Matt, American Fork

The Joint Chiropractors are all amazing. I highly recommend them!

I started getting adjustments for my job because my back was bothering me. I started feeling so much better, I kept getting adjustments and after 5 years I am still coming back and feeling great.

Linda, Gold River

I came in to The Joint because I have a very physical job. Being able to get these adjustments benefits me with pain relief, more flexibility, and stress relief.

Keith, Pinole

Chiropractic care has assisted me in managing and preventing migraines. The Joint is very reasonably priced and provides great care. With very little wait times and flexibility of walk in appointments, it’s made chiropractic care an effortless self-care option.

Crystal, Nugget Plaza

Best thing since sliced bread! Keeps me totally aligned and I keep coming back!

Shawn, Loehmann's Plaza

Chronic migraines from brain tumor. I was always afraid/anxious about being adjusted, and I avoided it. Super glad I took a chance and tried an adjustment here. I have been a patient for a few months now and it has truly improved my quality of life. Thank you!

Leah, Renaissance Creek

This place is amazing! As a dancer and active gym goer, I’m always looking for ways to recover and keep my body well adjusted and ready to go! The staff and doctors are amazing as well and super welcoming! Overall the place is wonderful, super affordable and everyone is super knowledgeable.

Grant, The Plant

I have arthritis in my neck and have had 4 surgeries and am always “sore”. The Joint has helped immensely in managing my pain.

Denise, Murray Hill

I originally came because of a neck problem. I let it get chronic and couldn’t turn my head. After about 4 treatments I was back to normal. I signed up for the monthly deal and have been doing it for over 3 years. I’ve never regretted being a member – it’s my main form of self care!

Roger, Pebble Marketplace

I started going to The Joint for wellness. They have several doctors, each have their own style so you’re sure to find more than one you like.

Elosie, University Mall

I would not be able to function without The Joint. I suffer horribly with Vertigo and no doctor could help, just gave me anti nausea meds. Chiropractic treatment has stopped my vertigo for 4 years now. Truly a life safer.

Marlo, South Reno

Always friendly in and out fast, and always feel so much better.

Colette, South Jordan

Very friendly, fast, easy, cost effective, and they fixed my sciatica! Five Stars! Thank you!

Aaron, Sparks

I travel a lot for work so I always enjoy finding the local “The Joint” to get a quick adjustment! I enjoy the varied techniques and styles from all the doctors! 7 doctors / 7 cities / 7 new favorites! Thank you!

Valerie, Johnson Creek

I’ve been visiting The Joint over the last year and feel much better than I did the prior 15 years, with no chiropractic care. The staff is all very friendly and the hours are accommodating of a busy schedule. Surfing and playing with my daughter are now as enjoyable as they should be, pain free 🙂

Jason, Vacaville

I’ve been dealing with back pain for 10 years and as a hairdresser, I stand all day which doesn’t help. I had been searching for a good fit and have found it here. I love that I can come in anytime without making an appointment! It’s never a long wait, and I always feel great when I leave. I would absolutely recommend The Joint to everyone I know!

Joni, Happy Valley

The Joint and the crew at this location provides a clean, professional, and awesome environment. The price and expertise allows me to keep moving without breaking the bank.

Adam, Cascade Park

After a year of receiving chiropractic care, I cannot imagine a life without it. I have suffered from headaches that have gradually increased to migraines in the past 10 years. At its peak, I expected to have a headache at least twice a week and I thought it was normal. Since getting adjusted once a week thanks to The Joint’s monthly membership plan, my headaches have decreased dramatically. Since receiving chiropractic care for a year, I have only gotten a handful of headaches. It has truly been life changing!

Lynn, Brokaw Plaza

I’ve been coming to The Joint Chiropractic for a little more than 3 months now and only wish I’d discovered them sooner. As a distance runner and active weightlifter, alignment is everything. The improved mobility in both my neck and hips were immediate and I am still seeing continued improvement regularly.

John, Goat Blocks

I was injured from physical activity, The Joint has saved my life. I never thought I’d be able to afford on going chiropractic care. I walked in unable to walk upright or properly. The continuing care of regular adjustments has helped me work without pain, it’s correcting my uneven hips and helping my posture. I love all of my doctors at The Joint for educating me and being patient with my fears of being in pain. I found The Joint online with a $29 special. I was so happy!!

Stephany, N. Williams

I came in as a last resort. I was in constant pain and walking with a limp. This had gone on for over a year. My doctor told me to give it time. Well after a few months with The Joint, that is all gone. It’s a miracle!

Mark, Family Center at Riverdale

I have sought out many chiropractors because I am very active with sports and I always tend to get out of line, but chiropractors are always so expensive for each visit. That is why The Joint Chiropractic is perfect for me, because it is quick and easy and most importantly affordable. I would definitely recommend The Joint Chiropractic to student-athletes because of the tight schedule, it is very fast and on your own time.

Jenna, Hazel Dell

I’ve been coming to The Joint for 2 1/2 years and haven’t missed a week. My body loves me for it! Quick, Easy and Convenient.

Vincent, Almaden Ranch

After an Injury and car accident, modern medicine couldn’t help me. Doctor is wonderful as well as the staff. Always such a pleasant experience to come and get adjusted. The flex plan is perfect for my lifestyle. Thanks for everything!

Janin, West Sacramento

I have had a great experience. Clean, modern facility. I feel so much better after weekly visits. It is also very affordable.

Joe, Citrus Heights

I came to The Joint for maintenance with my job as a dental assistant. I took a break during maternity leave and when I returned I had headaches, back pain and shoulder pain from baby carrying and car seats. The great Chiropractors took the pain away and standing straight!

Kelsey, Cedar Hills

I have been coming to The Joint for about 90 days now and have never felt so good. In fact I feel so good that I almost forget to come in each week. I have been using chiropractic for over 10 years and this is the best I have ever felt. Coming in each week has made all the difference in my overall health. Thank you for all your help.

Doug, Natomas

Living without pain has changed my life, I now have more energy. Thank you Joint!

Gina, NW Reno

Started coming into The Joint Delta Shores after experiencing pain and spasms in by back. After a few weeks of treatment, I slowly but surely started feeling improvements and eventually the pain/discomfort was completely gone. The staff and doctors here are wonderful, friendly, and so helpful. I definitely recommend!

Ray, Delta Shores

It was so convenient. The Doctor was very thorough and quick. I appreciated the follow up call and the card sent to my home. Very good customer service.

Janet, Elk Grove Commons

We’re so happy you moved into town! Your weekend schedule works very well for us and everyone is extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. We really enjoyed your handwritten thank you card as well. Special touches aren’t saved for just adjustments.

Alfred, Midtown R Street

I’ve been seeing chiropractors for about 6 years now. The Joint has quality Doctor. Cutting down on cost by $200+ dollars a month has given us spare money for more pain free family time. Thanks to all the Rocklin staff.

Edward, Rocklin

The Chiropractors listen and do a fantastic adjustment for a great price!

Chelsea, Auburn

What a great experience. Everyone was extremely friendly. Feeling so much better already.

Rich, Crocker Village

Love how fast and easy it is to walk in and be adjusted! The doctors are friendly, knowledgeable and professional! The clinic is also very clean!

Shelbie, Bountiful
