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.”

Oklahomian Brandon Willis was diagnosed with CRPS after foot surgery in 2013. Like many sufferers, prescribed opiates did not lessen his pain or help relieve other symptoms, particularly periodic swelling.
He discovered Dr. Cooney and Calmare Therapy after he joined several online CRPS groups, seeking support and treatment recommendations.
Brandon and his family headed east to New Jersey for treatment earlier this month. As he continued to feel better, they also made good use of the clinic’s close proximity to New York City and enjoyed several days of sightseeing.

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.
A CRPS warrior offers advice to others struggling with the disease
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.”
I 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.
For the past year, I’ve had the honor of guesting on Joseph Aquilino’s “RSD and You” BlogTalk radio program. Joey has a tremendous national following of people who are living with chronic pain conditions. He has suffered with severe RSD as a result of a workplace accident nearly five years. He recently underwent Calmare Therapy for the first time and had the most positive results with this non-invasive, drug-free therapy than others he tried. You can follow his Calmare treatment diary here.

We had a wonderful experience using Calmare Therapy to finally end our ‘California Girl’s” chronic pain from CRPS. Amy traveled here from San Francisco after her treatment at the Pain Treatment Center – Stanford University School of Medicine did not lessen her pain. Thankfully, she connected with one of our Calmare patient families from Ohio who recommended she come here to NJ for treatment. After 10 treatments with us, Amy flew home last Friday pain-free (0 pain level). She kindly offered to make a video of her Calmare treatment experience which we will be sharing soon. Thanks for bringing a little California sunshine to us Amy!

Calmare Patient Quotations
“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.”
