Guess what happened on Sept. 18?!

Happy 120th Birthday to Chiropractic Care!

September 18, 2015 marked 120 years since the founding of chiropractic care by the incredible Dr. Daniel David Palmer. Who could have guessed the profound impact that one man would have on the healthcare industry? A man named William Harvey Lillard, the very first chiropractic patient, did.

Harvey Lillard, among many others, was helped and healed by the power of chiropractic care. His story of restored hearing was the starting point of worldwide change. In a society reliant on medicine, natural healing began to take the stage.

120 years later, we continue to thank Dr. Palmer for his lasting contribution that continues to save the lives of so many.

The Spanish Influenza Epidemic

Chiropractic care went on to be the hero of the 1917 and 1918 flu pandemic that claimed the lives of over 100,000,000 people throughout the world, including 500,000 national deaths. While medical doctors worked vigorously to help the ill, many were quick to give up the fight when success felt far away. During this time, chiropractors stepped in – ultimately, saving a staggering number of people.

Proud of Our History

We sure do love our history. Years ago, 760 chiropractors were jailed for “practicing medicine without a license,” when in reality, they were doing something completely different. Now, chiropractors everywhere are helping patients heal and restoring their hope for happier, healthier lives.

If not for our predecessors, we would not be where we are today. Family First Chiropractic Wellness Center is forever grateful to the masterminds that came before us and altered life as it was known. We continue to commit ourselves to carrying on the legacy that Dr. Daniel David Palmer began in 1895.
