Murray joins Texoma Wellness Center

Gainesville — By GREG RUSSELL

The newest addition to the Gainesville branch of Texoma Wellness Center comes with a speciality in chiropractic care and considerably much more.

Dr. Troy Murray is a 1983 doctoral graduate from Texas Chiropractic College who ran practices both in Gainesville and Iowa Park for many years. But his range of medical service goes beyond that single skill.

And in keeping with the mission of the clinic, he promotes the concept that natural prevention is often better than a chemical cure.

Murray, a graduate of Gainesville High School, said he also attended Cooke County Junior College before branching into the chiropractic field and that his recent return to the area gave him several opportunities.

“It’s a very versatile clinic,” Murray said about the wellness center, which also has a branch in Whitesboro. “It gives a lot more broad of a spectrum and lots of other new and better ways to take care of people that I didn’t have access to.”

Texoma Wellness Center offers a strong emphasis on chiropractic care and wellness treatments that reside primarily in the “alternative” medical range. As led by center founder Dr. David Tuck, staff members prescribe no pills and give no shots and deal with body and immune system issues exclusively via natural means. Services include digital postural analysis, muscle testing, blood work, personal training, nutritional consultation, life coaching, massage, yoga, decompression, Infrared sauna and supplements.

The methodology makes a precise match for Murray, who said natural health care seems all the more viable in a climate where medications and medical insurance are hot topics.

“With everything that’s on TV, you can see that people have been ingrained into popping the pill or taking the shot to get better,” Murray said. “And we understand that it’s going to be like the paradigm shift that they talk about, where you get them to see things in a little bit different way.

“And just through our clinical experiences and the research that’s shown: There are some things we can do for patients beyond just neuromuscular skeletal pain and discomforts,” he added. “We can help a lot of other health issues, too.”

Tuck said prior to opening his wellness center in 1993, the Texoma area appeared devoid of a bonafide alternative health resource. He added that he and his staff attempt to treat multiple problems in a non-invasive way and invariably offer some solution for at least 90 percent of their patients.

“It starts when you’re young and don’t feel it,” he said. “It’s good if you can recognize and identify this stuff at an early age — which is what we try to promote out in the community: to get checked out by us early. We can identify these problems in their subtle stages and take steps to correct it and prevent you from getting the things that your parents got.”

And the pharmaceutical approach may have a place, he admitted. But that place shouldn’t always be in front.

“When you take a medication you’re not actually correcting a problem, you’re working on the symptoms — which is great,” Tuck said. “But if you want to be correcting something, you’ve got to get past the actual symptoms and find out what is actually causing the person’s problem. Symptoms are, I think, actually blessings to us since symptoms are the body’s way of telling us there’s a problem. So if you can understand how to look at the symptoms and ask the body the questions to uncover the actual cause of it, then you can get someone into a state of wellness and fix their issues.”
