  • life-changing treatment option
    Nov 18, 2014 | Kyle Valentine, DMD | Portland , OR
    Client's rating: 5 of 5
    I experienced the onset of muscle and nerve pain in my neck and back, made worse by long hours working as a general dentist. Eventually, my condition became so severe that I could no longer practice clinical dentistry. It became extremely discouraging to spend a great deal of money and valuable time on treatments and doctor visits hoping to find something to alleviate the pain. As a last resort, several expensive surgical options were recommended with less than ideal success rates. Fortunately, before I committed to surgery, my family physician recommended I treatment offered at Radiant Pain Relief Centres. I was cautiously optimistic after years of failed treatment, but I was offered a FREE initial treatment to see if the type of pain I experienced could be treated with the Radiant Pain Relief Centre’s technology. I loved the opportunity to try the treatment before investing additional time and money. The process was actually relaxing and best of all, I experienced 100%, true pain relief before the end of my first free treatment. My experience with the Calmare treatment was unique in that I finally experienced successful, sustained pain relief, allowing me to return to my day-to-day responsibilities. This was a game changer for me. I was able to avoid risky and expensive surgery, narcotic painkillers and weeks of recovery from a costly surgical procedure without knowing the outcome. It was an easy decision after experiencing a successful free treatment and one of the best decisions I've ever made. My sincere praise for the life-changing treatment option is given with complete confidence. My only regret is that I didn't have the opportunity to receive treatment five years ago, but then I may not have appreciated how incredible a simple, non-invasive treatment option could provide such profound success. It was definitely an experience unlike any other.

    That was the case with Karen - the pain was so severe she could barely walk.

    When she heard about the clinical trial at the Mayo, she signed up right away.

    Dr. Loprinzi says the Scrambler, which looks like a large car battery, is designed to break the pain cycle...

    SOT - Dr. Charles Loprinzi
    "You put electrodes on those nerves and you give them different electrical signals - and those different electrical signals kind of retrain the brain and say: 'Really, this isn't pain.'" (:08)

    That's easy for him to say - but she says it, too.

    The Scrambler therapy started working after the very first treatment - and after four treatments, the pain she had endured for more than a decade was gone...

    SOT - Karen Safranek
    "It was so incredible that I hadn't felt pain-free for so many years that I guess I didn't expect it to last..." (:10)

    But it's been a year now, and Karen is still pain-free.

    Sometimes, cancer patients treated with chemotherapy suffer severe and chronic pain that doesn't go away - even if the treatment succeeds and the cancer does go away.

    That's what happened to Karen Safranek...

    SOT - Karen Safranek, breast cancer survivor
    "On a scale of 1 to 10, it was like a 12. It was excruciating pain - like my feet and my legs were on fire. It's so hard to describe, because they felt so painful - yet they were numb." (:13)

    Enter a machine called "The Scrambler" now being tested at the Mayo Clinic.

    We'll tell you about it after this...

    The awful pain that breast cancer patient Karen Safranek suffered for years was caused by something called "peripheral neuropathy," says Dr. Charles Loprinzi of the Mayo Clinic...

    SOT - Dr. Charles Loprinzi, Mayo Clinic
    "It's a major problem from a number of chemotherapy drugs, probably the most prominent problem that we have these days. For some, it limits how much chemotherapy we can give. For some that get the chemotherapy, it gets better afterwards - but it stays there and can be a persistent problem for years." (:14)

    They are doing research. They don't offer it clinically yet. When that time comes I'm sure they will buy many machines.
