Star Celebrates Overcoming CRPS Pain with Calmare Therapy

April 18, 2017

Human Resource Manager Star from Alabama battled CRPS for seven years. Since 2010, she tried all the prescription pain medications and (often painful) invasive treatments, without success.

Meanwhile, her pain level continued to increase.

By chance, she discovered Calmare Therapy on Facebook.

After performing due diligence about the treatment and its success treating CRPS, she chose Dr. Michael Cooney to perform her therapy.

Star had lower extremity pain (concentrated in the knee region) and underwent the Calmare 10-treatment series in 2015.

She came in for one (1) booster treatment in the fall of 2016 when she experienced an increase in her pain level.

Star gave us permission to share her recent Facebook post about how she feels today (4/15/17):

“Beautifully Blessed Day!!!
God is so good and I am feeling so much better!!
After 7 years of pain, God’s healing hands and direction leading us to Calmare NJ has changed my life🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻.
I am still off all my previous meds for CRPS and feel pain ever-so-often but briefly and greatly reduced.
So blessed!!!😄
Here what I accomplished just today–
 
Cleaned up on House✔️
Walked Boston✔️
Watch Nephew Luke play baseball✔️
Late lunch with Tim/Michael Buffalo Wild Wings
About to watch movie at home and then out for another walk”👍
Does Your Calmare Provider Offer This Level of Advanced Expertise?

Choosing your Calmare provider is pivotal to your treatment outcome since this therapy is “provider dependent.”

The patient is reliant upon the expertise of the scrambler therapy provider for proper placement of the leads in partnership with the use of the MC-5A scrambler therapy device.

Calmare Therapy NJ USA Clinical Director, Dr. Michael Cooney, is one of the premier Certified Calmare providers in the world.

He has successfully treated hundreds of patients battling neuropathy since 2011 due to RSD, fibromyalgia, PHN from shingles, pain after chemotherapy (CIPN), diabetic nerve pain and unexplained pain after surgery or injury.

Talk About Your Treatment-Resistant Pain with Dr. Michael Cooney

Unlike other healthcare practices, people interested in Calmare Therapy can speak directly with our clinical director about their specific case. You are welcome to submit measurable test results (MRI, Cat Scan, etc.) in advance for his review as well.

Laura Checks in Six Years After Calmare for RSD & Fibromyalgia

April 7, 2017

Laura is shown walking on grass without excruciating pain for the first time in years after Calmare Therapy (NYC 2011)

We jokingly call Laura from Indiana one of our Calmare Pioneers.

When Dr. Cooney began offering Calmare scrambler therapy in 2011, he intended to use it to help his existing medication and treatment-resistant patients.

But quickly, patients and their families battling neuropathy discovered his success using the MC-5A device to lessen or alleviate several types of treatment-resistant chronic nerve pain.

Laura, a newlywed and special needs school teacher, was severely debilitated by both fibromyalgia and RSD pain and related physical symptoms.

While she was undergoing RSD treatment at the Cleveland Clinic, she saw a post on Facebook by another RSD sufferer which changed her life.

Amanda and Dr. Cooney

Amanda posted that Calmare had given her life back,” Laura recalls. “She wanted to shout to the rooftops to anyone living with chronic pain that there is something out there that truly works.”

Laura and her husband talked and agreed to halt the current treatment regimen and drove to New Jersey to meet with Dr. Michael J. Cooney.

Laura shares a message six years since her scrambler therapy

Today, Dr. Cooney was delighted to see this message on his Facebook timeline from Laura. (Don’t think Dr. Cooney will forget about you after your treatments are complete. He stays in touch with everyone in the ‘Calmare Family.’).

“Dr. Cooney, I saw an old post from 2011 on my ‘Memories for Today’ and of course I thought of you! The Cleveland Clinic ended up telling me that I was, “In denial about my condition. That I would never improve because RSD has no cure.” My prayers for remission were answered when I found you just a few months later! I’m forever grateful.

You have given me the gift of life without pain and it’s been full of joy again!

Laura is one of those young women you wish you could clone, because she’s just a lovely person inside and out.

Thank you for taking a chance on Calmare, Laura, and we appreciate your unrelenting support since your treatment with us in 2011.

Wishing you every happiness, today and always.

