Dr. DD Palmer gave the first chiropractic adjustment to Harvey Lillard on
September 18th, 1895. The birthplace of chiropractic? Davenport, Iowa.
That's right, chiropractic has been an American healing art from it's
inception. Over the generations, chiropractic evolved into a specialized
field of health-care that focuses on the proper function of the nervous
system, by careful assessment of nearby structures, such as the spine, and
making changes naturally that reduce interference with nerves.
Understanding that ALL functions of our body are controlled by our nervous
system, such as our immune system, and cardiovascular system, is to
understand why chiropractic plays such a critical role in the health and
longevity of millions of people.
