Dr. Dustine Murphy

Dr. Dustine Murphy is originally from Columbus, Ohio.

Dustine loves being a chiropractor because she loves seeing people get better and teaching patients about their natural healing ability.

Growing up, Dustine played many sports and always had an interest in exercise and nutrition. She was drawn to chiropractic because chiropractic maximizes the body’s ability to heal itself.

Today she continues to research health, nutrition and exercise topics as well as be physically active herself. She golfs and hikes in the warmer months and enjoys skiing and curling in the colder months. Above all, Dustine enjoys being active with her family and enjoying all that Northern Michigan has to offer.
