One of our beloved patients, Joy Morris visited the clinic this week to undergo three booster treatments.
In 2013, she arrived at Calmare NJ USA with a pain level of 10/10 due to RSD pain running from her left knee to her foot.
After her successful therapy, (she left New Jersey at a 0 / 10 pain level), her chronic pain from RSD diminished to the point that she no longer needed any of the 10 pain medications she was prescribed.
Living a Pain Medication-Free Life
Once Joy was free from all the pain pills, her overall health and well-being improved dramatically:
She began to have more energy and lost a significant amount of weight.
In turn, she soon no longer needed high blood pressure medication.
Joy no longer needs medication for elevated liver enzymes which returned to a normal range as a result of post-Calmare weight-loss and the elimination of pain drugs.
“While Juana was experiencing a very high pain level, I had treated other patients with her similar medical history and felt confident we would achieve a positive outcome,” Dr. Cooney explains.
Each day, Juana received a single scrambler therapy treatment and then returned to her hotel to rest.
After a full week of Calmare treatments, her pain had reduced to a 5/6; at the conclusion of her 10 sessions, her pain has reduced to a 2/3 for the first time in nearly eight years.
In addition, her additional physical symptoms noted above are now gone, with the exception of slight temperature sensitivity and pins and needles. (This may be due to the extreme cold temperatures we are experiencing in New Jersey now.)
“Of course we strive to send every patient home with no pain–but that is not possible for everyone,” Dr. Cooney noted.
“But living with a pain level this low (2/3) allows the person to fully engage in life again and resume normal functioning.”
The Certified Calmare provider remarked that Juana was extremely pleased with her outcome.
Juana was also in touch with another woman living with CRPS from Ecuador, who is currently undergoing treatment with us this week.

Last year, Pattie, our first of several patients from Australia, traveled to New Jersey, USA to try Calmare scrambler therapy. Developing a severe case of CRPS after knee replacement surgery, she had been through many unsuccessful treatments to overcome her severe post-surgical chronic pain.
When doctors eventually suggested implanting a spinal cord stimulator (SCS), Pattie and her husband concluded it was time to take matters into their own hands and find a solution to her CRPS on their own.
Researching Chronic Pain Alternative Treatments
After months of research, they discovered Calmare and learned that we specialize in RSD /CRPS treatment.
When we met Pattie after her arduous 24-hour flight, she was taking nearly 30 pain medications daily (which, sadly, is not unusual).
And so, we went to work.
Pattie Achieves 0 Pain Level and Dissolution of her CRPS Symptoms
After 11 treatments (she achieved a 0 pain level by the 10th treatment) Pattie left the U.S. pain-free in all parts of her body–including her knee–for the first time since her surgery three years ago (watch her personal video recap).
Our Calmare NJ family and her family will be friends for life, regardless of the fact that we live nearly 12,000 apart…
“Since my last treatment with you and at home I have been in remission from my CRPS pain and I’m down to only 3 meds a day–that’s a big difference from 30 meds a day! So life is better each day thanks to your dedication & kindness and your wonderful staff. Today I saw a pain specialist and he can’t believe I’m recovering from CRPS. He is now asking about Calmare! He said to me ‘you are a very lucky girl’ and I said it wasn’t luck at all. We just didn’t give up on ‘hope’. Thank you Doc for saving my life. Best wishes Pattie”
“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.”
Kansas City, MO
“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!”
