Medical Professional Finally Finds Pain Relief from Full Body CRPS

September 22, 2016
tish_1_9-22-16Tisha, a 30-something respiratory therapist from Vermont, was injured in an auto accident in January 2015 and eventually diagnosed with full body CRPS.

As a medical professional at a large regional medical center, she had access to all the pain management, cutting-edge pain medications and therapeutic treatments available where she aggressively sought pain relief.

She used a myriad of prescribed pain medications, underwent repeated nerve blocks and ongoing physical therapy.

Unfortunately, her CRPS pain was still relentless.

When prescribed medications and traditional pain treatments don’t work

Having exhausted traditional pain management solutions, Tisha researched alternative neuropathic pain therapies and discovered Calmare Therapy NJ during an internet search for “new treatments for CRPS.”

After speaking directly with clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney about her medical history, previous CRPS treatment efforts and current medication usage, they mutually agreed that scrambler therapy was a viable treatment option for her case.

When Tisha arrived in New Jersey, her pain level varied from a minimum of 6 up to 10/10.

She began the 10-treatment regime on Tuesday, September 6, but pain resolution was not immediate. Because Dr. Cooney is a doctor of chiropractic, he diagnosed that Tisha had sustained a slight derangement of the tibia/ fibula and femur junction, as a result of the car accident.

Thankfully, he as able to reduce the derangement through chiropractic manipulation. After this chiropractic procedure was performed, her overall pain began to diminish steadily.

Ensure that your Calmare Therapy provider is “Calmare Certified”

“Calmare is a ‘provider dependent therapy’ which means the patient is reliant upon the expertise of the provider to place the leads in the optimal positions to achieve the most positive outcome,” says Dr. Cooney, one of six “Calmare Certified” providers in the U.S.

At the conclusion of the treatment cycle, Tisha returned to New England with a pain level of 1 / 10 for the first time in nearly 18 months.

Are you battling CRPS or RSD?

Dr. Cooney and his friendly and professional team would be happy to talk with you about your battle and determine if scrambler therapy might be a suitable treatment for you. Call us at 201-933-4400, email us at CalmareNJ@gmail.com or complete the eCard below:

Cleveland Clinic Continues Calmare Therapy Pediatric Clinical Trials

cleveland-clinicWhen you are providing an “alternative therapy,” there are always additional challenges in trying to successfully relay the merits of the treatment.

Calmare Therapy is no different. While it has been cleared by the FDA, there are still naysayers.

One of the things we do is to promote the ongoing clinical trials by our country’s most esteemed research hospitals, such as the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins and Massey Cancer Institute.

A new Calmare patient, treating with us for CRPS pain and symptom relief, shared this article from the Cleveland Clinic, which highlights a variety of alternative treatments they recommend to help people battling RSD  / CRPS.

He explained that he first heard about Calmare from this article, published in 2014, which eventually led him to Calmare Therapy NJ USA.

The article noted:

Calmare® Pain Therapy and Experimental Therapies

Michael_Stanton-Hicks, MD:

Calmare® Pain Therapy could be effective in reducing your symptoms.  At the present time, Cleveland Clinic Department of Pediatric Rehabilitation is trialing Calmare® under experimental review. The FDA is overseeing these investigations.

As you know from many of our patient testimonials from parents and their children, we have been able to lessen the pain from CRPS for many pediatric and adult patients using Calmare Therapy.

Calmare Booster Treatments Explained
Calmare Technology 2012
The MC-5A Calmare device is FDA-cleared and earned a U.S. Patent as a unique device in 2013.

Depending on:

1) the severity of the RSD / CRPS condition;

2) length of time the patient has been diagnosed with reflex sympathetic dystrophy or complex regional pain syndrome;

subsequent Calmare booster treatments (as few as one treatment) may be necessary, if the pain level begins to rise.

From our clinical experience, over time, the frequency and number of booster treatments necessary should decrease over time for most patients.

Where do you start?

At Calmare Therapy NJ USA,  the first thing for a potential patient to do is to pour a cup of tea and look at every page of our website. You’ll learn how our treatment works, the types of neuropathic pain we treat, and why having your therapy with us will be unique from other providers here in the U.S. and around the world.

Best of all, you will have a live, one-on-one conversation directly with our clinical director, Dr. Michael J. Cooney, who has championed Calmare as a superior treatment option for CRPS and RSD cases. During this discussion, you will talk about your medical history, other treatment therapies you have undergone and what medications you are currently using.

Brandon Heads to NJ for Calmare Therapy to Overcome CRPS Pain and Swelling

August 31, 2016

Oklahomian Brandon Willis was diagnosed with CRPS after foot surgery in 2013. Like many sufferers, prescribed opiates did not lessen his pain or help relieve other symptoms, particularly periodic swelling.

He discovered Dr. Cooney and Calmare Therapy after he joined several online CRPS groups, seeking support and treatment recommendations.

Brandon and his family headed east to New Jersey for treatment earlier this month. As he continued to feel better, they also made good use of the clinic’s close proximity to New York City and enjoyed several days of sightseeing.

Where do you turn when prescription drugs and other treatments don’t lessen your chronic pain?

Well, for starters, don’t give up searching for the right solution. Calmare is a new pain treatment that doesn’t involve any medication use, needles or other painful procedures. And there are no unpleasant side effects during or after each treatment.

Cleared by the FDA, Calmare scrambler therapy is a new treatment for chronic pain that is changing many people’s lives.

Calmare Helps Betsy Overcome Post-Surgical Chronic Pain

August 22, 2016

Betsy from New Jersey thought having back surgery would finally end her chronic back pain. After undergoing a laminectomy (an operation to remove the back of one or more vertebrae, usually to relieve pressure on nerves), her specific back pain was alleviated, but she experienced new pain running from her back down to her feet.

She was prescribed Lyrica, in increasing dosages, followed by cortisone shots. Neither reduced her unremitting pain.

Betsy’s husband grew increasingly worried, as his formerly vivacious and spirited wife was experiencing increasing pain and limited mobility.

They heard about Calmare Therapy, the FDA-cleared, drug-free, pain-free treatment, which combats several types of chronic pain, including post-op surgical neuropathy.

Betsy came to Rutherford, in Bergen County, NJ, and completed the 10 treatment cycle in July 2016.

Dr. Cooney, Betsy and her husband describe her case and eventual outcome after treatment:

Would you like to find out if Calmare Therapy might be right for you?

Many patients to come to Calmare Therapy NJ USA have already tried a plethora of drugs, injections, invasive procedures, inpatient drug treatments… and still have chronic pain that continues to deplete their quality of life every day.

But they, or their loved ones, have not given up hope. With no obligation, we would be happy to talk with you about your medical history and mutually determine if Calmare might be an option for your neuropathic pain condition.

Teenager Joyce Nester Can Finally Sleep Again After Calmare Therapy

August 10, 2016

Eighteen-year-old Joyce suffered for four long years with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). She was diagnosed with the condition although she did not suffer from an injury or surgery.

Powerful prescription drugs and other treatments efforts did not lessen her chronic pain. She soon needed a wheelchair for mobility. After undergoing 10 scrambler therapy treatments here at Calmare Therapy NJ USA, her pain was a 2/10 when she left.

Joyce shared an email update describing how she is doing on August 10, 2016:

“After a long, long trip home, I’m still resting well. Thanks to the Calmare, the flight home was a lot less painful and my nights are still a lot better!!

I’m tired and sore, but so glad I came to you guys! It’s been the most relief I’ve had in 4 years.

I can’t even say how thankful I am to you all…

Have a great year!

Chanelle Checks in Between Hawaii and Australia

August 8, 2016

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

CRPS RibbonTwenty-eight-year-old Chanelle brightened our office during her 10- Calmare Therapy treatments earlier this year. She had been suffering with CRPS for 15 years (yes, it can affect children, teens, adults and seniors) primarily in her upper body, most severely in her left arm).

We started talking back in 2014, and this year she made the arduous 24-hour flight to New Jersey, USA from Australia.

Over the years, she and her loving family had aggressively tried several CRPS pain treatments for her, including:

  • Myriad of medications
  • Acupuncture
  • Physical therapy
  • Nerve blocks
  • Ketamine
  • Two spinal cord stimulator (SCS) trials (first traditional then high-frequency)

Finally, in the spring of 2016, Chanelle arrived at our clinic; after her 10-day treatment protocol,  she achieved an outstanding outcome, and left us nearly pain-free for the first time in more than a decade.

August 2016: Chanelle Sends an Update from Hawaii

Much to my delight, I received this recent update from her on my Facebook profile:

inside airplane“So a couple of weeks ago, i flew to Hawaii to see my partner. Since having the Calmare treatment, that has been the best flight experience for me. I’m usually in agonizing pain on the flight, and wonder why it is I torture myself my getting in a plane.

But this time, I sat back and enjoyed watching movies and arrived…relaxed 😊 !! My arm was even good enough for me to hold a gun long enough to shoot at the range… without pain.”

Why Calmare, Why Now?

This young woman’s story means the world to all of us. Every patient who graces our door has tried every drug, invasive and painful treatments and traveled incredible distances in search of pain treatment, only to be disappointed again. Many are (justifiably) on the verge of giving up hope.

But some have discovered our clinic here in New Jersey and their lives, along with their friends and family, have been changed by the success of scrambler therapy. We wish we could say this treatment for everyone and that it is “the cure” for all chronic pain. But, sadly, this isn’t the case. Nonetheless, we continue to achieve better than 80% success in significantly reducing severe chronic pain for people battling post-surgical pain and neuropathy from other chronic medical conditions.

We welcome our opportunity to help you or a loved loved one battling neuropathy, whether you are newly diagnosed or have suffered with chronic pain for decades, as Chanelle has.

Call us (you can ask for me and I’ll call you back) at 201-933-4440 or email me with your medical history. Let’s get a conversation going. Let’s start fighting back.

Diabetic Nerve Pain Can be Managed Using Drug-Free Treatments Like Calmare Therapy

People with diabetes often experience excruciating chronic foot pain.

August 5, 2016

An astounding 26 million Americans are living with diabetes and about one in five experience diabetic nerve pain.

