SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Joint Corp. (NASDAQ: JYNT), the nation's largest provider of chiropractic care through The Joint Chiropractic® network, wants to help get America moving by offering a free initial visit to all new patients throughout the month of June, the aggregate value of which is expected to be approximately $1 million.
Due to the effects of COVID-19, Americans have been carrying an enormous amount of stress – this can manifest both mentally and physically including symptoms like fatigue, depression, as well as upper back, neck and low back pain. Quarantine and isolation have also led to sedentary behavior and lower levels of activity for many Americans. Chiropractic care can promote improved physical function and joint motion and is vital for keeping the body balanced, flexible and functioning at its best so that patients can get back to doing what they love.
"More than one-third of Americans experience chronic pain, which has been exacerbated due to the stresses caused by the pandemic. As states begin to reopen around the country, our doctors of chiropractic are moved to serve their communities through COVID-19 and beyond by donating free chiropractic visits for new patients throughout the month of June, which is valued at approximately $1 million in the aggregate," said Peter D. Holt, president and CEO of The Joint Corp.
