About Us

In August 2013, Dr. Michael Balfanz took over ownership of Woodlands Chiropractic. With his expertise and overwhelming expanse of knowledge, he continues to grow this comprehensive health care clinic. Providing multiple options for his patients, such as chiropractic care, physical therapy, electro-dermal screenings, massage, and more, he strives to give the best care for his patients.

During his new ownership, he hired Sarah King, doctor in physical therapy, to take control of the physical therapy gym across the hall from his chiropractic clinic. Joining her were two physical therapist assistants, Allen and Darcy.

In February 2014, Dr. Balfanz hired Joshua Tiemens, a licensed massage therapist, to provide beneficial massages for muscle rehabilitation.

By June 2014, Dr. Chad Harrison also joined the team to contribute his knowledge, skills, and leadership in chiropractic care.

Dr. Balfanz continues to grow his clinic in efforts to provide his patients with the best care possible.

During the months of 2015 Woodlands had grown even after the departure of Dr. Harrison, physical therapist assistant Darcy, and chiropractor assistant Laurie. The team welcomed their new billing coordinator, Kris and Laurie's replacement Eva to continue the strong growth of the clinic.

Hitting the year 2016 the team grew even more with the addition of Dr. Kraig Steckler and chiropractor assistants Jenny and Sadie.

With 2016 coming to a close, the staff grew with the addition of Dr. Paul Carpenter our second Physical Therapist and Ben Backe, our second Physical Therapist Assistant.

The clinic grew and so did our location radius. In June 2017 we opened up our second location in Big Lake, MN and also moved our St. Cloud location into a much larger facility to compensate the steady growth of patients we continue to enjoy treating and bettering their lives.
