Shingles, also known as herpes zoster, is a painful skin rash caused by the varicella zoster virus. Often, people with this condition may see the rash disappear, only to be left with debilitating nerve pain.
We have successfully helped to reduce or alleviate nagging Shingles nerve pain, called postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), a notoriously treatment-resistant type of neuropathy.
While pain medications are often ineffective in controlling this type of pain, non-invasive Calmare Therapy has performed very well in terms of reducing and sustaining nerve pain.
“Similar to people left with nerve pain after chemotherapy, Shingles patients may also face neuropathic pain,” explains Dr. Michael Cooney. “But based upon our consistent success treating Shingles pain with scrambler therapy, people with PHN now have a viable treatment option that is opioid-free and painless to undergo.”
