Failed back surgery syndrome

Calmare Scrambler Therapy Available at All Military Branches

May 22, 2020

As we prepare to honor our veterans lost in battle on Memorial Day 2020, we felt it was appropriate to announce that the U.S. Military has expanded the availability of Calmare scrambler therapy to 16 military medical centers and two VA locations.

These facilities are generally restricted for use by military personnel, their dependents and other eligible individuals.

Dr. Michael Cooney, Calmare nj USa clinical director,  is also an approved Calmare scrambler therapy provider for veterans living in New Jersey. Veterans must have a written referral from a V.A. physician to schedule therapy.

Dr. Michael Cooney is a New Jersey VA Hospital In-Network Provider

Soldiers, veterans and their families living with chronic nerve pain do not need to turn to more surgery, Ketamine treatments, spinal cord stimulators (SCS) and other invasive procedures for pain relief.

“The U.S. Military was one of the first treatment centers to recognize Calmare’s capacity to substantially reduce or eliminate nerve pain without using invasive procedures, needles, medications or surgeries,” explains Dr. Cooney.

Chronic pain conditions suitable for Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment

Using a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical approach, this pain management approach treats neuropathic conditions caused by a variety of medical conditions including:

  • Chronic nerve pain
  • Phantom limb syndrome
  • Chronic back pain
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Neuralgias
  • Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS or RSD)
  • Diabetic neuropathy
  • Cancer and chemotherapy
  • Shingles (PHN)

Click to listen to the interview (January 2, 2020)

I was honored to be interviewed by Chris Sawyer on Mind Body Radio recently, discussing the merits of drug-free Calmare therapy.

Listen to the Mind Body Radio interview with Dr. Cooney here

What You Won’t Get with Calmare Therapy

Chris asked me all the right questions about scrambler therapy and we hope it highlights that pain management can be achieved without the use of:

  • medication
  • surgery
  • needles
  • invasive procedures

 

What is Calmare Therapy?

Is scrambler therapy right for my chronic nerve pain condition?

Calmare Therapy NJ USA Treats Chronic Pain Differently

The pain management crisis in healthcare has affected all of us.

We introduced Calmare Therapy at our New Jersey medical practice in 2011 precisely because pain medications and painful treatments don’t help many people relieve their neuropathies.

New Sciatica and Chronic Back Pain Treatment: Calmare Therapy

Calmare therapy treats chronic back pain and sciatica
Too many people suffer from medication and treatment-resistant chronic back pain and sciatica.

November 6, 2019

We all know of friends, family members and work colleagues who suffer from chronic back or sciatica pain.

They’ve tried all the drugs and therapies and still have pain.

In our pain management clinic, back pain is the number one affliction our patients face.

For those patients whose pain is nerve-focused, we are increasingly recommending Calmare Therapy, particularly for people battling chronic back pain for six months or longer.

Calmare uses biophysical “scrambler” technology, a treatment for nerve pain that uses electrodes placed on the skin through which low amounts of electricity scrambles the pain message from the brain so that it stops sending the pain signal.

Yes, in fact, it’s as simple as it sounds.

Most importantly, 75 percent of the chronic nerve pain patients we have treated here in New Jersey, have “significantly reduced–or even eliminated their neuropathic pain.”

How the Calmare MC-5A technology can significantly lessen treatment-resistant lumbar and sciatic 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.

Calmare Therapy can significantly reduce or even eliminate chronic back pain as a result of nerve damage.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?

Calmare can lessen chronic pain in the back and sciatica

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.

Pets are Welcome at Calmare Therapy NJ USA

February 10, 2019

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

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.

Only Calmare Therapy NJ USA Supports Calmare with Diagnostic BrainSpan

Don’t give up. Keep fighting. The solution to your pain is close at hand.
