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Our nation desperately needs to evolve beyond the outdated notion that there is a pill to cure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.

Meet 30 Calmare Therapy NJ Patients on YouTube

October 23, 2018

By Dr. Michael Cooney, Clinical Director, Calmare Therapy NJ USA

Most people who visit our website are already frustrated with the medical community.

They or a loved one are in pain.

Pain medication is not pain management, they have learned firsthand.

But a myriad of painful procedures, surgery and implanted devices have also failed to do their jobs.

Then what?

From unexplained neuropathy after surgery to diabetic neuropathy or pain after chemotherapy , too many people are left with unresolved neuropathy.

And they continue to lead debilitated lives, so unfairly.

I came to this conclusion years ago, which is what compelled me to launch Calmare scrambler, an FDA-cleared alternative therapy here in New Jersey in 2011.

Mayo Clinic Researchers Test Scrambler Therapy for Pain

It has no side effects, is painless to undergo. It’s drug-free. The worst case scenario is that the treatment does not work, which happens.

But in more than 75% of the patients we treat, their pain is significantly reduced–or eliminated.

Watch and listen to the patients for whom we have relieved severe chronic pain over the years–

From 10-year-old children to seniors who had battled neuropathy for decades, you will discover someone who has fought the same battle with pain that you do.

Then, we hope you’ll reach out via the contact form below, by emailing us at calmarenj@gmail.com or calling our clinic at (201) 933-4440.

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.

Virginia Woman’s CRPS Causes 10/10 Pain and Feet Lesions

May 26, 2017

Debbie Meade’s son begged for her feet to be amputated so she would no longer suffer with excruciating CRPS pain.

Her debilitating chronic pain had spread and was causing severe swelling in her feet, which eventually caused the skin to tear. The resulting lesions did not heal naturally, leaving her open to the danger of infection.

In addition, her pain level was regularly 10/10 on the McGill Pain Scale.

Arriving here in New Jersey using two canes for mobility, her life was about to change dramatically.

Debbie describes her Calmare Therapy experience (May 2017)
Calmare Scrambler Therapy History and Clinical Trial Outcomes

Calmare Therapy is a drug-free, FDA-cleared treatment that safely scrambles the pain message from the brain. It is painless and has no side effects.

The first study on scrambler therapy was published in 2003 by a team of researchers led by Giuseppe Marineo, professor in Delta Research and Development at the University of Rome Tor Vergata in Italy.

His team found that scrambler therapy was effective in reducing pain symptoms in patients with severe, drug-resistant pain from terminal cancer.

Mayo Clinic physician and scrambler therapy researcher Charles L. Loprinzi, MD, reports on his team’s clinical findings with Healio (2016).

Scrambler Therapy Lessens Chronic Nerve Pain

Calmare (the brand name for the MC-5A scrambler therapy device) was later found to also aid in the lessening or alleviation of chronic nerve pain as a result of:

  • chemotherapy (CIPN)
  • diabetes (diabetic nerve pain)
  • fibromyalgia
  • back and neck pain
  • shingles (PHN)
  • failed back surgery syndrome
  • phantom limb pain
  • other neuropathic nerve pain conditions
Using Calmare to Reduce CRPS / RSD Neuropathy and Physical Symptoms

Clinical Director Dr. Michael Cooney at Calmare Therapy NJ USA has also successfully treated hundreds of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and RSD patients from around the world

Is Where You are Now Ok?

February 1, 2017

dr-cooney-quote

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

A new month always makes me think of what lies ahead.

Many of our new patients have previously resisted trying an alternative pain management treatment because they’ve been constrained by the worry that it “may not work.”

I certainly can’t fault them. By the time most people seeking pain management discover us, they have already endured too many drugs with debilitating side effects, invasive treatments, countless needles, surgeries and enough hospital stays to last a lifetime.

After we discuss the trials they have endured, without success, I say, “But you are here now. You still have hope. You are a survivor.”

