Daniel David Palmer

A portrait of Daniel David Palmer (1845–1913).

I would like to introduce you to Daniel David Palmer (aka D.D. Palmer), the founder of chiropractic.

Daniel David Palmer or D.D. Palmer was born on March 7, 1845, in Pickering, Canada West (now is Ontario)  and died on October 20, 1913.

In 1865 Palmer moved to the United States, and around 1880 took up magnetic healing in Davenport, Iowa. After returning to Davenport, in 1895 Palmer met Harvey Lillard, a janitor whose hearing was impaired. Palmer claimed the man’s hearing was restored after manipulating his spine.

Palmer developed the theory that mis-alignment of the bones in the body was the basic underlying cause of all “dis-ease” and the majority of these mis-alignments were in the spinal column. In 1897 he opened the Palmer School of Chiropractic in Davenport and started teaching his techniques. Lawsuits followed, and after brief incarceration, Palmer sold the school to his son, B. J. Palmer. B. J. greatly expanded the school and the general knowledge of chiropractic. Palmer moved west, opening several new schools in Oklahoma, California, and Oregon. His relationship with his son was strained after this point.

Palmer died in Los Angeles in 1913 of typhoid fever.

To learn more about D.D. Palmer, I suggest a .pdf outlining D.D. Palmer’s Lifeline at National Institute of Chiropractic Research.
