For patients with severe chronic pain conditions appropriate for Calmare Therapy, the standard treatment protocol is 10 consistent treatments over a two-week period. Most of the time, each treatment lasts from 30 minutes to an hour, but every patient is unique.
Depending on the severity of the original condition and the length of time the patient has been experiencing chronic pain, periodic booster treatments may be required to combat any post-treatment return of pain.
Keep in mind, many of our patients never need further therapy but in RSD / CRPS, Fibromyalgia cases, and other conditions resulting in long-term chronic pain, booster treatments can be extremely useful against any eventual elevation in pain.
How many booster treatments will I need?
The number of booster treatments required ranges from one to four treatments. Patients who experience a recurrence of pain should document when the pain returns and subsides and if any environmental issues were involved (stress, weather, overuse of the affected area) or if there was no specific cause for the elevation of pain.
