Non-insurance approach makes chiropractic care affordable and convenient

The Joint Chiropractic is now open in San Antonio at 9110 N. Loop 1604 W., Suite 109. The new clinic officially opened on May 19.

The Joint offers an innovative, patient-friendly approach that allows people to get affordable, quality chiropractic care on their terms. Appointments are not necessary, clinics are open evenings and weekends, and insurance is not needed as The Joint’s membership plans and packages mean visits are often less costly than most insurance copays.

Clinic owner Larry Maddalena, DC opened the first The Joint franchise in the state of Texas in May 2007, after running a successful private practice in California for 10 years. He received his Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) from Palmer College of Chiropractic West in 1996. He became interested in chiropractic after being successfully treated for allergies and chronic back pain as a teenager.


The full-time doctors at the new clinic are Dr. Sean McKnight, D.C. and Dr. Mark Nicosia, D.C. Dr. McKnight earned his Doctor of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College in 2012. He earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Hartford in Connecticut. After working in New York City for a short time, he visited San Antonio and relocated soon after. Despite being relatively new to the area, Dr. McKnight looks forward to helping San Antonio residents experience the same health benefits he gained from chiropractic since he was a teenager when, as high school athlete, he suffered numerous injuries and experienced healing with weekly visits to a hands-on chiropractor.

Dr. Mark Nicosia was born and raised in Corpus Christi. After graduating from Parker University in Dallas, Dr. Nicosia practiced chiropractic for 20 years in Corpus Christi. He decided to pursue a chiropractic career at the age of 13 after his father was injured and was told he would not recover without surgery. His father chose chiropractic treatment instead and is still walking today. Dr. Nicosia believes he can impact lives with chiropractic medicine just as his father’s life was impacted.

Regular chiropractic adjustments can help treat and prevent the aches and pains that result from the repetitive activities of everyday life. These symptoms include back pain, headaches, and “text neck” resulting from mobile device use. Consumers who take 15 minutes out of their week for a regular adjustment are able to more fully participate in the activities they enjoy and lead an active, healthier life.

The Joint Bandera is open seven days a week: Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
