Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome Association (RSDSA) Publishes Calmare Article By Dr. Michael Cooney

October 4, 2016

rsdsaSince we began treating RSD / CRPS patients back in 2011, we have followed and shared the educational and supportive content from RSDSA.org, a not-for-profit organization operating since 1984.

Today, for the first time in its history, RSDSA published a comprehensive article about Calmare Therapy, authored by our clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney.

Presented in Q&A format, the scrambler therapy overview includes pointed and objective questions about what scrambler therapy is–and what it is not.

If you have not discovered RSDSA,  whose sole mission is to offer CRPS / RSD warriors (and loved ones) valuable resources not only cope with CRPS/RSD–but to live well, we hope you will visit their website.

While you are visiting, please read Dr. Cooney’s article:

An Update from Kelly Since Her Calmare Therapy for CRPS

April 13, 2016

As a doctor in practice for more than 30 years, it’s hard to stay in touch with all of our patients, although we try, believe me. Since Facebook came along, and we added Calmare Therapy which has brought us patients from coast-to-coast and around the world, we can keep up to date on patients, their families, and all life’s important milestones.

facebook-iconMost mornings, I start my day by checking my Facebook page to see how everyone is doing.

Today, I had a wonderful post from Kelly Tolar, a Texas mother who treated here last year for advanced RSD, which was not responding to any medication or therapies.

Kelly, a busy wife and mother, had endured debilitating pain and limited mobility for 10 long years after her CRPS diagnosis as a result of knee replacement surgery.

After trying invasive pain management treatments, including Ketamine therapy (“I wouldn’t wish that on anyone…”) she and her husband discovered Calmare Therapy online and came to see us here in New Jersey.

Thankfully, she achieved a significant reduction in pain and has been able to curtail her need for pain medications.

Six months since her 10-treatment series, Kelly shared this update:

Dr Cooney,

I’ve been meaning to tell you that my foot pain has been completely gone for about 2 months now and I’m still in the process of weaning of all my pain meds. After being on so many for 10 years or so, it’s been a struggle but I’m still working on it. Managed to go from 100 mg fentanyl patchs to ZERO patches!

Also am down from 100 mg nucenta to 50 mg now.

That’s the last of the pain meds after that!

Minor leg pain from time to time but not much over a 2 or 3!

Just wanted to share my progress and how good I feel and not having to complain 50 times a day that I’m in pain!!!

Kelly’s story is why we offer Calmare scrambler therapy. It can change lives. I wish I could say everyone will achieve this outcome, but believe me, that is our goal.

Kelly tells her story below:

Dr. Michael Cooney Featured in Australian Newspaper with CRPS Patient Success Story

February 1, 2016

Border Mail 1
February 7, 2016

Since Dr. Cooney introduced Calmare Therapy in New Jersey in 2011, patients have traveled from around the world to come for treatment personally administered by him.

Pattie Sgherza was one of the first patients to come to us from Australia in 2014. After her “life-saving” positive outcome against severe CRPS pain, she spoke with television media about her positive neuropathic pain treatment experience, which was seen by Michelle Platschinda, another RSD pain sufferer.

Last year, Michelle Platschinda traveled to see Dr. Cooney after a 24-hour flight to New York City in an effort to combat her advanced CRPS.

We still remember the day Michelle arrived in a wheelchair.

And, we are overjoyed to report, we recall even more clearly when she completed treatment and walked out of our office, unassisted, for the first time in years.

Calmare patient leads global CRPS awareness effort

Since then, she has been a woman on a global mission to increase awareness of CRPS and bring Calmare Therapy to Australia. Last year, she launched the Purple Bucket organization to do just that.

Yesterday, she was interviewed about her mission, her CRPS battle and her positive Calmare treatment outcome in The Border Mail newspaper.

Like many patients who come here for RSD pain treatment, Michelle and her supportive loved ones, are now like family to us.

michelle and Dr. CWe are in awe of her relentless tenacity to “get the word out” that Calmare scrambler therapy exists and the desperate need for this treatment to be available in her country–and around the world.

Josh Overcomes RSD Pain with Calmare Therapy and Marries his True Love

There’s nothing we love more than a happy ending after a long battle with treatment-resistant neuropathy.

