1. INSURANCE COVERAGE: We accept nearly every insurance that has coverage for Chiropractic in the state of Washington. That includes all auto insurance medical coverage, Workman's Compensation coverage through the state or private, Group Health, Regence, Premera, First Choice, and nearly all other insurances.
2. EXPERIENCE: Dr. Howard Friedly has over 30 years of experience in treating spine related problems. From auto accident or work related injuries, to headaches or asthma, Dr. Friedly has an excellent success rate at reducing or eliminating, not just the symptoms, but the underlying condition causing the symptoms. "My favorite cases are auto or work related injuries. My goal is not just to eliminate the patient's pain, but to optimize their healing and function, so that they will not suffer the long term disabling effects that often accompany such injuries. It is also important to get the patient well as quickly as possible, at a minimum cost in terms of time and money. I happen to be very good at that." Dr. Friedly's close relationships with local attorneys and medical specialists ensure that his patients get all of the help they need, both physically and legally.
3. MASSAGE THERAPY: Jaime Smith, LMP is our massage therapist. Having massage therapy in house is very convenient for our patients. It also promotes better communication between Dr. Friedly and the therapist, for the benefit of the patient. Jaime has an intuitive feel for where the patient needs help, and combines that with her extensive knowledge and skill, making her one of the best injury treatment therapists I have ever had the pleasure of working with. If stress relief or relaxation massage is what you want, Jaime can make your muscles melt and your worries a distant memory.

5. AFFORDABILITY: We realize that in Washington State most insurance companies limit Chiropractic coverage far below what most patients need. Many people have no insurance coverage at all. For these situations we have combined treatment packages with monthly payment plans that allow nearly anyone to afford the care they need for a healthier, pain free life. Insurance does not cover wellness care. So if you want to maintain a healthy spine after your treatment, these affordable packages are ideal for that purpose. If you would like to pamper yourself with regular relaxation massages, we offer massage packages at a substantial discount. If you thought you couldn't afford Chiropractic care or massage, check out our deals. For a list of prices click here.
