Natural Awakenings Northwest Florida

Seminar on OTZ Chiropractic Breakthrough

Jan 03, 2015 12:43PM

In 2006, Dr. Francis X. Murphy made a phenomenal discovery which isolated the cause of frozen shoulder syndrome (FSS) as a neurological disorder. Since his discovery, Murphy and Team OTZ have been researching and developing a complete curriculum on the resolution of the true cause of FSS, called the One-to-Zero (OTZ) Tension Adjustment. Named after the binary code used by computers, this proven method involves a very unique analysis and manipulation of the articulation between the occiput and the first cervical vertebrae.

Preliminary clinical data suggests that the OTZ analysis and treatment has a much broader application for the chiropractic profession and the overall patient population. The OTZ Team has treated more than 1,000 cases of FSS using this method with dramatic results and trained hundreds of health care providers from around the world who are also experiencing great success using the OTZ Method.

Dr. Aaron Webb, at the Roach Chiropractic Wellness Center, has traveled to more than 25 countries in Asia, Europe, South America, the Middle East and Pacific Islands. He explains his focus: “I got into chiropractic care to help people. If we can help make a shoulder work the way it is suppose to work through the OTZ and the many tools we use in chiropractic adjustments, we can change neurological pathways, helping all patients obtain optimal wellness.”

“As chiropractors, we look for many tools to help our patients. There are not many other practitioners that are going to look for neurological interference on a clinician level,” says Webb. “Adjusting the occipital-atlanto subluxation pattern can have profound effects on brainstem nuclei, especially cranial nerve 11, which is involved in frozen shoulder syndrome, and cranial nerve 10, which can have profound effects on children with developmental delays.”

The relief from frozen shoulder syndrome is instantaneous, in usually one adjustment, which gives skeptics a new view on chiropractic care. Roach Family Wellness Integrative Medicine is seeing an increase in patient referrals of non-surgical candidates that prefer a less invasive solution and experience chiropractic care for perhaps the first time.

It should be of great interest to all local practitioners that Dr. Erik Roach and the Roach Center are hosting a seminar, OTZ Methods and the Polyvagal Effect, from February 28 to March 1, at 475 Maitland Avenue, in Altamonte Springs, Florida. Florida chiropractors will be able to participate in the training of this new procedure that continues to broaden chiropractic treatment toward changing lives.
