Dr. Karl Oliger
Dr. Karl Oliger earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from LifeUniversity in Marietta, Georgia. During his graduate studies, Dr. Oliger’s primary focus was on the integration of chiropractic care in terms of helping people reach their optimal potential. He has extensive experience in working with all populations – infants to elderly. Dr. Oliger particularly enjoys working with children, moms-to-be, as well as athletes. In terms of working with mothers and children, Dr. Oliger has been trained in specific pediatric adjusting as well as the Webster Technique. This technique helps restore the pregnant mother’s pelvis to it’s correct position therefore allowing the baby to lie in the best possible position for birth.
In 1999, he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Secondary Education and Spanish at North DakotaStateUniversity in Fargo, North Dakota. His fluency in Spanish allowed Dr. Oliger to be very active with the international community and Habitat for Humanity throughout his studies at NDSU and Bismarck State College, where he earned a degree in Criminal Justice. As part of his curriculum, Dr. Oliger spent six months in Guadalajara, Mexico studying at the Instituto Tecnologico de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM). While there, Dr. Oliger was involved with many cross-cultural programs including some volunteer work at the social services department in Manzanillo, Mexico.
Besides Mexico, Dr. Oliger has lived in and traveled to several other countries in North and Central America and Asia. In the course of his travels, Dr. Oliger was able to experience the trials of being a stranger in a strange land. He also was blessed by people who were willing to help out an outsider.
Dr. Oliger has always known he wanted to work serving people. He has previously worked as a correctional and law enforcement officer as well as a teacher. He enjoyed these professions however he knew something was missing. After being injured in an auto accident, Dr. Oliger was given the advice by his physician to see a chiropractor. His doctor told him that “medications would only mask the pain” and that “a chiropractor could fix” the problem. After a week, the previous six months of pain faded and Dr. Oliger was hooked! He was able to continue coaching soccer, cross country and wrestling which he has continued to do over the past ten years.
When not working with his patients, Dr. Oliger can be found spending time with his wife, Stephanie and his three children, Julian, Carson, and Rhylee. He continues to be involved with the youth in the local community and volunteering with his church.
