Backbone Chiropractic and Massage Therapy
is growing in in East Lansing. After seven years next door to the Center for Yoga on Grand River, owner Dr. Kristin Batdorf expanded into her own building on Lake Lansing Road.
“I’ve always wanted to own my own building and I needed to be in a bigger space,” Batdorf says. “We were bursting from the seams in our previous location.”
Batdorf attributes her growth to her unique approach to chiropractic.
“I think that we operate a little slower,” she says. “We take our time. I’m trying to solve the problems people come in with. The massage helps, especially with people who are really tight, and it is an alternative to people who don’t’ like to be manipulated. “
The new location opened in September. In the new space, Batdorf has hired an additional massage therapist, expanded the hours of her receptionist, and hopes to eventually bring on an additional chiropractor.
The 2,000 square foot building houses Backbone Chiropractic in one half of the space, and Batdorf is seeking to lease the other half.
