Teenager Snowboards By for a Post-Calmare Scrambler Therapy Update

February 28, 2019

Last summer, high school football player Austin arrived at our clinic using a cane and could not put weight on his leg/foot.

After surgery for a fractured fibula, he was soon diagnosed with CRPS which caused continued shooting pain; over time small treatment-resistant lesions began to develop on his affected foot (center image).

His family had read about our success treating these lesions and resulting chronic nerve pain from complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) using scrambler therapy.

They flew with Austin from the Southwest for him to undergo treatment and he achieved both pain relief and the lesions on his foot were more than 50% healed after his 2-week treatment (image on right).

Teen Football Star Finds CRPS Pain Relief After Calmare Therapy

Last week, Austin’s parents took the time to let us know how Austin is doing since his scrambler therapy:

Dr. Cooney,
Austin is doing wonderful. It has been a 180 since Calmare treatment, we are ever so grateful to you. Below is a video of him snowboarding!!!! Thank you again for all you do!
Forever Grateful,
Isabel, Duke and Austin

Calmare Booster Therapy Reduces Star’s Fibromyalgia and CRPS Pain

December 17, 2018

Star came to our New Jersey clinic for a 10-treatment series of Calmare Therapy a few years ago, but the degree of severity and length of time she had been battling both fibromyalgia and CRPS brought the pain back over time.

Recently she returned to see Dr. Michael Cooney in Rutherford, NJ for 10 booster treatments; fortunately, she received an even more positive outcome (pain reduction) after the second effort.

Calmare Therapy® (scrambler therapy) is a non-invasive, drug-free solution for pain control and medication-resistant neuropathy.

It uses biophysical “scrambler” technology, a treatment for nerve pain that uses electrodes placed on the skin.

The device works to relieve pain directly at the pain site without any reliance on medication or painful procedures.

Via small electrodes strategically positioned by a specially-trained doctor, a ‘no-pain’ message is transmitted directly to the nerve for a period of approximately 35 minutes per session.

Regardless of severity, pain and physical symptoms caused by the neuropathic condition can be significantly reduced-or even alleviated-during or by the conclusion of the 10-treatment series.

The cause of the neuropathy may be a result of injury, cancer and chemotherapy, surgery, diabetic pain, CRPS / RSD, Shingles/PHN, lower back pain, fibromyalgia (FMS), sciatic neuropathy, chronic neck pain, failed back surgery or phantom limb syndrome.

Calmare Therapy NJ USA Patients Describe Their Treatment Outcomes

For severe cases of neuropathic pain, subsequent Calmare booster treatments are sometimes, but not always, necessary for patients who have lived with the chronic pain condition for a long period of time before undergoing Calmare Therapy treatment.

Scrambler Therapy Benefits

1. FDA-cleared 510(k)-cleared and European CE mark-certified
2. Pain-free
3. Non-invasive
4. Drug-free
5. No side effects

Laurie’s Calmare Booster Treatments Tame CRPS Pain and Physical Symptoms

October 3, 2018

crps treatment

We welcomed back chronic pain warrior, Laurie Mounts, who traveled 3,000 miles from the U.S. Northwest to undergo Calmare booster treatments.

Warriors like this young woman are why we do what we do.

Her unrelenting will to win the CRPS war is an inspiration to all of us.

Laurie has battled a lengthy and severe battle with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) for 10 long years, after a simple fall on the stairs in 2008.

CRPS Can Be More Than Just Severe Chronic Pain

While she aggressively tried prescription medications and other neuropathic pain treatments, they were unsuccessful in reducing her high pain level and associated CRPS symptoms:

Calmare Treatment for CRPS
Allodynia
  • Allodynia
  • Neuropathic pain up to 9/10
  • Skin discoloration
  • Skin tingling, sweats and burning
  • Inability to achieve sustained sleep
  • Brittle hair

Over time, her RSD condition spread from her ankles up to her shoulders, resulting in full body CRPS.

She came to us in 2014 as a last-ditch effort to garner some much-needed relief.

Her outcome was remarkable.

Laurie and her mother Ruth describe her medical history during their first visit to Calmare Therapy NJ USA in 2014.

Calmare scrambler therapy is drug-free, painless and has no side effects. It has been FDA-cleared for nearly a decade.

Laurie Battles Back When Chronic Pain Levels Increase

Due to the longevity and severity of Laurie’s CRPS condition, the disease symptoms slowly returned. In late September 2018,  Laurie and her family returned to New Jersey for additional therapy sessions (boosters) to reduce pain and related symptoms.

After several treatments, Laurie posted this message, which we are sharing with her permission:

“Well, it’s the end of my time here on the East Coast.

I’m currently having my final Calmare booster treatment.

Knowing I can come here to get relief from this pain is so helpful! I don’t know what I would have done without them in my life!

