The Joint Chiropractic Story
How a membership-based chiropractic franchise disrupted an entire industry and changed the way consumers get their chiropractic care.
The Joint was founded in 1999 by a Doctor of Chiropractic with the mission to improve the quality of life through routine and affordable chiropractic care. By making routine chiropractic care more accessible, affordable and customer-friendly, The Joint has transformed the way chiropractic care is delivered in the United States.
A rapidly growing franchise system.
The ease of The Joint’s business model means that owning a chiropractic franchise has become more inclusive than ever before. While chiropractors make passionate and successful franchise owners because our business model allows them to focus on their patients, no prior medical or chiropractic experience is required to franchise with The Joint. Entrepreneurs who are passionate about bringing quality and affordable care to their communities are equally as successful with The Joint.
The Joint has been so successful as a franchise system that Entrepreneur named us the “Best of the Best” franchise in the health services segment for 2016. We’re not new to praise: the same publication has included us in their prestigious “Franchise 500” list each year since 2012, Inc. named us to their annual list of fastest-growing franchise systems and Franchise Times recently recognized our franchise in the top 10 of their Fast and Serious list.
How Large Is the Chiropractic Industry?
The nation’s fastest-growing chiropractic franchise is reinventing chiropractic care for the 21st century consumer.
The chiropractic industry is going through a sizeable growth spurt, and an entire generation of Americans is turning to chiropractic care for regular health and wellness benefits. This shift has created a huge opportunity for smart entrepreneurs and chiropractors.
As Americans expand their definition of healthcare, alternative methods of healthcare are experiencing a rise in popularity for their ability to effectively treat common ailments without the use of prescription drugs. Nowhere is this more evident than in the chiropractic industry, which is expected to grow well beyond its current market valuation of $14 billion in annual revenue* in the coming years.
Why The Joint Is an Attractive Business Model.
Membership-based chiropractic franchise is a best bet for chiropractors and non-chiropractors
In less than a decade, The Joint has grown from a small number of clinics to over 350 locations across the United States. The reason? The Joint is a low-cost investment opportunity that is easy to scale, easy to run and meets a rapidly growing need in the market by offering affordable and convenient access to chiropractic care.
The Joint is disrupting the traditional chiropractic industry. As the first publicly-traded membership-based chiropractic franchise, The Joint is a vastly different business model than the hard-to-find chiropractic clinics of yore. The Joint places its clinics in highly visible retail settings next to local coffee shops and supermarkets. There are no appointments, no insurance and no waiting to see a doctor. The Joint is also far more affordable than traditional chiropractic clinics; the average visit to The Joint costs nearly half as much as the insurance co-pay of a traditional chiropractic visit.
The Joint is unique in the chiropractic industry because of our gym-like membership model, which provides our franchise owners with a recurring revenue stream and our members with an affordable plan to manage their health and wellness. The Joint also offers multiple-visit bundles, encourages walk-in appointments and is open on nights and weekends, giving our doctors the potential to treat far more customers than a traditional chiropractic clinic could ever imagine.
