In 2006 Dr. Francis X. Murphy, chief practitioner of Whole Health Partners in Dallas, made a phenomenal discovery which isolated the cause of Frozen Shoulder Syndrome (FSS) 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 occipital-atlanto 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 occipital-atlanto adjustment 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. The OTZ Team of doctors, led by Dr. Murphy, has been researching and testing the results of using the occipital-atlanto adjustment for the treatment of Hatcher-Murphy Subluxations in children for more than 2 years. The team regularly identifies and reverses this misalignment in children with developmental delays such as Autism, Asperger’s, ADD and ADHD. The preliminary results of Dr. Murphy’s findings were recently published in the December 2012 edition of the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine.
The goal of all chiropractors is to correct nerve interference, safely and effectively to make sure the human body is operating at its most efficient state. Also known as vertebral subluxation, chiropractic is the only profession that deals directly with the removal of nerve interference. Acute conditions can be a result of trauma during childbirth, sports and accidents. Due to these situations vertebrae can become misaligned and muscle tissue and nerves may be affected. Chiropractic adjustment relieves pressure on nerves, allowing vertebrae to move naturally thereby permitting the body to function normally. The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) has published research and documented that spinal manipulative therapy is safe and successful in treating children of all ages.
Since 1996 Dr. Murphy has led the team at Whole Health Partners in providing a patient centered, holistic approach to chiropractic care and whole health wellness. In addition to his chiropractic education, Dr. Murphy has studied extensively in nutrition, meditation as well as advanced soft tissue techniques.
