You may recall Joy Morris was here with us last summer for the 10-treatment series of Calmare Therapy to combat reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) located in her left knee down through her foot. When she arrived, her pain level was 10/10.
Since her successful therapy, (she left New Jersey at a 0 / 10 pain level), her chronic pain from RSD diminished to the point that she no longer needed any of the 10 pain medications she was prescribed. But the good news didn’t end there.
Once Joy was free from all the pain pills, her overall health and well-being improved dramatically:
- She began to have more energy and lost a significant amount of weight.
- In turn, she soon no longer needed high blood pressure medication.
- Joy no longer needs medication for elevated liver enzymes which returned to a normal range as a result of post-Calmare weight-loss and the elimination of pain drugs.
The benefits of life without pain medications
“In less than a year, I lost 55 pounds and three dress sizes!” the West Virginian mother and grandmother says. “You’d be surprised how alive and active you can be when you aren’t living every day in the pain medication haze.”
Since Calmare, Joy says she has saved nearly $7,000 in doctor visits and prescription drug costs. “This has been a very good thing because I was able to use the savings to buy a new wardrobe!”
“Last week, before Joy’s two Calmare booster treatments, her pain level had intermittently increased as high as a 7 but hovered around a 3. After two boosters lasting 40-minutes each, she left at a 0 pain level again,” Dr. Cooney reports.
“Joy is a vivacious, happy person who deserves to live a pain-free life. Her RSD was one of the more severe cases I have treated; I am very pleased that she was able to sustain a 10-month span before she needed any follow-up treatments.”
