The idea that the spine is in a indicator of health originates from the fact that it contains the spinal cord, the neurological pathway through the body. Since the time of Hippocrates, ancient Greeks referred to the nerve impulses as “vital forces”, which were believed to be crucial to health. When modern chiropractic came into being in the late 1890s, founder Daniel David Palmer postulated that “misaligned spinal segments interfere, by way of nerve impulses.” Because the central nervous system coordinates all biochemical functions (such as organ function, breathing, heartbeat, sight, movement, etc.), it stands to reason that damage to the nerves would adversely affect those functions.
