About Doctor Tripp
“Anyone who can play the xylophone ought to be able to work on a spine.” -- Captain Beefheart (aka Don Vliet), 1978

Dr. Tripp attended chiropractic school in Los Angeles at the Cleveland Chiropractic College, where he attained both his Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Chiropractic degrees. Dr. Carl S. Cleveland, Sr. was one of the pioneers of chiropractic during the early 20th Century whose emphasis on chiropractic philosophy and principles deeply inspired Dr. Tripp.

He practiced in Hollywood, California for one year before establishing a practice in McKinleyville, California on the Redwood Coast for 17 years. Weary of California governmental oppression, Dr. Tripp opened his present Gulfport, Mississippi practice in May of 2000.
