Dr. Otra Olver, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Lakewood Galleria

Dr. Otra Lee Olver DC, the new part time clinician at The Joint Chiropractic in Lakewood. I was born in San Jose, CA and earned my DC from SCUHS in 2011. I have a wife I met in college and a small dog I got from the pound. I enjoy practicing BJJ and am an above average cook. I have worked for several Joint franchises over two years but have mostly been employed by the chiropractic college I graduated from as an assistant professor in the anatomy lab and physical exam classes. I love working as a chiropractic clinician and feel that the best part is the ability to help relieve the pain in my patients. The worst part is the look in a patient’s face when I am explaining that I am unable to help them with their particular malady. I am very passionate about helping people and hope that I may be of good service to my patients in my current position as a clinician at The Joint Chiropractic Lakewood.

While in Fiji, Dr. Magafas was able to treat and help over 100 patients in need of neck and spine pain relief. This taught her a lot about the benefits of chiropractic and inspired Dr. Magafas to continue to educate her own Whittier community on the benefits of routine chiropractic care.
