Dr. Greg Olsen
Your Lake Forest Chiropractor
“Hi my name is Liz Wolf. I have been coming to Dr. Olsen for a couple of months now.
I came to Dr. Olsen after searching and praying for a longtime for someone that could help me with my chronic pain. I found Dr. Olsen on youtube, for fibromyalgia.
I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia eight years ago and I have tried all kinds of treatment. I have gone to physical therapy, acupuncture, other chiropractors and I never received any relief. Dr. Olsen was able to pin point my issues and his treatments have been such a relief. I am able to do more things with my family, I can sleep better, and that is just the beginning!
I am VERY thankful to Dr. Olsen for what he does; he is the most kind and considerate doctor and because of that, I will continue to see him as long as I can.”
- Liz Wolf
“I have been seeing Dr. Olsen for over 15 years and he has helped me in so many ways!!
I previously wore an orthotic lift in one shoe because previous chiropractors told me my right leg was sorter then my left- it isn’t—I, as Dr. Olsen helped me find out, just need continuous adjustments and now my legs are fine and I am not spending more money, on orthotics I don’t need.
With Dr. Olsen’s help, I, with the aid of a few supplements, cleansing (or detox) and Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) has really helped me clear out the baggage that I have gathered throughout my life that was lodged and stuck in different places my the body which severely affected my health.
There are probably so many other concerns I may have had but I cannot remember! I can’t voice enough praises about him, he is seriously a miracle worker!
A word of advice: you can’t want/have results or everything “fixed” in one or two visits. Chiropractic care is a long term investment BUT it DEFINITELY is worth EVERY penny!!”

“When I came to Dr. Olsen, I was a mess! I was taking Motrin 2-3 times a day EVERY day! Now, I do not have to take any medications AND I sleep better too!
As part of my wellness program, I decided to detox (or cleanse), I am currently eating healthier and I FEEL healthier. When I started I was also having trouble asthma. Between my allergist and Dr. Olsen I no longer have to take any asthma medications!!”

“I struggled with lower back pain especially around my menstrual cycle. Dr. Olsen has helped to relieve that pain during that time of the month for me.
In addition, I carry a lot of stress. With Dr. Olsen’s NET treatment it has helped to relieve a lot of my alignments. It is amazing the emotional connections that the body stores as stress and pain. Every time I go and do NET my pain (in a certain area of my body) always decreases or goes away instantly.”
- Jamie H.
“For years I have been trying to lose weight and I tried EVERYTHING and nothing worked. I also, had high blood pressure and was put on medications from another doctor- they made me tired and I literally was barely able go outside or make it to work! I was referred to Dr. Olsen and I was amazed on the results. I lost 20 lbs. in a few weeks and I feel great! I immediately was able to get off of all the medications that I was earlier prescribed and I feel as if I am 18 years old again- I can do things NOW that I couldn’t do before!
I would definitely recommend Dr. Olsen, not only for losing weight- but for any issue you may have. He really makes everything in the body feel right. He and his staff are always pleasant and they really give everyone a positive outlook on life and in getting the results they deserve.”
- Rick M.
“I have been seeing Dr. Olsen for 10 years now and I recommend him to my friends and family. He has helped me with numerous issues such as stiffness in the neck, digestive issues, Carpal Tunnel, balance and flexibility, shoulder and joint injury, Vertigo- causes dizziness and nausea.
I experienced a loss of range in motion in both my neck, shoulder, arm and wrist and he has successfully always been able to help me get it back and then some. Other chiropractors refused to treat me due to the scar tissue but Dr. Olsen treated me and gave me back the functionality of each of these areas.
He has helped treat the numbness in my hands and I really feel that I am getting results and it’s not just temporary, as I have experienced with any other chiropractor in the past.
With my issues with Vertigo he simply treated me and recommended I try yoga and I am amazed with the results!”
- Marlene Z.
“For the past 4 years, I have had chronic fatigue, Neuropathy, painful lymph nodes, all of which a cause for could not be determined by my Kaiser doctors. I had run out of hope of ever feeling like myself again- then I was introduced to Dr. Olsen, who immediately determined where my body and organs needed support and assistance.
First, he had me eliminate coffee, sugar, and excessive exercise, since there had been stress on my adrenal glands and they had been over stimulated for a long period of time; plus a variation of infections he discovered caused stress and imbalance to my entire system. Between those eliminations and his natural treatment of the problem areas through supplements, four months later, I feel really like myself again! I wake up with energy- I have no lymph node pain, the symptoms of neuropathy have been relieved in large part.”

