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.

The team at the Health Hub are great! I’m having ongoing treatment with Kirk for an ankle injury I’ve now had surgery on. He was able to refer me to a great surgeon and supported me the whole way through that process. Since having surgery he has helped me with my rehab and created a tailored plan for my personal needs/goals. I’ve also had treatment with Tina and Sam who were equally brilliant. There’s a running theme with everyone at the Health Hub; they take time to listen to you about your injury/issue and help you to get back to whatever it is that you want to do! I couldn’t recommend the Health Hub enough!

I saw Kirk today regarding a very painful ankle. I found him to be very professional and has a very kind manner. I trust him to help me back to walking properly again soon.
