Dr. Cooney and Patient Interviewed for New CRPS Book

August 31, 2020

Clinical Director, Dr. Michael Cooney, who has successfully treated hundreds of people living with CRPS since 2011 using Calmare scrambler therapy, is featured in a new book on the topic:

COMPLEX REGIONAL PAIN SYNDROME (CRPS): PATIENTS’ PERSPECTIVE OF LIVING IN CHRONIC PAIN.

The book is co-written by pain management physician Dr. Alaa Abd-Elsayed and Eric M. Phillips, president of the International RSD Foundation.

Dr. Abd-Elsayed cited Dr. Michael Cooney and Calmare Therapy in his new book for sale on Amazon.
Dr. Alaa Abd-Elsayed

Dr. Abd-Elsayed is a noted chronic pain physician who has published more than 100 peer-reviewed manuscripts, presented more than 200 presentations on the national and international level, written dozens of book chapters and serves on the editorial board of several pain management medical journals. He is a longtime chronic pain advocate.

 

Thus far, the CRPS book is receiving positive reviews from readers, achieving nearly a 5-star rating:

“This is such a candid view of CRPS from the standpoint of many different people affected by this debilitating disease. So useful to see how other people have dealt with and managed this disease. Dr. Al and Eric did a wonderful job putting together this collaboration of patients trying to help others. If you or a family member have this disease, this book is a useful tool in understanding CRPS. Thank you to all of the authors in this book. Substantial Book.”

Calmare NJ USA Patient Outcome Cited

One of our teen patients, Austin, is featured. His parents describe his significant pain relief (and leg lesion healing) after Calmare Therapy and booster treatments:

We are grateful to Austin’s family, who volunteered to share their family’s story and Austin’s positive outcome after Calmare Therapy.

Austin did return months later for three scrambler therapy booster treatments, which may be necessary for more severe or prolonged cases of chronic nerve pain.

He shared an update from the mountains (where he was snowboarding!) in February 2019:

Austin and Dr. Michael Cooney celebrate his success after undergoing Calmare scrambler for CRPS.

“I was honored to be included in a truly comprehensive book about the challenges faced by so many courageous people around the world living with CRPS,” says Dr. Cooney.

“It is vitally important that sufferers understand that drugs and invasive procedures are not the only way to reduce pain from this disease.”

Emi Hewatt Heads Back to Australia After Successful CRPS Treatment

October 14, 2016

emi-hewatt-having-calmare-treatment-_10-16You may recall The Border Mail newspaper article which addressed Emi’s four-year battle with CRPS and her effort to raise funds to come to New Jersey, USA from Corryong, Australia to undergo Calmare Therapy, performed by Dr. Michael Cooney, our clinical director.

Emi’s medical history may sound familiar to some of you–

She had foot surgery in 2012 and the symptoms of CRPS began about a month after the operation. Her condition and pain region continued to expand from her lower extremities up the right side of her body.

Due to extreme sensitivity in her foot and leg, she eventually required the support of a wheelchair full-time. In addition, she has not been able to wear shoes on her feet for years.

After a year spent fundraising, Emi arrives in New Jersey

She arrived here two weeks ago, after the arduous 24-hour flight and we immediately began daily scrambler therapy treatments. Steadily, Emi began to experience a lessening of pain with each passing day along with improved mobility.

Emi responded after treatment #5 that she wanted to go shopping for a pair of shoes. Then she began walking without the need of her wheelchair.

We’ll let Emi share her outcome via her Facebook post after her final Calmare treatment:


“Well tonight is our last night here in the U.S., we fly home tomorrow. I ended up having another treatment yesterday and today. I only had a very very slight amount of pain but thought I would make the most of Calmare while I am here and I am glad I did! We NEED this Calmare treatment in Australia! It’s unbelievable how amazing it works. Before we came we were a bit sceptical and thought it was toogood to be true but after experiencing the amazing results for myself I can’t believe Australia is so behind.

I don’t want to leave! I want to stay here with Calmare NJ and the Calmare machine forever.

Thank you so much to Dr Cooney for giving me and many other CRPS suffers our lives back. You, Barb and Cathy are just beautiful!

The Purple Bucket Foundation are still working hard to get Calmare into Australia. We currently have a ‘my cause’ campaign going to get the machine registered with the Therapeutic Good Administration:  https://www.mycause.com.au/page/138433/bring-scrambler-to-australia

Can’t wait to get home and give everyone a big proper cuddle for the first time in 4 years!!

😘😘


A drug-free, alternative treatment for chronic pain, with no side effects

Considering the Herculean effort Emi and her family made to come to us for treatment, we hoped and prayed that she would achieve a successful outcome. (Scrambler therapy is not a panacea and does not work for everyone. Some patients have extenuating health issues beyond the chronic pain condition, some have been misdiagnosed and some disappointing outcomes are unexplained).

While we are filled to capacity this week, it’s going to be a little quiet around here now that Emi has headed back Down Under. But we are absolutely elated that she’s going home to enjoy a vastly improved quality of life, starting with the newfound ability to hug her loved ones again, without feeling any pain.
