Why Chiropractic Care?
Many chiropractic patients want to know where the field of chiropractic care first started. Well, this type of care got its start in Davenport, Iowa over a century ago. In 1895, a “magnetic healer” as he was called, by the name of Dr. Palmer operated an office on the corner of 2nd and Brady street in downtown Davenport. Dr. Palmer, as he was known, noticed on that day the janitor who worked in his building was nearly totally deaf.
This janitor was an older gentleman by the name of Harvey Lillard. Upon questioning, (loud questioning) Harvey explained to Dr. Palmer that he had lost most of his hearing 17 years earlier when he was bending over and felt a “pop” in his upper back or neck. Dr. Palmer examined the area and noticed a bump which he determined to be a spinal vertebrae completely out of position. It seemed that Harvey noticed this bump right after he lost his hearing, meaning the two were connected. Having a knowledge of anatomy, Dr. Palmer convinced Harvey to allow him to try to fix it by pushing the bone back into place.
Once the bone was pushed back into place, the janitor regain some (not all) of his hearing. This type of pushing of bones back into their proper place is what led to the field of chiropractic care as we know it today.
