Meet Dr. Matthew Murrin

Changing Paths

Dr. Matthew MurrinWith his mind made up about his future, Dr. Murrin decided to go to medical school before encountering chiropractic and transforming his life. An active athlete, he played basketball and was injured. With a ruptured disc and a herniated disc, the surgeons said he’d need surgery and a wheelchair and wouldn’t run or play basketball again. Fortunately, a teammate who was a chiropractic patient told Dr. Murrin that there might be another way.

Understanding a True Calling

Though Dr. Murrin felt unsure, he went to the chiropractor as a last resort. He placed his trust in this natural health practitioner and was rewarded with incredible results. “I could run again and return to class after being bedridden for three months. Then, I saw improvement with my chronic ear infections, migraines and strep throat infections.” After years of accepting that the stressful times around midterms and finals would mean being sick for weeks, he finally understood what it meant to be well.

Dr. Murrin spoke in-depth with the chiropractor about the nervous system’s control over every part of the body. “It made sense that if pressure is on a nerve, the area that the nerve goes to won’t function properly. The lightbulb went off. I was so excited I flew from Canada to Iowa for a seminar held where chiropractic was founded. After that, I was hooked! I left my medical school path and was accepted and enrolled into the world’s greatest and most well-known chiropractic school, Palmer College of Chiropractic, where chiropractic was founded and developed.”

Excelling With a Chiropractic Education

Already prepared with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from the University of New Brunswick, Dr. Murrin attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. He also holds a master’s degree in Exercise Science and served as a professor in Exercise Physiology during his master’s program. There, he had the honor of being nominated for the Dr. Allan P. Stuart Award for Excellence in Teaching.

During his years at Palmer, Dr. Murrin received numerous accolades. He was named a Presidential Scholar for his high grade point average, was president of the international chiropractic honor society Pi Tau Delta, was an honor student every term, on the President’s Honor List and served on the Sports Council. He also had the privilege of going on a mission trip to Cochabamba, Bolivia, bringing chiropractic care to the underserved.
