Here’s a wonderful example of social media helping people living with chronic pain and other difficult-to-treat conditions. Melissa from Michigan subscribed to a group on Facebook for people living with RSD (reflux sympathetic disorder). Someone with an aggressive case of RSD and fibromyalgia posted about Dr. Cooney and Calmare Pain Therapy as a treatment that finally relieved her chronic pain after years of fruitless medications and invasive procedures.
After asking questions (“Can you perform the therapy even though I have a spinal cord stimulator?’) and talking personally with Dr. Cooney about her condition and other therapies she had tried, she made the trek to New Jersey. Melissa shares her inspiring story here.
