Can You Hear Me Now

Did you know the very first Chiropractic adjustment wasn’t for back pain? Here’s how it all started as told by our founder Dr. D.D. Palmer…

“Harvey Lillard, a janitor, in the Ryan Block, where I had my office, had been so deaf for 17 years that he could not hear the racket of a wagon on the street or the ticking of a watch. I made inquiry as to the cause of his deafness and was informed that when he was exerting himself in a cramped, stooping position, he felt something give way in his back and immediately became deaf.

An examination showed a vertebra racked from its normal position. I reasoned that if that vertebra was replaced, the man’s hearing should be restored. With this object in view, a half hour’s talk persuaded Mr. Lillard to allow me to replace it. I racked it into position by using the spinous process as a lever and soon the man could hear as before.

There was nothing “accidental” about this, as it was accomplished with an object in view, and the result expected was obtained. There was nothing “crude” about this adjustment; it was specific, so much so that no Chiropractor has equaled it.”

And that’s how Chiropractic was born on September 18, 1895 – good thing D.D. was a great persuader! 

Happy 123rd Birthday! 


Band Aids Don't Heal

When you get a paper cut, the natural thing to do (after getting over the intense pain) is clean it up and put a Band Aid on it to protect it from getting irritated. After a few days when the bandage comes off, the cut is hardly noticeable. The question is, did the Band Aid do the healing?

Band Aids and Chiropractic Adjustments have something in common… neither one have the ability to heal you. Sure, both are helpful after an injury. But they can only provide an environment conducive for healing to take place. Band Aids approximate damaged skin to optimize the mending, adjustments approximate misaligned vertebrae to optimize nerve flow – but it’s the innate healing power of life inside you that scripts the repair!

The next time you come for an adjustment to instantly ease your headache, your sciatica or your sleeping problems, understand it’s not the adjustment that produces the result. Chiropractors don’t perform miracles. The doctor inside you is the one who does that work!
