Tino Villani, D.C.

Tino Villani, D.C.

Executive Vice President, Self-Management Programs

“I’ve seen health care fail people with chronic pain. When medicine doesn't support a treatment, it's ignored and unacceptable outcomes are excused. Too often we expose patients to risk when there is little to no chance of benefit, servicing the pain but ignoring the person.”

Tino guides the continuous design improvement of the MOBE program. He began his chiropractic career in private practice and concurrently served as a director for National Chiropractic Mutual Insurance and chairman of the Connecticut State Board of Chiropractic Examiners.

As the founder and CEO of Triad Healthcare, he provided musculoskeletal products and services to commercial health insurers and guided his company through their acquisition by MedSolutions. In 2005, Tino published, Pain is Not a Disease, a book examining the history of pain care and the most effective approach to solving the problem of chronic pain through the parallel stories of two very different patient/doctor relationships.

Tino holds a B.S. in Biology from Adelphi University and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the New York Chiropractic College.
