pet therapy for chronic pain

By Dr. Michael Cooney, Clinical Director

Gina, who has been treating with us for post-surgical neuropathy, swears her little dog helps lessen stress and lower her pain level.

And I agree 100%.

If bringing your pet to your Calmare treatments makes you feel better, bring him or her along!

READ: “How Pets Can Help Lessen Chronic Pain” (Everyday Health)

We don’t operate like other pain management clinics,

never have, never will.

Bring your pet.

If you are living with treatment-resistant chronic pain, consider an alternative medicine therapy, such as Calmare scrambler therapy.

For more than a decade, Calmare has been FDA-cleared, has no side effects and is painless to undergo.

Best of all, there are no opioids, prescription drugs or any medications at all connected with undergoing Calmare.

READ: How Does Scrambler Therapy Work?

This can be particularly helpful to people who have been reliant upon prescription medication for a prolonged period of time and who may benefit from a drug-free pain therapy alternative.

Chronic pain puts too many good people–from children to seniors–on the sidelines of living.

I believe so strongly in the healing power of scrambler therapy, I use this technology exclusively to treat various types of neuropathy, in varying degrees of severity.

We invite you to reach out and let’s discuss if Calmare can help you or a loved one finally defeat the monster we call pain.

Call (201) 933-4440 or email us privately about your case at info@calmaretherapynj.com.

I’ll talk to you soon.

Celebrating a Year Defeating Chronic Pain

December 31, 2018

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

We are celebrating a banner year here at Calmare Therapy NJ USA.

In 2018, we treated the highest number of people with chronic nerve pain since we began using scrambler therapy in 2011.

From children and teens to adults and seniors, our non-invasive therapy is quietly giving people their lives back, free of pain.

We helped people battling CRPS, PHN, nerve pain after chemotherapy (CIPN) and prolonged pain after surgery (post-surgical pain).

For the first time, we also began treating people with treatment-resistant low back pain and sciatica and are very excited by these patients’ strong pain relief outcomes. (More on that in early 2019).

You have my word, we have not even begun the fight yet.

If you have been unsuccessful lessening your pain with medication or other pain management therapies, please contact us to discuss your neuropathic pain condition.

Most importantly, don’t give up the fight. Don’t give up hope.

Non-Invasive Therapy for Treatment-Resistant Sciatica and Back Pain

November 8, 2018

Mari Ramos_back leadsCalmare scrambler therapy is an exciting drug-free alternative to combat nerve damage as a result of medication and treatment-resistant sciatica or lumbar nerve damage.

Calmare uses biophysical “scrambler” technology, a treatment for nerve pain that uses electrodes placed on the skin.

How the Calmare MC-5A technology can significantly lessen treatment-resistant lumbar and sciatica neuropathy

Our device reduces sciatic and spinal neuropathy by creating an artificial neuron that retrains the brain by sending a ‘no-pain’ signal along the sciatic root to the brain.

It’s key to understand the distinction between

a sciatic/lumber neuritis and a sciatic/lumbar neuropathy.

The neuropathy (chronic pain) is constant; the pain may vary from low to high, but the discomfort never goes away completely. This chronic, never-ending nerve pain is the root cause that scrambler therapy can relieve.

Conversely, a sciatic/lumbar neuritis is usually a structural or biomechanical problem, such as a pinched nerve or ligament damage. These types of conditions should be treated by chiropractors or physical therapists who specialize in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.

Via small electrodes strategically positioned by a specially-trained doctor, a ‘no-pain’ message is transmitted directly to the nerve for a period of approximately 35 minutes per session.

Regardless of severity, pain and physical symptoms caused by the neuropathic condition can be significantly reduced-or even alleviated-by the conclusion of the 10-treatment series.

The cause of chronic sciatica or back pain may be a result of injury, failed back surgery or generalized aging of bones and joints.

Double-Blind Clinical Study Finds Decreased Low Back Pain Following Calmare Therapy

For severe cases of neuropathic pain, subsequent Calmare booster treatments are sometimes, but not always, necessary for patients who have lived with the chronic pain condition for an extended period of time before undergoing Calmare Therapy treatment.

Calmare scrambler therapy benefits
  • Proven successful in the treatment of neuropathic pain by leading oncologic studies 
  • FDA-cleared 510(k)-cleared and European CE mark-certified
  • Pain-free
  • Non-invasive
  • Drug-free
  • No side effects

People with treatment and medication-resistant neuropathy describe their outcomes after Calmare Therapy

Will Calmare work for my back pain?

First, let us be perfectly clear—while this non-invasive therapy has been successful for more than 75 percent of our patients with chronic nerve pain, it does not significantly reduce or eliminate pain or everyone, unfortunately.

We have seen marked success (pain reduction or remission) for children, teens, adults and seniors battling these neuropathic pain conditions:

  • Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Neck Pain
  • Foot Pain
  • Failed Back Surgery Syndrome
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Chemotherapy associated Cancer Pain – CIPN
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome – CRPS
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Neuropathic Pain/Neuropathy – General
  • Phantom Limb Syndrome
  • Post Shingles Pain – PHN
  • Pudendal (Gynecologic) Pain

Calmare is a ‘provider dependent therapy. Is your doctor Calmare Certified?

When will my pain level start to decrease?

In most cases, we see by treatment 3-4 if a patient’s neuropathy will be significantly minimized or a pain-free state can be achieved. Many patients experience pain relief as early as 10 minutes into their first treatment session. As the number of treatment sessions increases, the duration of pain relief is prolonged.

