1885: DD studied with Paul Caster, a magnetic healer in Ottumwa, Iowa.

September 18, 1895: DD Palmer performed his first adjustment on the janitor, Harvey Lillard, who was delighted at the restoration of his hearing.

1902: BJ Palmer graduated from his dad's school and then developed, documented, and promoted the principals and philosophy of Chiropractic, thus creating the most revolutionary idea in the history of health care - Chiropractic Care!

DD Palmer and BJ Palmer were persecuted at first, as were many other innovators such as: Lister, the first advocate of antiseptic surgery; Roentgen, the inventor of x- rays; and Madame Curie, the discoverer of radium.

DD Palmer believed in the Toxic Theory of Health which says that drugs and excesses to the body will interfere with the purpose of the innate intelligence, to keep us healthy!

Both father and son Palmer believed that treating the causes of the loss of function to the nervous system with Chiropractic allows the innate intelligence to create health in the body ongoingly.

Today there are now more than 75,000 practicing doctors of Chiropractic worldwide.

In the early days of Chiropractic, those pioneer doctors were willing to make great sacrifices, including going to jail, for what they believed in - the patient's unalienable right to choose what kind of health care they deserve. And the right for them to have the option to choose Chiropractic.
