We jokingly call Laura from Indiana one of our Calmare Pioneers.
When Dr. Cooney began offering Calmare scrambler therapy in 2011, he intended to use it to help his existing medication and treatment-resistant patients.
But quickly, patients and their families battling neuropathy discovered his success using the MC-5A device to lessen or alleviate several types of treatment-resistant chronic nerve pain.
Laura, a newlywed and special needs school teacher, was severely debilitated by both fibromyalgia and RSD pain and related physical symptoms.
While she was undergoing RSD treatment at the Cleveland Clinic, she saw a post on Facebook by another RSD sufferer which changed her life.
“Amanda posted that Calmare had given her life back,” Laura recalls. “She wanted to shout to the rooftops to anyone living with chronic pain that there is something out there that truly works.”
Laura and her husband talked and agreed to halt the current treatment regimen and drove to New Jersey to meet with Dr. Michael J. Cooney.
Laura shares a message six years since her scrambler therapy
Today, Dr. Cooney was delighted to see this message on his Facebook timeline from Laura. (Don’t think Dr. Cooney will forget about you after your treatments are complete. He stays in touch with everyone in the ‘Calmare Family.’).
“Dr. Cooney, I saw an old post from 2011 on my ‘Memories for Today’ and of course I thought of you! The Cleveland Clinic ended up telling me that I was, “In denial about my condition. That I would never improve because RSD has no cure.” My prayers for remission were answered when I found you just a few months later! I’m forever grateful.
You have given me the gift of life without pain and it’s been full of joy again! ❤
Laura is one of those young women you wish you could clone, because she’s just a lovely person inside and out.
Thank you for taking a chance on Calmare, Laura, and we appreciate your unrelenting support since your treatment with us in 2011.
Wishing you every happiness, today and always.
