HISTORY OF CHIROPRACTIC
Chiropractic was born in USA in 1895. David Daniel Palmer realized the first vertebral specific adjustment to a Butler local (Harvey Lillard) who lost the hearing after an accident.
He checked his spine, and saw that a vertebra was misaligned and he corrected it and his hearing improved… His son, Bartlett Joshua Palmer helped to expand the chiropractics principles during the 20th century. His father funded the Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1897, that which was the first chiropractic. Now, 50 chiropractic school exist all around the world. (US, UK, Australia, France, Danmark, Brazil, Spain, etc…)
Generally, the lack of movement of a vertebral bone is due to a vertebral subluxation. Chiropractor will analyze, detect and correct the vertebral subluxations in order to restore mobility and nerve function.
The vertebral subluxation is the disfunction of the movement of one vertebra. It s going to generate pathologic changes in the nerves, muscles, ligaments, vascular and connective tissues.
The vertebral subluxation is a lesion or dysfunction in a joint or motion segment in which alignment, movement integrity and/or physiological function are altered, although contact between joint surfaces remains intact.
