Chiropractic has been around since the beginning of recorded time. There have been findings of ancient Greek writing that talks about manipulation of the spine and adjusting the lower spine to ease back pain. Chiropractic was brought to the United States later in history by Daniel Palmer, who gave it the name “chiropractic”. Chiropractic comes from the Greek words cheir (hand) and praktos (done). Palmer’s first chiropractic adjustment was done on a deaf janitor in 1895. The janitor had gone deaf 17 years earlier, after feeling something “give” in his back. Palmer discovered a misplaced vertebra in the man’s back and adjusted it to the point where the man could hear again. Palmer went on to create the first Chiropractic college in the nation, called Palmer School of Chiropractic located in Davenport, Iowa. It was criticized for being phony and not working for years and it was illegal for a period of time in the United States. Eventually, it was legalized by all 50 states and became a much more respected practice.
Today, chiropractic has gained much recognition and is one of the fastest growing fields in the United States. People are turning away from outrageous hospital bills and are trying chiropractic to heal their problems. Many people do not realize that a healthy diet and regular exercise would stop many of the problems that have brought them down physically and emotionally for years. After having several spinal adjusting treatments most people believe that chiropractic really works. The body has a remarkable way of healing itself and with slight spinal adjustments it is able to work to its highest ability.
