Testimonialswhat our patients are saying

Ian W. 2012 Olympian

"Working with Dr. Olson has played a huge role in helping me stay healthy which allowed me to make the 2012 Canadian Olympic Team. What I like about Dr. Olson is his in-depth knowledge of the human body. He is able to teach me about my body so that when I travel to other places for track meets I am still able to maintain my health on my own. His approach to treatments is very simple, but it works and you always leave his office in a better condition then when you arrived."

Brian F. Altoona

"Dr. Ole provides a better quality of life through his advanced techniques in both chiropractic care and functional medicine. He implements his training and experience into a complete personalized wellness program for each individual who walks into his door."

Micah T. Ankeny

"Dr. Olson provides a unique approach to helping your body achieve top functionality. With active release techniques, trigger point, massage, etc, he doesn't just adjust the spine and let you go, he'll find muscle imbalances that cause subluxations (treating the cause, not just symptoms). I feel much better after being treated by Dr. Olson and highly recommend him."

Sandy E. Ankeny

"Dr. Olson partnered with balance yoga lounge to provide an introduction to acupuncture for our yogis. I especially appreciated the level of professionalism and enthusiasm he conveyed throughout the workshop. Several students were trying acupuncture for the first time and were a bit timid, but his confidence and thorough explanations allowed everyone to enjoy the experience! We are definitely planning to offer more workshops with Dr. Olson."

Stephanie D. Baxter

"Dr. Ole has really helped me get through a lot of rough patches with my on going back issues. I have known Ole since grade school and he has always been a dedicated and well detailed person. I can see in his business he has taken his dedication and knowledge and is very consistent with his clients. I appreciate how he learns a lot of different techniques for chiropractic and wouldn't know what I would do without him. #1 Chiropractor office in the Des Moines area, no doubt!!!"

Carol T.Ankeny

"I met Dr. Ole through the Ankeny Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. I subsequently met his lovely wife and found them both to be respectable, friendly, and attentive young people. I'd not been to a chiropractor for some time, but I knew then that when it was time, I was going to go see Dr. Ole. When that day came, I found every attribute that I've described in Dr. Ole, and can now add: professional, knowledgeable, and reassuring. I highly recommend Dr. Ole for many reasons, but bottom line is if you hurt, he's going to make sure he works with you in whatever timeframe it takes to send you home feeling completely healed of your ailment. Thanks Dr. O, you're the best!"

Julie W. Des Moines

"I can't say enough about Dr. Olson's care. I've seen chiropractors for 15 years and often the treatments each time look the same. I love the variety of services he offers. His treatment and knowledge of sports injuries is remarkable; and I see marked improvement whenever I seek his care."

Dustin B.Pella

"I have known Dr. Ole for over 10 years and he has always been a dedicated and caring individual who you can always count on. I have recommended my family and athletes under my care to utilitze his services and experitise in ART (Active Release Technique) and I will continue to do so. Please consider Dr. Olson, and Optimal Health for all of your orthopedic treatment needs if you are in the greater Des Moines Area."

Beth V.Des Moines

"Dr. Ole Olson has my complete respect as a chiropractor. He honestly assesses and recommends only treatments that he deems necessary, listens, and makes absolutely certain your issues are resolved. This integrity and trustworthiness has earned my appreciation and our family's chiropractic health and wellness business. I first met Dr. Olson in 2010, and was impressed with his wit and personality, and now am very pleased with his chiropractic practice as well. I highly recommend him to anyone."

Brett B.Ankeny

"I've been to Dr. Ole numerous times over the past few years, and he does a great job targeting the issue and using the appropriate method to help me get well again. I'm always impressed with his dedication to researching the latest in chiropractic techniques and utilizing all-natural methods. I highly recommend Dr. Ole."

Alana K.Newton

"Dr. Olson listens really well, which is rare in the medical field. He is very knowledge in many areas, so he doesn't just treat the pain, he fixes the problem, too."

Dr. Joel KirschDetroit, MI

"If I ever have a patient move to the state of Iowa, I would send them to Dr Olson in a heartbeat. I wish our offices were closer so we could collaborate more often. Dr. Olson is as good as it gets!"

Barb H.Granger

"I started coming to see Dr Olsen after rotator cuff surgery on my shoulder. I was still having a lot of pain after 6 months and regular physical therapy. Since I began treatment with Dr Olsen, I have had dramatic results; I can now swim and do most any regular movements with my shoulder that used to cause me pain. I am nearly pain free and my shoulder strength has increased significantly. I would recommend him to everyone."


"Dr. Ole desires the best health for his patients. He goes after the cause of the problem rather than just putting a band aid on the symptom. IN short order my pain was gone and did not need surgery. He works with you and helps get a lifestyle that is healthy for you."

Dianne B.Des Moines

"I suffered for six (6) months with knee and leg pain. I went to four other chiropractors and doctors with no help in relieving the pain. I then found Dr. Ole Olson, and after my first treatment with him, my pain had started to diminish. I was completely pain free after only four treatments total from Dr. Olson. I now visit him a few times a year for maintenance to my good health."

Carol D.Elkhart

"Dr. Ole is GREAT!! He has helped me in so many ways, I can't express enough about him here. His Acupuncture is super, chiropractic is tops! Very personable, Christian values, family man. Dr. Ole has guided me with exercise, dietary needs, pain management, and business help. I would say HE IS THE BEST CHIROPRACTOR I HAVE EVER BEEN TO & I have been seeing one since I was 21!! Keep up the excellent work Dr. O!!! THANKS SO MUCH!!"

Deb F.Ankeny

"Dr. Ole is a great chiropractor who is always seeking out more education and knowledge to better help his patients! I would highly recommend him to anyone!"

Amy K.Polk City

"There hasn't been a visit to Ole's office where I have left without learning something new about my health and feeling better. He is passionate and caring. I appreciate his Christian values and integrity as a doctor, small business owner, husband and father of 2. He's Ankeny's chiropractic gem!"

Teri K.Des Moines

"The level of care and concern that Dr. Olson provides is above and beyond that of most. My husband woke up not able to move his neck with pain in the shoulder areas. I called Dr. Olson and although it was his day off, he met my husband at the clinic to treat him. This kind of service is rare these days. Thank you Dr. Olson!"

Dawn G.Ankeny

"Dr. Olson has done wonders for me! As a wife, mother of 2 young children, who has a FT job and a running addiction I am able to do all these things w/ the excellent chiropractic care from Dr Olson. In him I found the natural treatment of the body I was looking for and have learned how the body parts interact and connect. No matter the ailment, Dr Olson not only fixes me up, but gives me the long term treatment I need to stay on the road, which makes me a very happy person."
