D.D. Palmer’s Contribution: TIC VLOG EPISODE 1
This is the first episode of my new video blog. On these short videos I will be talking about my latest research into the history and philosophy of chiropractic. I will also answer questions. TIC VLOG Episode one includes a question from Pat MC about D.D. Palmer’s original contribution and how it was different from osteopathy.
