Dr. Linda Tarpley earned her Doctorate of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree with Magna Cum Laude honors in 2004 from Sherman College of Chiropractic. Prior to this, she served in an internship at Life University College of Chiropractic in Georgia. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Montclair State University in New Jersey. In earlier years, Dr. Tarpley served in the US Army Reserves and ROTC through Seton Hall University in New Jersey.
Pictured with husband, Bob, and their two girls, they quickly fell in love with Upstate South Carolina because of its country fresh living and mountain views. Tarpley Family Chiropractic, LLC was established in 2005 in the community of Holly Springs, serving neighbors in Inman/Lyman/Greer/Campobello/Wellford, and equidistant to downtowns Greenville and Spartanburg. The custom-built home office has completely separate office entrance for serving patients. “It is special to live and work in one community, serving neighbors and friends, as doctors did in days of old.”
When asked why she chose Chiropractic as a career, Dr. Linda will tell you that “As a child, both my parents sought more ‘natural’ routes to healthy living. Chiropractic made simple sense and was a natural progression of the values I was taught.”
Dr. Tarpley has extensive experience caring for newborn babies and children in her practice, “It is truly an honor when parents entrust their newborns to my care, knowing that they will receive a gentle touch, carefully applied, considering their tiny size. Parents often drop into our office on their way home from the hospital or birthing center with their newborn. It is not unusual here to have pregnant women driven to my office by their midwives during labor. They love our custom pregnancy table which gives total comfort through the nine months of pregnancy.”
Pregnancy can be difficult on mommy, and the birth process traumatic on baby. As a mother herself, Dr. Linda checked her own daughters’ spines soon after their births. “The upper neck is an important concern. I make sure it feels fine and is free of subluxation.”
Dr. Tarpley describes her newborn adjustment: “as gentle as feeling the consistency of a peach.” When one considers the stress on the spine and neck from life inside the womb, and then the trauma of the birth process, it is prudent to have baby’s spine checked soon after birth.
