Pattie from Australia beats her CRPS with Calmare Therapy

Pattie S.

By Dr. Michael Cooney

Pattie and her husband have just completed her Calmare Therapy and left us to begin their long trek back to Perth, Western Australia. Pattie underwent a total knee replacement a few years ago resulting in an eventual CRPS diagnosis.

Doctors recommend SCS

She knew the myriad of narcotics she was prescribed for chronic neuropathy were not lessening her symptoms or helping to stop the pain that was  spreading throughout her body.  When doctors eventually suggested implanting a spinal cord stimulator (SCS), she and her husband concluded it was time to take matters into their own hands and find a solution to her CRPS on their own.

After weeks of research and networking across the globe with others suffering with CRPS, they consistently observed a consistent message from several people who achieved a successful medical outcome with the help of Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment.

Enduring a 24-hour flight in search of pain relief

This determined couple conducted interviews with Calmare doctors in the U.S. They spoke with me on several occasions about my personal treatment protocol for RSD and CRPS patients. Eventually, they decided to make the herculean trip here to  New York / New Jersey.

Pattie had extensive pain in several regions of her body along with swelling, discoloration and ongoing sweating spells; she was also   physically debilitated by all the medications she had been using (up to 30 pills per day).

We began daily scrambler therapy treatments each lasting about an hour. I determined after the second treatment that we were already making positive progress as she acknowledged a reduction in pain in certain areas. Slowly, after every therapy session, Pattie’s pain reduction lasted for longer stretches of time.

Pattie achieves 0 pain and dissolution of her CRPS symptoms

After 11 treatments (she achieved a 0 pain level by the 10th treatment) she 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.

Pattie, an intelligent wife and mother of four children, has generously contributed a video diary of her Calmare experience to share with other CRPS patients who may be in search of a drug-free, pain-free treatment for their chronic pain. We’ll be sharing her story with you very soon.

This couple endured a 24 hour plane ride to come here for the Calmare MC-5A scrambler therapy treatment and I am delighted to say she left us as a lighter person with no pain, which is the way it should be.

Stay tuned for her great story.  Pattie has  inspired us all to do everything we can to spread the word about Calmare scrambler therapy to the CRPS / RSD community.

Pattie offers this advice:  “You just need to try this because it may just give you back the life you enjoyed before CRPS stole it away.”

Welcoming Calmare patient with CRPS from Australia

May 1, 2014

Australia flagI took a few days of R & R with my family last week but, to be honest, I was eager to get back and check-in on my existing Calmare scrambler therapy patients and start our standard 10-treatment series protocol for a lovely woman who arrived here last weekend from Perth, Australia. She began treatment on Monday, April 28.

She was diagnosed with chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS) in 2012 after knee surgery. Her CRPS condition expanded into her left leg and eventually up to her right arm.

We began corresponding earlier this year and she ultimately took the long, long 24-hour plane ride (particularly with her chronic pain condition) from Perth to New York City.

When she arrived, her pain level bounced between 7 – 9 . Thus, our challenge is substantial. After three Calmare treatments, I can say, “So far, so very good.” I look forward to updating you on her progress going forward.

Joy’s Calmare Therapy for RSD reinvigorates her health ─ and her checkbook

Joy Morris_3.2014You may recall Joy Morris was here with us last summer for the 10-treatment series of Calmare Therapy  to combat reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) located in her left knee down through her foot. When she arrived, her pain level was 10/10.

Since 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. But the good news didn’t end there.

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.

The benefits of life without pain medications

“In less than a year, I lost 55 pounds and three dress sizes!” the West Virginian mother and grandmother says. “You’d be surprised how alive and active you can be when you aren’t living every day in the pain medication haze.”

Since Calmare, Joy says she has saved nearly $7,000 in doctor visits and prescription drug costs. “This has been a very good thing because I was able to use the savings to buy a new wardrobe!”

“Last week, before Joy’s two Calmare booster treatments, her pain level had intermittently increased as high as a 7 but hovered around a 3. After two boosters lasting 40-minutes each, she left at a 0 pain level again,” Dr. Cooney reports.

“Joy is a vivacious, happy person who deserves to live a pain-free life. Her RSD was one of the more severe cases I have treated; I am very pleased that she was able to sustain a 10-month span before she needed any follow-up treatments.”
