History

The Vitruvian man

Manual manipulation of the spine and other joints in the body have been around for a long time. Ancient writings from China and Greece dating between 2700 B.C. and 1500 B.C. mention spinal manipulation and the maneuvering of the lower extremities to ease low back pain. In fact, Hippocrates, the famous Greek physician who lived from 460 to 357 B.C., published a text detailing the importance of manual manipulation. In one of his writings he declares, "Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases." Evidence of manual manipulation of the body has been found among the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Babylon, Syria, Japan, the Incas, Mayans, and Native Americans.

The official beginning of the chiropractic profession dates back to 1895 when Daniel David Palmer restored the hearing of Harvey Lillard by manually adjusting his neck and something told him that he was on to something good. Two years later, in 1897, Dr. Palmer went on to begin the Palmer School of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, which continues to train doctors of chiropractic to this day.

Throughout the twentieth century, the profession of chiropractic has gained considerable recognition and scientific support. Research studies that have clearly demonstrated the value of chiropractic care in reducing health care costs, improving recovery rates and increasing patient satisfaction. In fact, one very large study conducted in Canada, the 1993 Manga Study, concluded that chiropractic care would save hundreds of millions of dollars annually in work disability payments and direct health care costs. Several major studies conducted by the U.S. Government, the Rand Corporation and others, have all demonstrated the incredible value of chiropractic care.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have gone to chiropractors for about 15 years. I have had at least 5 steady chiropractors in those 15 years. I am proud to say that Karen and Lisa have been one of the best. Not only do they do good work, they are very caring and understanding. They sincerely care about their patients."
    Debbie B.
  • "My mother introduced me to this chiropractry because of my lower back pain. I have had this since I was 5, (I am 12 now) and not even surgeon's could tell why. I have also had childhood migranes and chronic ear infections. Since being treated and being given stretches, my migranes have decreased intensly. My posture has been helped immensely."

  • "Since receiving treatment over the past four months I have been able to move my neck left and right. I don't get dizzy when I tilt my head back. I've forgotten what pain I was in before I came here and a side effect is no more chronic earaches!"
