The outcomes Olson and Kurey seek are improved performance—whether that be improved mobility for an elderly person recovering from a fall or surgery, or the star high school athlete trying to recover faster from a sprained ankle.

“I have worked with more high school athletes on performance enhancement things,” Olson said of his recent activities. This summer he will be teaching a summer school class in New Holstein on athletic performance enhancement, working with youths in areas such as agility, footwork and speed. “I think kids need to occasionally step away from the bench press stuff,” he said.

Back-in-Action’s clientele at its New Holstein clinic has continued to grow to the point where hours have expanded to Mondays and Wednesdays, noon to 7 p. m.; Tuesdays and Thursdays, 7 a. m. to 5 p. m.; and Fridays or by appointment as needed. “I’ve seen people on Saturdays, Sundays, at their house,” Olson said.

“Word-of-mouth for us is tremendous,” he added. “I’m humbled by anyone who passes along those conversations. I’ve been unbelievably impressed with the people out here. I’ve gotten to know a lot of people and made a lot of friends. These are hard working, dedicated, good people. Their passion for wellness is good, but sometimes the direction they take is bad so they come to see me.”
