5 / 5 stars
I have been involved in chiropractic care for many years in order to deal with effects of sport’s injuries that occurred while I was a teenager. This care has dramatically increased my flexibility, and as a result, I am experiencing much less pain. I would strongly recommend The Joint to others. They offer high-quality chiropractic care at a very affordable price. In addition, The Joint offers services seven days a week and has very flexible hours.

The Joint ...the chiropractic place
4 / 5 stars
I first entered The Joint out of pure curiosity of a chiropractic practice being “franchised.” I ended up becoming a member, to my own personal shock at that time, entirely due to Dr. Leslie Botta, D.C. Dr. Botta enthralled me immediately with her abilities, intelligence, compassion, and overwhelming “presence.” To say simply that Dr. Botta has enhanced my health, wellness, and life would be a grave understatement; she has blessed my life in very deep and meaningful ways.

I observed my husband receiving chiropractic care at The Joint and finally decided I could use a check up. The Joint has helped "keep me in line.” I have recommended The Joint and, particularly, Dr. Botta to several friends and anyone that will listen.

As an EMT who puts a lot of strain on his body helping others, chiropractic care has helped me immensely. I would definitely recommend chiropractic care to anyone. If you are someone who wants the best for yourself, The Joint is the only pace for your chiropractic needs. The staff and chiropractors are top notch.

I was always skeptical of going to a chiropractor, but the team of doctors at The Joint in Clifton Park have made me a believer. I had always thought of going to seek chiropractic care as time consuming and expensive, but my experience has been just the opposite! Before, I didn’t realize what feeling good really felt like. I have had multiple shoulder and neck injuries over the years just from life. Over time I had learned to live with the pain. Now, I don’t have to anymore. Thank you!

I originally sought out care for aches and pains associated with working out and aging. Once my initial issues were resolved, I continued to seek treatment because it just made me feel better overall!
