About Forza

Forza Chiropractic was founded in 2009 to help heal patients and relieve pain by focusing on the source of the pain, rather than simply reducing symptoms. This allows the body to heal itself using its own natural abilities. For 10 years, we have helped our community heal from a wide variety of conditions.

What Keeps Us Going

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to provide the members of our community with excellent service and enable them to achieve optimal health, both physically and mentally, in order to live fuller, more satisfying lives.

Our Vision

We strive to strengthen our community by providing the highest quality chiropractic care, backed by proven results and excellent service. We recognize the importance of our patients and the work they do, and know that many of them make great sacrifices in serving their families and our community.

Our Mission

We see it as our privilege and honor to serve and support these everyday heroes, helping them to achieve superior health and enabling them to perform at their very best.

Our Core Values

Respect & Integrity

We are committed to the belief that every person deserves to be treated with respect, and the best way to express that is by acting with honesty and integrity. Our patients come to us and trust us with the health of their bodies and their families, so we honor and cherish that relationship. The positive difference we can make in their lives depends on this rock solid foundation of mutual trust and respect.

5-Star Service

We honor our patients and believe in providing them with a first-class experience. We insist on making every visit a memorable occasion in which they can relax and enjoy being pampered. In everything we do and every interaction we have, we want our patients to feel and know how important they are. As parents, breadwinners, and service workers, they all too often put themselves last, but our clinic is a sanctuary of restoration where they can enjoy a moment of unbridled luxury.

Family & Community

As a facility dedicated to health and improvement, we support one another through physical challenges, as well as with mental and emotional obstacles. We value the role of the family, and we view our practice and our patients like an extended family circle. Not only do we support each other, but we also hold each other accountable through our commitments, in order to stay on course and make true progress.


At the heart of our business, we see it as our priority to create real changes in the lives of our patients. Every client can count on a personalized care plan based on producing demonstrable, measurable results.

Our Team

Dr. Drew Voelsch

Owner / Clinic Director

Dr. Drew has always had a passion for sports and improving performance. He played Lacrosse at Arizona State University, before transferring to Augustana where he began playing Rugby. Drew’s passion for athletic performance, and rugby led him to the study of Chiropractic Medicine. To pursue his studies, he wanted to choose the best, so he chose Palmer College of Chiropractic.

Dr. Drew is a proud graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic which was established in 1897 and is the first and largest school that specializes in the study of chiropractic medicine in the world.

Dr. Drew began his practice of chiropractic medicine and physical therapy in downtown Chicago, focusing on how pain and other symptoms impact both athletic performance and daily life. He enjoyed many benefits by practicing downtown, but Dr. Drew’s passion is for family and community, which brought him to Hawkeye Chiropractic in 2019, which has since rebranded to Forza Chiropractic in 2024.

Carla Mellace

Our Angel

Carla was our vivacious Office Manager from the very beginning. She was Doc’s right hand gal (and mother-in-law) and truly helped him grow the clinic to what it is today. In July 2022 she was diagnosed with a very rare cancer and dedicated her time and energy into healing, traveling, spending time with her granddaughter and her closest family and friends. In December 2023 she was called home and there isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t think of her or feel her presence. All that we are is because of this wonderful woman. May our beautiful angel rest eternally in peace.

Fun Bio

Her favorite music was 80’s Disco and we still play her playlist in the clinic in her honor.
