Teenager Snowboards By for a Post-Calmare Scrambler Therapy Update

February 28, 2019

Last summer, high school football player Austin arrived at our clinic using a cane and could not put weight on his leg/foot.

After surgery for a fractured fibula, he was soon diagnosed with CRPS which caused continued shooting pain; over time small treatment-resistant lesions began to develop on his affected foot (center image).

His family had read about our success treating these lesions and resulting chronic nerve pain from complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) using scrambler therapy.

They flew with Austin from the Southwest for him to undergo treatment and he achieved both pain relief and the lesions on his foot were more than 50% healed after his 2-week treatment (image on right).

Teen Football Star Finds CRPS Pain Relief After Calmare Therapy

Last week, Austin’s parents took the time to let us know how Austin is doing since his scrambler therapy:

Dr. Cooney,
Austin is doing wonderful. It has been a 180 since Calmare treatment, we are ever so grateful to you. Below is a video of him snowboarding!!!! Thank you again for all you do!
Forever Grateful,
Isabel, Duke and Austin 

 

Four Calmare Booster Treatments Later, Liz Puts CRPS Pain Back at 0

October 12, 2017

Liz completes four Calmare booster treatments and heads back to Missouri pain-free.

Liz treated here with us in November of 2014. She was battling increasingly severe CRPS symptoms and it was keeping her from sports (she’s a star basketball player) and just enjoying college.

She was diagnosed with CRPS after a nasty basketball injury to her right leg. Using crutches when she arrived from Missouri, Liz had a consistent pain level of  8 / 10.

But as many of you know, CRPS can rear its ugly head down the road, even when a pain-free level has been achieved.

When Liz’s pain level returned seven months later in 2015, she returned for a few Calmare booster treatments which put the pain into remission until this summer (2017).

She was here a few weeks ago, over two years since her last booster, since her pain had risen to a 6/10.

After four boosters, she went back to her life pain-free once again.

“We’ve been treating CRPS since 2011, so we have a track record of how patients respond months and years after their initial 10-treatment cycle is complete,” explains Calmare Clinical Director Dr. Michael Cooney.

“Those who do experience a pain recurrence, and have one or more boosters, seem to require them less frequently as time goes on, in the majority of cases.”
