West Virginia Woman Battles CRPS after Carpel Tunnel Surgery

October 17, 2017

On Friday, Tonya Shuler completed her final Calmare treatment and prepared to head home to West Virginia, pain-free. A personal trainer, she was diagnosed with CRPS a year ago, after undergoing carpel tunnel surgery.

The majority of her chronic 9/10-level pain was in her arm and hand.

Before coming to New Jersey, the married mother of three adult children had been prescribed several different painkillers including:

  • Gabapentin
  • OxyCondone
  • Cymbalta

None of these drugs offered any significant pain relief and she was also uncomfortable using opioids for an extended period of time.

Eventually, she also tried nerve blocks and injections, which were also ineffective.

Like so many other living with chronic nerve pain she and her family felt like they were out of options. And Tonya’s pain range began to spread.

Tonya heard about Calmare Therapy, an FDA-cleared, painless alternative therapy for neuropathic pain on a CRPS support group website. Since it had no side effects, she and her family decided to try it.

She began scrambler therapy treatment on October 2 and finished Friday, October 13.

“Tonya arrived with a pain level near a 10/10,” Dr. Cooney explains. “But after her final session this morning, she is leaving us pain-free and is off all pain medications.”

Where Do You Turn When Traditional Treatments and Painkillers Don’t Work?

Dr. Cooney says patients often suffer for years before seeking out opioid-free alternative therapy for neuropathic chronic pain.

“The healthcare industry usually prescribes prescription painkillers as the first treatment for chronic pain,” he says. “But in many cases, these drugs don’t reduce pain and become less effective the longer they are used.”

One of six Certified Calmare providers in the U.S., Dr. Cooney introduced scrambler therapy to his practice in 2011 to help his treatment-resident patients battling chronic pain. Today, he treats patients from around the world, including Australia, South America, Israel, Canada and Europe.

To learn more, call our patient and friendly Calmare team at (201) 933-4440 or email us at CalmareNJ@gmail.com. International patients may set up a phone-in consultation with Dr. Cooney by confirming a date/time in advance.

Four Calmare Booster Treatments Later, Liz Puts CRPS Pain Back at 0

October 12, 2017

calmare scrambler therapy
Liz completes four Calmare booster treatments and heads back to Missouri pain-free.

Liz treated here with us in November of 2014. She was battling increasingly severe CRPS symptoms and it was keeping her from sports (she’s a star basketball player) and just enjoying college.

She was diagnosed with CRPS after a nasty basketball injury to her right leg. Using crutches when she arrived from Missouri, Liz had a consistent pain level of  8 / 10.

But as many of you know, CRPS can rear its ugly head down the road, even when a pain-free level has been achieved.

When Liz’s pain level returned seven months later in 2015, she returned for a few Calmare booster treatments which put the pain into remission until this summer (2017).

She was here a few weeks ago, over two years since her last booster, since her pain had risen to a 6/10.

After four boosters, she went back to her life pain-free once again.

“We’ve been treating CRPS since 2011, so we have a track record of how patients respond months and years after their initial 10-treatment cycle is complete,” explains Calmare Clinical Director Dr. Michael Cooney.

“Those who do experience a pain recurrence, and have one or more boosters, seem to require them less frequently as time goes on, in the majority of cases.”

U.S. Army Soldier Finds Relief from Full Body CRPS

October 9, 2017

We were honored to meet and provide Calmare scrambler therapy treatment for Jay Szymczak a few weeks ago.

Jay underwent two back surgeries while in the Army, eventually resulting in CRPS, which spread throughout his body. Those of you suffering with this monster will appreciate his description of the type of pain he endured for years.

Eventually forced to retire from the Military, he discovered Calmare after performing research on newer alternative pain management treatments with his wife after pain medications, medical cannabis and a plethora of invasive treatments still left him in debilitating pain.

“Jay’s treatment outcome reminds us why we continue to fight this fight every single day,” says Calmare Clinical Director Dr. Michael Cooney, who treated Jay. “He’s a wonderful husband and father who served his country proudly. He certainly deserves to live pain-free.”

Jay sums it up best in his video below. “I have my life back.”

Welcoming Dr. Timakkondu, Calmare Physician from India

September 28, 2017

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

Dr. T and Emily Black_9.2017
A smiling Emily Blake is shown with Dr. Cooney and Dr. Timakkondu, visiting Calmare physician from Madurai, India (9/27/17).

We’re honored to welcome Dr. Kuppusami Timakkondu,  a highly regarded Calmare provider from India who is observing here at the clinic this week.

Dr. Timakkondu is particularly interested in our CRPS, fibromyalgia and trigeminal neuritis treatment protocols.

We’re shown here with superstar patient, Emily Blake, who is undergoing booster treatments with us this week. You may recall Emily’s battle with CRPS was chronicled by her daily newspaper in Indiana.

While Emily’s pain level had risen to a 5/10, after her third booster treatment yesterday, September 27, her pain level is down to 1/10, thankfully.

Calmare is a Provider Dependent Therapy. Why You Should Choose Wisely

While Dr. Timakkondu and I may live and practice pain management at opposite ends of the globe, we are united in our war against chronic pain.

