125 Years of Chiropractic

Celebrate the 125th Anniversary of Chiropractic

It started with a movement of hands that changed spinal health and well-being forever. On Sept. 18, 1895, Daniel David (D.D.) Palmer adjusted Harvey Lillard in downtown Davenport, Iowa, and the chiropractic profession was born.

On September 18, 2020, chiropractors around the world took part in the Virtual 125th Founder’s Day Celebration.  Watch the video.
