The History of Chiropractic

Chiropractic was founded in 1895 when its founder, Daniel David Palmer, from Iowa ‘adjusted’ the spine of a deaf janitor and claimed to restore his hearing. Spinal manipulation was not an unknown treatment in 1895, and Palmer never claimed to be the first to use manipulation for the cure of disease. He did claim, however, to be the first to use specific contacts as short-leverage points for making more specific spinal ‘adjustments’.  At this very early stage, the whole focus of chiropractic was manipulating the joints of the spine, as it was seen as the root of many problems.

Like all things Chiropractic has evolved over the years and is now an evidence-based medical profession requiring all practicing chiropractors to regularly attend training to stay up to date with the latest research and best treatment modalities. Where it was once entirely spinal focussed now Chiropractors treat all areas of the body. Back pain and neck pain would certainly be considered the most common reasons people seek a Chiropractor, however, they now treat all areas of the body from ankle, elbow, and shoulder injuries and so the list goes on.

Chiropractors and Osteopaths tend to be renowned for ‘clicking’ which would be manipulation, however, this is just one treatment tool and it isn’t always warranted or used.  In general, it is fair to say that the major difference in approach is that Chiropractors and Osteopaths tend to think of joints first then muscle, whereas Physiotherapists will think of muscle first then joints.

Sam, Jodie and the team from the Health Hub are amazing. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

Volker Ballueder

What a friendly place! Even with covid restrictions in place, you are made to feel welcome the moment you walk in the door. Tanya provides a thorough deep massage, having taken time to check on my needs and well-being. Would highly recommend and will be going back

Caroline Rogers

Thank you for fixing my back after 6 months of working from home on a wooden kitchen chair! I’ve gone from having never seen a Chiropractor before to now making it a regular appointment.

Adam Jones

I used to visit Tanya whilst she was working at the Heeler Centre, and was more than happy to continue using her excellent massage services when she moved to the Health Hub. The new venue is fantastic; welcoming, clean, great friendly staff and an excellent location. Of course, Tanya’s therapy skills are the main reason for going. So much so, my partner has now changed to visiting Tanya at the Health Hub and is also highly delighted.

Highly recommend – Sam and Tina at the Health Hub have helped me enormously recently with a back problem and I have been so pleased with the results. Always a friendly smile and professional service at their practice

Sally Tilley

I’ve been seeing Sam for treatment for a long time (getting on for 15 years). He’s managed to fix issues that allowed me to play rugby on weekends when I otherwise would have to miss out. While the issues he treats now aren’t normally as debilitating, I feel better and more able to train once I’ve seen him. Sam will give you a honest opinion on the best course of action for your injury and will do what he can to get you pain free as quickly as possible. The reception staff are great and it’s a friendly environment.

Lee Evans

I see Sam (chiropractor) regularly and he offers a bespoke, caring open minded service. Not only is he highly skilled and professional but he is friendly and knowledgeable without judgement or up selling. Highly recommend. Ive also had a fantastic sports therapy massage from Tina and hope to book in for another soon. Gemma
