Meet Dr. Michael Murphy

Experiencing the Power of Chiropractic

Dr. Murphy’s initial experience with chiropractic was as a teenager suffering from a severe back injury. He was not only impressed with the results and relief of his pain but the fact that the doctor addressed the problem instead of the symptom-and did so without drugs and surgery. He also liked that the chiropractor explained why he was getting the pain and what he could do to remain pain-free in the future. Several years later Dr. Murphy returned to college to pursue his doctorate in chiropractic.

Getting Patients Results Using Multiple Approaches

Interested in preventing people from experiencing health problems and changing lives, Dr. Murphy decided to enroll at New York Chiropractic College. There, he gained training similar to that of a medical doctor, with additional focus on neuroanatomy, biomechanics and chiropractic sciences. He graduated with a Doctor of Chiropractic in 2001. He has certifications in the following:

To further his education, Dr. Murphy has additional studies in neurology, sports medicine, Myofascial Release Therapy, whiplash and more. With his advanced studies and years of experience, he has developed several proprietary evaluation and treatment methods which lead to quicker, safer and more effective results for the patient.

Introducing Our Latest Therapy: PEMF

Dr. Murphy’s most recent addition to his suite of therapies at Montville Chiropractic is Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF). Though the technology has been around since the 1930s in Eastern Europe and Asia, it is relatively new to the United States. PEMF has been proven effective in the treatment of many conditions, and thousands of studies have confirmed it. It uses the earth’s natural magnetic field to optimize the body’s ability to heal.

Staying Active in Montville

When he isn’t with patients or furthering his studies, Dr. Murphy enjoys being outdoors. He likes camping in or traveling to remote places-often without electricity or other forms of civilization to get away from it all. He also enjoys spending time at his property in New Hampshire, and target practicing.

Getting together with his family, which includes grandchildren, is one of his favorite things to do.
