“You Never Know How Far Reaching….”

BJ Palmer 1I never EVER imagined that BECAUSE of this podcast, I’d meet “BJ Palmer.”  …Then again, I bet Todd Waters thought the same.

(By the way, this is Dr. Lamar stealing Todd’s corner of the website again… only because it’s the best place to share this).

Several some-odd-years-ago, when antique collector Todd Waters set his hands on the rare, 1931, recordings of the Developer broadcasting on the radio,

there was no way he could have possibly known that with a wig, a cigar, some period clothing, and the discovery of a hidden alter-ego: he was to become, in a way, the man whose voice was etched on the acetate records now in his possession. For staring back at him in the mirror was the very likeness of BJ.

Chiro-Picker’s Fresh Pick — The Building Blocks of Chiropractic

Updated Picker Imageby  Todd Waters, aka “The Chiro-Picker” – SpinalColumnRadio featured blogger


A brick sits on my desk.  But this is not just any brick….

Ryan Block BuildingIn 1888 DD Palmer moved his magnetic healing practice to Davenport, Iowa, renting rooms in the Ryan Block Building on the corner of Second and Brady streets.  Palmer not only used these rooms as his office for his patients, but as his residence for his family.  His vitalistic, hands-only, magnetic healing methods were so successful and sought after, that within four years he required the square footage of the building’s entire fourth floor. Room and board was made available for his most severe cases.

In SCR Episode 158, the ChiroPicker grabbed a mic and took over my show.  I figure if he can get away with it, so can I.  So, I’m hijacking his Fresh Picks article this month to showcase a bit of little known Northwest chiropractic history. — Dr. Lamar

A chiropractic college in Seattle?  Bizarre.  That’s what I first thought when I heard about it.

Chiro-Picker’s Fresh Pick — The Story of Finding Sweet Home

Updated Picker Imageby  Todd Waters, aka “The Chiro-Picker” – SpinalColumnRadio featured blogger


Sweet Home Monument: Site of “Sweet Home”  - 1870’s Apiary, Nursery And Former Residence Of Daniel David Palmer Founder of ChiropracticOn September 18, 1997, one hundred and two years after D.D. Palmer delivered the profession’s first adjustment, adventuring chiropractic historians, Dr. Myron Brown and Dr. Gene Zdrazil, set a modest stone marker on a piece of land once owned by the founder — a piece of land that Palmer affectionately referred to as “Sweet Home.”  

For Brown and Zdrazil, memorializing this historic location of chiropractic was easy. Finding it was hard. Continue reading



Chiro-Picker’s Fresh Pick — PALMERGRAM Proves Conflicts Clarify

Updated Picker Imageby  Todd Waters, aka “The Chiro-Picker” – SpinalColumnRadio featured blogger


As a non-DC, but avid DC-historian, I can speak with some authority when I say chiropractors have never had an easy time selling what they do to the public.  Although chiropractic is beneficial to the health of man, it is difficult to quickly explain to the layperson what it is — and on the flip side, what it isn’t.  Chiropractic concepts are further complicated when potential patients must “unlearn” what hearsay has taught them.

From its beginning, the chiropractic profession has been smeared by other practitioners of health care, driven by competition and misunderstanding.

However, there was a period in chiropractic’s early life where the profession was under attack by clowns…  Literally.

Chiro-Picker’s Fresh Pick — Remembering Reggie Collection: Finding “The Golden Facts of Life — and Health”

Updated Picker Imageby  Todd Waters, aka “The Chiro-Picker” – SpinalColumnRadio featured blogger


reggie-gold-chiropractor(2)Reggie Gold one of Chiropractic’s last living legends and master of communication passed away March 24 2012. I had little knowledge of Reggie until I heard his interviews here on Spinalcolumnradio.  

As a Picker of collectibles, one of my specialties is record LP’s.  The more unusual the subject matter on the record, the more interesting it becomes to me.  I am especially intrigued with spoken word records when an author reads his work, or a pilot instructs how to fly a plane, …or even when — as you’ll soon find out — a master at communicating the chiropractic message demonstrates his art in front of a live audience.   Continue reading
