The History of Chiropractic Care

The word “Chiropractic” is derived from the Greek words “cheir” (hand) and “praktos” (done) combined to mean “done by hand.” It was chosen by the developer of chiropractic care, Daniel David Palmer. In 1895, D.D. Palmer performed a chiropractic adjustment on a partially deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, who later reported that his hearing had improved due to the change.

D.D. Palmer opened the first chiropractic school two years later, and in the century since, chiropractic professionals have used spinal adjustments to help people prevent and cope with back pain, carpal tunnel, muscle strain, headaches and migraines, and a variety of other physical ailments. Millions of people benefit from the work of Dr. Palmer today.

How Does Chiropractic Work?

A concise scientific explanation of how chiropractic works is that spinal adjustments directly to the musculoskeletal system (muscle and bone) can reduce pain, increase joint movement, reduce muscle spasms and inflammation, and improve function. This could explain why patients report improvement in overall function.

The main causes of joint dysfunction are mechanical, chemical, and emotional stressors. Mechanical causes include repetitive stress, such as sitting at a desk all day with poor posture. Other mechanical stress can be caused by direct trauma such as a car accident, a fall, or a break. Patients can benefit greatly from chiropractic care by addressing the mechanical causes of joint dysfunction. The second cause of joint dysfunction is due to chemical effects on the body. Chemical imbalances can be caused by a poor diet, smoking, drinking alcohol, etc. The third cause of joint dysfunction is due to emotional or psychological stress.
