Successfully Battling CRPS Pain During CRPS Awareness Month

November 11, 2019

CRPS Patient Nearly pain Free after Calmare Therapy
Erin and Dr. Cooney say goodbye after her successful scrambler therapy treatments.

A Facebook comment posted by Erin’s mother this morning:

“How can I thank you for giving us our daughter back?

Her treatments have completely changed her—body, mind, and spirit, Dr. Cooney!

I pray she remains in remission. This is nothing short of a miracle!!!”


Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) Awareness Month is recognized in November around the world.

I was particularly pleased that Erin’s arduous five-year battle with this notoriously difficult-to-treat condition was overcome after 10 treatments of Calmare scrambler therapy.

Erin, now 29, was diagnosed with CRPS after a surgical procedure in 2014. Since then, she has been living with chronic pain in her leg as high as 8 to 10 on the Pain Scale.

The Kentucky native tried countless pain medications, injections and even additional surgery, without significant pain relief.

Last Friday, after 10 Calmare treatments, her pain level was a consistent 1/10 for the first time in five years.

New Sciatica and Chronic Back Pain Treatment: Calmare Therapy

Calmare therapy treats chronic back pain and sciatica
Too many people suffer from medication and treatment-resistant chronic back pain and sciatica.

November 6, 2019

We all know of friends, family members and work colleagues who suffer from chronic back or sciatica pain.

They’ve tried all the drugs and therapies and still have pain.

In our pain management clinic, back pain is the number one affliction our patients face.

For those patients whose pain is nerve-focused, we are increasingly recommending Calmare Therapy, particularly for people battling chronic back pain for six months or longer.

Calmare uses biophysical “scrambler” technology, a treatment for nerve pain that uses electrodes placed on the skin through which low amounts of electricity scrambles the pain message from the brain so that it stops sending the pain signal.

Yes, in fact, it’s as simple as it sounds.

Most importantly, 75 percent of the chronic nerve pain patients we have treated here in New Jersey, have “significantly reduced–or even eliminated their neuropathic pain.”

How the Calmare MC-5A technology can significantly lessen treatment-resistant lumbar and sciatic neuropathy

Our device reduces sciatic and spinal neuropathy by creating an artificial neuron that retrains the brain by sending a ‘no-pain’ signal along the sciatic root to the brain.

It’s key to understand the distinction between

a sciatic/lumber neuritis and a sciatic/lumbar neuropathy.

The neuropathy (chronic pain) is constant; the pain may vary from low to high, but the discomfort never goes away completely.

This chronic, never-ending nerve pain is the root cause that scrambler therapy can relieve.

Conversely, a sciatic/lumbar neuritis is usually a structural or biomechanical problem, such as a pinched nerve or ligament damage.

These types of conditions should be treated by chiropractors or physical therapists who specialize in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.

Calmare Therapy can significantly reduce or even eliminate chronic back pain as a result of nerve damage.Via small electrodes strategically positioned by a specially-trained doctor, a ‘no-pain’ message is transmitted directly to the nerve for a period of approximately 35 minutes per session.

Regardless of severity, pain and physical symptoms caused by the neuropathic condition can be significantly reduced-or even alleviated-by the conclusion of the 10-treatment series.

The cause of chronic sciatica or back pain may be a result of injury, failed back surgery or generalized aging of bones and joints.

Double-Blind Clinical Study Finds Decreased Low Back Pain Following Calmare Therapy

For severe cases of neuropathic pain, subsequent Calmare booster treatments are sometimes, but not always, necessary for patients who have lived with the chronic pain condition for an extended period of time before undergoing Calmare Therapy treatment.

Calmare scrambler therapy benefits
  • Proven successful in the treatment of neuropathic pain by leading oncologic studies 
  • FDA-cleared 510(k)-cleared and European CE mark-certified
  • Pain-free
  • Non-invasive
  • Drug-free
  • No side effects

People with treatment and medication-resistant neuropathy describe their outcomes after Calmare Therapy

Will Calmare work for my back pain?

Calmare can lessen chronic pain in the back and sciatica

First, let us be perfectly clear—while this non-invasive therapy has been successful for more than 75 percent of our patients with chronic nerve pain, it does not significantly reduce or eliminate pain or everyone, unfortunately.

We have seen marked success (pain reduction or remission) for children, teens, adults and seniors battling these neuropathic pain conditions:

  • Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Neck Pain
  • Foot Pain
  • Failed Back Surgery Syndrome
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Chemotherapy associated Cancer Pain – CIPN
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome – CRPS
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Neuropathic Pain/Neuropathy – General
  • Phantom Limb Syndrome
  • Post Shingles Pain – PHN
  • Pudendal (Gynecologic) Pain

Calmare is a ‘provider dependent therapy. Is your doctor Calmare Certified?

When will my pain level start to decrease?

