Oregonian Nurse Chooses Calmare Therapy for CRPS Chronic Pain

November 7, 2017

We continue to welcome an influx of healthcare professionals seeking treatment for their own medication and treatment-resistant neuropathies.

This is an important honor for us and we are pleased to share another medical professional who achieved pain relief success from Calmare Therapy, registered nurse Kathryn Talenda–

Kathryn suffered from diagnosed CRPS for 10 long years.

She developed the condition (one she had never heard of) after a right foot sprain.

After trying every therapy from Botox to PT, she was debilitated by even more pain.

Eventually, she let her nursing license expire, as she was no longer able to work.

Not willing to give up, Kathryn traveled 3,000 to Calmare NJ USA, arriving with a consistent pain level of 8.5 / 10.

She explains what happened next below:

Are You Battling Medication and Treatment-Resistant Chronic Pain?

Most of our patients, who come from around the globe, have already tried every pill and procedure available, including spinal cord stimulators and Ketamine, but are still in pain every day.

Why Calmare Therapy is a completely different type of pain management:

  • Non-invasive
  • FDA-cleared
  • Drug-free
  • Painless

West Virginia Woman Battles CRPS after Carpel Tunnel Surgery

October 17, 2017

On Friday, Tonya Shuler completed her final Calmare treatment and prepared to head home to West Virginia, pain-free. A personal trainer, she was diagnosed with CRPS a year ago, after undergoing carpel tunnel surgery.

The majority of her chronic 9/10-level pain was in her arm and hand.

Before coming to New Jersey, the married mother of three adult children had been prescribed several different painkillers including:

  • Gabapentin
  • OxyCondone
  • Cymbalta

None of these drugs offered any significant pain relief and she was also uncomfortable using opioids for an extended period of time.

Eventually, she also tried nerve blocks and injections, which were also ineffective.

Like so many other living with chronic nerve pain she and her family felt like they were out of options. And Tonya’s pain range began to spread.

Tonya heard about Calmare Therapy, an FDA-cleared, painless alternative therapy for neuropathic pain on a CRPS support group website. Since it had no side effects, she and her family decided to try it.

She began scrambler therapy treatment on October 2 and finished Friday, October 13.

“Tonya arrived with a pain level near a 10/10,” Dr. Cooney explains. “But after her final session this morning, she is leaving us pain-free and is off all pain medications.”

Where Do You Turn When Traditional Treatments and Painkillers Don’t Work?

Dr. Cooney says patients often suffer for years before seeking out opioid-free alternative therapy for neuropathic chronic pain.

“The healthcare industry usually prescribes prescription painkillers as the first treatment for chronic pain,” he says. “But in many cases, these drugs don’t reduce pain and become less effective the longer they are used.”

One of six Certified Calmare providers in the U.S., Dr. Cooney introduced scrambler therapy to his practice in 2011 to help his treatment-resident patients battling chronic pain. Today, he treats patients from around the world, including Australia, South America, Israel, Canada and Europe.

To learn more, call our patient and friendly Calmare team at (201) 933-4440 or email us at CalmareNJ@gmail.com. International patients may set up a phone-in consultation with Dr. Cooney by confirming a date/time in advance.

Welcoming Dr. Timakkondu, Calmare Physician from India

September 28, 2017

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

Dr. T and Emily Black_9.2017
A smiling Emily Blake is shown with Dr. Cooney and Dr. Timakkondu, visiting Calmare physician from Madurai, India (9/27/17).

We’re honored to welcome Dr. Kuppusami Timakkondu,  a highly regarded Calmare provider from India who is observing here at the clinic this week.

Dr. Timakkondu is particularly interested in our CRPS, fibromyalgia and trigeminal neuritis treatment protocols.

We’re shown here with superstar patient, Emily Blake, who is undergoing booster treatments with us this week. You may recall Emily’s battle with CRPS was chronicled by her daily newspaper in Indiana.

While Emily’s pain level had risen to a 5/10, after her third booster treatment yesterday, September 27, her pain level is down to 1/10, thankfully.

Calmare is a Provider Dependent Therapy. Why You Should Choose Wisely

While Dr. Timakkondu and I may live and practice pain management at opposite ends of the globe, we are united in our war against chronic pain.

Thank you for your insight, your candor and your friendship, doctor.

Is Your Pain Management Failing You?

The Calmare Therapy NJ USA clinic is often a ‘last stop’ for people in pain who have tried all the drugs, injections, surgeries and other painful and invasive therapies to stop their chronic pain.

Scrambler therapy is painless, drug-free and has no side effects. The biggest risk factor is that the therapy will not reduce your pain.

But the majority of people who have undergone scrambler therapy have significantly lessened their neuropathy to a ‘manageable level’ or eliminated their pain completely (our goal).

If you’d like to find out if scrambler therapy might be right for you, call us at 201-933-444, email us at CalmareNJ@gmail.com or complete the eCard below:

#1 Top Trend for Pain Management in 2017: Alternative Therapies

February 15, 2017

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

yahoo-news-logoThere has not been a lot of good news about pain management in the medical arena lately.

(If you are reading this message, you or a loved one may be battling chronic pain, so I don’t need to rehash what you already know.)

Clearly, opioids and peripheral drugs that fall into that category, are often not the solution to many types of pain.

I was delighted to read Yahoo’s predictions that put “Growth in Alternative Therapies” at the top of their list for pain management solutions that would garner the most attention this year.

We launched Calmare at our New Jersey pain management clinic in 2011 as an alternative emi-hewatt-having-calmare-treatment-_10-16neuropathic pain solution for people who have already endured invasive (painful) treatments, inpatient procedures, surgery and baskets full of prescription painkillers that didn’t work.

Not only can opioids fail to provide lasting pain relief, their side effects can be worse than the pain.

