Dr. Cooney and his success treating several types of chronic nerve pain (chronic pain) is included in a lengthy article in NJ Monthly magazine, “As Addiction Rises, Doctors Seek Pain-Relieving Alternatives to Opioids”.
“We think there’s a hypersensitivity that develops within the pain center of the brain in some people,” says Dr. Michael Cooney, one of fewer than 10 Certified providers of Calmare Therapy nationwide. “Scrambler therapy uses painless electrodes to move “a no-pain signal” out of the area of pain in order to “reboot” the brain, so that it’s no longer sending any pain signal.”
Marilyn Green, a patient who underwent the therapy after refusing to fill opioid prescriptions offered by her pain management physician, was interviewed for the article. She experienced debilitating post-surgical foot pain that eventually left her wheelchair-bound.
““When I went to see Dr. Cooney, my pain level was at nine and I could not walk,” she says. “On day five of the 10 Calmare treatments, it was already down to zero.”
