Middletown, NJ – On October 30, The Joint…the chiropractic place® announced the opening of a new clinic at 1407 Route 35 in the Middletown Shop Rite Plaza, with a ribbon cutting ceremony with Assemblywoman Amy Handlin and Middletown Committeeman Stephen Massell. Free adjustments, prizes and giveaways were all part of the grand opening.

Franchise owner Harla Cohen states, “Jeff and I are both very passionate about health and wellness. When we decided to move back to New Jersey to be with family, we wanted to do something proactive for the community. After living in Arizona and watching The Joint community grow, we immediately thought that this is what Middletown and Monmouth County needs, affordable and convenient healthcare.”
