Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) affects many people who have undergone chemotherapy treatment. This treatment and medication-resistant nerve pain can be severely debilitating.
Michele had undergone chemo in 2012. Since that time, she suffered from CIPN, even though she is cancer-free today, thankfully. After trying traditional pain management options–pain medications and procedures to lessen the nerve pain–and achieving no sustained pain relief–she traveled from Connecticut to New Jersey to try Calmare scrambler therapy.
The US FDA cleared scrambler therapy for CIPN treatment in 2009. Since then, several clinical trials from the nation’s most prestigious medical research hospitals have also found that scrambler therapy has been markedly successful in treating post-chemotherapy nerve pain.
Of the 16 patients we treated, essentially all reported some benefit,
including 4 whose pain resolved to “0.”
By the end of her treatment cycle, she no longer felt pain (for the first time since 2012). She did identify feeling ‘achy,’ but this short-term feeling is to be expected after living with neuropathy for so long. We expect this feeling to dissipate during her rest and recovery period.
Due to the longevity of her nerve pain, she may eventually require a booster treatment in the event the pain should resume. But time will tell. Nonetheless, we were elevated to send this cancer warrior back to Connecticut cancer-free and pain-free for the first time in more than a decade.
