Although manual therapies for pain and disability have been around for millennia, the first modern chiropractic adjustment was delivered 123 years ago on this date by D. D. Palmer in Davenport, Iowa.
In the last 123 years, countless lives have been touched for the better by the legacy of this first chiropractic adjustment, including my own, first as a patient and also now as a doctor.
I can only imagine how proud D. D. Palmer would be today if he were still here, 123 years later.
How fantastic is chiropractic, you say? Well, it's easy as (here comes the pun I've been setting up for the last three paragraphs...), well, it's easy as 1-2-3. One, it's drug-free... two, it's gentle... three, it's proven effective for most people, both by decades of research and by patient testimonials.
Happy Founder's Day!
