Dr. Ozar studied health and science at the University of Arizona, earning his Bachelor of Arts degree. Upon his desire to combine physical therapy and chiropractic, he enhanced his focus on chiropractic rehabilitation, earning a professional degree from the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic. After starting his practice in 1996 at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, Dr. Ozar further developed formulating his philosophy of healing for a few more years. I’m hindsight, Dr. Ozar realized that whenever he and fellow patients had been undergoing rehabilitation, they would bounce through multiple facilities. The desire to develop a one stop shop, is how Dr. Ozar founded the Beverly Hills Posture & Rehabilitation Institute in 1999, and now becoming OWH.
