Brigham Young University researchers recently offered this update during their
Calmare clinical trial, supported by MRI monitoring, on their clinical trial patient outcomes using scrambler therapy treatment.
Along with clinical trials at Johns Hopkins, the Mayo Clinic and other universities, BYU researchers are studying MRI scans to determine exactly how the MC-5A device is altering the pain message in the brain to lessen and even alleviate several chronic pain in people with drug and treatment resistant neuropathy.
BYU Trial patient Jennifer McLean said:
“It’s just kind of unbelievable dealing with it for so long and then not having the pain there. It’s really nice.” McLean said she feels something she’s not had for a long time: relief.
The constant excruciating, stabbing, pulsating neuropathy in her right hand and fingers is gradually diminishing because a new generation electrical stimulation device is sending another signal to her brain.
“It’s just been such a blessing to have some relief and to know there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel.”
BYU Trial patient Taylor Johnson reported:
Johnson said the pain was so bad he couldn’t stand on the leg. He suffered from this pain for nearly two years due to reflex neurovascular dystrophy. The disease sent pain signals to the brain even though there was no injury. After several treatments, the pain was gone and he was able to run, walk and do whatever activity he wanted.
BYU Trial patient Brock Roblin said after his Calmare treatments:
He had been suffering from intense pain for four years.
Like many others, Roblin had been through that endless loop of prescription medications, including a sleeping pill every night for two years, and the maximum dosage of an anti-convulsant drug. After several scrambler treatments, the burning sensation in the feet that would keep Brock awake at night disappeared. He was also no longer dependent on prescription drugs for pain.
Don’t give up your search for neuropathic pain relief
Calmare Therapy cannot help everyone living with neuropathy, unfortunately. But for people with many kinds of pain that does not respond to traditional therapy or medication, it has greatly improved lives.
