Scrambler therapy helps people with fibromyalia pain and symptoms

March 1, 2018

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney, Clinical Director

I have been treating people in pain for more than 30 years. Providing successful pain relief for fibromyalgia sufferers has been especially challenging because many, if not most, therapies are often unsuccessful.

In the worst case scenario, you could be worse.

As a result, people with fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) are dependent on pain medications for relief, which can introduce its own set of problems and ongoing expenses.

The chronic nature of fibromyalgia symptoms interferes with job performance and attendance, personal relationships and ultimately dampens the overall quality of life.

Women are ten times more likely to develop fibromyalgia.

FDA-cleared Calmare scrambler therapy uses a drug-free, non-invasive, biophysical scrambler therapy to transmit a “no pain” message from the brain to the area in pain using electrodes similar to what you might use for an EKG.

Men Battle Different Fibromyalgia Symptoms 

After treating more than 1,000 patients since 2011, we’ve experienced an overall success rate of 80 percent, which includes people living with fibromyalgia.

What does “success rate” mean?

In order to be considered part of our 80% success rate, the patient is required to achieve an outcome that reflects a very significant decrease in pain which is sustained for an increasing period of time after each treatment.

In several cases, patients leave treatment at a 0/10 on the traditional pain scale.

Scrambler therapy is not a “miracle” treatment

But let me be clear─Calmare is not a “one-time-only” miracle cure.

Our FDA-cleared therapy is administered during a 10-treatment series, each lasting about an hour, which includes preparation, treatment and recovery.

In nearly all cases, the patient experiences no pain or discomfort during or after therapy.

The importance of your Calmare Therapy treatment provider

Should you be qualified to undergo Calmare Therapy for fibromyalgia or another type of pain management, a word of advice:

Calmare Certified Location LogoResearch and confirm your therapy is performed by a doctor who has advanced expertise in understanding the musculoskeletal system and how pain is communicated between the brain and the receptors in the body.

Ensure they have successfully treated several patients with your specific condition.

If your therapy is performed by someone with less expertise, your results may be diminished.

Also, there are currently only seven providers in the U.S. who have been certified to perform Calmare Therapy, including myself.

Calmare Helps Betsy Overcome Post-Surgical Chronic Pain

August 22, 2016

Betsy from New Jersey thought having back surgery would finally end her chronic back pain. After undergoing a laminectomy (an operation to remove the back of one or more vertebrae, usually to relieve pressure on nerves), her specific back pain was alleviated, but she experienced new pain running from her back down to her feet.

She was prescribed Lyrica, in increasing dosages, followed by cortisone shots. Neither reduced her unremitting pain.

Betsy’s husband grew increasingly worried, as his formerly vivacious and spirited wife was experiencing increasing pain and limited mobility.

They heard about Calmare Therapy, the FDA-cleared, drug-free, pain-free treatment, which combats several types of chronic pain, including post-op surgical neuropathy.

Betsy came to Rutherford, in Bergen County, NJ, and completed the 10 treatment cycle in July 2016.

Dr. Cooney, Betsy and her husband describe her case and eventual outcome after treatment:

Pattie from Australia beats her CRPS with Calmare Therapy

Pattie S.

By Dr. Michael Cooney

Pattie and her husband have just completed her Calmare Therapy and left us to begin their long trek back to Perth, Western Australia. Pattie underwent a total knee replacement a few years ago resulting in an eventual CRPS diagnosis.

Doctors recommend SCS

She knew the myriad of narcotics she was prescribed for chronic neuropathy were not lessening her symptoms or helping to stop the pain that was  spreading throughout her body.  When doctors eventually suggested implanting a spinal cord stimulator (SCS), she and her husband concluded it was time to take matters into their own hands and find a solution to her CRPS on their own.

After weeks of research and networking across the globe with others suffering with CRPS, they consistently observed a consistent message from several people who achieved a successful medical outcome with the help of Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment.

Enduring a 24-hour flight in search of pain relief

This determined couple conducted interviews with Calmare doctors in the U.S. They spoke with me on several occasions about my personal treatment protocol for RSD and CRPS patients. Eventually, they decided to make the herculean trip here to  New York / New Jersey.

Pattie had extensive pain in several regions of her body along with swelling, discoloration and ongoing sweating spells; she was also   physically debilitated by all the medications she had been using (up to 30 pills per day).

We began daily scrambler therapy treatments each lasting about an hour. I determined after the second treatment that we were already making positive progress as she acknowledged a reduction in pain in certain areas. Slowly, after every therapy session, Pattie’s pain reduction lasted for longer stretches of time.

Pattie achieves 0 pain and dissolution of her CRPS symptoms

After 11 treatments (she achieved a 0 pain level by the 10th treatment) she left the U.S. pain-free in all parts of her body–including her knee–for the first time since her surgery three years ago.

Pattie, an intelligent wife and mother of four children, has generously contributed a video diary of her Calmare experience to share with other CRPS patients who may be in search of a drug-free, pain-free treatment for their chronic pain. We’ll be sharing her story with you very soon.

This couple endured a 24 hour plane ride to come here for the Calmare MC-5A scrambler therapy treatment and I am delighted to say she left us as a lighter person with no pain, which is the way it should be.

Stay tuned for her great story.  Pattie has  inspired us all to do everything we can to spread the word about Calmare scrambler therapy to the CRPS / RSD community.

Pattie offers this advice:  “You just need to try this because it may just give you back the life you enjoyed before CRPS stole it away.”

U.S. Military recommends Calmare Therapy for pain treatment

military-logo-header1We reported late last year that the U.S. Military was piloting Calmare Therapy as a new treatment for wounded soldiers at its largest hospitals in the world. To their credit, the Military was one of the first to get on-board with the MC-5A scrambler therapy as a means to alleviate severe pain without the use of invasive treatments or drugs.

Today, the U.S. Military is one of the largest providers of Calmare Therapy in the world. The Calmare device is offered and available at medical centers and hospitals in all branches of service.  Military providers use Calmare to treat several conditions including:

  • failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS);
  • sciatic and lumbar pain
  • phantom limb syndrome
  • pudendal pain
  • post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN)
  • post-surgical neuropathic pain
  • brachial plexus neuropathy
  • lower back pain (LBP)
  • complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS or RSD)
  • cancer-related pain.

The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this week that Calmare was selected as one of the pain care training providers to our nation’s military personnel. The FDA-cleared, 510-K cleared and CE-marked medical device was highlighted as a “promising pain management device of choice”.

Treatment for Chemotherapy Pain – Calmare Therapy Making News

By Dr. Michael J. Cooney

It is one of the great frustrations of healthcare–pain.  And, often, those who suffer the most live every moment of every day in pain. This could not be more true for cancer patients who have endured chemotherapy in order to eradicate the cancer from their bodies. Often, the chemo is successful and the patient’s cancer is in remission. But these “soldiers against cancer” are often left with a weakened, damaged body as a result of the powerful after-affects of the drugs.

This condition, chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy, called CIPN, has no real cure. There are pain killing drugs (more drugs) of course, along with a few alterative therapies can help alleviate some of the pain. But there is no cure for CIPN.

That’s why the news from several studies underway, including the University of Wisconsin, as well as the Mayo Clinic (3/4 way through this video, Dr. Charles Loprinzi discusses the scrambler therapy study which they have in progress now 11.2011)  are so important. These centers’ studies are finding that Calmare’s scrambler therapy is producing significantly positive results in minimizing or even eliminating pain from chemotherapy treatment. These findings, starting to filter in from our country’s most respected cancer centers, serve as a light at the end of a long, dark tunnel of pain for our friends, family and colleagues living with the painful after-effects of chemotherapy treatment.
