The First Chiropractic Patient

The first chiropractic patient was treated in 1895. Dr. D.D. Palmer performed the first chiropractic spinal adjustment on his deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard. Lillard’s hearing returned and Palmer thought he had discovered a cure for deafness. But as patients with digestive troubles, sciatica, menstrual trouble, migraines, epilepsy, heart problems, back pain, and many other conditions responded to spinal care, Palmer realized he had discovered something more far-reaching indeed.

Vertebral Subluxation

The doctor of chiropractic analyzes your body for vertebral subluxation, a severe form of spine and nerve stress, by using his/her hands and other analysis tools, and then corrects or removes any spinal nerve stress using various spinal adjustment techniques.

Subluxations come from stress. It may occur in infancy from a difficult or from childhood falls. Later in life, emotional tension or stress can gradually damage your spine or violent injuries from automobile accidents, sports, or work can suddenly knock you “out of whack.”

Nearly everyone eventually gets spinal nerve stress and is affected by subluxations. It is a “hidden epidemic” and therefore we need to have our spines checked for this condition every once in a while, just as we get our eyes, teeth, and blood pressure checked!

Spinal Adjustment

Chiropractors perform treatments by working with the bones and nerves of the spinal column and spinal cord respectively. Chiropractors spend years of highly specialized training in order to locate where misplaced spinal vertebrae are impinging the nerves which travel down the spinal cord and out through the spinal column to the muscles, organs, and glands of the body. After locating the vertebrae impinging the nerves (subluxations) the chiropractor is able to replace the misplaced vertebrae and thus release pressure on the nerves. This is called a spinal adjustment.
