Chiropractic is a healing art with roots in ancient Greece. Its name means "Done by hand" in Greek. A famous Greek once said "Look well to the spine for the cause of dis-ease". In the modern world, our form of this art was discovered by Dr. D.D. Palmer on September 18, in 1895. He rendered the first chiropractic adjustment to Harvey Lillard, a janitor in his building in Davenport Iowa, hoping it would help Mr. Lillard to hear again after being deaf for 17 years. Amazingly, Lillard's hearing returned. That was 33 years before Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin. The Palmer family developed the science and art, and founded the Palmer School of Chiropractic, which we now refer to as "The Fountainhead".