In most cases, we see by treatment 3-4 if a patient’s neuropathy will be significantly minimized or a pain-free state can be achieved. Many patients experience pain relief as early as 10 minutes into their first treatment session. As the number of treatment sessions increases, the duration of pain relief is prolonged.

What if my pain comes back?

Depending on the severity of the original condition and the length of time the patient has been experiencing chronic pain, periodic booster treatments may be required to combat any return of pain.

Is Calmare technology comparable to a TENS unit?

No. The Calmare® MC-5A device creates a low energy electrical impulse which travels through the patient’s nerves delivering a “no-pain” signal to the brain.

This scrambles (disrupts) the brain’s misfiring pain signal that the area of pain is normal and eventually results in prolonged pain relief.

TENS units are self-use devices that can temporarily lessen pain but when discontinued provide no lasting pain resolution.

What is a ‘Provider Dependent’ Therapy?

October 23, 2019

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

Calmare Certified Location Logo

The ultimate success of your Calmare Therapy depends on several variables.

In my opinion, other than being correctly pre-qualified as a patient candidate, the doctor administering the scrambler therapy will have a critical impact on your overall pain management success.

Therefore, your Calmare provider must have extensive expertisetraining and clinical skill to accurately diagnose the precise location of the original pain site/s and set the MC-5A Calmare technology accurately to support pain relief.

Four key Calmare provider responsibilities:

  1. Strategically positioning each of the scrambler therapy leads on the patient in accordance with the original injury and current pain regions
  2. Setting, overseeing and adjusting the device settings during each of the 10 treatments
  3. Managing and responding to ongoing patient feedback
  4. Monitoring day-by-day pain management levels based on patient input.

 I will be your Calmare provider, 100 percent of the time, from start to finish ─ no assistants, no support staff. 

The placement of the leads (patches), attached to each of the algorithms, as you can see below, must be precisely positioned in order to successfully alleviate the nerve pain.

If these leads are placed in the wrong area, this lessens the overall capability of the Calmare MC-5A technology to optimally perform its job of lowering your pain and lessening any related physical symptoms.

As a Calmare provider since 2011, I have treated more than 1,000 patients from around the world–successfully.

I have also served as an expert Trainer for new doctors introducing Calmare.

This is a responsibility I take very seriously.

What to look for in your Calmare provider

Clinical Director Dr. Michael Cooney places the scrambler therapy leads on a CRPS patient.

The most experienced Calmare Therapy providers have received a careful review and on-site examination by the company’s administrators, who may or may not designate the top providers as Calmare Certified.

I strongly encourage you to seek out these providers for your therapy.

Secondly, ask the provider you are considering how many patients they have treated with your specific chronic pain condition ─ back and neck pain, post-surgical pain, RSD / CRPS / fibromyalgia, pain after chemotherapy, diabetic neuropathy, etc.

Your Calmare technology will be most successful when your chosen provider has advanced expertise in the placement of each lead.

Finally, peruse the internet and read reviews about the provider you are considering.

Get firsthand information about what scrambler therapy is really like by connecting directly with our previous patients.

Speak with Our Calmare Therapy Clients

At Calmare NJ USA, we offer an exclusive program called the Patient-2-Patient program, where you can be in contact with one of our previous patients who has a similar medical condition to your own.

Who better to share their Calmare treatment experiences than our own patients?

Anyone choosing Calmare should ensure the treatment is performed by a healthcare professional specially-trained in the diagnosis and treatment of several types of advanced neuropathy.

As a friendly reminder, I am happy to speak with people living with treatment-resistant chronic pain anytime. Feel free to call my office at (201) 933-4440 or email us at info@calmaretherapynj.com.

Wishing you and your loved ones a low pain day.

Calmare Scrambler Therapy Featured in Alternative Pain Directory

October 1, 2019

Cindy Perlin and her team at the Alternative Pain Directory invited Dr. Cooney to share an article about the benefits of Calmare scrambler therapy, which you can read here:

New Nerve Pain Therapy: Fast, Safe, Powerful Relief
Excerpt:

Our nation desperately needs to evolve beyond the outdated notion that there is a pill to cure
everything, particularly in the case of acute and chronic pain management.

The majority of patients we treat with scrambler therapy come to us frustrated and exhausted after enduring months and years of searching for chronic pain relief. They have often resorted to unproven surgeries, experimental procedures or powerful prescription pain medications, leaving them mentally and physically debilitated by the drugs’ side effects, and still in pain.

Scrambler therapy is a unique approach to retraining the brain by correcting the misfiring pain
message.

There are no inherent risks to undergoing scrambler therapy. As I tell everyone who prepares to undergo the therapy, the only negative to this therapy is that it may not work for you, which happens in a small minority of cases.

We can tell within the first few sessions whether you are a good candidate.

It has no side effects, is not painful to undergo and is drug-free.”

We would love to tell you more about the potential pain relief you may experience by having Calmare Therapy.

Dr. Cooney speaks personally with every scrambler therapy candidate, as the therapy is not right for everyone.

