Chiropractic is, first and foremost, the science of helping your body heal itself. We at Murphy Frazier Chiropractic in San Diego believe in treating the underlying cause of your discomfort, instead of just treating symptoms. This holistic approach is what can make chiropractic care so effective.

Your spinal cord is subjected to strains and stresses every day – even when you’re sleeping! And even though you have 24 moving vertebrae protect your spinal cord from severe damage, they can sometimes lose their normal motion or position and can irritate the nervous system, which can then affect the level of optimum health. This is called Vertebral Subluxation Complex or Subluxation Syndrome. It is vitally important to treat every subluxation because the spinal cord, brain and all the nerves control the function of every cell, tissue and organ in your body.


Gentle Chiropractic Treatment
We specialize in gentle, highly effective chiropractic treatment. We give a very thorough spinal examination and locate specific subluxations. We address each subluxation individually rather than simply “cracking” the entire spine.

Because we target specific subluxations, we are able to utilize a very gentle, carefully directed and controlled pressure to restore your vertebrae to a normal position in a shorter period of time. This results in more immediate pain relief, faster restoration of range of motion, and fewer treatments needed for the desired results.  

Our precise treatments are extremely effective in helping to eliminate neck pain, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome and many other occupational and recreational (sports) injuries.  

Our goal is to reduce or remove any interference to your inborn healing abilities and guide you back to the path to optimum health. To schedule an appointment at our convenient downtown San Diego office, contact us today.

Physical Therapy & Massage
Your muscular system has an amazing ability to adapt. When the spine is adjusted to its proper position, the muscles need “adjusting” as well. When your spine has been out of alignment, the muscles affected can over- or under-compensate to help you retain normal function.

The doctors at Murphy Frazier Chiropractic in San Diego believe that physical therapy and massage therapy are complementary treatments to chiropractic care. They help to re-train and relax the muscles, greatly speeding healing time and bringing about lasting wellness.

We utilize a variety of techniques to help bring your body back to its optimal state of health. After adjustments or laser treatment, we may recommend ultrasound treatments, time on the muscle stimulation machine, or heat therapy. If your doctor feels that additional complementary treatments are necessary, they may recommend a referral to an acupuncturist, medical doctor or another adjunct practitioner.

Qualified Medical Examinations
Chiropractors are believers in holistic health; meaning, every facet of your well-being is interconnected. A complete medical examination will be performed on your first visit to our chiropractic office.

Once review of your examination is completed, your doctor will recommend a specific care program, which will be custom-tailored to your needs and explained to you in detail. Your unique case may require specific spinal adjustments, use of laser therapy to reduce pain, physical therapy and/or massage therapy to assist in your healing process.
