Calmare Therapy: Overcoming Chronic Pain Side Effects

The video you are about to see below was filmed by Megan in her New Jersey hotel room during her stay at Calmare Therapy NJ USA in July 2019.

She filmed her ‘before and after’ Calmare scrambler therapy treatments on her own accord and was not paid or influenced by our pain management team to do so.

Background on Megan’s Long-Term Battle with CRPS

Megan came to Calmare Therapy NJ USA from Australia in 2016 after being severely debilitated by neuropathic pain symptoms as a result of a five-year battle with medication and treatment-resistant neuropathy.

“When I arrived in New Jersey, I was in a wheelchair, unable to walk, stand or sit unsupported. My speech was affected and I had a bad stutter and slur when attempted.

My cognitive function deteriorated until I could no longer follow even a basic conversation or have an understanding of what was going on around me,” Megan wrote after her therapy.

“I had a constant tremor throughout my body and violent twitches which resemble seizures. I was in constant pain in my joints and having burning headaches at the base of my skull and back of my head that would incapacitate me further.

I was unable to do any regular daily activities such as showering, dressing, food preparation etc.”

Megan’s family discovered Dr. Michael Cooney’s use of Calmare Therapy to overcome chronic pain and they made the Herculean trip from Australia to New Jersey USA to try the treatments.

Eleven Scrambler Therapy Treatments Later (2016)

“I started feeling some of the benefits of the Calmare treatment after the first week. My pain was steadily decreasing, my ability to walk short distances was improving, my cognitive function was increasing, I only had one headache in the whole two weeks I was in New Jersey and it was more easily relieved than ever before.”

14 Months After Scrambler Therapy

August 2017 | Australia

“I just wanted to share the news that I’m finally back on road at work as a Paramedic here in Australia! I wouldn’t have gotten this far if it wasn’t for your help and support and the magical Calmare, and I wanted to say Thank You.

You really did save my life as I was in a very dark place before coming to the USA. I don’t think I would have been able to keep pushing through each day if I hadn’t had the amazing level of improvement I gained from your therapy.

You all also gave my mother and I a level of emotional support we had never received before, and we will always be thankful for that too. It has still been a long and frustrating battle to get me back to a level of normality, but it’s been worth it. My family has finally been able to relax; my parents even went on a holiday! And I can finally start being in my 20’s instead of my 80’s! 😀”

Three Years After Calmare Therapy

In mid-2018, Megan’s chronic pain began to steadily increase again. When the pain threatened her neurological skills and her mobility was regressing, she took the 24-hour trek from Australia to undergo 10 Calmare treatments again.

The first 3-4 treatments did not result in any marked improvement, as you’ll see on the video Megan made from her hotel room.

Undeterred, Dr. Michael Cooney persisted.

With Megan’s tenacity in full swing, treatment number 5 resulted in a pain level decrease.

Every treatment thereafter resulted in marked improvement in Megan’s speech, finger extension and reduction in leg spasms.

Thank you, Megan, for candidly sharing your ‘before and after’ Calmare treatments. We are most grateful for your generosity.

“Dr. Cooney just gave our daughter her life back after four years of intense suffering in her right foot with CRPS.

She started her treatment with a pain level of 9/10 and seven treatments later she was at a zero!!

We cannot thank this amazing, kind wonderful man enough!!!

Dr. Cooney will forever hold a huge part of our hearts.”

Natalie Overcomes CRPS Symptoms with Calmare Pain Therapy

July 19, 2019

Twenty-year old Natalie from New York was diagnosed with CRPS after an ankle sprain seven months ago.

What began as ankle pain steadily spread to chronic nerve pain throughout her entire leg.

As a result, she walked with a limp and was only able to wear sneakers.

As her condition spread, she underwent an aggressive regime of pain management efforts, which she describes in the video below.

Her pain continued, unrelently.

Natalie’s mother refused to give up.

She took to the internet in search of alternative medicine options which were drug-free and offered positive patient outcomes.

While searching ‘CRPS treatment,’ she came across an article by our clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney, and consulted with him by phone with Natalie.

Natalie describes her outcome after 10 scrambler therapy treatments in this video.

Teenager with RSD Discovers Calmare Scrambler Therapy on YouTube

March 13, 2019

Leave it to the teenagers to discover Calmare scrambler therapy on YouTube!

Since we launched scrambler therapy here in New Jersey in 2011, we have used YouTube to share patient case studies with a broader audience seeking drug-free, alternative treatments for chronic nerve pain.

