Title D.D. Palmer's adjustive technique for the posterior apical prominence: "Hit the high places"
Journal Chiropr Hist. 2014 Summer;34(1):7-19
Peer Review No
Publication Type Article

In the early years of the chiropractic profession, D.D. Palmer's examination for the subluxation involved finding the prominent spinous process, and the treatment was to adjust it or to rack it with a forceful thrust of his hands. This article discusses Palmer's examination methods, his adjustive thrust technique, and early witnesses of these procedures. Also discussed are Palmer's evolving views on the subluxation's compression and enlarging effects on the intervertebral foramina, what has been referred to as "Palmer's forgotten theories." An analysis and discourse regarding the origins of Palmer's spinal adjustment is undertaken.
