Questions to Ask Your New Pain Management Provider

By Dr. Michael Cooney, Clinical Director

During the course of your life, you may experience chronic pain, which is generally described as consistent pain lasting for at least three months. The neuropathy may result from an injury; side effect from a chronic disease treatment for a condition, such as chemotherapy; or simply wear and tear on an aging body.

Regardless, choosing a pain management provider requires special preparation to find the right doctor to relieve your pain and achieve your desired outcome.

Unlike a broken arm or a case of shingles, neuropathy can’t be observed with the naked eye. Therefore, it is essential for the patient to be able to describe their pain, including the level of pain, based upon a verbal conversation.

Dependent on how long you have lived with long-term pain, it is important to clearly delineate your treatment goals—

  • Do you want to eliminate the need for prescription pain medications or invasive therapies?
  • Do you want to be completely pain-free, or would you be satisfied if your pain level remained under 3/10?
  • Do you want to alleviate a need for mobility devices?
  • Is your goal to return to work full-time or attend school?

Once you have stated your pain therapy goals, the next step is to determine if the doctor has the tools and mindset to lessen or eliminate your pain successfully.

Doctors who treat neuropathic pain generally specialize in a specific sub-specialty such as pediatrics, orthopedics, gastroenterology, psychiatry, neurology, geriatric care or rheumatology, for example.

I was a clinical chiropractor for 30+ years before administering Calmare scrambler therapy exclusively at my New Jersey clinic.

For me, working with the body’s central nervous system for three decades served as an essential skill in optimally placing the leads required for successful scrambler therapy outcomes.

With the explosion of opioid abuse over the past decade, just prescribing pain medications to people with chronic pain is no longer a long-term solution to managing pain for most people.

I have been a strong believer that medications are not usually required to overcome pain throughout my career.

Calmare is a Provider-Dependent Therapy – Know Your Provider!

Ask how frequently the doctor treats people with your specific medical condition/s and describe the overall success rate (pain elimination or significant reduction).

In our practice, we have a list of patient volunteers who are willing to speak with potential patients about their Calmare scrambler therapy treatment experiences.

Note: I’d like to thank our Calmare patients and chronic pain friends on Facebook who contributed their firsthand input to these questions below:

  1. Do you regularly treat patients with my condition? If not, how many patients have you treated with my condition and what was the outcome for the majority?
  2. What is your area of medical specialty in treating nerve pain?
  3. Can you offer a typical outcome for patients with my condition and pain level?
  4.  What percentage of your patients experience a significant reduction in pain within six months?
  5. For my condition, what are the most common treatment protocols you prescribe, starting with the least invasive?
  6. Do you feel pain medication is the primary treatment plan for me? Why?
  7. Do you support alternative pain therapies and, if so, can you describe them?
  8. Based upon your expertise, what do you project my ‘best-case outcome may be?

Remember, the doctor works for you and is being paid to provide you with healthcare that will make you feel healthier, less pain and improve your quality of life. This is a tall order that will require a significant commitment.

Ensure that you are working with a care provider you believe is best suited to meet your needs and health goals.

Calmare scrambler therapy is not right for everyone experiencing neuropathic pain; after a clinical consultation (sometimes performed by phone for clients residing outside of our metro New York City geographic area and out of country patients), we will not recommend this therapy for you if Dr. Cooney does not feel there is a strong possibility for significant pain relief, elimination of pain, markedly improved mobility or a significant improvement in quality of life.

Arachnoiditis Warrior is Pain-Free after Calmare Therapy

Updated: February 24, 2021

By Dr. Michael Cooney

Pure joy.

When someone whose life has been sidelined by chronic nerve pain finally achieves pain relief–or a pain-free state–the feeling we get is pure joy.

As I’ve stated over the years, most of the time, people with chronic pain arrive at our clinic feeling skeptical, exhausted, financially spent and almost numb to the possibility of finally winning the war against pain.

This week, Sharlene is undergoing her second week of treatment with us after carefully weighing her decision to trust us with her health while helping lessen her pain after a 30-year battle with arachnoiditis. This debilitating condition causes chronic shooting pain, the feeling of bugs crawling on the skin, weak legs and even neurological problems.