Thank you for all you guys do for all of us CRPS warriors!

I’m so thankful for Doc Cooney and all he does to help with my (and so many others) pain.

He definitely goes above and beyond for his patients.

I’m also so thankful for all of my friends and family for the prayers and thoughts as we’ve battled this disease through the years.

I wouldn’t have made it without you! 🧡🧡

Dr. Michael Cooney is one of only seven Calmare-Certified providers in the United States. He has successfully treated (eliminated or significantly reduced chronic pain) for nearly 500 patients from around the world.

Calmare Therapy Pushes CRPS Pain Down, Down, Down

June 15, 2018

Earlier this year, we treated a 30-something gentleman who battled CRPS for the past four years.

And we use the word ‘battle’ literally–

He shared this message with us recently, permitting us to share it:

“In 2018, Doctor Cooney came into my life to change it for the better.

After almost four years of pain management efforts that included:

  • Intensive physical therapy
  • A myriad of medication from steroids to synthetic heroin
  • X-Rays and MRIs
  • Ablations
  • Various injections
  • Ketamine
  • Trial spinal cord stimulator (SCS)

ONLY Calmare Therapy placed my CRPS into remission.

Prior to beginning my Calmare scrambler therapy sessions, my lowest pain level was 6/10;

after Calmare, therapy sessions my highest pain level is a 4/10.

I am now looking forward to living a normal life, spending time with my loved ones, and even being able to venture back out into the workforce again.

Basically, my whole world has opened up, after years of struggle and pain, pain, pain.

Thank you and God bless you.”

Lauren Writes Letter of Thanks for Her Husband’s Calmare Therapy

May 29, 2018

Robert Vaughn adds his pin to the Calmare NJ USA patient map. May 2018

We were honored to receive this email message from Lauren Vaughn at the conclusion of her husband’s two-week Calmare protocol for CRPS (diagnosed in 2013). The couple generously permitted us to share it below.

“As we approach our last day with you, I wanted to send my sincere thank you!

It has been such a positive experience for my husband and myself! We have seen so much progress!

To see Robert live with 8 or 9 out of a scale of 10 pain level for the past 5+ years has been difficult, to say the least!

You have given us hope for the future!

Within the past two weeks we have observed his pain level decrease to a 3 out of 10! Unbelievable!

Not only is the treatment amazing, but Dr. Cooney and the staff have been such a joy to work with!

From the bottom of our hearts we will be forever grateful!

Thank you for giving our family hope again! Thank you again for your amazing partnership in Robert’s treatment and recovery.”

Quality of life is a gift that few can give and you have certainly given us that back!

Lauren Vaughn

Two years later, she made us laugh out loud at this post (below) on our Facebook timeline:

“Two years ago, I started my Calmare NJ Therapy.

Other than a “zinger” once in a while, I have been pain-free!

Thanks Dr. Cooney and staff.

I live life now!!! Hugs!

Marilyn Green

Are you tired of failed pain management treatments?

Dr. Michael Cooney, clinical director, speaks personally with potential scrambler therapy patients every day.

If you peruse dozens and dozens of our patient stories, you will see one common thread:

“I had just about given up finding a therapy to reduce or eliminate my debilitating pain.”

U.S. Veterans are Covered for Calmare Pain Therapy with Referral

May 6, 2018

The Veteran’s Administration is now covering Calmare scrambler therapy treatments on its VA Fee Basis Program for any patient under the care of a VA physician, using the CPT code 0278T.

All four branches of the U.S. Military have been successfully using scrambler therapy since 2011 and have steadily increased the number of MC-5A devices at its hospitals, including the Department of Veteran’s Affairs.

To obtain medically-covered treatment from a Calmare provider, the patient must obtain a referral for scrambler therapy from a VA-affiliated hospital.

“The U.S. Military was one of the first treatment centers to adopt Calmare to treat injured soldiers who did not respond to pain medication or traditional neuropathic pain treatment,” says Dr. Michael Cooney, clinical director of Calmare Therapy NJ USA.

“Clearly, for them to move add the Calmare CPT code to their list of covered services, they acknowledge the positive outcomes they have achieved.”

U.S. Soldier describes overcoming full-body CRPS after Calmare Therapy

During training sessions for military healthcare personnel, the Calmare Therapy method of pain relief was highlighted as one of their most promising medical treatments.

A Proven, Drug-Free, Painless, Chronic Pain Therapy for Soldiers with No Side Effects

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

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

Calmare Therapy Offered at All Military Branches

How the Calmare Device Reduces or Eliminates Neuropathic Pain

The FDA-cleared MC-5A scrambler therapy device was adopted by the U.S. Armed Forces in 2011 as an alternative to surgery or potentially addictive narcotics.

The technology 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 relief.

