Robert Welcomes 2018 by Eliminating His Chronic Nerve Pain

January 12, 2018

Bergen County, New Jersey

Robert, a married teacher with two children from Georgia, was battling chronic nerve pain after foot surgery in 2013.

As the school track coach, his pain condition began to interfere with his mobility, making coaching difficult and frustrating.

For pain management, Robert chose not to use prescription painkillers and preferred to aggressively fight back by undergoing an additional ‘corrective’ surgery, physical therapy, use of a hyperbaric oxygen chamber, bone stimulation and orthotics.

And still, he was battling nerve pain in his right foot daily.

Researching Drug-Free Pain Management Options

He began researching non-invasive, alternative medicine options which treat neuropathic pain and discovered Calmare Therapy, performed by leading Calmare Certified provider, clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney in New Jersey.

While he was never officially diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), Robert was experiencing the same type and severity of symptoms.

He consulted by phone with Dr. Cooney about his medical history and pain treatment goals and they mutually agreed that he was a suitable candidate to undergo the treatment.

When Robert arrived in New Jersey, his pain level was a 6 / 10. He immediately began daily therapy sessions over the course of the next two weeks.

By the end of the series of scrambler therapy treatments, he was pain-free, with only a mild tingling sensation over the surgical scars.

Our team was delighted to see a very different Robert leave the clinic:

He was smiling again and looking forward to getting back to school and resuming his track team coaching.

Good luck Coach!

Calmare is FDA-Cleared as a Therapy for Nerve Pain After Chemotherapy

January 8, 2018

Chemotherapy patients may experience resulting nerve damage, a condition called CIPN, which is resistant to traditional medical treatment, including painkillers.

It is one of the great frustrations of healthcare — how to mitigate pain.

Those who suffer most live every moment of every day in pain, due to a wide variety of factors.

This could not be more true for cancer patients who have endured chemotherapy in order to eradicate cancer cells from their bodies and achieve remission.

But some patients pay a price for this victory — they are left with painful nerve damage as a result of the powerful after-affects of the cancer-killing drugs.

This condition, chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy, or CIPN, has no cure.

Patients battling nerve pain after cancer treatment are often prescribed prescription painkillers  (more drugs) and, we hope, at least a few alternative therapy options.

That’s why the news from several studies, including the University of Wisconsin, the Massey Cancer Institute, and the Mayo Clinic are so important.

National Institute of Health Reports on Scrambler Therapy study with CIPN patients.

These centers’ studies have confirmed that Calmare’s scrambler therapy is producing significantly positive results in minimizing or even eliminating pain from chemotherapy treatment.

We have treated patients with CIPN since 2011 and have seen these positive outcomes firsthand.

These findings, reported by top U.S. cancer centers, serve as a light at the end of a long, dark tunnel of pain for our friends, family and colleagues living with the painful after-effects of chemotherapy treatment.

We welcome you to contact us to learn more about using scrambler therapy as a non-invasive, painless treatment for nerve pain after cancer treatment.

Also important, the treatments have no side effects.

Woman from South America Finds CRPS Relief at Calmare Therapy NJ USA

December 15, 2017

El síndrome de dolor regional complejo (SDRC)

Juana adding her pin to our Calmare global patient map.

Juana, age 44, from Columbia, was diagnosed in 2009 with CRPS in both legs after an injury and eventual surgery.

En español es síndrome de dolor regional complejo (SDRC) también llamado distrofia simpática refleja.

Over the years, she was prescribed a lengthy list of prescription medications to lessen her chronic pain, including Ketamine, epidurals and nerve blocks.

These efforts provided no pain relief and her symptoms expanded to include:

  • allodynia
  • numbness
  • tingling
  • sensitivity to temperature changes
  • intermittent burning
  • pins and needles sensations

Juana and her husband discovered Dr. Michael Cooney‘s use of Calmare scrambler therapy as a pain management therapy to lessen the symptoms of CRPS.