We talked with Josh several times before he and his girlfriend decided to come to NJ and undergo Calmare Therapy for his spreading RSD after a hand injury two years ago.

As you know from his earlier story, after being treated by our clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney, who specializes in CRPS and RSD patients, he left our clinic with little or no pain–and a future wife!

Now newlyweds, Josh and his bride are on their way to living happily ever after.

Josh is a smart man, to be sure. He messaged us this morning saying,

“Married life is amazing. Our wedding day was perfect and I mentioned your name in my vows while holding _____’s hand with my left hand! We had a gorgeous day and it went so smoothly we couldn’t believe it. I am slowly gaining back the muscle I had lost, still listening to my body and resting the instant I feel weak or sore in any way.”

Thank YOU Josh, for allowing us to share your inspiring story. Take good care. Call us if you need us.

A wrist surgery leads to reflex sympathetic dystrophy ( RSD) covering right side of body

RAM logo_original

 

 

July 2014:  Calmare Therapy NJ Case Study

RSD is a heartless disease. For many patients, it begins near an area of the body which has sustained an injury or surgery and, over time, can spread to other parts of the body. Kim Williamson from upstate New York can certainly relate:

Kim Williamson_FINALKim sustained a right wrist injury that required two surgeries on the top and bottom of her wrist. Her RSD began in her right shoulder but by the time she arrived here in New Jersey for Calmare scrambler therapy treatment, she was in a wheelchair. The RSD spread down the right side of her body into her leg. The pain from walking was so debilitating, she could no longer walk at all. If she was forced to use her leg, she would drag it behind her to avoid putting any pressure on it at all.

In addition to the chronic neuropathy, Kim has skin discoloration, allodynia, open sores on the upper right arm and difficulty sleeping.

“I couldn’t believe this was happening to me. I felt like I had lost my life and nothing was normal anymore,” Kim recalls. She was no longer able to work and relied on the standard protocol of RSD painkillers to get through the day.

Kim sees The Doctors” television program about Calmare scrambler therapy

Kim watched the June 2014 episode of the nationally syndicated television show, “The Doctors” which featured Calmare Therapy. “I liked that it wasn’t a painful treatment and didn’t have any side effects,” Kim explains. “I was determined to see if this could help me get even a little of my old life back.”

Kim said, in a best case scenario, she hoped that Calmare chronic pain treatment might help her to walk again and ideally lessen her pain by 80 percent.

Dr. Cooney weighs in on Kim’s case

“You never get used to seeing a Calmare patient arrive for treatment in a wheelchair,” Dr. Cooney says. “It lights a fire in me to help that patient defeat the RSD, CRPS or whatever disease has caused this person to become immobile.” Dr. Cooney, one of 10 Certified providers of Calmare Therapy in the U.S., will generally recommend a treatment protocol of 10 daily therapy treatments, lasting 30 to 60 minutes each.

“Although Kim’s case was severe, she responded very successfully to treatment. After three treatments, she was walking again,” Dr. Cooney recalls with a smile. After treatment number eight, Kim was pain-free and her physical symptoms were diminishing just as quickly. Dr. Cooney says he didn’t feel any further treatments were needed at that time because she was without pain and for a sustained period of time.

The whole office was elated to see Kim walk out the door and head back home very differently than when she arrived. She was kind enough to make a video testimonial for Calmare NJ which we’ll share with you soon.

“The Doctors” to feature Calmare Therapy today

the_doctors_logoAt last, Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment is earning the national exposure it deserves to help get the word out!

Today’s episode will feature  TV entertainment program correspondent Jim Moret and his teenage son who has been battling Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS).  Mr. Moret has written and reported on his son’s medical condition for the past few years and their frustration with the medical community’s failure to discover a viable treatment protocol for him.

The feature on The Doctors will address the Moret’s family’s frustration in trying to find a treatment that will lessen or alleviate their son’s continual pain (he presents classic RSD / CRPS symptoms).

We can’t help people living with treatment-resistant neuropathy — as a result of RSD, CRPS, pain from chemotherapy treatment, post-surgical pain or diabetic neuropathy —  if they don’t know Calmare exists. This television program will, hopefully, have a strong impact on our ability to reach those who need us.
