Chemotherapy is one of the most common (but powerful and often debilitating) treatments to combat several types of cancer. Thankfully, many patients survive as a result of this drug but thousands are left with chronic pain as a long-term side effect.
A new report states that a third of all cancer survivors experience long-term post-treatment pain after undergoing chemo:
Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment received its initial FDA clearance as a treatment specifically for chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy, or CIPN.
Mayo Clinic has been engaged in Calmare scrambler clinical trials for the past two years. The Massey Cancer Center at VCU has also been engaged in fruitful research.
You can find another clinical trial/research performed by doctors and researchers at the Paul Carbone Cancer Center at the University of Wisconsin here http://calmaretherapynj.com/clinical-trials-2/u-of-wisconsin-madison-cipn/
