The Calmare Connection Joins Two Women from Texas and Australia with RSD

November 13, 2015

BlackburnDianne came to us from Texas suffering from full-body RSD.

She was initially injured as a child and has been suffering with chronic pain for decades.

Despite her serious healthcare challenges, Dianne was able to earn her Registered Nurse (RN) degree while she experienced some remission.

But following back surgery in 2000, the RSD flared its ugly head yet again.

Over the years, Dianne underwent several different therapies and tried various prescribed medications to help lessen the pain.

A long history of unsuccessful neuropathic pain treatments

As most RSD patients can confirm, these efforts were unfortunately unsuccessful. Dianne had repeated nerve blocks, Ketamine, not-one-but-two spinal stimulators impanted, an implanted drug pump and used several powerful medications, to no avail.

Equally frustrating, the side effects from all the prescribed drugs opened the door to listlessness, weight gain, depression, too much sleep and/or insomnia.

But even while ensuring all these obstacles, with the support of her family, she didn’t give up looking for pain and symptom relief.

Using her own health and medical education expertise, she never stopped searching for new RSD treatments to help overcome her increasingly severe symptoms.

Two women worlds apart find common ground with chronic pain

From Texas, she connected online with our patient Michelle, who had a similar medical history, who had traveled from Australia to New Jersey for Calmare scrambler therapy RSD treatments and sustained an outstanding patient outcome.


Michelle shares her Calmare Therapy NJ story here:


Calmare Technology 2012After many texts and emails back and forth, Dianne and her husband decided to make the long 3,000 mile trip to New Jersey where she underwent ten 30-minute scrambler therapy treatments each day.

Steadily, her pain began to decrease and each day, the pain relief lasted for longer periods of time.

She told Dr. Cooney she really couldn’t describe what she felt as her pain began to diminish because it had been so long since she had experienced any relief.

An ‘astonished’ Texan finally achieves RSD pain relief

Earlier this week, Dianne completed her treatments and reported an “astonished” 0 pain level upon her departure. She also significantly reduced her medication needs.

Because of the long-term severity of her condition, Dianne may need to return periodically for booster treatments. We’ve advised her to take it easy, sleep at least 8-hours a night, do not  “do too much” each day, and slowly get back to enjoying her life again, which she so richly deserves.

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

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.
