Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a form of chronic pain that typically affects a leg or an arm. CRPS can develop after a surgery, an injury, a heart attack or a stroke.
Classic symptoms include pain that feels out of proportion to the initial injury’s severity, which may be throbbing or burning pain, usually in the extremity, sensitivity to cold or to touch, swelling of the area of pain, changes in skin texture and color, changes in growth of nails and hair, joint stiffness, damage and swelling, muscle tremors, spasms, loss and weakness (atrophy), and a reduced ability to move the body part that is affected. CRPS may occasionally spread from the original source to elsewhere in your body, such as the opposite limb.
Many patients who sought Calmare Scrambler therapy for CRPS in Calmare Maryland, said that it was their ‘last hope’ after a myriad of treatments they had previously tried. To our immense joy, we have achieved many successful outcomes for these patients, some of whom arrived to our clinic reliant upon wheelchairs.
Reflecting back, one of the reasons for our ability to help CRPS patients may lie in our extensive experience and intimate knowledge of the relationship between muscles, nerves, bones and joints, enabling us to administer the optimal placement of the Calmare device leads, leading to the optimal outcome.
How Does Calmare Scrambler Therapy Work for CRPS?
Calmare Scrambler Therapy is unique in that it is not using a biochemical approach (drugs), but rather a biophysical one (is relying on physical methods). Calmare device relieves pain by using small electrodes directly on the pain site for about half an hour, with 16 algorithms transmitting a ‘non-pain’ message to the nerve.
During the course of the treatment, patient’s brain receives the message that the pain site no longer emits pain signals, which results in the patient experiencing a steady decrease of pain. The number of treatments needed to achieve pain relief varies from patient to patient, but in some cases only a few treatments were needed.
