What is Chiropractic Care?



Addressing the Root of the Problem

The nervous system serves as the body's wiring. If this wiring is inhibited, the signal does not reach the intended body part, and illness may result. Such interferences can manifest anywhere along your spine. Pain in your arm or hand may actually be caused by a problem in your neck, where the nerves connecting to that hand originate. A qualified chiropractor can examine the spine for interferences and remove them through controlled techniques. Learn more about Dr. Murphy's techniques on the side bar.


Established Practice

According to The Association of Chiropractic Colleges, chiropractic care focuses on the relationship of structure, function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of your health. Qualified chiropractors are professional medical practitioners, delivering long-term care at a fraction of the cost of drug treatments and                                                                 surgery.

Our Techniques

Our medical professionals employ a wide range of proven techniques for each individual case. Below, you will find a brief explanation of the popular chiropractic techniques we use at our practice.


The Gonstead Technique

Named after a chiropractor in Gilbert AZ, this technique looks at the whole person and searches for the source of a patient's pain or discomfort by examining spinal misalignments, nerve dysfunction, foundational imbalance, and motion disturbances. Adjustments are then made to help restore natural spinal alignment and optimal movement.


Diversified Technique

The Diversified technique is to restore proper alignment, revitalize mobility, and reestablish normal joint articulation. When manually adjusting a patient, the chiropractor will bring a joint to a point of natural resistance and then apply a short thrust past that point of resistance.


Cox Technique

Cox Technique (aka flexion-distraction or F/D) is a non-surgical, doctor controlled, gentle, well-referenced chiropractic spinal adjusting manipulation technique.


Activator Method Techique

This method uses a spring-loaded, hand-held mechanical instrument called the Activator adjusting instrument. This instrument allows chiropractors to provide a quick, low-force impulse at specific points. 


The Thompson Technique

This technique was developed by Dr. J. Clay Thompson and has evolved into a system of analysis and means of adjusting the spinal cord. The combination produces precise adjustment. This technique makes use of specialized drop-piece mechanisms in the table to assist the adjustment. Individual cushions or "drop pieces" located along the table support each area of the spine until the thrust is given. Then, each drop-piece gently gives way, reducing the pressure needed to move a specific spinal segment.

Trigger Point
The primary purpose of Trigger Point Therapy is to reduce the pain that results from hypersensitive muscles. Trigger points are identified by gently pressing on the surface of the skin, sensing the texture of the underlying muscle.

A trigger point is like a knot the size of a pea, buried deep in the muscle tissue. It is made up of lactic acid, a normal byproduct of muscular activity, which sometimes gets trapped in the muscle from physical, chemical or emotional stress.

Additional therapies
Our office employs many physical therapy modalities, including ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation along with Cold Laser Therapy to complement

these techniques.
