Cleveland Clinic Continues Calmare Therapy Pediatric Clinical Trials

cleveland-clinicWhen you are providing an “alternative therapy,” there are always additional challenges in trying to successfully relay the merits of the treatment.

Calmare Therapy is no different. While it has been cleared by the FDA, there are still naysayers.

One of the things we do is to promote the ongoing clinical trials by our country’s most esteemed research hospitals, such as the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins and Massey Cancer Institute.

A new Calmare patient, treating with us for CRPS pain and symptom relief, shared this article from the Cleveland Clinic, which highlights a variety of alternative treatments they recommend to help people battling RSD  / CRPS.

He explained that he first heard about Calmare from this article, published in 2014, which eventually led him to Calmare Therapy NJ USA.

The article noted:

Calmare® Pain Therapy and Experimental Therapies

Michael_Stanton-Hicks, MD:

Calmare® Pain Therapy could be effective in reducing your symptoms.  At the present time, Cleveland Clinic Department of Pediatric Rehabilitation is trialing Calmare® under experimental review. The FDA is overseeing these investigations.

As you know from many of our patient testimonials from parents and their children, we have been able to lessen the pain from CRPS for many pediatric and adult patients using Calmare Therapy.

The MC-5A Calmare device is FDA-cleared and earned a U.S. Patent as a unique device in 2013.

Depending on:

1) the severity of the RSD / CRPS condition;

2) length of time the patient has been diagnosed with reflex sympathetic dystrophy or complex regional pain syndrome;

subsequent Calmare booster treatments (as few as one treatment) may be necessary, if the pain level begins to rise.

From our clinical experience, over time, the frequency and number of booster treatments necessary should decrease over time for most patients.

Mayo Clinic shares another CRPS patient positive outcome after Calmare Therapy

October 23, 2015

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

Slowly but surely, the major research institutions are beginning to recognize what we’ve been doing here in New Jersey for the past four years is truly worth studying and testing–

mayo clinicYesterday, the Mayo Clinic reported on another clinical trial patient battling complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and the remarkable outcome she achieved after undergoing Calmare’s MC-5A scrambler therapy treatments.

Patient Quotation (excerpt):

“I had accepted the fact that I’d probably live my entire life in pain,” she says. “Now, the scrambler is working wonders for me. For the first time in five years, I feel like I’ve finally found a treatment that can permanently change my future.”1

How does Calmare’s scrambler device work?

The Mayo Clinic explains (excerpt):

“Scrambler therapy works by using a nerve stimulation device to mix another signal into the transmission from the damaged nerves to the brain. Basically, it replaces the information that signals pain with information that does not signal pain. The therapy involves placing electrodes connected to the scrambler device on the skin near damaged nerves. The scrambler sends painless electrical signals to those nerves that they relay to the brain. The new signals break the pain cycle and retrain the brain to understand that it is not really experiencing pain.”1

Ensure your Calmare provider has extensive expertise treating CRPS and RSD successfully

I’ve stated this before but it bears repeating:

Calmare is a “provider dependent” therapy:

camare foot image with leadsYour Calmare doctor determines the exact placement of your leads (key to transmitting the pain signal messaging) in accordance with the original injury site.

Depending on the patient’s response, these leads may need to be moved at some point during the 10-treatment series.

The doctor must understand the anatomy of the body and the manner in which the pain message is being transmitted to and from the brain in order for Calmare to optimally do its job.

If the doctor does not accomplish this task, the patient’s pain  and symptom relief can be significantly diminished–or not successful at all.

  1. Are you Calmare Certified?
  2. How many patients have you successfully treated with (your specific medical condition): CRPS, RSD, PHN, CIPN, diabetic neuropathy, post-surgical pain…

Scrambler Therapy can relieve debilitating pain and symptoms from several neuropathic conditions

Here in New Jersey, we specialize in treating CRPS and RSD. But we have also achieved outstanding patient outcomes treating many other conditions as well:
