Palmer College of Chiropractic is a private college of chiropractic established in 1897, in Davenport, Iowa. Founded by Daniel David Palmer, the founder of chiropractic, the college has the distinction of being the first school of chiropractic in the world, and hence is often called ‘The Fountainhead’. Palmer College of Chiropractic-Davenport is the original Palmer College campus, and overlooks the Mississippi River in Davenport, Iowa. The college offers associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in chiropractic. Palmer’s research facilities are among the largest and most funded in the chiropractic educational community. The college also has outreach clinics in all its campuses, where treatment is provided for disadvantaged communities at little to no cost. Given its niche status, it has a small student community of about 1500. Student activities include sports, intramurals, seminars and informal ‘technique’ nights. The community on campus is geared towards healthy living, and most students have healthy lifestyle choices. Last year, the college ranked first in the Massage Ranking 2015 of massage-courses.com.