Better yet, we’ll let her tell it:

One of the many reasons Calmare Pain Therapy has changed the face of pain management is the fact that is can lessen, or in Shar’s case, eliminate neuropathy caused by various types of injury or diseases, like arachnoiditis, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) after Shingles, fibromyalgia and light bruises to extensive surgery.

You won’t find needles, pain or a prescription drug list at Calmare Therapy, either.

This FDA-cleared alternative pain management therapy is non-invasive and has 0 side effects.

Yes, there are no side effects or pain when undergoing Calmare, other than you may be more tired for a period of time during and up to a month after treatment.

That’s it.

If you or a loved one feels that you are at the end of the line of pain management options, you are not.

Sharlene posted this Facebook message near the end of her 10 Calmare treatments and gave us permission to share it:

Reach out and let’s talk about your battle. You and I will speak directly and there is no consultation fee, of course.

Call our clinic, located outside New York City, at (201) 933-4440 or email us at info@calmaretherapynj.com.

Let’s start fighting back against your pain today, no more waiting for tomorrow.

Calmare Therapy Ends Child’s CRPS Chronic Pain

February 11, 2021

Ten-year-old Zion experienced a fall in 2019, resulting in chronic pain in his hand, arm and eventually his upper back.

After endless pediatric pain management consultations and a plethora of lab tests, he was eventually diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).

Zion’s mother, Laura, was told by pediatricians and neuropathic pain specialists that her son would require daily pain medication and live with some degree of pain for the rest of his life.

Laura refused to accept this future for her young son and began researching alternative treatments for Zion’s pediatric CRPS.

She discovered Dr. Michael Cooney and Calmare Therapy on a Facebook group for parents of children living with chronic pain.

Meet Laura and Zion in the video below:

Zion and his mother arrived in New Jersey from Florida in January 2021; upon arrival the young boy presented with these symptoms:

  • Chronic pain level ranging from 5 – 9/10
  • Allodynia
  • Skin discoloration
  • Burning and extreme sensitivity
  • Intermittent hand numbness

After 10 Calmare treatments, performed one-time daily, Zion was pain-free and his physical symptoms were visibly resolved.

Calmare scrambler therapy is an ideal pain management treatment for children battling chronic pain:

• No medication
• Non-Invasive
• Painless treatment
• No side effects

Nine Years after Calmare, Shoulder Neuropathy has Not Returned

February 2, 2021

Hearing from our previous patients months and years after their Calmare treatment is the gift that keeps on giving. It sustains us to keep looking forward with hope.

Last week, we heard from this young man’s mother, who brought him to us in 2012, as a 12-year-old boy, with treatment-resistant shoulder neuropathy.

jamie no longer has chronic shoulder neuropathy nice years after Calmare pain treatment

This is a family of very bright people, who aggressively traveled to see the top pediatric pain management doctors and treatment centers in the US. Finally, a pain management clinic in the Midwest recommended they pursue an alternative pain treatment called Calmare Therapy , because it is non-invasive and has no side effects.

Jamie was one of the first children we treated; thankfully, his successful treatment outcome opened to door to Dr. Cooney helping many other children and teenagers thereafter.

His mother describes their long journey:

As you may know from our Patient Stories, we use non-invasive, drug-free scrambler therapy to treat adults as well.

The scrambler therapy device doesn’t just lessen or eliminate nerve pain. Dependent upon the cause of the neuropathy, physical symptoms can also be alleviated after undergoing the standard Calmare 10-treatment series, including:

  • Allodynia
  • Severe temperature fluctuations
  • Extreme sensitivity to touch
  • Healing of lesions and blisters
  • Neurological and cognitive challenges
  • Muscle weakness and reduced mobility

Ultimately, our goal is to retrain the patient’s brain and eliminate the misfiring ‘there is pain here‘ message to a ‘there is no pain here, so we will no longer need to send the pain message.’

If you have tried traditional pain medications, pain management and/or physical therapy for neuropathy and have been disappointed with the results, contact our New Jersey team, with 10 years of Calmare treatment expertise, led by clinical director, Dr. Michael J. Cooney.

