We’re going on a bike trip to Greece next year [...] thanks to Dr. Joe

You probably know how much my motorcycle – a 2015 BMW R1200RT - means to me. After all, I have ridden over 88,000kms on it since I bought it in 2015…

But a while ago, I had some serious concerns regarding my lower back that made me wonder if my ability to ride was at the end…

I had organized a ride, and the day before we were to leave I bent over to do something, and my back went. I didn’t know what I had done, just that it wasn’t good. At all.

The ride I had planned was definitely out as I couldn’t even get the bike off the stand. 

I emailed everyone to let them know I was sidelined and told them to have a great time. I remember wondering “Will I be able to ride any more this summer?”

A friend of mine referred me to Dr. Joe Tanti, and I’m grateful he did. 

I was riding again after the first treatment. No pain immediately after the adjustment (although I felt a bit like a pretzel afterwards…)

That’s pretty normal though. 

But you’re probably wondering: “Robyn, where are you going with this?” 

So here it is:

We’re going on a bike trip to Greece next year, and I am looking forward to it again now that my back will allow it, thanks to Dr. Joe.

I want you to know that if you have lower back pain – or any other joint related pain – I’d highly recommend you visit Dr. Tanti and let him have a look.

Of the 6 people I ride with regularly, 3 now see Dr. Joe as well.

Two of us are thrilled with the care we get, and the results we’ve had but the third is still a ‘work-in-progress…”

Now, Dr. Joe is starting on my shoulder. It’s still early, but the results so far are encouraging. (I’ve broken a lot of bones in my life so there’s lots to fix!)

In my time as Chief Commissioner of Strathcona County I’ve met a LOT of people. So I draw from a lot of relationship experience when I recommend someone – and Dr. Joe Tanti is someone I’d recommend you get to know.

I hope your health is such that you never need to reach out BUT, if you’re ever in pain, joints just seem to hurt, or you’re getting headaches, give Joe a call.

I’m glad I did and I certain you will be too.


Your friend,


I found a solution and it might help you too

Good Day!

I was asked if I would write a little something… something that will definitely make your life easier and of course I said YES!

Hi there, my name is Patricia Stransky. You and I have never met, but we probably have a lot in common when it comes to our health. Things like:

  • I was in pain and wasn’t able to do much. In my case, it was due to injuries from a car accident.
  • I couldn’t even do simple household chores without pain. I was starting to put on extra weight, and the doctor’s prescription drugs weren’t helping.
  • I had progressed as far as I felt I could with physiotherapy. 

Your life may be different, of course. Yet you’re still facing problems that slow you down. But the reason I’m writing is because I found a solution and it might help you too. His name is Dr. Joseph Tanti and he has been the added support that I was looking for. 

I found him at the Capilano Chiropractic Clinic. I made a phone call and they answered all my questions, so I decided to give them a try. Here’s what happened next ...

  • Dr. Tanti took the time to fully explain how he could help me. But before offering me a treatment plan, he consulted with my Physiotherapist ensuring that the plan was right for me. 
  • Dr. Tanti was NOT going to do anything I was uncomfortable with. For example, I am not comfortable having my neck ‘cracked’, so he used other methods to provide me with relief.
  • After one month, I felt the best I had been since the accident over a year earlier! Better yet, now I’m completely off the pain pills!
  • Dr. Tanti and the folks at Capilano Chiropractic treated me very well, and have been instrumental in giving me my life back. I can do regular household chores without experiencing excruciating pain and have taken up some of my hobbies that I hadn’t been able to do, like gardening. I feel better than ever! The folks at Capilano Chiropractic are incredible!

I encourage you to call Dr. Tanti’s office with any questions you may have. He’s knowledgeable, friendly, and he won’t try to sell you anything you don’t need. You can call him at 587-604-6462

Or if you’re not ready to talk to anyone, Dr. Tanti can email you a helpful report to explain what’s possible to relieve your pain. Just send an email to my friend Dr. Joe - [email protected]

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. I hope that you give Dr. Joe a try! 

Patricia Stransky
Edmonton, AB

P.S. I don’t make a penny for recommending Dr. Joe. I’m just happy to tell others about how he helped give me my life back. I’m now completely off the pain pills. You can call Dr. Joe to learn more at 587-604-6462. Or send an email to [email protected]

Not a “one size fits all” chiropractor

I hope you’re doing well.

I am and that’s actually the reason for this letter.

Lately, I’ve been feeling really good.

Years ago, starting when my car was rear-ended, I wasn’t doing so well.

I had never liked the idea of going to a chiropractor, I had heard too many stories. I was convinced that chiropractic adjustments weren't for me.

The car accident left me no choice. I was in pain. So I chose a chiropractor that was just a few doors from the office and I went for an adjustment. I would like to tell you it worked out. It did not.

