Dr. Osten married his wife Amy in 1996, the year before he started chiropractic school. They met working at Happy Joe's Pizza and Ice Cream Parlor in Dubuque, IA after high school and attended the University of Iowa together. After graduating from UofI and getting married, they moved to Davenport, IA so that Dr. Osten could attend Chiropractic school at Palmer College of Chiropractic.
While attending school in Davenport, Dr. Osten and Amy had their first child, Ariana, in July of 1999. She was adjusted for the first time when she was just a few hours old and has been adjusted ever since. Dr. Osten, Amy and Ariana moved to Omaha, NE in 2001 to begin their new life and practice in South Omaha. Under the wing of Dr. Jack Hill, Dr. Osten learned the business of chiropractic.
In 2003, the Osten's were happy to welcome their son Jacob into their family. Jacob again was adjusted when he was just hours old. Both Ariana and Jacob have a keen sense of when their body is "not quite right" and they need to have dad take care of them.
Ariana has always been very active in sports, playing soccer, basketball and began playing volleyball in 7th grade. She gave up everything to follow her love of volleyball and now plays year round. If you ever are wondering what we do on weekends, you will probably find us in the stands of a volleyball game and Joel probably has a camera strapped around his neck.
Jacob has played about every sport and seems to like them all. He started Tae Kwon Do at an early age and became a black belt by the age of 10. Most recently he is talking about starting up soccer again, but is currently loving Trampoline and Tumbling at Airborne Academy. We love watching him flip on the trampoline so much we bought one for the backyard.
Our hobbies are our children. They keep us busy and will do so for years to come.
