About Dr. Greg Fors:
A doctor of chiropractic, graduate of Northwestern Health Science University, and a Board Certified Neurologist (IBCN). Dr. Fors is on the post graduate faculty of Chiropractic Colleges, and lectures to doctors and therapists around the country on chronic myofascial pain disorders, and fibromyalgia syndrome. These seminars educate doctors on the latest research findings on the causes of, and the most effective natural treatments for chronic myofascial pain. Dr. Greg Fors is a nationally certified Diplomate in Acupuncture (NCCAOM) and certified in Botanical Medicine (NHSU).
Dr. Greg Fors is the inventor and developer of the Fenix Rehab Systems for the self-treatment of pain-causing myofascial trigger points. These are self-care devices that allow individuals with chronic pain to effectively deactivate there pain-causing myofascial trigger points through a program of various myofascial therapies.
FRE, Inc. was created by Dr. Greg Fors to provide the public with an on-line store with a very select line of pain-relief and wellness nutritional and physical fitness products. It turns out that programs designed to bring you relief from chronic myofascial pain disorders also promote wellness.
Over time we found it very exhausting to apply pressure therapy to multiple myofascial trigger points day in and day out. Soon we developed chronic upper extremity repetitive stress injuries. This is exactly why many clinicians no longer do comprehensive myofascial treatment; because the strain of trigger point therapy and myofascial release causes a high incidence of practitioner injuries.
As a practitioner, I developed disabling low back pain and chronic shoulder-arm pain. I had access to all the best healthcare could provide; however nothing helped. Out of necessity I kept creating ways to treat my own trigger points, as many others have done in chronic pain. Finally, after trail and error, I created a treatment platform with interchangeable therapeutic digits to apply effective trigger point therapy through out my body. With this device I could over time release all my active and latent TPs. I also found that I could find all these trigger points on me easier then trying to direct some other clinician to them.
Another problem I found is that many individuals with chronic myofascial pain cannot afford either the money or the time to keep coming back for repeat office visits to get rid of all their myofascial trigger points. Because of this they would get part way through their care program and quit. As a result the pain would not entirely clear up or it would all come back.
In his clinical practice, Dr. Greg Fors discovered that there was no a real substitute for the physical effort and time involved in comprehensive trigger point therapy; if you wanted to truly rehabilitate a chronic myofascial pain syndrome. Research bears this out, when different therapy techniques have been compared in studies, manual trigger point therapy always comes out on top for getting rid of chronic myofascial pain.
Clinically Dr. Fors realized that patients with chronic myofascial pain disorders of the back, neck, and extremities got better quicker when they had the ability to self-treat their own myofascial trigger points, clinical studies bear this out. Because of this it became his goal to put a Fenix Rehab System into the hands of the 86 million American adults suffering from chronic myofascial pain and the 10 million who suffer with Fibromyalgia. It is Dr. Greg Fors' desire to alleviate the pain and suffering of those affected with treatable chronic pain, without relying on dangerous drugs and surgery. As a chiropractic neurologist who specializes in chronic pain disorders, he has seen too many lives destroyed from chronic pain: drug addiction, careers ruined, families torn apart and even suicide. That's why Dr. Greg Fors invented the Fenix Rehab System and created FRE, Inc. to bring quality products and information to the millions who suffer from chronic myofascial pain and fibromyalgia syndrome.
Chronic myofascial pain became even more painful for me when my oldest daughter developed severe fibromyalgia. When it first hit her she had to crawl up the stairs on her hands and knees to her bedroom. Standard medicine had no answers for her, only dangerous drugs with severe side-effects.
So Dr. Greg Fors using his knowledge and doing more extensive research put her on a program of care using the Fenix Rehab System to gently treat her myofascial trigger points, and a program of specific nutraceuticals and herbs to help in her recovery, more about this later. This nutritional and physical care program has brought her back to a normal life once again.
Through this personal experience and the numerous patients Dr. Fors has treated
through the years with chronic myofascial pain and fibromyalgia, he has
developed an effective physical and metabolic approach to chronic pain.
