Dr. Chelsie Englund DC, CACCP – West Point Office

Dr. Chelsie grew up in Grand Island, Nebraska. She received her Bachelors of Science degree from Briar Cliff University in Sioux City, IA where she also


continued her athletic career as a participant on the volleyball team. She then continued her chiropractic education at the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. At Palmer, Dr. Chelsie served as a Diagnosis Teaching Assistant and Clinical Radiology Technician Assistant. She also enjoyed volunteering her time serving as a teaching assistant in the Pediatric classes. She currently enjoys playing coed volleyball, running with her dog, and being with family, especially her daughter Londyn. Dr. Chelsie takes great pride and joy in her career as a chiropractor helping others get their lives back and restoring health! 

Dr. Chelsie's chiropractic story began as a high school athlete, when she was unable to run track or long jump without severe low back pain. She had exhausted all conservative treatment routes but nothing helped her as well as chiropractic care did! With a few chiropractic adjustments she was back on her feet and able to run and jump with little to no pain! From that day forward, Dr. Chelsie decided she too wanted to help and serve others through chiropractic. 

Dr. Chelsie uses many different forms of chiropractic care tailored to each individual. Among those techniques, she is certified in Webster Technique for Prenatal care and has completed her full certification in Pediatric and Family care (CACCP - Certified by the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics).  However, Dr. Chelsie loves seeing patients of ALL ages! Although Dr Chelsie has always had a passion for helping the little ones, it wasn't until she did her chiropractic mission trip in Fiji during her studies at Palmer that she truly fell in love with chiropractic care for kids. There she learned the true power of what chiropractic could do for children and decided to extend her education through the ICPA and is now a CACCP meaning she is certified in Pediatric, Prenatal and Family chiropractic by the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics. (See the Chiropractic & Kids section for more information on how chiropractic can help YOUR kids). This also allows Dr Chelsie to fulfill her passion with the most up to date knowledge in taking care of the pregnant population during the entire perinatal period. 

Dr. Chelsie is Nationally Board Certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (Part I-IV & Physiotherapy) as well as licensed by the Nebraska Board of Chiropractic and is a member of the Nebraska Chiropractic Association. She is currently also a member of the ICA and International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and is the NE District Representative for Palmer College of Chiropractic. 

Dr. Chelsie would be honored to serve you and your family and is available in the West Point office 6 days a week!

Dr. Kasey Oliver DC – Norfolk and Neligh Office

Hello! My name is Kasey Oliver. I would like to introduce myself as a new chiropractor in the Norfolk, Nebraska area. I recently graduated with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College in June of 2021. I am excited to be a part of the Creekwood Chiropractic team!

Prior to attending Palmer College, I was a medical device sales rep for Johnson & Johnson where I sold medical equipment for spinal surgeries. The opportunity to see spinal surgeries in the operating room was a breathtaking experience. During this time, I realized my true calling is to help patients with conservative care before opting to invasive measures such as surgery.

I attended Coastal Carolina University for undergrad where I played softball. As a former collegiate athlete, I am enthusiastic about working with other athletes and their physical needs. However, while at Palmer College I was introduced to my passion of family chiropractic and working with pediatrics and expectant mothers.

When I am not at the office, I love to spend quality time with my boyfriend and family, workout, watch sports, and travel! I was born in Savannah, Georgia and I have lived in eight different states in my twenty-eight years! I love warm weather and anywhere with a great view is my favorite place to be. I would love to meet you all—please stop by Creekwood Chiropractic and say hello! 

I am Nationally Board Certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (Part I-IV & Physiotherapy) as well as licensed by the Nebraska Board of Chiropractic and am a member of the Nebraska Chiropractic Association. I am also currently a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. 


Dr. Mike Rivera DC – Neligh and West Point Office


Hello, my name is Michael D. Rivera Jr. and I am a 2021 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.  I also graduated from Southwest Minnesota State University in 2017 with a Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Science with a minor in coaching.  While attending Southwest Minnesota State University I was apart of both the football and track teams from 2013-2017.

I grew up in Windom, Minnesota, a small town in southwest Minnesota.  I chose to serve the Norfolk area because I have family here and it is very similar to the area I grew up in.  Some hobbies I enjoy doing are working out, going to concerts, watching football, and spending time with friends and family. 

Chiropractic has helped me throughout my life and athletic career.  Injuries such as back spasms and concussions have put me on the sidelines in my career and chiropractic treatment helped me get back on the field faster.  I suffered my last concussion in 2017 and wasn't able to move my head and neck for over 3 days without pain.  I was able to see a chiropractor after the 3rd day and immediately saw results from the treatment.  From this experience, I wanted to use chiropractic to help others.

While attending Palmer College of Chiropractic, I learned a variety of techniques and orthopedic tests that can help with many issues patients may have.  My biggest goal of using chiropractic treatments is to help restore pain free movement to individuals.  If we are able to achieve pain free movement then we are able to help with everyday life. 

I am Nationally Board Certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (Part I-IV & Physiotherapy).  I am also licensed by the Nebraska Board of Chiropractic and a member of the Nebraska Chiropractic Association.

I am very excited to grow as an individual and chiropractor in the Norfolk Area.
