    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!!"
