Arachnoiditis Warrior is Pain-Free after Calmare Therapy

Updated: February 24, 2021

By Dr. Michael Cooney

Pure joy.

When someone whose life has been sidelined by chronic nerve pain finally achieves pain relief–or a pain-free state–the feeling we get is pure joy.

As I’ve stated over the years, most of the time, people with chronic pain arrive at our clinic feeling skeptical, exhausted, financially spent and almost numb to the possibility of finally winning the war against pain.

This week, Sharlene is undergoing her second week of treatment with us after carefully weighing her decision to trust us with her health while helping lessen her pain after a 30-year battle with arachnoiditis. This debilitating condition causes chronic shooting pain, the feeling of bugs crawling on the skin, weak legs and even neurological problems.

Better yet, we’ll let her tell it:

One of the many reasons Calmare Pain Therapy has changed the face of pain management is the fact that is can lessen, or in Shar’s case, eliminate neuropathy caused by various types of injury or diseases, like arachnoiditis, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) after Shingles, fibromyalgia and light bruises to extensive surgery.

You won’t find needles, pain or a prescription drug list at Calmare Therapy, either.

This FDA-cleared alternative pain management therapy is non-invasive and has 0 side effects.

Yes, there are no side effects or pain when undergoing Calmare, other than you may be more tired for a period of time during and up to a month after treatment.

That’s it.

If you or a loved one feels that you are at the end of the line of pain management options, you are not.

Sharlene posted this Facebook message near the end of her 10 Calmare treatments and gave us permission to share it:

Reach out and let’s talk about your battle. You and I will speak directly and there is no consultation fee, of course.

Call our clinic, located outside New York City, at (201) 933-4440 or email us at info@calmaretherapynj.com.

Let’s start fighting back against your pain today, no more waiting for tomorrow.

Calmare scrambler therapy is not right for everyone experiencing neuropathic pain; after a clinical consultation (sometimes performed by phone for out of region 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.

We are now accepting appointments for existing Calmare patients seeking one or more booster treatments. If you are transferring to us from another Calmare provider, we will be happy to confirm a prompt phone consultation for you with our clinical director Dr. Cooney. During this call, he will obtain medical history information and discuss your specific pain management goals before booster therapy is scheduled.

In addition, we ask that you complete our New Patient forms in advance, so as not to delay your scheduled treatment.

Watch Nearly 100 Calmare Patient Testimonials

December 15, 2020

By Dr. Michael Cooney, Clinical Director

This time of year, I become rather sentimental, thinking about the previous 11 months and what we accomplished. Certainly, this year has been one for the record books (and not in a good way).

Remarkably, even since the onset of Covid-19 in March, we still welcomed new patients battling treatment-resistant chronic pain, who were determined to reach outside the confines of traditional pain management options (pain medications and invasive procedures) and traveled from around the country to undergo Calmare Therapy.

Masked, treating only one patient at a time, with family and friends waiting in their cars, we fired up the MC-5A Calmare device, and went to war, fighting chronic nerve pain as a result of disease or injury.

This week, I took a look at the Calmare YouTube channel for the first time in ages.

I was shocked by how many patient success stories we have posted since we introduced this little-known painless treatment for neuropathy back in 2011.

I lost count, but we are closing in on nearly 100 first-person patient reviews; I hope you will watch a few patient review videos to learn more about how Calmare works, especially if you are considering treatment with us in 2021.

If we haven’t had an opportunity to speak directly about your chronic pain battle and mutually determine if Calmare might be right for you, please feel free to reach out to us at the clinic by calling (201) 933-4440 or email us at info@calmaretherapynj.com.

We are confirming new patients into May 2021 and hope you add you to our family of patients early next year.

As always, we will make every effort to accommodate patients traveling from outside the US.

2020 has been a rough year for all of us, but there are many better days up ahead on the horizon. I can see them. Until then, take good care.

