SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 22, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Joint Corp. (NASDAQ: JYNT), the nation’s largest provider of chiropractic care through The Joint Chiropractic® network, announces a new collaboration with K9s For Warriors, a nonprofit organization that pairs highly trained service dogs with military Veterans suffering from service-connected traumas. The Joint is sponsoring the training and pairing of a service dog for a Veteran in need, as well as creating impactful conversations surrounding a shared philosophy that supports a drug-free approach to wellness.

“The Joint proudly supports our military, Veterans and their families and we are honored to partner with K9s For Warriors and support the important work they are doing across the country,” said Peter D. Holt, President and CEO of The Joint Corp. “Military training, deployment and service can take a serious toll on the body’s physical and mental state and K9s For Warriors’ program mirrors The Joint’s philosophy that everyone can benefit from a natural approach to pain relief.”

K9s For Warriors focuses on restoring a Veteran’s independence by allowing them to build an unwavering bond with a service dog, many of which come from high-kill shelters, to facilitate their collective healing and recovery. The Veterans are supported before, during and after the program at no cost. Roughly 20 Veterans die by suicide every day, and K9s For Warriors is determined to change that.

“We are incredibly grateful for the support of The Joint to further our mission to end Veteran suicide,” said K9s For Warriors CEO Carl Cricco. “K9s For Warriors has the privilege every day to see the impact a service dog has on a Veteran. With a battle buddy by their side, the Veteran returns to a life of dignity and independence they didn’t previously think was possible. The Joint’s generosity allows us to continue changing Veteran lives.”

The Joint Chiropractic also honors members of the military nationwide through its Military Appreciation Program. The year-round program offers active and retired military personnel, National Guard and Veterans, as well as their immediate families, an initial visit for only $19, which includes the consultation, exam and adjustment. The program also reduces pricing by $10 for a monthly wellness plan or chiropractic care package.

In addition, The Joint’s military supports extends through its agreement with the Army & Air Force Exchange Service and provides on-installation chiropractic care to members of the military and their families with locations open at The Joint Chiropractic – Luke Air Force Base, The Joint Chiropractic – Fort Cavazos, The Joint Chiropractic – MacDill Air Force Base and The Joint Chiropractic – Fort Dix.
