Happy Founder’s Day!

Most likely, this is the very first graduating class of Chiropractors in Davenport, Iowa.

This year marks 120 years since chiropractic was founded.

Traditionally, Founder’s Day is celebrated on Sept. 18, the date which is on or near the anniversary of the first chiropractic adjustment by D.D. Palmer in Davenport, Iowa, in 1895.

Founder’s Day is the perfect opportunity to share chiropractic with the world!

Post information about it on your website, Facebook page and profile, Twitter, Instagram and anywhere else.

About the Author:

I was introduced to Chiro.Org in early 1996, where my friend Joe Garolis helped me learn HTML, the "mark-up language" for websites. We have been fortunate that journals like JMPT have given us permission to reproduce some early important articles in Full-Text format. Maintaining the Org website has been, and remains, my favorite hobby.
