  Title The first teaching of chiropractic — A real riot
Journal Chiropr Hist. 2018 Winter;38(2):7-12
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Chiropractic has been taught for some one hundred and twenty-one years.  It may be of interest to some to read how this all began.  The story of the first chiropractic instruction may have had the makings to be told for generations as is the story of the first adjustment.  However, D.D. Palmer only gave us the name of his first student and a brief mention of an event near the student's hometown that almost took the founder's life and influenced his decision to teach chiropractic to others.  This paper will explore how a dangerous riot in Illinois may have influenced the founder's reflections on his decision to teach chiropractic.
