The Origin Of Chiropractic

There is no doubt that Chiropractic is now the fastest growing, biggest, drugless healing profession in the world!

To understand what chiropractic is all about, we resorted to Wikipedia to know the definition,

Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine that emphasizes diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, under the belief that these disorders affect general health via the nervous system. Many chiropractors reject being characterized as complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). It is a healthcare profession, and although chiropractors have many similarities to primary care providers, they are more similar to a medical specialty like dentistry or podiatry.

Chiropractic was formally recognized as an actual profession in 1895. But even before Chiropractic began, early healers in the history of the world were already familiar with the notion of health and its relationship to the condition of the spine. The father of modern medicine was even quoted saying, ” Look well to the spinal area for the cause and prevention of disease.” Hippocrates (460 BC) is considered as the father of modern medicine.

September 18, 1895 marks the first ever recorded chiropractic success. DD Palmer, a magnetic healer at that time, performed spine adjustments on a man with 17 years of deafness which cured the man of his disability. Over the succeeding months, patients from all over to see Palmer, with every conceivable problem, including but not limited to the flu, sciatica, migraine headaches, stomach complaints, epilepsy and heart trouble.

Though Palmer (the founder of chiropractic) in no way used drugs with his conservative spinal adjustments, fevers broke, pain ended, infections healed, vision improved, stomach disorders disappeared, and of course, hearing returned.

120 years later, chiropractic is now the leading non-medical treatment to cure various health concerns. This is why I love being a chiropractor and seeing ‘miracles’ occur every day. No drugs and nothing removed except interference to the nervous system!! !
