“More than one-third of Americans experience chronic pain, which has been exacerbated due to the stresses caused by the pandemic,” said Peter D. Holt, president and CEO of The Joint Corp in a press release. “As states begin to reopen around the country, our doctors of chiropractic are moved to serve their communities through COVID-19 and beyond by donating free chiropractic visits for new patients throughout the month of June, which is valued at approximately $1 million in the aggregate.”

According to the promotion on The  Joint's website, first-time customers can receive a free consultation, exam and adjustment. The offer is valued at $39.

During the visit, patients will share their medical history, then the doctor will perform an exam of the patient's spine and limbs. A chiropractic adjustment involving a "gentle, non-invasive, non-addictive therapy" will follow.

While many businesses have reopened amid the coronavirus pandemic, The Joint kept as many offices open as possible throughout it, according to a March press release. The company said it was considered among the "essential businesses" that should keep its doors open.

“We know that many people have healthcare needs that can be helped through chiropractic care, and we feel a responsibility and commitment to be available to assist them,” Holt said at the time.
