Last night, (with the chair next to my air conditioning vent and two fans blowing on me due to the incredible heat wave we’re experiencing…) I was thinking about a patient I am treating this week from Louisiana.
A few years ago, my patients were locals from the Bergen County, New Jersey area. My sole purpose for introducing Calmare was to offer a drug-free, pain-free alternative treatment just for my own patients who did not respond to PT or chiropractic therapy. (I have been in pain management for a long time and still don’t believe drugs are the solution for acute or chronic neuropathy).
Little did I know that my certification as a Calmare provider would open the door to patients from around the U.S. and even the world. Today, our staff spends a good portion of each day helping out-of-town patients secure travel and local accommodations near our office. From California to Mississippi, Maryland and Indiana, we have met wonderful people from just about every state.
Then, just this morning, we confirmed our first patient coming next month from Australia.
The MC-5A machine has the capacity to help so many people living in pain every minute of every day. Can it help everyone? Unfortunately, no. But I am consistently seeing significant decreases in pain levels (as well as pain levels reduced to 0) in 80 percent of the patients I am treating.
Way back when, after I introduced Calmare for my own patients here in my little corner of New Jersey, I had no idea the geographic doors it would open. I am honored. More importantly, we are more determined (than ever) to get the word out and help people from anywhere and everywhere. Welcome all. Let’s get to work.
