It was my honor to guest post about Calmare Therapy on the very popular Facebook and website organization, “Surviving Chronic Pain,” a peer-to-peer support group for people suffering any form of chronic pain. They offer a 24-hour chat room where people can find support. Just launched in March of this year, their Facebook group already has a membership network of more than 2,500 members. My post is reposted below:

A little background about Calmare Therapy

First, thank you to Karen and her group leadership at Surviving Chronic Pain for inviting me to guest post. My life’s work has been to alleviate or greatly minimize people living in pain. A few years ago, we had some patients whom were unable to help using traditional therapy nor did they respond to medication. We decided to take action for a new, drug-free solution. After researching and experimenting with several types of non-invasive technologies designed to alleviate pain, we finally discovered Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment.

Once the machine was delivered to our office, we asked those treatment-resistant patients to come in and try Calmare, as an informal clinical trial. The results shocked us for a couple of reasons:

• The majority of patients who tried it (living with chronic pain conditions including post surgical pain, diabetic neuropathy, CRPS, RSD, chronic lower extremity pain) saw significant improvements in their pain by the third 45-minute treatment, some even sooner.

• By the end of the 10-treatment cycle, more than 50% of our patients no longer needed pain medication.

• Patients experienced no pain during the therapy and there were no side effects during or after treatment (except for some sleepiness).

To this day, we aren’t sure who was more excited by the results of our clinical trial – the patients or our staff!

Two years later, we have treated children, teens, adults and seniors from around the U.S., Europe and Africa. We are proud to be part of a national network of Calmare providers who are helping people in pain from coast to coast – and beyond.

In closing, my message is this ─ as frustrating and discouraging living in chronic pain can be, don’t give up finding a solution to improve your quality of life. Every patient’s medical condition and history is different. Therefore, what doesn’t work for him, may be just what your body needs. There are non-invasive alternative pain therapies that can work. If you are unable to look for possible solutions yourself, get support and help from family members and friends. (They love you and want to help you).
