This place is a place of healing, both physically and emotionally from diseases that many other doctors have given up on, told us patients that we were “hopeless cases”. The doctors and staff are dedicated, gifted, compassionate and like a second family! I had given up before finding this place after a long 8 year battle with CRPS and it has given me hope back. I have seen many people heal completely and get much better from the treatments here. I believe anyone would be lucky to be a patient here! The atmosphere of the “clinic” isn’t clinical at all but more of a family living room, where patients are laughing, crying, supporting and talking with one another. There is no place like it anywhere! -- Laura D
This place is amazing! For the first time since I don't remember when, I am not in pain. The people here are incredibly friendly and genuinely care about your health and wellbeing. On top of all of that, they are priced very reasonably.
I love the comprehensive care you get with 3 different doctors with slightly different specialties.
Given me back hope after things looked pretty bleak. Rare migraine condition involving the trochlea of my eye. I travel from MN. I still have a ways to go in treatment. But it was a turning point. Very Genuine, caring people.
While I was not a patient here, one of your patients in a FB support group kept posting about his rehab updates! Just as I was -- again -- without hope and in full despair, I saw his updates. Seeing your videos, reading the reviews here, gave me hope again to continue my search for a cure for CRPS. After 6 years, my CRPS is in remission, and my physical therapist declared I can claim I am cured and can begin living and enjoying life again!!! Thank you for the hope you offer, even to people who are not at your clinic, but are reading your updates!! There really is hope, and there really is a cure!!!
Dr. Katinka and her staff always have my best interest at heart <3.
I will remember doctor Katinka my lifelong as a doctor who gave my life back. For me she is a unique healthgiver that had the courage, the passion and the skills to find (also sharing and searching further) a new protocol for chronic CRPS, a very complex condition. This condition is for many healthgivers not treatable. I came, really hopeless, after having crps for 5,5 years. I gave doctor Katinka the time, my trust and my co-operation to find the best personal way to heal me. And yes, I did (and I saw with my own eyes that so many other patients did): after only ten weeks, I took the plane back to built up the first stone of my adult life. No wheelchair or crutches anymore. A miracle was happened. I run, bike, swim, climb,.. Doctor Katinka choosed her team wisely what makes the center is whithout any doubt a place of professionality, passion and positivity.
There aren’t enough superlatives to describe the professional and compassionate care I am receiving here. Most days I am pain free, and no drugs are used, only natural healing techniques. I only wish I had found this clinic sooner. I have every confidence I willl leave the program with my CRPS in remission. The other patients are incredibly supportive and compassionate. No one suffers alone. This creates an incredibly positive, healing environment, unlike any you will find anywhere. Before I came, I had no hope of remission. Having hope and being pain free are priceless gifts. I will be forever grateful to the doctors and all the clinic staff members for helping me heal. -- Linda B
Transformed my life is so many ways.
I came to This clinic from Sweden after I have been suffering from Full body CRPS on the Right side that started to more and more take over my left side of my body too. I was so sick, weak and in so much pain when I came here. I have tried many different treatments before that diden't help me at all inkl. Different kind of Nerve blocks, medications to cope with the pain, physical therapy etc. My Untreated properly CRPS was eating me alive from the inside and totally broke my body to the point I was barely living just painfully existing. I was dying from neurological pain, my body and organs was deteriorating and shutting down and I was barely even able to walk few steps. Before I came here I was literally daying from pain, and I was getting worse and no one could help me or treat my severe condition. I was bedridden for 5 years, having atrophy of every muscle on the right side of my body, I could barely walk, sit up straight or lay down in bed without extreme pain and muscle spasms. But my life changed for the better when I meet Dr. Katinka Van Der Merwe and I began treatment for my neurological disfunction at her clinic The Neurologic Pain Relief Center. With Dr. K's treatments at the clinic my dying body started to wake up to life again, My body started to responding positively for the first time in 5 years when I began treatment here, I feelt it was a dream and that was the beginning of my journey of healing from the inside out ! Since I started treatments at Dr. Katinkas clinic, I'm getting better and stronger, my pain is going down, my mobility and range of motion and function of my arm, leg and