Meet Dr. Dan Turo, PRS Chiropractor
Dr. Dan has been fascinated with health from a young age. At 12 years old, he began to overcome his asthma through organized school sports including football, basketball, and track and field. Looking back, he realizes how unhealthy a child he actually was, suffering from chronic ear infections, asthma, and allergies. Although these may be considered “normal” for children in our country, Dr. Dan will tell you after his 10 years of studies that these conditions and many others are far from leading a healthy life.
Having just moved to the North Allegheny School District as a high school junior, Dr. Dan had the opportunity to enroll in an anatomy and physiology course, which illuminated his pursuit towards a career in health care.
He completed his bachelor of science degree in Kinesiology (the study of movement) at The Pennsylvania State University and graduated Cum Laude in Fall 2006. He found his true calling while researching and touring the Life University campus and their College of Chiropractic located in Marietta, GA.
Music to his ears, he attentively listened to the philosophical teachings that all life is innately intelligent and that each of us is born to be healthy provided that there is no interference to the nervous system, the primary communicator and coordinator of the body.
He excelled through the program and rounded out his clinical experience under a great mentor, Dr. Bob DeMaria, The World’s Drugless Doctor. Dr. Dan graduated Magna Cum Laude in March of 2011 and reaffirms each day that chiropractic is the best avenue for which he can serve his community and all of humanity.
During his educational journey, Dr. Dan married his high school sweet heart, Erin who now runs their office. The Turos have two young sons (Ethan and Sammy) and round out their family with two rescued pit bull mixes (Duke and Daisy).
Dr. Dan is ecstatic to be back in the North Hills of Pittsburgh serving his community through speaking engagements, health care classes, volunteering and of course… adjusting spines one day at a time!
Meet Angela Turo, Salutogenic Specialist
I completed my undergraduate degree at Penn State in Biobehavioral Health, which focused on the integration of biology, psychology, and sociology. We looked at health as a whole, and my focus specially was in health promotion. I eventually was steered toward the world of research, and have spent the past several years working as research coordinator for various health-related studies. However, I realized my true passion lies in health and wellness and working with people, and pursued my master degree in Wellness and Human Performance from the University of Pittsburgh, learning how to use diet and exercise to do everything from help optimize athletic performance to manage chronic disease. I quickly found my niche again in the health promotion realm. When I recently started teaching kickboxing at a local studio, this affirmed what I knew all along, my true passion lies in working with people and helping them live healthy lives!
My knowledge and skills from my education are deepened by my own personal struggle to achieve my optimal healthy lifestyle and the discovery of exercise as a true medicine in my life. I struggled with chronic back pain for years until I was finally able to work with someone who helped me get back into physical shape. She met me where I was and worked with me to the point where my results exceeded both our expectations. Five years ago, I could barely go out for a walk because of my pain, now I’m healthy, active, managing my stress, and teach kickboxing classes in my free time! Over the years, I didn’t just learn to manage my pain, I learned how to live a healthy life and conquer my pain! Exercise, particularly kickboxing, has brought me pure joy, empowerment, and a sense of identity when it comes to my health. My stress and anxiety melted away, as did the pounds I had put on over the years, and I felt an unbelievable transformation physically, mentally, and emotionally.
I was drawn to Dr. Dan’s Salutogenic-focused philosophy as it is very similar to what I practice in my own life and have preached to others over the years. I personally want to live a long life, but more importantly I understand the importance of living as many healthy years as possible. Salutogenesis focuses on the factors that promote health, rather than focusing on treating disease. We all have our own unique barriers in life that are preventing us from making healthy choices. There is no one-size-fits-all diet and exercise plan, because we are not the same! I want to help guide people in overcoming their barriers, increasing knowledge about exercise, nutrition, stress-reduction, and time management, and discovering their personal best self. We will discuss goals and work together to help you discover your own passion for health and obtain your optimal lifestyle. I am honored to be a member of the Turo Family Chiropractic team and look forward to helping our patients get healthy and stay healthy for life!

Did you know that both boys had their first adjustment when they were just hours old? Being born is tough work!
Now they are healthy, happy kids who have their spine checked often, but rarely need an adjustment – little bodies are amazing things!
