CRPS RibbonAbigail posted a great question here on our website  asking if the other CRPS symptoms (besides the chronic pain) are lessened after Calmare Therapy treatments. I thought it was a terrific query because we focus so much on the MC-5A technology’s ability to reduce pain that we may overlook the added benefits of reducing or eliminating the additional physical symptoms of the syndrome.

Those of you with RSD and CRPS know all-too-well the symptoms I am refCalmare Technology 2012erring to ─

• chronic burning
• severe itching
• extreme skin sensitivity to touch (allodynia)
• open sores
• numbness
• changes in hair and nails
• swelling
• stiffness of joints

The good news is that most – if not all — of these “secondary symptoms” will dissipate once the pain is controlled.

When our RSD and CRPS patients volunteer to make video diaries of their experiences, we try to show the marked changes from their physical side effects ‘before’ and ‘after’ Calmare treatment.

As you can see in this outstanding Calmare patient testimonial from our patient Mr. Harris, the improvement is very significant.
