It’s been mighty quiet around here since these two CRPS warriors left the building.
Laurie, left, from the west coast, was here for Calmare booster treatments and met new patient Megan from Calgary, who treated after her each day.
So great when our patients can meet others waging the same war.

To find out if Calmare scrambler therapy may be a via pain management solution to defeat your medication or treatment-resistant chronic pain, call our New Jersey clinic, located 15 minutes outside New York City, at 201-933-4440 to speak with our clinical director about your medical history and your case.
After sustaining a bone bruise in 2011, 21-year-old Sara was eventually diagnosed with CRPS, which progressed to full body CRPS as the years progressed and her treatment efforts were unsuccessful.
She sought treatment from outstanding healthcare providers, including the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), where she underwent several rounds of physical therapy and occupational therapy.
But her pain level, ranging from 4 to 9 /10, persisted.
She also battled additional RSD symptoms including:
Allodynia (pain that results from a stimulus that is not normally painful, like a piece of light fabric grazing the skin)
Intermittent tingling sensations
Poor sleep quality
Sensitivity to temperature changes
Dr. Michael Cooney Performs 10 Calmare Therapy Treatments
Sara heard about Dr. Cooney online and watched Calmare NJ USA patient reviews on YouTube, particularly cases which involved people battling full body CRPS.
She had already tried traditional medical treatments without success; from her perspective, it was time to try an alternative pain management solution.
In early January 2017, Sara arrived here in New Jersey and began daily treatments which lasted about 35-minutes each. Her therapy sessions were set for the same time each day. She started feeling less pain after the first treatment, which occurs more often than you might expect.
By session number five, her physical symptoms began to diminish, the span of time her pain was lessened grew longer, and her overall pain level continued to decrease.
Last Friday, the college student completed her treatment series and left at a 0 /
10, pain-free, for the first time in years. But that’s not all–all of Sara’s additional physical symptoms (noted above) were also eliminated.
“Sara’s case was a textbook outcome that we pray every Calmare patient experiences,” says Dr.
Cooney. “She had been in pain from CRPS for six years since a minor injury derailed her life. I could not be happier with her outcome.”
Sara has kindly offered to create a video review of her Calmare experience. But, for now, she’s focusing on getting back to school, socializing with friends and living the full life that any 20-something young woman deserves.
Are You Batting CRPS or RSD?
Our clinical director, Dr. Michael Cooney, and his partner, Robert Kelly, MD, have successfully treated hundreds of children, teens, adults and seniors with this debilitating chronic disease. But it is not right for everyone, nor does it always provide the outcome that Sara experienced, unfortunately.
But countless patients have been able to “get their lives back again” and resume living pain-free, or live with a significantly reduced, sustained level of pain.

I took a few days of R & R with my family last week but, to be honest, I was eager to get back and check-in on my existing Calmare scrambler therapy patients and start our standard 10-treatment series protocol for a lovely woman who arrived here last weekend from Perth, Australia. She began treatment on Monday, April 28.
She was diagnosed with chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS) in 2012 after knee surgery. Her CRPS condition expanded into her left leg and eventually up to her right arm.
We began corresponding earlier this year and she ultimately took the long, long 24-hour plane ride (particularly with her chronic pain condition) from Perth to New York City.
When she arrived, her pain level bounced between 7 – 9 . Thus, our challenge is substantial. After three Calmare treatments, I can say, “So far, so very good.” I look forward to updating you on her progress going forward.
Last night, (with the chair next to my air conditioning vent and two fans blowing on me due to the incredible heat wave we’re experiencing…) I was thinking about a patient I am treating this week from Louisiana.
A few years ago, my patients were locals from the Bergen County, New Jersey area. My sole purpose for introducing Calmare was to offer a drug-free, pain-free alternative treatment just for my own patients who did not respond to PT or chiropractic therapy. (I have been in pain management for a long time and still don’t believe drugs are the solution for acute or chronic neuropathy).
Little did I know that my certification as a Calmare provider would open the door to patients from around the U.S. and even the world. Today, our staff spends a good portion of each day helping out-of-town patients secure travel and local accommodations near our office. From California to Mississippi, Maryland and Indiana, we have met wonderful people from just about every state.
Then, just this morning, we confirmed our first patient coming next month from Australia.
The MC-5A machine has the capacity to help so many people living in pain every minute of every day. Can it help everyone? Unfortunately, no. But I am consistently seeing significant decreases in pain levels (as well as pain levels reduced to 0) in 80 percent of the patients I am treating.
Way back when, after I introduced Calmare for my own patients here in my little corner of New Jersey, I had no idea the geographic doors it would open. I am honored. More importantly, we are more determined (than ever) to get the word out and help people from anywhere and everywhere. Welcome all. Let’s get to work.
“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.”

“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!”
