Dr. John Tagliarini is originally from Clark, New Jersey where he grew up in a family oriented town similar to West Hartford. He developed a passion for healthcare and conservative treatment after a medical misdiagnosis which almost resulted in an unnecessary organ removal.

He earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and his Doctorate in Chiropractic, both from the prestigious Life University, the largest Chiropractic university in the US. Prior to moving to West Hartford, Dr. John and his wife owned and operated a Chiropractic practice in Charlotte, North Carolina for 5 years. In 2006, they headed north to be closer to family, raise their own family, and open Tagliarini Chiropractic. Since moving to West Hartford, their new practice has won “Best Chiropractor” in the CT Now Reader’s Poll 9 years in a row. In his spare time, Dr. John enjoys laughing and playing with his 2 boys, all things cycling, Crossfit, and good coffee. He is honored to serve the West Hartford Community and surrounding areas by helping residents achieve better health without drugs, needles or surgery.
