NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - You won't find skeptics or controversy in one Nashville family when it comes to the practice of chiropractic.
They've been working with patients since the late 1800s. Now in 2022, there's no plan of ending the legacy.
Art Lensgraf proudly preaches how it started with his grandfather, Arthur William Lensgraf. The latter graduated in 1922 and then passed it down to his son David Daniel. Then 40 years ago, it was passed to him. His son Benjamin is the next in line.
Four generations of boys and girls, the ladies are hard to find in photos, as his sister once explained.
"Arthur, back in my day, it was all about the boys," Lensgraf explained. "We girls didn't get much play."
The family's roots go back to Norway, but Lensgraf thinks for chiropractic. His roots go back to baseball, third grade, and Pete Peterman at the bat.
"He hit a high fly ball, and he threw his bat and hit me and knocked me out," Lensgraf said. "I wind up in the principal's office, and it gave me a concussion."
For the family of chiropractors, it was all hands on deck. First, they worked on him, and eventually, he felt better. He knows there are skeptics, but not him.
"Your mind is like a parachute. It works better when it's open," Lensgraf said.
