New Mother Describes CRPS Pain Relief after Calmare Therapy

May 27, 2021

Erin shown smiling again with Dr. Michael Cooney and her beautiful baby.

Sometimes the words of our patients are the only words needed:

“Many of you have been asking what CRPS is like, how I treated it and ultimately failed while doing so.

I wanted to create this video to show that there is HOPE amongst this terrible disease. I wouldn’t lie by sharing all of this information, I have friends who suffer with CRPS and I know the desperation.

I’m here to pass along some hope, an understanding that there IS something that works!

Allow me to set the stage–

Before I left for Calmare treatment with Dr. Michael Cooney in New Jersey, I was a new mother, nearly bedridden and unable to take care of my home and or life.

Today, I can truly see the other side of the rainbow.”

Calmare NJ USA Opens Summer Appointment Schedule

April 27, 2021

As travel opportunities continue to reopen worldwide, we are now scheduling appointments for new patients and booster treatment appointments beginning mid-June-July 2021.

The Calmare team, including Dr. Michael Cooney, is fully vaccinated against Covid-19. We continue to support all the virus prevention guidelines recommended by the CDC.

We will continue to schedule one patient in the clinic at a time as a precautionary measure. Doing so does reduce the number of daily appointments, so please reach out promptly.

Calmare NJ USA clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney and patient.

No fee phone consultations are required for all potential patients. We request that people interested in pursuing Calmare first learn more about the therapy on these web pages prior to scheduling your consultation.

What is Calmare?

How Does Calmare Work?

What Types of Chronic Pain May Be Suitable for Calmare Therapy?

When new/future patients have some basic understanding about how non-invasive scrambler therapy is performed–and how it can lessen or eliminate chronic pain–helps us focus our discussion more specifically on the exact nature of your neuropathy and understand your pain management goals after therapy.

Any essential reason for this consultation, which is held only with our clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney, is because Calmare is not right for everyone.

We will not treat patients for whom Dr. Cooney does not feel there is a high probability of pain reduction after scrambler therapy treatments.

If you would like to schedule a new consultation or booster treatments, please complete the quick form below, and we’ll get back to you within 48 hours of receipt of your message. If you prefer to call our New Jersey clinic, please reach out at (201) 933-4440 between 10 am and 5 pm weekdays.

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.

Meet other people like you who have undergone Calmare Therapy in NJ

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.

May 22, 2020

As we prepare to honor our veterans lost in battle on Memorial Day 2020, we felt it was appropriate to announce that the U.S. Military has expanded the availability of Calmare scrambler therapy to 16 military medical centers and two VA locations.

These facilities are generally restricted for use by military personnel, their dependents and other eligible individuals.

Dr. Michael Cooney, Calmare nj USa clinical director,  is also an approved Calmare scrambler therapy provider for veterans living in New Jersey. Veterans must have a written referral from a V.A. physician to schedule therapy.

Dr. Michael Cooney is a New Jersey VA Hospital In-Network Provider

Soldiers, veterans and their families living with chronic nerve pain do not need to turn to more surgery, Ketamine treatments, spinal cord stimulators (SCS) and other invasive procedures for pain relief.

“The U.S. Military was one of the first treatment centers to recognize Calmare’s capacity to substantially reduce or eliminate nerve pain without using invasive procedures, needles, medications or surgeries,” explains Dr. Cooney.

Chronic pain conditions suitable for Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment

Using a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical approach, this pain management approach treats neuropathic conditions caused by a variety of medical conditions including:

  • Chronic nerve pain
  • Phantom limb syndrome
  • Chronic back pain
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Neuralgias

Successfully Battling CRPS Pain During CRPS Awareness Month

November 11, 2019

CRPS Patient Nearly pain Free after Calmare Therapy
Erin and Dr. Cooney say goodbye after her successful scrambler therapy treatments.

A Facebook comment posted by Erin’s mother this morning:

“How can I thank you for giving us our daughter back?

Her treatments have completely changed her—body, mind, and spirit, Dr. Cooney!

I pray she remains in remission. This is nothing short of a miracle!!!”


Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) Awareness Month is recognized in November around the world.

I was particularly pleased that Erin’s arduous five-year battle with this notoriously difficult-to-treat condition was overcome after 10 treatments of Calmare scrambler therapy.

Erin, now 29, was diagnosed with CRPS after a surgical procedure in 2014. Since then, she has been living with chronic pain in her leg as high as 8 to 10 on the Pain Scale.

The Kentucky native tried countless pain medications, injections and even additional surgery, without significant pain relief.

Last Friday, after 10 Calmare treatments, her pain level was a consistent 1/10 for the first time in five years.

What is a ‘Provider Dependent’ Therapy?

October 23, 2019

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

Calmare Certified Location Logo

The ultimate success of your Calmare Therapy depends on several variables.

In my opinion, other than being correctly pre-qualified as a patient candidate, the doctor administering the scrambler therapy will have a critical impact on your overall pain management success.

Therefore, your Calmare provider must have extensive expertisetraining and clinical skill to accurately diagnose the precise location of the original pain site/s and set the MC-5A Calmare technology accurately to support pain relief.

Four key Calmare provider responsibilities:

  1. Strategically positioning each of the scrambler therapy leads on the patient in accordance with the original injury and current pain regions
  2. Setting, overseeing and adjusting the device settings during each of the 10 treatments
  3. Managing and responding to ongoing patient feedback
  4. Monitoring day-by-day pain management levels based on patient input.

 I will be your Calmare provider, 100 percent of the time, from start to finish ─ no assistants, no support staff. 

The placement of the leads (patches), attached to each of the algorithms, as you can see below, must be precisely positioned in order to successfully alleviate the nerve pain.

If these leads are placed in the wrong area, this lessens the overall capability of the Calmare MC-5A technology to optimally perform its job of lowering your pain and lessening any related physical symptoms.

As a Calmare provider since 2011, I have treated more than 1,000 patients from around the world–successfully.

I have also served as an expert Trainer for new doctors introducing Calmare.

This is a responsibility I take very seriously.

What to look for in your Calmare provider

Clinical Director Dr. Michael Cooney places the scrambler therapy leads on a CRPS patient.

The most experienced Calmare Therapy providers have received a careful review and on-site examination by the company’s administrators, who may or may not designate the top providers as Calmare Certified.

I strongly encourage you to seek out these providers for your therapy.

Secondly, ask the provider you are considering how many patients they have treated with your specific chronic pain condition ─ back and neck pain, post-surgical pain, RSD / CRPS / fibromyalgia, pain after chemotherapy, diabetic neuropathy, etc.

Your Calmare technology will be most successful when your chosen provider has advanced expertise in the placement of each lead.

Finally, peruse the internet and read reviews about the provider you are considering.

Get firsthand information about what scrambler therapy is really like by connecting directly with our previous patients.

Speak with Our Calmare Therapy Clients

At Calmare NJ USA, we offer an exclusive program called the Patient-2-Patient program, where you can be in contact with one of our previous patients who has a similar medical condition to your own.

Who better to share their Calmare treatment experiences than our own patients?

Anyone choosing Calmare should ensure the treatment is performed by a healthcare professional specially-trained in the diagnosis and treatment of several types of advanced neuropathy.

As a friendly reminder, I am happy to speak with people living with treatment-resistant chronic pain anytime. Feel free to call my office at (201) 933-4440 or email us at info@calmaretherapynj.com.

Wishing you and your loved ones a low pain day.

Dr. Michael Cooney

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.

Complete the eCard below and Dr. Cooney will reach out to you directly, or call our clinic located just outside New York City at 201-933-4440.
