At Blackstone Spine & Health, we specialize in musculoskeletal disorders of the spine, temperomandibular joint (TMJ) and extremities (hand, foot, arm, leg, hip, shoulder). After a thorough history and examination, and any necessary imaging studies, the doctor, will evaluate and assess your condition and make his recommendation. He is trained in a variety of techniques to better serve you. We also utilize the latest technology to help heal your body naturally and gently.
While many people come to see us for various conditions, our focus is on finding the subluxation(s) (misalignments in your spine which can cause irritation and dysfunction of the spinal nerves and the tissues and organs they supply), correcting the subluxation(s), and allowing the body to heal itself, the way it was designed to.

The Impulse Adjuster is an adjusting tool that utilizes specific electromechanical force to help correct spinal misalignments. (see video on the Home page)
Some of our patients prefer traditional adjusting/manipulation of the joints. Our doctor is trained in several techniques that employ a very specific and gentle approach to this form of treatment.
COMPREHENSIVE SPINAL CARE
We take a comprehensive approach to your spinal care. We begin with a thorough Consultation and History, followed by an extensive chiropractic physical examination. If necessary, the area of concern is x-rayed in our office. We then use the results of this thorough process to determine if we can help you, and if so, what the treatments will consist of, how long it will take and what you can expect to pay for your care. If we are unable to help, we will help refer you to the most appropriate health care professional.
SPORTS MEDICINE AND REHABILITATION
While the cornerstone of our practice is the family, Dr. Blackstone keeps current with the latest treatments for common sports related musculoskeletal injuries. He cares for the weekend warriors to the professional athlete, and all of those who fall in the middle. Dr. Blackstone is passionate about restoring function to his patients, so that they can live life to it's fullest and be active participants!
Dr. Blackstone also emphasizes how specific chiropractic and rehabilitation protocols can "fine-tune" the professional or collegiate athlete.
