Happy 122nd Birthday Chiropractic!
Today, 122 years ago, Dr. DD Palmer gave the first chiropractic adjustment to a janitor, Harvey Lillard, who had lost his hearing 17 years prior after hearing a popping sound in his neck while scrubbing with a brush. DD began feeling the man's neck and discovered a vertebra out of position. He decided to manipulate it back in place, which immediately restored the janitor's hearing. From this, chiropractic was born! The profession has grown and developed through the years. Currently, a chiropractic adjustment is performed over 1 million times every business day in the US.
My life would never be the same once my mother Janice took me to my chiropractor for my first adjustment at 12 years old! Since then, I have enjoyed becoming passionate about this amazing, safe, and effective form of healing. I look forward to seeing all of my patients in the office this week!
