“Pain is rampant among veterans. Nearly 60 percent of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans are afflicted by chronic pain, as are more than 50 percent of older veterans. Many have returned home with battlefield injuries, but even more suffer back ailments, nerve damage, headaches, and other forms of severe pain that come with age and inadequate treatment.”
Since Calmare scrambler therapy was introduced in the United States, the Veteran’s Administration was one of the first healthcare organizations to purchase MC-5A devices and try the drug-free therapy to lessen several types of chronic pain.
Today, Calmare is offered at several VA hospitals worldwide and is also a covered treatment, enabling veterans to obtain scrambler therapy at any provider, including Calmare Therapy NJ USA, (with a referral from a VA-affiliated doctor).
This week, the Boston Globe published a terrific article highlighting that the VA is aggressively adopting alternative medicine alternatives to battle pain instead of opioids.
While we were disappointed not to see Calmare featured (CPT Code 0278T), we were pleased to see recognition of the VA’s effort to treat neuropathy without opioids.
Whether you are a veteran–or one of millions living with chronic pain because traditional pain management or prescription medications simply did not work for you–we hope you will reach out to learn more about our new pain management alternative.
Calmare has no side effects, the treatments are painless
and there are no medications or invasive procedures required.
Most importantly, do not give up hope. There is a cure for your pain.
