Dr. Michael Friedman, D.C.
Laughter is the best medicine! As a Chiropractor and part time comedian, Dr. Michael Friedman is a firm believer in this adage and that it is a close second to chiropractic, but both make a tremendous difference in one’s well-being. Throughout his fourteen years in practice, Dr. Friedman has used this balanced approach to best help his patients achieve and maintain a high level of health and wellness.
His system of care includes open discussions with patients on how nutrition, regular exercise, stress reduction and management, combined with effective, regular chiropractic care that contribute to a healthy and pain-free life. This holistic approach was central to his building one of the first integrative Wellness Centers in Vancouver, prior to moving to Ottawa in 2008; and is what led him, with the same level of passion and achievement to continue to help his patients improve their quality of life here at Phelona Therapies.
As a chiropractor, Dr. Friedman is aware of just how powerful and intricate the nervous system is and why it is such a vital component of a healthy life. Consequently, his major professional development has focused on studies in the areas of neurology, nutrition and functional movement, all to improve his practice and learn new ways to help patients. This quest for knowledge and improved patient outcomes lead Dr. Friedman to become certified in the Performance for Life Method (PFLM), a specialized and highly effective protocol that was first used with professional and world class athletes, helping them to improve their performance. He has also completed training in Cranial Adjusting Turner Style (C.A.T.S.), getting great results with patients from adolescence to adult, who are suffering from headaches, post concussion syndrome as well as problems with concentration, speech, balance, sleep and more.
Dr. Friedman is also certified in BioFlex Low Intensity Laser Therapy, a highly effective device for treating a vast array of medical conditions including soft tissue and sports injuries, arthritis and more.
His mission as a chiropractor is to instill in each individual patient an appreciation of a balanced approach to healthy living and a keen awareness of the variety of ways to achieve physical and emotional well-being. The healthier the individual, the healthier the community; and that is nothing to laugh at.
