The Joint Corp. Announces Third Clinic Opening in Minneapolis Area
Former MLB Player Excited for New Venture
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - March 8, 2013 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - The Joint Corp., a leading franchisor of chiropractic clinics, today announced the opening of its newest clinic in Eagan. The clinic is owned by DC Management P.C. and is managed by The Joint franchisee Mr. Robb Quinlan.
Upon retiring from an eight-year career in Major League Baseball with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (formerly the Anaheim Angels), Quinlan, a native of St. Paul, began looking for new business opportunities and found one right in his own backyard. As a longtime advocate of chiropractic care, when introduced to The Joint concept, he knew instantly he wanted to be part of this growing enterprise. “As a lifelong athlete and professional baseball player, I realized the benefits of chiropractic care in leading a healthy, active lifestyle," Quinlan said.
After an illustrious collegiate career at the University of Minnesota in which he was named Big Ten Conference Player of the Year in 1999, Quinlan was drafted in the 10th round by the Anaheim Angels. After eight years playing in the “Show,” Quinlan equipped with a marketing and communications degree, began seeking his own field of dreams, and found it with The Joint.
“The Joint model allows everyone to receive quality chiropractic care in a convenient and affordable manner,” said Quinlan.
The licensed chiropractor servicing patients at the Eagan clinic is Casey Hallin, DC. Dr. Hallin received his undergraduate degree from Hamline University in St. Paul and Doctor of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington. Dr. Hallin knew since the 11th grade that he was going to be a chiropractor when a hockey injury sidelined him and with the help of a local chiropractor he recovered from his injuries. “My mission is to help as many people as possible discover what chiropractic care can do for them,” Dr. Hallin said.
Visit Dr. Hallin at 1380 Duckwood Drive in the Eagan Convenience Center. Clinic hours are Monday through Friday 10 to 7 and Saturdays 10 to 4. For additional information, please call them at 651.964.1010 or go to thejoint.com.
Join The Joint Eagan for its Grand Opening and ceremonial ribbon cutting with the Dakota Chamber of Commerce on March 12th at 4 p.m. They will have refreshments, clinic tours, giveaways and free adjustments.
“Robb is the type of franchisee who understands the concept because he knows firsthand how beneficial chiropractic care can be. He is a dynamic asset to the growing Minneapolis network of clinics,” says John Leonesio, CEO of The Joint.
