The Greek physician, Hippocrates, published documents detailing the importance of chiropractic care. In one of his writings, he declares, “Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases”.
In the United States, the practice of spinal manipulation started gaining momentum in the late nineteenth century. In 1895, Daniel David Palmer is credited with founding the Chiropractic profession in Davenport, Iowa. Palmer was well versed in the medical journals of his time and had knowledge of the developments that were occurring throughout the world regarding anatomy and physiology. In 1897, Daniel David Palmer went on to begin the Palmer School of Chiropractic, which has continued to be one of the most prominent chiropractic colleges in the nation.
