German-born entrepreneur Michael “Mici” Fluegge is bringing a new model in chiropractic service to South Carolina, selling franchises of The Joint that he says will make the services more convenient to clients.
But critics say the low-cost, low-diagnostic clinics undermine the profession.
Fluegge – who is selling franchises of The Joint in South Carolina and eastern Georgia – said the clinics typically charge a flat $19 fee for a first visit and then membership fees from $12.25 and up for future adjustments. Founded in Arizona nearly two years ago, The Joint – unlike traditional chiropractic clinics – does not perform X-rays, does not take appointments and does not accept health insurance.
