October 19, 2022 (Falls Church, VA) This month’s cover story of Masters of Health magazine was written by long-time ICA member Eric Plasker, DC. Dr. Plasker explores the history of chiropractic, from D.D. Palmer’s first adjustment in 1895 to the essential role of chiropractors in worldwide communities today. In the intervening years, chiropractic and its practitioners have consistently faced societal and legal prejudice, but through the persistence of chiropractors and key leaders, chiropractic has been established as a formally recognized and respected health care choice.
Dr. Plasker comments on the current status of chiropractic: “Today chiropractors are taking the lead, being the first choice for healthcare because of their safe, holistic approach.”
Dr. Plasker’s article is a well-researched, well-written piece focusing on the story of chiropractic. He includes the key players and legislation that have led to chiropractic’s modern proliferation. He also looks to the future development of the profession, recognizing that everyone can benefit from the chiropractic approach to wellness.
“Living a healthy lifestyle, eating right, and exercising are not enough if your spine and nervous system are not healthy… Chiropractic is not just about treating symptoms, it’s about optimizing the function of the nervous system,” writes Dr. Plasker.
