About Olympic Sports & Spine Rehabilitation

Our History

Olympic Sports & Spine Rehabilitation was founded in 1984 by William (Bill) O’Grady, PT, DPT, OCS, COMT, DAAPM, FAAOMPT. Our company has grown from one small clinic on Meridian Avenue in Puyallup to our current six clinics serving Lakewood, University Place, Spanaway, East Tacoma, Puyallup and the South Hill area.

In 2006 the torch was passed with the sale of the company to Michael Tollan, PT, OCS, COMT, FAAOMPT and Vern J. Essenberg, MPT, OCS, COMT, FAAOMPT.  Brian Thacker, DPT, OCS, SCS, COMT, C.Ped. joined Olympic Sports & Spine Rehabilitation as a partner and co-owner in 2013. Together, Michael, Vern and Brian manage the company while continuing as treating clinicians in their practice.
