Palmer in September of 1895...</p> <p style=\"margin-bottom: 0in;\">&nbsp;</p> <p style=\"margin-bottom: 0in;\">&ldquo;Harvey Lillard, a janitor, in the Ryan Block, where I had my office, had been so deaf for 17 years that he could not hear the racket of a wagon on the street or the ticking of a watch. I made inquiry as to the cause of his deafness and was informed that when he was exerting himself in a cramped, stooping position, he felt something give way in his back and immediately became deaf.</p> <p style=\"margin-bottom: 0in;\">&nbsp;</p> <p style=\"margin-bottom: 0in;\">An examination showed a vertebra racked from its normal position. I reasoned that if that vertebra was replaced, the man&#39;s hearing should be restored. With this object in view, a half hour&#39;s talk persuaded Mr. Lillard to allow me to replace it. I racked it into position by using the spinous process as a lever and soon the man could hear as before.</p> <p style=\"margin-bottom: 0in;\">&nbsp;</p> <p style=\"margin-bottom: 0in;\">There was nothing &#39;accidental&#39; about this, as it was accomplished with an object in view, and the result expected was obtained. There was nothing &#39;crude&#39; about this adjustment; it was specific, so much so that no Chiropractor has equaled it.&rdquo;</p> <p style=\"margin-bottom: 0in;\">&nbsp;</p> <p style=\"margin-bottom: 0in;\">And that&#39;s how Chiropractic was born &ndash; good thing D.D. Was a great persuader!</p> <p style=\"margin-bottom: 0in;\">&nbsp;</p> <p style=\"margin-bottom: 0in;\">Reference: The Weekly Sticky &ldquo;Did You Hear&rdquo;</p>
