Amazingly, chiropractic medicine dates back to the time of Hippocrates! He believed that what greatly contributed to the health of an individual was directly related to spinal alignment.
Today’s modern chiropractic dates back to 1895 when Dr. Daniel Palmer adjusted a man who had, 17 years prior, lost their hearing. According to the story, the man had heard something pop in his back just before losing his hearing. His hearing greatly improved just after the adjustment of the man’s misaligned vertebrae. This new technique for healing the body was criticized by the medical community however the people who followed in these footsteps found an amazing new way of dealing with illness and disease. Dr. Palmer’s theories and studies are still being discussed in the chiropractic communities today. Millions of people today who enjoy these life changing benefits may never have had this opportunity without Dr. Palmer’s input into medicine at a time where he was greatly discredited. There are over 20 schools and thousands of students across the country not to mention there is still a school named after Dr. Daniel Palmer.
