Dr. Titus Plomaritis is a retired chiropractor who upheld a very successful private practice for 38 years between 1957 and 1995. First completing his undergraduate work at Boston University where he also played football, he then completed a Doctor of Chiropractic at the Chiropractic Institute of New York, followed by a master’s degree at the University of Bridgeport. In 1957, he also became a certified corrective therapist through the Brooklyn VA Hospital.
Well known as the founder of the Plomaritis Family Foundation, a non-profit 501 (c) organization that provides scholarships to college students, Dr. Plomaritis recently completed a book tour that began in July 2017 to help raise funds. His autobiography, “Titus,” which was released in 2012, is the story of a boy who grew up in the Great Depression Era. A member of his high school’s football team, although he showed promise, his father expected him to get a job when he turned 14. Six years in the making and dedicated to his wife of 60 years, Claire, who has since passed, the 600-page book also includes 250 photos and countless memories. To date, the foundation has raised over $100,000.00 from book sales and donations with 100% going toward Scholarships. Titus, was the winner of Shelf Unbound’s “Best Sports Book” of 2018, contest, and that $!000.00 award also went to his foundation scholarship program.
A career that evolved out of his experiences with football, Dr. Plomaritis hurt his back while playing the sport at Boston University, his future in chiropractic care quickly became evident. Since completing his degrees, he has become very active with various professional organizations, including as the former president of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, and the Chairman of the New Hampshire Board of Chiropractic Examiners and instrumental in the creation of the International Board of Chiropractic Examiners, member of the American Chiropractic Association, Florida Chiropractic Association and the New Hampshire Chiropractic Association.
