We don’t want anyone to live with pain–but it’s especially disheartening to see older people forced to battle neuropathy during their golden years, often as a result of:
- Nerve damage (small fiber neuropathy)
- Diabetic neuropathy (chronic foot pain)
- Pain from cancer or chemotherapy treatment (CIPN)
- Post-surgical pain
- Chronic back pain
- Phantom limb syndrome
Since we introduced Calmare Therapy in 2011, we have helped older people reduce or even eliminate their neuropathic pain, after a myriad of prescription pain medications and other traditional therapies failed.
Recently, Bernice Goldman made the trip up from Florida with her daughter, who discovered Dr. Cooney’s success using scrambler therapy through online research.
Bernice was suffering from small fiber neuropathy and had tried every medication, every therapy and every treatment, without success. She explains below:
Mrs. Goldman is one of several seniors who reaped the rewards of FDA-cleared Calmare Therapy, which is a painless treatment with no side effects.
Eighty-seven-year-old Ann Shares Her Pain Relief Story (below):
“For the past two and a half years I’ve been suffering from severe CIPN in my feet, after undergoing Taxol therapy for breast cancer. Three months after finishing the chemo, the neuropathy got much worse.
Since then I’ve been on a high dose of pain medication (Gabapentin, Venlafaxine, Tramadol). Still, my pain kept being at a level between 5 to 10. I also tried morphine patches, two painful and unsuccessful nerve blocks, cortisone injections, acupuncture, tens treatments and vitamin B12 shots. Nothing helped.
My doctors told me that my CIPN was chronic and not much else could be done about it.
Meanwhile, I kept researching options and read about the clinical trials for CIPN with “Calmare Therapy” at the Massey Cancer Center, as well as at the University of Wisconsin (UW) Carbone Center.
The doctors at both institutions told me that they experienced positive outcomes. I was also able to talk to a patient who underwent Calmare treatment, which was encouraging. Then in the fall of 2011, I learned that the U.S. Military opened several Calmare centers.
I decided to give it a try and contacted Dr. Cooney at the Rutherford Allied Medical Group in the United States.”
Do You or an Older Loved One Suffer from Treatment-Resistant Chronic Pain?
If the diagnosis is neuropathy, scrambler therapy may be a viable pain management solution which can:
- Lessen or eliminate chronic pain
- Improve or restore mobility
- Reduce or eliminate the need for debilitating prescription pain medication
- Dramatically improve daily quality-of-life
We invite you to reach out to talk one-on-one about you or your loved one’s medical history and pain management goals.