Free Calmare NJ Consultation and Treatment Nov. – Dec. 2020

New patients receive one 35-minute treatment at no charge

People seeking pain relief for medication and treatment-resistant chronic nerve pain will receive a first-time-ever free Calmare Therapy®  treatment, if they undergo the 10-treatment therapy protocol during Nov. – Dec. 2020.

“We hope this savings will help children, teens, adults and seniors make the decision to try an alternative therapy to reduce or eliminate their chronic nerve pain,” says Calmare NJ USA clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney.

In addition, new patients also receive a pre-treatment consultation, either by phone or in-person. During this discussion, patients have a firsthand opportunity to ask questions about scrambler therapy, including the customized treatment strategy for the placement of each Calmare lead.

Calmare Therapy (scrambler therapy) is an FDA-cleared alternative pain management therapy to lessen or reduce medication and treatment-resident chronic pain for children (age 10+), adolescents, adults and seniors.

The therapy is a non-invasive, painless treatment that is drug-free and has no side effects.

Regardless of pain level and physical symptoms, several neuropathic conditions can be significantly reduced—or even alleviated—after a series of 10 Calmare treatments, once per day.

Since 2011, Dr.  Cooney has personally treated more than 1,000 patients from the U.S. and around the world suffering from chronic, high-intensity neuropathic pain.

He is one of only seven Certified Calmare doctors in the United States (2020).

Why Calmare is a radically different pain treatment

Calmare is a new therapy for chronic pain

When someone is injured, the brain sets up a process to heal the injury. For example, cells carry away dead tissue or it increases blood flow to the area. Eventually, the brain realizes the injury has healed and it cuts off the pain message.

But for some, the brain never sends that pivotal message saying “there’s no more injury here so you can stop the pain signal.”

That’s where the scrambler device comes in. Using several small electrodes (think an EKG) carefully placed in the region of the injury, the technology sends a mild “no pain” message to the brain through the electrodes.

Essentially, the scrambler machine “overrides” the brain’s confused message and corrects it to the ‘no pain here” message.

How Do I Set-Up My Calmare consultation?

Potential scrambler therapy patients should follow these four easy steps below: (feel free to reach out to us with questions!):

  1.  Review the Calmare NJ USA website to understand how scrambler therapy can relieve severe chronic nerve pain.
  2. Read or watch a few video testimonials by more than 75 patients who have shared their Calmare NJ USA treatment experiences on our Case Studies page and our YouTube channel.
  3. Contact the Calmare NJ USA clinic to schedule your in-person (we follow CDC guidelines for COVID-19 safety precautions) video or phone consultation. During this you will speak personally with Dr. Cooney about your medical history, previous pain relief efforts, current medication use and your pain management goals.
  4. If you and Dr. Cooney mutually agree to proceed with treatment, your 10-day therapy cycle will be scheduled, beginning on a Monday, and held at the same time each day, for two weeks (10 business days).

For questions, please email our Calmare team at info@calmaretherapynj.com or call our clinic directly at (201) 933-4440.

US Military Veterans Covered for Calmare Chronic Pain Therapy

October 12, 2020

Veterans nationwide with medication and treatment-resistant chronic pain (neuropathy) can now undergo Calmare Therapy with Dr. Michael Cooney at Calmare Therapy NJ USA in Rutherford, New Jersey.

NOTE: A written referral for Calmare must be provided by a VA Hospital physician

Dr. Michael Cooney, clinical director, Calmare Therapy NJ USA, located in Rutherford, NJ, is a VA-approved, OptumServe in-network provider of Calmare scrambler therapy (CPT Code 0278T), an FDA-cleared, non-invasive therapy to combat chronic nerve pain as a result of injury, surgery or disease.

The four branches of the U.S. Military have been using scrambler therapy since 2011, increasing the number of Calmare MC-5A devices at its hospitals, including the Department of Veteran’s Affairs.

“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.

