New Sciatica and Chronic Back Pain Treatment: Calmare Therapy

Calmare therapy treats chronic back pain and sciatica
Too many people suffer from medication and treatment-resistant chronic back pain and sciatica.

November 6, 2019

We all know of friends, family members and work colleagues who suffer from chronic back or sciatica pain.

They’ve tried all the drugs and therapies and still have pain.

In our pain management clinic, back pain is the number one affliction our patients face.

For those patients whose pain is nerve-focused, we are increasingly recommending Calmare Therapy, particularly for people battling chronic back pain for six months or longer.

Calmare uses biophysical “scrambler” technology, a treatment for nerve pain that uses electrodes placed on the skin through which low amounts of electricity scrambles the pain message from the brain so that it stops sending the pain signal.

Yes, in fact, it’s as simple as it sounds.

Most importantly, 75 percent of the chronic nerve pain patients we have treated here in New Jersey, have “significantly reduced–or even eliminated their neuropathic pain.”

How the Calmare MC-5A technology can significantly lessen treatment-resistant lumbar and sciatic neuropathy

Our device reduces sciatic and spinal neuropathy by creating an artificial neuron that retrains the brain by sending a ‘no-pain’ signal along the sciatic root to the brain.

It’s key to understand the distinction between

a sciatic/lumber neuritis and a sciatic/lumbar neuropathy.

The neuropathy (chronic pain) is constant; the pain may vary from low to high, but the discomfort never goes away completely.

This chronic, never-ending nerve pain is the root cause that scrambler therapy can relieve.

Conversely, a sciatic/lumbar neuritis is usually a structural or biomechanical problem, such as a pinched nerve or ligament damage.

These types of conditions should be treated by chiropractors or physical therapists who specialize in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.

Calmare Therapy can significantly reduce or even eliminate chronic back pain as a result of nerve damage.Via small electrodes strategically positioned by a specially-trained doctor, a ‘no-pain’ message is transmitted directly to the nerve for a period of approximately 35 minutes per session.

Regardless of severity, pain and physical symptoms caused by the neuropathic condition can be significantly reduced-or even alleviated-by the conclusion of the 10-treatment series.

The cause of chronic sciatica or back pain may be a result of injury, failed back surgery or generalized aging of bones and joints.

Double-Blind Clinical Study Finds Decreased Low Back Pain Following Calmare Therapy

For severe cases of neuropathic pain, subsequent Calmare booster treatments are sometimes, but not always, necessary for patients who have lived with the chronic pain condition for an extended period of time before undergoing Calmare Therapy treatment.

Calmare scrambler therapy benefits
  • Proven successful in the treatment of neuropathic pain by leading oncologic studies 
  • FDA-cleared 510(k)-cleared and European CE mark-certified
  • Pain-free
  • Non-invasive
  • Drug-free
  • No side effects

People with treatment and medication-resistant neuropathy describe their outcomes after Calmare Therapy

Will Calmare work for my back pain?

Calmare can lessen chronic pain in the back and sciatica

First, let us be perfectly clear—while this non-invasive therapy has been successful for more than 75 percent of our patients with chronic nerve pain, it does not significantly reduce or eliminate pain or everyone, unfortunately.

We have seen marked success (pain reduction or remission) for children, teens, adults and seniors battling these neuropathic pain conditions:

  • Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Neck Pain
  • Foot Pain
  • Failed Back Surgery Syndrome
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Chemotherapy associated Cancer Pain – CIPN
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome – CRPS
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Neuropathic Pain/Neuropathy – General
  • Phantom Limb Syndrome
  • Post Shingles Pain – PHN
  • Pudendal (Gynecologic) Pain

Calmare is a ‘provider dependent therapy. Is your doctor Calmare Certified?

When will my pain level start to decrease?

In most cases, we see by treatment 3-4 if a patient’s neuropathy will be significantly minimized or a pain-free state can be achieved. Many patients experience pain relief as early as 10 minutes into their first treatment session. As the number of treatment sessions increases, the duration of pain relief is prolonged.

What if my pain comes back?

Depending on the severity of the original condition and the length of time the patient has been experiencing chronic pain, periodic booster treatments may be required to combat any return of pain.

Is Calmare technology comparable to a TENS unit?

No. The Calmare® MC-5A device creates a low energy electrical impulse which travels through the patient’s nerves delivering a “no-pain” signal to the brain.

This scrambles (disrupts) the brain’s misfiring pain signal that the area of pain is normal and eventually results in prolonged pain relief.

TENS units are self-use devices that can temporarily lessen pain but when discontinued provide no lasting pain resolution.

5-Star Review from a Calmare Patient’s Mother

July 23, 2019

new treatment for crps

We’re in the midst of a very busy week, but we always start our day by checking email and social media profiles to see how our patients are doing post-treatment.

This morning, we were delighted to receive a 5-star Facebook review from the mother of a patient from Canada who just completed her Calmare treatments with us to combat a 4-year battle against CRPS.

Dr. Cooney loves this image with Megan and we are proud to share her mother’s review:

“Dr. Cooney just gave our daughter her life back after four years of intense suffering in her right foot with CRPS.

She started her treatment with a pain level of 9/10 and seven treatments later she was at a zero!!

We cannot thank this amazing, kind wonderful man enough!!!

Dr. Cooney will forever hold a huge part of our hearts.”

Dr. Michael Cooney obtained specialized training to use the Calmare MC-5A scrambler therapy device in 2010 and began treating his medication and therapy-resistant patients with chronic nerve pain in 2011.

Today, he has helped relieve advanced neuropathy in more than 1,000 patients who travel to Rutherford, New Jersey for his personalized treatment.

We invite to you read our Patient Case Studies page to review patient experiences.

Should you wish to speak via phone or video chat directly with Dr. Cooney about your chronic pain condition, call our clinic at 201.933.4440, email us privately at info@calmaretherapynj.com or complete the card below and Dr. Cooney will reach out to you directly.

Wishing you a low pain day.
