History of Chiropractic

The non-invasive, holistic, and whole body approach to health and wellness that is known as chiropractic care has been around for a while now. However, formally chiropractic care is over 100 years old. The profession has advanced in techniques and technology over the years. 

Here at ADIO Chiropractic, we are proud of the enhancements of our expertise and focus on continuing education to guarantee each practice member receives exceptional and effective care for their nervous system and the health of the entire body. 

D.D. Palmer

Daniel David Palmer

The Founder of Chiropractic

Palmer believed that the human body had ample supply of natural healing power transferred through the nervous system. He proposed that if any one organ was affected by an illness, it must have not been receiving its normal “nerve supply” which he called a “spinal misalignment,” or subluxation. He saw chiropractic as a form of realigning to reestablish the supply.

D.D. Palmers office was located in Davenport, Iowa. In 1896, he encountered the building’s janitor, Harvey Lillard, whom Palmer determined had a substantial lump in his back. Lillard’s hearing was severely impaired and Palmer proposed that the lump and his hearing deficits were connected. Palmer treated Lillard and successfully restored his hearing. 

B.J. Palmer

Bartlett Joshua Palmer

The Developer of Chiropractic


B.J. Palmer was the son of D.D. Palmer.He fought for the creation of a separate licensing and regulatory boards of chiropractic allowing for it to be acknowledged not as a method of medical practice, but as a separate entity. B.J. Palmer continued to develop the science, art, and philosophy of the profession. He supported the scientific advancement of chiropractic as the primary path to its acceptance. B.J. Palmer furthered the profession by using science to validate and explain chiropractic.Through his leadership chiropractic became the first health care profession to regularly use x-rays, which enhanced the science and accuracy of chiropractic. 

“Medicine is the study of disease and what causes man to die. Chiropractic is the study of health and what causes man to live.” 

Chiropractic Services Have Advanced

Since 1895, there have been many respectable chiropractic schools established. These schools teach the latest advancements in chiropractic. While the core concepts have remained the same, the technology and techniques used have improved, and the body can heal itself and reach its full potential of health more effectively. Specialized equipment has made chiropractic care even more accurate, and instead of touch and feel to identify the issue, we use scanning tools that show us the exactly where the spinal misalignments are. Dr. Zac and his staff are trained in using this advanced technology to improve your overall health.
