1895 is the year chiropractic was distinguished a separate health care practice. DD Palmer started the scientific study of specific corrections to spinal alignment. DD Palmer defined chiropractic as:
“a philosophy, science and art of things natural; a system of adjusting the segments of the spinal column by hand only, for the correction of the cause of dis-ease.”
Later in 1895, DD moved to Iowa, where the janitor in his building, Harvey Lillard was working. DD soon found out that Harvey was a deaf man, but this was not always so. He stated, after squatting, he felt a ‘pop’ in his back, when he stood up, he could no longer hear.
DD surmised that a vertebra must have been displaced causing the man to be deaf. He convinced Lillard to let him adjust the spine and return the alignment to a state of ease. This was his first breakthrough. After adjusting the spine, Lillard could then hear again.
DD Palmer was the discoverer of chiropractic. His son, BJ Palmer was the developer.
BJ developed chiropractic into a scientific, specific method of adjusting misalignments, termed “Vertebral Subluxations.” He also did massive work in the development of chiropractic philosophy, paving the way for true chiropractic pioneers.
Chiropractic 120+ years later is stronger, more scientific, and specific than ever before, we still believe in the overriding vitalism that chiropractic is originally based on, true health comes from within and only from internal change can the cause be corrected.
