This month we are celebrating Chiropractic’s birthday- HOORAY!!On September 18th, Dr Daniel David Palmer delivered the first chiropractic adjustment in 1895 Davenport, Iowa to Harvey Lillard and as such birthed the beginning of chiropractic as the world would know it today. 

Harvey had described to DD Palmer that he had lost hearing in his left ear for 17 years after working in a ‘cramped, stooping position’ and felt something give way in his back, immediately bringing on the deafness. DD Palmer examined his spine, locating a misaligned vertebra and hypothesised that this was the cause of Harvey’s deafness. DD Palmer adjusted Harvey, and his hearing returned almost instantly.

From that moment, DD dedicated himself to the location and realignment of spinal vertebra, experiencing exciting positive benefits in a wide variety of health concerns.DD Palmer discovered that chiropractic was in fact not a cure for anything, but simply a way of allowing the body to work better by removing nerve interference caused by dysfunction of the spine.

‘The beauty about Chiropractic is the fact that it works with natural means. It puts nothing new into the body, nor does it take away any natural gland or organ. Chiropractic simply releases life forces within the body, sets free rivulets of energy over nerves, and lets nature do her work in a normal manner.’

It is as simple as that.
