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.

Calmare Scrambler Therapy Featured in Alternative Pain Directory

October 1, 2019

Cindy Perlin and her team at the Alternative Pain Directory invited Dr. Cooney to share an article about the benefits of Calmare scrambler therapy, which you can read here:

New Nerve Pain Therapy: Fast, Safe, Powerful Relief
Excerpt:

Our nation desperately needs to evolve beyond the outdated notion that there is a pill to cure
everything, particularly in the case of acute and chronic pain management.

The majority of patients we treat with scrambler therapy come to us frustrated and exhausted after enduring months and years of searching for chronic pain relief. They have often resorted to unproven surgeries, experimental procedures or powerful prescription pain medications, leaving them mentally and physically debilitated by the drugs’ side effects, and still in pain.

Scrambler therapy is a unique approach to retraining the brain by correcting the misfiring pain
message.

There are no inherent risks to undergoing scrambler therapy. As I tell everyone who prepares to undergo the therapy, the only negative to this therapy is that it may not work for you, which happens in a small minority of cases.

We can tell within the first few sessions whether you are a good candidate.

It has no side effects, is not painful to undergo and is drug-free.”

We would love to tell you more about the potential pain relief you may experience by having Calmare Therapy.

Dr. Cooney speaks personally with every scrambler therapy candidate, as the therapy is not right for everyone.

Complete the eCard below and Dr. Cooney will reach out to you directly, or call our clinic located just outside New York City at 201-933-4440.

Abraham Travels from Israel for Post-Surgical Neuropathy Relief

March 7, 2019

By Dr. Michael Cooney, Clinical Director

This week we welcomed 54-year-old Abraham back from Kiryat Ye’arim, Israel who first treated with us in 2015 and again 2017 for booster treatments to reduce his post-surgical neuropathy.

He returned this week for four booster treatments and added his pin to Israel on our Calmare patient map.

We are always amazed to discover how people with chronic pain discover us from around the world.

Abraham, first heard about Calmare scrambler therapy in 2015 after watching a promising story about scrambler therapy featured on the Charles Osgood File Report.

Abe, a rabbi who works in publishing, makes the long trip from Israel to our clinic in New Jersey to reduce or eliminate his chronic nerve pain, when the pain returns and begins to increase.

Some of our patients never require further treatment (Calmare booster therapy) while others with more severe conditions, or who suffered with treatment-resistant neuropathy for a year or more, may need occasional treatments, if the pain returns.

As I’ve said before, in many cases, the need for boosters is generally less frequent as time goes on and fewer sessions are required.

Speak with Dr. Cooney about Your Chronic Pain Condition

If you have been unsuccessful lessening or eliminating post-surgical neuropathy or other types of chronic nerve pain, I would be happy to discuss your case during a no-fee phone or video consultation.

Note that you should be in a position to travel to New Jersey, USA and lodge in the New York City/New Jersey area for a period of two weeks, should we mutually agree you are a viable candidate for this FDA-cleared pain management therapy.

To confirm a phone consultation, we invite you to email us at info@calmaretherapynj.com, call the clinic at 201.933.4440 or complete the card below and we’ll reach out to you within 72 hours.

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).

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

Emily Hewatt Checks in Two Years Since Her Calmare Therapy

October 17, 2018

Emily Hewatt is a wonderful young woman who gained global attention in her quest to find a pain management solution for the CRPS she had been battling for four years. The pain and side effects of the disease had kept her inside, unable to enjoy a true quality of life.

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.

Discovering a new treatment for CRPS from a fellow Aussie

She discovered Calmare through another woman from Australia who had achieved life-changing pain relief. Her quest to raise the funds began, attracting media attention:

After her successful pain management outcome with us in 2016, almost two years to the day, she left us pain-free and without the need of a wheelchair.

The severity of her CRPS condition will require lifelong healthcare maintenance, which Emily recently shared and generously permitted us to share with you.

Emi sends a update on her health two years after scrambler therapy

Excerpt:

It has been two years since I was so humbly blessed with tremendous generosity and support which allowed me to be further blessed by the caring hands of Dr. Cooney and his team.

It was a very scary and daunting adventure traveling from our tiny town in North East Victoria, Australia halfway around the world to Rutherford, New Jersey, USA in search of a pain management treatment for my CRPS.

My treatment outcome was life-changing, to say the least. I left New Jersey without any pain, without the need of a wheelchair. It was just unbelievable.

Emily Hewatt returns from treatment in New Jersey pain-free

For the first two weeks post treatment I did as I was told and did nothing but rest and recover.

On the 15th day however, we had to execute a charity trail ride we had organized months earlier. After four years of excruciating pain forcing me bound within the walls of our home. It was my first full day out and walking!

Until later that night when we got home and my body was on fire and I was back in my wheelchair just to get inside from the car, I could barely move.

That was when I realized that even though I had felt amazing–with no pain since the Calmare treatment–that I still had CRPS and needed to manage it.

Emi’s mother, Dr. Cooney and Emi

So that has been the underlying theme of my life, to keep myself feeling as good as possible and as often as possible, and I’d say I am doing pretty well at it.

This drove home for me how important, especially now, it was to take care of myself, which is how we eventually came across Calmare Therapy or scrambler therapy as we now know it as in Australia.

My philosophy is do whatever you need to do to feel better.

