Happy Birthday Chiropractic!

Chiropractic, the only health care system discovered and developed in America, celebrated a birthday last week. On Sept. 18, 1895, Dr. D.D. Palmer of Davenport, Iowa, gave the first chiropractic adjustment. His patient was Harvey Lillard, a janitor in Palmer’s building who had been deaf since a traumatic accident several years earlier. Palmer, who had been studying the spine and nerve system, found a bump on Lillard’s upper spine that he presumed to be a spinal bone out of position (a subluxation).

After the doctor adjusted that bump several times, soon Lillard could hear again, thus the amazing discovery of chiropractic.

Today, subluxations continue to be the root cause of spinal cord and nerve dysfunction and interference causing body breakdown and disease. Subluxation-causing interference to the central nerve system has been found to be the number one cause and constant in all pain, illness and disease.

Today, thanks to D.D. Palmer and his son B.J., 7 million people receive relief from needless pain and suffering every week through chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic is the only method capable of maximizing the natural, God-given strength of the human body and its capacity to heal without using drugs or surgery.

Happy Birthday Chiropractic!
