119 Years of Pain Relief: Chiropractic Founders Day is September 18, 2016, Archdale, North Carolina

Living with chronic discomfort from a back or neck injury can be a great struggle, but you don’t have to let pain interfere with your life. The chiropractic profession emerged in 1895 in the early era of U.S. health care, offering innovative alternatives to standard treatments at the time. September 18, 2016 is Chiropractic Founders Day, marking the 119th birthday of the profession.

Stroud Chiropractic Clinic of Archdale, North Carolina, has continued the profession’s proud tradition of putting the patient first for 32 years. As the field of chiropractic medicine turns 119 years old, here are some aspects of its history and status today to reflect on:

  • pain reliefOrigins: The first chiropractic treatment happened in Davenport, IA, on September 18, 1895 and was performed by Dr. D.D. Palmer. The first patient, Harvey Lillard, was a janitor who had lost most of his hearing after something had popped in his neck 17 years prior. Dr. Palmer found and reset a bone that had come out of place, restoring Lillard’s hearing. Dr. B.J. Palmer, D.D.’s son, would go on to create the formal foundations of the chiropractic care we know today.

  • Principles: Chiropractic care is based on using non-intrusive, self-led care procedures that use the human body’s natural healing abilities to guide treatment. The staff at Stroud Chiropractic prides themselves on keeping their patients fully informed and active in their care as they seek and receive treatment.

  • Practice Today: Today, experienced chiropractic physicians can be found across the globe, working in approximately 100 countries. The United States has roughly 65,000 chiropractors, and 10 to 15% of the U.S. population reports having visited one in the past. Since its beginning, chiropractic medicine has continually been an efficient, affordable, patient-focused treatment option for pain relief of all types.