This severe chronic pain condition, called diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN), has been reported by patients at a rate that is actually double the estimate from healthcare providers across the country, according to a new survey conducted by the American Chronic Pain Association (ACPA).

But diabetics are already reliant on medications to keep their conditions under control and do not want to add prescription pain medication to an already complex myriad of drugs they are taking to manage their disease.

More concerning, many doctors react to “I’m in pain” by writing a script for painkillers or opiates, doctors which can be prohibitively expensive, produce dangerous side effects, or become ineffective in managing the pain over time.

Pain Symptoms of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN):
  • Numbnessburning
  • Stabbing pain in the hands or feet
  • Tingling or burning
  • Extreme sensitivity to pain and temperature
  • Shooting pain
  • Loss of balance

Most troubling is the fact many sufferers don’t know to ask about drug-free ways to treat this pain with their healthcare providers. Sadly, 77% of patients says DPN interferes with their ability to complete and enjoy normal day-to-day activities.

What Causes Diabetic Neuropathy?

The cause of this pain is the result of uncontrolled sugar levels that, over time, damages the nerves, most commonly affecting the toes, feet and hands.

Successful treatment for diabetic nerve pain can be challenging, and the condition can often be drug-resistant as well.

Calmare Scrambler Therapy Can Overcome Nerve Pain

That’s where Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment can help. This drug-free, pain-free therapy is available at Rutherford Allied Medical Group in northern New Jersey, the one and only pain treatment facility that has advanced expertise in helping patients from around the world to cope with diabetes-related pain.

Living with diabetes is challenging enough—you should not have to live with debilitating pain or side effects from prescription painkillers just to get through the day.

Sixteen-year-old Battling RSD Achieves 0 Pain Level After Three Years

Danielle and her best friend.
Danielle and her best friend.

August 1, 2016

“My daughter missed about 75 percent of the last two school years,” says Marlo Payne, a registered nurse from update New York. “Her full body RSD had just taken over her life.” Danielle was diagnosed with reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) after a bunionectomy performed in 2013. The burning pain started in her toes and eventually spread to the top of her head.

Danielle said the burning pain was so severe she eventually felt ‘her brain sizzling.’ The Payne family mobilized and aggressively sought out a range of RSD treatment efforts:

  • Physical therapy
  • Epidurals
  • Surgery
  • Prescribed painkillers and opioids

With no significant success, and Danielle’s pain actively spreading, the family eventually traveled to the Cleveland Clinic so that Danielle could receive inpatient care in their widely regarded pain management physical therapy program.

Where do you turn after many chronic pain treatment efforts fail?

“We were all terribly disappointed when Danielle didn’t respond to this intensive treatment. I

Marlo Payne with Cathy_7.16

thought—what else can we do?” Her father Dan took matters into his own hands and began researching new RSD treatments online. He discovered Dr. Michael Cooney who uses Calmare Therapy (scrambler therapy) to lessen or even alleviate several kinds of neuropathic pain, particularly RSD / CRPS.

Best of all, this FDA-cleared treatment is painless, completely drug-free and has no side effects.

“By this time, Danielle was experiencing skin discoloration, unbearable pain and often relied on crutches or a wheelchair to get around. It was that bad,” Marlo recalls. Much to her surprise, when she initially called Calmare Therapy NJ, Barbara and Cathy immediately put her through to speak with Dr. Cooney.

“We talked about Danielle’s case, her previous treatment efforts and the severity of her condition. I wanted him to be fully aware of how bad her situation was,” Marlo explains. After talking with the doctor, she told her daughter’s best friend to pack up for a two-week stay in New Jersey to keep Danielle company during Calmare scrambler therapy treatment.

Danielle Arrives in New Jersey to Try Calmare Therapy

When she arrived, Danielle’s pain was a constant 10/10 on the Pain Scale. After her first treatment, however, Danielle felt some relief, estimating her pain was reduced to about an 8. With each daily treatment session, lasting about 35 minutes, her pain continued to decrease.

By treatment #7, the teen’s pain was down to a 2/10. By treatment #10, Danielle was pain-free for the first time in nearly three years.

Life after Calmare Therapy

Danielle Payne and friends_7.16Now back home and resuming a normal life for the first time in three years, Marlo says the whole family is still in a state of shock. “We’ve been consumed with this monster for so many years and to have it suddenly wiped away, well, we still can’t quite believe it,” Marlo says with a smile.

This relieved mother says that Danielle won’t go back to playing all the sports she loves, for now, but that full-time high school is definitely on the agenda. “Danielle was understandably depressed, being removed from a normal teenager’s social life due to the pain, but that’s no longer the case. She really has a second chance at life now.”

A few words about Dr. Michael Cooney

The Payne family also has kind words for Dr. Cooney and his team’s care:  He’s humble about his skill and he’s a straight-shooter, which I appreciate. He doesn’t sugar-coat and tells it like it is.”

Marlo says that families struggling with chronic pain should ‘make the phone call’ to Dr. Cooney.

“Study the information on their website and then speak to him about your situation. Dr. Cooney will be truthful, informative and candid with you. This machine may very well change your life. What are you waiting for?”
