10th Joint Clinic to Open in Chicago Area

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 02, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Joint Corp. (NASDAQ:JYNT), a national operator, manager and franchisor of chiropractic clinics, today announced additional expansion in the Chicago metropolitan area. This represents another step in the Company’s previously announced strategy to expand its brand nationally by developing company owned or managed and franchised clinics in concentrated, targeted clusters across the country.

The opening of a clinic in Wheaton, Illinois, located at the intersection of Naperville Road and Butterfield Road, marks the 10th Joint clinic in the country's 3rd largest metropolitan statistical area and the 319th clinic in the company’s nationwide system. The opening of the Wheaton clinic is expected mid-February, 2016. All 10 clinics in the Chicago area are newly-developed, company-managed clinics.

"We are pleased to have reached this milestone so quickly,” remarked David Orwasher, chief development and strategy officer of The Joint Corp. “Since entering the Chicago area in late October 2015, we have added 10 new clinics in high-traffic suburban locations such as Schaumburg, in residential areas such as West Lakeview, and in dense urban areas such as the intersection of State and Lake in the heart of Chicago. The opening of 10 locations in such a short period of time demonstrates our commitment and our focus to bringing affordable chiropractic care to this critical market.”

"The rapid concentration of clinics in key markets is the cornerstone of our expansion strategy," stated John B. Richards, chief executive officer. "It not only efficiently leverages our development, marketing and operating resources but also, and most importantly, brings our convenient affordable private pay model to consumers where they can routinely and easily visit The Joint clinics. This parallels similar expansions we have conducted in other large markets in Southern California and Arizona, and adds to our established and still growing base in Texas, Georgia, Colorado, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina and the 19 other states and numerous municipalities where The Joint offers its care."
