Chiropractic leaps ahead with " science. Ever since the dramatic day in September, 1895, when Dr. Daniel D. Palmer first applied the physical principle of what we now know as modern Chiropractic, the healing science has exper- ienced tremendous growth. On that day, Dr. Palmer adjusted the misaligned spine of a black janitor, Harvey Lillard, who had been deaf for 17 years. Lillard had told Dr. Palmer that his hearing impairment began when he felt" something give way in his back" as he exerted himself in a cramped, stooped position. Dr. Palmer, already established as a practitioner who healed by the "laying on of hands" process, reasoned (correctly, as it proved) that ira spinal displacement had caused Lillard's deaf- ness, adjusting the spine to its correct position would restore the man's hearing. After three daily adjustments, Lillard leaped up from the examining table, exclaiming, "Doe! Doc! I can hear!" Although that was the birth of modern Chiropractic science, the principles are rooted in ancient times, with spinal manipula- tion described as early as 1700 B.C. Hippocrates, a Greek physican often labeled the "father of medicine" advised students to "look to the spine for the cause of disease." That was nearly 400 years before the birth of Christ. Down the years, that basic principle has remained unchanged. But the revolution begun by Dr. Palmer in Davenport, Iowa, some 86 years ago, has made Chiropractic the fastest growing health- care profession in the world -- and the second largest. The reason is, of course, that Chiropractic works. It helps people. While not every case is as dramatic as that of Harvey Lillard, there are millions of documental instances in which Chiropractic treatment has helped to restore patients to health -- a condition that we believe is everyone's natural birthright. Chiropractic also has kept pace with scientific technical developments which have made diagnosis much more accurate than was possible in Dr. Palmer's day. Spinal X-rays, for example, show the Doctor of Chiropractic (and the patient) whether and where vertebrae are misaligned in the spinal column, hampering the flow of vital nerve energy through the body. It has been determined that nerve interference may be further pinpointed by noticing differences in muscle strengths through applied kineseology. In addition to the latest in diagnostic equipment, the Issaquah Family Chiropractic Center professional staff utilizes the finest exercise programs, designed as an integral part of the treatment program. But with all the use of space-age diagnostic techniques, the Chiropractic principle is unchanged: it works to help the body heal itself, by the effective application of spinal adjustments to maintain the marvelous operation of the nervous system. And it works without drugs or surgery. NUMBNESS ! For a couple of years I had numbness in my arms and pinching in my back. I have missed work because of the backache that accom- ! i partied those pains. I made an appointment with Dr. Bober- Emery. I was afraid of having to come back for , appointments all the time when it was not necessary. However Dr. Bober-Emery assured me this would not be the case. I felt better about three weeks after I started regular treat- ments. Dr. Bober-Emery is always answering my questions, which are many. She always makes me feel like she has time for me, never appears to be rushed and takes great pains that I understand what she is doing for me. I feel better than I have for years. -- Bea Rice I BACK PAIN Several Doctors in Los Angeles failed to give me more than temporary relief, and was only partial relief. After 3 days of adjustments by Dr. Bober-Emery, I noticed a big improve- ment and realized it was the first time I had ever had a proper adjustment. -- Philip Crisler I I I I MIGRAINE HEADACHES For the past 5 years I have suffered with migraine headaches, lasting 3 to 5 days. In less than two hours after my first adjustment my headache was gone and hasn't rerumed! I even taught school that day (and took 23 children to the circus afterwards)! I am becoming a firm believer in Chiropractic! -- HollyJensen EDITOR'S NOTE The accompanying testimonials do not mean to infer that the chiropractor cures or guarantees a cure to your health problem. They are to prove that by removing nerve interference, the human body will heal iteself. I / l ______3/g__ SUFFERING NEEDLESSLY?