Today, we have nearly 50 patient outcomes on our channel and nearly 100 more featured on our blog-based website.

Emma from Montreal is a 16-year-old suffering from CRPS as a result of a fall from a bicycle.

After battling intensifying pain in her right and then left leg for the past year, her neuropathy eventually prohibited her from attending high school and seeing friends regularly.

She had undergone pain management injections and even reported to Ketamine to help lessen her pain.

All efforts were unsuccessful.

A Teenager Discovers Her Own CRPS Pain Relief Solution

She searched “CRPS” on YouTube one day, hoping to discover other young people like her who were socially isolated because of the condition.

During her search, she discovered several teenagers from around the world who had successfully undergone Calmare scrambler therapy with us and left pain-free or at significantly reduced pain levels, including:

Kira from Scotland, age 13

Austin from AZ, age 18

Maiya, age 15

Evan, mid-Atlantic US, age 13

Emma and her parents arrived here in Rutherford on February 25, 2019; her pain level hovered around 7.5/10.

Steadily, each day, she underwent her scrambler therapy treatment and most days, her pain level decreased. On the tenth and final day of therapy, she left with a 2/10 pain level, which had been sustained for a few days.

Only Calmare Therapy NJ USA Offers Diagnostic BrainSpan 

Emma is obviously elated that she finally discovered a treatment to reduce her CRPS pain.

Her number one priority when she gets back to Toronto is to “be back in school with all my friends again.”

An Update form Emma’s Parents

Since returning to her life back in Canada, Emma’s parents dropped us an update this week:

Hello Dr.  Cooney,

I wanted to give you an update on Emma:

The pain is down to a 1 in both legs and she said that sometimes she feels no pain all.

This truly is a life changer for Emma and we can’t thank you enough.

Have a nice evening!

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.

Senior Woman with Chronic Sciatica Gets Pain Relief after Calmare

March 5, 2019

As some of you know, we are now helping people with treatment-resistant chronic back pain and sciatica.

This is especially useful for seniors who have already tried other traditional therapies and medications but did not achieve relief.

Rina’s chronic sciatica pain grew progressively worse as she tried medications and other therapies, including alternative medicine, to lessen her back pain.

In fact, she was verging on losing her ability to live independently while only in her early 70’s.

A savvy user of the internet, she took matters into her own hands and discovered Dr. Cooney and his MC-5A Calmare scrambler therapy device in northern NJ.

After completing a phone consultation with the doctor, where they discussed her current medication usage and previous therapy efforts, they mutually agreed that Calmare Therapy may be a viable therapy.

Rina tells her story below:

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

Our device reduces sciatic and spinal neuropathy by creating an artificial neuron that retrains the brain by sending a ‘no-pain’ signal along the sciatic root to the brain.

It’s key to understand the distinction between

a sciatic/lumber neuritis and a sciatic/lumbar neuropathy.

The neuropathy (chronic pain) is constant; the pain may vary from low to high, but the discomfort never goes away completely. This chronic, never-ending nerve pain is the root cause that scrambler therapy can relieve.

Conversely, a sciatic/lumbar neuritis is usually a structural or biomechanical problem, such as a pinched nerve or ligament damage. These types of conditions should be treated by chiropractors or physical therapists who specialize in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.

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 which 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.

To find out if your chronic back pain or sciatic condition may be suitable for Calmare therapy, contact us using the form below, email us privately at info@calmaretherapynj.com or call 201-933-4440 and Dr. Michael Cooney will speak with you directly about your chronic pain challenge.

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

Celebrating a Year Defeating Chronic Pain

December 31, 2018

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

We are celebrating a banner year here at Calmare Therapy NJ USA.

In 2018, we treated the highest number of people with chronic nerve pain since we began using scrambler therapy in 2011.

From children and teens to adults and seniors, our non-invasive therapy is quietly giving people their lives back, free of pain.

We helped people battling CRPS, PHN, nerve pain after chemotherapy (CIPN) and prolonged pain after surgery (post-surgical pain).

For the first time, we also began treating people with treatment-resistant low back pain and sciatica and are very excited by these patients’ strong pain relief outcomes. (More on that in early 2019).

You have my word, we have not even begun the fight yet.

If you have been unsuccessful lessening your pain with medication or other pain management therapies, please contact us to discuss your neuropathic pain condition.

Most importantly, don’t give up the fight. Don’t give up hope.
