History

 

History.jpgDid you know that chiropractic medicine 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 medicine dates back to 1895, when Dr. Daniel Palmer adjusted a man that had lost his hearing 17 years prior.  The story goes that prior to losing his hearing the man had heard something pop in his back. Upon the adjustment of the man’s misaligned vertebrae his hearing greatly improved.

While the medical community criticized this new technique for healing the body, the people who followed in these footsteps found an amazing new way of dealing with illness and disease. Dr. Palmer’s theories are still discussed in the chiropractic industry today. Without this man’s input into medicine in a time where he was greatly discredited, the millions of people today who enjoy the life changing benefits may never have had this opportunity. 

The Palmer College of Chiropratic, is named after Dr. Daniel Palmer and is based in Davenport, Iowa with campuses around the country. There are over 20 schools in the US attracting thousands of chiropractic students.

The Meaning
