Chiropractic dates back to the time of Hippocrates, widely considered the father of western medicine. He believed that misalignment of the spine could lead to many affects on the health of any given individual.
Modern chiropractic began practice in 1895 when Dr. Daniel Palmer adjusted a man who had lost his hearing years prior. When the man's vertebrae was realigned he heard a large pop, and his hearing after the adjustment greatly improved.
Dr. Palmer's theories are still discussed in the chiropractic industry. The medical community may have criticized Palmer's new method for healing the body, but many have followed in Palmer's footsteps and have found an amazing new way to stay healthy and keep their body and health in optimal form. There are now over 20 chiropractic schools in the country with thousands of students learning the amazing techniques of chiropractic care.
