Abraham Travels from Israel for Post-Surgical Neuropathy Relief

March 7, 2019

By Dr. Michael Cooney, Clinical Director

This week we welcomed 54-year-old Abraham back from Kiryat Ye’arim, Israel who first treated with us in 2015 and again 2017 for booster treatments to reduce his post-surgical neuropathy.

He returned this week for four booster treatments and added his pin to Israel on our Calmare patient map.

We are always amazed to discover how people with chronic pain discover us from around the world.

Abraham, first heard about Calmare scrambler therapy in 2015 after watching a promising story about scrambler therapy featured on the Charles Osgood File Report.

Abe, a rabbi who works in publishing, makes the long trip from Israel to our clinic in New Jersey to reduce or eliminate his chronic nerve pain, when the pain returns and begins to increase.

Some of our patients never require further treatment (Calmare booster therapy) while others with more severe conditions, or who suffered with treatment-resistant neuropathy for a year or more, may need occasional treatments, if the pain returns.

As I’ve said before, in many cases, the need for boosters is generally less frequent as time goes on and fewer sessions are required.

Speak with Dr. Cooney about Your Chronic Pain Condition

If you have been unsuccessful lessening or eliminating post-surgical neuropathy or other types of chronic nerve pain, I would be happy to discuss your case during a no-fee phone or video consultation.

Note that you should be in a position to travel to New Jersey, USA and lodge in the New York City/New Jersey area for a period of two weeks, should we mutually agree you are a viable candidate for this FDA-cleared pain management therapy.

To confirm a phone consultation, we invite you to email us at info@calmaretherapynj.com, call the clinic at 201.933.4440 or complete the card below and we’ll reach out to you within 72 hours.

Calmare Therapy NJ USA Expands Again

September 10, 2018

Calmare Certified Provider

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

I’ve been in the pain management field since Gerald Ford was president. Over the course of my career, I’ve seen countless pain management therapies and pain medications come and go.

During all of those years, I’ve never seen patient outcomes come anywhere close to what we have achieved with Calmare scrambler therapy.

Calmare NJ USA Patient Testimonials on YouTube

Since we introduced “the scrambler” in 2011, we have watched children, teens, adults and seniors’ lives transformed by its uncanny ability to reduce or eliminate chronic pain (neuropathy).

We have been able to help people who had already tried all the drugs, the invasive therapies, the painful procedures and the failed surgeries, without success.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think people in pain would travel to us for treatment from Australia, South Africa, South America, Europe and Canada.

Over 25% of Americans with Chronic Pain Affected by High Impact Chronic Pain (MD Magazine)

After careful thought and consideration, I have decided to close our physical therapy and chiropractic practice to free up my time to help more people fighting chronic pain as a result of:

* Surgery
* Cancer treatment (CIPN)
* Shingles (PHN)
* CRPS
* Fibromyalgia
* Diabetic neuropathy
* Other nerve pain conditions

Don’t get me wrong–scrambler therapy doesn’t work wonders for everyone, unfortunately. It is not a miracle treatment and you’ll never hear me say that it is.

But in the majority of people I have treated,
the pain reduction results have been life-changing.

So starting today, we will be able to help more people, provide quicker service and offer a broader range of appointments.

If you’re ready to try a newer way to fight pain, you’ve come to the right place.

Here’s to winning the war on pain, one patient at a time.

Call our clinic at (201) 933-4440 or leave your information below, and we’ll reach out to you:

Your Calmare Post-Treatment Protocol

February 2, 2018

By Dr. Michael Cooney, Clinical Director

Congratulations!  You have completed your Calmare Therapy treatment protocol.

Now that you have less pain, or are pain-free, your quality of life is about to improve dramatically.

Due to you improved mobility and decrease in pain level, many Calmare patients feel like they are ready to climb Mount Everest.

But doing too much too soon can actually hamper and potentially jeopardize your positive outcome.

Therefore, I’ve outlined some instructions for patients (healthcare providers can contact directly for more detailed clinical guidelines) to ensure you recover optimally, and enjoy the benefits of Calmare Therapy for as long as possible.

Every patient’s medical history is unique and we welcome your individual questions about any of the recommendations cited below:

No Vigorous Exercise or Clinical Physical Therapy for Two Weeks after Treatment

Your body is in the midst of recalibrating itself since your Calmare treatments.

When you begin to exercise, be prepared for soreness associated with new this activity (a positive sign you have awakened muscles which had not been used before!)

During recovery, if an injury occurs, use ice to reduce swelling and inflammation.

To treat muscle soreness, use heat. In both cold and hot treatment, administer 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off for a period of one hour.

Don’t Overdo

While it is thrilling to feel less pain and be more mobile, muscles need time to adjust to renewed use. Be careful and cautious and don’t do too much too soon. If you feel tired or any pain, stop what you are doing and rest.

Additional Sleep

Your body needs to re-adjust to several physiological changes after treatment. More than likely, it has also been a long time since you have slept well.

