Teenager with CRPS Fights Back and Wins with Calmare Therapy

December 8, 2017

Here in New Jersey, we have treated many children and teens battling chronic pain, particularly CRPS, over the years.

Prior to discovering scrambler therapy, the majority of these children had been prescribed prescription painkillers, including opioids, and subjected to painful and invasive treatments that failed to lessen or resolve their pain.

We recently treated 15-year-old Maiya, months after she was diagnosed with the condition after she was hit directly in the face and neck with a basketball.

Her family wisely moved quickly to find a drug-free solution to treat her pain, which was concentrated in her upper extremity region, after the painkillers she was prescribed only left her feeling tired and confused.

She tells her compelling story below, followed by Calmare Therapy NJ’s clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney, who provides an insightful overview of her case:

An 87-year-old and a 16-year-old both reduce their chronic pain after Calmare Therapy

January 2, 2017

Rutherford, New Jersey, USA

As 2016 came to a close, our staff reminisced about our patients from around the world who have entrusted us to help them reduce their chronic pain since we began offering Calmare scrambler therapy in 2011.

One of the more memorable weeks included two patients battling the debilitating symptoms from complex regional pain syndrome–CRPS–also called RSD.

Eighty-seven-year-old Ann and 16-year-old Katie (right) both suffered from complex regional Katie Triosipain syndrome (CRPS) symptoms at different stages of life. Both were determined to keep searching for a pain management solution that would empower them to resume a quality of life, no longer dictated by chronic pain and the physical symptoms of this disease.

The patients and their families decided to investigate a non-invasive, alternative pain treatment since traditional medicine was not successful. They discovered Dr. Cooney and his successful outcomes using Calmare scrambler therapy to combat CRPS pain and additional physical symptoms.

After completing the 10-treatment series during the same period, both achieved the lowest pain level they had experienced in years.

Video: Ann and Katie describe their Calmare Therapy treatments following an introduction by our clinical director, Dr. Michael J. Cooney:

Chanelle Checks in Between Hawaii and Australia

August 8, 2016

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

CRPS RibbonTwenty-eight-year-old Chanelle brightened our office during her 10- Calmare Therapy treatments earlier this year. She had been suffering with CRPS for 15 years (yes, it can affect children, teens, adults and seniors) primarily in her upper body, most severely in her left arm).

We started talking back in 2014, and this year she made the arduous 24-hour flight to New Jersey, USA from Australia.

Over the years, she and her loving family had aggressively tried several CRPS pain treatments for her, including:

  • Myriad of medications
  • Acupuncture
  • Physical therapy
  • Nerve blocks
  • Ketamine
  • Two spinal cord stimulator (SCS) trials (first traditional then high-frequency)

Finally, in the spring of 2016, Chanelle arrived at our clinic; after her 10-day treatment protocol,  she achieved an outstanding outcome, and left us nearly pain-free for the first time in more than a decade.

August 2016: Chanelle Sends an Update from Hawaii

Much to my delight, I received this recent update from her on my Facebook profile:

inside airplane“So a couple of weeks ago, i flew to Hawaii to see my partner. Since having the Calmare treatment, that has been the best flight experience for me. I’m usually in agonizing pain on the flight, and wonder why it is I torture myself my getting in a plane.

But this time, I sat back and enjoyed watching movies and arrived…relaxed 😊 !! My arm was even good enough for me to hold a gun long enough to shoot at the range… without pain.”

Why Calmare, Why Now?

This young woman’s story means the world to all of us. Every patient who graces our door has tried every drug, invasive and painful treatments and traveled incredible distances in search of pain treatment, only to be disappointed again. Many are (justifiably) on the verge of giving up hope.

But some have discovered our clinic here in New Jersey and their lives, along with their friends and family, have been changed by the success of scrambler therapy. We wish we could say this treatment for everyone and that it is “the cure” for all chronic pain. But, sadly, this isn’t the case. Nonetheless, we continue to achieve better than 80% success in significantly reducing severe chronic pain for people battling post-surgical pain and neuropathy from other chronic medical conditions.

We welcome our opportunity to help you or a loved loved one battling neuropathy, whether you are newly diagnosed or have suffered with chronic pain for decades, as Chanelle has.

Call us (you can ask for me and I’ll call you back) at 201-933-4440 or email me with your medical history. Let’s get a conversation going. Let’s start fighting back.

 

Brigham Young University Joins Mayo Clinic and Others in Calmare Therapy Trials

October 19, 2015

trialsWe love to share our own patients positive outcomes after scrambler therapy but it’s also important to report on people who have undergone Calmare treatment outside our clinic here in New Jersey.

