My scoliosis was discovered when I was 16. It has gotten progressively worse since then and I have always been fearful that once the curve got to 60 or 70 degrees, I would have to have surgery. However, having met Joe Tatta on 1999, I have been spared by his good advice and counsel. His PT and exercise regime has kept me out of the operating room and free of pain. I am 68 years old and have a 70/40 lumbar-thoracic curve.Karen D.
While I have been a ballet dancer my entire life and still want to dance through my 40s and beyond, Joe has taught me to understand my body rather than to chase the pain that has plagued me for decades. Where Pilates and other conditioning programs have failed, Joe has given me a progressive series of uncomplicated exercises that improve my spinal function. As a result, I am stronger, more flexible, and out of pain. I now have the tools to maintain, and continue to improve, my mechanics to prevent further injury. I can now participate in all the physical actives that I love to do, just more intelligently.Sara O.

He has been my “go to” expert on physical therapy and nutrition.Jennifer R.
My health has been in Joe Tatta’s hands for over twenty years. Our relationship started with physical therapy for chronic aches and pains. I quickly realized that Joe is gifted with more than just “a healing touch”. His wisdom goes further than skin deep. It includes solid counseling on exercise, nutrition and wellness that has proven invaluable through two major spine operations, creeping osteoarthritis and the unavoidable ageing process. Joe is a vital part of my well-being.Pat M.
When it comes to pain, athletes and chronic sufferers don’t think twice about popping Advil or other NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs). NSAIDs alleviate pain by blocking inflammation. Sold over-the-counter, they seem harmless, but serious short and long-term side effects are becoming more widespread.read more
