Laurie Mounts was injured in 2008 and later diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). When she presented at Calmare Therapy NJ in early July 2014, her pain level was a 9/10 on her entire left side from her feet up to the shoulder.
Laurie’s symptoms includes discoloration (see image at left), allodynia, numbness, tingling, sweats, swelling, burning and brittle hair.
Before discovering scrambler therapy, Laurie and her family had aggressively sought out several pain relief treatments including physical therapy, prescription medications and, ultimately, the implantation of a spinal cord stimulator ( SCS ).
Ultimately, these chronic pain treatment efforts for CRPS were not successful.
Due to an eventual increase in pain levels, Laurie was bedridden much of her life and relied on sleep medications for the very limited amount of sleep she was able to achieve.
This lovely young woman and her dedicated family persevered, nonetheless.
