Free Calmare NJ Consultation and Treatment Nov. – Dec. 2020

New patients receive one 35-minute treatment at no charge

People seeking pain relief for medication and treatment-resistant chronic nerve pain will receive a first-time-ever free Calmare Therapy®  treatment, if they undergo the 10-treatment therapy protocol during Nov. – Dec. 2020.

“We hope this savings will help children, teens, adults and seniors make the decision to try an alternative therapy to reduce or eliminate their chronic nerve pain,” says Calmare NJ USA clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney.

In addition, new patients also receive a pre-treatment consultation, either by phone or in-person. During this discussion, patients have a firsthand opportunity to ask questions about scrambler therapy, including the customized treatment strategy for the placement of each Calmare lead.

Calmare Therapy (scrambler therapy) is an FDA-cleared alternative pain management therapy to lessen or reduce medication and treatment-resident chronic pain for children (age 10+), adolescents, adults and seniors.

The therapy is a non-invasive, painless treatment that is drug-free and has no side effects.

Regardless of pain level and physical symptoms, several neuropathic conditions can be significantly reduced—or even alleviated—after a series of 10 Calmare treatments, once per day.

Since 2011, Dr.  Cooney has personally treated more than 1,000 patients from the U.S. and around the world suffering from chronic, high-intensity neuropathic pain.

He is one of only seven Certified Calmare doctors in the United States (2020).

Why Calmare is a radically different pain treatment

Calmare is a new therapy for chronic pain

When someone is injured, the brain sets up a process to heal the injury. For example, cells carry away dead tissue or it increases blood flow to the area. Eventually, the brain realizes the injury has healed and it cuts off the pain message.

But for some, the brain never sends that pivotal message saying “there’s no more injury here so you can stop the pain signal.”

That’s where the scrambler device comes in. Using several small electrodes (think an EKG) carefully placed in the region of the injury, the technology sends a mild “no pain” message to the brain through the electrodes.

Essentially, the scrambler machine “overrides” the brain’s confused message and corrects it to the ‘no pain here” message.

How Do I Set-Up My Calmare consultation?

Potential scrambler therapy patients should follow these four easy steps below: (feel free to reach out to us with questions!):

  1.  Review the Calmare NJ USA website to understand how scrambler therapy can relieve severe chronic nerve pain.
  2. Read or watch a few video testimonials by more than 75 patients who have shared their Calmare NJ USA treatment experiences on our Case Studies page and our YouTube channel.
  3. Contact the Calmare NJ USA clinic to schedule your in-person (we follow CDC guidelines for COVID-19 safety precautions) video or phone consultation. During this you will speak personally with Dr. Cooney about your medical history, previous pain relief efforts, current medication use and your pain management goals.
  4. If you and Dr. Cooney mutually agree to proceed with treatment, your 10-day therapy cycle will be scheduled, beginning on a Monday, and held at the same time each day, for two weeks (10 business days).

For questions, please email our Calmare team at info@calmaretherapynj.com or call our clinic directly at (201) 933-4440.

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.

Calmare Keeps Tonya’s CRPS from Spreading

March 23, 2018

Tonya Schuler, a full-of-life fitness trainer from West Virginia, was diagnosed with CRPS after carpal tunnel surgery. The chronic pain started in one hand and soon spread to the other.

From there, the neuropathy affected her neck, back and stomach.

After trying a myriad of prescription pain drugs, injections and invasive procedures, her pain management doctor eventually recommended she have a spinal cord stimulator (SCS) surgically implanted into her back.

“When I realized an SCS was the final treatment option, I knew I had to take matters into my own (painful) hands and reach out to the CRPS community,” explains.

“A Facebook group that included thousands of other sufferers consistently mentioned Dr. Cooney and Calmare for helping reduce their pain, even for full-body sufferers.”

“Beyond Opiates, The Future of Pain Management” (WebMD)

Tonya says she sent off an email to him (calmarenj@gmail.com) and he called her the next day.

