“Dr. Jolson is by far the best specialist I have ever been to for my back. I hesitate to say chiropractor because he is different than every one that I have been to before. I enjoy the personal accountability that he gives his patients because it puts you on a path to healing and not just a series of band-aid fixes where you become dependent on constant adjustments.” – M.M

“He was much different than any other chiropractor I’ve ever seen, in a good way. If he’s not the best chiropractor in Greenville, I’d be shocked.” – H.J.

“Dr. Jolson has a unique approach with the combination of chiropractic and physical therapy… I learned techniques I can take with me throughout my everyday life to make me stronger and back to practicing yoga to my fullest ability.” – K.L.

Dr. Tanner has been amazing! Throughout my pregnancy, she helped with low back pain and taught me how to move better. My newborn was very colicky and she helped her as well! Truly a lifesaver! The Greenville community is lucky to have her! – B.H.
I can’t say enough good things about Tanner and how much she has helped me, compared to the year I have spent at different chiropractors looking for relief from low back pain. She was thorough in getting my history and took the correct approach to fix the problem and not just put a bandaid on it. This place is AMAZING! – K.F.

It is so hard to put into words how absolutely grateful I am for Dr. Thomas Etue. I arrived barely being able to stand from a back injury with significant pain and sciatica. Dr. Etue listened intently, examined thoroughly, and through his interventions I had some immediate relief. I worked with him in the clinic but also completed the recommended home therapies. I was back on my feet in no time. I can say with certainty that I would not be in as great of a place physically or emotionally without the exceptional help of my Greenville chiropractor, Dr. Etue. Thank you so much! – J.P.
Fran Jolson | Acupuncturist Greenville, SC | Upstate Spine & Sport

Fran Jolson, L.Ac

Fran Jolson is thrilled to be back home in Greenville. She attended Riverside High School and is a graduate of Wake Forest University. In 2016, Fran graduated as valedictorian from National University in Chicago with a Masters of Science in acupuncture. Fran believes in educating and empowering her patients to take charge of their own health and wellness beyond the treatment rooms.

Her path to acupuncture and wellness has been a personal journey. Fran struggled with women’s health and digestive issues and tried different traditional medical providers – but nothing seemed to be working. Finally, Fran decided to take an alternative approach. She began acupuncture treatments, changed her diet and lifestyle, and finally saw results. 

Fran has a passion for treating digestive issues and anxiety disorders and has accrued many continuing education hours in those fields. Fran’s practice also includes treatments for pain management, headaches and migraines, fertility issues, stress, men’s health, psycho-emotional disorders, addictions, and more. Fran uses traditional acupuncture, cupping, acupressure, and moxibustion. Along with East Asian Medicine therapies, she also incorporates a variety of Western techniques into her patient care. 

Outside of the clinic, Fran enjoys keeping up with her three kids, Miles, Max, and Georgia. She also loves spending time with her husband and large Greenville extended family. Fran likes trying out new fitness classes, watching movies, and reading. She’s excited to be back home, serving the Greenville community.
