Dr. Olson's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Olson "I was born and raised in Commack and graduated from Commack High School South in 1982. I started my College career at Nassau Community College in 1982. I was on the Deans list every year at Nassau Community College and graduated in 1985 with my Liberal Arts Degree. I received a Scholarship to the C.W. Post campus of Long Island University in Greenvale and graduated in 1990 with my Bachelors of Science. In 1991 I received my Personal Fitness Instructor Certification from the American Council on Exercise. I subsequently started my own Personal Fitness Training Business by traveling to homes to instruct people on how to workout. It was during that time that I decided I wanted to be in the health field and further my education. In October 1995 I decided to apply for Chiropractic school, I was accepted and on January 4, 1996 I was driving in a blizzard half way across the country to Chesterfield Missouri the home of Logan College of Chiropractic. In August 1999 I received my license to practice Chiropractic in New York State. I am also board certified by the New York State Chiropractic Association. I came back to Commack and started my own business at 66 Commack Road and a year later moved to my current location 285-10 Commack Road in Commack ( The Long Island Spine and Sports Injury Center). From 1991- 1995 I was the Chiropractor for The Long Island Rough Riders professional Soccer team. In 2012/2013 I was named by The New York Newsday as one of the top bone and joint Doctors on Long Island. Since starting my practice in 1999, I have also become certified in Active Release Techniques (2000) and am one of the few highly skilled practitioners of Active Release Techniques (A.R.T.) in Long Island. I am also certified in Manipulation under anesthesia and Kineso Taping."

One extremely important time was right before leaving on a plane for vacation - I was in dire pain, but within 2-3 visits was able to enjoy my trip which I truly did not think could be possible. I have seen...more