Emily is Pain-Free from CRPS for the First Time in Six Years

April 4, 2017

We have great admiration for patients and their families who take their chronic pain stories to the media.

Their efforts provide a personal view about the stress and frustration of dealing with chronic nerve pain while highlighting the fact that opioids and implanted devices often don’t alleviate or even lessen the pain.

You may recall, we recently shared an article about a young woman from Indiana who battled CRPS for six long years, without finding a pain solution.

Her family finally decided to seek out alternative pain treatment solutions and discovered Dr. Cooney’s success using Calmare scrambler therapy.

Emily is pain-free from CRPS for the first since she was 10-years-old

Emily just completed 10 daily scrambler therapy treatments last Friday.

We are elated to report that she left us pain-free for the first time in six long years!

Her mother shared this message on Facebook:

“I just wanted to give everyone an update on Emily and her treatment.

Emily finished 10 Calmare treatments yesterday and she is pain-free!
It is the first time in 6 years that we can say this!!

God is Good!!

For those of you wondering if she is permanently out of pain, the answer is we don’t know. Everyone with CRPS responds differently to treatment. Some people have gone into remission and others have the pain come back. For those who have the pain come back, they usually go back for booster treatment.

Here is the information for those who are interested in Calmare Scrambler Therapy.

I recommend going to see Dr. Cooney as he has a high success rate treating CRPS.

Michael J. Cooney, D.C.

Rutherford, NJ

Based upon the posts and messages we see from Emi, she continues to do well and has resumed the normal activities of any young woman.

Get to Know Calmare NJ – Connect on Social

March 17, 2017

Calmare scrambler therapy is a newer alternative treatment to reduce or lessen several types of neuropathy.

Since we introduced this drug-free pain solution at our healthcare clinic in 2011, we chose not to launch a flashy advertising campaign touting the merits of this pain drug-free chronic pain treatment.

We took a decidedly different approach

We invited patients from around the world to describe their firsthand accounts about what the Calmare Therapy experience was like for them, before, during and after the treatments.

Besides sharing these testimonials here on our website, we found the best way to reach other chronic pain sufferers was through social media.

Laurie’s Calmare Booster Treatments Bring CRPS Pain Back to 0/1

March 13, 2017

Laurie Mounts was injured in 2008 and later diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). When she presented at Calmare Therapy NJ in July 2014, her pain level was a 9/10 on her entire left side from her feet up to the shoulder.

Laurie battled CRPS pain on her entire left side and physical symptoms associated with the condition.

Laurie’s symptoms includes discoloration (see image at left), allodynia, numbness, tingling, sweats, swelling, burning and brittle hair.

Trying Other Pain Management Treatments Without Success

Before discovering scrambler therapy, Laurie tried pain relief treatments including physical therapy and prescription medications. Ultimately she had a spinal cord stimulator ( SCS ) implanted but did not achieve sustained pain relief.

After traveling 3,000 to us for treatment, Laurie and her mother shared her outcome here:

Time for Calmare booster treatments

Depending on the severity of the original neuropathic condition, and length of time the patient has been experiencing chronic pain, periodic booster treatments  can be extremely useful against any eventual elevation in pain.

March 2017 – Laurie receives a Calmare booster treatment on ler left leg. Due to CRPS, she was experiencing pain on her entire left side.

Just shy of three years since her original 10 daily scrambler therapy treatments, Laurie’s CRPS pain was steadily increasing. But this time, she knew what to do. She scheduled booster appointment treatments. (Laurie had 10 treatments, but some patients require as few as a single treatment).

When we opened our pain management clinic this morning and checked our Facebook page, we were delighted to be greeted by an image of her smiling and this message:

Feeling ABSOLUTELY amazing right now!! Best I’ve felt yet!! Thanks Dr Cooney!! You’re my hero!! 😘

Have Traditional Pain Management Solutions Failed?

Teen from Indiana Interviewed About Upcoming CRPS Treatment at Calmare NJ USA

February 19, 2017

pediatric-chronic-painPediatric pain specialist Dr. James Tolley at the Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis recommended Emily Blake and her family contact Calmare NJ USA clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney to consider scrambler therapy as a pediatric pain management treatment for her spreading CRPS pain.

