Dr. Jennifer Forster's chiropractic career was influenced by a teenage illness caused by anti-inflammatory medications. At 14, she was hospitalized for a week due to the medication side effects and subsequently lost 40 pounds in two months.  As a result, this illness left her body with overall body weakness causing her primarily to experience low back pain.  In an effort to avoid additional medications, her father introduced her to chiropractic healthcare and through chiropractic she recovered from this unfortunate medication-caused illness.  Chiropractic changed Dr. Forster's life forever.

After graduating from Life Chiropractic College West in 2003, Dr. Forster briefly practiced in a wellness center in Santa Clara, CA and then decided to open her own practice in Campbell, CA in the winter of 2004.  Since opening Insight Chiropractic, Dr. Forster has developed a wonderful chiropractic office offering needed alternative healthcare insights to patients new and old to chiropractic. Dr. Forster  practices family chiropractic with specific emphasis on Sports, Senior and Foot chiropractic.

Dr. Forster uses a "whole person approach" when taking care of her patients. By combining the very best hands-on-technique, state of the art physiotherapy procedures, and providing the newest and best natural vitamins/mineral and whole-food supplements on the market today.  Dr. Forster will help you to accelerate and/or maintain your journey toward good health.  Dr. Forster's chiropractic techniques include diversified, drop table, flexion-distraction and Activator for full spine and extremity adjusting.  Additionally, she is certified and specializes in Active Release Techniques (ART), a soft tissue management skill, that helps in the recovery of injured and over used-muscles, nerves and connective tissues.  Additionally, she has completed her Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioners course work and pending certification.

In addition, Dr. Forster developed a balance therapy class for seniors at a local senior center in San Jose, became a credentialed U.C. Berkeley chiropractor working with Division 1 elite athletes and helped to develop the long distance walking program for San Jose Fit.  Dr. Forster believes that good health care can be achieved by taking preventative actions; and therefore devotes her time living and educating people about the benefits of chiropractic and other alternative healthcare practices.  

A few Dr. Forster's long term goals include becoming an Olympic chiropractor for an individual athlete, bringing her senior balance therapy program to the public and having multiple chiropractic locations.

Testimonial

Review By Our Satisfied Patient

  • "Dr. Jen helped me fully recover from a car accident when my primary care physician, long-term physical therapy, and therapeutic massage had no benefit at all. I've had really mixed experiences with chiropractors in the past (mostly unhelpful), but Dr. Jen knows techniques that were very effective and restored full range of motion to my neck without pain. I am beyond grateful and have referred one of my best friends to her; the friend is just as delighted as I am. In addition to being uniquely effective, Dr. Jen provides the perfect balance between nurturing human warmth and professional efficiency. I think she's amazing."

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
