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…
Pattie went back to Perth and was interviewed by the TV News where she shared her Calmare success story.
Pattie Sends an Update a Year Later
This busy wife and mother of four children sent us an update yesterday saying,
“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”
