Top Chiropractors in the United States

A few weeks ago I began compiling a list of the top 100 chiropractors in the world. My intention when creating the list was to find out which doctors of chiropractic had been the most influential to doctors in practice today. In other words, who were (or are) the biggest movers and shakers in the chiropractic profession. The names that came back were mostly what I expected. Chiropractic leaders such as BJ Palmer, DD Palmer, Reggie Gold, Sid Williams, James Sigafoose, Sylvia Ashworth, Carl Cleveland, Ian Grassam, Tom Gelardi, Joe Flesia and Guy Riekeman have been suggested several times and the list continues to grow. It appears now though that we will be creating more than one list as a result of an experience I had this past weekend.
