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 held an internship at Life University College of Chiropractic in Georgia. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Montclair State University, New Jersey. In her early years Dr. Tarpley served in the United States Army Reserves Military Intelligence Unit, and ROTC during her undergrad years through Seton Hall University, New Jersey.
Pictured with husband, Bob, and their two girls, the couple 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 Inman/Lyman community of Holly Springs, just 10 miles north of BMW Manufacturing, and serving nearby Inman/Lyman/Greer/Campobello/Wellford, equidistant to downtowns Greenville and Spartanburg. Their custom-built home office has completely separate office entrance for serving patients of their community. Dr. Tarpley states that “It is special to me 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 an honor when parents place their newborn in my hands, knowing that they will receive a gentle touch, carefully applied for their tiny size. Parents have dropped in on their way home from the hospital or birthing center with their newborn. It is not unusual here to have a pregnant woman driven to my office by her midwife while in labor. Mom’s-to-be love our custom pregnancy table which gives total comfort through all 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. Dr. Tarpley describes her newborn adjustment 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.