I tried numerous other chiropractors but the treatment protocols they used felt too aggressive for me and I wasn’t getting results.

Eventually, someone recommended a chiropractor that had cared for a few of the Vancouver Canucks. HE listened, explained his recommendations and made sure I was comfortable with the treatment plan BEFORE proceeding. I was VERY happy and my body was feeling the results.

Then I moved to Edmonton…

I tried a few different chiropractors and the results were disappointing.  A few seemed to have poor listening skills and I actually walked out on one in the middle of the session. That doctor was not listening to me and my body was not reacting well to what felt like aggressive adjustments. 

It took a while but I finally found a good local chiropractor that I was very happy with. That is, happy until he retired.

Luckily, I heard about, and tried, Dr. Joe Tanti. 

I said “yes” to Dr. Tanti and I’ve never looked back. In fact, it’s been amazing.

So much so that Dr. Joe is the reason for this letter.

If you have chronic pain and you’re not seeing the results your body needs, you owe it to yourself to give Dr. Tanti a try.

If you’re like me, you’ll likely notice the difference immediately. First, Dr. Joe is not a “one size fits all” chiropractor, he approaches you as the individual you are. He listens and wants to know your story and will dig into your “why” and get to know “who” you are.

Because he took the time to understand ME and learn what I needed him to do, I found his treatments both gentle and effective. There’s nothing scary with what he does.

At the end of each session, before I leave, Dr. Tanti does a few more small checks just to make sure “I’m good.” 

I can tell he listens because he revisits what I said when I arrived and he makes sure all my questions and concerns have been answered. In fact, Dr. Tanti has taken time to speak with me on the phone when I was unable to make it to the office.

One last thing…

Recently, I began getting Shockwave treatments on my shoulder. The Shockwave treatments themselves can be very uncomfortable (less so after each treatment), but it’s been worth it because my shoulder mobility is so much better. I’m glad Dr. Tanti suggested it.

I’m grateful to have Dr. Joe as my chiropractor.

The next time you have any pain, headaches, or injury from trauma, I urge you to give Dr. Joe Tanti a try.

The best way to contact him is at 780.469.4881.

Have a wonderful day!



P.S. Terry is seeing Dr. Tanti now too. His wrist pain had been getting worse (and his golf scores were suffering lol) so I suggested he see Dr. Tanti about Shockwave for his wrists. Now, Terry’s left wrist is 90% pain-free and the right about 80% pain-free. Not only are Terry’s golf scores improving, but Terry can again use his wrists to do things he had not been able to do in some time. The Shockwave treatments have really worked for both of us.

I feel over 80% better!

I’ve been dealing with back pain  and sciatica since my 2nd pregnancy. It would typically go away on its own after I rested, so I didn’t think much about it.

This time was different. The pain didn’t go away. It just kept getting worse. It had gotten to the point where I no longer wanted to pick up or play with Ashton any more because I literally couldn’t get out of bed the next day if I did.

I’m sure as a mother, you can imagine this is very hard to say. Imagine being too scarred to pick up your 2 year old son, or to vacuum the house, or do any chores because if you did, you’d be stuck in bed for the next few days.

I finally decided I needed to get some help, and I found a chiropractor.

I’ve seen Dr. Joe for about 3 weeks now, and I feel over 80% better!

The other day I vacuumed, went for a walk with the kids, and even picked up Ashton half way through our walk because he was tired…and my back felt fine! We even went camping over the weekend!

It was a bit sore, but I was still able to do everything, and more importantly, spend time having fun with the kids and family.

Dr. Joe gave me some exercises, and showed me how move so I don't hurt my back.

I don’t ever want to feel that I can’t play or take care of my kids again, and I know you feel the same way.

That why I wanted to let you know, if you’re dealing with back or hip pain, and it’s interfering with you and your children, call Dr. Joe.


Your ‘mom friend’


After one treatment from Dr. Joe I felt 99% better!

I have two kids, and I just finished my maternity leave so I’m slowly transitioning back to work at the U of A. What you likely don’t know, is that I’ve been dealing with back pain for most of my adult life.

It was a lot worse when I was pregnant with Everett, but overall I’ve been able to manage it.

Until a few weeks ago…

We were moving a bunch of furniture around, and I was taking care of the kids (trying to wrangle them up), and afterwards my back completely seized up on me.

I don’t know if you’ve ever had intense back pain like this before, but I wouldn’t recommend it. I couldn’t do much of anything. 

Bending over, even getting out of bed was next to impossible. But I’ve got two young kids to take care of, so thankfully a handful of Robax and Tylenol took the edge off enough so that I was able to get through the next few days somehow.

