Dr. Bethaney L. Allison was born and raised in Tazewell, Virginia. She completed her undergraduate education at Virginia Tech where she received a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology. She moved to Spartanburg, South Carolina in 2010 to pursue her education in chiropractic. In 2013, she earned her Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, South Carolina. After receiving her National Board certification and state licensure in July of 2013, she began practicing in Greenville, South Carolina.
Dr. Bethaney started her chiropractic career with The Joint in 2013 and in 2015 took some time off to explore other options in chiropractic care. After a little over a year of soul searching she returned to The Joint because the philosophy and values of The Joint were exactly what she believed about chiropractic care. Dr. Bethaney became a chiropractor in hopes to improve people’s quality of life and she strongly believes the best way to do that is through routine and affordable chiropractic care.
Whether she’s cruising the streets of the Carolinas on her motorcycle or riding four-wheelers in the mountains of Virginia, Dr. Bethaney enjoys the great outdoors and motorsports. She fell in love with all the great state of South Carolina has to offer and while she may be a Virginia girl born and raised, she’s a Carolina girl at heart.
Dr. Clarence “Clay” Taylor -- You can call him Clay or Dr. Clay if you’d like -- joined The Joint Chiropractic family of healthcare providers in 2019. He received his doctorate of chiropractic from Life University
“The thing I like best about being in the chiropractic field is that I get to help people be better than they thought possible,” Dr. Clay says. “I’ve achieved my lifelong dream since I was 12 years old.
He enjoys biking, weight training, and reading alongside his pit bull Jenny and poodle Loki in his spare time.
Dr. Clay’s first-hand experience with a chiropractor led him down the chiropractic path.
“When I was 12, I was an injured gymnast,” he says. “I couldn’t sleep and I couldn’t breathe without pain. A chiropractor fixed me.”
As a native of Anderson, Dr. Clay’s favorite thing about working in his hometown clinic is pretty obvious: “I get to work in the community that raised me.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Clay says the one thing he must have in his refrigerator “is gluten-free chicken tenders. I make the best chicken sandwiches.”
If he could invite any four people to the dinner party of his dreams, he would include “The Rock,” Dwayne Johnson, as well as self-help guru Tony Robbins, actor Tom Hanks, and physicist Albert Einstein.
“They are all major influencers,” Dr. Clay says, “and I probably wouldn’t have to pay for my tab.”
The coolest thing he has ever done was to go skydiving. “Words fall short of the feeling of falling for thousands of feet,” he says.
Dr. Eric Harrell joined The Joint Chiropractic’s family of healthcare providers in 2019 with his arrival at The Point. He is a graduate of Ithaca College, where he studied exercise science and human performance, and later earned a doctorate in chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College.
“The best thing about being in the chiropractic field, to me, is having the opportunity to help and educate the people within our community about the importance and benefits of receiving chiropractic on a regular basis,” he says. “The other thing is having the opportunity to meet great people within our community.”
In his spare time, Dr. Eric enjoys fishing, grilling, and spending time with his wife and two kids, as well as husky/Labrador mix named Kylo and a cat named Shummy.
Dr. Eric was raised in the Finger Lakes region of New York, and worked in Ithaca and Geneva before migrating to South Carolina, including stops in Summerville and Easley.
“I knew chiropractic was my calling when I was involved in a head-on collision while in undergrad,” he says. “My brother-in-law referred me to his chiropractor for my injuries, and the rest is history.”
Dr. Eric loves working in the Greenville community helping patients and giving them relief.
In Case You Didn’t Know Dr. Eric says the one thing he always keeps handy in his refrigerator is iced coffee: “It starts my morning off and tastes great.” If he could bring any four people from history together for the dinner party of his dreams, Dr. Eric would include an eclectic group that includes singer Lionel Ritchie, astronomer Carl Sagan, talk show icon Johnny Carson, and celebrity chef Bobby Flay.
“Hopefully, Lionel Ritchie would sing but I’d like to thank him for the inspiration his songs have given me throughout my life,” he says. “Carl Sagan, so that I can pick his brain in regards to space exploration. Johnny Carson, because in my opinion, he is the king of comedy. And hopefully Bobby Flay would cook our dinner and teach me a few things while doing it.”
The coolest thing Dr. Eric has done was take a walk with his wife. But it wasn’t an ordinary stroll. “My wife and I walked through a live volcano in St. Lucia,” he says. “It was so cool to see the volcanic crater shooting hot steam far into the air to relieve pressure from below. It was kind of scary too.”
Dr. Kevin Cook became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2020 when he began serving residents at the Anderson clinic location. He loves serving patients here.
“The thing I like best about being a chiropractor is seeing and feeling the change in my patients as care progresses,” he says. “I take great pride and satisfaction in helping others.”
Dr. Kevin -- you can call him by his first name -- is a graduate of University of South Carolina Upstate who focused on psychology and biology; he earned a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies before receiving his doctorate of chiropractic from Sherman College of Chiropractic.
A native of Anderson, Dr. Kevin enjoys driving, listening to music, and being outdoors when he’s not spending time with patients or his cat, a Maine coon tabby named Loki.
Dr. Kevin’s interest in chiropractic as a young man was confirmed after a particularly depressing time in his life. “I found chiropractic from a job search algorithm in eighth grade,” he says. “I found out why much later. In 2016, I lost my grandfather to congestive heart failure. Less than three months later, I lost a friend to suicide. The first time I cared about surviving for my own sake after the funerals was after I got a chiropractic adjustment.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
The one thing Dr. Kevin always keeps in his refrigerator? “Cheese,” he declares. “Need I say more.”
If he could bring together any four characters from history for the dinner party of his dreams, he would include Sue Brown, the developer of bio-geometric integration, and chiropractic pioneers Daniel David Palmer (who founded it) and Clarence Gonstead. “I would include them for an incredibly nerdy night of chiropractic talk,” he says, “and I would include celebrity chef Alton Brown to make the meal.”
Dr. Kevin says the coolest thing he has done was have dinner with Franz Gruter. “He’s a member of the National Council of Switzerland, which is analogous to our House of Representatives,” he says. “It was quite an experience to see how you never know who other people know.”
