A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Chiropractor Collection - • In about 400 B.C. Hippocrates said, "Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases." The "Father of Medicine," knew the spine is involved in health and wellness, and it follows that the manual manipulation of the spine can be a valuable technique. The words Chiropractic Care is derived from the Greek meaning "done by hand." • Modern chiropractic methods had a beginning in the late 1800s when Daniel Palmer, a self-educated teacher and healer, performed the first spinal manipulation on a janitor of the building in which Palmer had his office. The man was almost totally deaf but told Palmer that he lost his hearing many years ago as he was bending over to pick up something and heard a "pop" in his upper back. An examination revealed a lump that indicated a vertebra was out of place or misaligned. By applying pressure, Palmer was able to push the vertebra back into its proper position. The amazing part was when the man's hearing returned. • The rest is history, according to Palmer, as he found that spinal adjustments could sometimes correct misaligned vertebra, eliminate nerve interference and relieve pain. These misaligned vertebrae have been classified as chiropractic subluxations. He continued to use "hand treatments" for a variety of ailments including sciatica, migraine headaches, stomach complaints, epilepsy and even heart trouble. The Palmer School & Infirmary of Chiropractic began, in 1898, teaching his chiropractic techniques to others. Acceptance did not come easy. He was arrested, and spent time in jail, but there are now over 50,000 licensed chiropractors in the U.S. • Today the tools of radiology and computers refine applications, but basic philosophies are the same. The nervous system is involved in all bodily functions and a healthy spine is one of the major keys to wellness. Disorders of the bones and muscles can cause interference in this delicate communications system and increase the risk of disease and other health problems. Only by diagnosing and eliminating this interference can health be restored. Chiropractic - a method of treating disease based on the theory that disease is caused by interference with nerve function, and employing manipulation of the body joints, especially the spine, in seeking to restore normal nerve function. -- chiropractor (noun). Chiropractic is just one of many methods to treat ailments, of which some have been commemorated with postage stamps, both U.S. and foreign. Paul White pioneered in diagnosis and prevention of diseases of the heart and circulatory systems, and was one of the first to use the electro-cardiograph to detect disorders. His 1931 book Heart Disease, is a standard reference in the field. He was a staunch advocate of proper diet and daily exercise. William & Charles Mayo joined their father at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester, MN, and while building a cooperative group clinic made up of many specialties, including cardiology, founded the Mayo Clinic in 1905, and later the Graduate School of Medicine in 1915. CRAWFORD LONG received his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania, and performed the first surgery using ether in 1842, finally publishing his results in 1849. This was the beginning of ether anesthesia in the U.S. HARVEY CUSHING founded neurosurgery, contributed to understanding the pituitary, its disease symptoms being known as Cushing’s Syndrome. He contributed a great deal to training new surgeons, with text books illustrated with his own casework findings and his hand drawn illustrations. EPHRAIM McDOWELL, known as an accomplished abdominal surgeon performed the first successful ovariotomy in 1809. He performed many surgeries, one on President James Polk. MARY WALKER was far ahead of her times on women’s rights, becoming a physician in 1855 and serving as a nurse in the Civil War until commissioned and made an assistant surgeon. She became the first woman to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor, awarded for her medical work in the Civil War.
