National chiropractic group opens first Memphis office

The Joint Corp., an Arizona-based franchisor of chiropractic clinics, has opened its first location in Memphis.

The Joint clinic, located at 220 North Germantown Pkwy., Suite 15 at Wolfchase, will be owned and operated by chiropractor Patrick A. Kolwaite. Before starting the Joint, Kolwaite owned and operated MidSouth Chiropractic Center PLLC.

Ben Kemker will also practice at the clinic.

The Joint differs from traditional clinics by operating more like retailer, offering flat monthly membership plans that entitle patients a set number of office visits per month. Walk-ins are also accepted.

The Joint Corp. was founded in Tucson in 1999, and now has 418 clinics open or in development in 27 states.
