Did you know that chiropractic dates back to the time of Hippocrates? He believed that if the spine was misaligned, it greatly contributed to the health of an individual.
The modern day school of chiropractic dates back to 1895, when Dr. Daniel Palmer adjusted a man that had lost his hearing 17 years prior. The man reported having heard something "pop" in his neck. After Dr. Palmer adjusted the man's misaligned cervical vertebrae, his hearing greatly improved.
While the medical community criticized this new technique used, doctors of chiropractic that followed in the footsteps of Dr. Palmer found an amazing new way of dealing with illness and disease. Dr. Palmer's theories are still discussed in the chiropractic profession today. Without Dr. Palmer's insight, passion, and skill, millions of people today who enjoy the life changing benefits of chiropractic may never have had this opportunity.
