Pain neuoropathy

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).

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

Ten-year-old with CRPS Walks Again after Calmare Scrambler Therapy

September 21, 2018

Ten-year-old Kiera is one of the reasons we love coming to work every day.

Last month, she traveled with her mother from Canada to our New Jersey clinic, arriving in a wheelchair due to a spreading CRPS condition and Lyme Disease.

Kiera had not been able to walk for 53 days due to the pain intensity, her mother confirmed.

She and her mother stayed for 14 Calmare treatments instead of the standard 10 treatments.

We are elated to report she can stick that wheelchair in the back of the garage from now on…

Her pain level sitting is a 0 and standing/walking is now a 2.

Better yet, we’ll let mother and daughter share their experience:

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.

“VA Turns to Alternative Pain Treatments Amid Opioid Crisis”

May 17, 2018

“Pain is rampant among veterans. Nearly 60 percent of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans are afflicted by chronic pain, as are more than 50 percent of older veterans. Many have returned home with battlefield injuries, but even more suffer back ailments, nerve damage, headaches, and other forms of severe pain that come with age and inadequate treatment.”

Boston Globe

The U.S. Air Force offers Calmare Therapy to airmen suffering from chronic nerve pain.

Since Calmare scrambler therapy was introduced in the United States, the Veteran’s Administration was one of the first healthcare organizations to purchase MC-5A devices and try the drug-free therapy to lessen several types of chronic pain.

Today, Calmare is offered at several VA hospitals worldwide and is also a covered treatment, enabling veterans to obtain scrambler therapy at any provider, including Calmare Therapy NJ USA, (with a referral from a VA-affiliated doctor).

U.S. Veterans are Covered for Calmare Pain Therapy with Referral

This week, the Boston Globe published a terrific article highlighting that the VA is aggressively adopting alternative medicine alternatives to battle pain instead of opioids.

While we were disappointed not to see Calmare featured (CPT Code 0278T), we were pleased to see recognition of the VA’s effort to treat neuropathy without opioids.

“Nerve Scrambler Therapy Lessens Pain for Warfighters”

Whether you are a veteran–or one of millions living with chronic pain because traditional pain management or prescription medications simply did not work for you–we hope you will reach out to learn more about our new pain management alternative.

Calmare has no side effects, the treatments are painless

and there are no medications or invasive procedures required.

Peruse our website, read our patient testimonials and reach out via email at calmarenj@gmail.com or call our New Jersey-based clinic at (201) 933-4440.

Most importantly, do not give up hope. There is a cure for your pain.

BrainSpan™ Diagnostic Services Improve Calmare Patient Outcomes

April 18, 2018

Through the examination of nerve cells, we can diagnose potential inflammation, which may the root cause of chronic pain symptoms.

At Calmare Therapy NJ USA, your scrambler therapy protocol includes more than pre-treatment consultations, multiple therapy sessions — performed only by clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney — and monitored follow-up care.

BrainSpan™ Diagnostic Services– Only at Calmare NJ USA

Before your Calmare Therapy treatments begin, you will undergo two tests that diagnose cell health, the foundation for optimal brain and body health.

These simple blood (prick-only) and cognitive (performed online) tests measure cell health and inflammatory balance.

Nerve cells (neurons) stained and mounted for microscopic examination of health, abnormalities or inflammation.

“But what do cells have to do with my chronic pain?” you may ask.

Examining your cellular structure gives us (your treatment provider) a precise diagnostic measurement of the health of your cells and the overall nervous system.

Your brain’s connectors can become stronger or weaker over time due to small and repetitious physical, nutritional, or emotional events.

Brain health markers can be quantified by analyzing essential fatty acid biomarkers in your blood cells.

The Omega-3 Index Factor in Treating Nerve Pain

In partnership with our Calmare scrambler therapy, we concentrate on:

  • Omega-3 Index
  • Inflammatory Index
  • Palmitic Acid Index

A high Omega-3 Index can help provide effective pain relief for people with chronic musculoskeletal pain.

How Cell Health Diagnostics Can Help Chronic Pain Management

Neuropathies (chronic nerve pain) can be a direct result of deficiencies in the Omega 3’s that ultimately results in an inflammatory process (inflammation), which can lead to a prolonged pain cycle referred to as chronic pain or neuropathy.

We are excited to introduce BrainSpan™’s new and non-invasive diagnostic tools as a valuable partner with our FDA-cleared Calmare scrambler therapy treatment protocol.

Have Opioids and Other Pain Management Options Failed to Reduce Your Pain?

We can understand your frustration. Rest assured, nearly all of the patients we treat have already tried every conventional pain management therapy.

Please look around our website, watch and read stories about our patients and then reach out to us at (201)-933-4440 if you’d like to determine if this treatment is right for you.

We’ll also respond to your message (below) within 48 hours, and you can expect a call directly from Dr. Cooney, if you provide your phone contact information below:

 

 

Your Calmare Post-Treatment Protocol

February 2, 2018

By Dr. Michael Cooney, Clinical Director

Congratulations!  You have completed your Calmare Therapy treatment protocol.

