THE HISTORY OF CHIROPRACTIC
The non-invasive, holistic, and whole body approach to health and wellness known as chiropractic care has been around for quite some time. However, as a formal means of medical healthcare, chiropractic care is over 100 years old. Throughout the years, the profession has advanced in techniques and technology. At Cornerstone Family Chiropractic, we are proud of the improvements of our craft and focus on ongoing education to ensure each practice member receives exceptional and effective treatment for their nervous system and whole body health.
A Brief History of Chiropractic
Chiropractic was born on September 18th, 1895. On this fateful day in Davenport, Iowa, Dr. D.D. Palmer was to be found practicing as usual, on the fourth floor of the Ryan Building, at the corner of 2nd and Brady streets. For nine years prior to his discovery of chiropractic, Dr. Palmer practiced as a magnetic healer, a hands-on therapy which was also practiced by many medical practitioners of the era.
At slower points during the day, he would often interact and converse with Mr. Harvey Lillard, the owner/operator of the janitorial company that maintained the building where Palmer kept his office. Harvey had told Dr. Palmer that he had suffered from back pain and that he had lost most of his hearing. Dr. Palmer asked Harvey how he had lost his hearing. Harvey replied that seventeen years prior, while bent over in a stooped position, he heard something “pop” in his spine and immediately suffered a loss of most of his hearing.
How Chiropractic Services Have Advanced
Since 1895, many reputable chiropractic schools have been established and they teach the latest advancements in the practice. While the core concepts remain the same, the technology and techniques have improved, more effectively allowing the human body to heal itself and reach its full potential of health.
Specialized equipment has made chiropractic care even more precise, and rather than touch and feel to assess the issue, we have scanning tools that show us the exact areas of spinal misalignments. Drs. Kodi & Mackenzie Schroeder and their team are well trained at using this advanced technology to improve your overall health.
