Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electrical Muscle Stimulation is a pain management technique that uses electricity to help alleviate pain. Treatment involves placing small electrodes, devices that conduct electricity, on the skin over the part of the body that's in pain; they are held in place with adhesive. The electrodes are then attached to a machine that releases small waves of electricity, sending tiny electrical impulses through the electrodes to the painful joint or area of the body. The electricity blocks the activity of the pain receptors, which send pain message.

OVD

Cervical traction devices work by stretching the spinal vertebrae and muscles to relieve pressure and pain. Force or tension is used to stretch or pull the head away from the neck. Creating space between the vertebrae relieves compression and allows the muscles to relax.

Cryotherapy/Thermotherapy

Cryotherapy and thermotherapy are useful adjuncts for the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and soft tissue injuries. Using ice or heat as a therapeutic intervention decreases pain in joint and muscle as well as soft tissues and they have opposite effects on tissue metabolism, blood flow, inflammation, edema and connective tissue extensibility.

    Lee Clouthier
  • "It has been 22 years now. I hurt my back at work. The pain was unbearable. I had never experienced anything like it before. A friend of mine asked his Chiropractor if he knew anyone in my area that I could see. He only gave one name. Dr. Blackman. Before I knew it, Dr. Blackman called me on the phone, on a Sunday night no less! He told me to come in the next day and he would examine me. But it was the following sentence that meant the most. “If I can’t help you, I will at least point you in the right direction” What more could I ask! So started a long journey. 5 days a week, then 4, then 3, then 2, then once a week. Now, I go once every 3 weeks for general maintenance. Thanks Dr. Blackman to You and your great staff for all your great care. The one thing about back pain is that recovery is slow. You have to be patient and trusting. Remember, taking pain pills are not a long term solution! I highly recommend Dr. Blackman and his staff!!"