What is Calmare and How Can It Relieve Chronic Nerve Pain?

After a video conference consultation, the wife and mother of two children was approved to undergo therapy and the couple arrived in New Jersey, USA in early December, 2017.

When Juana presented at our clinic, her pain level was a consistent 9/10, and had been at this level for some time.

After reviewing her medical records, Dr. Cooney formulated a treatment plan for optimal placement of the Calmare leads, in conjunction with her original pain regions.

Calmare Is a Provider-Dependent Therapy.  Know Your Provider
Dr. Michael Cooney, Juana and her husband during her Calmare Therapy treatments in New Jersey, USA.

“While Juana was experiencing a very high pain level, I had treated other patients with her similar medical history and felt confident we would achieve a positive outcome,” Dr. Cooney explains.

Each day, Juana received a single scrambler therapy treatment and then returned to her hotel to rest.

After a full week of Calmare treatments, her pain had reduced to a 5/6; at the conclusion of her 10 sessions, her pain has reduced to a 2/3 for the first time in nearly eight years.

In addition, her additional physical symptoms noted above are now gone, with the exception of slight temperature sensitivity and pins and needles. (This may be due to the extreme cold temperatures we are experiencing in New Jersey now.)

“Of course we strive to send every patient home with no pain–but that is not possible for everyone,” Dr. Cooney noted.

“But living with a pain level this low (2/3) allows the person to fully engage in life again and resume normal functioning.”

The Certified Calmare provider remarked that Juana was extremely pleased with her outcome.

Juana was also in touch with another woman living with CRPS from Ecuador, who is currently undergoing treatment with us this week.

Have Painkillers, Invasive Treatments and Therapies Failed to Lessen Your Neuropathic Pain?

Nearly all of the patients we treat have already traveled down this path as well.

Juana and our Calmare patient coordinator, Cathy, became fast friends and will stay in touch via Skype.

U.S. Air Force Offers Airmen Drug-Free Calmare Therapy Chronic Pain Treatment

December 3, 2017

chronic pain therapy
The U.S. Air Force offers Calmare Therapy to airmen suffering from chronic nerve pain.

It is exciting to see our U.S. Military continue to promote the use of opioid-free Calmare scrambler therapy to treat several types of chronic pain, including complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) in Air Force members and their families.

A recent article published on their website noted:

“NST (nerve scrambler therapy) is one of the Medical Wing’s most cutting-edge methods for managing chronic and debilitative nerve pain that impacts warfighters’ job performance and long-term quality of life.”

The Calmare MC-5A device transmits low-grade electrical messages between the pain site and the brain, scrambling the pain messaging.

The article also states that because of a thorough Air Force screening process, they have been very successful with Calmare Therapy and there have been no known or reported side effects or injuries from the use of this machine.

Phantom Limb Pain Treatment

The article states that Calmare is also commonly used to treat a condition found among some wounded warriors known as phantom limb pain. Phantom limb pain is a condition in which an amputee experiences pain sensation from the part of the body that was removed.

Have Painkillers, Invasive Treatments and Therapies Failed to Lessen Your Neuropathic Pain?

Nearly all of the patients we treat have already traveled down that same path, also.

Gratitude is Good for Your Health

November 22, 2017

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney  |  Clinical Director

As a health professional, I see every day how the mind affects health, emotionally and physically.

This week, a popular article is circulating which scientifically supports the premise that feeling grateful provides several key health benefits.

Results from a recent study found that acknowledging gratitude is good for body, mind and spirit 365 days a year, not just at Thanksgiving.

“People who partake in a “three good things” exercise — prompting people to think of three good moments or things that happened that day — see considerable improvements in depression and overall happiness, sometimes in as little as a couple of weeks.

If there were a drug that did that, whoever patented that drug would be rich.”

