Doctor of Chiropractic

Bernadette A. Murphy is the Founding Professor of Kinesiology at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT).

Her experiences with injuries and rehabilitation lead her to complete her four year Doctor of Chiropractic training at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC).

She was a faculty member in Sport and Exercise Science for 10 years there where she established a Masters degree in Exercise Rehabilitation.

In her research program at UOIT she investigates how altered sensory input from the spine due to injury and fatigue affects the way the brain processes other sensory inputs and how this affects the way the brain controls output to muscles. She wants to understand what makes pain transition from acute to chronic and how back and neck treatment can improve movement and coordination. She loves working with patients and is excited to be joining Fit4Sport.
