SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - June 5, 2013 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - The Joint Corp., a leading franchisor of chiropractic clinics, announces that they are halfway to selling out their Colorado Region. The clinics are owned by Back Shack III and Chiropractic Healthcare Solutions and are managed by Regional Developer for The Joint Colorado, Mr. Brad Remington.
The Joint concept is simple – providing affordable and convenient chiropractic care to the masses, and is being led by the man who knows how to do that best, CEO, John Leonesio. Mr. Leonesio is also the founder and former CEO of Massage Envy. “Making the benefits of quality chiropractic care extremely affordable and convenient to the millions of Americans who need it can't happen fast enough. Our standardized clinic model is ideal for brand awareness and rapid growth through franchising,” said Leonesio. “We believe it will set a new benchmark in the industry for patients and chiropractors who will both benefit from The Joint’s ability to deliver the highest standard of care simply and inexpensively.”
With over 30 years in the broadcasting industry, Mr. Remington came across The Joint concept as a patient with ongoing pain from an injury as a young adult. After becoming a regular patient of a clinic in Arizona he began looking into the concept as a business opportunity. He had been telecommuting to Colorado for four-plus years as his wife, Nan, is Head of Lower School at the prestigious Graland Country Day School in Denver. He was ready to make a change out of the television industry, engage his entrepreneurial spirit and move to the city he loves.
“As a long-time patient of traditional chiropractic care, The Joint impressed me from my first visit,” said Mr. Remington. “When I found out this was a franchise model, I knew this was the business for me,” said Remington.
Growth in the Denver area has been rapid with 11 clinics opening in just two years in the Front Range area with several clinics slated to open within the next three months. “The Joint model brings chiropractic care to everyone, there is truly no business like this,” states Remington.
The Joint has 391 clinics open or in development in 26 states.

Today, The Joint...the chiropractic place creates a new philosophy of chiropractic care where clients can utilize chiropractic treatment as an integral part of their health and wellness program.