The media heard about the teenager’s challenging chronic pain condition (CRPS) and healthcare journalist Jennifer Boen wrote a heartfelt account of the family’s struggle to find a treatment to lessen or end their daughter’s debilitating pain.

Fort Wayne News-Sentinel Excerpt:

“I’m never not in pain,” Blake said, giving a vivid description of sensation: “I feel like I’m wrapped in barbed wire.” Once a champion swimmer and diver who placed first in the city and 11th in the state in butterfly, Blake can no longer tolerate the feel of the pool water. She’s undergone six nerve blocks, seen seven specialists, had many weeks of physical therapy and been prescribed an increasing number of medications.

Read the full story in the News-Sentinel here

We look forward to welcoming the Blake family next month and will do everything within our power to help her. Stay tuned!

Pain News Network Features Dr. Michael Cooney and Calmare Therapy

February 16, 2017

pain-news-network

Calmare Therapy NJ USA clinical director Dr. Michael Cooney contributed The 411 on Calmare Scrambler Therapy” to Pain News Network. The bylined article describes his clinical experience administering this newer therapy to help patients lessen or eliminate several types of diagnosed neuropathy, particularly CRPS / RSD, PHN, diabetic nerve pain, post-surgical pain and chemo-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN).

Dr. Cooney also discusses the merits of alternative medicine as a solution for treatment-resistant patients battling severe chronic pain.

Pain News Networkreaching more than 100,000 unique readers each month, is a non-profit, independent news source for information and commentary about chronic pain and pain management. The publication’s mission is to raise awareness about chronic pain and connect and educate pain sufferers, caregivers, healthcare providers and the public about the pain experience.

“I’ve followed this publication for some time and believed their readers would be open to learning more about Calmare Therapy, particularly the fact that it is drug-free, painless and has no side effects,” says Dr. Cooney.

Article Introduction:

“Personally and professionally, my biggest frustration is when our therapies do not achieve a Calmare leads on back 2_2014successful patient outcome.

Often, “treatment-resistant” patients are forced to seek out more invasive procedures – surgeries, spinal cord stimulators, or powerful narcotics such as ketamine − where success has been uneven, but side effects can be significant.

I wasn’t comfortable recommending these “next level” neuropathic pain treatments for my patients. So my partner Dr. Robert Kelly and I spent two years looking for a non-invasive therapy that didn’t cause pain or come with added side effects.”

#1 Top Trend for Pain Management in 2017: Alternative Therapies

February 15, 2017

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

yahoo-news-logoThere has not been a lot of good news about pain management in the medical arena lately.

(If you are reading this message, you or a loved one may be battling chronic pain, so I don’t need to rehash what you already know.)

Clearly, opioids and peripheral drugs that fall into that category, are often not the solution to many types of pain.

I was delighted to read Yahoo’s predictions that put “Growth in Alternative Therapies” at the top of their list for pain management solutions that would garner the most attention this year.

We launched Calmare at our New Jersey pain management clinic in 2011 as an alternative emi-hewatt-having-calmare-treatment-_10-16neuropathic pain solution for people who have already endured invasive (painful) treatments, inpatient procedures, surgery and baskets full of prescription painkillers that didn’t work.

Not only can opioids fail to provide lasting pain relief, their side effects can be worse than the pain.

Alternative therapies, like scrambler therapy, take a less invasive approach and many have achieved outstanding clinically-proven outcomes for people battling a plethora of chronic pain conditions.

Tools for Choosing Your Alternative Medicine Provider

If you are seeking alternative treatment, perform due diligence beforehand–

  • Find out what clinical trials have been conducted on patients by medical research professionals and read the reports/findings.calmare-patient2patient
  • Ask the provider to put you in touch with other patients who have the same condition so you can gauge their feedback and outcome in making your decision to proceed.
  • Speak with your medical insurer to determine how you can submit for coverage, either in advance or by post-treatment reimbursement.
  • Call the clinic and speak with the doctor who would be treating you. Is he/she performing a sales pitch or asking about your medical history, previous treatment efforts, medication usage and ultimate goal for pain therapy?

Finally, don’t assume the physician currently treating your neuropathy is familiar with the alternative treatment you are considering. Even today, many doctors are often most comfortable with ‘traditional’ medical treatments.

While I certainly respect that position, what is the treatment plan for the patient who has undergone all the traditional medical therapies–without success?
