Chiropractic Care Created After Healer Cures Hearing
The natural healing art of chiropractic was first developed by a magnetic healer named D.D. Palmer in 1895. According to history, it all started when Harvey Lillard — a man who was deaf in one ear — went in to see Palmer for his condition hoping that he had something up his sleeve to cure the deafness.
When Palmer learned that Lillard suffered a head injury that preceded his condition, he evaluated his spine and noticed that a vertebra in the upper back seemed wildly out of alignment. According to Palmer:
Palmer coined his manual therapy technique chiropractic, which comes from the two Greek words cheiros (meaning "hand") and praktikos (meaning “practical”) and, when combined, indicates that something is "done by hand".
Since then, countless millions of people across the globe have benefited from this manual therapy that some sources date back to Hippocrates! Chiropractics is now known to improve any number of ailments, including back and neck pain, organ malfunction, asthma, scoliosis, etc.