Alternative therapies, like scrambler therapy, take a less invasive approach and many have achieved outstanding clinically-proven outcomes for people battling a plethora of chronic pain conditions.

Tools for Choosing Your Alternative Medicine Provider

If you are seeking alternative treatment, perform due diligence beforehand–

  • Find out what clinical trials have been conducted on patients by medical research professionals and read the reports/findings.calmare-patient2patient
  • Ask the provider to put you in touch with other patients who have the same condition so you can gauge their feedback and outcome in making your decision to proceed.
  • Speak with your medical insurer to determine how you can submit for coverage, either in advance or by post-treatment reimbursement.
  • Call the clinic and speak with the doctor who would be treating you. Is he/she performing a sales pitch or asking about your medical history, previous treatment efforts, medication usage and ultimate goal for pain therapy?

Finally, don’t assume the physician currently treating your neuropathy is familiar with the alternative treatment you are considering. Even today, many doctors are often most comfortable with ‘traditional’ medical treatments.

While I certainly respect that position, what is the treatment plan for the patient who has undergone all the traditional medical therapies–without success?

How to Explain Your Pain to a Doctor

April 20, 2016

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney

(I’m honored to have this article featured on SpineUniverse.com):

An experienced chiropractor has tips to help you get the care you need at your next appointment

Prescription
Prescription

For more than three decades, I’ve been treating patients with acute and chronic pain from around the corner here in Rutherford, New Jersey to as far away as Australia and South Africa.

From our patient’s first consultation to the last treatment office visit, the success of any pain treatment we prescribe is contingent upon us (the health care provider) accurately treating the root cause of your pain.

As the patient, precisely describing your acute pain or neuropathic pain is a “high stakes” conversation.

I can read your medical history, referring doctor reports and lab results, but this is all secondary to understanding each patient’s pain mechanics.

It is absolutely essential that this is communicated to your pain management provider as accurately as possible.

A 13-year-old boy with RSD says goodbye to his wheelchair after Calmare Therapy

March 12, 2016

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

There are few outcomes more satisfying than when our Calmare patients are able to throw the wheelchair they arrived in the back of the car because they no longer need it.

And when this happens with a pediatric patient, well, there isn’t a dry eye in the clinic.

Michael K. and his mother Dianna came to us from New York after they had exhausted several other treatment efforts, including a spinal cord stimulator (SCS) trial. He was also using the usual laundry list of pain medications, including Gabapentin.

Eventually his parents constructed a wheelchair ramp in the front of the house anticipating Michael would be disabled for the long-term.

He was injured playing middle school football and the RSD quickly grabbed hold of both of his feet, leaving him unable to put any weight on them. He also experienced medication and treatment-resistant neuropathy resulting in debilitating chronic pain.

An honor student, his discomfort became so severe he eventually had to leave school.

Michael left us pain-free, after arriving here at a 10/10 on the pain scale.

He has big plans once he gets home, starting with returning to school to be with his friends, where every 13-year-old kid should be.

Trish travels across the world to try Calmare Therapy

December 1, 2015

Posted by the Calmare NJ Team

If you could discover something to lessen or alleviate your pain and renew your quality of life, you’d go to the end of the earth to get it.


Trish and her daughter did just that.

Trish and Dr. CHer life was increasingly sidelined by the effects of CRPS after an injury to her thumb five years ago. With fortitude and resilience,  she underwent treatments, tried various medications, submitted to nerve blocks and other painful procedures in search of a cure to her neuropathic pain, without any marked success.

But she and her family refused to surrender to this disease.

After reading about other people who had achieved significant pain and symptom relief Trish on machinewith Calmare scrambler therapy performed by chiropractor Dr. Michael Cooney in New Jersey, USA, (including some of her fellow Aussies) she and her daughter ultimately decided it was worth the gamble (and the long, long 24-hour flight).

We are delighted to present Trish’s special video story below, which she generously offered to share:

A few weeks after she was back home safe and sound in Australia, her daughter dropped us this message:

“So just letting you know mum walked the dog with me last night around the block! First time in years and years!!”

Calmare Therapy warrior Jamie checks in since his 2012 treatment

August 28, 2015

Calmare scrambler therapy is not a “cure” for RSD or CRPS, unfortunately.

But in Jamie 2_8.2015the best possible scenario for patients who undergo the 10-treatment series, it can put the severe pain and physical symptoms:

  • allodynia
  • severe temperature fluctuations
  • sensitivity to touch
  • debilitating pain and muscle weakness

into a remission state and restore the patient’s quality of life.

As you may know from our patient stories, we are treating many children, teens and young adults with this condition, many successfully.

Some patients, like Jamie, who we treated for shoulder pain three years ago, have never needed  additional scrambler therapy “booster treatments” but some patients do need them periodically. From my experience, most patients who require boosters need fewer as time goes on and they can sustain a pain recurrence for longer periods of time.

Jamie’s mother Joan was kind enough to check in last week and shared the following:

Jamie_8.2015“Here is a blast from the past. This is Joan.  In Jan/Feb 2012 you fixed my son’s shoulder pain.  Jamie is doing great shoulder wise. Almost 6 ft. tall and has his learner’s permit!

Here he is out in the back yard with a friend throwing a Frisbee so I took a few photos for you. Left arm/shoulder doing just fine as you can see!

Thanks again. I do not even want to think about what life would have been like these last 3 years if you hadn’t helped him.”

It’s hard to describe what these messages mean to all of us from former patients. For children and young adults who are riddled with debilitating neuropathy is particularly difficult.

But when we receive these kind of messages? It makes all the daily challenges more than worth it.

Thank you for reaching out Joan. Great to hear from you. And to Jamie–be careful on the roads!