Complete the eCard below and Dr. Cooney will reach out to you directly, or call our clinic located just outside New York City at 201-933-4440.

Mother and Daughter Travel to the US for Calmare Therapy

September, 2019

Megan and her mother took a chance and a plane ride from Canada for her to try Calmare after a difficult 4-year battle with CRPS.

In the video below, Megan describes the laundry list of therapies and pain medications she took before heading to the US to work with Dr. Michael Cooney, a leading provider of Calmare Therapy specializing in CRPS cases.

When she arrived in New Jersey during July 2019, Megan’s pain level was near a 10/10.

Meet two brave women on a mission.

To learn more about Megan’s battle, click here: https://calmaretherapynj.com/2019/07/23/a-5-star-review-from-a-calmare-patients-mother/

How to Learn More About Calmare Scrambler Therapy

We handle pain therapy a little differently than most pain management clinics.

We take a personal approach from day one.

If you or a loved one has tried pain medications and neuropathic pain treatments without success (reduction of pain and related physical symptoms), don’t give up hope.

The majority of chronic pain patients we help have been right where you are now.

First and foremost, we’d like to learn more about your nerve pain battle.

After you’ve reviewed our website and learned how Calmare works–and what type of medical conditions are appropriate for therapy, complete the eCard below, email us privately at info@calmaretherapynj.com or call our clinic at 201.933.4440 and we’ll put you directly in touch with our clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney, who personally speaks by phone with every potential patient.

THE FACTS

The truth of the matter is Calmare is not right for every patient who wishes to undergo scrambler therapy.

After your video or phone consultation, if Dr. Cooney does not determine scrambler therapy has a strong probability of significantly reducing or eliminating your chronic pain, he will not approve you for treatment.

But you never know until you reach out, have faith and continue your quest to win the war on pain.

Calmare Therapy: Overcoming Chronic Pain Side Effects

August 26, 2019

The video you are about to see below was filmed by Megan in her New Jersey hotel room during her stay at Calmare Therapy NJ USA in July 2019.

She filmed her ‘before and after’ Calmare scrambler therapy treatments on her own accord and was not paid or influenced by our pain management team to do so.

Background on Megan’s Long-Term Battle with CRPS

Megan came to Calmare Therapy NJ USA from Australia in 2016 after being severely debilitated by neuropathic pain symptoms as a result of a five-year battle with medication and treatment-resistant neuropathy.

“When I arrived in New Jersey, I was in a wheelchair, unable to walk, stand or sit unsupported. My speech was affected and I had a bad stutter and slur when attempted.

My cognitive function deteriorated until I could no longer follow even a basic conversation or have an understanding of what was going on around me,” Megan wrote after her therapy.

“I had a constant tremor throughout my body and violent twitches which resemble seizures. I was in constant pain in my joints and having burning headaches at the base of my skull and back of my head that would incapacitate me further.

I was unable to do any regular daily activities such as showering, dressing, food preparation etc.”

Megan’s family discovered Dr. Michael Cooney’s use of Calmare Therapy to overcome chronic pain and they made the Herculean trip from Australia to New Jersey USA to try the treatments.

Eleven Scrambler Therapy Treatments Later (2016)

“I started feeling some of the benefits of the Calmare treatment after the first week. My pain was steadily decreasing, my ability to walk short distances was improving, my cognitive function was increasing, I only had one headache in the whole two weeks I was in New Jersey and it was more easily relieved than ever before.”

14 Months After Scrambler Therapy

August 2017 | Australia

“I just wanted to share the news that I’m finally back on road at work as a Paramedic here in Australia! I wouldn’t have gotten this far if it wasn’t for your help and support and the magical Calmare, and I wanted to say Thank You.

You really did save my life as I was in a very dark place before coming to the USA. I don’t think I would have been able to keep pushing through each day if I hadn’t had the amazing level of improvement I gained from your therapy.

You all also gave my mother and I a level of emotional support we had never received before, and we will always be thankful for that too. It has still been a long and frustrating battle to get me back to a level of normality, but it’s been worth it. My family has finally been able to relax; my parents even went on a holiday! And I can finally start being in my 20’s instead of my 80’s! 😀”

Three Years After Calmare Therapy

In mid-2018, Megan’s chronic pain began to steadily increase again. When the pain threatened her neurological skills and her mobility was regressing, she took the 24-hour trek from Australia to undergo 10 Calmare treatments again.

The first 3-4 treatments did not result in any marked improvement, as you’ll see on the video Megan made from her hotel room.

Undeterred, Dr. Michael Cooney persisted.

With Megan’s tenacity in full swing, treatment number 5 resulted in a pain level decrease.

Every treatment thereafter resulted in marked improvement in Megan’s speech, finger extension and reduction in leg spasms.

Thank you, Megan, for candidly sharing your ‘before and after’ Calmare treatments. We are most grateful for your generosity.