You may need to sleep several more hours than usual for the next several weeks. This is normal.

Welcoming a Good Night’s Sleep After Calmare Therapy

Make an Appointment with Your Pain Management, Specialist or Family Physician

It’s important to discuss your successful treatment outcome with your doctor. It is likely that your medications, particularly for pain, may be lessened or eliminated completely.

Discuss how your lessened or eliminated pain will affect your holistic health and ask for guidelines going forward.

Improve Your Nutrition

Now that you are feeling better and moving more, you should see an improvement in your appetite. Take advantage of feeling better and fuel your recovering body with high-quality foods– fresh fruits and vegetables, grains, nuts and protein (white before red).

Hydrate with at least 6 – 8 tall glasses of water daily.

Finally, for patients who treated beginning in 2018, your BrainSpan™ report will arrive soon after you have returned home. Based upon your blood work, the report will detail any diagnosed vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Speak with your primary care doctor about ways to increase your consumption, either through pills or the foods you eat regularly.

Journal How You Feel

We hope you will chronicle how you feel after Calmare Therapy. Keep a record of the new activities you are able to engage in and record how you feel during and after the activity.

We hope this treatment is life-altering for you. Therefore, chart your progress and celebrate your success!

If You Feel Pain

Depending on your medical condition and the length of time you have experienced it, pain may return (to a lesser degree).

Pay careful attention to any physical or emotional issues that may have contributed to this.

If pain continues for five continuous days, Calmare booster treatments (generally 1 – 3 treatments) may be necessary. Please call the office for further instructions.

Virginia Woman’s CRPS Causes 10/10 Pain and Feet Lesions

May 26, 2017

Debbie Meade’s son begged for her feet to be amputated so she would no longer suffer with excruciating CRPS pain.

Her debilitating chronic pain had spread and was causing severe swelling in her feet, which eventually caused the skin to tear. The resulting lesions did not heal naturally, leaving her open to the danger of infection.

In addition, her pain level was regularly 10/10 on the McGill Pain Scale.

Arriving here in New Jersey using two canes for mobility, her life was about to change dramatically.

Debbie describes her Calmare Therapy experience (May 2017)
Calmare Scrambler Therapy History and Clinical Trial Outcomes

Calmare Therapy is a drug-free, FDA-cleared treatment that safely scrambles the pain message from the brain. It is painless and has no side effects.

The first study on scrambler therapy was published in 2003 by a team of researchers led by Giuseppe Marineo, professor in Delta Research and Development at the University of Rome Tor Vergata in Italy.

His team found that scrambler therapy was effective in reducing pain symptoms in patients with severe, drug-resistant pain from terminal cancer.

Mayo Clinic physician and scrambler therapy researcher Charles L. Loprinzi, MD, reports on his team’s clinical findings with Healio (2016).

Scrambler Therapy Lessens Chronic Nerve Pain

Calmare (the brand name for the MC-5A scrambler therapy device) was later found to also aid in the lessening or alleviation of chronic nerve pain as a result of:

  • chemotherapy (CIPN)
  • diabetes (diabetic nerve pain)
  • fibromyalgia
  • back and neck pain
  • shingles (PHN)
  • failed back surgery syndrome
  • phantom limb pain
  • other neuropathic nerve pain conditions
Using Calmare to Reduce CRPS / RSD Neuropathy and Physical Symptoms

Clinical Director Dr. Michael Cooney at Calmare Therapy NJ USA has also successfully treated hundreds of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and RSD patients from around the world

Mayo Clinic Doctors Tout Calmare Scrambler Therapy’s Chronic Pain Treatment Benefits

November 14, 2016

mayo clinicAs we’ve reported before, the Mayo Clinic, one of the world’s most respected medical research institutions,  has performed a number of clinical trials using scrambler therapy for chronic pain reduction.

In the 11.11.16  issue of their patient-targeted newsletter published last Friday, Mayo Clinic Health Newsletter, the institution published a lengthy overview about scrambler therapy and its significant pain reduction merits for people with a range of medication and treatment-resistant neuropathies.

Results from Dr. Charles Loprinzi’s scrambler therapy trial (2015)

Key Excerpt:

“Mayo Clinic doctors are optimistic about the pain scrambler. Based on research, and their own experience treating people, it appears the device can have good to dramatic results…”

We are (again) encouraged by the Mayo Clinic’s confidence to highlight scrambler therapy in their publications, which reach thousands of reader subscribers around the world.

Chloe Finds CRPS Pain Resolution with Calmare Therapy

January 29, 2016

Nineteen-year-old Chloe valiantly underwent treatment after treatment –and more drugs than she can name–trying to defeat the pain from CRPS in her feet.

When she arrived here in New Jersey after flying 24-hours from Australia, her left foot was swollen to the size of a football and her right foot was in severe continual pain.

