Dr. Joe Olofsson is a Physical Therapist located in Ann Arbor, Michigan with a passion for helping people stay in motion. He is a specialist in Orthopedic Physical Therapy and believes that exercise is one of the strongest tools for promoting change in wellness, strength, mental health, and injury prevention.


His mission is to keep people doing the activities they love and away from pills, injections, or unnecessary surgery. 

With over 8+ years experience helping clients train for longevity, Dr. Olofsson is committed to helping his community reduce injuries, and improve their vitality through a transparent and optimistic approach. 

After working in a spine-specific clinic that managed neck and lower back pain as a “last resort” for some people – he truly discovered how important lifestyle, strength training and whole-body wellness is to preventing injuries and pain. 

Why he started OLO Physical Therapy & Wellness: 

After many years of working in diverse physical therapy clinics around the country, he recognized many pitfalls in our medical system. Not enough 1-on-1 care, rushed appointments, unattainable demands from insurance, and pigeon-holed care plans were just a few of them. 


Dr. Olofsson knew his clients deserved better, and launched OLO Physical Therapy & Wellness in 2020.  

OLO was built to strive for
