I read an exciting article in ARS Technica, “Scientists come up with neural mechanism—and possible fix—for chronic pain” which certainly spoke to me and our Calmare team since researchers at the New York University School of Medicine determined that chronic pain may, in fact, be all in your head.
Their study confirmed and explained why the Calmare device is able to produce very significant chronic pain relief even to patients who have previously undergone medication and other therapeutic efforts.
Nerve damage can confuse the brain’s pain signals
Scientists identified and confirmed that a circuit in the central pain-processing region of the brain causes hyperactive pain signals. It seems the nerve damage deactivates the somatostatin (SOM) interneurons whose responsibility is to diminish pain-firing signals.
By alternating the SOM, we can reduce or eliminate the pain messaging.
We believe this study is a breakthrough and explains why Calmare scrambler therapy is successful, when medications and other more invasive treatments fail.
The application of the 16 distinct algorithms from the Calmare MC-5A device in activating sequences stimulates the brain by sending a “no-pain here” signal and thereby “calming” (Calmare means ‘calming’ in Italian) the interneurons which are hyperactive.
Calmare convinces the brain to stop sending pain signals
Calmare has been effective treating several types of neuropathic (chronic) pain; this type of comprehensive study may be the long-awaited first step in explaining the reason for it.
Could Calmare Be the Solution to Your Treatment-Resistant Neuropathy?
I am proud to be one of only six Calmare-Certified providers in the U.S. I have successfully treated (you will never undergo a treatment performed by any other staff member) hundreds of patients since we introduced this revolutionary, FDA-cleared pain relief device in 2011.
If you have undergone medication and other neuropathic pain therapies, but are still in significant pain, we would be happy to speak with you about your chronic nerve pain.
