Two Calmare Booster Treatments Eliminate Teen’s CRPS Pain Recurrence

June 10, 2019

Calmare reduces chronic pain

Seventeen-year-old Gizzelle arrived at our New Jersey clinic in September 2018 unable to walk due to severe pain caused by CRPS in her left leg.

After she underwent 10 Calmare scrambler therapy treatments over the course of two weeks, we were elated to watch her walk out of our clinic, unassisted.

In June, to offset a recent increase in pain, she returned over the weekend to undergo two booster treatments, one Saturday and one Sunday, leaving us pain-free once again.

She and her parent headed back to Virginia immediately so she could return to school on Monday morning to complete her final exams.

Ronald McDonald HouseGizzelle’s family was able to lodge at the Ronald McDonald House for children and young adults under the age of 21 at a very affordable rate.

What are Calmare Booster Treatments?

Depending on the severity of the original chronic nerve pain condition–and the length of time the patient has been experiencing neuropathy–periodic booster treatments may be required to combat any return of pain after the initial protocol of 10 treatments.

The length of time between the first course of treatment and any potential need for follow-up boosters can be months or several years.

In more advanced stages of prolonged or severe neuropathy, a single or series of boosters can be extremely useful against an elevation in pain.

Booster treatments can be as few as a single session to as many as 10, which will be mutually determined after a physical examination by our clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney, in cooperation with the patient/family if the patient is under age 18.

Lauren Writes Letter of Thanks for Her Husband’s Calmare Therapy

May 29, 2018

Robert Vaughn adds his pin to the Calmare NJ USA patient map. May 2018

We were honored to receive this email message from Lauren Vaughn at the conclusion of her husband’s two-week Calmare protocol for CRPS (diagnosed in 2013). The couple generously permitted us to share it below.

“As we approach our last day with you, I wanted to send my sincere thank you!

It has been such a positive experience for my husband and myself! We have seen so much progress!

To see Robert live with 8 or 9 out of a scale of 10 pain level for the past 5+ years has been difficult, to say the least!

You have given us hope for the future!

Within the past two weeks we have observed his pain level decrease to a 3 out of 10! Unbelievable!

Not only is the treatment amazing, but Dr. Cooney and the staff have been such a joy to work with!

From the bottom of our hearts we will be forever grateful!

Thank you for giving our family hope again! Thank you again for your amazing partnership in Robert’s treatment and recovery.”

Quality of life is a gift that few can give and you have certainly given us that back!

Soldier Who Battled RSD for 10 Years Ends Chronic Pain with Calmare Therapy

 

July 1, 2016

In 2003, while serving in the Israel Defense Forces, Ari Katz injured his ankle which was diagnosed as nerve entrapment.  His subsequent surgery to correct the issue resulted in an eventual RSD diagnosis.

When Ari arrived at Calmare Therapy NJ from his home in New York City, his chronic pain level was an 8 /10.

One of his many interesting statements about Calmare Therapy is that “the scrambler” will not jeopardize his organs in the way that some opioids or other medications for pain might after extended use.

He also brings up a great point that if the RSD pain should return, he can return for a booster treatment, as needed, to lessen or eliminate the pain.

More patients rejecting doctor-recommended spinal cord implants and painkillers to combat chronic pain

ksl tvOn Friday, June 7, there was a great TV news story from Utah about several  Utah men with chronic neuropathy, foot pain, and RSD who took a chance on Calmare Therapy and finally found substantial relief from severe pain. We’re not sure why there weren’t any women profiled in the piece, but we’ll take any news we can get…) http://www.ksl.com/?sid=25506361&nid=148&fm=most_popular&s_cid=popular-5

News reports, blog articles, research news and patient stories–we will get the word out.  Painkillers? Painful and invasive pain treatments? Your days are numbered.

Chronic pain sufferers find valuable support from online chat groups

March 20, 2013

chat roomBy Dr. Michael J. Cooney

A colleague shared this article supporting online chat rooms for people living with chronic pain.  For those of us at Calmare Therapy NJ, this is not news. Many of our patients are enthusiastic users of Facebook groups, Twitter and other sites where people living with neuropathy or specific medical conditions can interact and share support. We often join in relevant discussions as well from a healthcare provider perspective.

The caveat, of course, is when non-medical professionals share healthcare information that is one-side on simply incorrect. We have had more than a few patients contact us with mis-information about Calmare Therapy, in fact.

Nonetheless,  my team and I actively join in on some of these online discussion groups because we can often offer clinical information on scrambler therapy and answer simple questions to help patients determine if this therapy (or another) might help minimize the cause of their pain.

My suggestion? Search for some online support groups and read the posts for a while to see if the tone and quality of information suits your needs. If you choose to jump in and ask a question or share your experience, you can maintain your privacy by posting under a username that protects you.

Nearly all the chronic pain support groups have chat rooms. Here are a few groups that we participate in below. If any of our readers would like to share additional recommendations, please do so!
