Dr. Jason Basile, Directing DC
Most of us think chiropractic care is only for addressing injuries or chronic neck and back pain, but Dr. Jason Basile reveals there is much more to chiropractic’s focus. As the director of 8 of The Joint’s 40 Houston-area franchise locations, he explains, “Chiropractic is for wellness. It aligns the body, takes pressure off nerves, and allows bodies to function at optimal levels.” Hands-on, therapeutic manipulation is used to alleviate pain and discomfort, improve body functions, and put patients on a path toward wellness.
Choosing a Chiropractor
According to Dr. Basile, prospective patients should look for an experienced, licensed chiropractor they trust, feel comfortable with, and who will work with them in partnership. A good chiropractor should educate patients about their current condition, goals, and treatment plans. “We develop long-term relationships with our patients and are truly invested in their health and well-being.” All of The Joint’s chiropractors are licensed in the state of Texas and board certified, with some having advanced training in pediatrics and neurology.
Chiropractic Can Improve or Alleviate:
- Chronic neck and back pain
- Shoulder and elbow pain
- Knee and ankle pain
- And more

What Makes The Joint’s Concept Unique?
Their secret ingredients are simple: affordability, availability, and no additional costly therapies. “Adjustment modality allows patients to thrive, not just survive. It is the most important service we could ever offer or perform,” Dr. Basile explains. “We strip away a lot of the costly extras like massage and traction,” allowing patients to be in and out in five minutes for an initial core adjustment. Easy check-in, short wait times, and quality treatment are hallmarks of The Joint’s patient-centric focus. Their no-nonsense approach is convenient, affordable, and effective.
Achieving Wellness Without Breaking the Bank
With an array of affordable options, there’s a plan to meet every budget. One-time visits, Packages, and Wellness Plans are offered. Wellness Plans are encouraged to keep patients’ treatments on track before major issues can occur. “If people don’t take time for their wellness, they’ll have to take time for their illness,” says Dr. Basile.
The Joint’s relaxed approach makes it possible to be seen by an experienced chiropractor in a timely manner suited to patients’ schedules. No appointment is needed for new or existing patients. Just walk in, check in, and get treated. Open seven days a week, The Joint also offers after-hours and weekend appointments, including Sundays.
