s leading Pediatric practitioner, he was also an intern in the Rehabilitation Center. This unique opportunity allowed Dr. Michael to work with a wide variety of patients, from the littlest infant to the marathon runner. Dr. Mike has spent time outside of the classroom attending seminars certifying himself in various techniques including Logan, Activator, and NIMMO Soft Tissue. Before graduating in February 2017, Dr. Mike had the opportunity to work in Portland, Oregon at City Chiropractic with Dr. Larry Hamberg. During his time at City Chiropractic Dr. Michael performed consultations, exams, and x rays, an important first look in to the history of a new patient.

Dr. Michael is overjoyed to now be living in Lansdale with fiancee Dr. Sara Trefnoff. When the opportunity arose to work at Merkel Chiropractic he knew that it was the perfect fit to serve a community in Pennsylvania. When Dr. Michael isn’t in the office you can find him still playing soccer, hiking, and playing with his Border Collie Gambit.
