In celebration of Chiropractic Awareness Month, here are some fun facts you might not have known about Chiropractic!
· Sources date the birth of Chiropractic back to 1895! The first modern Chiropractic adjustment was performed by Daniel David Palmer on a man named Harvey Lillard, who had sustained a back injury 17 years prior. As a result, he lost his hearing, which was regained after his work with Palmer.
· The term “chiropractic” derives from two Grecian words: “cheiro” which means hand, and “praktikos” which means practical. Loosely translated, it means “done by hand.”
· All 32 NFL teams have their own chiropractor to support wellness and treat musculoskeletal injuries.
· Some adjustments may cause a “popping” or “cracking” sound. This is not the sound of bones cracking, but actually the sound of air escaping the joints!
