Why the Buffalo/Rochester area? Why now?
With nearly 2.2 million in the Buffalo/Rochester area, the rapidly growing cities are brimming with people who are in dire need of treatment for their back and neck pain. The Global Burden of Disease Study reports that lower back pain is the leading cause of disability, and the last time The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons measured patient visits for back pain in 2012, they found that 52.4 million more people visited their doctor for back pain than in 2004*. According to NPR, those suffering from back pain account for the largest portion collecting a government disability check** — a number that is likely to rise as our lifestyles become more sedentary and less active, coinciding with record obesity levels and an aging baby boomer population.
“The field of chiropractic care is becoming significantly more important as more and more people are becoming concerned with finding alternative methods to manage their overall health and wellness,” Holt says. “People’s perception of chiropractic care is dramatically changing due to several factors: our nation’s problems with obesity and the medical emergency that is the abuse of pain medication, which has never been higher than it is now. As 87% of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives, chiropractic care is a natural and effective way to treat that pain without the use of prescription medication.”
Why you should franchise with The Joint in the Buffalo/Rochester area
The Joint was founded in 1999 by a Doctor of Chiropractic with the mission to improve the quality of life through routine and affordable chiropractic care. By making routine chiropractic care more accessible, affordable and customer-friendly, The Joint has transformed the way chiropractic care is delivered in the United States.
With a small footprint, limited overhead and staff consisting of three to four employees, The Joint is easy to operate and boasts a proven business model that is unique in the $3 trillion healthcare industry. Our membership model eliminates the need for insurance while providing our franchise owners with a recurring revenue stream that helps to maximize profitability and potentially quicken the return on investment. Our model works for chiropractors seeking to own a business that avoids the nightmare of insurance billing, and it works equally well for business investors who see the need for more accessible chiropractic care.
“The true success of The Joint is that we are making chiropractic care available to millions of Americans who never would have considered visiting a chiropractor before,” says Peter D. Holt, CEO of The Joint. “There are so many people suffering from neck and back pain as a result of our sedentary lifestyles, our diets, our workout regimens and our age. Our franchise owners become meaningful members of their communities because we’re right next door to the supermarkets, the coffee shops like Starbucks and restaurants like Chipotle. We’re accessible, affordable and we can treat our customers in a matter of minutes — sending them on their way to meet their friends or do their grocery shopping.”
