After sustaining a bone bruise in 2011, 21-year-old Sara was eventually diagnosed with CRPS, which progressed to full body CRPS as the years progressed and her treatment efforts were unsuccessful.
She sought treatment from outstanding healthcare providers, including the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), where she underwent several rounds of physical therapy and occupational therapy.
But her pain level, ranging from 4 to 9 /10, persisted.
She also battled additional RSD symptoms including:
- Skin discoloration
- Allodynia (pain that results from a stimulus that is not normally painful, like a piece of light fabric grazing the skin)
- Intermittent tingling sensations
- Poor sleep quality
- Sensitivity to temperature changes
Dr. Michael Cooney Performs 10 Calmare Therapy Treatments
Sara heard about Dr. Cooney online and watched Calmare NJ USA patient reviews on YouTube, particularly cases which involved people battling full body CRPS.
She had already tried traditional medical treatments without success; from her perspective, it was time to try an alternative pain management solution.
In early January 2017, Sara arrived here in New Jersey and began daily treatments which lasted about 35-minutes each. Her therapy sessions were set for the same time each day. She started feeling less pain after the first treatment, which occurs more often than you might expect.
By session number five, her physical symptoms began to diminish, the span of time her pain was lessened grew longer, and her overall pain level continued to decrease.
Last Friday, the college student completed her treatment series and left at a 0 /
10, pain-free, for the first time in years. But that’s not all–all of Sara’s additional physical symptoms (noted above) were also eliminated.
“Sara’s case was a textbook outcome that we pray every Calmare patient experiences,” says Dr.
Cooney. “She had been in pain from CRPS for six years since a minor injury derailed her life. I could not be happier with her outcome.”
Sara has kindly offered to create a video review of her Calmare experience. But, for now, she’s focusing on getting back to school, socializing with friends and living the full life that any 20-something young woman deserves.
Are You Batting CRPS or RSD?
Our clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney, and his partner, Robert Kelly, MD, have successfully treated hundreds of children, teens, adults and seniors with this debilitating chronic disease. But it is not right for everyone, nor does it always provide the outcome that Sara experienced, unfortunately.
But countless patients have been able to “get their lives back again” and resume living pain-free, or live with a significantly reduced, sustained level of pain.
