We reported late last year that the U.S. Military was piloting Calmare Therapy as a new treatment for wounded soldiers at its largest hospitals in the world. To their credit, the Military was one of the first to get on-board with the MC-5A scrambler therapy as a means to alleviate severe pain without the use of invasive treatments or drugs.
Today, the U.S. Military is one of the largest providers of Calmare Therapy in the world. The Calmare device is offered and available at medical centers and hospitals in all branches of service. Military providers use Calmare to treat several conditions including:
- failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS);
- sciatic and lumbar pain
- phantom limb syndrome
- pudendal pain
- post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN)
- post-surgical neuropathic pain
- brachial plexus neuropathy
- lower back pain (LBP)
- complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS or RSD)
- cancer-related pain.
The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this week that Calmare was selected as one of the pain care training providers to our nation’s military personnel. The FDA-cleared, 510-K cleared and CE-marked medical device was highlighted as a “promising pain management device of choice”.