Brigham Young University researchers recently 1024px-BYU_Medallion_Logo.svgoffered this update during their
Calmare clinical trial, supported by MRI monitoring, on their clinical trial patient outcomes using scrambler therapy treatment.

Along with clinical trials at Johns Hopkins, the Mayo Clinic and other universities, BYU researchers are studying MRI scans to determine exactly how the MC-5A device is altering the pain message in the brain to lessen and even alleviate several chronic pain in people with drug and treatment resistant neuropathy.

BYU Trial patient Jennifer McLean said: 

“It’s just kind of unbelievable dealing with it for so long and then not having the pain there. It’s really nice.” McLean said she feels something she’s not had for a long time: relief.

The constant excruciating, stabbing, pulsating neuropathy in her right hand and fingers is gradually diminishing because a new generation electrical stimulation device is sending another signal to her brain.

“It’s just been such a blessing to have some relief and to know there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel.”

BYU Trial patient Taylor Johnson reported:

Johnson said the pain was so bad he couldn’t stand on the leg. He suffered from this pain for nearly two years due to reflex neurovascular dystrophy. The disease sent pain signals to the brain even though there was no injury. After several treatments, the pain was gone and he was able to run, walk and do whatever activity he wanted.

BYU Trial patient Brock Roblin said after his Calmare treatments:

He had been suffering from intense pain for four years.

Like many others, Roblin had been through that endless loop of prescription medications, including a sleeping pill every night for two years, and the maximum dosage of an anti-convulsant drug. After several scrambler treatments, the burning sensation in the feet that would keep Brock awake at night disappeared. He was also no longer dependent on prescription drugs for pain.

Don’t give up your search for neuropathic pain relief

Calmare Therapy cannot help everyone living with neuropathy, unfortunately. But for people with many kinds of pain that does not respond to traditional therapy or medication, it has greatly improved lives.

We would be happy to talk with you about your specific medical condition. Just fill out the information below so we can get started. Right now, right here. Today.

Dr. Cooney takes a little R&R for family time

Dr. Cooney vaca 2015

August 11, 2015

Even the doctor needs to take a deep breath now and then.

It was time for me to take a breather last week. My wife and I took our daughter away to celebrate her 16th birthday.

She had to pry me away from my patients, but I know a little respite is good for my own health.

We enjoyed a great getaway with some wonderful weather and delicious food.

Time goes by quickly. Enjoy every day.

Welcome back Calmare NJ team member Cathy!

cathyShe’s Back!!

No, it hasn’t been the same without you, dear Cathy, and we are overjoyed that life is back to normal now that you are at the front desk once again.

We missed you more than you know.

XOXO

Di offers an update from her home in South Africa after Calmare Therapy

As a doctor, there is nothing better than hearing positive news from your patients after their treatment is complete. Before I introduced Calmare scrambler therapy in 2011, the vast majority of my patients were from New Jersey or metropolitan New York City.

But since our marked success treating severe chronic pain with scrambler therapy, patients have come here to Rutherford from Australia, Switzerland, Netherlands and the UK and several other countries. It has been so enjoyable to meet people from around the world. Even better, in the majority of cases, we have sent them home feeling better than they have felt in years, sometimes decades.

Cathy, our front desk administrator, and Di.

Di came here from South Africa earlier this year with CRPS. What a delightful person! Her steadfast refusal to surrender to this disease was beyond inspiring for our entire Calmare Therapy NJ team. Even with the demands of a business and busy family, Di knew it was time to step away and defeat the CRPS monster once and for all.

Just this week, we corresponded by email for the first time in a few months.

Here’s an update on how she’s doing:

“Doc, am really feeling like I have a new lease on life.

As strange as it may seem, it took some time to get used to having no pain!  But hey, am now brand new and M___ says he isn’t going to trade me in!!
Thanks for looking after me and getting me to where I am now–to just being able to sleep, to put socks on without being nauseous with pain, and to be able to shower and let the water run over my foot is, well, quite strange still.
But strange is good!
Take care and will stay in touch. Love and a hug.
Di”

May 2, 2014

It’s Kara stompFriday, a perfect day to share some good news:  The Stomp family kindly allowed us to share the positive outcome of their teenage daughter,who arrived here in a wheelchair due to severe CRPS after knee surgery four years ago. Kara is a lovely person with a loving family who would not give up a 4-year fight to find a solution to their daughter’s pain.

Background:

At age 14, Kara was diagnosed with CRPS after surgery for a dislocated kneecap. She spent the next four years undergoing painful, invasive and ultimately unsuccessful pain treatment efforts. By age 18, Kara was wheelchair-bound and living with CRPS symptoms including skin lesions, swelling, discoloration, allodynia and temperature change sensitivity. But her unrelenting father was determined to help his daughter and through his research, discovered Calmare scrambler therapy. Click here to learn more about their experience .
