New Sciatica and Chronic Back Pain Treatment: Calmare Therapy

Calmare therapy treats chronic back pain and sciatica
Too many people suffer from medication and treatment-resistant chronic back pain and sciatica.

November 6, 2019

We all know of friends, family members and work colleagues who suffer from chronic back or sciatica pain.

They’ve tried all the drugs and therapies and still have pain.

In our pain management clinic, back pain is the number one affliction our patients face.

For those patients whose pain is nerve-focused, we are increasingly recommending Calmare Therapy, particularly for people battling chronic back pain for six months or longer.

Calmare uses biophysical “scrambler” technology, a treatment for nerve pain that uses electrodes placed on the skin through which low amounts of electricity scrambles the pain message from the brain so that it stops sending the pain signal.

Yes, in fact, it’s as simple as it sounds.

Most importantly, 75 percent of the chronic nerve pain patients we have treated here in New Jersey, have “significantly reduced–or even eliminated their neuropathic pain.”

How the Calmare MC-5A technology can significantly lessen treatment-resistant lumbar and sciatic neuropathy

Our device reduces sciatic and spinal neuropathy by creating an artificial neuron that retrains the brain by sending a ‘no-pain’ signal along the sciatic root to the brain.

It’s key to understand the distinction between

a sciatic/lumber neuritis and a sciatic/lumbar neuropathy.

The neuropathy (chronic pain) is constant; the pain may vary from low to high, but the discomfort never goes away completely.

This chronic, never-ending nerve pain is the root cause that scrambler therapy can relieve.

Conversely, a sciatic/lumbar neuritis is usually a structural or biomechanical problem, such as a pinched nerve or ligament damage.

These types of conditions should be treated by chiropractors or physical therapists who specialize in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.

Calmare Therapy can significantly reduce or even eliminate chronic back pain as a result of nerve damage.Via small electrodes strategically positioned by a specially-trained doctor, a ‘no-pain’ message is transmitted directly to the nerve for a period of approximately 35 minutes per session.

Regardless of severity, pain and physical symptoms caused by the neuropathic condition can be significantly reduced-or even alleviated-by the conclusion of the 10-treatment series.

The cause of chronic sciatica or back pain may be a result of injury, failed back surgery or generalized aging of bones and joints.

Double-Blind Clinical Study Finds Decreased Low Back Pain Following Calmare Therapy

For severe cases of neuropathic pain, subsequent Calmare booster treatments are sometimes, but not always, necessary for patients who have lived with the chronic pain condition for an extended period of time before undergoing Calmare Therapy treatment.

Calmare scrambler therapy benefits
  • Proven successful in the treatment of neuropathic pain by leading oncologic studies 
  • FDA-cleared 510(k)-cleared and European CE mark-certified
  • Pain-free
  • Non-invasive
  • Drug-free
  • No side effects

People with treatment and medication-resistant neuropathy describe their outcomes after Calmare Therapy

Will Calmare work for my back pain?

Calmare can lessen chronic pain in the back and sciatica

First, let us be perfectly clear—while this non-invasive therapy has been successful for more than 75 percent of our patients with chronic nerve pain, it does not significantly reduce or eliminate pain or everyone, unfortunately.

We have seen marked success (pain reduction or remission) for children, teens, adults and seniors battling these neuropathic pain conditions:

  • Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Neck Pain
  • Foot Pain
  • Failed Back Surgery Syndrome
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Chemotherapy associated Cancer Pain – CIPN
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome – CRPS
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Neuropathic Pain/Neuropathy – General
  • Phantom Limb Syndrome
  • Post Shingles Pain – PHN
  • Pudendal (Gynecologic) Pain

Calmare is a ‘provider dependent therapy. Is your doctor Calmare Certified?

When will my pain level start to decrease?

In most cases, we see by treatment 3-4 if a patient’s neuropathy will be significantly minimized or a pain-free state can be achieved. Many patients experience pain relief as early as 10 minutes into their first treatment session. As the number of treatment sessions increases, the duration of pain relief is prolonged.

What if my pain comes back?

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.

Is Calmare technology comparable to a TENS unit?

No. The Calmare® MC-5A device creates a low energy electrical impulse which travels through the patient’s nerves delivering a “no-pain” signal to the brain.

This scrambles (disrupts) the brain’s misfiring pain signal that the area of pain is normal and eventually results in prolonged pain relief.

TENS units are self-use devices that can temporarily lessen pain but when discontinued provide no lasting pain resolution.

Mother and Daughter Travel to the US for Calmare Therapy

September, 2019

Megan and her mother took a chance and a plane ride from Canada for her to try Calmare after a difficult 4-year battle with CRPS.

In the video below, Megan describes the laundry list of therapies and pain medications she took before heading to the US to work with Dr. Michael Cooney, a leading provider of Calmare Therapy specializing in CRPS cases.

When she arrived in New Jersey during July 2019, Megan’s pain level was near a 10/10.

Meet two brave women on a mission.

How to Learn More About Calmare Scrambler Therapy

We handle pain therapy a little differently than most pain management clinics.

We take a personal approach from day one.

If you or a loved one has tried pain medications and neuropathic pain treatments without success (reduction of pain and related physical symptoms), don’t give up hope.

The majority of chronic pain patients we help have been right where you are now.

First and foremost, we’d like to learn more about your nerve pain battle.

After you’ve reviewed our website and learned how Calmare works–and what type of medical conditions are appropriate for therapy, complete the eCard below, email us privately at info@calmaretherapynj.com or call our clinic at 201.933.4440 and we’ll put you directly in touch with our clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney, who personally speaks by phone with every potential patient.

THE FACTS

The truth of the matter is Calmare is not right for every patient who wishes to undergo scrambler therapy.

After your video or phone consultation, if Dr. Cooney does not determine scrambler therapy has a strong probability of significantly reducing or eliminating your chronic pain, he will not approve you for treatment.

But you never know until you reach out, have faith and continue your quest to win the war on pain.