What if my pain comes back?

Depending on the severity of the original condition and the length of time the patient has been experiencing chronic pain, periodic booster treatments may be required to combat any return of pain.

Is Calmare technology comparable to a TENS unit?

No. The Calmare® MC-5A device creates a low energy electrical impulse which travels through the patient’s nerves delivering a “no-pain” signal to the brain.

This scrambles (disrupts) the brain’s misfiring pain signal that the area of pain is normal and eventually results in prolonged pain relief.

TENS units are self-use devices that can temporarily lessen pain but when discontinued provide no lasting pain resolution.

Meet 30 Calmare Therapy NJ Patients on YouTube

October 23, 2018

By Dr. Michael Cooney, Clinical Director, Calmare Therapy NJ USA

Most people who visit our website are already frustrated with the medical community.

They or a loved one are in pain.

Pain medication is not pain management, they have learned firsthand.

But a myriad of painful procedures, surgery and implanted devices have also failed to do their jobs.

Then what?

From unexplained neuropathy after surgery to diabetic neuropathy or pain after chemotherapy , too many people are left with unresolved neuropathy.

And they continue to lead debilitated lives, so unfairly.

I came to this conclusion years ago, which is what compelled me to launch Calmare scrambler, an FDA-cleared alternative therapy here in New Jersey in 2011.

Mayo Clinic Researchers Test Scrambler Therapy for Pain

It has no side effects, is painless to undergo. It’s drug-free. The worst case scenario is that the treatment does not work, which happens.

But in more than 75% of the patients we treat, their pain is significantly reduced–or eliminated.

Watch and listen to the patients for whom we have relieved severe chronic pain over the years–

From 10-year-old children to seniors who had battled neuropathy for decades, you will discover someone who has fought the same battle with pain that you do.

Then, we hope you’ll reach out via the contact form below, by emailing us at calmarenj@gmail.com or calling our clinic at (201) 933-4440.

Seniors Living with Chronic Pain Benefit from Scrambler Therapy

March 14, 2018

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):
A Letter from Nelia B Who Traveled to NJ from Amsterdam for CIPN Relief After Chemo Taxol Therapy

“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.”

Read Nelia’s full story and treatment outcome here.

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

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.”

Pain News Network Cites Calmare as Pain Reduction Champion

June 29, 2017

pain-news-network

Barby Ingle, a global chronic pain educator, patient advocate, and president of the International Pain Foundation, who lives with reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), migralepsy and endometriosis, published a commentary this week in Pain News Network, citing Calmare Therapy as a key alternative medicine treatment for chronic nerve pain.

Excerpt:

“The provider I hear about the most having success with this form of treatment is Dr. Michael Cooney, a chiropractor practicing in New Jersey who sees patients from all over country.”

Ms. Ingle also refers to Calmare Therapy NJ clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney’s Pain News Network guest editorial  describing how scrambler therapy is a side-effect-free and drug-free alternative to help lessen or even resolve treatment- and medication-resistant chronic pain.

Calmare Therapy is an FDA-cleared neuropathic pain treatment for several conditions including injury, post-surgical pain, CRPS / RSD, postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) as a result of shingles, fibromyalgia, nerve pain after chemotherapy treatment (CIPN), diabetic nerve pain and other types of diagnosed nerve damage.

“I hear more than ever from others living with chronic pain that they “have tried everything” and nothing helps. But there are always new pain therapies being developed or improved; some real, some placebo, and some researched more than others.”

Barby Ingle

Virginia Woman’s CRPS Causes 10/10 Pain and Feet Lesions

May 26, 2017

Debbie Meade’s son begged for her feet to be amputated so she would no longer suffer with excruciating CRPS pain.

Her debilitating chronic pain had spread and was causing severe swelling in her feet, which eventually caused the skin to tear. The resulting lesions did not heal naturally, leaving her open to the danger of infection.

In addition, her pain level was regularly 10/10 on the McGill Pain Scale.

Arriving here in New Jersey using two canes for mobility, her life was about to change dramatically.

Debbie describes her Calmare Therapy experience (May 2017)
Calmare Scrambler Therapy History and Clinical Trial Outcomes

Calmare Therapy is a drug-free, FDA-cleared treatment that safely scrambles the pain message from the brain. It is painless and has no side effects.

The first study on scrambler therapy was published in 2003 by a team of researchers led by Giuseppe Marineo, professor in Delta Research and Development at the University of Rome Tor Vergata in Italy.

His team found that scrambler therapy was effective in reducing pain symptoms in patients with severe, drug-resistant pain from terminal cancer.

Mayo Clinic physician and scrambler therapy researcher Charles L. Loprinzi, MD, reports on his team’s clinical findings with Healio (2016).

Scrambler Therapy Lessens Chronic Nerve Pain

Calmare (the brand name for the MC-5A scrambler therapy device) was later found to also aid in the lessening or alleviation of chronic nerve pain as a result of:

  • chemotherapy (CIPN)
  • diabetes (diabetic nerve pain)
  • fibromyalgia
  • back and neck pain
  • shingles (PHN)
  • failed back surgery syndrome
  • phantom limb pain
  • other neuropathic nerve pain conditions
Using Calmare to Reduce CRPS / RSD Neuropathy and Physical Symptoms

Clinical Director Dr. Michael Cooney at Calmare Therapy NJ USA has also successfully treated hundreds of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and RSD patients from around the world

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?
