Dr. Gary De Forest has been in practice as a sports chiropractor in Old Town San Diego for over 30 years. He is always happy to speak with you about any health concerns. He can be reached at deforest192@yahoo.com . Dr. De Forest's office features physical therapy and X-Rays ( if needed) on site. Dr. De Forest is a native to San Diego and stays very healthy, still racing motocross at age 58 with regular chiropractic care for his own health. You know you are in the right spot when the Dr takes his own medicine!

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I only take x-rays when needed. Like after significant acute trauma or another red flag indicator that would warrant taking x-rays. I have x-rays on site if needed. I get right to the patient's problem and offer my advice as whether I can help them get well and stay well. I do REAL chiropractic adjustments and 95% of my patients get well in 5 to 10 treatments, if not just a few. I combine needed, proven physical therapy techniques with the adjustments and inform my patients how to stay well and off Rx drugs when appropriate.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

Neck, shoulder and back injuries, all sports injuries. I treat Carpal Tunnel, elbow pains, knees, ankles, feet and toes, hands and fingers, headaches , disc injuries/conditions, numbness, tingling down the arms to hands, fingers, legs, feet and toes, Sciatica, neuralgia's with a 95% success rate over 30 years now.

What are you proud of in your practice?

Getting folks well, out of pain and off drugs in a short amount of treatments, usually under 10 to 12 treatments. Then I encourage them to stay well, just as they should get their teeth cleaned BEFORE their teeth or mouth hurts as they would do with any dental program. I cure folks that have been LABELED with Migraine or various headaches by making sure their neck is aligned and moving properly. Many people have never tried Chiropractic and their medical doctor has never taken the interest or time to to have them at least try chiropractic for their headaches or other conditions. They just want to send you out for more drugs!

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy treating all cases but I love to get folks of prescription drugs for headaches and back pain. Many folks also have their blood pressure lowered with chiropractic as it gets rid of stress in the spine and many also report sleeping much better. Prescription drugs kill about 180,000 Americans each year! Only about 15,000 die from illegal drugs! No one died from vitamins or chiropractic care, not one! The USA should use chiropractic as a first resort, not a last resort. for all non-medical emergencies and the national health care costs would be cut in half. But you have to see a RESULTS orientated chiropractic doctor. Not one that just wants to sign you up for a million treatments in advance.
