The developer of chiropractic, major chiropractic researcher in the 1950s BJ Palmer
Cord Compression Theory, Meric Chart of Nerve Tracing, HIO Technique (only C1 and C2 were capable of subluxating and producing significant problems), Neurocalometer (instrument used to detect heat imbalances) BJ Palmer
said Vitalism (suggests that the body requires something greater than physical and chemical processes to function) BJ Palmer
Subluxations are from abnormal biomechanics caused by muscle imbalance in a weight bearing spine. Pelvic distortion model (basic distortion of the spine starts in the pelvis) Carver
(F/D)- developed protocol for treatment of lumbar disc protrusion. spondylolisthesis, subluxation, and scoliotic curves Cox/Magnus
