Drs. Charles & Aimee Oliver
Dr. Charles Oliver
Dr. Charles Oliver earned his Master’s of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and qualified as an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist by the American Physical Therapy Association Board of Physical Therapy Specialties several years later.
He owned his own physical therapy office in New Braunfels, Texas for five years before deciding to pursue his chiropractic degree. Dr. Oliver earned his Doctor of Chiropractic from Parker College of Chiropractic.
In his spare time Dr. Oliver tries to live the healthy lifestyle he preaches to his patients. This means being as active as he can be, playing tennis with his youngest daughter, running sprints super fast (for a really old guy), lifting weights, and hiking with his wife.
Combining the Best of Both Disciplines
“I love physical therapy and I really enjoyed helping my patients” he says. “But the more I learned about how effective chiropractic was, I knew that I had to learn these techniques as well. That is when I started looking into chiropractic. I found that it gives me an exponentially greater number of tools to help my patients. Now I can use gentle chiropractic techniques along with physical therapy techniques. Together, this combination delivers truly amazing results.”
He Wrote the Book….
Dr. Oliver’s enthusiasm for helping patients motivated him to write a textbook on manual therapy. Manual therapy is the “hands-on” care provided by chiropractors, physical therapists, and osteopaths. “This book has been a passion of mine for some time. It is the combination of chiropractic and physical therapy; a subject that has never been covered before.” Click on the banner in the left column to order your copy.

I originally found Dr. Oliver when I was looking for someone to help me with ongoing foot issues. As a marching band director I had been referred to a podiatrist and told that I might be looking at surgery. I wasn’t convinced and wanted to try dealing with any underlying issues first so I went looking for a chiropractor who was also a physical therapist. I was convinced that spinal alignment was part of the issue and that the podiatrist would send me to PT first.
When I met with Dr. Oliver and he evaluated my issue he was very honest that he had not treated this particular issue before and that he was willing to work through a course of treatment to get my hip issues straightened out and work on my feet at the same time and see what we could do. That course of treatment was successful and I went on my merry way very happy to have avoided surgery.
Three years later I’m back and addressing a different set of issues that I have been ignoring for a long time. By the time I got to Dr. Oliver I was in so much pain that I was struggling to do my job. Dr. Oliver not only evaluated my structural condition but my overall nutrition and health. He laid out a plan for treatment that addressed not just the underlying structural issues but also helped me to identify the nutritional issues and other health issues that I need to be addressing. We’re well into my treatment plan and I can honestly say that I feel better than I have in years. I’m committed to doing what I need to to feel better and so thankful to find Dr. Oliver and his staff!