When it wasn’t getting any better I called the chiropractor that I’ve been to a few years ago, but they were on vacation so I couldn’t get in. Next I turned to Google, and I found Capilano Chiropractic.

After one treatment from Dr. Joe I felt 99% better!

Now that my back is feeling as good as new, we are going to start working on my headaches and Migraines that I’ve had for years.  I’m a mess I know, but hopefully with a few more chiropractic treatments with Dr. Joe my head won’t feel like its going to explode nearly every day.

Coincidently enough, both of our son’s names are Everett, and go to the same daycare. He told me that his Everett is just as wild as mine. I’m not quite sure if that’s true or not. I haven’t heard him yelling ‘EVERETT STOP RUNING ACROSS THE PARKING LOT!” yet.

But I do know that if you are dealing with back pain, or other aches and pains, you should give Dr. Joe a call. While I hope you never have to use them, I’ve included a few of his cards just incase.


Your Friend,

Lindsay Moores

I’ve not had a migraine since seeing Dr. Tanti!

It’s been a little over 3 months now since I was rear-ended in my car and after the other injuries and surgeries I had, this was going to set me back even further.

Or so I thought…

And that’s the reason for this letter. 

In the last year, I’m made some remarkable progress – and not just with the accident injuries. So much progress that I feel obligated to share how I did it with you because if you ever have chronic pain, headaches or some loss of function, you absolutely need to meet Dr. Joe Tanti.

I had occasional migraines before I got hit but since the accident, they became more frequent and severe. On top of that, after the accident, a friend noticed some bruising – the accident caused trauma to my head, neck, hips, and knee – and recommended I see a chiropractor.

Honestly, I was hesitant to go. You hear about all the horror stories so instead, I decided to see my regular doctor. I was told it would be a few weeks, then I’d likely need a referral…

With the pain I was in, waiting for weeks wasn’t an option.

I did what most of us would do when we need expert advice and Googled “chiropractor near me”.

It was sheer luck I chose Dr. Joe Tanti.

Because of all of those horror stories I had heard, my expectations for my first visit were pretty low.

It was quite the opposite.

Almost immediately, Dr. Tanti got me relaxed about chiropractic. 

It started with his holistic approach of assessing the entire body and not just my “pain points”. He did the assessment, answered all my questions, took the time to get to know me and put me at ease. 

Interestingly, Dr. Tanti noticed my gait was “off” during the assessment. Initially, this had been due to a hiking injury and surgery to my knee. But it had become worse because of the trauma to my hips and knee as a result of the accident. 

At the end of the assessment, there was no pressure to have me sign onto a treatment program and instead, suggested I make the first appointment which I did.

Honestly, I was surprised at the first appointment. I expected I would have a treatment, and leave. Instead, before the treatment, Dr. Tanti reviewed how I was feeling and where I was at. He examined the different pain areas I had and explained everything about what he thought he should do.

The first treatment was on my neck and shoulders and at the end of the session, I felt noticeably more relaxed.

Since the accident, I’ve seen Dr. Tanti several times and we’ve worked on all the different problem areas. 

As a result, I’ve gained more movement and mobility and I’ve been able to resume many of the active lifestyle activities that I had to stop, especially since the accident. I’m also happy to report I’ve not had a migraine since seeing Dr. Tanti!

Other people have noticed the improvement too. My nephew was following me up the stairs at a football game and told me he was “amazed” at how easily I was climbing the stairs. Previously, my knee wouldn’t bend normally and I had to “drag one leg” to get up the stairs. My great-niece wanted me to support her while she was learning to ride her bike. Even a year prior, there would have been no way I could keep up. Now, I can slow jog beside her without a problem!

Truthfully, I got lucky.

When I describe my time with Dr. Tanti to friends that also see a chiropractor, they’re amazed. 

Dr. Tanti has been amazing at developing a respectful, trusting relationship with me. My “15-minute appointments” are rarely 15 minutes. Dr. Tanti takes the time I need to put me at ease with him, his treatment recommendations, and chiropractic.

If you ever find yourself suffering from chronic pain, headaches, or pain from trauma, DON’T try your luck on Google! Give Dr. Tanti a try. I know you’ll be grateful you did.

We have been receiving chiropractic services for more than thirty years and consider ourselves most fortunate to have been referred to Dr Tanti following the retirement of our original chiropractor, “Dr. Bob” about six months ago.

Our first appointment with Dr. Tanti (who we now call “Dr. Joe”) included a “meet and greet”: he learned about the state of our health and what we hoped to receive from our chiropractor. He provided information about his training, his views concerning chiropractic adjustments (definitely not a “bone crusher-my words) and his family life as a proud father. Dr. Joe then gave us our first adjustments as his new patients.

We schedule monthly appointments with Dr. Joe, and the helpful reception staff have found time in his schedule when a special need arises.