Now two years since my Calmare Therapy,

I don’t really think about the CRPS all that

much—even after enduring four years of constant pain.

I have learned how to live my life so when I do get pain and become symptomatic from time to time, it’s not a big deal. I have all the tools, like the scrambler therapy, and knowledge I need to manage it.

The only one who truly knows me and knows what is right for me is me.

So thank you, Dr. Cooney, and your team and everyone who has shared their generosity and support with me.

Only I will ever truly know how much you all have given back to me.

Emi Hewatt, North East Victoria, Australia

Ten Tips to Prepare for Your Calmare Therapy

October 10, 2018

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director, Calmare Therapy New Jersey 

ID-10053921
Our tools to get ready for your Calmare treatments will lessen stress and prepare you for success.

Before the end of the year,  we will be welcoming many new patients to Calmare Therapy here in New Jersey who are traveling here from nearby New Jersey to as far away as South America, Sweden, South Africa and Australia.

I thought it would be a good time to recap how patients and families can optimally prepare for their upcoming scrambler therapy sessions.

Patients generally treat for a minimum of 10 sessions, one per business day, lasting about 35 minutes, on average.

How to Prepare for Your Calmare Therapy:
  1. Fill out your New Patient Forms in advance. Forward them to us by fax (201-933-8159) or scan and email to calmarenj@gmail.com .
  2. Send or bring along any objective tests ( X-rays, EEG, MRI, EMG or cat scans) for our pre-treatment study).
  3. Wean off as many medications (i.e. anticonvulsants and antidepressants) as possible, working in partnership with your prescribing doctor/s. (Note: Each patient case is different. Well in advance, we’ll talk specifically about your specific medication protocol and how to safely and effectively prepare).
  4. Refrain from using skin lotions or oils 24-hours before each treatment.
  5. Dress in loose, comfortable clothing and bring some entertainment to occupy you during each treatment.
  6. Consider keeping a journal about your experience and discuss how you feel each day during therapy.
  7. Make hotel reservations well in advance. We provide a list of lodging options which have received high marks from patients. (We don’t recommend using Airbnb or other sub-rental accommodations due to quality unreliability).
  8. Focus on nutrition and hydration. We understand your high level of pain may stymie appetite and water intake. But by building up your metabolism and fueling your body with hydration, you are setting a course for an optimal treatment outcome.
  9. Find ways to help relax your mind and body. Traveling is challenging even when you feel great–it can be exhausting and painful when you are battling pain. Gather items of comfort–slippers, pillows, scented items and keep them in a handy bag on the plane or in the car with you.
  10. Don’t be nervous!  The treatments are non-invasive and have no side effects.

CalmareWe are a positive and spirited team who will make you feel as comfortable as possible from your first visit to your last.

Our collective goal is to lessen your chronic nerve pain and eliminate a need for pharmaceuticals painkillers or invasive pain management treatments.

Every patient’s case is unique. If you have questions or concerns, reach out to us anytime and we’ll reply within 24-48 hours of your contact.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

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.

Donna’s Nerve Entrapment and CRPS Pain Reduced by Calmare

August 28, 2018

CRPS
Donna Sisco, left, is shown with Dr. Michael Cooney and her sister Debbie.

From traditional pain management and prescription medications to platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, from acupuncture to the use of a tens unit, nothing could reduce Donna Sisco’s chronic nerve pain after total knee replacement surgery in 2012.

At age 61, she began to feel that hope was lost. But after finding an online support group for people living with CRPS, she heard about Calmare scrambler therapy and the success of Dr. Michael Cooney at Calmare Therapy NJ USA.

With her sister along for support, the siblings flew 3,000 miles to New Jersey with equal amounts of hope and skepticism.

Why Diagnostic BrainSpan™ is a key asset to your Calmare Therapy protocol.

“I can’t blame patients who feel reservations about Calmare,” says Dr. Cooney. “These people have tried traditional pain management, bags full of prescription medication and even more invasive procedures–and still live with chronic pain.”

When Donna arrived in New Jersey, her pain level was a consistent 7/10 and she battled with the additional side effects of CRPS–pins and needles, sensitivity to touch, hair loss.

Steadily each day, she had a scrambler therapy treatment, lasting about 35 minutes. The therapy has no side effects and is pain-free.

After 10 scrambler therapy treatments (once daily), her pain level steadily decreased to a 0-2/10 by the time she left our clinic last week.

To learn more about people like you who have undergone Calmare Therapy, watch and read their stories here.

Teen Football Star Finds CRPS Pain Relief After Calmare Therapy

August 9, 2018

Teenager Austin was enjoying high school until he sustained a fibula fracture during a football game.

Soon after surgery, he was diagnosed with CRPS shooting nerve pain and small burning lesions on his foot.

His traditional pain management efforts were not successful, eventually requiring him to use a cane for stable mobility.

He was also bothered by (spreading) painful blisters on top of his right foot, a common CRPS side effect.

Austin traveled across the U.S. to undergo scrambler therapy treatment in New Jersey

We are happy to report he achieved and sustained a half to 1/10 pain level and is headed back west cane-free.

His foot lesions are also nearly gone.

Do you have medication or treatment-resistant chronic pain?

The majority of patients we help here at Calmare Therapy NJ USA have already tried the traditional cocktail of pain management medications, including opioids, injections, Ketamine and other aggressive therapeutic efforts to obtain chronic pain relief, without success.
