In 2006 North Dallas chiropractor, Dr. Francis X. Murphy made a groundbreaking 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 occipital-atlanto diversified adjusting technique or The OTZ Method. He currently travels around the world teaching other chiropractors the OTZ Method for the treatment of FSS, and has personally resolved over 1000 cases of FSS using the method in his Dallas clinic alone.
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.
FSS, also known as adhesive capsulitis is a common, yet poorly understood, condition causing pain and loss of range of motion in the shoulder. It can occur in isolation or concurrently with other shoulder conditions or autoimmune conditions. It is often self-limited, but can persist for years and may never fully resolve.
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 FSS patients. It wasn't long before the connection between the neurological cause of FSS, known as the Hatcher-Murphy Subluxation (HMS), 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 OTZ Method for the treatment of HMS in children for more than 2 years. The team regularly identifies and reverses this disorder 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.
Using the WHP state-of-the-art treatment facility and ongoing community education programs, Dr. Murphy and the Whole Health Partners team are poised to help the millions of people suffering from Frozen Shoulder Syndrome in the U.S. around the world.
