Jennifer Ribar, DO
Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine
Tanana Valley Clinic
1919 Lathrop Street
Dr. Ribar is excited to be in her hometown of Fairbanks, practicing Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM). Her grandfather was a physician in Fairbanks for many years, and hearing stories about his practice inspired her to become a physician. She loves to hear stories from patients and their family members who knew him.
In practice, Dr. Ribar enjoys the bond that is developed with patients, getting to know each patient and their goals. She finds it extremely fulfilling to help people feel better at the time of treatment, as well as getting them back to the activities they love. In particular, she loves treating babies and children.
Dr. Ribar is one of eight physicians in the United States certified to teach seminars on the Fascial Distortion Model (FDM), which is a unique treatment that TVC OMM offers to our patients. FDM allows for effective manipulative treatment for pulled muscles, fractures and frozen shoulders. As one of the few, Dr. Ribar brings both experience as an osteopathic practitioner as well as a unique way of educating her patients about their bodies.