“As an in-network OptumServe provider, we can help many veterans reduce neuropathic pain, especially those for whom medications and other traditional pain management therapies have failed to control their pain.”

How the Calmare device works painlessly to reduce chronic nerve pain

The FDA-cleared MC-5A scrambler therapy device (the brand name is Calmare) works by sending a “no-pain” signal through strategically-placed electrodes on the patient’s skin.

These signals override the native pain message, reducing the pain intensity and often offering immediate pain relief.

The long-term success achievements—at no added risk to the soldier–has made it an effective weapon against the “War on Pain.”

Calmare has no side effects and is painless to undergo.

While the treatment does not work for everyone, it has achieved am 80% success rate overall. Dr. Cooney has successfully treated nearly 1,000 patients since he underwent training to use the MC-5A device in 2011.

“Time and again, we have seen the Calmare device help people regain control of their lives and resume a healthy quality-of-life,” Dr. Cooney notes. “We have seen many people regain independent mobility after arriving at our clinic using wheelchairs, walkers or canes.”

Dr. Cooney says the success of the scrambler therapy device has been the highlight of his 35-year career in pain management.

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:

  • Cancer and chemotherapy
  • Chronic nerve pain
  • Phantom limb syndrome
  • Chronic back pain
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Neuralgias
  • Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS or RSD)
  • Diabetic neuropathy
  • Shingles (PHN)
  • Failed back surgery
  • Brachial plexus neuropathy
  • Sciatic and lumbar pain
  • Diagnosed neuropathy

Instructions for US veterans to schedule Calmare

  2. Contact the V.A.’s OptumServe (also called “Optum”) department and submit the referral to them. Request therapy to be provided by Michael Cooney.

Calmare NJ Accept Patients from Travel Advisory States

August 17, 2020

Understandably, traveling to New Jersey (or anywhere, for that matter) these days is complex. We’ve recently received calls from upcoming patients who are confused about their ability to enter our state if they are traveling from one of the 31 states (as of 8/17/20) listed on the New York, New Jersey, Connecticut Travel Advisory List.

Important Note:  Traveling to New York/New Jersey to undergo healthcare treatment is permissible; the self-quarantine is voluntary and compliance is expected.

“Travelers from impacted states should self-quarantine at a hotel, or other temporary lodging. Individuals should only leave the place of self-quarantine to seek medical care/treatment or to obtain food and other essential items.”

NJ State COVID-19 Information Hub

We do recommend that you speak with your local lodging provider about any COVID-19 operational changes and current precautionary measures.

Should you need recommendations for local hotels, please visit our New Patients page and click on Hotel & Travel Information.

The Good News

Dr. Cooney and the Calmare team use every precautionary measure to protect patients and staff from possible virus transmission.

The Governor of New Jersey has been very conservative regarding the reopening phases for our state (no indoor dining, indoor gyms or indoor gatherings of more than 25 people).

Right now, our state’s transmission rate is below 1%, after a blip upward around the Fourth of July. This is one of the lowest COVID rates in the nation at this time.

At our clinic, we continue to treat only one patient in the clinic at a time and follow all CDC and State of NJ Department of Health precautionary guidelines.

Since we are keeping our staff as bare bones as possible, you may only come into direct contact with Dr. Michael Cooney, our clinical director, since he is the sole treatment provider.

Certainly, we are living in crazy times. But many people are still living with uncontrolled chronic pain. We can’t “wait” to help people in pain, living day-after-day with a diminished quality of life.

Therefore, following state requirements, we are continuing to move forward, treating our patients with fastidious care, supported by COVID precautionary measures in place.

Pain waits for no one, not even a pandemic. But we will fight back with a safe and comforting environment to provide treatment, just like we have since 2011.

Please feel free to contact Dr. Cooney directly if you have questions or concerns about your future Calmare Therapy treatments.

Until we welcome you to New Jersey, stay safe, stay secure and may you have many low-pain days and nights.
