Abby Uses Calmare Therapy to Prepare for Her Prom

March 29, 2019

Abby from Vermont was here this week for three booster treatments.

The teenager and her family first came to us in 2015 when Abby’s CRPS was uncontrolled and spreading.

Now age 17 and getting ready for her first prom (gasp), she arrived at a 4/5 pain level in her leg.

Her motivation?

“Abby didn’t want to attend her prom with any chronic pain.”

Three sessions later, she left pain-free again.

Why Calmare Scrambler Therapy Can be Ideal for Treating Pediatric Neuropathy

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!

Pets are Welcome at Calmare Therapy NJ USA

February 10, 2019

pet therapy for chronic pain

By Dr. Michael Cooney, Clinical Director

Gina, who has been treating with us for post-surgical neuropathy, swears her little dog helps lessen stress and lower her pain level.

And I agree 100%.

If bringing your pet to your Calmare treatments makes you feel better, bring him or her along!

READ: “How Pets Can Help Lessen Chronic Pain” (Everyday Health)

We don’t operate like other pain management clinics,

never have, never will.

Bring your pet.

If you are living with treatment-resistant chronic pain, consider an alternative medicine therapy, such as Calmare scrambler therapy.

For more than a decade, Calmare has been FDA-cleared, has no side effects and is painless to undergo.

Best of all, there are no opioids, prescription drugs or any medications at all connected with undergoing Calmare.

READ: How Does Scrambler Therapy Work?

This can be particularly helpful to people who have been reliant upon prescription medication for a prolonged period of time and who may benefit from a drug-free pain therapy alternative.

Chronic pain puts too many good people–from children to seniors–on the sidelines of living.

I believe so strongly in the healing power of scrambler therapy, I use this technology exclusively to treat various types of neuropathy, in varying degrees of severity.

We invite you to reach out and let’s discuss if Calmare can help you or a loved one finally defeat the monster we call pain.

Call (201) 933-4440 or email us privately about your case at info@calmaretherapynj.com.

I’ll talk to you soon.

Meet 30 Calmare Therapy NJ Patients on YouTube

October 23, 2018

By Dr. Michael Cooney, Clinical Director, Calmare Therapy NJ USA

Most people who visit our website are already frustrated with the medical community.

They or a loved one are in pain.

Pain medication is not pain management, they have learned firsthand.

But a myriad of painful procedures, surgery and implanted devices have also failed to do their jobs.

Then what?

From unexplained neuropathy after surgery to diabetic neuropathy or pain after chemotherapy , too many people are left with unresolved neuropathy.

And they continue to lead debilitated lives, so unfairly.

I came to this conclusion years ago, which is what compelled me to launch Calmare scrambler, an FDA-cleared alternative therapy here in New Jersey in 2011.

Mayo Clinic Researchers Test Scrambler Therapy for Pain

It has no side effects, is painless to undergo. It’s drug-free. The worst case scenario is that the treatment does not work, which happens.

But in more than 75% of the patients we treat, their pain is significantly reduced–or eliminated.

Watch and listen to the patients for whom we have relieved severe chronic pain over the years–

From 10-year-old children to seniors who had battled neuropathy for decades, you will discover someone who has fought the same battle with pain that you do.

Then, we hope you’ll reach out via the contact form below, by emailing us at calmarenj@gmail.com or calling our clinic at (201) 933-4440.

Calmare Keeps Tonya’s CRPS from Spreading

March 23, 2018

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.”

“Beyond Opiates, The Future of Pain Management” (WebMD)

Tonya says she sent off an email to him (calmarenj@gmail.com) and he called her the next day.

Watch the video above to learn what happened next.

Scientists ID Brain Mechanism and Possible Fix for Chronic Pain

July 11, 2017

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

I read an exciting article in ARS Technica, Scientists come up with neural mechanism—and possible fix—for chronic pain which certainly spoke to me and our Calmare team since researchers at the New York University School of Medicine determined that chronic pain may, in fact, be all in your head.

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.

Emi Checks in from Australia After Calmare Treatment for CRPS

December 8, 2016

Emi Hewatt

We were delighted to 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.

Emi’s Update

“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!

Images from Emi’s everyday life Down Under

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.

Why Calmare Can Be Ideal for Children and Teens Battling Chronic Pain

November 30, 2016

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 neuropathyGabriel_6.2015

  • FDA-cleared 510(k)-cleared and European CE mark-certified
  • Pain-free treatment
  • 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.

Abby Bluteau getting treatment_2015We 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.

Kelly Toler Visits for a Calmare Booster Treatment

October 12, 2016

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 kelly-tolar_10-16_boosterthis).  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:

Sixteen-year-old Battling RSD Achieves 0 Pain Level After Three Years

Danielle and her best friend.
Danielle and her best friend.

August 1, 2016

“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:

  • Physical therapy
  • Epidurals
  • Surgery
  • 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

Marlo Payne with Cathy_7.16

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

Danielle Payne and friends_7.16Now 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?”
