Two Calmare Booster Treatments Eliminate Teen’s CRPS Pain Recurrence

June 10, 2019

Calmare reduces chronic pain

Seventeen-year-old Gizzelle arrived at our New Jersey clinic in September 2018 unable to walk due to severe pain caused by CRPS in her left leg.

After she underwent 10 Calmare scrambler therapy treatments over the course of two weeks, we were elated to watch her walk out of our clinic, unassisted.

In June, to offset a recent increase in pain, she returned over the weekend to undergo two booster treatments, one Saturday and one Sunday, leaving us pain-free once again.

She and her parent headed back to Virginia immediately so she could return to school on Monday morning to complete her final exams.

Ronald McDonald HouseGizzelle’s family was able to lodge at the Ronald McDonald House for children and young adults under the age of 21 at a very affordable rate.

What are Calmare Booster Treatments?

Depending on the severity of the original chronic nerve pain condition–and the length of time the patient has been experiencing neuropathy–periodic booster treatments may be required to combat any return of pain after the initial protocol of 10 treatments.

The length of time between the first course of treatment and any potential need for follow-up boosters can be months or several years.

In more advanced stages of prolonged or severe neuropathy, a single or series of boosters can be extremely useful against an elevation in pain.

Booster treatments can be as few as a single session to as many as 10, which will be mutually determined after a physical examination by our clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney, in cooperation with the patient/family if the patient is under age 18.

Calmare Keeps Tonya’s CRPS from Spreading

March 23, 2018

Tonya Schuler, a full-of-life fitness trainer from West Virginia, was diagnosed with CRPS after carpal tunnel surgery. The chronic pain started in one hand and soon spread to the other.

From there, the neuropathy affected her neck, back and stomach.

After trying a myriad of prescription pain drugs, injections and invasive procedures, her pain management doctor eventually recommended she have a spinal cord stimulator (SCS) surgically implanted into her back.

“When I realized an SCS was the final treatment option, I knew I had to take matters into my own (painful) hands and reach out to the CRPS community,” explains.

“A Facebook group that included thousands of other sufferers consistently mentioned Dr. Cooney and Calmare for helping reduce their pain, even for full-body sufferers.”

Tonya says she sent off an email to him (calmarenj@gmail.com) and he called her the next day.

Teen from Indiana Interviewed About Upcoming CRPS Treatment at Calmare NJ USA

February 19, 2017

pediatric-chronic-painPediatric pain specialist Dr. James Tolley at the Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis recommended Emily Blake and her family contact Calmare NJ USA clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney to consider scrambler therapy as a pediatric pain management treatment for her spreading CRPS pain.

The media heard about the teenager’s challenging chronic pain condition (CRPS) and healthcare journalist Jennifer Boen wrote a heartfelt account of the family’s struggle to find a treatment to lessen or end their daughter’s debilitating pain.

Fort Wayne News-Sentinel Excerpt:

“I’m never not in pain,” Blake said, giving a vivid description of sensation: “I feel like I’m wrapped in barbed wire.” Once a champion swimmer and diver who placed first in the city and 11th in the state in butterfly, Blake can no longer tolerate the feel of the pool water. She’s undergone six nerve blocks, seen seven specialists, had many weeks of physical therapy and been prescribed an increasing number of medications.

We look forward to welcoming the Blake family next month and will do everything within our power to help her. Stay tuned!
