OTZ Health Education

Treating Developmental Delays

Our OTZ Method is a revolutionary, non-surgical, drug-free approach to treating children with developmental delays.

A chiropractic subluxation is a minor misalignment of two spinal segments which can cause nerve interference. This nerve interference can manifest itself with various symptoms. The Hatcher-Murphy subluxation refers to a specific misalignment of the joint between the skull (occiput) and first cervical vertebrae. When present this subluxation can cause interference with nerves that originate in the brainstem.

Our hypothesis with various childhood developmental delays is that the interference may be involving the vagus nerve, cranial nerve 10. Recent scientific research is showing that a healthy gut is important for good immunity and also behavior. In fact, many scientists are calling the gut “the second brain”. The vagus nerve has a lot of innervation to the gut. We feel that improving vagus nerve tone and gut health is how this particular treatment affects the human body and developmental disorders in children. Dr. Murphy and the OTZ team train chiropractors on how to use this non-surgical diagnosis and treatment of the Hatcher-Murphy subluxation to help children become tomorrow’s geniuses!

“We use a ‘Tension to Tone Adjustment’, which has led to some other fascinating discoveries over the past decade”, says Dr. Francis Murphy. In a recent radio interview with Spencer McGowen, Murphy said that this procedure has shown remarkable promise in the realm of the 10th cranial nerve. The nerve is also known as the Vagus nerve and it is responsible for emotions, attachment, communication and self-regulation. The procedure is said to have a profound effect on children with developmental challenges.
