Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment® ( also called scrambler therapy) is a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical solution for pain control and drug resistant pain. It uses biophysical “scrambler” technology, a type of treatment for nerve pain that uses electrodes placed on the skin.
Via small electrodes (see left), a ‘no-pain’ message is transmitted directly to the nerve for a period of approximately 35 minutes per session.
Regardless of severity, pain symptoms can significantly reduce or alleviate pain and physical symptoms once the 10-treatment series is completed.
Pain may be a result of chronic conditions including injury, cancer and chemotherapy, diabetic pain, lower back pain, chronic neck pain, post surgical pain, failed back surgery syndrome, phantom limb syndrome, RSD, fibromyalgia, radiating pain and neuropathy.
For severe cases, subsequent booster treatments (one to three generally) are sometimes, but not always, necessary for patients with severe conditions or who have lived with the chronic pain condition for a long period of time before undergoing Calmare Therapy treatment.
Why Calmare scrambler therapy is revolutionary in the treatment of pain:
It has been proven successful in the treatment of pain by leading oncologic studies.
- FDA-cleared 510(k)-cleared and European CE mark-certified
- Pain free
- No side effects
History and Development:
The MC-5A medical device was developed by Professor Giuseppe Marineo, a researcher and bioengineer and the founder and manager of Delta Research & Development. Delta R&D is the Bioengineering Research Center affiliated with Tor Vergata University in Rome. “Calmare” in Italian means “to soothe or ease.”
About Dr. Michael Cooney, clinical director, Calmare Therapy NJ
Since 2010, Dr. Cooney has personally treated hundreds of patients from around the U.S. and around the globe with treatment and medication-resistant severe neuropathy.
He specializes in helping people battling Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD).
He was also one of the first doctors to successfully help patients with pain and symptoms from shingles or Postherpetic Neuropathy (PHN).
Today, there are only 10 doctors in the United States who are certified Calmare Therapy providers, including Dr. Cooney, who has also acted as a consultant for new doctors introducing scrambler therapy in their own practices.
How does it work?
Patients are comfortably connected to the Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment® device via small electrodes (similar to those used in EKG and other medical procedures) placed on the patient’s skin at the pain site/s.
The device then sends a very low current of electrical stimulation through the skin and nerve fibers, which carries a “no pain” signal to the brain, essentially overriding the previous pain signal.
In some cases, pain relief has been reported after the first treatment, but each patient’s case is unique.
During the 35-minute daily treatments over a two-week period, the patient’s pain steadily decreases to allow the patient to resume normal daily activities and enjoy a rich quality of life that had previously been eroded by living with chronic pain.
