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–
Yesterday, 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:
Your 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.
Two key questions to ask your potential Calmare provider:
- Are you Calmare Certified?
- 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:
