Abby Uses Calmare Therapy to Prepare for Her Prom

March 29, 2019

Abby from Vermont was here this week for three booster treatments.

The teenager and her family first came to us in 2015 when Abby’s CRPS was uncontrolled and spreading.

Now age 17 and getting ready for her first prom (gasp), she arrived at a 4/5 pain level in her leg.

Her motivation?

“Abby didn’t want to attend her prom with any chronic pain.”

Three sessions later, she left pain-free again.

Why Calmare Scrambler Therapy Can be Ideal for Treating Pediatric Neuropathy

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.

While many patients never need further scrambler therapy, more advanced stages or prolonged or severe neuropathy, one or more boosters can be extremely useful against an elevation in pain.

What to Do if Your Neuropathic Pain Level Returns or Increases

Calmare patients who experience a recurrence of pain should document when the pain returns, subsides and what environmental issues were involved (stress, weather conditions, excessive use of the affected area) or if there was no specific cause for the elevation of pain.

We hope the lucky fellow who has the honor of taking this young lady to the dance appreciates how special she truly is!

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

Calmare Therapy NJ USA Expands Again

September 10, 2018

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney Clinical Director

Calmare Certified Provider

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

I’ve been in the pain management field since Gerald Ford was president. Over the course of my career, I’ve seen countless pain management therapies and pain medications come and go.

During all of those years, I’ve never seen patient outcomes come anywhere close to what we have achieved with Calmare scrambler therapy.

Calmare NJ USA Patient Testimonials on YouTube

Since we introduced “the scrambler” in 2011, we have watched children, teens, adults and seniors’ lives transformed by its uncanny ability to reduce or eliminate chronic pain (neuropathy).

We have been able to help people who had already tried all the drugs, the invasive therapies, the painful procedures and the failed surgeries, without success.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think people in pain would travel to us for treatment from Australia, South Africa, South America, Europe and Canada.

Over 25% of Americans with Chronic Pain Affected by High Impact Chronic Pain (MD Magazine)

After careful thought and consideration, I have decided to close our physical therapy and chiropractic practice to free up my time to help more people fighting chronic pain as a result of:

* Surgery
* Cancer treatment (CIPN)
* Shingles (PHN)
* CRPS
* Fibromyalgia
* Diabetic neuropathy
* Other nerve pain conditions

Don’t get me wrong–scrambler therapy doesn’t work wonders for everyone, unfortunately. It is not a miracle treatment and you’ll never hear me say that it is.

But in the majority of people I have treated,
the pain reduction results have been life-changing.

So starting today, we will be able to help more people, provide quicker service and offer a broader range of appointments.

If you’re ready to try a newer way to fight pain, you’ve come to the right place.

Here’s to winning the war on pain, one patient at a time.

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:

July 20, 2018

We have been friendly partners with Victoria and her team from the UK who created and manage Burning Nights CRPS, a global resource for education, support and resources for people around the world battling complex regional pain syndrome.

Since 2015, the web-based organization has published educational pieces about drug-free CRPS pain management options, including Calmare Scrambler therapy.

This week, the highly-respected organization published Dr. Michael Cooney’s article “Fighting Back Against CRPS with Calmare Therapy,” which offers the doctor’s personal insight about why scrambler therapy has been so successful minimizing and even eliminating CRPS pain and physical symptoms.

He also shares some recent patient success stories, including a teenager from Scotland.

Burning Nights CRPS Founder Victoria Abbott-Fleming Visits Calmare Therapy NJ Clinic

We hope you will visit Burning Nights, if you or a loved one is affected by complex regional pain syndrome to learn more, find support and discover valuable resources.

If you can contribute to their charity, even a little bit, all the better.

Meanwhile, we hope Dr. Cooney’s latest article,  provides insightful information to parents in search of drug-free, non-invasive treatment to lessen or eliminate their child’s chronic nerve pain.

Wishing you a low pain weekend!

CRPS Skin Blisters: Another Painful Side Effect

July 17, 2018

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

When complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is discussed, the primary focus is the extreme and widespread nerve pain caused by the disease.

The neuropathy can quickly affect mobility, being able to work or attend school, diminish socialization and decrease the overall quality of life.

In cases where the person’s CRPS has exacerbated over a long period of time, some people develop skin abnormalities which can take on varying presentations and can also cause a great deal of discomfort.

For some people, the skin issues result in blisters or lesions that do not heal.

CRPS Skin Manifestations

Approximately 71 percent of patients with CRPS for a duration of at least five years have skin manifestations in varying degrees of severity.

These skin changes usually present in the combination of a rash, mottling, cyanosis or erythema resulting in circular lesions generally up to one inch in diameter.

Some patients’ lesions appear as spontaneous recurring bruises which may or may not be near the pain site/s.

During the course of the condition, the skin can also become shiny and highly sensitive to touch, or even the wind.

Fingernails are ridged, thin, and break easily. Overall, there may also be eventual muscle atrophy (weakness).

In addition to CRPS-specific changes, patients may also experience often have concomitant venous stasis (slow blood flow in the veins, usually the legs), cellulitis (a bacterial infection under the skin surface characterized by redness, warmth, swelling and soreness), and skin ulceration.

Calmare’s Role in Healing Skin Lesions

I have performed Calmare Therapy since 2011. About 40 percent percent of our RSD / CRPS patients arrive at our clinic with some kind of skin abnormality.

The cause of these skin blisters / lesions or malformations is unclear, but my opinion is that they may be attributed to the ongoing result of brain misinterpretation or ongoing blood flow issues.

While we are not sure of the etiology, we have seen a surprisingly rapid decrease (healing) of these skin issues in CRPS patients for whom Calmare is successful.

As you can see from the examples below, the results are very significant after just a 2-week course of 10 Calmare Therapy treatment sessions.

Lauren Writes Letter of Thanks for Her Husband’s Calmare Therapy

May 29, 2018

Robert Vaughn adds his pin to the Calmare NJ USA patient map. May 2018

We were honored to receive this email message from Lauren Vaughn at the conclusion of her husband’s two-week Calmare protocol for CRPS (diagnosed in 2013). The couple generously permitted us to share it below.

“As we approach our last day with you, I wanted to send my sincere thank you!

It has been such a positive experience for my husband and myself! We have seen so much progress!

To see Robert live with 8 or 9 out of a scale of 10 pain level for the past 5+ years has been difficult, to say the least!

You have given us hope for the future!

Within the past two weeks we have observed his pain level decrease to a 3 out of 10! Unbelievable!

Not only is the treatment amazing, but Dr. Cooney and the staff have been such a joy to work with!

From the bottom of our hearts we will be forever grateful!

Thank you for giving our family hope again! Thank you again for your amazing partnership in Robert’s treatment and recovery.”

Quality of life is a gift that few can give and you have certainly given us that back!

Lauren Vaughn

Marilyn Checks in Two Years After Calmare Therapy

May 10, 2018

After failed foot surgery, Marilyn Green soon found herself facing a bigger challenge–a devastating CRPS diagnosis.

Two years later, she made us laugh out loud at this post (below) on our Facebook timeline:

chronic foot pain treatment

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Two years ago, I started my Calmare NJ Therapy.

Other than a “zinger” once in a while, I have been pain-free!

Thanks Dr. Cooney and staff.

I live life now!!! Hugs!

Marilyn Green

Are you tired of failed pain management treatments?

Dr. Michael Cooney, clinical director, speaks personally with potential scrambler therapy patients every day.

Like Marilyn, If you have been diagnosed with a neuropathy and have not achieved significant relief from medication or other therapies, drug-free, non-invasive Calmare Therapy may be a viable treatment option for you.

If you peruse dozens and dozens of our patient stories, you will see one common thread:

“I had just about given up finding a therapy to reduce or eliminate my debilitating pain.”

Joe is Cane-Free After Battling CRPS for Four Years

May 2, 2018

Calmare

Joe arrived from New York State two weeks ago, using a cane for mobility. His pain level was 8/9 due to a four-year battle with CRPS, after an injury in the workplace.

He tried countless medications and pain management treatments over the years, which were not successful.

His therapy options, other than increasingly strong opioids, were limited.

Joe’s wife decided to try a different strategy–

She began to research alternative medicine options and discovered Calmare Therapy, a drug-free, painless solution to combat chronic nerve pain, particularly nerve pain conditions like RSD / CRPS.

Dr. Michael Cooney specializes in using Calmare scrambler therapy to combat CRPS.

Weeks later, Joe arrived at our clinic in New Jersey, feeling equal amounts of hope and skepticism, fearing he would be disappointed again, going home in the same level of pain.

Joe’s RSD Pain Level Decreases Throughout His Therapy

During the course of his Calmare treatments (once daily for 10 days) Joe’s pain level steadily improved:

  • After the first week, his pain level fell to a 4/5.
  • When he arrived for his sixth session, Joe was no longer using his cane.
  • By the conclusion of his tenth and final treatment, his pain level was reduced further to 3/4, and he was no longer using prescription pain medications.
Calmare
John adds his pin to the Calmare global patient map after his successful pain therapy.

“I wanted to share Joe’s story because he represents some of our patients who do not leave pain-free, but their pain has been significantly reduced, and they are no longer using canes, wheelchairs and other devices to support mobility,” says Dr. Michael Cooney, clinical director at Calmare Therapy NJ USA.

But if you suffer from neuropathy, you can certainly appreciate the vast quality-of-life improvement managing a pain level of ¾ versus 8/9.

When you consult with Dr. Cooney and his team of scrambler therapy professionals, he will explain the variables that will play a role in your eventual outcome.

That’s right, you will be speaking with our clinical director personally about your medical history. Why?

“Calmare is not right for every patient,” says Dr. Cooney.

“By speaking with patients, I can assess if scrambler therapy is a viable treatment option.”