Teenager is Pain-Free Again After Calmare Booster Treatments

January 22, 2018

Evan Wasser_2018
While Evan receives his Calmare Therapy treatment, our pet therapy dog Murphy keeps him company.

Thirteen-year-old Evan, from a mid-Atlantic state, underwent Calmare Therapy for CRPS, which he was diagnosed with after an elbow injury.

When he arrived at our New Jersey clinic last summer, the teenager was experiencing a chronic pain level of 8/10 from his hand to his shoulder.

Thankfully, after undergoing 10 scrambler therapy sessions, performed by clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney, he achieved a 0/10 pain-free state and returned home to start school.

A Re-Injury Triggers CRPS Symptoms

Unfortunately, he re-injured the elbow months later and his CRPS pain was all-too-happy to rear its ugly head once again.

But Evan’s family brought him back to us to undergo three Calmare booster treatments, which quickly brought his pain level back down to 0 once again.

“Some patients need booster treatments periodically if the pain level increases or there is a re-injury,” Dr. Cooney explains. “Evan’s parents acted quickly and brought him to the clinic, which helped us to reduce his pain and will hopefully sustain it.”

At Calmare Therapy NJ USA, we treat many children and teen patients who are battling chronic nerve pain, most commonly as a result of CRPS and fibromyalgia.

In 70 – 80% of patients, we achieve a significant lessening of pain or, in Evan’s case, send the patient home pain-free.

Especially valuable for pediatric patients,

Calmare has no side-effects, is drug-free,

non-invasive and painless.

August 2, 2017

We received a great question from a family coming to New Jersey for Calmare scrambler therapy next week from California–

Of the hundreds of posts we’ve published since we introduced Calmare in 2011, we’ve never shared a list of suggested items to bring with you:

Fear not, problem solved below–

We like to think that our patients and their loved ones will be enthralled by our daily good humor, great looks and professional expertise, but just in case, here are some items that we recommend you bring along to your treatments to make you more comfortable:

Emily is Pain-Free from CRPS for the First Time in Six Years

April 4, 2017

We have great admiration for patients and their families who take their chronic pain stories to the media.

Their efforts provide a personal view about the stress and frustration of dealing with chronic nerve pain while highlighting the fact that opioids and implanted devices often don’t alleviate or even lessen the pain.

You may recall, we recently shared an article about a young woman from Indiana who battled CRPS for six long years, without finding a pain solution.

Her family finally decided to seek out alternative pain treatment solutions and discovered Dr. Cooney’s success using Calmare scrambler therapy.

Emily is pain-free from CRPS for the first since she was 10-years-old

Emily just completed 10 daily scrambler therapy treatments last Friday.

We are elated to report that she left us pain-free for the first time in six long years!

Her mother shared this message on Facebook:

“I just wanted to give everyone an update on Emily and her treatment.

Emily finished 10 Calmare treatments yesterday and she is pain-free!
It is the first time in 6 years that we can say this!!

God is Good!!

For those of you wondering if she is permanently out of pain, the answer is we don’t know. Everyone with CRPS responds differently to treatment. Some people have gone into remission and others have the pain come back. For those who have the pain come back, they usually go back for booster treatment.

Here is the information for those who are interested in Calmare Scrambler Therapy.

I recommend going to see Dr. Cooney as he has a high success rate treating CRPS.

Emi Hewatt’s successful Calmare treatment story

You may recall another young woman with similar circumstances, Emi Hewatt, who also shared her RSD battle with the media last year:

Emi Hewatt Comes from Australia to Calmare Therapy NJ USA for (Successful!) CRPS Treatment

Based upon the posts and messages we see from Emi, she continues to do well and has resumed the normal activities of any young woman.

