Dr. Olivia Johnson is from Wahoo, Nebraska. Growing up, she was passionate about athletics, whether it was playing or coaching. After a back injury, she found the benefit of chiropractic care for not only injuries but also for performance. This holistic approach to healing and wellness is what inspired her to become a chiropractor herself. She first graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Alabama with a degree in Human Performance/Exercise Science and a minor in nutrition. During her time at ‘Bama, she continued working with her passion for sports on the recruiting team for the Crimson Tide's prospective student athletes. She then went on to earn her Doctorate at Logan University, graduating Summa Cum Laude, where she was the founder and president of the Soft Tissue club. She spent her time in school attending many extra courses and seminars in order to have the tools necessary to treat patients with a wide array of problems. This includes working towards her certification to practice acupuncture, something she enjoyed studying while on an educational exchange trip to China. Her final year of schooling was spent completing an externship at Scott Air Force Base, working with our military men and women.
In her free time Dr. Liv enjoys finding new running trails, cooking new healthy recipes (sometimes a few not-so-healthy ones), attempting to improve her golf game, studying the latest research, and traveling. She is new to Lincoln so if you have any must-sees, must-dos, and must-eats, let her know!
