Kelly is a happy, full-of-life young mother who endured debilitating pain and limited mobility after a CRPS diagnosis as a result of knee replacement surgery.
After trying invasive treatments, including Ketamine therapy (“I wouldn’t wish that on anyone…”) she discovered Calmare scrambler therapy and traveled 3,000 to be treated by Dr. Michael Cooney, clinical director, Calmare Therapy NJ, USA.
Before she headed home to her family, she shared her experience in this video:

I hope this gets through in time for the radio show. Anyway, here’s my story–
After right knee replacement surgery 1 1/2 years ago, I experienced severe pain in right foot. After much searching, it was diagnosed as RSD. We tried many different types of therapy, none of which helped. I was also able to see a specialist in doing Ketamine Infusions, but was rejected. Looking back on that, I am so glad to have not gone through that because of the invasion that would have occurred on my body. The only thing that brought any relief was opiate prescriptions and that only took a bit of the edge off. Many nights, when the pain was at an 8 or 9 level, with 10 being the absolute worst, I cried myself to sleep, if I could sleep at all. It was extremely challenging and depressing.
Over this past Thanksgiving weekend my wife and I discovered this new therapy, called Calmare, which we had never heard of before. Upon looking into it further, we decided to call Dr. Cooney to see if there was the possibility that this therapy could help. We set an appointment and were thrilled that there at least was some possibility for some relief from the intense pain. Dr. Cooney offered to do one treatment to see if there was any help at all in lowering the pain. After one treatment, I felt minimal, if any, pain and was able to walk up and down stairs normally, which I had not been able to do since before the knee surgery!! Imagine our delight! It looked as though the treatment was going to help.
I completed the 10 initial treatments several days ago, and I can confidently report to you that I am currently having minimal, if any, pain at all in my foot!! It is a miracle!! And, oh, by the way, I am no longer taking any pain medications at all!! My wife and I are so grateful to have found Rutherford Allied and Dr. Cooney, and we are so grateful for the relief from the pain. We realize that this treatment may not have cured the problem, but we are confident that we have found a non-invasive therapy that will dramatically ease the pain!! Thank you, Dr. Cooney, and thank you to the wonderful and caring staff at the office!
“Thanks for all you do Dr. Cooney, not just for me, but for all of us. My RSD pain is still at 0, hands and feet still improving from CIPN. Did I mention I planted a garden and mowed the lawn today?”
“If you, or someone you know is experiencing pain from cancer, seriously, look into Calmare. I wouldn’t steer you the wrong way. Dr. Cooney knows what’s up! Dr Michael Cooney, you’re the main man in my book when it comes to Calmare Therapy.”
“A little over a year ago and still pain free! I ran for the first time last week! Thank you Dr. Cooney and Calmare NJ, you gave me my life back!”
“My doctor recommended a spinal cord stimulator as a last resort to help with my CRPS pain. But I researched Calmare and decided to go to Dr. Cooney in NJ for treatment. I had nothing to lose. Ten treatments later, I am going home at a 0 on the pain scale. I am overjoyed.”

“Thanks to you guys, my own Christmas will be filled with joy and celebration as I embark on a new pain-free journey in 2015! Your admirable dedication to healing will always be an inspiration for me.”
“I am really feeling like I have a new lease on life. As strange as it may seem, it took some time to get used to having no pain!”
“Someone I knew who had the same condition recommended I go to NJ for scrambler treatment with Dr. Cooney for my CRPS. Arrived a skeptic..left in so much less pain.”
Mark Stomp (parent of patient)
“We chose Dr. Cooney because he has successfully treated so many people with CRPS. Also, his staff was very nice and inviting and his patients I spoke to had tremendous results. It has been 5 months since my daughter’s treatment and she is still pain free, symptom free, and taking no meds.”
“You just need to try this treatment because it may just give you back the life you enjoyed before CRPS stole it away.”

“We will always remember and cherish your help in getting our daughter to where we can hug her again!! You are such a special man and healer. God Bless you and may He continue to use you to bring healing and compassion to others!”