With that said, my gratitude is plentiful this year:

From many family celebrations, including my daughter committing to college next year,  to treating hundreds of people battling acute and chronic pain, it has been a year to be grateful for so many things.

In 2017, we have treated a record number of patients who have put their trust in us to  help them overcome severe chronic pain.

My thanks to you for reading our blog and sharing our journey.

May your Thanksgiving celebration create memories that last a lifetime.

Oregonian Nurse Chooses Calmare Therapy for CRPS Chronic Pain

November 7, 2017

We continue to welcome an influx of healthcare professionals seeking treatment for their own medication and treatment-resistant neuropathies.

This is an important honor for us and we are pleased to share another medical professional who achieved pain relief success from Calmare Therapy, registered nurse Kathryn Talenda–

Kathryn suffered from diagnosed CRPS for 10 long years.

She developed the condition (one she had never heard of) after a right foot sprain.

After trying every therapy from Botox to PT, she was debilitated by even more pain.

Eventually, she let her nursing license expire, as she was no longer able to work.

Not willing to give up, Kathryn traveled 3,000 to Calmare NJ USA, arriving with a consistent pain level of 8.5 / 10.

She explains what happened next below:

Are You Battling Medication and Treatment-Resistant Chronic Pain?

Most of our patients, who come from around the globe, have already tried every pill and procedure available, including spinal cord stimulators and Ketamine, but are still in pain every day.

Why Calmare Therapy is a completely different type of pain management:

  • Non-invasive
  • FDA-cleared
  • Drug-free
  • Painless

Dr. Michael Cooney Discusses Calmare in NJ Monthly Magazine

November 2, 2017

Dr. Cooney and his success treating several types of chronic nerve pain (chronic pain) is included in a lengthy article in NJ Monthly magazine, “As Addiction Rises, Doctors Seek Pain-Relieving Alternatives to Opioids”.

“We think there’s a hypersensitivity that develops within the pain center of the brain in some people,” says Dr. Michael Cooney, one of fewer than 10 Certified providers of Calmare Therapy nationwide. “Scrambler therapy uses painless electrodes to move “a no-pain signal” out of the area of pain in order to “reboot” the brain, so that it’s no longer sending any pain signal.”

Marilyn Green, a patient who underwent the therapy after refusing to fill opioid prescriptions offered by her pain management physician, was interviewed for the article. She experienced debilitating post-surgical foot pain that eventually left her wheelchair-bound.

““When I went to see Dr. Cooney, my pain level was at nine and I could not walk,” she says. “On day five of the 10 Calmare treatments, it was already down to zero.”

To speak personally with Dr. Michael Cooney to find out if Calmare scrambler therapy may be a treatment option for your medication and treatment-resistant chronic nerve pain, call our friendly and professional Calmare team at (201) 933-4440 or email us at Calmarenj@gmail.com.

Calmare Patient Releases New Book About His CRPS Treatment Success

October 27, 2017

Earlier this year, Peter Hinninger came to Calmare NJ as a last resort.

Over the course of 17 long years, he had tried every medication and every treatment, including a spinal cord stimulator (neuromodulation) to lessen his chronic pain.

Still, his pain level hovered around a consistent 7-8 on the Pain Scale.

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

He discovered Calmare.

Peter describes his long history with chronic pain and eventual relief after scrambler therapy.

After the completion of his therapy, performed by clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney, he was pain-free for the first time in more than a decade.

Eventually, he and his longtime partner wrote a book about his successful treatment, detailing his physical improve day-by-day during the course of his 10 scrambler therapy treatments.

The New Jersey resident’s purpose in writing the book is to let others living in chronic pain know that reducing or eliminating pain does not have to come in the form of a pill or invasive procedure.

“Peter is an exceptionally bright gentleman who documented his pain management treatment with us in captivating detail,” says Dr. Cooney. “Anyone living with chronic nerve pain can appreciate how life-changing achieving a pain-free state can be.”

“Peter’s Foot” is now available on Amazon.com.