my whole body on the right side incl. walking and my balance has improved a lot! My life has already totally changed! I have got my independence back and starting to getting my Life and Health Back! I was heavily medicated before I came here, Now My pain is going down, I'm medication free, I don't need to use a sling for my arm that I have used for 5 years thanks to Dr. Katinkas Vagus Nerve Adjustments and with the treatments at the clinic my pain is staying low longer and longer! I have never seen more Dedicated, Compassionate, Passionate, Genius Doctor in my life as I have experience being treated by Dr. Katinka! She and her staff are simply amazing, compassionet, understanding and are fighting for you 100 % everyday at the clinic to make you better. They have done that from me from day One at the clinic! This clinic and Dr. Katinka gave me my Life and Health Back, gave Me Hope of Healing and getting better which I haven't got anywhere else. This clinic gave me physical and emotional healing as well, this clinic is special from the doctors and staff that work here to the patients and the amazing warm atmosphere that is present between the patients and the staff in the clinic and in the waiting room. This clinic the staff here and the patients have become like my second family here in Arkansas, and there is no place like this clinic in the world! Leading words of this clinic is Peace, Love, Understanding, Hope, Faith, Compassion, Dedication! I highly recommend this clinic to CRPS sufferers and people with Neurologic Dysfunction, they do Miracles here for all their patients I have seen healing of other patients and including my own, I couldn't have be where I'm today in my recovery without the hard work of Dr. Katinka and here staff! Thank You Dr. Katinka, and the whole staff at The Neurologic Relief Center for helping me getting me on track to get my life and health back and for your encouragement and support when I was at my lowest! !! Dr. Katinka you will always have a special place in My Heart for everything You have done for me and for not Giving up on me, when my road of recovery was rough! I will eternally be greatful! Thank You! I'm Looking forward to Ring the Bell hopefully soon! I'm So Grateful for Everything! This is Truly a Place of Hope and Healing! � With Love, Louise.
I came here in a wheelchair/crutches. I tried everything else available with no success. I am on week 7 and am in little to no pain, have no need for my old wheelchair or crutches- I walk everywhere and have even started to jog slowly! This place seems too good to be true- but it is all real. The good reviews and testimonials are all true. I liquidated my retirement account and other assets to get here, along with a go fund me account- and it was worth everything I have. I would do it all again- it is worth everything I have to become healthy again for my family and for me! I have life in my body again and can experience life like I couldn’t for a very long time. Thank you a million times to everyone at the Neurologic Relief Center.�

These people care ... and “the process” works. If you, or a loved one, has CRPS, then you have been told nothing can help. Not true, once you start the process here. Watch the videos, and believe, and HOPE. We are here, and are meeting live, in the waiting room, with those patients in the videos, so we can confirm their validity. Human nature can be both skeptical, and sadly, cynical - especially when it comes to the many failed “treatments” for CRPS. But we can validate that these multiple modalities at the NRC work - not just masking the symptoms, but allowing the body to heal, from the inside out. No one can adequately describe what happens here, and even the magic of the waiting room - as 15-18 CRPS patients interact on any particular day ... you have to experience it for yourself. Take a leap of faith, based on actual stories of relief and hope. The difference with this place is: treating the CAUSE, vs the symptoms. After having this CRPS beast for 12 years, we have quite literally “tried every treatment”, to just mask the pain symptoms, with zero success. But we have now seen our “break through”, and are trusting the process to complete the healing journey. Please reach out to me if you would like to ask any questions or speak to a patient/caregiver who is actually being treated here.
Kind, compassionate, understanding and caring are just a few of the adjectives I would use to describe the very special staff at this center. You can expect a doctor that will think outside the box to help you heal. You can expect innovative treatments for a disease that nobody seems to be able to cure or put a patient into remission for without the use of implantable devices and/or large amounts and numbers of medications and pain killers. We have been to many specialty hospitals and clinics to help my daughter, who has had CRPS for 2 years, and haven’t seen the results that we’ve seen here. We will never be able to thank Dr. Katinka (and her staff) enough for the tenacity, dedication and ability to help us, give us hope again. Looking forward to ringing the bell in the coming weeks!
When my daughter, Kailyn, was diagnosed with Crps we tried a lot of things recommended by her doctors, as well as Ketamine treatments. They didn’t help and she only continued to get worse. It started from an injury to her left arm and by the time she started the clinic approx 10 months after being diagnosed, she had full body crps. She lived at a 9 or 10 pain level and could barely move her left arm. It took a while at the clinic and she had to work hard and stay determined, but she is now at a 0 pain level and has full function back in her left arm!!! It is heartbreaking to watch helplessly while someone you love so much suffers with an unbearable pain. I am so incredibly thankful for The Neurologic Relief Center, Dr K and her awesome staff!!! They gave my daughter the ability to fight and beat crps!!
Dr. Katinka and staff are the most compassionate, kind and caring individuals I have ever worked with in the medical profession. Their knowledge and experience are exceptional and this is the only place in the country that has helped my son with the chronic nerve pain that was ruining his life. He is on the way to “living” again and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the results.
This place literally saved my daughters life. She was diagnosed with EDS 3 years ago.. we had been everywhere to try to help her get relief from her immense chronic pain with no results except more medication and “coping skills”. 10 weeks here and she is pain free and back to being a kid! Beyond blessed to have found this place and forever grateful!
I have my life back. Before coming to the clinic I was in a wheelchair. I stopped all Activity and working. I was in so much pain that I mentally and physically could not function. I was on so much medication that I could not function. I spent 10 amazing weeks with Dr. K and her well blessed staff and now I am medication free, back to hiking, swimming and back at full time work. I have my life back!!
Dr. Katinka saved me from a lifetime of chronic pain. Her use of Neurological Relief Techniques and Quantum Neurology helped me go from just barely existing to a productive life again. It was definitely not an easy road, but worth every challenge and struggle I went through. Today I still have Fibromyalgia, but I have so few flairs (no more than 1 a month) that I can say I'm living my life and not just existing year after year. I joined her staff five months after starting treatments, so I have a unique perspective that I share with every patient I interact with. If I could say only one thing about Dr. K it would be that she works with each and every patient with compassion and understanding.
There are no words to describe this unique place, after 5 years of bad and so arrogant doctors, this place is a true paradise of knowledge, love and compassion. My wife feels now much better. I would recommend it for anybody with CRPS.
This place is just amazing. My pain has gone from 5-8 to 0-3 in five weeks. Im stronger then I have been in 10 years. Everybody is so proffesional and friendly. Can't wait to see what the next five weeks can do for me�.
You give hope to so many people who suffer, I rate you guys based on the videos I have seen and articles I have read. I hope to travel to you all soon, so I don't have to suffer anymore. I have CRPS, recently diagnosed in January of 2017.
This is a most compassionate and caring place i have ever seen!
I've only finished my first week of treatment and I'm seeing incredible pain relief! Dr. Katinka and every single person who works at the clinic has been kind, warm, and completely welcoming. I'm excited for the rest of my journey with them! -Melissa
Very amazing staff and good care msg me for any questions
Dr. Katinka and the staff are just so joyful and always helping in any way they can! Before I went to Dr. Katinka I laid in bed for 2 1/2 years and I got some relief here and there from ketamine. I have been with Dr. Katinka since the week before Christmas and I started back January 2nd - June 1st and I now have legs at no higher than a 3! Im back again to get my upper body like my lower body so I can pursue in going to medical school! I wouldn't be where I am today if it were not for all of the staff at The Neurologic Relief Center!
In the 24 years I have had CRPS I have not met a more compassionate staff. Dr Katinka and and staff have me in the least amount of pain that I can ever remember. I am beginning my 8th week of treatment and I have no doubt I will leave in remission. I was in a wheelchair when I got here and now I can run. My body is actually healing when every treatment before was a bandaid.
After seeking medical help, four MRI's and five doctors later trying to help me, Tera Clark(friend) referred me to Dr. Katinka November 2016. Dr. Katinka's treatments have helped me with relief of low back pain, hip pain, foot pain and sciatica type symptoms. I can take walks again! My foot pain is 0 to .5 and the numbness is gone. That's a big deal! Thank you Dr. Katinka and thanks to your team!
