Dr. Katie (Olson) Saalfeld was born and raised in Fremont, Nebraska. Growing up, she participated in a variety of activities including basketball, softball, volleyball, and bowling. Katie fell in love with bowling and was a member of the Fremont bowling club. Dr. Saalfeld was on the team that won state in 2008 and 2009. Her love for bowling continued in college and once Midland University announced they were creating a bowling team, she transferred from the University of Lincoln to become apart of Midland's growing program.
At Midland University, Dr. Saalfeld received a Bachelors of Science degree and majored in Biology. While a sophomore in college, she became passionate about working out and living a healthy lifestyle. She particularly loved weight training and after a training session, she noticed that her low back was starting to bother her. After a few weeks of the pain not subsiding, she decided to give chiropractic care a try. She received great results from her adjustments and loved that chiropractic encompassed fitness, nutrition and over all health. After juggling around a few different health care professions, she knew that becoming a chiropractor was the perfect career choice for her.
Dr. Saalfeld attended the prestigious Palmer Chiropractic College where she studied the Palmer Package of adjusting techniques: Gonstead, Thompson Drop, Diversified and Toggle Recoil. She was fortunate to spend her clinical rotation at the Palmer Rehab Clinic where she was introduced to Active Release Technique and Graston Techniques as well as many other useful modalities that allow her a well-rounded approach to addressing her patient’s complaints. Encompassing her world-renowned Palmer Package Techniques as well as her soft tissue modalities and therapies, Dr. Saalfeld is Board Certified in Physiotherapy and graduated from Chiropractic College in the winter of 2017.
