Hipocrates published tests detailing the imporatance of chiropractic care during the time 460 to 357 BC.  One of his lines he wrote: "Get knowledge of the spine,  for  this is the requisite for many diseases."


In the US spinal manipulation started to get more popular in the 19th Century.  Throughout the 20th Century doctors of chiropractic gained legal recognition in all 50 states.
