Calmare Therapy® (scrambler therapy) is an FDA-cleared alternative pain management therapy to lessen or reduce medication and treatment-resident chronic pain for children (age 10+), adolescents, adults and seniors.

Remarkably, it is non-invasive, drug-free, has no side effects and is painless to undergo.

Regardless of pain level and physical symptoms, neuropathic pain can be significantly reduced—or even alleviated—after a series of 10 scrambler therapy treatments, performed once per day.

How Does Calmare Relieve Chronic Pain?

Calmare uses scrambler therapy technology rather than medications, needles or invasive procedures.

A series of 10 painless treatments (one/daily for two weeks, lasting approx. 35 minutes each) is performed exclusively by Calmare Certified clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney at our pain management clinic in northern (Bergen County) New Jersey.

Using several small electrodes (think of a heart EKG) extending from the MC-5A scrambler therapy device, carefully placed in the region of the injury (but not directly at the pain center), the technology sends a continuous mild “no pain” message to the brain through the electrodes.

Essentially, the scrambler machine “overrides” the brain’s confused message and corrects it to a ‘there’s no pain here” message.
