The Joint Franchise is a Smart Investment for Chiropractors
The fastest-growing chiropractic franchise is winning over chiropractors because of our easy-to-run, easy-to-scale business model
The Joint is both the fastest-growing chiropractic franchise and the largest employer of chiropractors in the nation. Our success is a testament to the ease of our business model, as well our commitment to expanding chiropractic into the mainstream.
For chiropractors, The Joint represents an incredible opportunity to fulfill their entrepreneurial dreams while honoring the practice of chiropractic care by expanding it to awaken more people than ever before to its benefits. For new chiropractors, as well as experienced chiropractors operating traditional clinics, The Joint is a worthy business investment because of our proven business model and our solid track record of helping chiropractors advance their professional goals.
“Chiropractors coming into this model have the operational tools and systems built for them to be successful in a high-volume practice,” says Dr. Steve Knauf, Director of Chiropractic and Compliance with The Joint. “You have the support of a leading national franchise system, complete with marketing support, training and education, as well as tools to help grow your businesses and scale effectively. By being a part of a brand, you don’t have to face all the burdens that chiropractors face when they open a traditional clinic on their own. Instead, you get the exact opposite — The Joint exists to help our franchisees succeed.”
Founded in 1999, The Joint has revolutionized the way chiropractic care is delivered. By placing our clinics in retail settings — next to busy supermarkets, coffee shops and family restaurants — The Joint has made chiropractic care more accessible and more affordable than ever before.
Our gym-like membership model has done away with our clients’ need for insurance coverage, which liberates our doctors from the hassles of dealing with the insurance industry. This allows them to focus on providing exceptional care to their patients, and it also greatly reduces the costs of care for our customers.
“The business model for The Joint is a game-changer for chiropractors who are used to operating clinics that are hard to find,” Steve says. “The Joint is the exact opposite. We’re extremely focused on determining the right locations for our clinics, and we have a full marketing team to help franchisees attract clients from grand opening and beyond. The Joint is a national brand, so it is much easier to earn brand recognition and visibility than it would be if you were going to open a new clinic on your own.”
Our most recent Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) reveals just how 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 by double digits. The Joint reported weekly patient visits that were 152% higher than those to individually-owned clinics.
“This is no secret,” Steve says about The Joint’s ability to serve more customers. “Because our doctors are providing only one service, spinal adjustments conducted by hand, they can treat more people than a traditional clinic could ever imagine. This creates the potential to be more profitable, as well as to help more people heal.”
The Joint is working vigorously to expand the profession and ensure that chiropractic care continues to grow well into the future.
“The Joint, as a business model, was always going to happen,” Steve says. “The insurance industry, and the hassles it causes chiropractors, has been terrible for decades. This is an opportunity for chiropractic care to thrive in the mainstream, reaching more people than ever. As a company, we take chiropractic care incredibly seriously; our patients rely on us to help them live healthier lives. We’re going to continue to expand our reach and open chiropractic care up to millions more in the years to come.”
The Joint is a low-cost investment opportunity with high potential returns
The Joint was named to Entrepreneur magazine’s prestigious annual Franchise 500 list of the top franchise systems to invest in for 2017.
