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

Wednesday, October 7, 2020 from 1 – 4 pm

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.

Here’s Why the Calmare® Medical Device is Very Different from a Tens Unit

September 22, 2020

We’ve been using the MC-5A Calmare scrambler therapy technology here in New Jersey since 2011. Clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney has single-handedly treated more than 1,000 patients from more than 20 countries, reducing pain levels, increasing mobility and helping people get a good night’s sleep for the first time in years.

One of the questions we are asked most often is how scrambler therapy compares to a self-administered tens device.

The difference between these two medical devices can be compared to driving on a freshly-paved 16-lane superhighway versus a one-lane, gravel-covered back road.

Technological distinctions between MC-5A (Calmare) and a tens machine

From a chronic nerve pain patient’s perspective, let’s put these two pain treatment devices head-to-head.

The operational distinctions between the two devices are significant:

  • Volume of current being used
  • Type of neurons transmitting the no-pain signal
  • Calmare device sends a “no pain” signal on the surface C-fiber nerve receptors versus a tens, which temporarily interrupts pain signals through the A-beta fibers.
Calmare® Pain Therapy’s MC-5A Technology

This technology creates a low-energy electrical impulse that travels through the patient’s nerves delivering a “no-pain” signal to the brain. This process “tricks the brain” that the area of pain is normal and eventually results in prolonged pain relief.

Calmare uses “C Fibers” to transmit these random ‘no pain’ signals to calm the brain. It operates at 40 to 50 Hz. and 16 different algorithms deliver five dual-channel signals to restart the brain and ultimately disrupt the chronic pain loop.

There is never a repeated cycle during a Calmare treatment, so there can be no accommodation by the brain (as with drugs or a self-administered, hand-held TENS unit).

Calmare technology offers patients a significantly longer duration (often months, years or more) of reduced or 0-level chronic nerve pain versus a TENS unit, where the pain returns soon after discontinuation of the treatment.

Calmare Certified Location LogoFinally, Calmare Therapy is only administered by a medical professional who has years of clinical expertise delivering customized pain therapy.

Why You Should Carefully Select Your Calmare Therapy Provider

The Calmare Device Earned a U.S. Patent Number

The scrambler machine has been awarded a patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which identifies the device as a unique entity, unlike anything else in the market (i.e. a tens unit). The U.S. Patent number is 8,380,317.

Do you want to administer your own pain management? 

TENS unitOf course not, especially if you are already living with treatment and medication-resistant chronic pain.

Keep in mind, the small hand-held TENS unit is self-administered by the patient, so the placement of the pads hand-during-treatmentis determined not by a healthcare professional, but at the best judgment of the patient or loved one providing the treatment at home.

The tens operates using a single signal, allowing for short duration pain relief.

Most importantly, a tens machine has been designed with the goal of temporarily reducing pain.

People Living with RSD and CRPS 

The use of electricity for the management of pain is certainly not unique to the Calmare medical device.

The main challenge in treating RSD/CRPS is the complicated change in the nervous system, which can be traced to changes in the brain’s receptors. As a result, therapy to resolve this kind of pain must reach the brain.

In fact, many RSD/CRPS sufferers have already tried traditional tens therapy prior to coming to our clinic.

Calmare Therapy Does Not Function Like a TENS Unit

Calmare Technology 2012Injury or other noxious stimuli in the body creates pain chemicals. These chemicals, in turn, are converted into electrical impulses by your nerves, which are transmitted to the brain and INTERPRETED by the brain.

When specially-trained doctors use Calmare Therapy, they “control” the electrical impulses that the brain is receiving.

By manipulating the input into the brain, they “retrain” it to remove the pain signal to the area of the body where there is, in fact, no pain.

Interestingly, medical science has already proven through other methodologies that the brain can be “taught.”

In healthcare, we refer to those changes as neuroplasticity; there are a wealth of interesting books on this topic, which we encourage you to peruse.

Questions? Call Us. We’ll Answer

nurses-on-phoneAdmittedly, this information is a lot to take in for people without a healthcare background. Nonetheless, we hope this helps in recognizing the critical distinctions between the two devices.

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.

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.”

Calmare: Non-Invasive Pain Management for Pediatric Chronic Pain

June 10, 2020

adolescent with chronic pain

Few things are harder for a parent than being unable to reduce chronic pain for a child living with neuropathy. Parents often resort to giving their children powerful opioids, desperate to lessen their discomfort.

As parents, we all feel that if we could take on the pain our children have, we would do so gladly.

But we can’t.

Parents of children battling medication and treatment-resistant chronic pain live with this challenge daily.

Estimates suggest that anywhere between 5 and 38% of children live with chronic pain. It not only affects their quality of life and that of their parents, but also increases the likelihood of this becoming a lifelong issue.

More than 70% of children and teens who live with chronic pain will go on to struggle with it in adulthood.

