When she arrived here for the first time, she had spent the last four years in a wheelchair due to CRPS. (She’s shown here presenting me with a CRPS Warrior Medal for my efforts to help the RSD / CRPS community).
She experienced a pain recurrence and before the pain level elevated, she wisely decided to take action and come in for a few treatments.
Michelle is one of the leaders of a CRPS group in Australia seeking doctors there who are willing to obtain the proper training and begin offering Calmare scrambler therapy in their country. If anyone can get this job done, she will!
Until then, she and her loved ones are willing to make the herculean trip here to the U.S. in order to keep her disease–and the pain–under control.
I’m happy to report she left at a 0/1 pain level after three treatments and no longer needing her walking stick.
My support of this machine to treat people battling RSD and CRPS is unrelenting. I’ve seen it restore and improve the lives of so many good people living with chronic pain every day.
Narcotics, injections, spinal cord stimulators and invasive devices simply don’t work, much of the time.
Does it work for everyone? Sadly, no. But we’re going to keep trying, patient by patient.
