A BRIEF HISTORY

Chiropractic is the natural healing art that was founded in 1895 by David Daniel (DD) Palmer.  DD's first adjustment was performed on a gentleman names Harvey Lillard, who was a janitor in the building where DD practiced.

DD's son, Bartlett Joshua Palmer, or BJ as he was commonly known, developed the profession into a science and art while concurrently developing, and staunchly defending, it's philosophy of natural healing, and that it was not medicine.

It was during this time that these 2 gentlemen were developing chiropractic as we know it, that a lot of early chiropractors were being sent to jail for practicing "medicine" without a license.

Chiropractic has come into it's own over the last several decades.  According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), chiropractic is considered #1 in the CAM category (conservative alternative medicine), only being second to faith and prayer.

Most people first visit a chiropractor for pain.  However, they quickly learn that chiropractic can help with so much more than just aches and pains.  A lot of patients have seen asthma go away, arthritis diminish, high blood pressure drop, and stomach issues stop, as well as seeing increased energy, improved sleep, and better quality of life.

Chiropractors see these results because they work intimately with the nerve system, which controls the entire body and has a direct link to the immune system and healing.  Patients will even come in during illness to boost their immune response.
