Chiropractic's Birthday - Sept. 18th... 122 Years in the Making

Above is what occurred as the first Chiropractic adjustment back on Sept. 18th, 1895.  This is what started the Chiropractic profession and which ended up changing millions of lives since then.  Since that first adjustment, the profession has evolved in many different directions and forms.  From one specific technique on how to provide an adjustment, it has gone to over 250 different types of chiropractic techniques.  The wisdom that started back in the early 1900s, science is now backing up, providing to be true.  And what a blessing it has been for me, to be a part of this profession for the past 7 years, being able to change the lives of 1000s of human beings in just a short time.

When I talk about how Chiropractic is not designed for neck pain, back pain or headaches, I always end up with a puzzled look.  When Chiropractic started, it was not helping an individual who was in pain.  Actually, most people who went to a chiropractor back then, were not going for pain issues.  They were going for quality of life issues.  D.D. Palmer was the founder of Chiropractic and he is the gentleman adjusting in the picture above.  What he used to share was how he helped people stop using wheelchairs, canes, walkers, etc., through Chiropractic care.

This picture above is an individual who was sitting underneath all the canes, crutches and so forth, that were people who used to once needed to get around until they went to visit D.D. Palmer and received Chiropractic care.  So, since Chiropractic is not designed for neck pain, back pain and headaches, then what did the first patient go to D.D. Palmer for?

William Harvey Lillard was a janitor in D.D. Palmer’s building and he started to suffer from deafness 17 years ago.  Overtime he was starting to lose his hearing and when he brought this up to D.D. Palmer, D.D. told him, I discovered something that might be able to help you.  Long story short, the first picture is what was performed and within a few days, Harvey’s hearing was almost restored back to 100%.

Chiropractic is a profession that does not treat any conditions, illnesses, diseases or symptoms.  The reason why Harvey had his hearing return back was because D.D. provided a Chiropractic adjustment that helped restore the function of his nervous system.  From there, the body was able to restore itself back to its original state that it is designed to be.  And from there, this is how the body restores itself and heals itself.  You see, your body is designed to heal, organize and regulate itself.  It is build within your DNA.  The role of any doctor is to find what is blocking this healing potential, remove the blockage and let the healing process be facilitated again to do what it is designed to do.

An analogy would be having a kink in a hose.  When the kink exists, there is less water flowing to all the plants.  In the beginning of that process, it is not going to kill the plants but, what is happening, is they are not getting 100% of the water that is needed.  Overtime, the plants will start to wilt and slowly age faster than normal.  Once you remove the kink in the hose, those plants will slowly return back to life if it has not gone past the point of no return.  Your nervous system is this hose and the water is the life it gives to every cell, tissue and organ in your body.  Thankfully, this process takes a very long time to get to the wilting point but the issue in our society today is, we wait until we are at the wilting state to react to care, rather than make sure we don’t have any kinks in the first place.  A Chiropractor will remove those kinks, which will result in over time, an improved quality of life, health, peak performance, improved energy/sleep, and a better version of you every single adjustment.
