The Joint Chiropractic Franchise is Helping Veterans in Pain

The fast-growing chiropractic health franchise opens clinics on military bases to help veterans heal

The physical toll taken by our members of the military is unparalleled in any other profession or public service, which is why The Joint Chiropractic® health franchise is honored to announce the company is providing on-installation chiropractic care to several military bases across the U.S.

Recently, the Joint Corp., the nation’s largest provider of chiropractic care through The Joint Chiropractic network, announced its three initial target locations: the Luke Air Force Base in Phoenix, Ariz., MacDill Air Force base in Tampa, Fla. and Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in Trenton, New Jersey.

“We’re proud to offer even more convenience to our patients and their families of the armed services,” said Peter D. Holt, President and CEO of The Joint Corp. “Our members of the military put their bodies through extraordinary stresses in the performance of their duties. The benefits of chiropractic care can positively impact and enhance their overall wellness, as they carry out their role in defending our nation.” 

Time and again, chiropractic care for our members of the military who undergo the rigors of protecting the nation has proven vitally beneficial to their health. A decade-long study by the Defense Department, for instance, showed chiropractic care significantly helped service members with back pain, improved isometric strength by 5% and increased endurance by 14%.

“Based on the results, the investigators concluded that chiropractic care improves key fitness characteristics among active-duty service members with lower back pain and could lead to improved military readiness in such individuals,” the report notes.

The Joint Chiropractic’s agreement with the Army & Air Force Exchange Service provides even more convenience and access for members of the military and their families. The Exchange operates more than 4,900 facilities in more than 30 countries, 50 states and four U.S. territories, with an eligible customer base of 33 million active-duty and retired service members and their families.

“Having served five overseas tours, I have seen firsthand the toll military life can put on the body. I have personally experienced how chiropractic care helps restore movement and reduce discomfort to the body brought on from serving in the Armed Forces,” Major Barrett McNabb, U.S. Army (Retired) and multi-unit owner at The Joint Chiropractic, said. “I’m proud to be part of an organization working to serve this special group through this new relationship with the Exchange in offering convenient chiropractic services on base.”

Another study from the Journal of General Internal Medicine that looked at 142,539 active duty Army personnel with chronic pain receiving nonpharmacological treatments, such as chiropractic care, also saw increased joint mobility, improved immunity and better sleep and overall health. For many researchers, the benefits of chiropractic care for military members are just being discovered.

Which is why, in part, The Joint Chiropractic offers the Military Appreciate Program, a year-round program that offers active and retired military and National Guard personnel and veterans, as well as immediate family, an initial visit for only $19, and a $10 discount for monthly wellness plans or chiropractic care packages. The Joint Chiropractic is committed to making sure our military has the access it needs to improve quality of life through routine chiropractic care.
