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.
We would be happy to listen, and together, determine if Calmare scrambler therapy might be right for you. Reach out to us privately at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the card below and we’ll get in touch with you to talk about your chronic pain.
Earlier this summer, 13-year-old Abby and her mother were here to treat her severe CRPS. She arrived in a wheelchair with pain on her whole left side. The family was worried Abby would soon have full-body RSD.
Before her treatment began, her mother Danielle asked what she dreamed of doing if Calmare scrambler therapy was successful.
Abby responded she’s like to run and jump on the beach in Maine.
Well this week, that dream became a reality and her mother shared it on our Facebook timeline this morning.
For parents or teens battling CRPS / RSD, you may wish to read Abby’s chronicle of her journey before, during and after therapy with our clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney, here in New Jersey.
RSD is a heartless disease. For many patients, it begins near an area of the body which has sustained an injury or surgery and, over time, can spread to other parts of the body. Kim Williamson from upstate New York can certainly relate:
Kim sustained a right wrist injury that required two surgeries on the top and bottom of her wrist. Her RSD began in her right shoulder but by the time she arrived here in New Jersey for Calmare scrambler therapy treatment, she was in a wheelchair. The RSD spread down the right side of her body into her leg. The pain from walking was so debilitating, she could no longer walk at all. If she was forced to use her leg, she would drag it behind her to avoid putting any pressure on it at all.
In addition to the chronic neuropathy, Kim has skin discoloration, allodynia, open sores on the upper right arm and difficulty sleeping.
“I couldn’t believe this was happening to me. I felt like I had lost my life and nothing was normal anymore,” Kim recalls. She was no longer able to work and relied on the standard protocol of RSD painkillers to get through the day.
Kim watched the June 2014 episode of the nationally syndicated television show, “The Doctors” which featured Calmare Therapy. “I liked that it wasn’t a painful treatment and didn’t have any side effects,” Kim explains. “I was determined to see if this could help me get even a little of my old life back.”
Kim said, in a best case scenario, she hoped that Calmare chronic pain treatment might help her to walk again and ideally lessen her pain by 80 percent.
“You never get used to seeing a Calmare patient arrive for treatment in a wheelchair,” Dr. Cooney says. “It lights a fire in me to help that patient defeat the RSD, CRPS or whatever disease has caused this person to become immobile.” Dr. Cooney, one of 10 Certified providers of Calmare Therapy in the U.S., will generally recommend a treatment protocol of 10 daily therapy treatments, lasting 30 to 60 minutes each.
“Although Kim’s case was severe, she responded very successfully to treatment. After three treatments, she was walking again,” Dr. Cooney recalls with a smile. After treatment number eight, Kim was pain-free and her physical symptoms were diminishing just as quickly. Dr. Cooney says he didn’t feel any further treatments were needed at that time because she was without pain and for a sustained period of time.
The whole office was elated to see Kim walk out the door and head back home very differently than when she arrived. She was kind enough to make a video testimonial for Calmare NJ which we’ll share with you soon.
“Thanks for all you do Dr. Cooney, not just for me, but for all of us. My RSD pain is still at 0, hands and feet still improving from CIPN. Did I mention I planted a garden and mowed the lawn today?”
“If you, or someone you know is experiencing pain from cancer, seriously, look into Calmare. I wouldn’t steer you the wrong way. Dr. Cooney knows what’s up! Dr Michael Cooney, you’re the main man in my book when it comes to Calmare Therapy.”
“A little over a year ago and still pain free! I ran for the first time last week! Thank you Dr. Cooney and Calmare NJ, you gave me my life back!”
“My doctor recommended a spinal cord stimulator as a last resort to help with my CRPS pain. But I researched Calmare and decided to go to Dr. Cooney in NJ for treatment. I had nothing to lose. Ten treatments later, I am going home at a 0 on the pain scale. I am overjoyed.”

“Thanks to you guys, my own Christmas will be filled with joy and celebration as I embark on a new pain-free journey in 2015! Your admirable dedication to healing will always be an inspiration for me.”
“I 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!”
“Someone I knew who had the same condition recommended I go to NJ for scrambler treatment with Dr. Cooney for my CRPS. Arrived a skeptic..left in so much less pain.”
Mark Stomp (parent of patient)
“We chose Dr. Cooney because he has successfully treated so many people with CRPS. Also, his staff was very nice and inviting and his patients I spoke to had tremendous results. It has been 5 months since my daughter’s treatment and she is still pain free, symptom free, and taking no meds.”
“You just need to try this treatment because it may just give you back the life you enjoyed before CRPS stole it away.”
RSD / RND
“We will always remember and cherish your help in getting our daughter to where we can hug her again!! You are such a special man and healer. God Bless you and may He continue to use you to bring healing and compassion to others!”
