Job Description

Company Overview

The Joint is the largest provider of non-insurance, private pay chiropractic health care in the United States. Our network consists of modern, consumer-friendly chiropractic clinics and individually selected Doctors of Chiropractic that deliver quality care of the highest standards.
Routine activities regularly cause misalignment's of the spine. These misalignment's, otherwise known as subluxations or joint dysfunctions, create interference with the transmission of proper nerve communication through the spine and extremities. This can cause decreased joint motion, pain, discomfort and/or a lessening of the body s ability to function properly. Chiropractic focuses on conditions stemming from restricted joint motion, mainly of the spine and related nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.
At The Joint our primary focus is on providing our patients with a pathway towards better health through ongoing chiropractic maintenance and preventative care. Our number one concern is the health and safety of the people we serve. Therefore, we only accept those patients determined to have the potential to benefit from our care.
Rest assured, should the need for further testing or a second opinion be warranted, you will be referred to the appropriate health care provider and/or facility, when indicated.

Our licensed chiropractors use the manual adjustment techniques frequently used by other chiropractors in the profession. These techniques are delivered through the gentle application of a targeted motion where and when indicated to achieve improved alignment and motion of the body s spinal column and extremities. This is commonly referred to as an adjustment or manual manipulation. Other techniques may also be utilized for greater precision and effectiveness when necessary.
