Dr. Francis Murphy
Dr. Francis Murphy began his path to chiropractic in Atlanta Georgia after he developed a sharp pain in his ribs. Over a period of 9 months Dr. Murphy spent $10,000 pursuing the help of countless medical doctors with little to no explanation or benefit. At one point Dr. Murphy was referred to a psychiatrist for mental evaluation, as there seemed to be no explanation for his pain, meaning it must be “all in his head.” Having exhausted what seemed to be all reasonable resources, Dr. Murphy decided this was the way he was intended to live his life with pain upon every breath.
It happens that one fateful day a student from nearby Life Chiropractic College walked into his life. The student noticed that Dr. Murphy looked tired and asked Dr. Murphy what was going on and he shared the story of his rib pain. It was then that this student shared a story about the benefits of chiropractic and how the body worked and why Dr. Murphy had such pain. He then invited Dr. Murphy to come see him at the student clinic where in about 1 hour and for $6.50 he changed Dr. Murphy’s life. Realizing that he had no idea how his own body worked and that he had to take the advice of a doctor simply “because he said so,” Dr. Murphy moved to Dallas, Texas where he attended Parker College of Chiropractic and was a member of the 1995 graduating class.
Dr. Murphy is the founder of Whole Health Partners. In addition to his chiropractic education, he has studied extensively in nutrition as well as meditation and soft tissue techniques. In 2006 Dr. Murphy made a phenomenal discovery which changed the lives of Frozen Shoulder Patients by isolating the cause of Frozen Shoulder Syndrome as a neurological disorder. Since his discovery, Dr. Murphy has been researching and developing a complete curriculum on the resolution of the true cause of FSS, dubbed the OTZ Tension Adjustment. He currently travels around the world teaching other chiropractic doctors the OTZ Tension Adjustment for the treatment of FSS, and has personally resolved over 1000 cases of FSS using the technique.
Dr. Murphy’s FSS discovery and implementation of the OTZ Method was immediately shown to have a dramatic effect on a wide variety of other neurological conditions, which were occurring simultaneously in some frozen shoulder patients. It wasn’t long before the connection between the neurological cause of FSS, known as the Hatcher-Murphy Subluxation, and neurological based developmental difficulties in children was revealed.
Dr. Murphy has had the privilege of presenting his information regarding Hatcher-Murphy Subluxation and the OTZ Tension Adjustment to chiropractors from around the world, including Dr. Mathew Gutierrez, who is now the owner and lead chiropractor at Whole Health Partners.
