Chiropractic was founded by Daniel David Palmer who worked with magnetic healing. Palmer put forward a hypothesis in which he claimed that manual manipulation of the spine could cure diseases. The first chiropractic patient was Harvey Lillard, his caretaker, who was partially deaf. After receiving treatment from Dr. Palmer, he recovered his hearing.
