How We Can Help You Finally Heal
Your life doesn’t have to be defined by your chronic pain or ongoing disease anymore. With Dr. Derek Murphy, there is hope for the future for countless patients thanks to his years of experience, ability to combine traditional and cutting-edge treatments, and commitment to providing care that is 100% personalized for each patient’s body and goals. He won’t just treat your problem, but rather treat YOU as a complete entity, enabling your body to heal and your mind to recover so you can enjoy optimal health and wellness for years to come.
Effectively Treat Chronic Conditions
Nothing is more frustrating than trying to manage a chronic condition. Many patients dealing with Fibromyalgia, autoimmune disorders, and an alphabet soup of other problems find themselves bouncing from doctor to doctor trying different solutions without seeing results or feeling better. Dr. Derek Murphy has been especially successful treating people with chronic conditions because he takes a different approach than standard Western medicine. Instead of relying on medication or surgery, he takes a metabolic approach that combines supplements, medical acupuncture, and other techniques from osteopathic medicine to help a patient reduce their symptoms, function better, and restore lost balance to their body so they can live more comfortably.
Fix Root Causes, Not Just Symptoms
Many longstanding and often recommended treatments only address the surface element of a health problem, whether that be pain or exhaustion. Most of the time, this comes in the form of medication, which often brings with it unpleasant side effects. Dr. Derek Murphy goes beyond a patient’s symptoms and strives to discover what is causing them in the first place, and then he can apply therapy that directly treats it. By doing so, he can help a patient overcome their daily issues and start to fully recover.
Holistic & Natural Personalized Approach
Your body is 100% unique in the way it interacts with the world and deals with injury and sickness. It is completely different compared to everyone else, but Western medicine forgets this frequently, forcing patients with a particular problem to use the same treatment, which usually leads to mixed results and frustration. Not only will Dr. Murphy take the time to fully understand your body and what’s ailing it before recommending treatment, but that treatment will consider your whole body, not just the unwell portion. He’ll also recommend therapies that are designed to work with your natural ability to heal, stimulating and focusing it so you feel better from head to toe.
Medical Acupuncture & Manipulations
If you’re currently dealing with chronic pain and have been told that your only options are taking strong medication or undergoing invasive surgery, Dr. Murphy is eager to show you some alternative solutions that have delivered fantastic results for other patients in similar situations. Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) allows Dr. Murphy to utilize your body’s natural mechanics to relax strained muscles and bring back balance to an injured area, all by moving your limbs and joints in prescribed ways. He can also offer medical acupuncture, which combines this old form of medicine with modern medical knowledge to help patients feel like themselves again. Without pills or incisions, these approaches can make your pain virtually disappear.
2000+ Medical Marijuana Patients
Dr. Murphy is one of the most well-respected marijuana physicians in Florida, having successfully used medical cannabis to treat over 2,000 patients dealing with problems ranging from chronic pain to cancer to AIDS/HIV to Crohn’s disease and more. Several doctors refer patients to him who are looking for a more natural solution to their problem. The therapeutic benefits of marijuana come without the side effects of common prescription drugs, and Dr. Murphy can actually use it to help patients suffering from physical as well as mental health issues, including anxiety and PTSD.
