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.

Calmare Therapy’s Longtime Friendship with Burning Nights CRPS

September 18, 2020

By Dr. Michael Cooney, Clinical Director


We began using Calmare scrambler therapy to combat CRPS in 2011. It all came about by coincidence–

For those of you with medication and treatment-resistant chronic pain, you can appreciate the tremendous frustration when traditional drugs and other mainstream pain management efforts fail to relieve or reduce your pain.

“Where do I turn when the pain management community has no more options left to help me manage my pain?”

This frustration and fear, to be honest, led some CRPS sufferers to contact me about the viability of using Calmare Therapy to combat CRPS/ RSD pain–and the many physical symptoms which often accompany this disease.

After discussing each CRPS patient’s full medical history, analyzing their previous therapy efforts, reviewing past and present medications, and evaluating pain level fluctuations, I felt comfortable that we could proceed with caution and closely monitor results.

The risk to trying Calmare was minimal–the FDA-cleared pain therapy has no side effects, is painless to undergo and completely non-invasive.

The single risk is that the therapy will not work.

Meet Amanda from Indiana, one of our first RSD patients

After Amanda, then a teenager, and her family took a gamble on Calmare Therapy, Amanda’s pain relief was so significant, she was able to:

  • Return to in-person high school
  • Go on to college and graduate
  • Marry the love of her life

(Note that Amanda did return over the years for a few Calmare booster treatments, when her pain level began to climb. After the boosters, her pain level returned to a steady 0-3).

After sharing Amanda’s reduction in chronic pain on our website and YouTube channel, people from around the world, who were also battling CRPS, began to come to our clinic for treatment.

Connecting with the Burning Nights CRPS organization in the UK

We have been fortunate to be supported by Burning Nights CRPS, a UK-based resource for people and families dealing with CRPS.

They offer a remarkable wealth of resources for people around the world with the aim of “helping to improve the quality of life for every CRPS sufferer around the world.”

In 2017, we were fortunate to welcome the organization’s founder, also a CRPS warrior, Victoria Abbott-Fleming, to our clinic for a tour and a demonstration of scrambler therapy.

Victoria, seated, founder of Burning Nights, and her husband, left, visited our clinic for a wonderful visit. Dr. Cooney is also shown with Star, a CRPS patient from Alabama, and her husband.

Today, we continue to support each other’s efforts. In fact, Burning Nights features a detailed description of Calmare on its Alternative Therapies for CRPS page.

Visit Burning Nights CRPS to learn more about Calmare Therapy

In addition to a wealth of support and resource information available, I have written several articles that offer my personal insight into the benefits of scrambler therapy:

CRPS warriors are never alone

With the advancement of organizations like Burning Nights CRPS, people who are battling this chronic condition with currently no cure, can always find guidance and advice from doctors, experts, fellow warriors and their families.

CRPS warrior, you are never alone.

For the time being, while we await relief from COVID-19, online support networks can also offer a kind listening ear, fresh ideas, or just a gentle virtual hug on a bad day.

If you would like to discuss if Calmare might be right for you, please call our clinic and I will be happy to speak with you personally.

As a reminder, people in the US are permitted to enter New Jersey for pre-scheduled medical treatment, even if they come from a Travel Advisory state. Learn more: https://calmaretherapynj.com/2020/08/17/calmare-nj-accept-patients-from-travel-advisory-states/

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.

More Healthcare Providers Turn to Calmare for Chronic Pain Treatment

September 1, 2020 – Update from Andrea

Via email to Dr. Cooney (yes, we request ongoing updates from you after treatment!)

Hi Dr. Cooney!

Not being in that horrible pain is such a wonderful thing! I have been able to do most things now like I used to. I’ve been trying to strengthen my muscles by swimming almost daily, and I will be joining the gym on Tuesday to continue strengthening.

Tomorrow is my first day back to work! I have 8 hours shifts for the next 2 weeks and then 12 hour shifts start. I’m hoping to be able to pace myself and use medications during my shifts if needed.

