Dr. Trembush, BS. BS. DC, Chiropractic Physician

“I don’t cure anything!” That’s what Dr. Trembush’s first chiropractor told him. He had suffered with pain through high school and college sports. Medication offered no help. ” I simply apply a specific adjustment and your body can cure itself. I just remove the interference to its ability to heal.”

So for Dr. Trembush, a career in chiropractic began because of the ease in which it helped his pain. “I’ll never forget that first adjustment. It was like that pain and pressure was trying to get out of my body but just needed a little help. That is when I knew I would be a chiropractor.” That soon grew into an understanding that chiropractic is more than a means of relief. It is a way to live a more productive, satisfying, and meaningful life.

Dr. Trembush earned his first B.S. degree at Allegheny College in Meadville, PA. After completing his study there, he was accepted at The National University of Health Sciences in Chicago, IL. During his four years at National, courses included biochemistry, a major emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care in the National Public Clinic. After graduating, Dr. Trembush helped grow a successful practice in the Chicago area before returning West Virginia to establish his practice.

“We love skeptics,” smiles Dr. Trembush. “I still remember the concerns and apprehension I had when I went to the chiropractor for the first time. So we make it a point to explain everything in advance, answer questions and attempt to over-communicate. Before any treatments begin, we discuss the cause of the problem, detailed treatment plan, and any pertinent insurance benefits information. Patients appreciate that.”

Dr. Trembush lives in Morgantown with his wife, April and four daughters, Karsyn Josie, Evyn, and Marli. Outside of the clinic, his main passion is spending time with his family and his English Mastiff, Judge. He enjoys the outdoors and still loves football.

Dr. Trembush receives an adjustment a few times every month. He appreciates the importance of dietary supplementation for health so he and his family take pharmaceutical grade multivitamins and omega 3 fatty acids daily. By staying active, monitoring the amount of toxins he is exposed to, and staying well adjusted, Dr. Trembush knows that even on the rare occasion that he does get sick, his body can recover without turning to medication. Ask him how you can have this confidence in your body.

While in practice Dr. Barko has had the privilege of working with medical doctors, doctors of osteopathic medicine, doctors of physical therapy, and athletic trainers. During his time in this multidisciplinary setting, many professionals were collaborating to ensure the best outcome for the patients.

Dr. Barko he graduated from high school knowing he needed to go to college but not having the means; therefore, at age 18, he joined the US Air Force. After serving in the Air Force working as a crew chief on fighter airplanes, he then came home and joined the Air National Guard in Pittsburgh, he also began working at United Parcel Service as a package handler.

“ While working in this labor type position, I injured my back lifting and twisting while performing repetitive work duties. I found myself unable to get relief from the normal medical referrals who only relied on medication to give me some relief. Ultimately I was advised by my mother to seek a Chiropractor to address my condition. My first thought was, ‘I’m not going to see that quack’. So I refused. After continued suffering with lower back pain and only sleeping three hours a night, I reluctantly went to the Chiropractor. This man was amazing, he was able to resolve my lower back pain within approximately 2 weeks when I had suffered for over 6 months. I was intrigued by his success and this began my quest for knowledge relating to the Chiropractic field. “

After researching this healing art Dr. Barko was convinced he wanted to be a Chiropractor to help other people overcome these same type of injuries. He began taking night classes at WCCC Youngwood, PA and University of Pittsburgh, Greensburg PA campus while continuing to be employed at UPS. He completed his undergraduate degree and was accepted at National Chiropractic College in Chicago, Illinois. During the 4 years at National he studied human anatomy, human physiology, biochemistry, diagnosis of conditions, and chiropractic techniques. While at college he began treating patients at the National Chiropractic public clinic. After graduating with a degree in Chiropractic, he returned to South Western PA where he joined a multidisciplinary clinic. After being at this clinic for 26 years, he felt the need to return to a more Chiropractic based environment that led him to Advantage Health & Wellness.

At the present time Dr. Barko lives in South Connellsville, PA with his wife Lori and his son Tanner. His main passion is spending time with his family and his Siberian Husky, Sabaka. He loves the outdoors and coaches his son’s Pony League baseball team during the summer months. His older son Theo lives in Duluth, Minnesota and works in the aircraft maintenance industry. Dr. Barko is a current member of the King Soloman’s Masonic Lodge #346 in Connellsville. He is dually licensed in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. He is certified in acupuncture from NationalChiropractic College.

“Being in the military and ultimately becoming a chiropractor has instilled and taught me the meaning of integrity, honesty and professionalism. As a Chiropractic physician I am held to a high standard, I am sworn to uphold my oath to the best of my ability. I strive to help people regain their health through proven techniques and protocols designed to restore normal spinal biomechanics and strength there by helping the body heal itself. I believe in having a “Vision for the future” and in that vision I see a tremendous opportunity to help and serve the people in this area.
