Stop suffering with chronic pain

No one wants to be in pain, and when you are, all you can think about is relief. But pain, whether constant or sporadic, is your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong and needs attention. It’s not always obvious exactly what that something is. For instance, myofascial pain is caused by tension deep within a muscle that is referred by the nerves to other areas of the body, making it difficult for the patient to identify the origin of their own pain.

Eliminate the cause, eliminate the pain.

At the Blatman Pain Clinic, our goal is not only to relieve your pain, but also to unlock the source of your pain and work towards eliminating the cause. We do this through a customized combination of traditional medical treatments and holistic therapies, such as dietary changes, exercises and acupressure. Depending upon the patient and diagnosis, we may suggest proven alternative therapies or non-drug pain treatments in order to stimulate the mind and body’s natural healing power. We believe patient education and support are the keys to continued good health, and will teach you techniques to manage and prevent pain long after you have left our office.

This unique, holistic approach to diagnosing, treating and managing chronic pain can greatly improve your quality of life now and into the future. In the “Articles” section you can read Dr. Blatman’s thoughts and articles about various topics. These include Fibromyalgia, Myofascial Pain, Sports Injuries, Prolotherapy, Nutrition, and others. Other authors contributed to articles about EEG biofeedback, thought field therapy and body cleanse.


A holistic approach to chronic illness is especially important for treating people with complex chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Dr. Blatman has expertise in these areas, and has served as an advisor to local fibromyalgia support groups for many years. The Blatman Pain Clinic treats adults and children with fibromyalgia.

Enigmatic Pain

Do you have pain that no one has been able to figure out? Perhaps it is a pain that is difficult to describe, or it may be numbness, burning, or even a sharp pain. This enigmatic pain is often myofascial pain. Don’t give up hope. Get evaluated by a myofascial pain specialist. Even after many years, this pain can often be successfully treated and reduced.


Do you have headaches that don’t respond well to treatment? Most people with headaches, including migraine and tension headaches, have an underlying myofascial pain condition. Don’t give up hope. Read the article about headache. Perhaps this applies to you.
