celebrating 125 years of chiropractic
It started with a movement of hands that changed spinal health and well-being forever.
In 1895, D.D. Palmer adjusted Harvey Lillard in downtown Davenport, Iowa, and the chiropractic profession was born.
In 2020, chiropractors worldwide will mark the 125th anniversary of the founding of our profession. This milestone offers everyone in the profession the opportunity to join in celebrating and promoting what chiropractic offers: a world of unlimited health and potential.
Mark your calendar now for the 125th Founder's Day Celebration at Palmer College of Chiropractic, Sept. 17-19, 2020 in the Quad Cities!
