Dr. Thomas Forest graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa in 1974. He has been practicing Upper Cervical Chiropractic in Pleasanton since 1975. He uses a unique adjusting method that is very precise, gentle and effective called the Blair Upper Cervical technique. He is a certified instructor that teaches doctors and Chiropractic students this x-ray analysis and adjusting technique in clinics and colleges across the United States.
Dr. Forest has been teaching this x-ray analysis and adjusting technique at Palmer College in Davenport, Iowa since 1999. For the past several years he has been teaching two ten week seminar series at Life College in Hayward. He also has spoken at Life College in Atlanta, Georgia, Life College here in the Bay Area, Sherman College in Spartenburg, South Carolina, a series of Blair clinics in Seattle, Washington, and a group of Chiropractors in Los Angeles at Dr. Drew Hall’s clinic. In August of 2012 Dr. Forest gave a Blair talk at the New Zealand Chiropractic College in Auckland. His motivation for this continued teaching is to provide early training to Chiropractic students and further training for practicing Chiropractors as well.
During his time in practice, he has seen a vast number of people of all ages, and conditions that respond to Upper Cervical care. Dr. Forest is from a family of Chiropractors. His father was a Chiropractor in Iowa until his death. His brother, Dr. Gary Forest is retired. His brother, Dr. Steve Forest practices in California. He and his family had the advantage of being raised with Chiropractic care and a natural approach to health. Experiencing this, while seeing other families with health problems and bad health habits, made him decide to be a Chiropractor like his father. Dr. Forest is married, has two daughters and lives in Pleasanton.
