Depending on the severity of the original condition, and the length of time the patient has been experiencing chronic pain, periodic booster treatments may be required to combat any return of pain.
While many patients never need further scrambler therapy, more advanced stages or prolonged or severe neuropathy, one or more boosters can be extremely useful against an elevation in pain.
What to Do if Your Neuropathic Pain Level Returns or Increases
Calmare patients who experience a recurrence of pain should document when the pain returns, subsides and what environmental issues were involved (stress, weather conditions, excessive use of the affected area) or if there was no specific cause for the elevation of pain.
We hope the lucky fellow who has the honor of taking this young lady to the dance appreciates how special she truly is!

Tonya Schuler, a full-of-life fitness trainer from West Virginia, was diagnosed with CRPS after carpal tunnel surgery. The chronic pain started in one hand and soon spread to the other.
From there, the neuropathy affected her neck, back and stomach.
After trying a myriad of prescription pain drugs, injections and invasive procedures, her pain management doctor eventually recommended she have a spinal cord stimulator (SCS) surgically implanted into her back.
“When I realized an SCS was the final treatment option, I knew I had to take matters into my own (painful) hands and reach out to the CRPS community,” explains.
“A Facebook group that included thousands of other sufferers consistently mentioned Dr. Cooney and Calmare for helping reduce their pain, even for full-body sufferers.”
Their study confirmed and explained why the Calmare device is able to produce very significant chronic pain relief even to patients who have previously undergone medication and other therapeutic efforts.
Nerve damage can confuse the brain’s pain signals
Scientists identified and confirmed that a circuit in the central pain-processing region of the brain causes hyperactive pain signals. It seems the nerve damage deactivates the somatostatin (SOM) interneurons whose responsibility is to diminish pain-firing signals.
By alternating the SOM, we can reduce or eliminate the pain messaging.
We believe this study is a breakthrough and explains why Calmare scrambler therapy is successful, when medications and other more invasive treatments fail.
The application of the 16 distinct algorithms from the Calmare MC-5A device in activating sequences stimulates the brain by sending a “no-pain here” signal and thereby “calming” (Calmare means ‘calming’ in Italian) the interneurons which are hyperactive.
Calmare convinces the brain to stop sending pain signals
Calmare has been effective treating several types of neuropathic (chronic) pain; this type of comprehensive study may be the long-awaited first step in explaining the reason for it.
Could Calmare Be the Solution to Your Treatment-Resistant Neuropathy?
I am proud to be one of only six Calmare-Certified providers in the U.S. I have successfully treated (you will never undergo a treatment performed by any other staff member) hundreds of patients since we introduced this revolutionary, FDA-cleared pain relief device in 2011.
If you have undergone medication and other neuropathic pain therapies, but are still in significant pain, we would be happy to speak with you about your chronic nerve pain.

We were delightedto receive this post on our Facebook timeline this morning from Emi Hewatt, who came to us from Down Under for scrambler therapy a few months ago. If you recall, she and her family gained media attention during their fundraising effort to come to us for Calmare Therapy.
Emi had a severe CRPS condition, which required her to use a wheelchair and greatly restricted her daily quality of life. She is a warn, funny and loving person–someone who should not be living on the sidelines of her young life.
“It’s now nearly 8 weeks since we returned home from America where I received the life changing Calmare Therapy treatment. And WOW, has my life changed. I apologise for it being so long since my last update but I have been flat out enjoying life!
We’ve been busy putting in Vege gardens, spending time with family and friends, celebrating 80th Birthdays, feeding calves, carting hay (and getting the truck bogged), bush walking with the Kangaroos, spending time with my horse, visiting my 90 yr old Nan in hospital, getting out and spending time in our beautiful part of the world, volunteering for community groups and organisations, talking to other suffers, lobbying medical professionals to take on Calmare, visiting local people and business to say thank you for all their support and speaking at local community group get togethers, all the while ensuring I get enough rest and learning to re-manage my life post Calmare.
Enjoying all the things that only a couple of months ago I couldn’t do.
We’ve also been holding and organising fundraising events to give back to the Lions Club of Corryong Community Account. We’ve had a trail ride and bush run from Geehi to Tom Groggin and sausages sizzles, with more to come, starting with another sausage sizzle at the Corryong Farmers Market this Saturday.
We just had CRPS awareness month in November and we’re still on board with The Purple Bucket Foundation raising awareness and getting Calmare here, with it now being approved for use within Australia!!!!
Again, we truly can’t thank you enough for all the support we have received and it definitely wouldn’t have been possible with out my amazing mum and Dr.Cooney Calmare NJ. Thank you all so much. I am loving life. xx”