For maximum benefit and long-term alleviation of symptoms, multiple treatment sessions are often recommended, depending on the cause and severity of the pain.

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

Today, the American military is one of the world’s largest providers of Calmare Therapy; the device is offered at medical centers in every branch of service.

At Calmare Therapy NJ USA, our clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney, is one of the world’s foremost experts on using the device to treat severe chronic pain in children, teens, adults and seniors.

“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 helped patients regain long-lost mobility after arriving at our clinic using wheelchairs, walkers or canes.”

Schedule Your Calmare Therapy Consultation

If you are a patient at a VA hospital and have been prescribed Calmare scrambler therapy for pain management, contact our highly experienced team, located 10 minutes from New York City, 20 minutes from Newark Airport and about two hours from Philadelphia by calling (201) 933-4440.

Joe is Cane-Free After Battling CRPS for Four Years

May 2, 2018

Calmare

Joe arrived from New York State two weeks ago, using a cane for mobility. His pain level was 8/9 due to a four-year battle with CRPS, after an injury in the workplace.

He tried countless medications and pain management treatments over the years, which were not successful.

His therapy options, other than increasingly strong opioids, were limited.

Joe’s wife decided to try a different strategy–

She began to research alternative medicine options and discovered Calmare Therapy, a drug-free, painless solution to combat chronic nerve pain, particularly nerve pain conditions like RSD / CRPS.

Dr. Michael Cooney specializes in using Calmare scrambler therapy to combat CRPS.

Weeks later, Joe arrived at our clinic in New Jersey, feeling equal amounts of hope and skepticism, fearing he would be disappointed again, going home in the same level of pain.

Joe’s RSD Pain Level Decreases Throughout His Therapy

During the course of his Calmare treatments (once daily for 10 days) Joe’s pain level steadily improved:

  • After the first week, his pain level fell to a 4/5.
  • When he arrived for his sixth session, Joe was no longer using his cane.
  • By the conclusion of his tenth and final treatment, his pain level was reduced further to 3/4, and he was no longer using prescription pain medications.
Calmare
John adds his pin to the Calmare global patient map after his successful pain therapy.

“I wanted to share Joe’s story because he represents some of our patients who do not leave pain-free, but their pain has been significantly reduced, and they are no longer using canes, wheelchairs and other devices to support mobility,” says Dr. Michael Cooney, clinical director at Calmare Therapy NJ USA.

But if you suffer from neuropathy, you can certainly appreciate the vast quality-of-life improvement managing a pain level of ¾ versus 8/9.

When you consult with Dr. Cooney and his team of scrambler therapy professionals, he will explain the variables that will play a role in your eventual outcome.

That’s right, you will be speaking with our clinical director personally about your medical history. Why?

“Calmare is not right for every patient,” says Dr. Cooney.

“By speaking with patients, I can assess if scrambler therapy is a viable treatment option.”

Would you like to have a phone conference with Calmare clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney

Terrific!

Burning Nights CRPS Founder Victoria Abbott-Fleming Visits Calmare Therapy NJ Clinic

March 28, 2018

people united in the war on CRPS

On Monday, we were honored to welcome Victoria Abbott-Fleming, the founder of Burning Nights – CRPS Support, a UK-headquartered CRPS advocacy and support organization for sufferers worldwide, and her husband Michael to our clinic.

We have been mutual supporters for years and I have written articles which were published on the Burning Nights website:

Calmare Therapy – A Q&A with Dr. Michael Cooney

A Progress Update on Scrambler Therapy to Combat CRPS

Helping Children and Teens Battle CRPS with Calmare Therapy

Dr. Damon Orlando from Studio City, CA visited our clinic to shadow Dr. Cooney as he treated patients battling chronic pain using Calmare scrambler therapy. (July 2017)

Victoria, a CRPS sufferer herself since 2003, had a sample scrambler therapy treatment and we enjoyed a great talk.

One of our CRPS patients from Alabama was in town for  booster treatments. She was delighted to meet Victoria, whom she follows on social media.

We are committed to partnerships and building friendships with like-minded CRPS warriors, like Victoria, Dr. Tim from India,

A smiling Emily Blake is shown with Dr. Cooney and Dr. Timakkondu, visiting Calmare physician from Madurai, India. (October 2017)

(Dr. Kuppusami Timakkondu, also a Calmare provider) and other doctors who have visited the clinic to learn, train and share their expertise on drug-free pain management alternatives, like Calmare Therapy.

In conjunction with helping our patients from around the world, these alternative healthcare providers inspire me to do more, work harder and forge more powerful relationships that will ultimately benefit patient care.

Together, we will resolve neuropathy–without reliance on opioids or invasive procedures– and help return people in pain to the healthy and fulfilling lives they so richly deserve.
