Tisha, a 30-something respiratory therapist from Vermont, was injured in an auto accident in January 2015 and eventually diagnosed with full body CRPS.
As a medical professional at a large regional medical center, she had access to all the pain management, cutting-edge pain medications and therapeutic treatments available where she aggressively sought pain relief.
She used a myriad of prescribed pain medications, underwent repeated nerve blocks and ongoing physical therapy.
Unfortunately, her CRPS pain was still relentless.
When prescribed medications and traditional pain treatments don’t work
Having exhausted traditional pain management solutions, Tisha researched alternative neuropathic pain therapies and discovered Calmare Therapy NJ during an internet search for “new treatments for CRPS.”
After speaking directly with clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney about her medical history, previous CRPS treatment efforts and current medication usage, they mutually agreed that scrambler therapy was a viable treatment option for her case.
When Tisha arrived in New Jersey, her pain level varied from a minimum of 6 up to 10/10.
She began the 10-treatment regime on Tuesday, September 6, but pain resolution was not immediate. Because Dr. Cooney is a doctor of chiropractic, he diagnosed that Tisha had sustained a slight derangement of the tibia/ fibula and femur junction, as a result of the car accident.
Thankfully, he as able to reduce the derangement through chiropractic manipulation. After this chiropractic procedure was performed, her overall pain began to diminish steadily.
Ensure that your Calmare Therapy provider is “Calmare Certified”
“Calmare is a ‘provider dependent therapy’ which means the patient is reliant upon the expertise of the provider to place the leads in the optimal positions to achieve the most positive outcome,” says Dr. Cooney, one of six “Calmare Certified” providers in the U.S.
At the conclusion of the treatment cycle, Tisha returned to New England with a pain level of 1 / 10 for the first time in nearly 18 months.
