Chiropractic was founded in 1895 after hearing was restored in a patient following a spinal adjustment to the upper region of the spine.

My daughter recently read the fascinating story of how a poor child raised in the inner-city of Detroit became the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital at age 33.

This is Dr. Ben Carson's message for you… His mother was one of 24 children and was married at 13. He was an ethnic minority, and grew up in [...]
