The Calmare Connection Joins Two Women from Texas and Australia with RSD

November 13, 2015

BlackburnDianne came to us from Texas suffering from full-body RSD.

She was initially injured as a child and has been suffering with chronic pain for decades.

Despite her serious healthcare challenges, Dianne was able to earn her Registered Nurse (RN) degree while she experienced some remission.

But following back surgery in 2000, the RSD flared its ugly head yet again.

Over the years, Dianne underwent several different therapies and tried various prescribed medications to help lessen the pain.

A long history of unsuccessful neuropathic pain treatments

As most RSD patients can confirm, these efforts were unfortunately unsuccessful. Dianne had repeated nerve blocks, Ketamine, not-one-but-two spinal stimulators impanted, an implanted drug pump and used several powerful medications, to no avail.

Equally frustrating, the side effects from all the prescribed drugs opened the door to listlessness, weight gain, depression, too much sleep and/or insomnia.

But even while ensuring all these obstacles, with the support of her family, she didn’t give up looking for pain and symptom relief.

Using her own health and medical education expertise, she never stopped searching for new RSD treatments to help overcome her increasingly severe symptoms.

Two women worlds apart find common ground with chronic pain

From Texas, she connected online with our patient Michelle, who had a similar medical history, who had traveled from Australia to New Jersey for Calmare scrambler therapy RSD treatments and sustained an outstanding patient outcome.


Michelle shares her Calmare Therapy NJ story here:


Calmare Technology 2012After many texts and emails back and forth, Dianne and her husband decided to make the long 3,000 mile trip to New Jersey where she underwent ten 30-minute scrambler therapy treatments each day.

Steadily, her pain began to decrease and each day, the pain relief lasted for longer periods of time.

She told Dr. Cooney she really couldn’t describe what she felt as her pain began to diminish because it had been so long since she had experienced any relief.

An ‘astonished’ Texan finally achieves RSD pain relief

Earlier this week, Dianne completed her treatments and reported an “astonished” 0 pain level upon her departure. She also significantly reduced her medication needs.

Because of the long-term severity of her condition, Dianne may need to return periodically for booster treatments. We’ve advised her to take it easy, sleep at least 8-hours a night, do not  “do too much” each day, and slowly get back to enjoying her life again, which she so richly deserves.

How to Prepare for Your Calmare Scrambler Therapy Treatments

October 8, 2015

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director, Calmare Therapy New Jersey 

ID-10053921It’s a good thing when I can’t recall how many patients we have treated using Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment since we began offering this revolutionary device in 2011.

Suffice it to say, we have welcomed many people with several different neuropathic conditions–pain after chemotherapy, post-surgical pain, diseases including Shingles, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Myofacial pain–from around the corner here in Bergen County, NJ to as far away as South Africa and Australia.

Once we mutually determine that Calmare may be a viable treatment option for pain and symptom reduction, it’s time to prepare to begin the 10-series treatment protocol.

Patients and families always ask us how to optimally prepare for the upcoming treatments–a very good question.

I thought this would be useful information to share with our blog readers as well.

Dr. Cooney’s Tips and Tools to Prepare for Your Calmare Therapy:
  1. Send us or bring any objective tests ( X-rays, EEG, MRI, EMG or cat scans) for our pre-treatment study).
  2. Wean off as many medications as possible–in partnership with your prescribing doctor/s. (Note: Each patient case is different. We’ll talk with you about your specific medication protocol and how best to address this issue.)
  3. Do not use any skin lotions 24-hours before each treatment.
  4. Wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring some hand-held entertainment to occupy you during each treatment, which lasts about 35 minutes.
  5. Fill out the Calmare NJ New Patient Forms in advance to save time once you arrive.
  6. Don’t be nervous!  The treatments are painless.

We are a positive and spirited team (as we hope you have heard!) and will be 100% sure to make you feel as comfortable as possible from your first visit to your last.

What’s happening at Calmare Therapy NJ this week

Update from Dr. Michael Cooney:

It’s been an informative week. As you know, it’s a challenge for us to “get the word out” about the remarkable outcomes we are seeing in long-suffering patients who are living with several types of advanced chronic pain.

We don’t begin to have the big advertising budgets that the pharmaceutical companies have to market to patients and doctors every day.

How people with chronic pain are discovering Calmare scrambler therapy

So we invite our patients to help us spread the word by sharing their own personal battles against chronic pain.  As you can see from the link above, they tell their stories with genuine heart, soul and inspiration.

(Looking for stories of courage and overcoming adversity?  Watch a few of these videos .  I do — every single day).

With this patient support and sharing, more people debilitated by severe chronic pain as a result of chemotherapy treatment, autoimmune diseases, fibromyalgia and RSD and CRPS are hearing about this new treatment for pain.

Patient Poll

This week, we took a patient poll and 75%  reported they heard about us from other people, usually suffering with the same neuropathic condition, who (finally) achieved significantly less pain — or went home pain-free. Keep in mind these people  had previously undergone a plethora of invasive and unsuccessful pain therapies — Ketamine, spinal cord stimulators, nerve blocks, opioids, etc.

Treatment Updates 

Here’s a quick update on some of our patients here for treatment within the past few days:

  • Katie  returned for 2 booster treatments. She left with 0 pain.
  • Kara came for 3 booster treatments but achieved a 0 pain level after 2 treatments and headed back to school.
  • We welcomed a new male patient from California with  CRPS of one lower leg.  After the first 2 treatments, he is experiencing marked pain reduction.
  • Amanda (RSD) came in for 5 booster treatments and left at 0 pain.
  • A female from Virginia with CRPS  had 5 boosters and returned to 0 pain level.

The good news is, the week isn’t over yet. Chronic pain, bring it on. We’re ready.