And then we get to work firing up our MC-5A Calmare device and attacking the pain in a new way the body has never experienced before.

My point is this–

If you happen to be reading this and are not sure about calling us, call us.

If you’re thinking about emailing us at CalmareNJ@gmail.com to talk about your chronic pain, email us.

Don’t wait. Don’t give up. Don’t let the pain win one more day.

How to find the right pain treatment for you and your pain condition

Dr. kellyDecember 30, 2015

By Robert B. Kelly, D.O.

Pain Management Physician

Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment

Rutherford, New Jersey, USA


Dr. Cooney and I have been helping people overcome all kinds of pain for more than 30 years from our clinic here in Bergen County, New Jersey.

Choosing the right treatment and pain management doctor to meet your personal health goals is a very important decision.

Here at Calmare Therapy NJ, we disagree with the increasingly common treatment plan which consists of handing over a prescription for an opioid painkiller to a patient dealing with acute or chronic pain.

Time and again, we have seen the side effects from some of these drugs are ultimaMan with back pain2_FDPtely more debilitating than the pain. Additionally, there seems to be no end in sight to the U.S.’s pain medication addiction epidemic.

Looking for new or better pain management when you are debilitated by pain–and possibly medication side effects–can be particularly challenging.

I’d like to share some recommendations on the best approach to finding the right pain solution for you.

Whether your discomfort is a result of an acute or chronic pain condition–back and neck pain, lower extremity injury, fibromyalgia, CRPS / RSD, diabetic neuropathy, arthritis, cancer treatment, or pain after surgery–you need to find a way to get your pain under control so you can enjoy the highest quality of life possible.

How do you find a pain management partner?

  • Do some legwork or ask for help from a friend or family member. Reach out through social media sites, either publicly on your timeline, or via private direct message for referrals.
  • Research a local support group for the condition you are battling and seek recommendations from members.
  • Ask your personal doctor, or the physician treating your specific condition, for suggestions.
  • Schedule an appointment with 2-3 different chiropractors or pain management physician specialists to discuss your case and assess if the doctor’s suggested protocol coincides with your treatment philosophy.

Make certain you agree with the doctor’s philosophy on treating the mind and body

While medication can be effective and important for some pain management issues, it certainly isn’t the only tool available when it comes to pain treatment. Be sure to understand (and agree) with the doctor’s physical and emotional strategy for managing, lessening or alleviating your pain.

The unique benefits of Calmare Therapy and physical therapy

Calmare Technology 2012Our team here at Calmare Therapy NJ has been 100 percent committed to using scrambler therapy to “fix” the brain’s misconception that there is pain, when, in fact, it’s simply confused.  In my partnership with Dr. Cooney’s outstanding efforts, particularly within the CRPS / RSD/ PHN / CIPN communities, we have shown time and again that these painless treatments can literally give patients back their former quality of life prior to the injury  or disease resulting in the neuropathic condition.

You can overcome severe neuropathy without drugs!


Calmare Therapy NJ offers an exclusive Patient-to-Patient Program© where you can talk directly with one of our volunteer patients who has the same or similar medical condition and successfully underwent scrambler therapy. 


Physical therapy can also serve as an important part of any pain management program. Pain can be worsened by exercise that isn’t done correctly (or interpreted incorrectly as pain rather than overuse), and a physical therapist can tailor the right exercise regimen for you. Proper exercise slowly builds your tolerance and reduces your pain — you won’t end up overdoing it and giving up because it hurts.

Reach out for pain management help sooner rather than later

As with any medical condition, the longer it goes untreated (or improperly treated) the more Asian woman in painchallenging it can be to overcome. Additionally, if you are foregoing pleasurable events and day-to-day activities due to pain, it’s time to reach out for help from a healthcare provider who has significant expertise in the specific type of injury or condition you are facing.

The reality is that most of us will need professional medical care to help with some kind of pain condition during the course of our lives. In order to achieve the fastest and most successful outcome possible, take your time when selecting your pain management provider.

