Pattie and her husband have just completed her Calmare Therapy and left us to begin their long trek back to Perth, Western Australia. Pattie underwent a total knee replacement a few years ago resulting in an eventual CRPS diagnosis.
Doctors recommend SCS
She knew the myriad of narcotics she was prescribed for chronic neuropathy were not lessening her symptoms or helping to stop the pain that was spreading throughout her body. When doctors eventually suggested implanting a spinal cord stimulator (SCS), she and her husband concluded it was time to take matters into their own hands and find a solution to her CRPS on their own.
After weeks of research and networking across the globe with others suffering with CRPS, they consistently observed a consistent message from several people who achieved a successful medical outcome with the help of Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment.
Enduring a 24-hour flight in search of pain relief
This determined couple conducted interviews with Calmare doctors in the U.S. They spoke with me on several occasions about my personal treatment protocol for RSD and CRPS patients. Eventually, they decided to make the herculean trip here to New York / New Jersey.
Pattie had extensive pain in several regions of her body along with swelling, discoloration and ongoing sweating spells; she was also physically debilitated by all the medications she had been using (up to 30 pills per day).
We began daily scrambler therapy treatments each lasting about an hour. I determined after the second treatment that we were already making positive progress as she acknowledged a reduction in pain in certain areas. Slowly, after every therapy session, Pattie’s pain reduction lasted for longer stretches of time.
Pattie achieves 0 pain and dissolution of her CRPS symptoms
After 11 treatments (she achieved a 0 pain level by the 10th treatment) she left the U.S. pain-free in all parts of her body–including her knee–for the first time since her surgery three years ago.
Pattie, an intelligent wife and mother of four children, has generously contributed a video diary of her Calmare experience to share with other CRPS patients who may be in search of a drug-free, pain-free treatment for their chronic pain. We’ll be sharing her story with you very soon.
This couple endured a 24 hour plane ride to come here for the Calmare MC-5A scrambler therapy treatment and I am delighted to say she left us as a lighter person with no pain, which is the way it should be.
Stay tuned for her great story. Pattie has inspired us all to do everything we can to spread the word about Calmare scrambler therapy to the CRPS / RSD community.

Pattie offers this advice: “You just need to try this because it may just give you back the life you enjoyed before CRPS stole it away.”
