Sometimes the words of our patients are the only words needed:
“Many of you have been asking what CRPS is like, how I treated it and ultimately failed while doing so.
I wanted to create this video to show that there is HOPE amongst this terrible disease. I wouldn’t lie by sharing all of this information, I have friends who suffer with CRPS and I know the desperation.
I’m here to pass along some hope, an understanding that there IS something that works!
Allow me to set the stage–
Before I left for Calmare treatment with Dr. Michael Cooney in New Jersey, I was a new mother, nearly bedridden and unable to take care of my home and or life.
Today, I can truly see the other side of the rainbow.”
To schedule your no-fee phone consultation with Dr. Michael Cooney beginning in mid-June, email us at email@example.com, including your name, cellphone number and a little about your medical history, and we’ll promptly reply back with a few proposed dates and times.
You are also welcome to contact our pain management clinic at (201) 933-4440.
Our deepest thanks to Erin for sharing her heroic story and candidly sharing her medical history and successful Calmare Therapy outcome. We are forever grateful for your generosity and your candor.
Remarkably, it is non-invasive, drug-free, has no side effects and is painless to undergo.
Regardless of pain level and physical symptoms, neuropathic pain can be significantly reduced—or fully alleviated—after a series of 10 scrambler therapy treatments, performed once per day.
On behalf of Calmare Therapy NJ USA, we would like to thank Susan and the Spine Universe team for their continued support of medication-free, painless and non-invasive therapies that can free people in pain–without debilitating side effects.
Your support of our efforts is immeasurably appreciated.
As travel opportunities continue to reopen worldwide, we are now scheduling appointments for new patients and booster treatment appointments beginning mid-June-July 2021.
The Calmare team, including Dr. Michael Cooney, is fully vaccinated against Covid-19. We continue to support all the virus prevention guidelines recommended by the CDC.
We will continue to schedule one patient in the clinic at a time as a precautionary measure. Doing so does reduce the number of daily appointments, so please reach out promptly.
No fee phone consultations are required for all potential patients. We request that people interested in pursuing Calmare first learn more about the therapy on these web pages prior to scheduling your consultation.
When new/future patients have some basic understanding about how non-invasive scrambler therapy is performed–and how it can lessen or eliminate chronic pain–helps us focus our discussion more specifically on the exact nature of your neuropathy and understand your pain management goals after therapy.
Any essential reason for this consultation, which is held only with our clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney, is because Calmare is not right for everyone.
We will not treat patients for whom Dr. Cooney does not feel there is a high probability of pain reductionafter scrambler therapy treatments.
If you would like to schedule a new consultation or booster treatments, please complete the quick form below, and we’ll get back to you within 48 hours of receipt of your message. If you prefer to call our New Jersey clinic, please reach out at (201) 933-4440 between 10 am and 5 pm weekdays.
During the course of your life, you may experience chronic pain, which is generally described as consistent pain lasting for at least three months. The neuropathy may result from an injury; side effect from a chronic disease treatment for a condition, such as chemotherapy; or simply wear and tear on an aging body.
Regardless, choosing a pain management provider requires special preparation to find the right doctor to relieve your pain and achieve your desired outcome.
Unlike a broken arm or a case of shingles, neuropathy can’t be observed with the naked eye. Therefore, it is essential for the patient to be able to describe their pain, including the level of pain, based upon a verbal conversation.
Dependent on how long you have lived with long-term pain, it is important to clearly delineate your treatment goals—
Do you want to eliminate the need for prescription pain medications or invasive therapies?
Do you want to be completely pain-free, or would you be satisfied if your pain level remained under 3/10?
Do you want to alleviate a need for mobility devices?
Is your goal to return to work full-time or attend school?
Once you have stated your pain therapy goals, the next step is to determine if the doctor has the tools and mindset to lessen or eliminate your pain successfully.
Doctors who treat neuropathic pain generally specialize in a specific sub-specialty such as pediatrics, orthopedics, gastroenterology, psychiatry, neurology, geriatric care or rheumatology, for example.
