Chiropractic Founders’ Day is dedicated to chiropractic. This direction in medicine has proven itself in the treatment of problems with the spine and joints. Millions of people around the world have become healthier by attending chiropractic sessions. It is celebrated on September 18th.
Chiropractors are highly trained specialists who deal with problems with the spine. Before conducting manual therapy (the name of this direction in medicine), they study x-rays or talk with patients in order to collect the necessary information.
Treatment occurs by physical impact on a certain area of the spine. Sometimes heating or cooling methods are used. The main part of the problems is solved by pressing on the back with the palms or fist. Such therapy can improve a person’s condition, give a sense of mobility to their body. Especially often people who suffer from bad posture, complain of neck pain or are recovering from an injury turn to chiropractors.
It is believed chiropractors existed in the ancient world. According to historical sources, it is known that this was actively used by the Greek physician Hippocrates. Later, however, manual therapy ceased to be used. The chiropractic revival began in 1897. Seven years later, the first licensed chiropractor appeared in the United States.

- According to statistics for 2020, there are about 50 registered chiropractors in the United States.
