Dr. Sara Trefnoff
Dr. Trefnoff is a wellness-based Chiropractor focusing on a holistic approach to health. She grew up in western Pennsylvania, where she was highly involved with athletics and outdoor activities. Her competitive edge in soccer, and her willingness to leave it all on the field, often left her injured, and named the “most likely to be on crutches” of her class. Through every injury she grew to appreciate the health system and decided that she wanted to be a part of it. Dr. Trefnoff graduated from Wheeling Jesuit University in 2013 with a degree in Pre Med Biology, and moved that Summer to Davenport, IA to begin her Chiropractic career. While attending Palmer College of Chiropractic Dr. Trefnoff joined the oldest Chiropractic organization in the world, Sigma Phi Chi, chartered in 1914 by Mable Heath Palmer, D.C. Her Presidency in the organization gave her the unique opportunity to focus on the fundamentals of Chiropractic outside of the classroom, and to teach new generations the Philosophy of Chiropractic. Dr. Trefnoff also spent time out of the classroom studying low force techniques such as Activator, and S.O.T (Sacro Occipital Technique). During Dr. Trefnoff’s clinical rotation, she worked with a wide variety of patients, from newborn babies to the aging older generation. Dr. Trefnoff spent the last trimester of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Portland, Oregon. During this time, she worked with the professional athletes of the Portland Steel, and upon graduation continued to provide care to athletes in Western Pennsylvania. Recently, Dr. Trefnoff has been focusing on family care and is working through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. Through their program she obtained certification in the Webster’s Technique with Dr. Jeanne Ohm. When she is not in the office, Dr. Trefnoff and her fiancé enjoy the outdoors with their dog Gambit, hiking, camping, or at the beach. Dr. Trefnoff believes to restore health we must restore the Nervous System, after all it branches out to every cell, tissue, muscle, and organ in our body!