Irritable Bowel Syndrome Treatment and Relief
HEALTH AND HEALING SUCCESS STORY
IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME TREATMENT AND RELIEF
Dr. Olsen was recommended to me by a friend who was helped by him. I needed help with my digestive system as I suffered with bouts of diarrhea for the last couple of years and have been losing weight (which I didn’t need to).
After treatments over 2 to 3 months, I’m finally well, happy and grateful.

Anxiety Relief and Treatment
Health and Healing Success Story
ANXIETY 97% GONE
I struggled a lot with anxiety. I wasn’t sure why because I had never been an anxious person. I didn’t really know what to do. I had tried counseling, but then Dr. Olsen did a presentation at my school. I had anxiety for about 6 months before I came here and now it is 97% gone.
I felt that Dr. Olsen really listened to my concerns and guided me to getting better. I changed my diet and through treatment reduced the anxiety. I would definitely recommend this treatment to others.

Low Back Pain Treatment and Relief
Low Back Pain Completely Went Away
I came to see Dr. Olsen 3 weeks ago for lower back pain-that, no matter what,would not go away. With some twisting, prodding and probing he gave me a diagnosis and providing treatment consisting of a change in diet and a “special” diet supplement. He asked me to try it for a month- Well in less than one week my back pains completely went away- And I even lost a couple of pounds! One Happy Customer!
Chiropractic care and treatment
I wanted you to know how pleased I was with your evaluation of my health and your subsequent treatment. I also want to share that when I first came to your office ,I was skeptical both of what chiropractic care was about and of being “hocked” on a never-ending treatment program. The truth is that I was very impressed with your approach to patient education and care. Moreover, it is obvious that your effort and focus is on making a person right and not on turning them into lifetime patients in need of never-ending treatments. I congratulate you and your staff on your professionalism, courtesy, and genuine concern for the well-being of your patients. Anyone who comes to your office for care will leave having a greater understanding of their total health, and what they need to do to protect and improve it. I would not and will not hesitate to recommend you to my friends and associates.
Sincerely, W. Ron Edde
8 yrs of lower back pain gone
After 8 years of low back pain and multiple excuses I decided to try chiropractic care. On June 24, I married my soulmate and all was perfect… and more relaxed…too relaxing. I guess I had been so wound up with stress that when my life finally came together, my back decided to relax.. and I turned into rubber toy being chew up by fido. I immediately started taking 12 Advil a day. Only later, as a result of Dr. Olsen educating me on my body, did I realize I was only masking the pain. Within a few weeks Dr. Olsen had me sitting, standing, and walking without pain. Oh the simple pleasures! I would recommend Dr. Olsen because he is trained to help you in mind & body.
Chronic whiplash neck pain
I was involved in an auto accident ten years ago that left me with severe whiplash. I initially embraced the traditional method of treating this type of injury (physical therapy, muscle relaxers and pain pills) in hopes of relieving the pain and distress. After spending a year of my time, money and energy the pain was still as intense as the day of the accident. I continued to search for someone who could help me but had little success until a doctor recommended that I “try” Chiropractic treatment. I was somewhat skeptical of this idea, but I also knew from previous experience that traditional treatment failed. I took his recommendation and began Chiropractic treatment. I was surprised to find that the adjustments helped to control the pain. I continued adjustments on an as needed basis until I was introduced to Dr. Olsen. After an intense and thorough evaluation, Dr. Olsen explained the cause of my chronic pain in detail. He used visuals to demonstrate the evolution of the injury over the last ten years. Dr. Olsen described his procedure for treating this type of injury and he charted the course and time frame it would take to achieve the desired results. This chronology of injury, treatment and results had never been discussed with me any of the previous doctors. It made perfect sense. At that point I was completely confident in his capabilities and made a commitment to proceed with his treatment plain. Dr. Olsen has treated me for the several weeks and in this short time I have made substantial progress. Improvement is evident in many areas - range of motion, insomnia, decrease in pain and discomfort, and ultimately improvement in my attitude. I look forward to continuing this healing process so that one day soon I can reclaim my health and ultimately my active lifestyle. I highly recommend Dr. Olsen to all who care about maintaining or restoring their overall health. He is the best at what he does.
