In August, Austin Peay State University athletics department announced an agreement with The Joint Corp. (NASDAQ: JYNT), the nation’s largest provider of chiropractic care through The Joint Chiropractic® network, as the official chiropractor of Austin Peay Athletics.
“We are honored to support the Austin Peay Governors athletic program,” said Peter D. Holt, president and CEO of The Joint Corp. “Through our amateur athletic agreements, The Joint continues to demonstrate the value of chiropractic care in improving sports performance and the correlation between injury prevention. As members of the Ohio Valley Conference, we wish the Governors continued success in their sports seasons.”
According to the American Chiropractic Association, chiropractic care has gained wide use among professional and amateur sports teams across the country. In fact, experts estimate that 90 percent of all world-class athletes use chiropractic care to prevent injuries and increase their performance potential1. With a variety of research stating that chiropractic supports overall wellness and advancing preventive care, it’s remarkable that all National Football League (NFL) teams rely on Doctors of Chiropractic in varying capacities, and 77 percent of athletic trainers have referred players to a chiropractor for evaluation or treatment2.
The Joint Chiropractic is known for its convenient retail setting and concierge-style services. For patients, that means no-appointments, no-insurance hassles, affordable chiropractic care and accommodating hours of operations, including evenings and weekends.
There are 23 The Joint Chiropractic clinics located in Tennessee, including the location on Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway, in Sango Square, in Clarksville.
“We’re excited to have The Joint Chiropractor join the Austin Peay Athletics family,” said Director of Athletics Gerald Harrison. “It is always beneficial to add partners who share our vision for improving our student-athletes’ well-being and who have a positive impact in our community.”
