Did you know the very first Chiropractic adjustment wasn't for back pain? Here's how it all started as told by our founder Dr. Palmer:
"Harvey Lillard, a janitor, in the Ryan Block, where I had my office, had been so deaf for 17 years that he could not hear the racket of a wagon on the street or the ticking of a watch. I made inquiry as to the cause of his deafness and was informed that when he was exerting himself in a cramped, stooping position, he felt something give way in his back and immediately become deaf.
An examination showed a vertebra racked from its normal position. I reasoned that if that vertebra was replaced, the man's hearing should be restored. With this object in view, a half hour's talk persuaded Mr. Lillard to allow me to replace it. I racked it into position by using the spinous process as a lever and soon the man could hear as before.
There was nothing 'accidental' about this, as it was accomplished with an object n view, and the result expected was obtained. There as nothing 'crude' about this adjustment; it was specific, so much so that no Chiroractic has equaled it."
And that's how Chiropractic was born on September 18, 1985 - good thing Dr. Palmer was a great persuader!
