Chiropractor Medina OH Troy Naftzger

Physician Assistant

Troy Naftzger PA-C

“I became a medic in the military right after high school. It was through my work as a medic that I was introduced to the profession of physician’s assistant. I found it interesting to learn that you didn’t need to become a medical doctor to impact peoples’ health and help to improve their lives. I knew this would be the career path for me.”

Troy spent ten years working for one of the nation’s most renowned and respected reconstructive shoulder surgeons at Ohio State. After years of working in orthopedic and reconstructive surgery, he decided it was time for a change.
“Too many people are having surgery and seeing serious complications afterwards. I feel surgery should be the last option, not the first.” Troy started looking around for other more natural avenues that were true to the rehabilitative principles he learned during his residency.

Finding and Correcting Problems

“I saw the way chiropractors treat the cause of the problem and how the corrective care model of chiropractic fit my beliefs perfectly.”
Troy has been working with chiropractors and other health care professionals for 10+ years. Through this, he’s learned that chiropractors don’t just treat pain. “Our main focus at Advanced Spine Joint & Wellness is on your health and your body’s function instead of just managing your symptoms.”

Family and Faith Come First

Troy considers himself very family and faith-oriented. He spends a lot of time with his wife and kids and is also an ordained minister. He likes to farm and fish and is a self-proclaimed hillbilly! He enjoys our local and national parks, especially Boston Mills Brandywine. He likes to get his kids outside and moving and is teaching them how to snowboard.

Troy and his wife are very involved in their church and enjoy being able to lead a marriage ministry together. Community outreach is an important part of Troy’s life.

Chiropractor Medina OH Sara Donnelly

Chiropractor

Sara Donnelly D.C.

“I chose to go into chiropractic because I wanted to be able to help people who are hurting. It’s different to run a test or prescribe a drug than it is to put hands on patients. Working with your hands is much more powerful. It’s humbling as you are peering into people’s pain which is often their most vulnerable place. It’s a grace to have such a tangible role in the healing process.”