Now that you have less pain, or are pain-free, your quality of life is about to improve dramatically.

Due to you improved mobility and decrease in pain level, many Calmare patients feel like they are ready to climb Mount Everest.

But doing too much too soon can actually hamper and potentially jeopardize your positive outcome.

Therefore, I’ve outlined some instructions for patients (healthcare providers can contact directly for more detailed clinical guidelines) to ensure you recover optimally, and enjoy the benefits of Calmare Therapy for as long as possible.

Every patient’s medical history is unique and we welcome your individual questions about any of the recommendations cited below:

No Vigorous Exercise or Clinical Physical Therapy for Two Weeks after Treatment

Your body is in the midst of recalibrating itself since your Calmare treatments.

When you begin to exercise, be prepared for soreness associated with new this activity (a positive sign you have awakened muscles which had not been used before!)

During recovery, if an injury occurs, use ice to reduce swelling and inflammation.

To treat muscle soreness, use heat. In both cold and hot treatment, administer 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off for a period of one hour.

Don’t Overdo

While it is thrilling to feel less pain and be more mobile, muscles need time to adjust to renewed use. Be careful and cautious and don’t do too much too soon. If you feel tired or any pain, stop what you are doing and rest.

Additional Sleep

Your body needs to re-adjust to several physiological changes after treatment. More than likely, it has also been a long time since you have slept well.

You may need to sleep several more hours than usual for the next several weeks. This is normal.

Welcoming a Good Night’s Sleep After Calmare Therapy

Make an Appointment with Your Pain Management, Specialist or Family Physician

It’s important to discuss your successful treatment outcome with your doctor. It is likely that your medications, particularly for pain, may be lessened or eliminated completely.

Discuss how your lessened or eliminated pain will affect your holistic health and ask for guidelines going forward.

Improve Your Nutrition

Now that you are feeling better and moving more, you should see an improvement in your appetite. Take advantage of feeling better and fuel your recovering body with high-quality foods– fresh fruits and vegetables, grains, nuts and protein (white before red).

Hydrate with at least 6 – 8 tall glasses of water daily.

Finally, for patients who treated beginning in 2018, your BrainSpan™ report will arrive soon after you have returned home. Based upon your blood work, the report will detail any diagnosed vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Speak with your primary care doctor about ways to increase your consumption, either through pills or the foods you eat regularly.

Journal How You Feel

We hope you will chronicle how you feel after Calmare Therapy. Keep a record of the new activities you are able to engage in and record how you feel during and after the activity.

We hope this treatment is life-altering for you. Therefore, chart your progress and celebrate your success!

If You Feel Pain

Depending on your medical condition and the length of time you have experienced it, pain may return (to a lesser degree).

Pay careful attention to any physical or emotional issues that may have contributed to this.

If pain continues for five continuous days, Calmare booster treatments (generally 1 – 3 treatments) may be necessary. Please call the office for further instructions.

Robert Welcomes 2018 by Eliminating His Chronic Nerve Pain

January 12, 2018

Bergen County, New Jersey

pain management
Robert adds his hometown pin to our Global Patient Map at Calmare NJ

Robert, a married teacher with two children from Georgia, was battling chronic nerve pain after foot surgery in 2013.

As the school track coach, his pain condition began to interfere with his mobility, making coaching difficult and frustrating.

For pain management, Robert chose not to use prescription painkillers and preferred to aggressively fight back by undergoing an additional ‘corrective’ surgery, physical therapy, use of a hyperbaric oxygen chamber, bone stimulation and orthotics.

And still, he was battling nerve pain in his right foot daily.

Researching Drug-Free Pain Management Options

He began researching non-invasive, alternative medicine options which treat neuropathic pain and discovered Calmare Therapy, performed by leading Calmare Certified provider, clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney in New Jersey.

While he was never officially diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), Robert was experiencing the same type and severity of symptoms.

He consulted by phone with Dr. Cooney about his medical history and pain treatment goals and they mutually agreed that he was a suitable candidate to undergo the treatment.

When Robert arrived in New Jersey, his pain level was a 6 / 10. He immediately began daily therapy sessions over the course of the next two weeks.

By the end of the series of scrambler therapy treatments, he was pain-free, with only a mild tingling sensation over the surgical scars.

Our team was delighted to see a very different Robert leave the clinic:

He was smiling again and looking forward to getting back to school and resuming his track team coaching.

Good luck Coach!

Do You Have Chronic Nerve Pain That is Resistant to Traditional Medical Treatments?

The majority of our patients have already tried medications, injections, surgery and other therapies before they turn to Calmare, often as a last resort. Even if you have limited mobility, or have suffered with neuropathic pain for years, scrambler therapy, performed exclusively by Dr. Michael Cooney, may be able to help you, so you can enjoy life again.

Call us at (201) 933-4440, email us at calmarenj@gmail.com or complete the Calmare NJ eCard below and Dr. Cooney will call you directly to discuss your case, within 48 hours of receiving your contact information!
