The practice of chiropractics began in the 1890’s by Daniel David Palmer. He developed the spinal adjustment and cured diseases by using spinal adjustment to correct abnormalities. This advancement led him to develop the philosophy of chiropractics. This philosophy set a standard for chiropractics set it aside from conventional medicine. The theory that mechanical disorders are affected by the nervous system was once controversial among the medical society. The once boycotted field of medicine has gained authenticity and generated evidence-based research to create clinical practice guidelines.
