Born in Lowell, Massachusetts, Dr. Titus Plomaritis, Sr. spent more than 40 years as a successful chiropractor in his community. His initial interest in chiropractic medicine was piqued after he suffered a back injury while playing football in college. He graduated from Boston University with a Bachelor of Science in chiropractic medicine in 1953 and went on to receive a Doctor of Chiropractic from the Chiropractic Institute of New York in 1957. Shortly after becoming a certified corrective therapist through the Brooklyn Veterans Affairs Hospital, he established his private practice, where he practiced full-time for 38 years.
In addition to his practical work in his field, Dr. Plomaritis served as the president of the New Hampshire Board of Chiropractic Examiners, and as president of the National Chiropractic Examiners (now National Board of Chiropractic Examiners). He also co-founded the International Chiropractic Examiners, and visited the Northwest Chiropractic College as a keynote commencement speaker in 1990. As a respected voice in his field, Dr. Plomaritis was on a first-name basis with President Jimmy Carter and was instrumental in getting him and then-Governor Hugh Gallen to allow Medicare patients to see chiropractors without a medical referral.
As an involved member of his community, Dr. Plomaritis founded the Plomaritis Family
Foundation in 2014, which provides college scholarships to high school students in Lowell, Massachusetts and Pelham, New Hampshire. His philanthropic efforts also led to the establishment of a scholarship at his alma mater, Boston University. In addition, Dr. Plomaritis chronicled his life and career in an autobiography titled, “Titus,” published in 2012. In anticipation for the book’s release, he went on a book signing tour to 79 book stores in New England, and donated 100 percent of his sales to scholarships.
