CRPS Warrior Details Her Calmare Therapy Experience

May 3, 2019

crps pain treatment

We were delighted to receive this post-treatment update from our 47-year old female patient who battled complex regional pain syndrome after an injury to her foot in 2017.

Deryn was prescribed a battery of prescription pain medications, ranging from Cymbalta to Gabapentin, which she relied on to achieve (restricted) function of her leg and foot.

Virginia Woman Recounts Her Post-Calmare Treatment Pain Relief

“I received your email last week about your 9-year anniversary treating patients with Calmare Therapy. I just wanted to share with you that I am yet another one of your success stories and so happy to share this with you!

I came to you last April to reduce my pain from CRPS from a minor foot injury.

After:

  • Going to physical therapy 2-3 times a week for a year
  • Receiving 18 nerve blocks (1 of which caused a seizure)
  • Trying numerous medical laser treatments
  • Attempting hypnosis from a psychologist
  • Visiting many different doctors
  • Taking a plethora of pain management medications with many awful side effects

I ultimately reduced my pain from a 10/10 to about a 6 or 7/10 on the pain scale.

I had previously been on crutches and unable to walk independently due to severe pain and muscle atrophy, but these assorted treatments allowed me to walk again.

Traditional Chronic Pain Medications & Therapies Fail

However, I was still not functioning well due to extreme pain and could not bear weight for any extended period of time.

My husband and I were always researching CRPS and various treatment methods. He had come across Calmare Therapy, but I was skeptical and hesitant to try it.

After we felt like we had exhausted all options, we realized this was something worth trying.

We were fortunate to get our health insurance to cover the treatment as in-network since it was not offered anywhere in our geographic region.

Waiting for the Pain Medications to Loosen Their Grip

After two weeks of scrambler therapy, I did have some pain relief, but was a little disappointed because I did not see nearly as much improvement in my pain compared to other patients I met while I was there.

However, I was also still weaning off all the pain medications (and also very sick from that) which may have interfered with the full effectiveness of the treatment.

But once I returned home, the success of the treatment became more apparent as time went by–

About two weeks later,  I felt significant improvement. I was very pleased because I realized that my pain had decreased AND I was off all my medications.

Calmare Booster Therapy Further Reduces Pain Level

In July I decided to return for a week of Calmare booster treatments, as I realized that it probably would work better now that I was fully off the medications.

Once again, about two weeks after returning home, the pain continued to decrease.

As the months have gone by, I continued to see significant gradual improvements.

A year later, I now fluctuate between a 0-2 on the pain scale and sometimes even have full days of no pain!

I feel so fortunate to have found you and your practice and can’t even express in words how appreciative I am to have come to you for help!

You and your staff were very supportive and experienced.

Like so many of your other patients, you have given me a much higher quality of life!

THANK YOU and keep up the great work in the chronic pain community.

With deepest gratitude,

Deryn Feria”

Thanks Dr. Cooney and staff.

I live life now!!! Hugs!

Are you tired of failed pain management treatments?

Dr. Michael Cooney, clinical director, speaks personally with potential scrambler therapy patients every day.

Like Marilyn, If you have been diagnosed with a neuropathy and have not achieved significant relief from medication or other therapies, drug-free, non-invasive Calmare Therapy may be a viable treatment option for you.

If you peruse dozens and dozens of our patient stories, you will see one common thread:

“I had just about given up finding a therapy to reduce or eliminate my debilitating pain.”

U.S. Army Soldier Finds Relief from Full Body CRPS

October 9, 2017

We were honored to meet and provide Calmare scrambler therapy treatment for Jay Szymczak a few weeks ago.

Jay underwent two back surgeries while in the Army, eventually resulting in CRPS, which spread throughout his body. Those of you suffering with this monster will appreciate his description of the type of pain he endured for years.

Eventually forced to retire from the Military, he discovered Calmare after performing research on newer alternative pain management treatments with his wife after pain medications, medical cannabis and a plethora of invasive treatments still left him in debilitating pain.

“Jay’s treatment outcome reminds us why we continue to fight this fight every single day,” says Calmare Clinical Director Dr. Michael Cooney, who treated Jay. “He’s a wonderful husband and father who served his country proudly. He certainly deserves to live pain-free.”

Jay sums it up best in his video below. “I have my life back.”