Emi Hewatt Heads Back to Australia After Successful CRPS Treatment

October 14, 2016

emi-hewatt-having-calmare-treatment-_10-16You may recall The Border Mail newspaper article which addressed Emi’s four-year battle with CRPS and her effort to raise funds to come to New Jersey, USA from Corryong, Australia to undergo Calmare Therapy, performed by Dr. Michael Cooney, our clinical director.

Emi’s medical history may sound familiar to some of you–

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.

After a year spent fundraising, Emi arrives in New Jersey

She arrived here two weeks ago, after the arduous 24-hour flight and we immediately began daily scrambler therapy treatments. Steadily, Emi began to experience a lessening of pain with each passing day along with improved mobility.

The young Aussie buys her first pair of shoes in years during her Calmare Therapy treatment in New Jersey, USA.

Emi responded after treatment #5 that she wanted to go shopping for a pair of shoes. Then she began walking without the need of her wheelchair.

We’ll let Emi share her outcome via her Facebook post after her final Calmare treatment:


“Well tonight is our last night here in the U.S., we fly home tomorrow. I ended up having another treatment yesterday and today. I only had a very very slight amount of pain but thought I would make the most of Calmare while I am here and I am glad I did! We NEED this Calmare treatment in Australia! It’s unbelievable how amazing it works. Before we came we were a bit sceptical and thought it was toogood to be true but after experiencing the amazing results for myself I can’t believe Australia is so behind.

I don’t want to leave! I want to stay here with Calmare NJ and the Calmare machine forever.

Thank you so much to Dr Cooney for giving me and many other CRPS suffers our lives back. You, Barb and Cathy are just beautiful!

The Purple Bucket Foundation are still working hard to get Calmare into Australia. We currently have a ‘my cause’ campaign going to get the machine registered with the Therapeutic Good Administration:  https://www.mycause.com.au/page/138433/bring-scrambler-to-australia

Can’t wait to get home and give everyone a big proper cuddle for the first time in 4 years!!

😘😘


A drug-free, alternative treatment for chronic pain, with no side effects

Considering the Herculean effort Emi and her family made to come to us for treatment, we hoped and prayed that she would achieve a successful outcome. (Scrambler therapy is not a panacea and does not work for everyone. Some patients have extenuating health issues beyond the chronic pain condition, some have been misdiagnosed and some disappointing outcomes are unexplained).

Emi’s mother, Dr. Cooney and Emi say goodbye.

While we are filled to capacity this week, it’s going to be a little quiet around here now that Emi has headed back Down Under. But we are absolutely elated that she’s going home to enjoy a vastly improved quality of life, starting with the newfound ability to hug her loved ones again, without feeling any pain.

Peggy Squashes RSD Hand Pain from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

May 12, 2016
Peggy Letcher_husband_Cathy

Our beloved Calmare scheduler and front desk administrator, Cathy (center) is shown with Peggy and her husband Tim who were with us for two weeks from New Mexico.

Since 2010, Peggy has been battling RSD in her left arm and hand after a carpal tunnel syndrome diagnosis.

She first came to us last October for 10-treatments and left pain-free for the first time in six years. Due to the severity and longevity of her RSD, low-grade pain returned this spring.

_________________________

Watch Peggy’s video diary here

__________________________

Before it could worsen, she and Tim came back for Calmare booster treatments, which may be needed if the pain returns.

Besides taking time to visit New York City (10 minutes from the office), they also ventured to Philly (under two hours) and Boston (about four hours) during their time here.

Peggy again achieved a pain-free state and is looking forward to heading back to their ranch with full use of her hand and arm.

As time goes on, patients who require scrambler therapy boosters generally need them less frequently. Some patients require only a single 35-minute booster treatment, while other need more sessions.

Are you battling carpal tunnel syndrome or another chronic pain condition?

Our Calmare Therapy team here in New Jersey would be happy to discuss our program and learn more about your medical history and pain management goals. Call us at 201-933-4440, email us at CalmareNJ@gmail.com or complete the Information E-card below:
