Most of you know Chiropractic as a treatment for musculoskeletal aches and pain. However, the real history of Chiropractic was much more diverse in its scope of practice.

Pandemic Preparedness from Chiropractic Records of 1918 Influenza Epidemic: IOWA During the 1918 influenza epidemic, Davenport, Iowa, medical doctors treated 4,953 influenza cases with 274 deaths. At the same time, 150 chiropractors, students and faculty of Palmer School of Chiropractic treated 1,635 cases during the influenza epidemic with only one death.

The state of Iowa reports medical doctors treated 93,590 influenza patients with 6,116 deaths or one out of 15. The rest of the state, except for Davenport, reported 4,735 patients treated by chiropractor care with a loss of 6 which is 1 out of 789 during the influenza epidemic.

Pandemic Preparedness from Chiropractic Records of 1918 Influenza Epidemic: NEW YORK CITY. Reports from New York City during the influenza epidemic of 1918, show 950 out of 10,000 patients medically treated died. Whereas 25 patients out of 10,000 died under drugless methods

The reason for these amazing results stems from the fact that the Nervous System is the master controller of the body. We live our lives through our nervous system. The healthier it is, the healthier we will be.