I was a clinical chiropractor for 30+ years before administering Calmare scrambler therapy exclusively at my New Jersey clinic.
For me, working with the body’s central nervous system for three decades served as an essential skill in optimally placing the leads required for successful scrambler therapy outcomes.
With the explosion of opioid abuse over the past decade, just prescribing pain medications to people with chronic pain is no longer a long-term solution to managing pain for most people.
I have been a strong believer that medications are not usually required to overcome pain throughout my career.
Ask how frequently the doctor treats people with your specific medical condition/s and describe the overall success rate (pain elimination or significant reduction).
In our practice, we have a list of patient volunteers who are willing to speak with potential patients about their Calmare scrambler therapy treatment experiences.
Note: I’d like to thank our Calmare patients and chronic pain friends on Facebook who contributed their firsthand input to these questions below:
Do you regularly treat patients with my condition? If not, how many patients have you treated with my condition and what was the outcome for the majority?
What is your area of medical specialty in treating nerve pain?
Can you offer a typical outcome for patients with my condition and pain level?
What percentage of your patients experience a significant reduction in pain within six months?
For my condition, what are the most common treatment protocols you prescribe, starting with the least invasive?
Do you feel pain medication is the primary treatment plan for me? Why?
Do you support alternative pain therapies and, if so, can you describe them?
Based upon your expertise, what do you project my ‘best-case outcome may be?
Remember, the doctor works for you and is being paid to provide you with healthcare that will make you feel healthier, less pain and improve your quality of life. This is a tall order that will require a significant commitment.
Ensure that you are working with a care provider you believe is best suited to meet your needs and health goals.
Calmare scrambler therapy is not right for everyone experiencing neuropathic pain; after a clinical consultation (sometimes performed by phone for clients residing outside of our metro New York City geographic area and out of country patients), we will not recommend this therapy for you if Dr. Cooney does not feel there is a strong possibility for significant pain relief, elimination of pain, markedly improved mobility or a significant improvement in quality of life.
When someone whose life has been sidelined by chronic nerve pain finally achieves pain relief–or a pain-free state–the feeling we get is pure joy.
As I’ve stated over the years, most of the time, people with chronic pain arrive at our clinic feeling skeptical, exhausted, financially spent and almost numb to the possibility of finally winning the war against pain.
This week, Sharlene is undergoing her second week of treatment with us after carefully weighing her decision to trust us with her health while helping lessen her pain after a 30-year battle with arachnoiditis. This debilitating condition causes chronic shooting pain, the feeling of bugs crawling on the skin, weak legs and even neurological problems.
Better yet, we’ll let her tell it:
One of the many reasons Calmare Pain Therapy has changed the face of pain management is the fact that is can lessen, or in Shar’s case, eliminate neuropathy caused by various types of injury or diseases, like arachnoiditis, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), postherpetic neuralgia(PHN) after Shingles, fibromyalgia and light bruises to extensive surgery.
You won’t find needles, pain or a prescription drug list at Calmare Therapy, either.
This FDA-cleared alternative pain management therapy is non-invasive and has 0 side effects.
Yes, there are no side effects or pain when undergoing Calmare, other than you may be more tired for a period of time during and up to a month after treatment.
If you or a loved one feels that you are at the end of the line of pain management options, you are not.
Sharlene posted this Facebook message near the end of her 10 Calmare treatments and gave us permission to share it:
Reach out and let’s talk about your battle. You and I will speak directly and there is no consultation fee, of course.
Call our clinic, located outside New York City, at (201) 933-4440 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s start fighting back against your pain today, no more waiting for tomorrow.
Calmare scrambler therapy is an ideal pain management treatment for children battling chronic pain:
• No medication • Non-Invasive • Painless treatment • No side effects • FDA-cleared
Clinical Director Dr. Michael Cooney has been performing Calmare Therapy for children, teens, adults and seniors since 2011.
He is one of only seven Certified Calmare providers in the US and frequently acts as a trainer for new doctors introducing this alternative treatment to their pain management protocols.
