About Us

Doctors of Physical Therapy Jereme and Sarah Trunk made their dream come true with opening Balance Within PT in 2015. They had become frustrated with the traditional Physical Therapy world and chose to create the true change they wanted to see...

  • A clinic with full 60-minute one-on-one sessions - so you don't have to compete with other patients for the attention of your Therapist and you don't have to come back as often, saving you precious time (most of our patients come once/week)! 

  • Treatments combining the amazingly effective John F. Barnes' Myofascial Release with the highly skilled prescription of Therapeutic Exercise

  • Where you and your PT work as a team towards goals important to YOU, with whatever style of treatment & number of visits are best for you (without insurance dictating your care!)

We get to work towards things that are important to YOU; allowing you to return to playing with your children/grandchildren, walking your dog, running that 5k, going to yoga/Pilates/the gym or even just going out to lunch with a friend!

You don't have to keep putting your life on hold with nagging pains and stiffness that slows you down affecting your quality of life. We are here to help you make the best decision for your health and to get you back to living pain-free FAST! 

 

Dr. Jereme Trunk, PT, DPT

Jereme graduated from Marquette in 2005 with his Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree. He has worked in premiere Sports Medicine Physical Therapy clinics in Chicago, Milwaukee and Mayo before he and his wife Sarah opened Balance Within in 2015. Jereme now combines his 12 years of experience as a Doctor of Physical Therapy treating Orthopedic conditions with the amazingly effective John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach. After living in chronic pain for almost 20 years due to a ski injury in early adolescence, the combination of Myofascial Release and Physical Therapy facilitated incredible healing in relieving his pain and allowing him to return to an active lifestyle. It’s his passion to share this life-changing work with his patients to help them return to a pain-free, active lifestyle as well!

 

Dr. Sarah Trunk, PT, DPT

Sarah combines her 7 years of experience as a Doctor of Physical Therapy specializing in treating the Spine, Sports Medicine/Orthopedics  and Women's Health with the amazingly effective yet gentle John F. Barnes' Myofascial Release Approach to help her patients reach their goals of a pain-free, active lifestyle. Sarah is a native of Brookfield, WI and loves to spend her free time doing yoga, reading and playing outside whether that be hiking, biking, kayaking, etc. She loves to learn, especially when it comes to new Physical Therapy and MFR techniques to help her patients. She has completed more than 180 hours of training in the John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Approach and has completed extensive training in the treatment of Women's Health conditions. She often receives referrals from other Physical Therapists when a patient is not responding to a traditional approach, and more often than not, Myofascial Release is the missing link which allows them to make a full recovery! She is passionate about empowering her patients through education so they may better understand their bodies and gain the knowledge of how to help heal themselves. 

 

Our Story...

Jereme and Sarah met during a Medical Brigade volunteer trip in Honduras. Although they were both working for one of Chicago's premiere Sports Medicine clinics a few miles from each other at the time, it took flying more than 2,000 miles away to meet! Since that time, they've happily relocated to Wales where they love the quiet nature sanctuary of their home along with their furry family; Penny, Hendrix and Joplin. They love to continue to collaborate together, with their patients and with other holistic and medical practitioners to help their patients navigate their unique path to meeting their goals.
