Happy Birthday Chiropractic
Today is recognized as the day chiropractic was born!
123 years ago, a man named DD Palmer delivered the first ever chiropractic adjustment to Harvey Lillard. This man explained to DD that 17 years ago, he felt a “pop” in his back and had been deaf ever since.
After an examination, DD discovered a misaligned bone in Mr. Lillard’s spine which he hypothesized had been there since the injury. That same day, DD delivered the chiropractic adjustment, and Mr. Lillard’s hearing was miraculously restored!
DD never theorized that chiropractic was somehow a “cure for deafness”, but he knew that the spine influences nervous system function. When interference is removed from this system, communication between brain and body is restored. In Mr. Lillard’s specific case correcting the structural problem cause by his injury remedied his hearing loss.
Thanks to the events of that day, DD was inspired to continue researching and developing what would eventually become one of the most successful healthcare practices of today!
