  Title Chiropractic Day: A historical review of a day worth celebrating
Journal J Chiropr Humanit. 2020 Dec;27():1-10
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Objective: The purpose of this paper is to review and discuss historical concepts about the celebration of Chiropractic Day.

Discussion: Daniel David Palmer attributed September 18, 1895 to be the day that he delivered the first chiropractic adjustment. As the chiropractic profession grew, the celebration of Chiropractic Day became more widespread throughout the United States and the world. This paper offers suggestions about how to celebrate Chiropractic Day. Activities include educating, learning, honoring, volunteering, and engaging.

Conclusion: The chiropractic profession celebrates its birth on September 18. Regardless of the many different names used over the past 125 years, including Chiropractic Founder's Day, Chiropractic Rally Day, Chiropractic Anniversary, and Chiropractic Discovery Day, the celebration of this special day provides an opportunity to reflect on how far the profession has come and how chiropractors continue to help and serve their patients.
