Doc Joe has been welcomed to Awaken Optimal Health!
Dr. Joe Leonardi has been enjoying clinical practice for over twenty-five years. He is the former owner of Leonardi Chiropractic Wellness and developer of BetterLife Seminars. He obtained his B.S. from the University of the State of New York and his Doctor of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College. However, his proudest achievement to date is his service in the United States Navy.
Sharing his knowledge of health with others is incredibly important to him. Dr. Joe is the author of several books on weight loss, fitness, and health. He has also served as adjunct faculty at College Misericordia, Luzerne County Community College and Allied Medical and Technical Careers. Additionally, he has mentored interns in many healthcare disciplines including Chiropractic, Physical Therapy, Nursing and Physician’s Assistant students.
Dr. Joe currently competes as a triathlete and is talented at treating and training athletes as well. His team chiropractor roles for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pioneers arena football team, semi-professional Scranton Eagles and NEPA Miners football teams, women’s roller derby Coal City Rollers and providing Chiropractic care at powerlifting and strongman events remain wonderful memories for him.
Dr. Leonardi has authored many articles and made numerous television, radio and internet appearances to discuss the topics of fitness, wellness, obesity, childhood obesity and how childhood obesity relates to bullying and has been a contributor to the international e-zines Naturally Savvy and Carb Smart.
In the rare instances when Dr. Joe allows himself a few minutes to relax, he is usually sitting on the porch with his little sheltie.
