Meet Dr. Olin. Severe migraines would incapacitate him and leave him feeling battered and bruised for days before he turned to chiropractic care for treatment – and became a chiropractor himself.
“I was 18 years old and had just completed my first year of university. During the summer of 1990, I began to experience the debilitating effects of migraine headaches. After my first episode, which resulted in a visit to a local emergency room, I was advised to regularly carry Tylenol 3’s and Gravol in the event I began to experience a migraine.
Through that summer I continued to have migraine headaches. When the aura occurred I would take a Tylenol 3 and Gravol and go to bed. When I’d wake up I would have a bruised head sensation for about 72 hours. During a migraine episode I would sleep through an entire day. I realized this could not continue.
A health care professional advised me to consider visiting a chiropractor. I received my first chiropractic treatment that summer. Those treatments fully resolved my migraine problem.
After such a positive experience, and as a university student interested in pursuing a healthcare career, I started to seriously consider the idea of studying to become a Chiropractor once I completed my BA in Science.
After seven years of intensive education, I graduated as a chiropractor in 1997. Now 19 years into my chiropractic career and 26 years as a chiropractic patient, I continue to enjoy what our profession has to offer our patients each and every day.”
