Brief History of Chiropractic

Do you know someone with a hearing difficulty?  Amazingly, the first chiropractic adjustment, done in Davenport, Iowa on September 18, 1895, and performed by Dr. Daniel Palmer, was for this very problem. Dr. Palmer, a Canadian-born teacher and healer, was, at the time, studying the cause and effect of disease. His patient was Harvey Lillard, a janitor working in the same building as Dr. Palmer. Mr. Lillard, who had complained of hearing problems for over 17 years, allowed Dr. Palmer to examine his spine. Dr. Palmer discovered a "lump" on Mr. Lillard's back and suspected that a vertebra might be out of place. He then repositioned the vertebra with a gentle thrust. After several such treatments, much of Mr. Lillard's hearing was restored.

Since Dr. Palmer's first chiropractic adjustment, the art and science of chiropractic has progressed significantly. Today, advanced diagnostic procedures, sophisticated equipment, scientific research, and the growing acceptance among other health care professionals makes chiropractic a popular health care choice.

"Sharp pains in my knee have been a problem since I was in the 5th grade and had surgery on the growth plates. The pain has gone from a 5 to a 1 after seeing Dr. Bolton. He is a great man, and everyone needs to see him. He knows what he is doing!"
