  • Dr.
    Howard Friedly

    I'm Dr. Howard Friedly. It is such a pleasure to me to serve the people of the Lacey, Olympia, Tumwater area, because this is my home town. I grew up in Lacey and attended Lydia Hawk Elementary, Chinook Junior High, and North Thurston High School. I left for a while to attend Washington State University and Palmer College of Chiropractic, but I never found anywhere that I would rather live than here in Thurston County. I returned to open my practice here in 1982.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Since beginning treatment with Dr. Friedly, I move more freely especially bending. I do not have the intense lower back pain that I once suffered with daily. Walking is easier and standing all day on my job, without burning legs, is great."
    A. Schnebly
  • "After having major surgery on my hip, I walked with a limp for several weeks. The hip healed completely, but my gait had been altered, causing pain in my spine. When I came to Dr. Friedly for an exam and x-rays, the vertebrae in my lower back had a distinct curve. Dr. Friedly began treatment, and after the very first adjustment I walked out of his office without a limp. From that time on my treatment has resulted in less pain and drastic improvement in my gait. Thank God for Dr. Howard Friedly."
    L. Berndson
  • "My name is Keahaulani and I've had very good and surprising results from my experience at Dr. Friedly's office. Before I started seeing Dr. Friedly I had migraine headaches and mild to moderate low back pain, but since I've follwed up with my adjustments and my exercises, my migraines have not come back and my back feels so good that I feel my posture and even my attitude have improved."
    K. Miller
  • "When I first came in to see Dr. Friedly I was in a lot of pain. I was taking 6 to 8 hydrocodone a day. When I started treatment I felt some relief right away, but it would come back after a while. This was my last chance to get rid of the pain before submitting to surgery. As the treatment went on I got better and better. Now I might take 2 pain pills a week. When I first started my toes were completely numb. Now I've gotten some feeling back in my toes. I feel a thousand times better."
