For patients with diagnosed chronic nerve pain conditions appropriate for Calmare Therapy, the standard treatment protocol is one daily treatment for 10 days.
Depending on the severity of the original condition, and the length of time the patient lived with chronic pain, periodic booster treatments may be required to combat any return of pain.
Keep in mind, many of our patients never need further therapy but in RSD / CRPS cases, and other conditions resulting in prolonged and severe chronic pain, ‘boosters’ can be extremely useful against any eventual elevation in pain.
Danielle – Teen CRPS
Over time, her pain level slowly increased. Rather than wait for the pain to take over again, Danielle and her mother, a registered nurse, returned to the clinic last week to have four booster treatments.
She left us on Friday pain-free again.

Catherine Miller – Fibromyalgia
Catherine, a 50-something professional who works at a local university in Pennsylvania, had no success getting pain relief for her diagnosed fibromyalgia. But it certainly wasn’t for a lack of trying. After years of doctor and hospital visits, medications, steroids, epidurals and physical therapy, she was still in the same degree of pain.
She heard about our work treating fibromyalgia (FMS) and underwent the 10-treatment series in 2016. (Read her full story here).
When her pain levels also crept back, she came in last week for five booster treatments (one per day).
On Friday, she posted on our Facebook timeline:
Calmare NJ did it again! Five booster treatments 8 1/2 months after my first time is getting my neuropathic / neuralgia pain and fibromyalgia back under control once again. Thank you Calmare!
How many booster treatments will I need?
The number of booster treatments required ranges from a single session to five or more treatments.
Calmare patients who experience a recurrence of pain should document when the pain returns, subsides and what environmental issues were involved (stress, weather conditions, excessive use of the affected area) or if there was no specific cause for the elevation of pain.
Over time, the need for booster treatments may become less frequent and fewer treatments may be needed.
Have medications and invasive treatments still left you in pain?
