Adding, "This unique model offers affordable, convenient and effective chiropractic care in a chic, unique environment." In addition to the Sugar House clinic, Mr. Adelman plans on opening a second clinic in the Cottonwood Heights/Sandy area in the Fall 2011.

"James is going to be a strong asset as we move into the Utah market and I am proud and excited to have him on The Joint team. With his tremendous real estate knowledge and sales savvy, our success in the Utah market is assured" said Mr. Leonesio, Founder and former CEO of Massage Envy and CEO of The Joint. And he adds, "Making the benefits of quality chiropractic care both extremely affordable and convenient to the millions of Americans who need it can't happen fast enough. Our standardized model clinic is ideal for brand awareness and rapid growth through franchising. We believe it will set a new benchmark in the industry for clients and for Chiropractors who will both benefit from its ability to deliver the highest standard of care simply and inexpensively."

The Joint now has clinics in Arizona, California, Louisiana, Texas, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Utah.
