We are saddened to announce the passing of Dr. Jake Pivaroff, D.C., (Dr. Jake) the founder and creator of The Deep Muscle Stimulator.

Dr. Jake’s passing is a deep loss to the chiropractic and sports training communities. Dr. Jake was a fearless man with a drive to help people. He served our country in the Vietnam war as a combat medic. It was after his service, and at his weakest point, he met his lifelong partner, Patti in Hawaii. They raised their two boys, Yasha and Nick who share the traits of their father… A quiet, yet confident demeanor with the ability to inspire others with direct and honest opinions.

After serving our country Dr. Jake continued his passion for helping people by becoming a chiropractic doctor where he focused on healing the people and returning his patients to comfortable and active lives. Dr. Jake treated everyone, athletes, other doctors, and everyday people. And he treated them all the same, with respect, and compassion and always shared his wry sense of humor, which made him so endearing. His devotion to helping people heal lead him to spend years in developing, testing and providing his patented invention, The Deep Muscle Stimulator (DMS).

Dr. Jake is proud of the success of the DMS and how it has helped so many people heal. Again, his efforts in the development of the DMS have helped heal professional athletes, weekend warriors, and even racehorses. His knowledge of the body and what helps support the healing process drove him to help people understand the positive impact the DMS has in chiropractic care, physical therapy and sports training. Thanks to Dr. Jake people worldwide are experiencing the benefits of using the DMS as part of their treatment.

Dr. Jake’s pride and passion for helping the people heal by using the DMS is only eclipsed by his love, pride and passion for his wife Patti, his two sons Yasha and Nick and his grandchildren, Blake; Jake and Luke.

As one his many close colleges stated… “What should be known about Dr. Jake is that he was a simple man, really proud of his invention, excited about sales, a tasty meal, a little gambling and then back home with Patti. What a gift to all of us you have been! You are someone that I will deeply miss and remember every time I pick up my DMS.”

You will be missed Dr. Jake.


“My body deals with a lot of aches and pains over the course of a 162 game season. Using the DMS Stimulator on a regular basis speeds up my recovery time and helps with the flexibility and mobility I need to perform at the highest level. DMS gives me the comfort of knowing that my body will feel refreshed even after a long day at the ballpark or a tough workout in the gym. DMS is quick and easy to use and I would recommend it to any athlete looking to perform at their best.”

Reducing Muscle Hypertonicity With the Deep Muscle Stimulator

The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) has popularized our awareness of checking for asymmetries in the body during movement. Muscle strains and joint dysfunctions caused by asymmetrical movements over time can generally be reduced by treatment using the Deep Muscle Stimulator (DMS).

The DMS is a hand held device that delivers strong vibration, oscillation, and percussion. Use of the DMS appears to reduce stiffness by signaling inhibition of the sympathetic nervous system. Palpate tight or stiff fascial tissue or a taut and tender muscle fiber, and then apply the Deep Muscle Stimulator (DMS) device for approximately two to three minutes, the post treatment/application will leave the skin red, warm and it will palpate as ‘softer’. This probably has to do with local changes in the arterioles and capilliaries, and the mixing up of tissue viscosity.
