Trust us, we’re smiling under these masks!
In mid-May, Rhonda traveled from California for New Jersey to undergo 10 Calmare Therapy treatments after a toe injury in 2016 led to a CRPS diagnosis in both feet.
I was honored to treat her for two weeks, after she had endured four long years of unsuccessful medications, nerve blocks, physical therapy and Ketamine, which ultimately failed to reduce her pain level, which ranged from 2-10.
The hospital lab director had 10 Calmare treatments, once daily lasting about 30 minutes, and left at a 0/1 pain level, even during the night when her pain level traditionally spiked to 8+.
I was elated to use scrambler therapy to help get this healthcare worker back to work, where her heart lies.
But Rhonda is the hero, as she took a gamble, even during COVID-19, to win the war against chronic pain, by traveling 3,000 miles for our treatment.
Next week, she is returning to her beloved career once again, living life to the fullest.
Beginning in mid-May, we re-opened our pain management clinic in New Jersey, where we are treating only one patient at a time for optimal patient, family member and staff safety.
