Tracey A. Littrell, DC, DACBR, DIANM
Dr. Littrell graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Psychology. After several years working in the mental health field in psychiatric hospitals and halfway houses, she changed her career plans following several months of care with her first chiropractor. She realized she wanted the type of relationship with her patients he had with his patients and she moved to Davenport, Iowa to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic.
After graduation, she did locum tenens coverage for vacationing chiropractors (something she occasionally does today to help her colleagues take well-deserved breaks), private practice, and served as adjunct faculty in the Palmer Clinics. At Palmer, in addition to working in the Clinics, she was the Coordinator of Clinical Academics, before transitioning to the Diagnosis and Radiology Department. Since earning her diplomate in radiology (DACBR), she has also earned her diplomate in orthopedics (DACO; now the International Academy of Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine/DIANM), and her certification in sports chiropractic (CCSP).
At Palmer, she wears many hats: Associate professor, Title IX investigator, Ethics hearing panel member, and a member of many College committees. Outside Palmer, she operates her own business, Littrell Radiology, LLC, as a chiropractic radiologist, she is the Executive Vice President of the ACRRT; an assistant editor for the Journal of the International Academy of Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine; the radiology editor and contributing author for DC Tracts; and a frequent continuing education instructor for Palmer, for Parker Seminars, and for several state and international associations.
