The Joint Chiropractic Franchise is Coming to Napa Valley, CA
The fastest-growing chiropractic franchise is providing an opportunity for chiropractors who want an easier business model
It’s time for the residents of Napa Valley, California to crack open the bubbly in wine country. The Joint, the fastest-growing chiropractic franchise in the nation, recently announced plans to open a new clinic in the market.
The North Bay Business Journal broke the news of the new clinic opening in Napa Valley in an article titled, “ Chiropractic clinic chain The Joint eyes Napa, Santa Rosa for franchise growth.” The esteemed local business publication reports correctly that while The Joint has 74 clinics in California, more than half are in Southern California. This means that the larger San Francisco-metropolitan-area and Northern California are prime markets for savvy entrepreneurs and chiropractors who desire an easier business model on which to capitalize.
Since 1999, The Joint has grown to 400 locations open across the United States. This rapid development is the direct result of our transformative approach to chiropractic care, which places our clinics next to supermarkets, restaurants and coffee shops. Our membership model does away with the need for insurance, which makes our services more accessible and affordable to the millions of people who need chiropractic care to alleviate back and neck pain. The number of people who do need chiropractic care continues to grow at a rapid clip, with The North Bay Business Journal reporting that 37 million people seek chiropractic care annually, and of that number, The Joint treats more than four million people each year.
“Right now, we have the largest umbrella of chiropractic clinics in the world, but we’re only just getting started,” says Peter Holt, CEO of The Joint. “There’s been a shift toward convenience in the healthcare industry and that’s something we’ve stood for since day one.”
The article highlights the success of Bradley N. Moody, a franchisee with The Joint who operates a clinic in Vacaville, a growing community close to the Napa Valley region. Moody operated a traditional clinic for over 25 years, and chose The Joint because, like so many of our franchisees, he desired a business model that was easier to run than a traditional clinic.
“Not having to deal with insurance was the main thing. It was a big headache,” Moody says in the article. “The reduction in overhead is tremendous. Dealing with insurance is very expensive. Now, I pass the savings on to my patients.”
The Joint treats far more patients than a traditional chiropractic clinic could even conceive of helping. The North Bay Business Journal reports that Moody treats a lot more patients per day than he ever did in his traditional clinic:
“Whereas he saw about 40 per day in private practice, at The Joint, with another part-time chiropractor, he sees 60 to 70 per day,” The North Bay Business Journal reports in the article. “Routine treatments last between five and 10 minutes.”
Moody’s success in seeing more patients is the norm across the entirety of our franchise network. Our most recent Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) reveals just how much more successful The Joint is at bringing new customers into the fold of chiropractic care. Our average weekly visit count grew close to 260 in 2016, and new customer visits were up in double digits. The Joint reported weekly patient visits was 152 percent higher than individually-owned clinics.