I’ll keep in touch with you as time goes on! Thank you for everything!!!!”

Sincerely,

Andrea L. S., RN
PA


It means the world to us when healthcare providers put their expertise and trust in Calmare scrambler therapy and clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney to treat their chronic pain.

Andrea, a bright and talented registered nurse from PA, has battled CRPS since 2017, after a simple fall in her driveway at home.

After her diagnosis of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS),  she was eventually unable to work, living with a consistent pain level of 8/9 daily.

After six Calmare treatments, Andrea’s CRPS pain level has reduced from an 8/9 to 1–and we aren’t done yet!

Clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney will perform four more Calmare treatments (10 scrambler therapy treatments is the typical protocol) to fortify the pain reduction with the goal of achieving a sustained pain-free level.

Our goal is to send Andrea home pain-free and with plans for her to get back to work and resume the work that is her passion–helping others.

“Andrea will follow our Calmare NJ USA-specific post-treatment protocol and rest as much as possible,” Dr. Cooney notes. “If she feels ready, I can foresee her returning to nursing in about a month.”

What is a ‘Provider Dependent’ Therapy?

October 23, 2019

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

Calmare Certified Location Logo

The ultimate success of your Calmare Therapy depends on several variables.

In my opinion, other than being correctly pre-qualified as a patient candidate, the doctor administering the scrambler therapy will have a critical impact on your overall pain management success.

Therefore, your Calmare provider must have extensive expertisetraining and clinical skill to accurately diagnose the precise location of the original pain site/s and set the MC-5A Calmare technology accurately to support pain relief.

Four key Calmare provider responsibilities:

  1. Strategically positioning each of the scrambler therapy leads on the patient in accordance with the original injury and current pain regions
  2. Setting, overseeing and adjusting the device settings during each of the 10 treatments
  3. Managing and responding to ongoing patient feedback
  4. Monitoring day-by-day pain management levels based on patient input.

 I will be your Calmare provider, 100 percent of the time, from start to finish ─ no assistants, no support staff. 

The placement of the leads (patches), attached to each of the algorithms, as you can see below, must be precisely positioned in order to successfully alleviate the nerve pain.

If these leads are placed in the wrong area, this lessens the overall capability of the Calmare MC-5A technology to optimally perform its job of lowering your pain and lessening any related physical symptoms.

As a Calmare provider since 2011, I have treated more than 1,000 patients from around the world–successfully.

I have also served as an expert Trainer for new doctors introducing Calmare.

This is a responsibility I take very seriously.

What to look for in your Calmare provider

Clinical Director Dr. Michael Cooney places the scrambler therapy leads on a CRPS patient.

The most experienced Calmare Therapy providers have received a careful review and on-site examination by the company’s administrators, who may or may not designate the top providers as Calmare Certified.

I strongly encourage you to seek out these providers for your therapy.

Secondly, ask the provider you are considering how many patients they have treated with your specific chronic pain condition ─ back and neck pain, post-surgical pain, RSD / CRPS / fibromyalgia, pain after chemotherapy, diabetic neuropathy, etc.

Your Calmare technology will be most successful when your chosen provider has advanced expertise in the placement of each lead.

Finally, peruse the internet and read reviews about the provider you are considering.

Get firsthand information about what scrambler therapy is really like by connecting directly with our previous patients.

Speak with Our Calmare Therapy Clients

At Calmare NJ USA, we offer an exclusive program called the Patient-2-Patient program, where you can be in contact with one of our previous patients who has a similar medical condition to your own.

Who better to share their Calmare treatment experiences than our own patients?

Anyone choosing Calmare should ensure the treatment is performed by a healthcare professional specially-trained in the diagnosis and treatment of several types of advanced neuropathy.

As a friendly reminder, I am happy to speak with people living with treatment-resistant chronic pain anytime. Feel free to call my office at (201) 933-4440 or email us at info@calmaretherapynj.com.

Wishing you and your loved ones a low pain day.