Mayo Clinic shares another CRPS patient positive outcome after Calmare Therapy

October 23, 2015

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

Slowly but surely, the major research institutions are beginning to recognize what we’ve been doing here in New Jersey for the past four years is truly worth studying and testing–

mayo clinicYesterday, the Mayo Clinic reported on another clinical trial patient battling complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and the remarkable outcome she achieved after undergoing Calmare’s MC-5A scrambler therapy treatments.

Patient Quotation (excerpt):

“I had accepted the fact that I’d probably live my entire life in pain,” she says. “Now, the scrambler is working wonders for me. For the first time in five years, I feel like I’ve finally found a treatment that can permanently change my future.”1

How does Calmare’s scrambler device work?

The Mayo Clinic explains (excerpt):

“Scrambler therapy works by using a nerve stimulation device to mix another signal into the transmission from the damaged nerves to the brain. Basically, it replaces the information that signals pain with information that does not signal pain. The therapy involves placing electrodes connected to the scrambler device on the skin near damaged nerves. The scrambler sends painless electrical signals to those nerves that they relay to the brain. The new signals break the pain cycle and retrain the brain to understand that it is not really experiencing pain.”1

Ensure your Calmare provider has extensive expertise treating CRPS and RSD successfully

I’ve stated this before but it bears repeating:

Calmare is a “provider dependent” therapy:

camare foot image with leadsYour Calmare doctor determines the exact placement of your leads (key to transmitting the pain signal messaging) in accordance with the original injury site.

Depending on the patient’s response, these leads may need to be moved at some point during the 10-treatment series.

The doctor must understand the anatomy of the body and the manner in which the pain message is being transmitted to and from the brain in order for Calmare to optimally do its job.

If the doctor does not accomplish this task, the patient’s pain  and symptom relief can be significantly diminished–or not successful at all.

Calmare Certified Location LogoTwo key questions to ask your potential Calmare provider:

  1. Are you Calmare Certified?
  2. How many patients have you successfully treated with (your specific medical condition): CRPS, RSD, PHN, CIPN, diabetic neuropathy, post-surgical pain…

Scrambler Therapy can relieve debilitating pain and symptoms from several neuropathic conditions

Here in New Jersey, we specialize in treating CRPS and RSD. But we have also achieved outstanding patient outcomes treating many other conditions as well:

How to Prepare for Your Calmare Scrambler Therapy Treatments

October 8, 2015

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

ID-10053921It’s a good thing when I can’t recall how many patients we have treated using Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment since we began offering this revolutionary device in 2011.

Suffice it to say, we have welcomed many people with several different neuropathic conditions–pain after chemotherapy, post-surgical pain, diseases including Shingles, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Myofacial pain–from around the corner here in Bergen County, NJ to as far away as South Africa and Australia.

Once we mutually determine that Calmare may be a viable treatment option for pain and symptom reduction, it’s time to prepare to begin the 10-series treatment protocol.

Patients and families always ask us how to optimally prepare for the upcoming treatments–a very good question.

I thought this would be useful information to share with our blog readers as well.

Dr. Cooney’s Tips and Tools to Prepare for Your Calmare Therapy:
  1. Send us or bring any objective tests ( X-rays, EEG, MRI, EMG or cat scans) for our pre-treatment study).
  2. Wean off as many medications as possible–in partnership with your prescribing doctor/s. (Note: Each patient case is different. We’ll talk with you about your specific medication protocol and how best to address this issue.)
  3. Do not use any skin lotions 24-hours before each treatment.
  4. Wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring some hand-held entertainment to occupy you during each treatment, which lasts about 35 minutes.
  5. Fill out the Calmare NJ New Patient Forms in advance to save time once you arrive.
  6. Don’t be nervous!  The treatments are painless.

We are a positive and spirited team (as we hope you have heard!) and will be 100% sure to make you feel as comfortable as possible from your first visit to your last.
