Chiropractor Fairlawn OH Jeremiah Freedman


Jeremiah Freedman D.C.

Dr. Jeremiah Freedman was born in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio and raised in Kent, Ohio. His interest in chiropractic began as a child when his family chiropractor took care of all his bumps and bruises.

It wasn’t until Dr. Freedman struggled with illness as an adult that his interest in chiropractic flared into a passion. Traditional medical doctors had given up on him and had told him he had to live with his pain, illness and discomfort. That’s when he turned to chiropractic and natural alternatives for help. His chiropractor at the time told him he wasn’t crazy and helped him make a full recovery.

There’s been no turning back. Dr. Freedman decided to dedicate his life to helping people discover that there are alternatives to pills, pain, and misery. A graduate of Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Missouri, Dr. Freedman opened his own office back home and his stated purpose became “My goal is to be the doctor that people can go to when they’ve lost all hope. I want to be there for them, their children, and their children’s children.”

Chiropractor Fairlawn OH Alex Calderone



Dr. Alex Calderone made her way here from Birmingham, Alabama. She received her undergraduate degree in Kinesiology at the University of Alabama. She then proceeded to Palmer Chiropractic College of Florida to continue to pursue her dream of becoming a Chiropractic Physician. Dr. Alex became intrigued by Chiropractic at a young age when searching for helpful treatments for her father who had back pain due to a past motorcycle accident.

She was later fortunate enough to work as a CA for the Chiropractor for the University of Alabama Athletics where she was able to grow her passion for chiropractic even more. Although she was able to learn a lot about conditions and how chiropractic helped others, she was unable to connect the dots to her own health issues that she had grown to write off and ignore.

Throughout Dr. Alex's teen years rolling into adulthood, she had a myriad of health issues herself that included tinnitus, dizziness, and severe menstrual pain Though seeking out medical care for her dizziness and tinnitus, she was never able to obtain relief. She began to ignore her pain because she lost hope in finding answers. She felt defeated and that her own body had betrayed her. It wasn't until her first quarter of Chiropractic School that she finally decided she couldn't ignore her issues anymore as her menstrual issues were causing her to miss school to remain in the fetal position for 2-3 days. Upon going to the ER, she found that she had multiple ovarian cysts and a splenic cyst. Answers as to why we're still not able to be obtained. Instead, medication was administered, and surgery was scheduled to remove one of the larger ovarian cysts. She was hopeful that she would wake up from the surgery with relief but instead woke up with regret to find out that the surgeon had removed the whole right ovary. Dr. Alex comes from a large Sicilian family and is passionate about having a family of her own one day. To wake up and find out that that chance was cut in half, was absolutely heart-wrenching.

As painful as this scenario was, it allowed Dr. Alex to truly understand the need for chiropractic care and the importance of understanding its global effects on the body and its organ system functions. It also allowed her to understand the danger of IGNORING. Dr. Alex decided to search for answers and a better route to care for the benefit of others and herself. During the remainder of Dr. Alex's Chiropractic education, she was able to further learn of natural alternatives to all care. More importantly, she found out how necessary it was to find the CAUSE for the problem and to aim efforts towards fixing the cause rather than getting rid/covering up of a symptom. She continued her education into an Internal Medicine Diplomat program where she was able to learn how to diagnose and treat conditions naturally through supplementation.

Dr. Alex's quest is to prevent others from having to go through the roller coaster of medications and surgeries that she experienced. "I want to help and encourage others not to ignore pain, not to accept defeat, and to get their life back. Our body is amazing! And given the proper support and care, we should be able to live a fruitful and happy life".

Chiropractor Fairlawn OH Nathaniel Betts Meet The Team


Nathaniel Betts D.C.

Except for my time away at Chiropractic School, I’ve been fortunate to call Northeast Ohio my lifelong home. Born and raised in Massillon, I graduated from Tuslaw High School in 2012. From when I was a kid, and all the way through high school, I played football primarily as a center.

But it wasn’t until my sophomore year that I encountered my first significant low back injury while performing a max-out lift before the season even started. With 315 pounds on the bar, I made it all the way to my 10th rep before I felt the bar slip and tried to catch it, resulting in a severe pull in my low back. It was during this period that I discovered the amazing benefits of chiropractic. All my trainers and coaches expected me to be out for many weeks of recovery, but my local chiropractor got me quickly back on the field, solidifying my belief in the ability of chiropractic care to change lives.

Following high school, I pursued higher education at Heidelberg University in Tiffin, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences in 2016. While I was here, I played a year of college football, but faced knee and lower back injuries early on that prompted me to retire from the sport. It was during these years that my passion for chiropractic care solidified and I realized that my purpose in life was to serve as a chiropractor so I could “pay forward” the help I had received that kept me playing as long as I did. My decision to retire from football allowed me to prioritize my own physical well-being in order to assist others. This journey culminated in me earning a certification in Applied Kinesiology and my Doctorate in Chiropractic (DC) from Life University in Atlanta in 2020.

Having explored numerous chiropractic offices, I felt compelled to return to my beloved community of northeast Ohio so I could be here for my parents and extended family. My experiences ranged from shadowing in family practice settings to offices focusing on acute injuries, chronic conditions, and sports-related issues. These experiences reaffirmed my commitment to providing exceptional care that patients can rely on. Educating patients about chiropractic benefits and the potential to enhance daily life is immensely gratifying, and even more so because it’s in a community I’m happy to call home.

When I’m not in the office, you can find me outside, usually camping and hiking. I enjoy watching football and hockey, exploring new destinations, visiting local breweries with friends and family. But my favorite things to do are spending quality time with my significant other, my nephew and hanging with my dog, Pappi.

Chiropractor Fairlawn OH Augustus Necastro Meet The Team


Augustus Necastro D.C.

After many years away, I’m excited to be back in Northeast Ohio! I grew up in Brookfield, Ohio and am a 2016 graduate of Brookfield High School where I was valedictorian and loved my time as leading quarterback for our football team.

After high school, I went on to Slippery Rock University to continue my studies and play football, and then later transferred to Westminster College in New Wilmington, PA to finish my undergrad and football career. I graduated from Westminster in 2020 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and proudly helped the Titian Football Team to an ECAC Bowl Title. After undergrad, I went on to earn my Doctorate in Chiropractic and Masters of Applied Clinical Nutrition from Northeast College of Health Sciences (formally New York Chiropractic College) in 2023.

My interest in chiropractic started after a pregame treatment by a chiropractor while at Slippery Rock University because I was having shoulder and rotator cuff issues that were nagging me through the football season. Following that first treatment, I experienced greater range of motion and a resolution of pain in the shoulder area. The very next day, I played an outstanding game and was hooked from there! After realizing the positive impact chiropractic had on me and my performance on the field, I decided to pursue chiropractic as a career so I could share these awesome benefits with up-and-coming athletes and their families. I was so fortunate to have the opportunity to spend my last semester of chiropractic school working with the chiropractors at the Cleveland Clinic where I was able to add the soft tissue techniques of Active Release Technique (ART), Fascial Distortion Model (FDM), and Graston Technique to my training. This incredible experience gave me the chance to work with all types of conditions and patient needs, and I’m excited to bring this knowledge and expertise to the Peak family. My mission in chiropractic is to give each patient the best opportunity to be their healthiest self, and I place the most importance on treating the whole patient, not just the condition or injury.

In my spare time I love to golf, ski, and lift weights. I also try to stay active in football as much as possible by volunteering time with my high school alma mater by coaching quarterbacks when I can. Needless to say, I’m very much looking forward to getting to know the local high school football programs and can’t wait to cheer on these hometown teams.