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director, Calmare Therapy NJ USA
The last thing any parent or caregiver wants to do is subject their child to pain or watch them battle pain day after day.
Additionally, no parent I’ve ever met wants to give their child narcotics to combat pain, even for the short-term.
But, if your child is suffering, you’ll do just about anything to help them feel better.
I realized that during the month of June at our New Jersey Calmare clinic, about 70 percent of the patients we treated for neuropathy using scrambler therapy were under 25 years old.
And about 50 percent of those patients were under age 18.
Why Calmare scrambler therapy is an ideal treatment for pediatric neuropathy
FDA-cleared 510(k)-cleared and European CE mark-certified
Non-invasive (no injections, IV’s, outpatient procedures)
Drug-free (no narcotics or even over-the-counter medications required).
No side effects (except for a possible light humming sensation which we can adapt if your skin is unable to sustain any kind of touch)
How does scrambler therapy work?
Children or teenagers are comfortably connected to the Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment® device via small electrodes (similar to those used in EKG and other medical procedures) placed on the patient’s skin at the pain site/s.
The device then sends a very low current of electrical stimulation through the skin and nerve fibers, which carries a “no pain” signal to the brain, essentially overriding the previous pain signal.
We recommend the child have books, magazines or handheld entertainment to help pass the time during the 35-minute daily treatments (see Abby at left).
In some cases, pain relief has been reported after the first treatment, but each child’s case is unique.
Scrambler therapy treatments are performed over a two-week period, with the goal of the patient’s pain steadily decreasing, eliminating the need for wheelchairs, canes or any mobility support devices.
Once the child is back home, after ample rest and care is taken not to “do too much too soon,” many pediatric patients return to school and normal daily activities.
You may recall Kelly came to us from Texas a year ago after hearing about Dr. Cooney’s success using Calmare to treat CRPS. At that time, she had been debilitated by severe pain for nearly seven long years. As a busy wife and mother with young children, she refused to give up finding a solution to make her pain manageable.
Just shy of a year since her successful treatment series, Kelly is back with us this week for booster treatments, to reduce her pain level.
She shared this post on our timeline just before arriving here in New Jersey:
“CRPS has the nicknamed the ‘suicide disease’ and I know exactly why (and it sucks that I know this). I have been through many of the treatments they discuss in the CRPS documentary, “Trial By Fire,” including a 4-day ketamine infusion treatment, which was a very, very hard treatment to go through…
If you, or anyone you know, if suffering from this disease, please reach out and contact Calmare NJ and see if Calmare therapy is right for you!
It has done amazing things to change my live and the chronic pain path I have been on for over 8 years now.
I will never be 💯 percent pain-free, but to be able to be even close to that is all I could ask for!! Looking forward to seeing you Dr. Cooney on Wednesday!!”
Calmare Booster Treatments
Depending on the severity of the original condition, and the length of time the patient has been experiencing chronic pain, periodic booster treatments may be needed to combat any return of pain. Many Calmare patients never need further therapy, but in RSD cases and other conditions resulting in prolonged chronic pain, boosters can be extremely useful.
Some patients only require one booster treatment, others require up to three, on average.
Dr. Cooney explains:

“My daughter missed about 75 percent of the last two school years,” says Marlo Payne, a registered nurse from update New York. “Her full body RSD had just taken over her life.” Danielle was diagnosed with reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) after a bunionectomy performed in 2013. The burning pain started in her toes and eventually spread to the top of her head.
Danielle said the burning pain was so severe she eventually felt ‘her brain sizzling.’ The Payne family mobilized and aggressively sought out a range of RSD treatment efforts:
Prescribed painkillers and opioids
With no significant success, and Danielle’s pain actively spreading, the family eventually traveled to the Cleveland Clinic so that Danielle could receive inpatient care in their widely regarded pain management physical therapy program.
Where do you turn after many chronic pain treatment efforts fail?
“We were all terribly disappointed when Danielle didn’t respond to this intensive treatment. I
thought—what else can we do?” Her father Dan took matters into his own hands and began researching new RSD treatments online. He discovered Dr. Michael Cooney who uses Calmare Therapy (scrambler therapy) to lessen or even alleviate several kinds of neuropathic pain, particularly RSD / CRPS.
Best of all, this FDA-cleared treatment is painless, completely drug-free and has no side effects.
“By this time, Danielle was experiencing skin discoloration, unbearable pain and often relied on crutches or a wheelchair to get around. It was that bad,” Marlo recalls. Much to her surprise, when she initially called Calmare Therapy NJ, Barbara and Cathy immediately put her through to speak with Dr. Cooney.
“We talked about Danielle’s case, her previous treatment efforts and the severity of her condition. I wanted him to be fully aware of how bad her situation was,” Marlo explains. After talking with the doctor, she told her daughter’s best friend to pack up for a two-week stay in New Jersey to keep Danielle company during Calmare scrambler therapy treatment.
Danielle Arrives in New Jersey to Try Calmare Therapy
When she arrived, Danielle’s pain was a constant 10/10 on the Pain Scale. After her first treatment, however, Danielle felt some relief, estimating her pain was reduced to about an 8. With each daily treatment session, lasting about 35 minutes, her pain continued to decrease.
By treatment #7, the teen’s pain was down to a 2/10. By treatment #10, Danielle was pain-free for the first time in nearly three years.
Life after Calmare Therapy
Now back home and resuming a normal life for the first time in three years, Marlo says the whole family is still in a state of shock. “We’ve been consumed with this monster for so many years and to have it suddenly wiped away, well, we still can’t quite believe it,” Marlo says with a smile.
This relieved mother says that Danielle won’t go back to playing all the sports she loves, for now, but that full-time high school is definitely on the agenda. “Danielle was understandably depressed, being removed from a normal teenager’s social life due to the pain, but that’s no longer the case. She really has a second chance at life now.”
A few words about Dr. Michael Cooney
The Payne family also has kind words for Dr. Cooney and his team’s care: He’s humble about his skill and he’s a straight-shooter, which I appreciate. He doesn’t sugar-coat and tells it like it is.”
Marlo says that families struggling with chronic pain should ‘make the phone call’ to Dr. Cooney.
“Study the information on their website and then speak to him about your situation. Dr. Cooney will be truthful, informative and candid with you. This machine may very well change your life. What are you waiting for?”

“Thanks for all you do Dr. Cooney, not just for me, but for all of us. My RSD pain is still at 0, hands and feet still improving from CIPN. Did I mention I planted a garden and mowed the lawn today?”
“If you, or someone you know is experiencing pain from cancer, seriously, look into Calmare. I wouldn’t steer you the wrong way. Dr. Cooney knows what’s up! Dr Michael Cooney, you’re the main man in my book when it comes to Calmare Therapy.”
“A little over a year ago and still pain free! I ran for the first time last week! Thank you Dr. Cooney and Calmare NJ, you gave me my life back!”
“My doctor recommended a spinal cord stimulator as a last resort to help with my CRPS pain. But I researched Calmare and decided to go to Dr. Cooney in NJ for treatment. I had nothing to lose. Ten treatments later, I am going home at a 0 on the pain scale. I am overjoyed.”
Kansas City, MO
“Thanks to you guys, my own Christmas will be filled with joy and celebration as I embark on a new pain-free journey in 2015! Your admirable dedication to healing will always be an inspiration for me.”
“I am really feeling like I have a new lease on life. As strange as it may seem, it took some time to get used to having no pain!”
“Someone I knew who had the same condition recommended I go to NJ for scrambler treatment with Dr. Cooney for my CRPS. Arrived a skeptic..left in so much less pain.”
Mark Stomp (parent of patient)
“We chose Dr. Cooney because he has successfully treated so many people with CRPS. Also, his staff was very nice and inviting and his patients I spoke to had tremendous results. It has been 5 months since my daughter’s treatment and she is still pain free, symptom free, and taking no meds.”
“You just need to try this treatment because it may just give you back the life you enjoyed before CRPS stole it away.”
RSD / RND
“We will always remember and cherish your help in getting our daughter to where we can hug her again!! You are such a special man and healer. God Bless you and may He continue to use you to bring healing and compassion to others!”
