The Joint Franchise Is at the Forefront as a Healthy Alternative to Reduce Back Pain
The fastest growing chiropractic franchise is winning new patients with ease as back pain becomes more common than ever before
Americans are suffering from back pain in record numbers and are looking for healthy ways to free themselves from pain without the use of prescription drugs. The Good Body reports that “lower back pain is on the rise,” with 8 out of 10 Americans expected to experience lower back pain in their lifetimes. Many Americans are incorporating healthy activities such as yoga, meditation and acupuncture into their routines, while millions of others are visiting chiropractors to combat their pain and live a life of wellness for good.
While the newest study published by the Global Burden of Disease found that lower back pain is the second-most common reason for pain in adults (lower back pain didn’t even make the list in 1990), the rising demand for chiropractic care is a sign that Americans are waking up to its benefits. NPR reports that spinal adjustments can “relax the muscles, joints, and tendons so people can be relieved of their low back pain sooner, rather than later.”
“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,” says Peter D. Holt, President and CEO of the Joint. “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 more than 80% 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.”
Accessible, affordable chiropractic care is becoming more important than ever
Founded in 1999, The Joint is leading the way in making chiropractic care an essential and affordable part of health and wellness for the millions of people seeking relief from back, neck and joint pain.
Targeting the needs of 21st century consumers, The Joint clinics are placed in bustling shopping centers next to community mainstays such as supermarkets, coffee shops, restaurants and hair salons. With no appointments, no insurance and no hassle, The Joint has grown to over 370 locations across the United States. In the process, we have brought a misunderstood practice to where it has always belonged: an essential part of health and wellness.
The Joint offers one service: spinal adjustments conducted by hand. This easy-to-understand practice is chiropractic care as it was meant to be delivered. Because the business model has made chiropractic care consumer-friendly, The Joint has helped more people take control of their health and wellness through chiropractic care than ever before. The Joint performs over 4 million spinal adjustments annually.
“The fact that The Joint is patient-centered, accessible, affordable and intent on providing an excellent customer experience gives us and the entire chiropractic industry a new level of credibility,” says Chris Kemper, owner of multiple The Joint Chiropractic franchise clinics in Nashville, Tennessee. “The model is the reason that we’re successful. Our customers respond organically to the fact that we’re located in the same shopping centers as their favorite coffee shops and supermarkets. Since I’ve opened multiple locations, I’ve found that the demand for chiropractic care has only grown. The Joint has found out what customers need and is giving it to them — that is why we’re successful.”
