Dr. Joe Scota
Dr. Joe Scota was born and spent his early years in Philadelphia, PA. His father's job moved them to the Greenville area during Dr. Scota's high school years, and he graduated from Riverside High School in Greer. Initially resisting the move, Dr. Scota has come to know and love the south as home.
After his undergraduate studies, Dr. Scota graduated from Sherman Chiropractic College in 2001, and moved back to the northeast for the early part of his career. After practicing in New York and Pennsylvania, it was the Lord's will that Dr. Scota move to the south once again. While visiting his father in the spring of 2004, it was Dr. Scota's wife, Sybil, fell in love with the South. At her prompting, and while visiting; Dr. Scota initially met Dr. Popwell through the Christian Chiropractic Association's website. Dr. Popwell and Dr. Scota have been partners at the Popwell Scota Spine Center since 2005.
Dr. Scota is an avid Martial Artist of 30+ years. Having earned 3rd degree black belts in two different systems, he has over 25 years of teaching experience in the martial arts. In early 2013, Dr. Scota once again put on a white belt and started training in the art of Brazilian Jujitsu, where he is currently a blue belt. The Martial Arts is truly a family affair for the Scotas. Dr. Scota’s wife is a fourth degree black belt, and four of their children are currently training. His father, a fifth degree black belt, has owned and operated Scota Karate Academy in Taylors, SC since 1993. Dr. Scota’s knowledge of physical fitness couples nicely with guiding his patients in stretches and exercises to help rehabilitate their conditions.
His oldest daughter, Amber, is currently serving in the United States Air Force. His wife, Sybil, stays busy every day homeschooling their other children, Lucas, Caleb, Joshua and Jocelyn. She also tutors for two different home school co-ops. Dr. Scota readily admits that his wife, as a homeschooling mom, works harder than he does most days!
Dr. Scota and his family are members of Heritage Bible Church and currently reside in Taylors, SC.
