Our Core Values

  • Every patient is unique and deserves a personalized approach to their care - no two patients are alike and there is not a one size fits all solution. Here at The Forge, we understand that and strive to treat each and every patient like the unique individual they are. 


  • Every patient deserves evidence informed care - Health care research is always changing and expanding. Our goal is to always provide you with the most up to date treatments available that are shown to be the most effective for your condition.


  • We care about YOU not our ego - you and your health are our top priority! Our primary objective is to get you back to doing the things you love and we will gladly work with you and your other care providers to ensure that we get you on the road to recovery as quickly as possible.

Dr. Jacob Stoffel

Dr. Jacob Stoffel is a graduate of Northwestern Health Sciences University where he earned his Doctorate of Chiropractic with Sports Emphasis. This emphasis indicates that during school, Dr. Stoffel took additional coursework specifically focused on treating an athlete. These courses included taping and strapping, sideline concussion management, advanced extremity technique, and sports physicals.

Throughout his academic career, Dr. Stoffel went above and beyond - attending multiple seminars and workshops on top of school to hone his clinical abilities. Within the school, he was also very involved as the president of the Motion Palpation Institute club, a club dedicated to furthering clinical excellence amongst its members; as the secretary for the school's Student American Chiropractic Association Sports Council when they won national chapter of the year award for demonstrating a dedication for furthering sports care on campus; and assisting in teaching nearly every clinical course at school!

As with his academic career, Dr. Stoffel also went above and beyond during his clinical education. He interned first at MN Spine and Sport under Dr. Schreiber, voted the 2018 Rehabilitation Chiropractor of the Year, where he was heavily influenced by a patient-first evidence informed model of care. He then interned at the Human Performance Center on campus, an elite clinic where semi professional athletes of various sports can come in to receive care. In addition, he attended as many of the sideline events as he could. He was fortunate enough to work and treat athletes at events including: The World Racquetball games, World Broomball games, Iron Shield Jiu Jitsu tournament, Susan G Koman cancer walk, and the River City Rhythm marching band training camp and performance. 

Dr. Stoffel enjoys spending time with his growing family. When he isn't with his lovely wife Jennah and their beautiful children Evelynn and Gideon, he can be found spending his time exercising, reading, learning how to forge and blacksmith, and training in martial arts.
