Colorado College of Chiropractic

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. This post relates to a chiropractic college that existed during a short period in the state of Colorado. It’s a reminder of the importance in choosing a chiropractic school that has a strong historical background, good accreditation status, and hopefully a solid financial structure, when making the choice of a career as doctor of chiropractic. The Colorado College of Chiropractic was part of Marycrest International University and it was located in Denver, Colorado. The school was closed by the end of its 2001 2002 school year, as a result of continued declines in student enrollment, as […]

It was September 18, 1895 (113 years ago today) that a magnetic healer by the name of Daniel David Palmer racked a vertebrae back into position on the neck of a janitor who had gone deaf some 17 years earlier. The man, who became known as the Father of Chiropractic, was practicing the art of magnetic healing in the Ryan building in Davenport Iowa when he encountered building janitor Harvey Lillard, who had been deaf for many years after suffering an injury. As the story goes, DD Palmer palpated a lump on the janitors neck, theorizing that the two were […]

Westside Manhattan Chiropractic College

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Take a walk today down West 72nd Street in New York City (around the cross streets of Amsterdam and Broadway) and you may pass an Urban Outfitters, General Nutrition Center (GNC), Citibank, Sleepy’s Mattress Center, and many other businesses. But in July of 1920 a stroll past 245 W. 72nd St. would’ve taken you by newly purchased property owned by the New York College of Chiropractic. I recently came across an old real estate report from June and July of 1920 that included some historical chiropractic information. Among sales listings for private dwellings was the selling […]

1996 ICA Review and Who Had a Website

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. This morning I was scanning through a 1996 copy of the ICA Review (International Review of Chiropractic) and I noticed there was almost no evidence of anyone claiming to have a website or e-mail address. The publication is nearly 12 years old, but surely there had to be at least somebody mentioning the Internet in some fashion. I was attending chiropractic college at the time (CCCLA) and was quite active on the Internet, but was anyone else? I went back through the 98 page publication page by page, checking contact information for vendors, e-mail addresses for […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I was browsing through some web pages on Planet Chiropractic today and I came across a half a dozen pages that had links to photos that were taken during chiropractic missions to Panama and Costa Rica from May and October of 2000. All the pages are grouped together and if you want to browse through the images you can view the main page here… Chiropractic mission to Panama February 2004 There are five pages of indexed image thumbnails which link to photos from a CREW chiropractic mission to Costa Rica in 2000, and pages of image […]

World’s oldest man born September 1895

The world’s oldest man appeared in news articles last week (Monday, June 18, 2007) after he received an official certificate from the Guinness World Records, verifying him as the world’s oldest male. According to report on Yahoo! News, Tomoji Tanabe is currently 111 years old, born on September 18th, 1895. Chiropractors will recognize that date as the day D.D. Palmer, the founder of chiropractic, gave the first chiropractic adjustment to a gentleman by the name of Harvey Lillard, in Davenport Iowa. On September 18, 2007 don’t forget to say happy birthday to Tomoji and to Chiropractic, as they’ll both be […]