To determine if Calmare might be right to help overcome your chronic nerve pain, call our New Jersey-based clinic at (201) 933-4440 or email us privately at email@example.com about your chronic pain condition.
Hearing from our previous patients months and years after their Calmare treatment is the gift that keeps on giving. It sustains us to keep looking forward with hope.
Last week, we heard from this young man’s mother, who brought him to us in 2012, as a 12-year-old boy, with treatment-resistant shoulder neuropathy.
This is a family of very bright people, who aggressively traveled to see the top pediatric pain management doctors and treatment centers in the US. Finally, a pain management clinic in the Midwest recommended they pursue an alternative pain treatment called Calmare Therapy , because it is non-invasive and has no side effects.
As you may know from our Patient Stories, we use non-invasive, drug-free scrambler therapy to treat adults as well.
The scrambler therapy device doesn’t just lessen or eliminate nerve pain. Dependent upon the cause of the neuropathy, physical symptoms can also be alleviated after undergoing the standard Calmare 10-treatment series, including:
Severe temperature fluctuations
Extreme sensitivity to touch
Healing of lesions and blisters
Neurological and cognitive challenges
Muscle weakness and reduced mobility
Ultimately, our goal is to retrain the patient’s brain and eliminate the misfiring ‘there is pain here‘ message to a ‘there is no pain here, so we will no longer need to send the pain message.’
If you have tried traditional pain medications, pain management and/or physical therapy for neuropathy and have been disappointed with the results, contact our New Jersey team, with 10 years of Calmare treatment expertise, led by clinical director, Dr. Michael J. Cooney.
This time of year, I become rather sentimental, thinking about the previous 11 months and what we accomplished. Certainly, this year has been one for the record books (and not in a good way).
Remarkably, even since the onset of Covid-19 in March, we still welcomed new patients battling treatment-resistant chronic pain, who were determined to reach outside the confines of traditional pain management options (pain medications and invasive procedures) and traveled from around the country to undergo Calmare Therapy.
Masked, treating only one patient at a time, with family and friends waiting in their cars, we fired up the MC-5A Calmare device, and went to war, fighting chronic nerve pain as a result of disease or injury.
I was shocked by how many patient success stories we have posted since we introduced this little-known painless treatment for neuropathy back in 2011.
I lost count, but we are closing in on nearly 100 first-person patient reviews; I hope you will watch a few patient review videos to learn more about how Calmare works, especially if you are considering treatment with us in 2021.
If we haven’t had an opportunity to speak directly about your chronic pain battle and mutually determine if Calmare might be right for you, please feel free to reach out to us at the clinic by calling (201) 933-4440 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are confirming new patients into May 2021 and hope you add you to our family of patients early next year.
As always, we will make every effort to accommodate patients traveling from outside the US.
2020 has been a rough year for all of us, but there are many better days up ahead on the horizon. I can see them. Until then, take good care.
We thought it would help to explain how a Calmare Therapy treatment is performed, so you can understand just how non-invasive the process is and be fully informed before you have your first session.
First, a quick recap about scrambler therapy and how it works–
Scrambler therapy uses a biophysical rather than a biochemical (medication) approach. A ‘no-pain’ message is transmitted to the nerve via surface electrodes applied to the skin in the region of the patient’s pain, but not directly on the pain region.
The perception of pain, being sent in error through the nerve by the misfiring brain message, is cancelled by the scrambler therapy device and replaced with a no-pain message.
How does this process feel?
With guidance from Dr. Michael Cooney, our clinical director and one of only seven Certified Calmare providers in the US, we’ve outlined the process for you below:
The scrambler therapy process at Calmare NJ USA
First and foremost, each patient has a lengthy phone, video or in-person consultation (Calmare NJ USA follows all CDC-recommended COVID-19 safety precautions and currently treats only one patient at a time in our clinic) with Dr. Cooney, where extensive medical history and previous treatment efforts (medications, therapies, surgeries, injections, etc.) are reviewed and discussed.
