The profession of chiropractic in New Jersey has come a long way since the days when chiropractors were routinely thrown in jail for practicing without a license — a license impossible to obtain due to fanatical anti-chiropractic lobbying by organized medicine.
As a profession, chiropractic has a relatively short history — little more than 100 years. Its success in gaining recognition is rather remarkable when one considers the attacks on it from outside and the disagreements among various groups within it.
In A Profession Persecuted, Leonard F. Vernon, DC, provides a richly detailed illustrated historical perspective on the struggle of chiropractic, beginning with the origins of the profession and then focusing on the drama in his home state.
Illustrated with more than 90 historical photographs, some dating back a century, this book will educate, entertain, and even surprise chiropractors and anyone else interested in the profession of chiropractic, or the history of medicine..
