Dr David Tharp, D.C.
Playing and coaching baseball, church, and playing with the dogs are favorite activities for Dr. David Tharp, D.C., the newest chiropractic physician at the Ohio Neck & Back Pain Relief Centers across from the mall, next to Kroger.
Dr Tharp, a Marion native, moved back to Marion in early May to practice in the area. After completing undergraduate school in 2008 at Mount Vernon Nazarene University, Dr Tharp began his doctorate at Logan College of Chiropractic in St Louis, Missouri. Before going to undergraduate school, Dr Tharp graduated from River Valley High School.
“I am overjoyed to be here,” he said. “I get to come to work every day and help people. This is not only a calling for me, but it is also a blessing.”
Dr Tharp has found that a lot of people have an idea of what a chiropractor is, but they do not usually understand what type of symptoms they can help with.
Chiropractic physicians are trained and skilled with a broad spectrum of techniques to handle all ages. His patients have been from newborns to 92 year-olds. He has had many repeat visits from a variety of family members like moms, sisters and brothers. “One reason I like to be a family chiropractor is I see patients of all ages with various problems,” said Dr Tharp. “I’m not limited to just one area. My interests include all ages.”
Even though Dr Tharp works well over 40 hours a week, he is still able to spend time with his wife and 2 dogs, as well as be active in his church. “I’ve been looking forward to starting into practice here in Marion,” he said. “The people here are so warm, friendly and gracious.” Dr David is married to his wife Deidra Tharp. Dr Tharp and Deidra have been married for 3 years. They live here in Marion, Ohio. Dr Tharp is certified by the Ohio State Chiropractic Board.
