CHIROPRACTIC SOUTH AFRICA
Whilst spinal manipulation really dates back to Hippocrates and beyond, the origin of modern Chiropractic is credited to Dr D.D. Palmer in 1895, a Canadian credited with giving the first Chiropractic manipulation.
Chiropractic South Africa dates back nearly 90 years. The first (unknown) chiropractor opened his doors in the 1920's. The Payne twins, Dr Ivan and Dr Alan, formed the first association of Chiropractors in the late 1930's. My own parents, Dr Dick Lewis and Dr Unity Allsopp-Lewis trained in America during WW2 and started practice in Pietermaritzburg in 1946.
Early days were characterised by squabbles between two factions, one which promoted making a diagnosis, and the other just adjusted the spine. The inimitable and forceful Dr Mario Milani, DC should correctly be accorded the credit for unifying the two factions into one cohesive profession.
It was this
cohesiveness that enabled the profession to become fully accredited in
South Africa in the face of a united Medical profession that called us
quacks and lay manipulators.
CHIROPRACTIC SOUTH AFRICA …
South Africa is privileged to have not one but two top class chiropractic institutions. Thanks to the vision of the Chiropractic Association of South Africa, the institutes were started despite great opposition some two decades ago. Without them there would today be no more than a handful of aging chiropractors in South Africa.
There are two very different approaches to chiropractic education ...

THE JOURNEY OF SCOTT HALDEMAN
South Africa is proud to be the birth place of one of the most influential Chiropractic personalities the world has ever seen. His grandmother and father were both chiropractors. Trained as a chiropractor, and still very congisant of his roots, Dr Haldeman has gone on to qualify as a medical doctor, a PhD and practising neurologist. Few men have shaped modern chiropractic more than Dr Scott Haldeman, putting it on the healthcare map with his strict emphasis by insisting that chiropractic through research actually prove with hard research what they already know: Chiropractic is safe, effective and cost-effective. We are the largest non-drug healing profession in the world.
South Africa is very proud of you Dr Haldeman. THE JOURNEY OF SCOTT HALDEMAN ...

Stones in my Clog
by Dr Bernard Preston DC
And now a quite different genre. Love a good read? Women and intimacy with a difference. Are you one of the target audience A FAMILY AFFAIR ...?
"Readers of Bernard Preston’s previous three books will not be disappointed with his latest work – despite the absence of a chiropractor!
The theme of The Bostonians, the first book in the trilogy, A Family Affair, revolves around some serious modern-day issues – but his easy-to-read style makes for compelling reading. The author’s ability to make his characters engaging as they become entangled in difficult relationships, whilst retaining a light-hearted theme, is commendable.
Another page-turner from a natural story-teller!"
