I was very pleased to see this national media report from reporter Ben Gruber at Reuters News Service about a doctor at Mayo Clinic who is achieving very positive cancer patient outcomes using Calmare scrambler therapy to treat post-treatment pain.
Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy is a common but extremely painful condition many cancer patients suffer from as a side effect after chemotherapy treatment. Finding successful pain management solutions to treat this debilitating pain have been particularly challenging.
But Dr. Charles L. Loprinzi, a highly regarded oncologist and professor at the Mayo Clinic, has been conducting clinical trials using scrambler therapy to help cancer patients for the past three years. Today, he’s sharing his positive findings with the national media about his success using the scrambler machine.
The majority of chronic pain patients we have seen here at Calmare Therapy NJ are being treated for severe chronic pain for additional neuropathic conditions — fibromyalgia, shingles, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and post-surgical pain.
The recovering cancer patients with CIPN we have treated to date have also experienced outstanding outcomes, however.
