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.

Calmare Treats Neuropathic and Chronic Low Back and Leg Pain

Dr. Michael J. Cooney _2015_headshotApril 18, 2016

Dr. Michael Cooney’s article below was published by Spine Universe:

Scrambler Therapy Treats Neuropathic and Chronic Low Back and Leg Pain

spine-universe logo“Neuropathic pain is a complex type of chronic back and/or leg pain (eg, sciatica) usually caused by nerve injury. When a nerve is damaged it may not be able to transmit messages completely or correctly between the injury site and the brain.

Neuropathic pain is persistent and is sometimes described as unrelenting, although the intensity and characteristics (eg, dull, sharp, shock-like) of pain may change throughout the day and night.

Scrambler Technology for Neuropathic Pain

Scrambler technology (Calmare® Pain Therapy Treatment) is a non-invasive therapy that treats neuropathic and chronic pain by surface electro-stimulation.

Calmare leads on back 2_2014Electrode patches are precisely placed on the appropriate skin area, but not directly on the painful area. Rather, the electrode patches are placed on one or more dermatomes (an area of skin served by the fibers of a single spinal nerve root).

Precise Biophysical Electro-Stimulation

Each electrode patch is connected to the scrambler device by a thin cable. At Calmare Therapy New Jersey, (only) clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney controls the administration of low doses of electro-stimulation delivered through the patches. The therapy scrambles the pain messages transmitted between the pain site and the brain.”

A Little Pet Therapy Never Hurts

MurphyLast week my family was away so I brought Murphy, my own little pet therapy, to the office.

As many of you know, I’m a big proponent of pets and their ability to calm the mind and lessen the pain.

If my wife will let me, I plan to bring him back to the office now and then as he was a big hit with our Calmare patients. ‪

Calmare scrambler therapy helps two women with CRPS, ages 87 and 16

Eighty-seven-year-old Ann from the Jersey Shore and Katie, age 16, suffered the same complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) symptoms at different stages of life. But both were determined to resume a quality of life no longer dictated by chronic pain and the physical symptoms of this disease.

Every patient that we treat here in New Jersey who is fighting back against neuropathic pain as a result of a plethora of diseases or injuries, teaches us something new about the enormous potential of this therapy.

We put together this quick video that highlights both women’s journeys and their positive outcomes.

Ann is a “tell it like it is” senior who is sharp as a tack. Katie is so articulate and intelligent. We are so pleased that since her treatment here, she will be returning to school for the first time in more than a year.

No matter where you may be on the age spectrum, Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment may be a viable solution to get your life back on track and helping you enjoy the quality of life you so richly deserve.

Calmare found to reduce low back pain after university clinical trial

national institutes of health logoLast week, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, also known as the ‘nation’s medical research agency’, reported findings from a Virginia Commonwealth University School of Nursing clinical trial which showed that showed that the use of Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment (scrambler therapy) as a drug-free treatment to lessen or eliminate low back pain yielded impressive results:

The Institute reported on January 8, 2015 that:

  • Thirty participants were randomized to receive up to 10 sessions of Calmare® treatment (n = 15) or a ‘sham’ treatment (n = 15) using the same device at a non-therapeutic threshold.
  • 3 weeks after conclusion of treatment series, compared with the sham group, the Calmare® group reported a significant decrease in the “worst” pain and interference scores.
  • There were also significant differences in pain sensitivity and differential expression of 17 pain genes, suggesting that Calmare® can be effective in reducing pain intensity and interference in individuals with persistent low back pain by altering the mechanisms of enhanced pain sensitivity.

This is outstanding news reported by an organization affiliated with the federal government. Might someone on the NIH team have become aware of Calmare’s effectiveness as a result of its expanded use in the largest U.S. Military hospitals across the globe?

Calmare Therapy can help lessen or eliminate several types of neuropathic pain with none of the unpleasant costs or side effects associated with painkillers (opioids).

Often, the out-of-pocket charges for Calmare Therapy are comparable to those patients must incur for their various medications for pain.

ClinicalTrials.gov processed this record on January 12, 2015.
