Although the osteopathic profession was the first in the USA to organize a body of knowledge in the practice discount 100mg silagra overnight delivery, the great majority of osteopaths today do not practice manipulation 100 mg silagra for sale. At this point in time chiropractors provide the vast majority of these services in North America as well as in many other parts of the world, and are equated in the public perception with the practice of spinal manipulation. Currently, well in excess of 90% of spinal 1 manipulations in the USA are delivered by chiropractors. They also provide a growing percentage of these treatments in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and many parts of Europe. This chapter concerns itself with the current state of chiropractic, focusing on its place in the health-care system in the USA. Chiropractic traces its roots to Daniel David Palmer, a magnetic healer and sometime school-teacher in the Midwest. He was exposed to the ideas of various practitioners who employed manual therapies (bone-setters, lay practitioners and maverick medical physicians) and organized these skills into the profession of chiropractic. The first official chiropractic treatment, described by Palmer as a spinal adjustment, was performed in 1895 in Davenport, Iowa. This first treatment was described by Palmer as the reduction of a prominence in the upper thoracic spinal region of a janitor named Harvey Lillard. This man, who had been profoundly deaf, claimed return of hearing following treatment. Palmer eventually opened his first chiropractic school in Davenport, where it exists to this day. Flamboyant and excessive claims by early chiropractic leaders led to serious conflicts with mainstream medical practitioners that persisted throughout the first 80 years of chiropractic history. Several milestones have been important in understanding the relationship between the chiropractic profession and medicine.
