As a doctor in practice for more than 30 years, it’s hard to stay in touch with all of our patients, although we try, believe me. Since Facebook came along, and we added Calmare Therapy which has brought us patients from coast-to-coast and around the world, we can keep up to date on patients, their families, and all life’s important milestones.
Most mornings, I start my day by checking my Facebook page to see how everyone is doing.
Today, I had a wonderful post from Kelly Tolar, a Texas mother who treated here last year for advanced RSD, which was not responding to any medication or therapies.
Kelly, a busy wife and mother, had endured debilitating pain and limited mobility for 10 long years after her CRPS diagnosis as a result of knee replacement surgery.
After trying invasive pain management treatments, including Ketamine therapy (“I wouldn’t wish that on anyone…”) she and her husband discovered Calmare Therapy online and came to see us here in New Jersey.
Thankfully, she achieved a significant reduction in pain and has been able to curtail her need for pain medications.
Six months since her 10-treatment series, Kelly shared this update:

I’ve been meaning to tell you that my foot pain has been completely gone for about 2 months now and I’m still in the process of weaning of all my pain meds. After being on so many for 10 years or so, it’s been a struggle but I’m still working on it. Managed to go from 100 mg fentanyl patchs to ZERO patches!
Also am down from 100 mg nucenta to 50 mg now.
That’s the last of the pain meds after that!
Minor leg pain from time to time but not much over a 2 or 3!
Just wanted to share my progress and how good I feel and not having to complain 50 times a day that I’m in pain!!!
Kelly’s story is why we offer Calmare scrambler therapy. It can change lives. I wish I could say everyone will achieve this outcome, but believe me, that is our goal.
Kelly tells her story below:
