History of Chiropractic Care

For those new to Chiropractic, we have provided a short history about the science. If you have never visited a chiropractor before, please Contact Us, and we will be glad to explain how modern Chiropractic addresses a wide range of diseases in a gentle and non-surgical manner.

Chiropractic was first discovered in 1895 by D.D. Palmer. The first Chiropractic patient was a deaf man by the name of Harvey Lillard. Mr. Lillard, a janitor, had explained to D.D. Plamer that 17 years earlier, he had been in a stooped-over position picking something up, and heard a “pop” in his neck. Mr. Lillard could not even hear a horse carriage clattering down a cobblestone street.

Mr. Palmer, after palpating and finding a large “bump”, persuaded Mr. Lillard to allow him to “rack his bone back into position.” D.D. Palmer theorized that if he could put the bone back into place, Mr. Lillard’s hearing would return. After one adjustment and two days of rest, Mr. Lillard could again hear the ticking of a clock. D.D. Palmer had thought he had found the cure for deafness. What he had discovered was the miracle of unlocking the Vertebral Subluxation.

Years later, B.J. Palmer, D.D. Palmer’s son, became known as the “Developer of Chiropractic.” During the years 1935-1951 B.J. Palmer did extensive research, unraveling the mysteries of the Vertebral Subluxation Complex. This Vertebral Subluxation is found primarily at the C1-C2 level.

B.J. Palmer wrote over 40 volumes of books, developed hundreds of adjusting techniques, was the first person to x-ray a spine, and along with Dossa Evans, developed the first Chiropractic instrument that is still in use today. Simply put, B.J. Palmer was dissatisfied with average results. His life was dedicated to the pursuit of the SPECIFIC.