Dr. Cooney will also ask you about your pain management outcome goal–
Do you want to be 100 percent pain-free, or would a pain level around 2-3 be acceptable? Do you want to regain mobility, return to work or school or improve sleep quality?
Once the doctor makes the final determination that a potential patient is a suitable candidate to undergo Calmare Therapy, and the patient chooses to proceed with treatment, the first scrambler therapy will begin:
1. Dr. Cooney will use his 10 years of scrambler therapy clinical expertise, in accordance with each patient’s lab tests, medical history and patient input, to determine where to place up to 10 leads (chords that transmit a mild current) for optimal pain relief. Not to worry–leads and pads will never be placed directly on your pain site.
2. When the patient is comfortable, Dr. Cooney will set the MC-5A medical device to begin transmitting the low-level “no pain” signal, disseminated across several varying algorithms. This process, performed once per day for 10 days, is performed for about 35 minutes, in most cases. There is no pain during the treatment, other than a mild humming noise. You are welcome to rest, read or use a digital device during the session.
3. When the treatment is completed, Dr. Cooney will carefully remove each lead, and the patient is free to leave.
Between treatments, you may feel tired and sleep more than usual, which is suggested. Patients should limit the use of the affected pain site, if possible. For example, if the patient has chronic nerve pain in the legs, they should not take a sightseeing trip in Manhattan between treatments, even if they experience a significant pain reduction).
In addition, patients should stay continuously hydrated and focus on eating three healthy meals daily.
What is a “provider-dependent” treatment?
At Calmare Therapy NJ, every treatment is administered by certified Calmare provider and clinical director Dr. Michael J. Cooney.
That’s worth repeating–no assistant or staff person other than Dr. Cooney himself–will determine your pain treatment protocol, decide exactly where your leads/pads should be placed (extremely important) and the duration of each treatment.
Calmare patients do not have to live in fear of unpleasant side effects–there are none, other than perhaps feeling more sleepy than usual, which is a temporary experience.
If you are frustrated by failed pain management efforts, we invite you to consider an alternative therapy that has been cleared by the FDA and has changed the lives of countless people battling treatment-resistant neuropathy.
Whatever course of pain management you ultimately choose, we wish you every success and pray for your reduced pain level, today and every day.

“Thanks for all you do Dr. Cooney, not just for me, but for all of us. My RSD pain is still at 0, hands and feet still improving from CIPN. Did I mention I planted a garden and mowed the lawn today?”
“If you, or someone you know is experiencing pain from cancer, seriously, look into Calmare. I wouldn’t steer you the wrong way. Dr. Cooney knows what’s up! Dr Michael Cooney, you’re the main man in my book when it comes to Calmare Therapy.”
“A little over a year ago and still pain free! I ran for the first time last week! Thank you Dr. Cooney and Calmare NJ, you gave me my life back!”
“My doctor recommended a spinal cord stimulator as a last resort to help with my CRPS pain. But I researched Calmare and decided to go to Dr. Cooney in NJ for treatment. I had nothing to lose. Ten treatments later, I am going home at a 0 on the pain scale. I am overjoyed.”
Kansas City, MO
“Thanks to you guys, my own Christmas will be filled with joy and celebration as I embark on a new pain-free journey in 2015! Your admirable dedication to healing will always be an inspiration for me.”
“I am really feeling like I have a new lease on life. As strange as it may seem, it took some time to get used to having no pain!”
“Someone I knew who had the same condition recommended I go to NJ for scrambler treatment with Dr. Cooney for my CRPS. Arrived a skeptic..left in so much less pain.”
Mark Stomp (parent of patient)
“We chose Dr. Cooney because he has successfully treated so many people with CRPS. Also, his staff was very nice and inviting and his patients I spoke to had tremendous results. It has been 5 months since my daughter’s treatment and she is still pain free, symptom free, and taking no meds.”
“You just need to try this treatment because it may just give you back the life you enjoyed before CRPS stole it away.”
RSD / RND
“We will always remember and cherish your help in getting our daughter to where we can hug her again!! You are such a special man and healer. God Bless you and may He continue to use you to bring healing and compassion to others!”