Here’s what she has to say about her Calmare Therapy which was personally administered by Dr. Michael Cooney:

Calmare NJ’s Patient-to-Patient Program in Action

CALMARE P2P WEB BANNERSince so many people with neuropathy /chronic pain have attempted several different treatments and therapies to minimize their discomfort (often without success), we launched our exclusive Patient-to-Patient Program which puts potential Calmare Therapy patients in touch with another patient with the same disease / medical condition who has already undergone scrambler therapy with us.

We thought it was a great way to help future patients feel less anxiety about moving forward and it offered the freedom to share experiences and concerns with someone who could relate to their battle.

We have more than 50 previous Calmare patients who are part of this program and volunteer their time to talk with new patients by email, phone or Skype.
Diana Slade,
a South African with CRPS who traveled more than 7,000 miles to New Jersey for treatment last year, chatted via email a few months ago with a new patient from Missouri, also with CRPS, prior to her coming here for treatment.

Here’s an excerpt of an email Di sent to the woman in Missouri:

Di’s CRPS Diagnosis and Treatment History:

“I developed CRPS in my foot 6 long years ago after back surgery. I had joint degeneration in my lower spine, chips off L5 and L4, and overall wear and tear (too many horses and motorbikes!).

In all, I had 8 back operations.

I went through every painkiller you can imagine, courses of epileptic drugs, Ketamine creme, and two rhizotomies (an invasive surgical procedure which severs nerve roots in the spinal cord through the insertion of an electrified hot probe to the sensory nerve just outside the joint).  After these efforts were unsuccessful, I went through a long, painful and ultimately failed spinal cord stimulator implant.

My husband discovered Calmare on an Internet search and we soon realized Dr. Cooney in the U.S. specialized in CRPS cases. While going for treatment in Italy would have been closer, we decided to fly 15 hours to Newark, New Jersey, USA, for Dr. Cooney’s treatment in late 2014.

When I arrived in the States at Dr. Cooney’s clinic, my pain level was a 10/10.

There was no improvement after 3 daily treatments. But on day 4, everything started to change quickly. (I recall Dr. Cooney smiling wryly at my expression of utter shock).

My pain began to steadily diminish every day after that. After 11 treatments,  I left the U.S. PAIN FREE for the first time I can remember.  Even sitting on the loooonnng flight back to South Africa–no pain!! w my life has changed since Calmare

  • I am no longer living a ‘blurry life’. ( I do not take any pain medications)
  • I can take a shower
  • I can easily put-on and take-off a pair of socks
  • I sleep for 6 hours straight
  • I can finally put my foot in a stirrup again and ride (my business and my passion)
  • My family has their Mom back!

As Dr. Cooney tells everyone, this is not a “miracle cure” but it is a treatment that works for many people — and I was fortunate to have been one of them.

I certainly wouldn’t recommend a spinal implant or pump of any sort. In my experience, there are too many that fail.  And then what??

Doc and his staff, especially Cathy, are amazing. Having read your email, what have you to lose?  You have a life to regain.

Please shout if I can help you with anything else and good luck!

San Franciscan Daniel Newman discovers Calmare from another CRPS sufferer

Daniel NewmanDaniel Newman was not winning his long battle with CRPS in his lower leg.

But a fortuitous conversation with Amy Ratner, also a CRPS sufferer who achieved remission after Dr. Michael Cooney’s Calmare scrambler therapy, proved to be a very valuable conversation.

Daniel arrived here in NJ as one of our more skeptical patients (rightfully so after enduring a long list of previous treatments and medications).

Before his flight back to California, he took a few moments to discuss his treatment experience and outcome:

Calmare Therapy bringing together the global pain community

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney

world-mapLast night, (with the chair next to my air conditioning vent and two fans blowing on me due to the incredible heat wave we’re experiencing…) I was thinking about a patient I am treating this week from Louisiana.

Louisiana?

A few years ago, my patients were locals from the Bergen County, New Jersey area.  My sole purpose for introducing Calmare was to offer a drug-free, pain-free alternative treatment just for my own patients who did not respond to PT or chiropractic therapy. (I have been in pain management for a long time and still don’t believe drugs are the solution for acute or chronic neuropathy).

Little did I know that my certification as a Calmare provider would open the door to patients from around the U.S. and even the world. Today, our staff spends a good portion of each day helping out-of-town patients secure travel and local accommodations near our office.  From California to Mississippi, Maryland and Indiana, we have met wonderful people from just about every state.

Then, just this morning, we confirmed our first patient coming next month from Australia.

Australia?

The MC-5A machine has the capacity to help so many people living in pain every minute of every day. Can it help everyone? Unfortunately, no.  But I am consistently seeing significant decreases in pain levels (as well as pain levels reduced to 0) in 80 percent of the patients I am treating.

Way back when, after I introduced Calmare for my own patients here in my little corner of New Jersey, I had no idea the geographic doors it would open. I am honored.  More importantly, we are more determined (than ever) to get the word out and help people from anywhere and everywhere. Welcome all. Let’s get to work.
