Dan Murphy, DC

Topic: "The Opiate Crisis and the Chiropractic Alternative"

Dr. Daniel Murphy is one of the most knowledgeable and respected speakers and educators in the chiropractic profession. Dr. Murphy, a 1978 graduate of Western States Chiropractic College, began clinical practice in 1978 and, not long after, became a part-time faculty member at Life Chiropractic College West – a position that he still maintains to this day. Dr. Murphy’s post at Life has, perhaps, done more to shape his outstanding career than any other. “In reality, I do not know very much about anything, but I know a little about many different topics.” Dr. Murphy goes on to say, “Consequently, my value to our profession is that of an idea integrator, a dot connector. I want to improve my understanding of how chiropractic works and what we can do to make chiropractic more effective. I want to change the health attitude of the world. I will not retire.”
