Ken Olson, physical therapist here at Northern Rehab, recently presented on the treatment of neck pain at the 2016 Annual American Physical Therapy Association Orthopaedic Section Meeting held in Atlanta, Georgia. Olson was invited to be part of a panel of internationally recognized experts in the treatment of neck pain, and the focus of his presentation was on treating patients with neck pain with mobility deficits using a combination of manual therapy techniques and specific therapeutic exercises.  Olson also provided a hands-on instructional lab session in manual therapy techniques of the neck for the course participants at the meeting.  

With over 27 years of clinical experience combined with fellowship training in manual physical therapy, Olson has developed a national and international reputation as an expert clinician, educator, and author in the examination and management of spinal and TMJ disorders.  Olson is Board certified in orthopaedic physical therapy and highly respected in the field of manual therapy of the spine. He is also an adjunct faculty member at NIU and Marquette University's doctor of physical therapy programs. Olson maintains a full time clinical physical therapy practice in the Northern Rehab DeKalb Resource Parkway location and is available to accept new patients with joint and muscle conditions of the spine and extremities.   

Should I ask my doctor to refer me if I think I may need therapy?

Definitely. When you have a problem you think may be helped by physical therapy ask your doctor or give us a call and we will help you to determine if this is a problem that may be helped by physical therapy.

Your Right to Choose

The decision of where you go to receive treatment is
yours. If you have a specific therapist or practice you
would like to go to, you should let your doctor or
insurance company know this. Not all physical
therapists or practices are the same and the choice
of your provider is yours.