Thank you for your insight, your candor and your friendship, doctor.

Is Your Pain Management Failing You?

The Calmare Therapy NJ USA clinic is often a ‘last stop’ for people in pain who have tried all the drugs, injections, surgeries and other painful and invasive therapies to stop their chronic pain.

Scrambler therapy is painless, drug-free and has no side effects. The biggest risk factor is that the therapy will not reduce your pain.

But the majority of people who have undergone scrambler therapy have significantly lessened their neuropathy to a ‘manageable level’ or eliminated their pain completely (our goal).

If you’d like to find out if scrambler therapy might be right for you, call us at 201-933-444, email us at CalmareNJ@gmail.com or complete the eCard below:

Megan Resumes Paramedic Career After Calmare Therapy

September 4, 2017

Megan came to us from Australia in June 2016 after being severely debilitated by neuropathic pain symptoms as a result of a five-year battle with Lyme Disease.

“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 was 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.”

Eleven Scrambler Therapy Treatments Later…

“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.”

Megan Checks in 14 Months Since Scrambler Therapy

August 2017

We were delighted to receive this message/update from Megan, which she kindly gave us permission to share with you:

“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! 😀

You were all a part of this journey and I will be forever grateful that you are in my life.

Kind regards,
Megan, Joanne & Family”

Future Calmare Doctors Mentored by Dr. Michael Cooney

August 16, 2017

Dr. Damon Orlando from Studio City, CA visited our clinic last week to shadow Dr. Cooney as he treated patients battling chronic pain using Calmare scrambler therapy. He is considering introducing Calmare to his geographic area.

Dr. Cooney has received acclaim for his use of opioid-free therapies to overcome several types of acute and chronic pain for more than 30 years.

But adding Calmare in 2011 as a pain management therapy (which has no side effects) garnered global attention:

Emily Hewatt Returns from Treatment in New Jersey Pain-Free

emi-hewatt-having-calmare-treatment-_10-16“Patients should understand that Calmare is a ‘provider-dependent’ treatment,” Dr. Cooney cautions. “The provider (doctor) determines the placement of the individual leads according to the origin of the pain site–not necessarily where the pain is being experienced.”

The Calmare Certified doctor says the scrambler therapy provider should also have a proven history of treatment success for the specific medical condition the patient is seeking therapy.

Ensure your provider is “Calmare Certified” and has successfully treated several patients with your specific pain condition.

Do You Have Medication and Treatment-Resistant Pain?

We invite you to reach out and consult with our Calmare team to mutually determine if scrambler therapy might be right for you.

At Calmare Therapy NJ USA, you’ll speak directly with our founder and clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney, who has treated hundreds of patients battling chronic pain.

Suffering with CRPS for 17 Years, Peter Brings Pain to 0

August 11, 2017

It’s hard to imagine battling pain for 17 years, but Peter Hinninger fought back with everything traditional medicine had to offer–including the strongest opioids on the market.

Yielding no marked relief, he had a spinal cord stimulator implanted in his back.

And, still, his pain level hovered around a 7-8/10, which debilitates you to a point that you are forced to the sidelines of living.

Peter widened his search for pain relief through alternative medicine solutions that would not involve more surgery,  more pain or mental fogginess.

He discovered Calmare and spoke directly with clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney to determine if he was a candidate.

Since scrambler therapy has no side effects, they agreed the only risk would be that the treatment did not lessen his pain.

Peter describes what happened next:

Plantar Fasciitis Causes Complex Regional Pain Syndrome for NJ Woman

August 4, 2017

Rosemary Lombardo was diagnosed with CRPS after treatment for a common heel injury, plantar fasciitis (heel spurs).

Traditional heel spurs therapy–physical therapy, regular icing, crutches, medication–did not lessen her pain.

Eventually, she could no longer walk due to the pain level she experienced.

What is plantar fasciitis?

The New Jersey woman tried traditional CRPS medications and other pain management treatments, but the pain worsened.

She discovered Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment online and read about other CRPS patients who had come from around the world for Dr. Michael Cooney’s treatment, many with lower extremity nerve pain.

Rosemary consulted directly with the doctor and was approved to undergo scrambler therapy.

Rosemary describes her scrambler therapy pain treatment

Is your pain management medication or therapy leaving you still in pain?

You are not alone, first and foremost.

The majority of our patients arrive at our clinic after trying bags full of medications and undergoing painful and invasive treatments,–spinal cord stimulators, nerve blocks, etc. without achieving pain relief.

If approved for treatment, you will have an opportunity to undergo a painless procedure over the course of 10 days that has no unpleasant side effects.

Calmare treats these conditions that cause chronic nerve pain.

We are happy to provide a live consultation by phone to talk about your neuropathic pain condition. International callers are welcome to connect with us via FaceTime or Skype.

Our friendly team of Calmare professionals can be reached at (201) 933-4440 or CalmareNJ@gmail.com

Reach out to our New Jersey Clinic, located about 10 minutes outside New York City, to talk with us about Calmare. But first, read more about the treatment and how it works.

We wish we could report that Calmare is a ‘miracle’ treatment and will end your pain. For many this has occurred. But it does not work for every patient, for reasons which can be explained, and sometimes cannot.
