Patients in the Portland, Oregon Area
The Frida Center is currently closed to new patients for medical treatment, as we are at the capacity we can treat. If you would like to be notified when we are able to accept new patients again, please send us an email. Thank you for your understanding.
We do still offer Myofascial Release Therapy, the most effective therapy for fibromyalgia pain that Dr. Liptan has found. You can find more on MFR by clicking here.
If you are in looking for the most up-to-date medical information to help in guiding your care, Dr. Liptan has included a clear and concise provider’s guide to treating fibromyalgia in her book, The Fibromanual: A Complete Fibromyalgia Treatment Guide for You and Your Doctor. We encourage you to share this guide with your providers. She is also developing training courses for other providers and online classes for patients.
If you have not had any success in finding a provider willing to work with you on implementing Dr. Liptan’s Four R’s treatment approach, we suggest looking for a doctor or naturopath trained in functional medicine. This integrative approach seeks to find the best treatments from Western and alternative medicine, and generally these providers are better equipped to implement the approach outlined in The FibroManual. You can search for functional medicine providers here.
