History of Chiropractic Care

Dating back to the late 19th century, chiropractic care was founded in Davenport, Iowa by Daniel David Palmer in 1895. As a man who was well-versed in the medical profession and knew much about anatomical and physiological developments, Palmer had a passion for providing practical health care and healing procedures without the use of vaccinations, surgery and other forms of modern medicine. Believing that manual manipulation of the spine could cure disease and provide relief to pain and discomfort, he took it upon himself to open the Palmer School of Chiropractic in 1897.

Over the years, Daniel David Palmer faced heavy opposition from those in the mainstream medical field, and people attacked him for practicing medicine without a license; however, Palmer and his son, Bartlett Joshua Palmer, defended chiropractic care and can today be credited with much of its success. Indeed, by the 1930s, chiropractic care was the leading alternative healing profession within the United States.

The Palmer School of Chiropractic was taken over by Palmer’s son in 1906, and Bartlett Joseph is responsible for having developed chiropractic care into the distinctive and concise health care system that it is today. While much has changed over time in the ways that chiropractic care has been viewed and administered, it is thanks to Daniel David Palmer and Bartlett Joshua Palmer that we have the chiropractic knowledge and techniques that we have today.
