One-hundred-fourteen years ago, on September 18th, 1895, Daniel David Palmer performed the first chiropractic adjustment… to make a deaf man hear. *Ahem.*
Mr. Palmer (not yet elevated to “Dr.” status), was an on-again/off-again beekeeper, school teacher, and grocer with what might have been an unhealthy interest in mysticism. Despite some serious skepticism that lingers to this very day, he did manage to create a field of medicine that touched (no pun intended) several of our family members, including yours truly.
