About Dr. Olson

Chiropractic Physician
01.
Early years
Kaleb Olson, DC was born and raised in north central Iowa in a rural town with a population of less than 250 people. Growing up Dr. Olson attended three different high schools but not because his family ever moved, but rather because the rural schools needed to keep consolidating to stay open. He graduated high school in 2014 from North Union in Armstrong, Iowa. His time there was spent playing sports, being involved in choral music, and working for a farmer during the summers.
02.
Undergrad
After graduating from North Union, Dr. Olson went on to attend the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa. There he majored in Biology, eventually earning his Bachelors of Arts in Biology and a certificate in Entrepreneurship. Dr. Olson was enrolled in a Pre-Chiropractic program affiliated with Palmer College of Chiropractic. This allowed him to move onto his graduate studies after only three years of undergraduate college. Those three years were spent being involved with college ministry, some sporting event attendance, lots of fun memories with an ever expanding pool of friends, and his participation in the University of Northern Iowa’s Varsity Men’s Glee club. This had the greatest impact on him. The UNI Varsity Men’s Glee club travels the globe bringing music to lift up and inspire all those who hear it. Dr. Olson was lucky enough to travel with them in 2016 to Iceland and Norway for the Glee Club’s 19th european tour.

Chiropractic School
Fast-forward to July of 2017 when Dr. Olson began his graduate studies at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. It was during his time attending Palmer that he and his now wife, Kara, tied the knot. Dr. Olson was involved in many extracurricular activities while at Palmer. The Motion Palpation club was a large part of his involvement there, along with the Center for Business Development where Dr. Olson was hired as a Business Ambassador to serve as a liaison between the student body and the Center. He went on to become a teacher’s assistant for the diagnosis department as well as a radiology intern in the clinical radiology department. During the last trimester at Palmer College, Dr. Olson participated in the preceptorship program which allowed him to intern off-campus with a Doctor of Chiropractic. This time was spent with Dr. Christopher Renze of Renze Chiropractic Clinic, PC in Ankeny, Iowa. During his time there, Dr. Olson learned invaluable lessons from Dr. Renze and his wonderful and caring staff, Ginger and Denise.

Currently
Dr. Olson and his wife Kara recently moved to and currently live in Des Moines. They have already enjoyed getting to know the area greatly. During his free time Dr. Olson likes to spend time outdoors including hunting and fishing, lifting weights at Altoona Campus, and studying new things online about his many other hobbies. Too many if you ask Kara. Dr. Olson and his wife also enjoy watching new tv shows and movies together on Kara’s days off. Dr. Olson is very passionate about chiropractic and helping others. He decided that he wanted to be a chiropractor in eighth grade. He is zealous for learning and will make anybody that comes into the clinic feel like they are in the right place.

What they're saying.

After dealing with back and sciatica pain for almost a year I thought this was just my life now. Then I found Dr. Olson. I'm feeling so much better just 3 weeks after first meeting him and I'm back to rock climbing with my friends! I recommend anyone who wants to get back to their lives to give his treatments a shot.

Why choose us?

When choosing your healthcare services consider the price, convenience, and invasiveness of the treatment. For neuromusculoskeletal conditions, chiropractic is arguably the best in all of these categories. Just like any profession, all chiropractors differ in their ways to assessment and treatment. If you have had a poor experience with chiropractic in the past, we apologize but do not give up on the treatment as a whole. There is most likely the right practitioner out there for you. Also, if you have been a chiropractic patient in the past and are looking for a new doctor for any potential reason, please consider us.

As an establishment and small town clinic, we aim to serve Grimes and Des Moines area families and athletes. Dr. Olson is a recent graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, and as such, he is up-to-date with all the evidenced-based clinical assessment methods and treatment procedures. Dr. Olson creates individualized care plans based on your presentation. He is equipped with specialized training and offers alternative techniques to other practitioners in the area.

Some examples include being certified in McKenzie Diagnosis and Therapy parts A and B, being listed on the Motion Palpation referral list, multiple different soft tissue approaches including instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), extracurricular training and minor certifications in extremity adjusting, and more.
