Franchisees opens first clinic in Summerville
The Joint Corp., a leading franchisor of chiropractic clinics is proud to announce the opening of their first clinic in Summerville in the Azalea Square Shopping Center. The clinic is owned and operated by L.S. and Elizabeth Carper with another planned for the West Ashley area in mid 2013.
Mr. Carper has an esteemed career in Healthcare including managing Columbus Group, which recruits top clinical talent for Acute Care Hospitals throughout the United States. Extremely well versed in traditional medicine, Mr. Carper was unable to help as he watched his wife suffer from chronic Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. After all traditional medicine failed to provide relief, she was referred by a physical therapist for chiropractic care. Within three weeks her condition completely went away. After extended research on chiropractic care, Mr. Carper realized there were viable alternatives to drugs and surgery.
When The Joint opportunity came along, Mr. Carper recognized it was a revolutionary concept in delivering affordable chiropractic care. “I like the idea of approaching ongoing wellness through a holistic, preventative program of care rather than waiting until something is wrong to try and fix it. The Joint – with no appointments necessary and lower cost than most co-pays – makes taking care of your health so much more convenient and affordable that anyone can do it,” said Mr. Carper.
Mr. Carper is proud to announce the hiring of Dominique Cassetori, D.C. Dr. Cassetori received her BS from University of South Carolina – Aiken and received her Doctor of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College. “The Joint concept offers an incredible opportunity to help patients focus on health and wellness with the convenient hours at an affordable cost,” said Dr. Cassetori.
The Joint Summerville is located at 464 D Azalea Square Blvd. in the Azalea Square Shopping Center or call 843.873.3666. Please come and visit Dr. Cassetori Monday through Friday from 10:00am – 7:00pm, Saturdays 10:00am-4:00pm.
Join The Joint Summerville for their Grand Opening Open House and Ribbon Cutting with the Summerville Chamber of Commerce on January 17th from 3pm to 6pm. There will be refreshments, clinic tours, free adjustments and give-a-ways.
The Joint is operated by Massage Envy's Founder and former CEO John Leonesio. “L.S. is the type of franchisee who understands the concept because he knows first-hand how beneficial chiropractic care can be. He is dynamic asset to the rapidly growing South Carolina network of clinics,” said Leonesio.
