Joe Ritola, DC


Became an Airrosti Provider:2019

Undergraduate School:Appalachian State University - Boone, NC

Graduate School:Life University - Marietta, GA

Hometown:Traverse City, MI

Hobbies:I enjoy hiking, biking, running, yoga, strength training, and spending time outdoors with my dog, Big Boy. I also like woodworking, refurbishing furniture, and tinkering around in my garage and yard. Plants/gardening, furniture restoration, anything outdoors.

Interesting Facts:My first introduction to chiropractic was as a patient when I was treated for severe lower back pain in high school. That inspired me to begin my bodywork career as a massage therapist when I was 18 before moving on to chiropractic school. I also cooked professionally through my teens and twenties. I began my bodywork career as a massage therapist in 2000.

What Airrosti Means to Me:Airrosti affords me the opportunity to treat patients in a way that honors their true innate ability to heal. I cannot heal you. Only you can do that. Airrosti allows me to assist you in that process in the fastest, most effective and efficient way I've experienced in my entire career.

When I entered Dr. Ritola's office, I had been hurting for almost a month. I was so worried that I had something that might require surgery. My body felt better after the very first visit! The app with exercises is so helpful, and Pete was great about walking me through each one so that I could take charge of my own care. Not only do I feel much better, but I'm also empowered with things I can do to strengthen the exact areas that need it most to prevent future injury. I highly recommend this to anyone who might have an injury.

Went in for pain and tightness behind the right ear and neck area. Joe did a wonderful job listening and taking care of my problem. He had me pain-free in a very short time. Excellent provider.

I have been running cross country and track for 3 years now. Going into my junior year of cross country, I started to feel a small pain on my left knee and I ignored it. I kept running on it and kept putting in more and more miles until it started to get worse. It was interfering with my training harshly, and it had been going on for about a month or two already. My dad recommended I go to Airrosti to get help from Dr.Ritola who was the same person who helped treat him. He helped me out with my knee and my ankle; which turned out to be what was causing the pain in my knee. I went for a little over a month and I was gladly able to enjoy my training and compete in my season. I kept doing all the exercises that he gave me and I kept treating i...+ show moret as he advised me to afterward, and in the span of two months, I was back to normal with no more pain.

This was a great experience! I had pain in my leg & started with another provider & it was going nowhere! Then I chose Dr. Ritola at Airrosti & he took charge with a great plan & the treatments were very effective. I highly recommend Dr. Ritola & his trainer partner, Pete, after my speedy recovery!

I loved my experience with Joseph Ritola. He was very accommodating and attentive in all virtual sessions. The televisits gave the direction I needed to complete the exercises at home without issues as I was able to watch the demonstrations again and again. That was a perk as you can’t always do these by memory. I’ve attempted a variety of physical therapy on my own with little to no change because the accountability was not there. Joseph made me accountable as well as the app reminders. I’ve felt improvement in my mobility and I’m excited to continue my rehab to see where this takes long term.

I was experiencing excruciating pain in my upper arm for over a week and had almost no range of motion between the shoulder and the elbow. I had an appointment with Dr. Ritola, and after one visit with him where he performed some deep tissue work and assigned physical therapy exercises, I felt immediate relief. I would recommend anyone to see Dr. Ritola - his bedside manner is so warm and he explains things in a very easy to understand way.
