On September 17th, 1895…this guy,
Delivered the 1st Chiropractic Adjustment to this guy:
The cool story is the 1st guy did exactly what we do:
He listened to the story of the person who needed the adjustment. It sounded like he needed an adjustment. Then Dr Palmer explained what he was thinking. Harvey Lillard, agreed and upon analysis of Mr. Harvey Lillard’s spine, Dr Palmer adjusted the vertebra in question and Viola! the first adjustment was given.
The story gets better since Harvey was pretty much deaf, and after 3 adjustments, could hear the “clatter of the wagon in the streets.” Pretty cool, huh?
Thanks to these two, and 134 years of scraping, clawing and scratching on behalf of a lot of chiropractors in history, we have the right get to get our adjustments! Yes! if we want them of course and no one can stop us! Yes, they used to try to stop us!
And the adjustments can be just as miraculous now as they were then! Time has not interfered with the body’s ability to heal! Read about Harvey Lillard on Wikipedia… it’s pretty close to the way I learned it from the old timers.
So Happy Birthday to you, Chiropractic! And lucky us! and as they say…
“and many more!”
