Black History Month is usually spent reminiscing on many of the inspiring stories from the past. I always find myself thinking about how Chiropractic got started because the first ever chiropractic patient was African American: Mr. Harvey Lillard.

Harvey Lillard was a janitor in the building where D.D. Palmer’s office was. Harvey Lillard was hard of hearing and D.D. Palmer thought that his deafness may be related to the popping in his back due to a misaligned vertebrae.

D.D. Palmer convinced Mr. Lillard to allow him to conduct an examination. During the examination, D.D Palmer asked Mr. Lillard if he could move the vertebrae back into place hoping that it would restore his hearing. After a half hour of discussion, Mr. Lillard agreed. That in itself speaks wonders, because even with all the data behind chiropractic there are still many skeptics today!

D.D. Palmer adjusted Mr. Lillard and shortly after, his hearing was restored to normal! That was how the chiropractic profession was started, all thanks to Mr. Lillard’s willingness to be the first patient.

 Cafe of Life Chiropractic Center were highly recommended to me by a few of my neighbors. I had some long time lower back and neck issues that were bothering me -- and it was just time to fix the problem. I signed up for a 2 month program -- and wow, the results are amazing. My neck is moving again, my lower back feels great, and other parts are that I didn’t know were stuck are moving again too! Cafe of Life is technology forward -- I love the scans of my back so that I can see the progress. They also have complimentary services like massage too. The team over at Cafe of Life is professional, fun and on top of their game. Scheduling is easy -- little to no waiting when I arrive for my adjustment. Love these guys!
