Dr. Michael Cooney Discusses Calmare in NJ Monthly Magazine

November 2, 2017

Dr. Cooney and his success treating several types of chronic nerve pain (chronic pain) is included in a lengthy article in NJ Monthly magazine, “As Addiction Rises, Doctors Seek Pain-Relieving Alternatives to Opioids”.

“We think there’s a hypersensitivity that develops within the pain center of the brain in some people,” says Dr. Michael Cooney, one of fewer than 10 Certified providers of Calmare Therapy nationwide. “Scrambler therapy uses painless electrodes to move “a no-pain signal” out of the area of pain in order to “reboot” the brain, so that it’s no longer sending any pain signal.”

Marilyn Green, a patient who underwent the therapy after refusing to fill opioid prescriptions offered by her pain management physician, was interviewed for the article. She experienced debilitating post-surgical foot pain that eventually left her wheelchair-bound.

““When I went to see Dr. Cooney, my pain level was at nine and I could not walk,” she says. “On day five of the 10 Calmare treatments, it was already down to zero.”

#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?
