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 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."

Dr. Olson was great, he was so knowledgeable in every area of question I had. He provided me stretches for my lower back, neck and even provided a brace for me. I can't thank you enough for the pain you have relieved. tying my own shoes was a problem, now I can move around freely without pain and know that if i ever need a quick or long term fix where to go.

Amazing treatments, chiropractor and staff. Want to feel better? Go to Dr. Olson. I feel so much better when I leave from there and you will too.
in Commack, NY |
Professional staff and service. I hurt my back and was able to get a last minute appointment. Besides relieving me of my severe pain Dr Olson has set up a plan to strengthen my back do this doesn't happen again.
in Commack, NY |
When I am experiencing lower back issues, which is usually 2-3 times a year I always go to Dr. Olson. If I go immediately when pain starts it usually takes 2-3 visits to be pain free again. He is very knowlegable and takes his time getting you back on track.. if you really need an appointment he will always fit you in.

Works wonders with my neck and back pain! He never disappoints!

Last year I had a major issue with my shoulder/neck area I went to Dr Olsen and he fixed me right up I was in massive pain and he really helped me out. This year the pain came back and I didn't waste anytime calling Dr Olsen went 2 times so far and feel so much better. Its amazing I was very impressed. Highly recommend.

After 3 days of seeing Dr. Olson I feel like I can run a mile. I have had a bad back most of my life and for those that know, the pain can be unbearable. After 3 treatments for 3 consecutive days he has me back up on my feet. Normally I would have had to wait a week to see a doctor, he saw me immediately. Very satisfied with both the care and treatment I have received from both Dr. Olson as well as his staff. I would highly recommend Dr. Olson.

I "crawled" into Dr. Olson's office on a Monday and by Saturday I was dancing out. There isn't enough words to describe the relief he has given me. The pain was at a close 10!! Now it is barely a 1. I HIGHLY recommend him!! His staff was so nice and kind and got me in quick! 5 stars!!
Marty, Thanks for the great review. I am glad I could get you back so quick.

Recently I injured my planter fascia on my left foot. I was carted off to the ER, poked and prodded, x ray’s, MRI and bloodwork. Thank God there were no tears or anything else accepts the strain of the fascia. I received an injection and Left the ER with crutches and cam boot. Still not able to apply any pressure on my foot. While reading about my injury I found a video on soft tissue therapy on the foot and right away popped in my head “DR Gary”. He helped me out tremendously before so maybe he

I was experiencing severe lower back pain which stopped me from doing anything. I began treatment with Dr. Olson about 6 weeks ago. He is using different treatments such as low level electrical stimulation with heat pack and manual hand techniques. I have to say I am doing 100% better. I am now doing his recommended exercises to strengthen my back which I am finding extremely helpful. I feel great! Dr. Olson is very professional along with his staff. I would recommend him to everyone.
I would like to thank you for trusting with your healthcare and I am glad I was able to relieve your pain. I'm overjoyed with the fact that you have and will stay pain free.

in Hauppauge, NY |
Thank you Dr. Olson! After being in a terrible car accident, having 13 surgeries, two major spine surgeries, and dreading possible a third, I was sent to your office without much hope. But within a couple of visits I was able to actually stand up with relief, and have quality of life back! I can't thank you enough! Besides being a phenomenal doctor, I made a great friend.

I have been under Dr. Olson's care for the past month since my car accident, in which I was rear ended by a distracted driver. Dr. Olson and his professional staff are all wonderful and I highly recommend his office to you. AAA+++
in Melville, NY |
Dr. Gary Olson and his staff are great. He is an exceedingly knowledgeable practioner. I would not hesitate recommending him to anyone. I have been seeing Dr. Olson on and off for the past ten years, and though I reside a long distance from his office I wouldn't think of going anywhere else. His "Active Release Therapy" is wonderful and helps me greatly
So glad I was able to use my A.R.T skills on you. Glad to hear your pain free.
in Holbrook, NY |
Dr.Gary Olsen is simply excellent. He is very knowledgeable in his field. Even in pretty busy schedule takes keen interest and observation of his patient. For the first week, I didn't understand the treatment. Trust me, within few weeks you will be a new person. The staff is very friendly too. I highly recommend Dr.Gary if you are dealing with any kind of Neck, muscle, or joint pain. Thank you very much!
in Smithtown NY |
My wife and I have have been treated by Dr Gary over 13 years. He was able to see us ASAP and his technique and Knowledge is by far the best out there. Just recently our son- a HS Baseball player had a lower back issue and within a few short weeks Dr Gary was able to have him playing again. We highly recommend Dr Olson The Vogel Family
Westbury, NY |
The Best!!! Dr. Olson first helped me by coming in on Sunday morning to give me the first treatment on short notice. Previously, I went to a different chiropractor who tried to sell me an expensive treatment an offered no help and let me leave in pain. This was not the case here. After the 1st visit to Dr. Olson's office the pain subsided. I have just finished my 3rd session and the pain is gone. The office is extremely clean, the staff is professional and accommodating. Equipment is top-notch.
in Commack, NY |
Went in to see Dr Olson for lingering back pain from when I was younger and had relief of some pain within 1 week and a 90% reduction in pain within 1 month of treatment. He and his staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. Wonderful experiences and will continue to go back.

