Happy 120th Birthday Chiropractic!

September 18, 1895 is the birthday of chiropractic. The first chiropractic adjustment was carried out on September 18.1895, by Dr. Daniel David Palmer, a professor and healer of Canadian origin. Dr. Palmer was at that time studying the causes and effects of the disease.

Mr. Harvey Lillard, who had complained of hearing problems for over 17 years, allowed Dr. Palmer to examine his spine. Dr. Palmer discovered a “lump” in the middle back of Mr. Lillard and suspected that a vertebra was out of place.
Dr. Palmer adjusted the vertebra with a gentle thrust. After several adjustments, much of Mr. Lillard’s hearing was restored.

For 120 years, chiropractors have introduced their customers to the best doctor in the world … that which lives within them!

  • This is what we have achieved so far:

  • Chiropractic profession is the largest in the world without drugs cure.

  • urrently, chiropractors are practicing in over 100 countries worldwide.

  • There are about 65,000 chiropractors in the US only, and another 13,000 worldwide.

  • Statistics show that 10-15% of the US population (30 to 40 million) have seen a chiropractor.

  • Those numbers are increasing as more people get tired of the failure of conventional medicine to give them what they really want … HEALTH!

  • A principle that continues to attract the masses to chiropractic – recognition of an innate intelligence in all living-beings, and the endless pursuit of restoring life through free expression.

Not bad for only 120 years! Here’s to the next 120!
