Joe Bellissimo, DC, was born in New York and received his bachelor’s degree in theater. After working in theater in NYC for 10 years, Dr. Joe returned to his original goal of becoming a doctor. With a little more life experience and some persistent neck and low back pain, he felt a calling towards a more hands-on, drugless, non-surgical mode of healthcare: chiropractic care.
He attended the University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic, where he graduated valedictorian of his class in May 2011. He opened his own practice in West Hartford, CT, and worked there for over a year before he and his husband moved to Columbus in early 2013. He opened the first The Joint… the chiropractic place in Ohio, and worked there for five years as lead doctor until opening his own practice in German Village. Dr. Joe believes that regular chiropractic care and an active lifestyle are essential to the overall health and wellbeing of all his patients.
His job is to get patients feeling better so that they can start to be more active in improving their own health, while helping them to maintain that health. After treating many patients with chronic low back, hip, knee, and ankle pain that were all related to being overweight, Dr. Joe decided he needed to find a way to help patients lose weight, so they could start to feel well enough to exercise, be more active, and take their health back into their own hands. That was when he discovered ChiroThin, and how that weightloss program was empowering people to lose the weight they needed to live a healthier, happier, and less painful life. Several patients told him that they were on the ChiroThin diet and noticed improvement in their body aches and pains as well as in their activities of daily living, not to mention the amount of weight they were losing. Dr. Joe began researching ChiroThin and how it worked and why it was different from other diets on the market. He felt that this was the program that could really help people lose weight and keep the weight off. He believed that this success was due to the change in eating habits: people having to cook their own food with restricted portions, and a reset of the body’s natural weight set-points.
The natural detox that is part of this program and the 120 ounces of water a day also fit into Dr. Joe’s idea of a healthy lifestyle. This is the weight loss program that will change the weight loss industry and improve the lives of his patients.
