The History Behind Chiropractic Care
It is easy to forget that chiropractic care and spinal care have been around in one form or another almost since the dawn of humankind. Even what we think of as modern chiropractic care is more than a century old. While we cannot claim to have been around that long, we can say that we utilize proven chiropractic methods that focus on treating the cause of your problem.
Historians have found writings dating back to ancient times where not only was back pain resolved by manipulating the spine, but they also knew about the related health benefits of doing so. This was not isolated to one area of the world, as records have been located in Syria, Japan, Egypt, Babylon, China, and Greece. The Greek physician, Hippocrates, was a strong advocate for spinal care and believed it was necessary to avoid disease. It should come as no surprise, then, that the word “chiropractic” comes from the Greek words of “cheir” meaning hand, and “praxis” meaning action.
Modern-day chiropractic care came into focus in the late 1800s, when the Palmer School of Chiropractic was started by Daniel David Palmer, who had learned quite by accident that by manipulating the neck of Harvey Lillard after he had hurt his back and lost his hearing, he had surprisingly restored the man’s hearing. It may have taken a few years since then for chiropractic care to be taken more seriously, but today the medical establishment often works hand-in-hand with chiropractic care, recognizing it for the value it has to offer in pain relief and improved overall health.
