The History of Chiropractic
Chiropractic is the natural therapy to have aimed at the natural healing of the body, discovered in 1895 by D. D. Palmer (1845-1913) in Davenport, IA, U.S.A.
The power to heal is already in the human body. This process is radiated to the whole body by way of the spinal cord (nerves) that comes out from the brain and through the spine.
D. D. Palmer established the theory that interference in the nerve transmission from the brain, usually from some distortion of the spine (see “subluxation” Chiropractic Terminology), causes an obstruction in the natural power to heal.
By adjusting (see “adjustment” Chiropractic Terminology) the vertebra or vertebrae that cause the interference allows the body to naturally recover its original state.
During D. D. Palmer’s era, the full spine was subject to adjustments, but he had been also talking about the importance of the neck.
However, the chiropractic practice of D. D. Palmer ended after a short span of only 18 years.
Afterwards, D.D. Palmer’s son, B. J. Palmer (1882-1961) succeeds to his father.
B. J. Palmer ascertains the fact that the most important part that controls health is the upper cervical region.
This was the start of the Upper Cervical Chiropractic practice.
It was the year 1930.
This discovery is well known as a H.I.O. theory in chiropractic profession. H.I.O. means Hole In One. After that, B. J. Palmer devoted his whole life to the research of the Upper Cervical region.
The Upper Cervical Chiropractic method is also called “Specific Chiropractic” or ”Specific Upper Cervical Chiropractic” in the chiropractic profession.
The full spine is the target of adjustments in the chiropractic profession, but in Specific Chiropractic, the adjustment is limited only to the upper cervical region.
The human race will always work hard to ease symptoms and provide treatment for diseases as a part. However, as science progresses greatly in the future, importance of the upper cervical region will be recognized more than ever where is the place only can lead the whole part to the health as a whole.