Thank you so much for your incredible “healing”, words will never be enough to express my thanks! You’ve given me the belief in myself that everything will be ok ! You are a true healer and I wish you all the success!
Low back pain corrected after finding cause of problem
I would recommend Chiropractic & Applied Kinesiology from Dr. Olsen to anyone wanting improved and optimum health. I had been to several Chiropractor over the past 10 years after finding that my right leg seemed to be shorter than the left. In actuality my legs are the same length, but I had 1st stage degeneration in the curve of my neck, my spine was crooked and my right hip would roll and pull my right leg short, causing lower back pain and decreased mobility. I even wore an orthotic in my right shoe (as instructed by a previous Chiropractor). They all used Chiropractic adjustments to correct the problem, but as soon as I would stop treatment, my problems would return. Dr. Olsen was the first to find the degeneration in my neck. He was also the first to stress the importance of frequent and continued treatment to correct the problems permanently. My treatments began at 3 times a week and now I am receiving treatment only once per month. He was the only one to show me proper stretching exercises to do at home and strongly recommend that I purchase a neck pump for use at home. I no longer wear an orthotic in my shoe, my legs are even, and the normal, natural, healthy curve is returning to my neck. I am truly grateful for Dr. Olsen’s medical expertise as well as his caring & kindness. He genuinely cares about his patients health.
Avid golfer & would take 4 advil just to make it through each round of golf
I had been seeing a Chiropractor to relieve neck and lower back pain for several years but his office location made it inconvenient for me to visit regularly. Basically, I would get adjusted to relieve pain but nothing was being done to correct the underlying problems. I was diagnosed with a “reverse curve” in my neck and experienced pain in my neck and lower back pretty consistently. I am an avid golfer and would take four advil just to make it through each round of golf. I was a mess and my chiropractor was so far away that I couldn’t visit regularly. After two great massages, I though I would try Dr. Olsen. After all, I was going through the advil regularly and I felt I was too young to have so much back trouble. Dr. Olsen confirmed the “reverse curve” in my neck (stage 2 vertebral subluxation complex) and we immediately started a program of regular adjustments and traction to correct the problem. After the first week, I noticed a great improvement. I was driving on the freeway, I turned to check the lane beside me, and I could not believe the range of motion I had in my neck-WITH NO PAIN ! I guess I had gotten used to expecting a twinge whenever I checked the lanes! I’ve been visiting Dr. Olsen for only a short time (six weeks) but the improvement has been dramatic. I can’t remember the last time I took advil. Recently I discovered that I am pregnant with twins and I just know that my pregnancy will be more comfortable due to Dr. Olsen’s care. I feel healthier, happier, and do not have any neck pain! Best of all my golf swing is as smooth as ever! I would recommend Dr. Olsen to anyone who is serious about improving their quality of life. Many thanks to Dr. Olsen for helping me re-discover how life is supposed to feel-pain free! I’m looking forward to seeing that curve re-appear in my neck someday soon!
Fatigue & joint pain for many years
I first came in to see Dr. Olsen for a general check-up. I had seen other chiropractors in the past for regular adjustments and bouts of fatigue and joint pain that I had had for many years but stopped seeing them because the symptoms never went away. After a few visits with Dr. Olsen the bouts of fatigue are dramatically reduced to almost nothing and the joint soreness is gone. I now have more energy than I know what to do with and being a weightlifter my workouts have increased to a new level. Dr. Olsen not only make you feel better but also teaches you why he is doing things to your body and shows you how to make yourself feel better on your own. I will be going through therapy with Dr. Olsen for a long time knowing that each day I will feel better physically and mentally. I am extremely grateful to him and I would recommend him to anyone. He is the best.
