Emily Hewatt is a wonderful young woman who gained global attention in her quest to find a pain management solution for the CRPS she had been battling for four years. The pain and side effects of the disease had kept her inside, unable to enjoy a true quality of life.
She had foot surgery in 2012 and the symptoms of CRPS began about a month after the operation. Her condition and pain region continued to expand from her lower extremities up the right side of her body.
Due to extreme sensitivity in her foot and leg, she eventually required the support of a wheelchair full-time. In addition, she has not been able to wear shoes on her feet for years.
Discovering a new treatment for CRPS from a fellow Aussie
She discovered Calmare through another woman from Australia who had achieved life-changing pain relief. Her quest to raise the funds began, attracting media attention:
After her successful pain management outcome with us in 2016, almost two years to the day, she left us pain-free and without the need of a wheelchair.
The severity of her CRPS condition will require lifelong healthcare maintenance, which Emily recently shared and generously permitted us to share with you.
Emi sends a update on her health two years after scrambler therapy
It has been two years since I was so humbly blessed with tremendous generosity and support which allowed me to be further blessed by the caring hands of Dr. Cooney and his team.
It was a very scary and daunting adventure traveling from our tiny town in North East Victoria, Australia halfway around the world to Rutherford, New Jersey, USA in search of a pain management treatment for my CRPS.
My treatment outcome was life-changing, to say the least. I left New Jersey without any pain, without the need of a wheelchair. It was just unbelievable.
For the first two weeks post treatment I did as I was told and did nothing but rest and recover.
On the 15th day however, we had to execute a charity trail ride we had organized months earlier. After four years of excruciating pain forcing me bound within the walls of our home. It was my first full day out and walking!
Until later that night when we got home and my body was on fire and I was back in my wheelchair just to get inside from the car, I could barely move.
That was when I realized that even though I had felt amazing–with no pain since the Calmare treatment–that I still had CRPS and needed to manage it.
So that has been the underlying theme of my life, to keep myself feeling as good as possible and as often as possible, and I’d say I am doing pretty well at it.
This drove home for me how important, especially now, it was to take care of myself, which is how we eventually came across Calmare Therapy or scrambler therapy as we now know it as in Australia.
My philosophy is do whatever you need to do to feel better.
Now two years since my Calmare Therapy,
I don’t really think about the CRPS all that
much—even after enduring four years of constant pain.
I have learned how to live my life so when I do get pain and become symptomatic from time to time, it’s not a big deal. I have all the tools, like the scrambler therapy, and knowledge I need to manage it.
The only one who truly knows me and knows what is right for me is me.
So thank you, Dr. Cooney, and your team and everyone who has shared their generosity and support with me.
Only I will ever truly know how much you all have given back to me.
Emi Hewatt, North East Victoria, Australia
