–First of two clinics is scheduled to open in Fall 2023-
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Joint Corp. (NASDAQ: JYNT), the nation's largest provider of chiropractic care through The Joint Chiropractic® network, has signed its first franchise agreement outside the continental United States. Dr. Jason Comerford, D.C., and Major Jeanette Comerford will open two The Joint clinics in the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, and are targeting the areas of South San Juan and Guaynabo. The first location is slated to open in Fall 2023.
"Dr. Jason and MAJ Comerford are blazing an exciting new trail for The Joint with this expansion into Puerto Rico," said Peter D. Holt, President and CEO of The Joint Corp. "We are excited about this next chapter for our brand and look forward to building a strong presence in this new market."
The Comerfords chose to franchise with The Joint after owning several private chiropractic and health care practices in South Florida. The husband and wife team are scheduled to open their first The Joint location in Fort Pierce, Fla. in the spring. In addition, timing could not be better to open The Joint in Puerto Rico, as the new chiropractic college on the island graduated its inaugural class last year.
"It has been a dream of ours to practice chiropractic in Puerto Rico. With The Joint's easy model and its efficiency for patients, coupled with the support we will receive, we are excited to bring affordable and convenient chiropractic care to these communities," said Dr. Jason and MAJ Comerford.
Dr. Jason has been a doctor of chiropractic for the last 14 years and currently serves as vice president of the Florida Chiropractic Board of Medicine. He recently retired from the U.S. Army after a decorated 24 years of service as a company commander. MAJ Comerford is a native of Caguas, Puerto Rico and has received numerous military awards, including three Army commendation medals.
The Joint Chiropractic is known for its convenient retail setting and concierge-style services including no-appointments, no-insurance hassles, affordable chiropractic care and accommodating hours of operations, including evenings and weekends.
