Calmare NJ USA Opens Summer Appointment Schedule

April 27, 2021

As travel opportunities continue to reopen worldwide, we are now scheduling appointments for new patients and booster treatment appointments beginning mid-June-July 2021.

The Calmare team, including Dr. Michael Cooney, is fully vaccinated against Covid-19. We continue to support all the virus prevention guidelines recommended by the CDC.

We will continue to schedule one patient in the clinic at a time as a precautionary measure. Doing so does reduce the number of daily appointments, so please reach out promptly.

Calmare NJ USA clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney and patient.

No fee phone consultations are required for all potential patients. We request that people interested in pursuing Calmare first learn more about the therapy on these web pages prior to scheduling your consultation.

What is Calmare?

How Does Calmare Work?

What Types of Chronic Pain May Be Suitable for Calmare Therapy?

When new/future patients have some basic understanding about how non-invasive scrambler therapy is performed–and how it can lessen or eliminate chronic pain–helps us focus our discussion more specifically on the exact nature of your neuropathy and understand your pain management goals after therapy.

Any essential reason for this consultation, which is held only with our clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney, is because Calmare is not right for everyone.

We will not treat patients for whom Dr. Cooney does not feel there is a high probability of pain reduction after scrambler therapy treatments.

If you would like to schedule a new consultation or booster treatments, please complete the quick form below, and we’ll get back to you within 48 hours of receipt of your message. If you prefer to call our New Jersey clinic, please reach out at (201) 933-4440 between 10 am and 5 pm weekdays.

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.

Dr. Cooney and Patient Interviewed for New CRPS Book

August 31, 2020

Clinical Director, Dr. Michael Cooney, who has successfully treated hundreds of people living with CRPS since 2011 using Calmare scrambler therapy, is featured in a new book on the topic:

COMPLEX REGIONAL PAIN SYNDROME (CRPS): PATIENTS’ PERSPECTIVE OF LIVING IN CHRONIC PAIN.

The book is co-written by pain management physician Dr. Alaa Abd-Elsayed and Eric M. Phillips, president of the International RSD Foundation.

Dr. Abd-Elsayed cited Dr. Michael Cooney and Calmare Therapy in his new book for sale on Amazon.
Dr. Alaa Abd-Elsayed

Dr. Abd-Elsayed is a noted chronic pain physician who has published more than 100 peer-reviewed manuscripts, presented more than 200 presentations on the national and international level, written dozens of book chapters and serves on the editorial board of several pain management medical journals. He is a longtime chronic pain advocate.

 

Thus far, the CRPS book is receiving positive reviews from readers, achieving nearly a 5-star rating:

“This is such a candid view of CRPS from the standpoint of many different people affected by this debilitating disease. So useful to see how other people have dealt with and managed this disease. Dr. Al and Eric did a wonderful job putting together this collaboration of patients trying to help others. If you or a family member have this disease, this book is a useful tool in understanding CRPS. Thank you to all of the authors in this book. Substantial Book.”

Calmare NJ USA Patient Outcome Cited

One of our teen patients, Austin, is featured. His parents describe his significant pain relief (and leg lesion healing) after Calmare Therapy and booster treatments:

We are grateful to Austin’s family, who volunteered to share their family’s story and Austin’s positive outcome after Calmare Therapy.

Austin did return months later for three scrambler therapy booster treatments, which may be necessary for more severe or prolonged cases of chronic nerve pain.

He shared an update from the mountains (where he was snowboarding!) in February 2019:

Teenager Snowboards By for a Post-Calmare Scrambler Therapy Update

Austin and Dr. Michael Cooney celebrate his success after undergoing Calmare scrambler for CRPS.

“I was honored to be included in a truly comprehensive book about the challenges faced by so many courageous people around the world living with CRPS,” says Dr. Cooney.

“It is vitally important that sufferers understand that drugs and invasive procedures are not the only way to reduce pain from this disease.”

Real Men Have Chronic Pain Too

men with chronic pain

June is Men’s Health Month, and an ideal time for us to highlight that countless men of all ages also battle chronic pain.

Too many guys think they have to ‘tough it out’ and suffer in silence, often for years.

Since we began offering Calmare scrambler therapy in 2011, we have treated males with chronic pain as a result of injury, surgery or medical condition from ages 11 to nearly 80.

We’ve treated many men who lived with neuropathy for years, believing they could ‘fight through the pain’ or that it would eventually become more manageable.

Unfortunately, neuropathy is not acute, like a cold, and it will not naturally resolve itself over time.

From our clinical experience, the longer one lives with chronic pain, or it is left untreated, the more prolonged the pain management process (pain alleviation) can be.

Clinical studies have also found that men with chronic pain tend to battle depression and anxiety issues.

If you’re a male and plagued by chronic nerve pain, first and foremost, you are not alone.

Secondly, contact your healthcare provider to discuss pharmaceutical and other pain management therapy options.

Emphasize that you are seeking non-invasive pain treatment options first. If your pain level is manageable,  you may wish to forego pain medication.

Monitor your results and speak up promptly if you don’t experience pain relief or have adverse side effects to the medication or treatment protocol.

If traditional medication and pain therapy has not lessened or resolved your pain, please feel free to reach out to me personally to discuss your case.

Calmare Therapy is FDA-cleared, drug-free, has no side effects and is painless to undergo.

Electrician Chooses Calmare Over Ketamine and Spinal Stimulator for Chronic Pain

December 17, 2019

After seven unsuccessful surgeries trying to lessen his post-surgical CRPS, pain management doctors eventually recommended Rob undergo Ketamine infusions or have a spinal cord stimulator implanted in his spine.

I’m honored to say this electrician said ‘no thanks’ to both options and chose Calmare Therapy.

He shares his experience below:
