I.How was chiropractic discovered?
Chiropractic was discovered by Daniel David Palmer in 1895. D.D. was a self-proclaimed magnetic healer, using his hands to restore the energy flow of the body. There was a janitor in his office building that had not been able to hear for approximately seventeen years.
One day he offered to help the janitor, Harvey Lillard, if he could. D.D. palpated Harvey’s spine and found a bump on his neck. Harvey explained that he had “heard a snap” one day while bending over and then the bump appeared. D.D. placed his hands on the bump and gave a thrust. Harvey’s hearing was restored and chiropractic was discovered