We follow the 2021 CDC guidance for Covid-19 safety protocols. A negative Covid test report is required within 72 hours of your arrival for your first treatment session.

Calmare is a US FDA-cleared treatment.

Call (201) 933-4440 or email us privately at info@calmaretherapynj.com.

It’s 2021. We pray it’s the year your pain becomes just a distant memory.

Watch Nearly 100 Calmare Patient Testimonials

December 15, 2020

By Dr. Michael Cooney, Clinical Director

This time of year, I become rather sentimental, thinking about the previous 11 months and what we accomplished. Certainly, this year has been one for the record books (and not in a good way).

Remarkably, even since the onset of Covid-19 in March, we still welcomed new patients battling treatment-resistant chronic pain, who were determined to reach outside the confines of traditional pain management options (pain medications and invasive procedures) and traveled from around the country to undergo Calmare Therapy.

Masked, treating only one patient at a time, with family and friends waiting in their cars, we fired up the MC-5A Calmare device, and went to war, fighting chronic nerve pain as a result of disease or injury.

This week, I took a look at the Calmare YouTube channel for the first time in ages.

I was shocked by how many patient success stories we have posted since we introduced this little-known painless treatment for neuropathy back in 2011.

I lost count, but we are closing in on nearly 100 first-person patient reviews; I hope you will watch a few patient review videos to learn more about how Calmare works, especially if you are considering treatment with us in 2021.

We are confirming new patients into May 2021 and hope you add you to our family of patients early next year.

As always, we will make every effort to accommodate patients traveling from outside the US.

2020 has been a rough year for all of us, but there are many better days up ahead on the horizon. I can see them. Until then, take good care.

New Pain Therapy for Treatment-Resistant Sciatica

November 12, 2020

One of the frustrations about chronic sciatica is that medications, injections, physical therapy and independent exercises–even surgery–often fail to resolve the debilitating pain.

Sciatica and low back pain affects millions of people of all ages, from all walks of life.  While people as young as their 20s can suffer from sciatic nerve pain, it’s most common in adults in their 40s and 50s, affecting more men than women.

And yet, traditional medicine is often hindered by how to relieve this type of neuropathy.

The cause of sciatica or chronic back pain may be due to injury, failed back surgery or generalized aging of bones and joints.

Eventually, medication and treatment-resistant sciatica can result in leg weakness and mobility challenges. Further, overall health quality can be diminished due to poor sleep.

For people whose pain is nerve-focused, we are increasingly recommending Calmare Therapy, particularly for people battling chronic back pain for six months or longer.

Calmare uses biophysical “scrambler” technology, a painless treatment for nerve pain that uses electrodes placed on the skin emitting low amounts of electricity scrambles the pain message from the brain so that it stops sending the pain signal.

Yes, in fact, it’s as simple as it sounds.

Most importantly, 75 percent of the chronic nerve pain patients we have treated here in New Jersey have “significantly reduced–or even eliminated their neuropathic pain.”

How the Calmare MC-5A technology can significantly lessen treatment-resistant lumbar and sciatic neuropathy

Sciatica can be relieved using calmoare therapy

The device’s technology painlessly reduces sciatic and spinal neuropathy by creating an artificial neuron that retrains the brain. This is accomplished when the device sends a mild ‘no-pain’ signal along the sciatic root to the brain.

Calmare scrambler therapy has been performed at our pain control clinic since 2011. It is performed exclusively by Dr. Michael Cooney, one of only seven Calmare Certified doctors in the US.

Sciatic neuritis versus sciatic neuropathy

Sciatic neuritis is usually a structural or biomechanical problem, such as a pinched nerve or ligament damage.

It is acute (short term, not chronic) and often successfully treated by chiropractors or physical therapists who specialize in treating musculoskeletal injuries.

In most cases, Calmare Therapy may not be the ideal treatment for this condition.

Sciatic neuropathy is the second most common neuropathy of the lower extremity. Symptoms often include foot drop, mimicking common fibular neuropathy.

The neuropathy (chronic pain) is constant; the pain may vary from low to high, but the discomfort never goes away completely.

