The Benefits of Therapeutic Services
Dr. Jared Friebel DC, BS
When it comes to healing your body, whether from previous/current injuries, organ dysfunction, or a muscle imbalance, proper supplementation, and chiropractic adjustments can help you with the process; however, therapeutic services can help in healing the body even faster.
Hello, my name is Dr. Jared Friebel and I perform the therapeutic services at Dr. Chris’ Natural Remedies. To tell you a little about myself, I was born and raised in Mansfield, OH. I attended the University of Mount Union in Alliance, OH where I graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Chemistry and Exercise Science. I attended Life University in Marietta, GA, earning my Doctorate in Chiropractic 2018. I joined the team at Dr. Chris’ Natural Remedies in January of 2019 where I wanted to use my knowledge to help those in need of my services. The therapeutic services we offer include ultrasound, electrical stimulation (e-stim), cold laser therapy, myofascial release, neuromuscular reeducation, cryotherapy, kinesiology taping, and vibe plate.
Ultrasound therapy can be used for the reduction of pain, relaxing tissue tension, increasing blood flow, breaking down scar tissue, and deep heat. The most common injuries treated with ultrasound include bursitis, tendonitis, muscle strains and tears, frozen shoulder, sprains, ligament injuries, as well as joint contracture or tightness.
E-stim is a noninvasive method for relieving pain by sending mild electrical impulses through the skin to help stimulate injured muscles or to manipulate nerves. Common conditions for treatment include neck/back pain, joint pain, arthritis, muscle conditioning, muscle injury, muscle atrophy, nerve inflammation, and surgery recovery.
Cold laser therapy is a low-intensity laser therapy that stimulates healing on a cellular level while using low levels of light. The main uses for cold laser therapy are tissue repair and relief of pain and inflammation. Common conditions for treatment include ligament sprains, muscle strains, tendonitis, bursitis, spinal/joint pain, inflammation, wound healing, skin rejuvenation, and much more.
Myofascial release focuses on reducing pain by easing the tension and tightness in trigger points by releasing the fascia over a broad area of muscle and tissue rather than a single point. Muscle movement can be restored with myofascial release, strength to the muscle, improved circulation, decreased pain, and reduced adhesions and scar tissue.
Neuromuscular reeducation is a technique that is used to restore normal body movement patterns. Patients who experience general tenderness and decreased motion of joints need to be addressed to eliminate the patient’s symptoms and correct the underlying problem. Without the neuromuscular reeducation process, “normal” movement patterns are unlikely to be re-established.
Cryotherapy means “cold therapy” where the body is exposed to extremely cold temperatures. Cryotherapy has multiple benefits including reducing migraine/headache symptoms, numbing nerve irritation, reducing joint/arthritic pain, promoting healing and blood flow, reducing pain and inflammation, and reducing swelling.
Kinesiology is an anatomical science that focuses on the treatment of connective tissue, joints, muscles, and tendons, connecting the science of muscular and skeletal movement. Kinesiology aims to maintain balance in the muscles and adjoining tissues, and one method of doing this is by wrapping the muscles and surrounding tissues with supportive material called kinesiology tape.
The vibe plate is a platform exercise machine that distributes Oscillating Vibration Technology, the safest form of vibration. The vibe plate has multiple benefits, which include: weight loss, reducing cellulite and inflammation, improving circulation and lymphatic drainage, toning muscles and skin and improving flexibility, range of motion, balance, and mobility.