Best chiropractor in Commack. Very bright doctor with lots of experience. He treated me for lower back pain which had been bothering me for years. I felt better in just a couple of weeks after a few visits. Thanks, Dr. Olson!
A caring doctor, using his skill to help you avoid surgery, reduce pain and understand the way to keep you physical body functioning. He doesn't just treat the pain he understands what is causing it and works to fix it at its source,

Dr. Olson combines his expertise and compassion to a new level. And he has helped several of my friends to avoid surgeries that could have impacted their lives.

I've been to many chiropractors throughout the years and Gary Olson is absolutely one of the best. As an athlete, I do not like to be away from competition or training for any length of time. In any athletic endeavor, injury is always a possibility whether it be from pulling a muscle or soreness that limits activity, going to see Gary has always returned me to top performance quickly. I'd recommend him to any of my training partners or people that I coach who need to return to action quickly
in Commack, NY |
I injured my back just before Thanksgiving. Dr Olson was the only professional who agreed to see me over a busy holiday weekend. He was able to alleviate most of my pain in only a few treatments. His staff is professional and caring. I can't thank them enough
in Greenlawn, NY |
IDr. Olsen is awesome. He helped me through a terrible nerve/shoulder injury that kept me away from weightlifting for almost 4 months. I thought i would never get better and almost gave up until I came across his office. Upon entering, he assured me I would heal and gave me hope to push forward. Now, I'm back better than ever and still continue to see him for maintenance. Definitely recommend!!
in Commack, NY |
Dr. Olson's assessment was accurate and he began treatment immediately for my shoulder problem that was not healing through traditional physical therapy. After a few visits I finally feel back to normal. Nice guy and professional staff!

in Kings Park, NY |
Dr. Olson has helped me tremendously over the past few years. I shuffled into his office one day, unable to move, and through the use of his ART techniques he helped me become pain-free. He takes the time to use a variety of approaches so that you can get the most out of each session.

I started going to Dr. Olson for lower back pain, due to 3 bulging discs, 1 1/2 yrs ago. Two years ago I had an epidural to treat a burning pain in my left foot, due to compression of a nerve root. After two years the pain came back, & I told Dr. Olson about it. He worked on my back for 3 weeks & the pain was gone. He is now working on pain, that I have had for 1 yr., in my left shoulder due to a torn rotator cuff. He was also able to alleviate that pain in 3 weeks. I consider him to be

in Smithtown, NY |
I am going through lower back and related sciatica since last 15 months and fortunately found Dr Olsen in the area where I have recently relocated. He accepted me as his patient while knowing that I have severe back issue which needs a surgery as recommended by spine specialist. Dr Olsen targeted treatment in the right impacted area along with decommission which is working! I am in much better status now as compared to my earlier situation where I was not able to sit even for 5 minutes.
in Smithtown, NY |
I have gone to Dr.Olson for a couple of years now and with every injury that I brought to his attention I left pain free in just a few treatments. I have gone for a hamstring pull, knee injury and an ankle injury. I never hesitate to go to Dr.Olson with any injury or pain that I feel.

I have been seeking relief for my chronic back pain for most of my adult life. I figured I would have to live with daily pain. Fortunately, this changed when I met Dr. Olson. Almost immediately, I felt relief from the daily pain that had plagued me for years. I am on a maintenance program and am practically pain free. Dr. Olson with his dedication and unique approach has greatly improved my quality of life.

Dr. Olson and his amazing staff really treat all their patients with respect and empathy. They make you feel comfortable whether it is your first visit or 100th.

Dr. Olson has been a godsend. From the moment I began with his practice, Dr. Olson has always taken the time to listen to me, and prescribe a treatment plan that is personalized for my condition. My lingering disc problem in my neck has improved drastically. I highly recommend Dr. Olson.
