An intro to the topic
What Dr. Murphy Hopes You’ll Take Away
Dr. Murphy’s passion is to educate chiropractic doctors about the scientific validation of the vertebral subluxation and its relationship to structure and function mediated through the nervous system.

“Ninety-three percent of initial chiropractic patients seek care for spinal back and neck pain complaints,” Dr. Murphy said. “Chiropractic is proven to be both safe and effective in the management of spine pain syndromes. At the WAVE, I’ll give you the latest updates in orthopedics and neurology as to why chiropractic is effective in the management of spine pain syndromes.”
