He knows not his own strength who hath not met adversity.”

William Samuel Johnson

By Dr. Michael Cooney, Clinical Director

As we grapple with COVID-19’s siege on our lives and our health, I wanted to touch base and offer an update from New Jersey:

We are treating patients, new and those seeking booster treatments, on an individual basis, with no overlap from other patients in the office.

Immediately after a patient has received scrambler therapy, we use the next appointment time to thoroughly sanitize our treatment rooms and public spaces, from the front doorknob to the check-in desk and everywhere in between.

When possible, we ask that the patient’s family or friends do not enter the clinic, but wait in the car.

So far, so good.

For people who wish to re-schedule upcoming Calmare Therapy treatments, please reach out as quickly as possible to give us ample time to fill your slot.

Due to the additional time required to clean our clinic between patients, 50% fewer appointments are currently available.

I want to share some valuable content from our longtime friends and partners on dealing with the coronavirus while living with CRPS.

We encourage you to bookmark BN and check back for more of their specialized content.

Victoria, founder of Burning Nights, and her husband, visited our clinic for a wonderful visit in 2018.

Burning Nights CRPS founder, Victoria Abbott-Fleming, headquartered in the UK, battled CRPS after a car accident in 2003. She is now a global figurehead providing objective information and resources about CRPS.

She and her organization are also strong supporters of alternative pain management therapies, like Calmare scrambler therapy, to treat chronic nerve pain and the physical symptoms of complex regional pain syndrome.
