Who is the woman behind www.drtania.com? A native of New Jersey, Dr. Tania Howard Pritz decided to become a chiropractor at the age of 15, when she experienced a complete metamorphosis in her health after seeking chiropractic care for an injury. She completed her undergraduate work at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California, and her doctorate at Life Chiropractic College in Atlanta, Georgia in 1991. Dr. Tania first practiced in Charleston, SC, and later in Maryland, where she practiced for nearly 20 before she took her show ‘on the road’ with her saucy lifestyle blog.
Hollywood came calling and she enjoyed providing chiropractic health care on movie sets (Tuck Everlasting, Ladder 49, The Replacements, and many others) and behind the scenes at live shows like David Copperfield. She’s been profiled in Washington Post Magazine and other trade and regional publications.
A chiropractic lifestyle has helped her to stay fit and healthy enough to become a triathlete and marathoner at the age of 40 (though she admits to being a yoga convert). She lives in Annapolis with her three true loves, her husband Braden and daughters Francesca and Julia.
