WICHITA — When Rebecca Jordan celebrates her 20th anniversary of being a chiropractor in April, it will be in new, somewhat unexpected space.
“I just never thought I’d move from there,” she says.
“I thought I was actually going to retire from that facility, but Dopps really wants to take over my floor.”
She’s leaving 2,200 square feet. Jordan and the chiropractors in her practice, Susan Jensen and John Tran, are moving to 3,500 square feet at the northwest corner of Ninth and McLean in late February.
In addition to chiropractic services, Jordan says they offer acupuncture, decompression traction and nutritional counseling. The practice, which has bilingual employees who speak Vietnamese and Spanish, also is adding massage.
“Moving to another facility just kind of made sense anyway,” Jordan says. “We do need more room.”
Her son, Drew, who manages her office, is going to chiropractic school in a couple of months.
“It’s going to be tough,” Jordan says of him leaving.
He’ll return to the practice following school “and hopefully take over” in a decade or so, Jordan says.
“It’s a good practice, and we have good staff, and they love him.”
Jordan says there are a lot of decisions to be made before the new space is ready. She’s still kind of stunned to be leaving where she is, she says.
“I mean, I’ve worked there my whole life,” Jordan says. “It’s just kind of shocking. But it’s OK. Change is good.”
