SPOTLIGHT ON THE QUAD CITIES
The Palmer Family and Chiropractic History Museum will spotlight a re-creation of D.D. Palmer's office. The original table that the first adjustment was performed on in 1895 is displayed. New for Museum Week 2017: You may have seen it jogging up Brady street during the Bix 7 Run, but did you know that the idea for the large wearable spine has been around since 1916? Learn the history of the “famous” Palmer Bix Spine! Also, visit the Centennial Exhibit where interesting things that happened during various eras will be highlighted.
