Although they are two distinct corporations, they work together to provide a comprehensive integrated care experience. Conditions such as peripheral neuropathy, chronic joint and spine pain can benefit from treatment such as bioelectrical therapy, analgesic and/or supplement injection and regenerative medicine treatments. These medical procedures are complemented by physical medicine treatments such as chiropractic adjustments, skilled manual therapy, nonsurgical spinal decompression, laser therapy and physical rehabilitation. Our integrated practice approach allows us to provide comprehensive treatment to help patients get relief with lasting results!

Lee Shelley | Nutritional Therapist
Lee Shelley, is our resident Nutritional Therapist. Her professional career has been very diverse. Growing up in South Carolina, she became a Dental Hygienist. Shortly afterward she met her husband and moved to Seattle. She practiced for several years as a Dental Hygienist in different cities in South Carolina and Washington State. Many years later she became a Licensed Midwife and founded Puget Sound Birth Center in Kirkland, WA. It remains a thriving birth center even today having served thousands of families since 1996.
Some years after the birth of her daughter, Gracie, she became interested in Nutrition and Functional Medicine. She had the personal goal of getting off all pharmaceutical medications. That led to many years of study in these fields, and with the help of a very talented Naturopathic Doctor she was able to gradually stop all medications.
Lee then pursued the study of Functional Blood Chemistry, Functional Endocrinology, Thyroid disorders and Neurotransmitter imbalances. She rounded that out by getting certified as a Nutritional Therapist.
Her role in our office is to investigate the patient’s metabolic function/dysfunction to assess its contribution to their health concerns. We know that pain in the body usually has many contributors — not usually a single cause such as spinal misalignment or disc protrusion. Metabolic imbalances can have profound effects on pain, fatigue, weight and mental function. These are the metabolic considerations of care at our office.
Lee uses numerous laboratory tests, metabolic questionnaires and diet history to assess a patient’s metabolic function. She is then able to guide the patient through nutritional and lifestyle changes as well as utilizing nutritional supplements to make profound health changes. Lee has the rare blend of personal experience, extensive knowledge and genuine concern for her patients.
"Now I can go up and down stairs, ride my bike and I’m back to hiking!"
“For a year and a half I had sharp pain in both my knees. Going up and down stairs was very painful, and I could no longer run. Before coming to Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy I worked with an Orthopedic doctor, a Spine Specialist, my General Medical doctor, a Physical Therapist, Massage Therapist and a Podiatrist.”
“I started to notice a difference within the first couple months of treatment. Now I can go up and down stairs, ride my bike and I’m back to hiking! My outlook on life also has improved. The realization that I’m not restricted due to a decline in a health is a big relief. The staff is very personable, friendly and caring. Every department knows how to work together as part of the team.”

"Within the first month at Olympic, I felt 75% better and have feeling back in my feet!"
“Six months before coming to Olympic, the sharp, shooting pain and numbness in my feet were so bad that I legitimately investigated the cost of artificial feet. I went to at least 4 different treatments before coming here.”
“Within the first month at Olympic I felt 75% better and have feeling back in my feet! I can now sleep at night, work a full day, and go up and down stairs without pain. With the relief that I now have, I can join my wife in social activities, cook and my mood has greatly improved. The treatment was specifically tailored to my issues and the team at Olympic was willing to try different treatments to see what would work for me.”
– Jaylen P., Lake Stevens
“While finding relief with my peripheral neuropathy, I was also able to find improvement in my posture.”
“For the past 3-4 years I have had pain in my feet while walking, and at night my feet felt very hot. It was so weird! I could not comfortably walk in my work shoes. Once coming to Olympic it took only 3 weeks to find relief. My feet feel more supple, and I can feel them at night without burning. I can walk around far more comfortably and sleep much better. The treatment at Olympic was very thorough and more varied than what I had seen before. While finding relief with my peripheral neuropathy, I was also able to find improvement in my posture. The team at Olympic helped me realize I need to be more conscious of my posture throughout the day. I now stand up straighter and can walk without pain!”
– Jeff L., Mukilteo
"After five weeks I started noticing big improvements."
“For the past ten years I’ve had pain in my toes that progressed to my feet. I went to several different doctors, my General Medical Doctor, an Orthopedists, and a Neurologist, I was diagnosed with idiopathic peripheral neuropathy and told there was no treatment or cure. The symptoms were so bad it was like walking on broken glass.”
“I heard an ad on KIRO radio. After five weeks I started noticing big improvements. Now I can walk on the grass and carpet and stay on my feet longer than I’ve been able to in years. This summer I re-designed our back yard. I never would have attempted that before treatment. I love to golf and have been able to get on the course a lot more this summer. The staff is awesome; they helped me understand how to continue treatment at home. Their treatment program is thorough, and they spend more time with their patients than other clinics I’ve been to.”
