Happy Birthday, Chiropractic Care!

Are you one…are you two…are you…128!?

On September 18th, 2023, the natural health modality that has given millions of people across the globe their health back turns 128 years old, and we couldn’t be more proud to continue to help bring the power of gentle, focused adjustments to patients every single day.

To celebrate the day, we’re helping people understand more about the history of chiropractic care. Here are seven little known facts about chiropractic, its beginnings, and how it could benefit you and your loved ones.

  1. The first chiropractic patient was treated in 1895 by Dr. Daniel David Palmer. Palmer developed chiropractic care after he observed that a man who had lost his hearing had his hearing restored after a vertebra was adjusted.
  2. In 1897, Palmer founded the first school of chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.
  3. Chiropractic care is based on the belief that the relationship between the body’s structure (primarily the spine) and its functioning is a significant factor in overall health.
  4. The most popular reason that people visit a chiropractor is lower back pain, followed by neck pain.
  5. There are more than 100,000 licensed chiropractors world wide, making access to chiropractic care available in many countries across the globe.
  6. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to visit a chiropractor forever to feel better. Chiropractors work with you to determine your unique needs and will develop a tailored care plan specific to you. Whether or not you move forward with care, or how often you visit their practice, is entirely up to you.
  7. Chiropractors focus on discovering the root cause of the problem in your body instead of just relieving your symptoms. Our goal is to get you back to living a pain-free, happy, and healthy life without the need for over-the-counter painkillers or prescription medications.
