Dr.AMY B. OLSONFounder/Chiropractic Physician
Dr. Amy Olson of Novi loves chiropractic. She was in a minor car accident at the age of 5, and for years afterwards, she experienced neck pain and stiffness that medical doctors and physical therapists could not explain or relieve. When she was 12 years old, Dr. Amy began to experience terrible migraine headaches along with debilitating dizziness and nausea. At the age of 14 she was diagnosed with a seizure disorder and placed on strong anti-seizure medications. Not only did these meds have unpleasant side-effects, but her seizure diagnosis also prevented her from obtaining a driver’s license.
At 19 years of age and while in college at the University of Michigan, Dr. Amy had a severe migraine headache that lasted several weeks. Her neurologist could do nothing to stop it besides give her a shot of a pain medication, which did not even touch the pain. At that point, a friend suggested she see a chiropractor. She wasn’t very optimistic, but out of desperation she made an appointment, and got a big surprise that day. The chiropractor adjusted her neck, and almost immediately the headache was gone. “It felt like a miracle,' says Dr. Amy.
Turns out, she did not have a seizure disorder at all- she was simply suffering from spinal dysfunction and irritation of the nerves in the neck, leading to her bizarre symptoms. Since that day and over the course of the past 15 years of regular chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Amy stopped taking prescription medication and has not suffered migraine pain. She was so thrilled with her experience that she abandoned her original plans for medical school, and decided to pursue chiropractic.
Dr. Amy has since dedicated her life to those determined to live a drug-free and natural lifestyle. Her own daughter, Allie, 6 yrs-old, is adjusted regularly, and absolutely loves it- when asked how she stays healthy, she replied “Vitamins, water, and adjustments!” Proof- if kids are given the information and the opportunity to make healthy choices, they likely will!
Dr. Amy is very passionate about chiropractic for whole families, including the little ones. Having your childs' spine and nervous system properly aligned gives them a huge head start in life- 'chiro kids just tend to look and feel healthier, and get sick less frequently than their peers,' says Dr. Amy.