At Calmare Therapy NJ USA, we have treated more than 100 children, from ages 8 to 18.

“A common hurdle children with chronic pain face is the invisible nature of neuropathy and a child’s understandable difficulty describing their pain and level of pain,” says Dr. Michael Cooney, clinical director.

 Why non-invasive Calmare is ideal for pediatric neuropathy

 

  • FDA-cleared510(k)-cleared and European CE mark-certified
  • Pain-free treatment
  • Non-invasive (no injections, IV’s, outpatient procedures)
  • Drug-free (no narcotics or over-the-counter medications required)
  • No side effects (except for a possible light humming sensation, which we can adapt if your skin is unable to sustain any physical contact.)

 How does scrambler therapy work?

Click the image to read about Abby’s scrambler therapy success at 13-years-old.

Children or teenagers are comfortably connected to the Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment® device via small electrodes (similar to those used in EKG and other medical procedures) placed on the patient’s skin at the pain site/s.

The device then sends a very low current of electrical stimulation through the skin and nerve fibers, which carries a “no-pain” signal to the brain, essentially overriding the previous pain signal.

We recommend the child have books, magazines or handheld entertainment to help pass the time during the 35-minute daily treatments.

In some cases, pain relief has been reported after the first treatment, but each child’s case is unique.

Scrambler therapy treatments are performed over a two-week period, with the goal of the patient’s pain steadily decreasing, eliminating the need for wheelchairs, canes or any mobility support devices.

After ample rest and continued recovery at home, pediatric patients are encouraged to ease back into normal daily activities.

Eligibility criteria for pediatric Calmare patients

  • Prior to approval for treatment, parents should provide copies of the child’s MRIs, EMGs and/or CAT scans.
  • We treat children who have been medically-diagnosed with neuropathy
  • Youngsters should be able to describe where their pain is located, and on a scale of one to 10, roughly describe the level of pain with some accuracy.
  • Children should also be able to verbalize if their pain level increases or decreases.

Since the Calmare MC-5A device is FDA-cleared, has no side effects and cannot worsen an existing condition, the overall risk factor is very low.

There are no drugs, injections or surgery connected with scrambler therapy.

Seventy-five Calmare patients shared their experiences on video

During the 10-treatment course of therapy, most children will be able to identify a reduction in pain by the fifth treatment, some as soon as the first treatment.

Children with CRPS

Click the image to watch 10-year-old Kiera’s Calmare Therapy experience.

Most families with a child experiencing chronic pain have previously tried ‘every pain management treatment under the sun’ before contacting us, especially for children living with CRPS / RSD / RND.

Not surprisingly, many are initially skeptical (and who could blame them?) about the potential for pain relief using scrambler therapy.

And after 10 daily Calmare treatment sessions, lasting about 35-minutes each, more than half of the pediatric patient we treat experience “very significant and sustained pain relief.”

Does Calmare work for every child? Sadly, like any therapy or medication, it does not work for everyone and we do not guarantee success.

Disappointing outcomes are often attributed to additional health issues inhibiting pain relief, misdiagnosis of the neuropathy (it is a structural injury rather than a nerve injury) or there is an additional undiagnosed medical condition/s.

Now that school is coming to a close for many students, summer is an ideal time to consider pain management.

Dr. Cooney offers no-cost phone consultations to discuss the child’s case, review medical records and answer questions.

Hospital Lab Director Reduces CRPS Chronic Pain to 0/1

May 29, 2020

calmare treats CRPS and reduces pain
Rhonda and Dr. Cooney celebrate her success reducing her chronic pain from 2-10 down to 0-1.

By Dr. Michael Cooney, Clinical Director

Trust us, we’re smiling under these masks!

In mid-May, Rhonda traveled from California for New Jersey to undergo 10 Calmare Therapy treatments after a toe injury in 2016 led to a CRPS diagnosis in both feet.

I was honored to treat her for two weeks, after she had endured four long years of unsuccessful medications, nerve blocks,  physical therapy and Ketamine, which ultimately failed to reduce  her pain level, which ranged from 2-10.

The hospital lab director had 10 Calmare treatments, once daily lasting about 30 minutes, and left at a 0/1 pain level, even during the night when her pain level traditionally spiked to 8+.

I was elated to use scrambler therapy to help get this healthcare worker back to work, where her heart lies.

But Rhonda is the hero, as she took a gamble, even during COVID-19, to win the war against chronic pain, by traveling 3,000 miles for our treatment.

Next week, she is returning to her beloved career once again, living life to the fullest.

 

Chronic pain patient is treated at Calmare Therapy NJ
Rhonda adds a pin to northern CA on our Calmare patient map.

Beginning in mid-May, we re-opened our pain management clinic in New Jersey, where we are treating only one patient at a time for optimal patient, family member and staff safety.
