Matthew is Wheelchair-Free after Calmare Therapy

Due to immobility from CRPS, Matthew from New York has not attended school since he was 11-years-old. (He was diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome after a non-surgical injury to his ankle). His family took him to several pain management specialists; he underwent multiple invasive nerve blocks and even tried Ketamine infusions without sustained success.

“Helping children with treatment-resistant nerve pain using a drug-free, non-invasive therapy is the highlight of my career,” says Dr. Michael Cooney with CRPS warrior Matthew.

Matthew arrived in New Jersey two weeks ago, relying on a wheelchair and battling an uncontrolled 10/10 pain level.

And we went to work.

He had scrambler therapy for two weeks (treatments last about 35 minutes/day). And the pain reduction began quickly and consistently. Yesterday, he finished his final Calmare treatment and the results are what we strive for with every patient:

  1. He is leaving us pain-free for the first time in two years.
  2. He is standing again.

After a rest period, Matthew will start PT to relearn walking and then return to school, just like any other 13-year-old.
