Hello, my name is Dr. Casey Frieder.
My job is to guide you towards greater health and well-being. I believe you have tremendous healing power within you. Together, we can activate this power so that you can experience more happiness and freedom in your life.
As an integrative physician, I respect the principles of nature and your own unique physiology. Rather than chase symptoms or mask them with drugs, I seek to identify the underlying causes of your health problems–whether they be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. I will listen carefully to your story, ask meaningful questions, conduct a thorough physical exam, and run appropriate lab tests to illuminate the roots of your dis-ease. Once the roots are identified, we can pull out the weeds and cultivate new growth through optimizing sleep, nutrition, movement, relationships and releasing unnecessary stress. This is an effective and validated approach to creating wellness, known in the scientific literature as “Functional Medicine.”
I use a wide array of therapeutic modalities including Manual Therapy (osseous adjustments, soft-tissue release, Graston Technique, Craniopathy/TMJ release, Nasal Specific Treatment, Visceral Manipulation), Nutrition and Natural Supplements, Clinical Hypnotherapy, Non-surgical Skin Blemish Removal, Yogic healing exercises and a healthy dose of Common Sense.
I received my doctorate degree from the University of Western States (UWS) in Portland, Oregon; graduating Summa Cum Laude as valedictorian in 2012. I’ve earned post-grad certification to perform minor surgery in the state of Oregon and I’m certified in Advanced Clinical Hypnosis through the Leela School in Ashland (www.leelaschool.org). My undergraduate degrees are in philosophy and human biology from the University of New Mexico and UWS.
Before becoming a physician, I had an enjoyable career as a woodworker and before that I lived in India for a couple years while studying the science of Yoga. I’ve been in practice in Southern Oregon since April, 2012, and I still feel so blessed to live in such a beautiful place! I have two wonderful daughters who keep me on my toes and if I’m not in the clinic, you’ll probably find me outdoors–mountain biking, rock climbing, alpine skiing, playing soccer, or making music in the local marimba band Rutendo (www.rutendo.band).
