About Dr. Michelle Balestrieri

Dr. Michelle Balestrieri moved to Floyd, VA during her sophomore year in high school. From there, she attended Virginia Tech, graduating magma cum laude with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and minors in Sociology and Biology. She was originally pre-med, however, after shadowing Dr. Rathmann at Tuck Clinic, she became very interested in chiropractic medicine. Three months later, after being unable to turn her head left or right for a few days, she started being treated by Dr. Rathmann and the rest is history.

Michelle attended National University of Health Sciences in Chicago for her chiropractic education. She is very excited to be in the New River Valley again, this time with her husband, Joe, and daughter, Belle.
