Chiropractors Salute First Chiropractic Patient

 EDINA, MN -- In recognition of "Black History Month," the Minnesota Chiropractic Association salutes the first chiropractic patient, Harvey Lillard.

In 1895 Mr. Lillard was an African American owner/operator of the janitorial company that maintained the building where Daniel David "D.D." Palmer, the founder of chiropractic, had his office. After receiving an adjustment from Palmer, Lillard's hearing was immediately restored after 17 years of deafness.

As D.D. Palmer's first patient, Lillard provided the inspiration that led to the development of the art of adjusting and the knowledge of the principals surrounding the science of chiropractic.

D.D. Palmer went on to establish what is now known as Palmer College of Chiropractic located in Davenport, Iowa.  Today there are chiropractic colleges and universities all over the world helping to provide increased access to quality non-pharmaceutical healthcare.

About Minnesota Chiropractic Association

Created in 1927, the Minnesota Chiropractic Association is the only professional organization in Minnesota that solely represents the chiropractic professional on a multi-level and integrated service basis.
