What Are The Health Benefits of The Chiropractic Care

Feb 8 2017 - 6:33pm

Chiropractic care dates back to the late 1800’s when Daniel David Palmer, a teacher and magnetic healer gave the first spinal adjustment to Harvey Lillard who had experienced a “pop” in his back 17 years earlier and had since been almost completely deaf. After the adjustment Lillard’s hearing improved. Palmer deduced a connection between adjustment and Lillard regaining his hearing.
