December 17, 2019

After seven unsuccessful surgeries trying to lessen his post-surgical CRPS, pain management doctors eventually recommended Rob undergo Ketamine infusions or have a spinal cord stimulator implanted in his spine.

I’m honored to say this electrician said ‘no thanks’ to both options and chose Calmare Therapy.

He shares his experience below:

Ten Tips to Prepare for Your Calmare Therapy

October 10, 2018

Our tools to get ready for your Calmare treatments will lessen stress and prepare you for success.

Before the end of the year,  we will be welcoming many new patients to Calmare Therapy here in New Jersey who are traveling here from nearby New Jersey to as far away as South America, Sweden, South Africa and Australia.

I thought it would be a good time to recap how patients and families can optimally prepare for their upcoming scrambler therapy sessions.

Patients generally treat for a minimum of 10 sessions, one per business day, lasting about 35 minutes, on average.

How to Prepare for Your Calmare Therapy:
  1. Fill out your New Patient Forms in advance. Forward them to us by fax (201-933-8159) or scan and email to calmarenj@gmail.com .
  2. Send or bring along any objective tests ( X-rays, EEG, MRI, EMG or cat scans) for our pre-treatment study).
  3. Wean off as many medications (i.e. anticonvulsants and antidepressants) as possible, working in partnership with your prescribing doctor/s. (Note: Each patient case is different. Well in advance, we’ll talk specifically about your specific medication protocol and how to safely and effectively prepare).
  4. Refrain from using skin lotions or oils 24-hours before each treatment.
  5. Dress in loose, comfortable clothing and bring some entertainment to occupy you during each treatment.
  6. Consider keeping a journal about your experience and discuss how you feel each day during therapy.
  7. Make hotel reservations well in advance. We provide a list of lodging options which have received high marks from patients. (We don’t recommend using Airbnb or other sub-rental accommodations due to quality unreliability).
  8. Focus on nutrition and hydration. We understand your high level of pain may stymie appetite and water intake. But by building up your metabolism and fueling your body with hydration, you are setting a course for an optimal treatment outcome.
  9. Find ways to help relax your mind and body. Traveling is challenging even when you feel great–it can be exhausting and painful when you are battling pain. Gather items of comfort–slippers, pillows, scented items and keep them in a handy bag on the plane or in the car with you.
  10. Don’t be nervous!  The treatments are non-invasive and have no side effects.

CalmareWe are a positive and spirited team who will make you feel as comfortable as possible from your first visit to your last.

Our collective goal is to lessen your chronic nerve pain and eliminate a need for pharmaceuticals painkillers or invasive pain management treatments.

Every patient’s case is unique. If you have questions or concerns, reach out to us anytime and we’ll reply within 24-48 hours of your contact.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

It’s time to focus on alternatives to opioid use for chronic pain

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney
Clinical Director
Calmare Therapy NJ

no-pain imageThere was an interesting article about chronic pain in the Chicago Sun Times last week (thank you for sharing it Deena Lotridge) about professional football players dealing with medication-resistant neuropathy.

Essentially, they face the same frustrating scenario that any patient with injury or disease–related chronic pain faces ─ often, the prescribed opiates and strong painkillers just don’t work. And their negative side effects, such as blurred thinking, low energy, depression, social isolation and the expense, far outweighs any short-term benefits.

The most poignant statement in the article states, “To be sure, we cannot continue to rely on opiates over the long-term and must replace them as a treatment method.”

While we appreciate these articles focusing on the healthcare crisis of pain and narcotic use, they always seem to fall short when it comes to specifically outlining the newer and proven alternative solutions to treat pain.

Meanwhile, right here in New Jersey, we are  successfully using Calmare scrambler therapy to treat a myriad of severe neuropathic conditions for patients who were close to giving up ever finding pain relief.

Without media attention on drug-free, alternative treatments for severe neuropathic pain, patients and families have no idea we can help them regain their lives and get back to enjoying life again.

Kenley’s RSD story and Calmare treatment

February 8, 2013

I mentioned a few weeks ago about Kenley arriving here in New Jersey from her home in West Virginia wheelchair-bound as a result of her lower extremity RSD. She was also living with severe pain hovering in the 8 -10 pain scale range.

While she was with us for 11 treatments, she charmed us all and brought tears to our eyes when she pushed her own wheelchair out of the office after treatment number 7.

Kenley will require occasional booster treatments due to the severity of her condition.  Our goal is for her to be able to extend the length of time between treatments longer and longer.

This brave and inspiring young woman has generously shared her emotional story with us by video and we are most appreciative to her for telling her personal story. She left a big impression on all of us.
