We get by with a little help from our Calmare patients

September 20, 2012

When we made the committment to offering our patients a non-invasive, drug-free option for chronic pain, Calmare Therapy, we knew we would undoubtably face the scrutiny of representing a “new” therapy that was virtually unknown in most pain treatment circles. So far, I’m pleased to say, the road has been mostly free of controversy and push-back. And when we arrive at the office to see a message from one of our patients shown below, the journey is absolutely worth it.

Gina is shown here with her beautiful family. She has suffered from severe, debilitating RSD pain for some time. She’s undergoing a round of Calmare booster treatments now, and sent us this message after her first booster yesterday:

“I know we have said it before but thank you!!! That’s not enough to say those words……you change lives!!!!!
Dr. Cooney, Dr. Michael, Cathy & Barbara are the MOST AMAZING PEOPLE we have been Blessed to meet!! Ok enough of my babbling…lol. Monday over 10 pain by the time we left I was 7. Went yesterday and left 5. Ok today I left and I was 1.5/2!!! Can’t wait to get there tomorrow!!!
I met a young lady after I came out and I have been praying that she had some success with calmare!! Off to rest because I don’t want to over due it!!! Have a great night everyone. xoxoxo.”

Calmare Therapy producing strong outcomes for children and adolescent patients

Youth is a powerful advantage when it comes to healing. Physiological processes and repair just work quicker and more efficiently in a young body, thus accelerating the healing process. An example of this can be found with our young RSD/RND patients with multi-extremity and spine pain who achieve rapid, whole-body relief by only treating their original injury site. We have treated patients as young as 12-years-old with successful outcomes. Click on Jamie’s image below to hear his mother, Joan, share her story:

 Children Living with Chronic Pain are Warriors

Mentally and emotionally, kids are fearless when it comes to facing pain head on and are often particularly well-versed about their specific medical condition. We have seen several teen patients who have been fighting the ravages of chronic pain for years, and yet, they don’t give up search for a solution. Amanda Davidson experienced severe RSD after lower extremity surgery. Prior to discovering Calmare Therapy, her pain was so debilitating that she was wheelchair-bound, at one point. Prior to coming to New Jersey, she and her mother, Jennifer, had traveled to the country’s top medical facilities seeking a solution, without success. Watch Amanda tell her experience here. 

 Parenting Children in Pain 

Finally, some parents can have a tendency to “over parent” a child suffering from chronic pain. They are frightened and desperate to help their children. As a result, this can often add additional stress for the patient. Parents should aggressively seek out the least invasive, most prudent solutions to help their child’s medical crisis. At the same time, it’s important to remember how desperately these special children just want to be treated like any other kid.

Calmare can help treat Fibromyalgia

Sandy M. responded to one of our blog posts asking if Calmare might help relieve her fibromyalgia. We wanted to share our response to her–

Hi Sandy,
Thank you for your excellent question.
Yes, Calmare is definitely a viable option for your fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia can be classified under a broader heading, specifically, Chronic Pain Syndrome of unknown etiology (cause is not well understood). The basic premise behind Calmare therapy is to treat and ameliorate chronic pain, helping sufferer’s lower their dependence on pain meds, improve their mental outlook, and help regain varying degrees of activities of daily living.
If we can offer more information, please feel free to contact us directly in NJ at (201) 933-4440.
Wishing you good health,
Dr. Floyd Michel
