El síndrome de dolor regional complejo (SDRC)
Juana, age 44, from Columbia, was diagnosed in 2009 with CRPS in both legs after an injury and eventual surgery.
En español es síndrome de dolor regional complejo (SDRC) también llamado distrofia simpática refleja.
Over the years, she was prescribed a lengthy list of prescription medications to lessen her chronic pain, including Ketamine, epidurals and nerve blocks.
These efforts provided no pain relief and her symptoms expanded to include:
sensitivity to temperature changes
pins and needles sensations
Juana and her husband discovered Dr. Michael Cooney‘s use of Calmare scrambler therapy as a pain management therapy to lessen the symptoms of CRPS.
After a video conference consultation, the wife and mother of two children was approved to undergo therapy and the couple arrived in New Jersey, USA in early December, 2017.
When Juana presented at our clinic, her pain level was a consistent 9/10, and had been at this level for some time.
After reviewing her medical records, Dr. Cooney formulated a treatment plan for optimal placement of the Calmare leads, in conjunction with her original pain regions.
“While Juana was experiencing a very high pain level, I had treated other patients with her similar medical history and felt confident we would achieve a positive outcome,” Dr. Cooney explains.
Each day, Juana received a single scrambler therapy treatment and then returned to her hotel to rest.
After a full week of Calmare treatments, her pain had reduced to a 5/6; at the conclusion of her 10 sessions, her pain has reduced to a 2/3 for the first time in nearly eight years.
In addition, her additional physical symptoms noted above are now gone, with the exception of slight temperature sensitivity and pins and needles. (This may be due to the extreme cold temperatures we are experiencing in New Jersey now.)
“Of course we strive to send every patient home with no pain–but that is not possible for everyone,” Dr. Cooney noted.
“But living with a pain level this low (2/3) allows the person to fully engage in life again and resume normal functioning.”
The Certified Calmare provider remarked that Juana was extremely pleased with her outcome.
Juana was also in touch with another woman living with CRPS from Ecuador, who is currently undergoing treatment with us this week.