This diagnosis is ideal for Calmare scrambler therapy since neuropathic pain is the root cause of the discomfort.

Calmare treats diagnosed chronic nerve pain.

Meet Rina Stiano, who received 10 scrambler therapy treatments for her sciatic neuropathy, performed by Dr. Michael Cooney:

How is Calmare performed and is it painful?

Via small electrodes strategically positioned by Dr. Cooney, a low grade, ‘no-pain’ message is then transmitted directly to the damaged nerve for approximately 35 minutes per session.

Regardless of severity, pain and physical symptoms caused by the sciatica can be significantly reduced or even alleviated by the conclusion of the 10-treatment series.

Double-Blind Clinical Study Finds Decreased Low Back Pain Following Calmare Therapy

For severe neuropathic pain cases, 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 success 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?

Calmare can lessen chronic pain in the back and sciatica

First, let us be perfectly transparent—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 notable 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 Nerve 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, by treatment 3-4 we are able to foresee 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 that 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.

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 Can Lessen Postherpetic Neuralgia – PHN

September 29, 2020

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

PHN nerve pain can be reduced with calmare scrambler therapy

Schedule your no-fee consultation to speak with clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney to discuss your treatment-resistant postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) and how Calmare’s non-invasive therapy can significantly help relieve this type of nerve pain. Please read the background about how Calmare works to relieve nerve pain in advance. Email us at info@calmaretherapynj.com to schedule your call or call us directly at (201) 933-4440.


Shingles is also known as herpes zoster, a painful skin rash caused by the varicella-zoster virus.

Some people with Shingles, generally people over age 65, develop a notoriously painful condition called postherpetic neuralgia (PHN).

According to the Centers for Disease Control, PHN risk increases with age; additional predictors include pain level during the active Shingles condition and the size of rash.

Another reason for PHN’s notoriety is that traditional medicine often fails to successfully reduce the severe chronic nerve pain, leaving Shingles survivors significantly physically debilitated and diminishing their quality of life.

PHN is a notoriously difficult chronic pain condition to treat

Traditional medicine generally prescribes the usual regimen of prescription painkillers to lessen pain, along with invasive treatments, usually in the nerve block injection family.

These efforts, much like so many people battling chronic pain from other conditions, fail to offer sustained pain relief, or their success dwindles over time.

Here at Calmare Therapy New Jersey, we are achieving very positive pain reduction outcomes treating patients with postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) using non-invasive and drug-free scrambler therapy.

One of the specific reasons I introduced the Calmare MC-5A device was the wide-ranging chronic nerve pain conditions suitable for non-invasive scrambler therapy.

Since 2011, we have successfully helped people with PHN and even eliminated the chronic nerve pain entirely in some patient cases. 

But using non-invasive Calmare Therapy, I have achieved some outstanding patient outcomes and have been delighted to see these patients’ quality of life escalate after 10 scrambler therapy treatments.

Joan shares a letter about her Calmare research and firsthand PHN treatment experience.

Shingles and chronic pain researchers around the US agree, based upon their clinical trials using the Calmare device to treatment PHN pain:

Dr. Thomas Smith, director of Palliative Care at the Sydney Kimmel Cancer Center, Johns Hopkins University, performed a clinical trial where they achieved an outstanding 95% reduction in pain a month after the treatment with no side effects.

Journal of pain and symptom management

Another study recently published in the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management with 52 random pain participants compared guideline-based drug management with the scrambler. The Calmare participants had a 91 percent reduction in pain compared to a 28 percent reduction in pain for those who used drug management.

ACOS

The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) completed a clinical trial on the benefits of scrambler therapy:

“Scrambler therapy appears to have a promising effect on post-herpetic neuropathy (PHN) with prompt and continued relief and no side effects.”

The Shingles Vaccine

If you are over age 60, talk to your doctor about getting the shingles vaccine. The benefits are twofold: they reduce your risk of developing shingles; if you do develop shingles, you’ll be more likely to have a mild case, and far less likely to develop PHN.

If you have any questions about PHN and how scrambler therapy may help treat your neuropathic pain, call our pain management team at (201) 933-4440. I will be happy to speak with you personally about your case.
