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

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.

She started her treatment with a pain level of 9/10 and seven treatments later she was at a zero!!

We cannot thank this amazing, kind wonderful man enough!!!

Dr. Cooney will forever hold a huge part of our hearts.”

Natalie Overcomes CRPS Symptoms with Calmare Pain Therapy

July 19, 2019

Twenty-year old Natalie from New York was diagnosed with CRPS after an ankle sprain seven months ago.

What began as ankle pain steadily spread to chronic nerve pain throughout her entire leg.

As a result, she walked with a limp and was only able to wear sneakers.

As her condition spread, she underwent an aggressive regime of pain management efforts, which she describes in the video below.

Her pain continued, unrelently.

Natalie’s mother refused to give up.

She took to the internet in search of alternative medicine options which were drug-free and offered positive patient outcomes.

While searching ‘CRPS treatment,’ she came across an article by our clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney, and consulted with him by phone with Natalie.

Natalie describes her outcome after 10 scrambler therapy treatments in this video.

Teenager Snowboards By for a Post-Calmare Scrambler Therapy Update

February 28, 2019

Last summer, high school football player Austin arrived at our clinic using a cane and could not put weight on his leg/foot.

After surgery for a fractured fibula, he was soon diagnosed with CRPS which caused continued shooting pain; over time small treatment-resistant lesions began to develop on his affected foot (center image).

His family had read about our success treating these lesions and resulting chronic nerve pain from complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) using scrambler therapy.

They flew with Austin from the Southwest for him to undergo treatment and he achieved both pain relief and the lesions on his foot were more than 50% healed after his 2-week treatment (image on right).

Teen Football Star Finds CRPS Pain Relief After Calmare Therapy

Last week, Austin’s parents took the time to let us know how Austin is doing since his scrambler therapy:

Dr. Cooney,
Austin is doing wonderful. It has been a 180 since Calmare treatment, we are ever so grateful to you. Below is a video of him snowboarding!!!! Thank you again for all you do!
Forever Grateful,
Isabel, Duke and Austin 

 

Rob Chooses Scrambler Therapy Over Ketamine and Spinal Stimulator to Combat CRPS

February 25, 2019

After seven unsuccessful surgeries trying to lessen his post-surgical CRPS neuropathy, pain management doctors recommended Ketamine or a spinal cord stimulator to control his pain.

Rob, a 42-year-old electrician from New Jersey, was living with a consistent 7/10 on the pain scale.

With limited mobility, he was eventually unable to perform the work he loved.

His pain management team ultimately recommended he undergo Ketamine infusions or have a spinal stimulator (SCS) implanted into his back to control his chronic pain.

He refused both options.

Instead, he chose to undergo drug-free, non-invasive Calmare scrambler therapy with Dr. Michael Cooney:

Calmare scrambler therapy has no side effects and is painless to undergo.

It is cleared by the FDA in the USA.

Virginia Finds Chronic Pain Relief with Calmare after Spinal Cord Stimulator Fails to Lessen Her Chronic Pain

How Does Calmare Work?

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

This process “tricks” the brain that the area of pain is normal and eventually results in prolonged pain relief.

This non-invasive technology has successfully treated thousands of patients in the U.S. and Europe, where the therapy has been shown to be effective in relieving and minimizing pain and physical symptoms as a result of several treatment-resistant neuropathic conditions.

Chronic pain conditions which may be suitable for scrambler therapy.

Schedule Your Phone or Video Consultation with Clinical Director Dr. Michael Cooney

If you have a similar chronic pain challenge and living with medication and treatment-resistant nerve pain, Dr. Cooney would be happy to offer his assessment about the potential viability of Calmare Therapy in your case.

Calmare is not right for everyone and Dr. Cooney will not perform the therapy on any patient unless he determines there is a high probability of pain relief success.

Emily Hewatt Checks in Two Years Since Her Calmare Therapy

October 17, 2018

Emily Hewatt is a wonderful young woman who gained global attention in her quest to find a pain management solution for the CRPS she had been battling for four years. The pain and side effects of the disease had kept her inside, unable to enjoy a true quality of life.

She had foot surgery in 2012 and the symptoms of CRPS began about a month after the operation. Her condition and pain region continued to expand from her lower extremities up the right side of her body.

Due to extreme sensitivity in her foot and leg, she eventually required the support of a wheelchair full-time. In addition, she has not been able to wear shoes on her feet for years.

Discovering a new treatment for CRPS from a fellow Aussie

She discovered Calmare through another woman from Australia who had achieved life-changing pain relief. Her quest to raise the funds began, attracting media attention:

After her successful pain management outcome with us in 2016, almost two years to the day, she left us pain-free and without the need of a wheelchair.

The severity of her CRPS condition will require lifelong healthcare maintenance, which Emily recently shared and generously permitted us to share with you.

Emi sends a update on her health two years after scrambler therapy

Excerpt:

It has been two years since I was so humbly blessed with tremendous generosity and support which allowed me to be further blessed by the caring hands of Dr. Cooney and his team.

It was a very scary and daunting adventure traveling from our tiny town in North East Victoria, Australia halfway around the world to Rutherford, New Jersey, USA in search of a pain management treatment for my CRPS.

My treatment outcome was life-changing, to say the least. I left New Jersey without any pain, without the need of a wheelchair. It was just unbelievable.

Emily Hewatt returns from treatment in New Jersey pain-free

For the first two weeks post treatment I did as I was told and did nothing but rest and recover.

On the 15th day however, we had to execute a charity trail ride we had organized months earlier. After four years of excruciating pain forcing me bound within the walls of our home. It was my first full day out and walking!

Until later that night when we got home and my body was on fire and I was back in my wheelchair just to get inside from the car, I could barely move.

That was when I realized that even though I had felt amazing–with no pain since the Calmare treatment–that I still had CRPS and needed to manage it.

Emi’s mother, Dr. Cooney and Emi

So that has been the underlying theme of my life, to keep myself feeling as good as possible and as often as possible, and I’d say I am doing pretty well at it.

This drove home for me how important, especially now, it was to take care of myself, which is how we eventually came across Calmare Therapy or scrambler therapy as we now know it as in Australia.

My philosophy is do whatever you need to do to feel better.

Now two years since my Calmare Therapy,

I don’t really think about the CRPS all that

much—even after enduring four years of constant pain.

I have learned how to live my life so when I do get pain and become symptomatic from time to time, it’s not a big deal. I have all the tools, like the scrambler therapy, and knowledge I need to manage it.

The only one who truly knows me and knows what is right for me is me.

So thank you, Dr. Cooney, and your team and everyone who has shared their generosity and support with me.

Only I will ever truly know how much you all have given back to me.

Emi Hewatt, North East Victoria, Australia

Laura Ready to ‘Live Life’ Again after Full Body CRPS

August 2, 2018

In 2011, Laura injured the ball of her foot in a random accident.

In her powerful message of hope and fortitude below, she describes what happened to her chronic pain after 10 Calmare Therapy treatments, performed by clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney at Calmare Therapy NJ USA, after living with CRPS for seven long years:
