Ten-year-old with CRPS Walks Again after Calmare Scrambler Therapy

September 21, 2018

Ten-year-old Kiera is one of the reasons we love coming to work every day.

Last month, she traveled with her mother from Canada to our New Jersey clinic, arriving in a wheelchair due to a spreading CRPS condition and Lyme Disease.

Kiera had not been able to walk for 53 days due to the pain intensity, her mother confirmed.

She and her mother stayed for 14 Calmare treatments instead of the standard 10 treatments.

We are elated to report she can stick that wheelchair in the back of the garage from now on…

Her pain level sitting is a 0 and standing/walking is now a 2.

Better yet, we’ll let mother and daughter share their experience:

Donna’s Nerve Entrapment and CRPS Pain Reduced by Calmare

August 28, 2018

CRPS
Donna Sisco, left, is shown with Dr. Michael Cooney and her sister Debbie.

From traditional pain management and prescription medications to platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, from acupuncture to the use of a tens unit, nothing could reduce Donna Sisco’s chronic nerve pain after total knee replacement surgery in 2012.

At age 61, she began to feel that hope was lost. But after finding an online support group for people living with CRPS, she heard about Calmare scrambler therapy and the success of Dr. Michael Cooney at Calmare Therapy NJ USA.

With her sister along for support, the siblings flew 3,000 miles to New Jersey with equal amounts of hope and skepticism.

Why Diagnostic BrainSpan™ is a key asset to your Calmare Therapy protocol.

“I can’t blame patients who feel reservations about Calmare,” says Dr. Cooney. “These people have tried traditional pain management, bags full of prescription medication and even more invasive procedures–and still live with chronic pain.”

When Donna arrived in New Jersey, her pain level was a consistent 7/10 and she battled with the additional side effects of CRPS–pins and needles, sensitivity to touch, hair loss.

Steadily each day, she had a scrambler therapy treatment, lasting about 35 minutes. The therapy has no side effects and is pain-free.

After 10 scrambler therapy treatments (once daily), her pain level steadily decreased to a 0-2/10 by the time she left our clinic last week.

Preparing for Your Upcoming Calmare Therapy Treatments

April 24, 2017

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

Treatment Room BestAs we prepare for the busy summer months ahead, I thought it would be a good time to recap how patients and families can optimally prepare for their upcoming Calmare treatments with us here in New Jersey.

The standard treatment protocol is one daily treatment for 10 days (excluding Sunday and some Saturdays) each lasting about 35 minutes each.

Months or years after the treatment series, some people require subsequent booster treatments (generally one up to four treatments). They should also follow the protocol below. (Keep in mind, in most cases, the need for Calmare booster therapy should decrease over time).

Preparing for Your Calmare Therapy
  1. Fill out your New Patient Forms in advance. You can forward them to us by fax (201-933-8159); send them by mail; or scan and email them to calmarenj@gmail.com.
  2. Send or bring along any objective tests (X-rays, EEG, MRI, EMG or cat scans) for our pre-treatment study.
  3. Wean off as many medications (i.e. anticonvulsants and antidepressants) as possible, working in partnership with your prescribing doctor/s. (Note: Each patient case is unique in this regard. I will talk with you personally about your specific medication protocol and how best to manage this issue.)
  4. Do not use any skin lotions 24-hours before or at any time during your treatment cycle.
  5. Wear loose, comfortable clothing; bring some hand-held entertainment to occupy you during each treatment.
  6. Consider keeping a journal about your experience and discuss how you feel each day during therapy.
  7. Make flight and hotel reservations well in advance. We provide a list of lodging options which have received high marks from patients. Ensure the hotel can provide transportation to/from the clinic or recommend a quality taxi service. You may also wish to download the Uber or Lyft apps for affordable transportation services.

Our collective goal is to significantly lessen your pain and reduce or eliminate reliance on prescription medications or invasive treatments.

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:

Would you like to find out if Calmare Therapy might be right for you?

Burn victim hero tells “The Doctors” how Calmare Therapy diminished his nerve pain

the doctors 2Dave, burned over 90% of his body as a child, survives but lives with chronic nerve pain.

His chiropractor, who uses Calmare Therapy, suggests he try the scrambler treatment which would painlessly scramble the pain messages to/from his brain and break the pain signal.

“The Doctors” television program interviewed Dave and shared his secret to pain relief.

davedaveThis remarkable man is why we few doctors here in the U.S. stand behind Calmare Therapy. Again and again, it lessens or alleviates several different types of neuropathic pain when the drugs and painful procedures fail.

It is stories like these that keep us inspired and even more encouraged to help everyone learn about this treatment.

Thank you, Dave, for sharing your remarkable bravery. You can also watch his interview here:
