Chiropractic has grown to become the second largest healing group in America (after medical doctors) and the most widespread drugless therapy in the world. This is the first book to place this unorthodox medical movement in its proper historical setting, examining its relation to other sects, to religious beliefs, and to orthodox medicine.

"Moore's erudite treatise is essential to understanding the survival of chiropractic as a viable alternative health profession. Chiropractic in America provides exhaustive documentation and should be studied carefully by anyone interested in the actual dynamics of this profession's growth and increasing public acceptance."--William S. Rehm, D.C., former President and Executive Director, Association for the History of Chiropractic.
